Those Tech Guys have researched the iPhone 5 and its sellout of initial stock in September. Over 5 million units were reported sold during the initial release and new units have been manufactured. While no sales data has been released for Christmas, the iPhone 5 is expected to sell out again before the end of the holiday season. Those Tech Guys found that one retailer online had these phones in stock and at a lower price than the Apple online store.
The iPhone 5 is superior to the earlier versions according to reports online. One of the the most commented on features by actual users online is the dual core processor. This technology has been used inside of other Apple products for the past 7 years.
Apple decided to upgrade its processor in the iPhone 5 to the new dual core processor to speed up this phone.
Those Tech Guys reviewed the iPhone 5 features and found that the size of the storage space has increased from earlier versions. The ability to stream movies and audio over a mobile broadband connection does require a device with sufficient storage space.
The size of the storage has been upgraded from 8 GB in earlier models to 16 GB in the basic edition to ensure sufficient space is available.
High definition video is one of the features that users of the iPhone 5 receive. HD video is becoming more popular in both online and offline applications. The 4-inch retina display offers viewers of video or applications a clearer viewing area compared to other models. Those that are searching for a replacement for an iPhone 4 are likely to find the specs of the new iPhone 5 to be appealing.
The 225 hours of standby time for the new iPhone battery is one of its highlights apart from technological advancements according to Those Tech Guys. This extended up-time for a smartphone is not found on similar devices.
Some users of the iPhone 5 report this feature is one that has helped to resolve a tough purchasing decision between the iPhone, Samsung or Google Nexus phones.
The retail list price remains at $199 according to Those Tech Guys. The report released revealed that some dealers sell locked and unlocked iPhones. This feature provides the flexibility to switch phone carriers regardless of a person’s current provider. The prices were found to fluctuate with these models although top retailers typically sell locked iPhones.
Those Tech Guys are scheduled to continue to monitor the sales of the iPhone 5 for Christmas and add last minute price reductions or inventory changes to help consumers buying gifts online.
