The release of the new iPhone 5 was one more Apple’s opportunity to beat competitors, introduce a new technological miracle to the whole world and gave back the leading position in the mobile market like ever before. But it turned out iPhone 5 didn’t set the world on fire as it is short of many features that other smartphones have already got over time. For a long time Apple strikes us with great marketing skills, the way they produce their goods but unfortunately iPhone 5 became a disappointment for many customers. Here are 6 reasons why it fails:
Apple is always considered one the best designers in the world. The last iPhone smartphones have the similar appearance. Optically the design of iPhone 5 looks like iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S. Actually Apple made some changes in smartphone’s design but it looks outdated and boring.
It is expected that the threshold of iPhone 5 will bring many great and new features that many people crave so long. As a fabulous trick for iPhone 5 they presented the camera’s panorama mode. Nowadays lots of smartphones have it.
Apple imploded Facebook but it wasn’t worthy as it’s been some years late again.
Siri was improved and you can now start apps by voice but it doesn’t look like accurate and even stressing to utilize it as a personal assistant.
It was a real surprise that iPhone 5 doesn’t have near field communication and wireless charging as even Nokia Lumia 920 and Samsung Galaxy S III have both the features.
iPhone 5 pricing differences are darn unearthly. The model with 16 GB makes up 199$ that sounds quite baseless in comparison with the model with 32 GB that costs 299$ or 64GB with 399$. Because of the expandable storage default buyers have to spend much money on the base price of iPhone 5 to get a special model.
iOS 6 doesn’t bring in any great improvements as expected. Earlier on, iOS was the best mobile operating system but today Microsoft and Google are quite competitive.
iOS 6 doesn’t concentrate on iPhone 5 as it takes all OS approach that is obsolete. Actually iOS and Windows are similar in customization while Google’s Android OS is built in many other ways. The Google’s developers put lots of efforts to make the mobile operating system better for users. iOS has the jailbreak option that allows customization through Cydia but it still pulls down the user’s experience. Android has the same problem but they get more stable custom firmwares like AOKP and CyanogenMod.
The new iPhone 5 has a 1136 x 640 resolution at 326 pixels per 4-inch display. The old display with 3.5 was quite difficult to use as it wasn’t much space for apps and it was fusty to navigate for the display size. But everybody looks forward to a 720 HD resolution display that can be useful for most videos in HD.
It turned out that for five years Apple made just minor size enlargement as the original display of iPhone was 3.5. Does it mean Apple falls in stagnation?
Apple has created their own maps that work worse than Google’s ones. It would be better to use Bing or Nokia maps as they work much better. Although Apple will do the best to improve the mapping system but the main point is that people need them right now. They won’t expect when Apple will finally upgrade the system and they will just use the other maps.
Coming to conclusion we should recognize that the new iPhone 5 is just the upgrade of iPhone 4S. Yes iPhone 5 is better that iPhone 4S but it doesn’t put the world into a flutter.
