iPhone 5 Facts/Rumors

Recommended Posts

Of course it has a 4 inch display. Their tech stays behind the times so people will purchase the next thing a year later.

 

Zing...

Apple Iphone does not have!

It's not too late. I have over 600 apps for iPhone and I'm using an Android cell phone, lol. And yes, I have bought numerous apps for my Evo Shift, and some were duplicates.

 

And I don't know how anyone could ever get used to swype. Quite annoying to me.

I'm curious to how many iphone users wish their iphone had a bigger screen. Although they may not admit it, I bet there are quite a few that do. Also, didn't steve jobs say something along the lines of, "The world does not want a bigger screen on their phone." I know he said something like that when the big-screen cell phone craze began. I wonder if he/apple really believed that, or if it was just more of their stubbornness/arrogance.

I think it would be fine with most customers to make a bigger screen, as long as it isn't too drastic. If they went to 3.75 or 4 without making too much of an overall size increase, it will be well received. If they went to 4.5+, it would turn some people off, but they wouldn't be that dumb. Apple knows what they've doing.

I think 4" in some form factor will be the sweet spot that will keep everyone in Apple land satisfied.

I'd buy the iPhone (whatever #), if it had a larger screen. I'm hoping for at least a 4" screen, same form factor, and same set of aftermarket accessories.

 

One of the guys in my office has one of those battery pack cases which adds about 3/4" on top and bottom of device, and about a full day of battery life on top of the stock battery.

I'm not so sure they can stuff good LTE antenna's in the current form factor, although I could be wrong seeing that rumors going both ways have been posted around the internet.

True, and I'll take a larger form factor. My biggest pet peeve with the current design is the wasted space. I want a larger screen, and less plastics.

While we are on the topic of form factors, check out these concept drawings of a Liquidmetal iPhone.

Hate to say it, but that, like many other of the iPhone design rumors, is sounding pretty far fetched, imo.

Probably so, but Apple does have the rights to Liquidmetal at least. I guess we will see for sure what rumors are right and which ones were totally fake when the next iPhone is released.

Actually, I must correct myself. Apple has a contract with Liquidmetal to license their material, and it's possible that the next iPhone or even the next MacBooks to use the material for their cases. It will be interesting to see what Apple has up their sleeves this year.

Here is another concept gallery of Liquidmetal iPhone concepts.

This looks really cool.

 

Beautiful looking concept!

 

I just hate how so much space gets wasted. I don't want to make this a "VS" tread, but the leaked images of the GS3 show that Samsung got it right.

I am not too fond of the idea of a virtual home button, but I do like this design.

Virtual buttons are no good for me either, as I have a hard enough time with "pressing" the home button or the search button on my EVO Shift all the time anyway.

Here's a rendering of what it may look like if Apple goes with the 4" screen.

That's a really odd design.

I just found this on Sprints site this morning. Have they advertised the iPhone 4 this way before?

Not odd if Apple is going to announce the new iPhone at WWDC, which is just a few weeks away now. However I think it is just a generic marketing blurb, because IMHO Apple will keep the 4 around as the basic "free" handset.

That's what I thought too. But I don't think the next iPhone will be previewed at WWDC. Just iOS 6.

Yeah, I have a feeling the new iPhone won't be seen/leaked till late August, Sept.

    • Something else I forgot to mention, the V40 is enabled for calling plus on LTE and wifi, and it has been working very well so far. I usually keep it disabled for WiFi, since my WiFi is a bit weak in some parts of my house.
    • A little anecdotal note on radio performance. I am currently a location with known poor coverage. We have 3 new phones - iPhone XS, XS Max, and LG V40. The iPhones are having no trouble picking up a usable LTE signal inside, but the V40 only connects to 3G unless I go outside, and the data is barely usable. It is band 26 LTE (800MHz) based on Signal Check on the V40 when I go outside and pick up the LTE signal. Actually now that I think about it, the V40 is probably on 1xrtt inside, not 3G, because Signal Check is showing 800 for both CDMA and LTE.
    • I second the LG V30+. I've had mine for over a year now, and I'm very pleased with the RF performance. I too live in a somewhat rural area, and also travel quite a bit, and I haven't been disappointed at all. RF performance is high on my list of must-haves when shopping for a new phone. The V30+ also makes use of all the current network technologies offered by Sprint, as far as I know. I haven't been able to test out VoLTE yet (not live in my home area), but it's on the compatibility list. I haven't been shopping, but I have seen the V30+ offered at very good prices recently.
    • Yeah it is. East of Sacramento

    • Is this in Cali? The T-Mo roaming is great news, but it would be nice to confirm that USCC roaming is still working on the Pixel devices.
