Product Description

Product Description

A remarkably slim design that still makes room for a larger display and a faster chip. Ultra-fast wireless that doesn’t sacrifice battery life. And all-new headphones designed to sound great and fit comfortably. So much went into this iPhone. So you could get even more out of it

It’s hard to believe a phone so thin could offer so many features: a larger display, a faster chip, the latest wireless technology, an 8MP iSight camera and more. All in a beautiful aluminium body designed and made with an unprecedented level of precision. iPhone 5 measures a mere 7.6 millimetres thin and weighs just 112 grams.1 That’s 18 per cent thinner and 20 per cent lighter than iPhone 4S. The only way to achieve a design like this is by relentlessly considering (and reconsidering) every single detail — including the details you don’t see.

Anyone can make a larger smartphone display. But if you go large for large’s sake, you end up with a phone that feels oversized, awkward and hard to use. iPhone 5 features a 4-inch display designed the right way: it’s bigger, but it’s the same width as iPhone 4S. So everything you’ve always done with one hand — typing on the keyboard, for instance — you can still do with one hand. On a larger canvas that lets you see more of every web page. More of your inbox. More events on your calendar. Even more apps on your Home screen.

This isn’t just a larger display. It’s a larger Retina display. At 326 pixels per inch, it has a pixel density so high, your eye can’t distinguish individual pixels. And as stunning as the Retina display is on the iPhone 4S, this one gives you 18 per cent more pixels for an impressive 1136x640 resolution. Colours get a boost too, with colour saturation that’s 44 per cent greater than before. So with iPhone 5, the games you play, the words you read, the images you see and the apps you love look and feel incredibly vivid and lifelike. For big-time entertainment, iPhone 5 lets you watch widescreen HD video in all its glory — without letterboxing.

iPhone 5 supports more networks all over the world. That includes advanced networks such as HSPA, HSPA+ and DC-HSDPA. Browse, download and stream content at ultra-fast speeds. Dual-band 802.11n wireless connectivity accelerates your Wi-Fi experience too — up to 150 Mbps.

With the new A6 chip, just about everything you do on iPhone 5 is noticeably faster — up to twice as fast compared with the A5 chip. So apps launch, web pages load and email attachments appear almost instantly.

The A6 chip also offers graphics performance that’s up to twice as fast as the A5. So you can power through graphics-intensive apps and games. And enjoy higher frame rates for smoother, more realistic gameplay.

Not only is the A6 chip custom designed to be fast, it’s custom designed to work with iOS 6 to be extremely power efficient. So even at its accelerated speed, iPhone 5 has more than enough battery power to last throughout the day — up to 8 hours of browsing on a mobile data connection, up to 8 hours of talk time and up to 10 hours of video playback time.

At the core of every iPhone, iPad and iPod touch is iOS. It includes all the built-in apps you use every day and all the intuitive technology — like Multi-Touch and Siri — that makes iPhone so advanced.6 With every free iOS update comes even more capability for your devices. You’ll find the latest version, iOS 6, already installed on iPhone 5. So straight out of the box, you get more than 200 new features to make the things you do every day even better.

Product Description

Apple EarPods are just the beginning of the improved audio experience on iPhone 5. It's designed with three microphones: one on the front, one on the back, and one on the bottom. The front and back mics work together to achieve beamforming - a technique that helps iPhone focus on sound from the desired location for clearer audio. New noise-canceling technology reduces background noise. So when you hold iPhone up to your ear in a loud room, you hear what matters most: the voice on the other end. iPhone is th

1.0 out of 5 stars Wrong model 10 April 2013
Colour Name:Black| Size Name:16GB|Verified Purchase
I was sent the US model instead of the UK model. Do check your iPhone 5- I asked Apple directly and they confirmed that it will work on regular 3G networks, but it is incompatible with UK 4G/LTE which will roll out soon (it's made for US 4G bands, which are different). You don't want to be stuck with an iPhone that can't do 4G.
The differences? The US model:
-is A1428, while the UK model is A1429 (i.e. on the back where it says Designed by Apple in California Assembled in China Model A1428). You need A1429 in the UK.
-will have a 2-pin US plug/adaptor in the sealed iPhone box. The seller may place a 3-pin UK plug/adaptor in an outer box as well.
Just thought to share, don't lose future functionality over a few pounds.

1.0 out of 5 stars It's a USA version 1 Oct 2013
Colour Name:Black| Size Name:16GB|Verified Purchase
Received today. Opened box. It's a USA version and not a UK version. Awaiting courier to collect it as I am returning it.
When there are 2 versions, 1 for the UK and 1 for the USA it is disappointing Amazon allow this.
I searched on Amazon and found the 32GB version. Unfortunately this was also the USA version.
Visited Carphone Warehouse and ordered the correct UK version for £9 less.

Colour Name:WHITE| Size Name:64|Verified Purchase
The phone should not be upgraded from iOS6 to iOS7, it ruins the battery performance, and the home button stopped working.

I brought an iPhone 5 unlocked SIM free from SMARTPHONESUK LIMITED on the 18/09/2013 which recently the home button stopped working properly, and I wished to get the phone serviced by Apple under the 1 year warranty, but when I checked with the serial code with Apples online check and phoned them, they stated the phone had been registered over 1 year before in 2012. I brought it from SMARTPHONESUK LIMITED who when I requested a refund said no and said the phone was not sold with a warranty anyway. which is totally illegal. I am currently in the process of hopefully recovering my money from Amazon directly.

This was their reply email, clearly breaking the law:

I cannot offer you a refund or replacement for the item in question;
1. You purchased the item 4 months ago.
2. There was no mention of a warranty on this item in the product details and furthermore this item did not come with a warranty of any kind.
3. The problem you mention can occur as a result of normal use and cannot therefore be considered to be a fault.

Kind regards
Mo Collins

1.0 out of 5 stars Not a UK iPhone - Beware! 21 May 2013
Colour Name:Black| Size Name:64 GB|Verified Purchase
I was initially excited to take delivery of this iPhone 5, but soon discovered that it was the US version. This is not an issue in itself if you only plan to use 3G and 2G, but it will not be compatible with UK 4G which is clearly going to be an issue as the 4G coverage in the UK begins to expand over the next couple of years.

I have since purchased a UK iPhone from the Apple store (expect to pay ~£50 more) and I have to say it is a fantastic piece of kit compared to my old iPhone 4.

It's a shame this seller is not being completely upfront about the fact that this is a US iPhone and what the implications are for future 4G reception!

1.0 out of 5 stars BEWARE - THIS IS NOT NOT NOT UNLOCKED 20 Jun 2013
Colour Name:White| Size Name:Size:123.8mmx58.6mmx7.6mm Weight:112grams|Verified Purchase
I bought this to travel with, and now I am abroad, I discover that - despite the unlocked description - the phone is locked to Three. I could have got an iPhone free on contract with Three, so I would never have bought this if I had known the truth. I am really disappointed with the seller, and have thrown all this money away, due to his misdescription. When I get back to the UK I plan to report this to the Trading Standards Authority.

Very doubtful that the product was genuine. Pacaging hads no Apple logos. Nothing came with it at all apart from the charger. The product did not match up to the illustration. The company never sent the instruction booklet they promised and were rude to me at the end of the day. I would not give them a rating of any sort. Dreadful. It cost me to send it back so I was out of pocket as well.
