If you do a little research online regarding the features of iPhone 5, you would come to know that Apple has introduced quite a few revolutionizing enhancements in iPhone 5 which makes it a more desirable and classy smart phone when compared to any of iPhone`s previous versions. We will try to make this comparison as simple as possible so that even a non-technical person is able to understand the actual difference between the 2 iPhones.

  • First off, iPhone 5 is much lighter and slimmer than iPhone 4S. If you have used iPhone 4S, you would know the weak signal issue that it had, in iPhone 5 Apple has addressed  that issue by changing the dimensions a little and it is reported that in iPhone 5 users are not experiencing that issue anymore.
  • iPhone 4 used 3G network, while iPhone 5 is using 4G network for connectivity and hence the video chatting and other functions are more smooth and lightweight with iPhone 5.
  • Photo and Video viewing in iPhone 5 is also incredibly enhanced when compared to that of iPhone 4S.
  • iPhone 5 is much more durable and secure than iPhone 4S, with a  shatter proof and scratch free screen. Apple has also introduced the feature of Drop-Resistance in the screen of iPhone 5 which was not seen in previous versions of iPhone.
  • Here comes the real meat – iPhone 5 comes with a built in application for GPS. Previously users of iPhone 4S and others had to install a 3rd party GPS application for tracking the phone. But now they have it all setup for them in iPhone 5.
  • Battery life of iPhone 5 is much more than that of iPhone 4S as well.
  • iPhone 5 comes with a dual core processor and its processing speed is lightning fast. If you thought that iPhone 4S was the fastest you could get, than you have to try iPhone 5 out right now, trust me, you will be amazed!
