Apple iPhone 5 Arrives – Hands On and First Impressions
The iPhone 5 has arrived in select locations, and I got to play around with it for about an hour. Here are some photos and some videos of Apple’s iPhone 5.
My first impressions on the phone were best described as, “Meh..”
I have a video demo of the camera that I’ll be uploading later and will post below here, but so far it’s very nice. The only thing I felt was lacking was the ability to capture burst photos while holding down the shutter. You can crank out photos as fast as you can tap the camera button, but you tend to end up with jittery pictures. My HTC One S seemed to have the advantage with respect to the camera features. The panoramic photo feature was also nice, operating almost exactly like it does on the HTC One Series phones. The stitching of photos works fairly well as long as you don’t have a lot of people in the shot and you keep the camera moving steady.
