Does the iPhone 5 live up to the hype?
Not only is the display taller, but the pixels are closer to the surface.
The camera isn't a dramatic upgrade, but Apple improved it in at least one important area.
The iPhone 5 (bottom) is 1.7mm thinner than the iPhone 4S.
Apple's redesigned earbuds deliver on the promise of better fit and better audio.
Games like Real Racing 3 are inching closer to console-quality.
Buzz for the iPhone 5 began way back in 2010. Many then assumed that the iPhone 4's sequel would be a major redesign; instead we got the incrementally-updated iPhone 4S. It brought a much-improved camera, a faster chip, and Siri, but it wasn't a breakthrough update. We would have to wait a full 27 months after the iPhone 4 to get our hands on the next big refresh. Now that it's here, was the iPhone 5 worth the wait? To sum this review up in one word: absolutely.
