Straight Talk iPhone 5 is a  latest version of touch screen based smart phone developed by Apple Inc. iPhone 5 is slimmer than the previous versions of Apple iPhones and it is also longer with a display of about 4 inches. The design of iPhone 5 is superb and mind blowing which includes a taller screen and metallic back. iPhone 5 is available in two colors – Black (Black and Slate color) and White (White and Silver color). The available capacities in iPhone 5 version are: 16 GB, 32 GB and 64 GB. The best thing you would mark when you take the iPhone 5 in your hand is that it is light in weight as compared to the previous versions of iPhones. The weight of iPhone 5 is just 112 grams.


On the back side of iPhone 5 you can see that the back panel of the iPhone 4S which was made only of glass has been replaced with a combination of metal and glass. Major part of the back is made of metal but the top and bottom parts are still made of glass. The 30 pin dock connector found in earlier versions of Apple iPhone has been replaced with a smaller lightning port. Apple developed a new alternative to dock connector after many years. Apple replaced the 30 pin dock connector with a smaller and compact alternative called Lightning. iPhone 5 uses Apple’s latest processor called Apple A6 which has updated Apple’s mobile operating system called iOS6. Apple Company claims that performance of iPhone 5 has been improved by about 2 times as compared to the iPhone 4S. The new A6 chip used in Apple iPhone 5 has 1.2GHz processor, while the iPhone 4S was only having 1GHz processor. This makes the use of iPhone 5 much faster and smoother. The graphics and touch sensitivity has improved a lot compared to older versions of Apple iPhones. With the addition of LTE (Long Term Evolution) support, the iPhone 5 can support 4G speeds. Apple is a very smart and intelligent company which thinks about its future and so it has incorporated the LTE support.
