The Verge has post their first hands on video of the iPhone 5 on the new Apple flagship, complete with that 4-inch Retina display, LTE, and new Lightning connector. Although the launch event did't brought us any surprise - all the features have been leaked already before, but the hands on experience seems amazing. According to The Verge, "it feels almost too light in the hand." Take a look.
"however; it's how thin and light it is. The 7.6mm, 112-gram chassis is incredibly sleek, and exceptionally light... it feels almost too light in the hand. This isn't just in comparison to the relatively heavy iPhone 4S — sure, the iPhone 5 may not be the thinnest phone out there as Apple claims — but this feels incredibly light against smartphones in general.
The iPhone 5 is still a sturdy and solid-feeling device, despite the weight loss. The back is primarily a slab of machined aluminum — as are the sides — but just as we saw in the leaks there are two strips of glass along the top and bottom of the device. These strips feel identical to the glass that drapes over the entire face of the device."
"Within the depths of San Francisco's Yerba Buena Center for the Arts all of the iPhones on hand are running on Wi-Fi, so we haven't yet had a chance to test LTE speeds. We can say that the device is noticeably faster than the iPhone 4S, however, thanks to that A6 processor. That's especially apparent when it comes to the camera, which certainly feels at least 40 percent faster than its predecessor. Of course, the iPhone 5's on hand were running the iOS 6 GM, and everything we saw today about the new operating system is the same as what was revealed back at WWDC — other than that extra row of icons."
