As we’ve all been expecting for months, Apple unveiled the iPhone 5 on Wednesday.
And with preorders set to begin Friday, the question is: Should you buy the new device? It depends.
The iPhone 5 is a vast improvement over the iPhone 4S and it’s sure to be another great and reliable Apple product. However, it is no longer the most technologically advanced phone.
Other devices have screens bigger than Apple’s with picture quality that’s just as good if not arguably better. Motorola even came out with a phone called the RAZR M that’s the size of the iPhone 4S yet has a screen bigger than the iPhone 5.
As for the iPhone 5’s other headline feature -- its 4G LTE connectivity -- that’s been available on Android phones for a couple of years now, so there’s nothing groundbreaking there.
