Yes, it is true that iPhone 5 has eventually launched. It is the latest entry into the smartphone line of Apple.

It is only 3.95 ounces which is approximately one ounce lighter then iPhone 4s. Because of the fact that it is lighter it gives a feeling of premium construction. The aluminium backing of iPhone 5 tends to give a more comfortable feeling to the person holding the smartphone compared to the glass backing of iPhone 4s and not to forget the fact that due to the glass backing this smartphone is more prone to fingerprints and smears. The only place that one can say the iPhone 5 has fallen down compared to iPhone 4s is the power button. Even though, iPhone 5 is taller compared to the predecessor, many people feel that they have to stretch to press the power button of the new smartphone.

When comparing the battery life then both can be ranked the same. Both of the devices are rated at 8 hours but on the other hand, iPhone 4s will give you 6 hours of 3G browsing while iPhone 5 will give 8 full hours of browsing on 3G and on LTE. What else would anyone want? No doubt technology has advanced so drastically.
