Now, we have the iPhone 5 with us. We know what it is actually providing us. So many hopes, so many ideas got changed from the users’ perspective. There is a group that says they are disappointed with the new iPhone. For them, there isn’t a special reason to change from their current smartphone to the iPhone 5.

People have started comparing it with the other available smartphones. My focus in this post is to discuss what is different in iPhone 5 as compared to the previous version. This logic can only or may provide us a real picture of whether the new iPhone has the “Wow” factor or not.

Now I am leaving to you, what is the big change in iPhone 5 as compared with the previous one? I believe we need to let it come to market. Let people start feeling it in their hands. Maybe at the moment, we have a feeling that there is not much of a significant difference, but maybe there will be some good changes on the software side. We all know that iOS 6 is also coming. Let’s give it some more time.
