Why buy an iPhone 5 this Christmas?

Updated on September 6, 2013

September will get over in no time and the festive months are going to start. Starting from Halloween, Christmas, and ending in the New Year, the season holds a lot of excitement, shopping, and fun and buying an iPhone 5 before the Near Year is the best gift that you will give to yourself or your loved ones.

After all you have worked hard for the whole year and this is the right time to reward yourself with some unique and new device that is not just a mobile phone but also works as your mini laptop/notebook, your connection with friends, family, and the online world, your work desk, and your creative inner self.

And the good news is that yes iPhone 5 has arrived and starting September 21 to the end of December, I don't know how many people would have laid their hands on this ultimate machine. So its better to hurry up and pre-order your iPhone 5 and if you want to take the advantage of buying an iPhone 4S selling on a discount, then do it now via the Amazon store.

The most amazing part is that iPhone 5 is bigger, better, and boasts a lot of new features such as the ability to click panoramic shots up to 28 megapixels which was not possible in Apple's previous devices. Also Apple has changed its CPU and GPU chip with the highest performance A6 processor in the market. Till now, no other device including any of the game stations, mobiles, or tablets have this feature. The benefit of A6 processor is that it is more efficient than other processors and has the ability to handle technologically advanced functions such as taking panoramic shots and running fully loaded applications, as it has two times enhancement of graphics and CPU speed than the A5 (older version). The chip utilizes less battery power and is small in size to make the overall phone light in weight.

Another important rectification from iPhone 4S are the redesigned or re-modified EarPods for iPhone 5 that are really ergonomic and fit in the users’ ears more easily than the previous ones. The new iPhone 5 has become the world’s thinnest smart phone at 0.3” which is approximately 7.6 millimeters. IPhone 5 also has 4G LTE and its new dock connector is 80% smaller than the previous ones. The device comes with an aluminum backplate and the screen is colorful and bright. Apple has also enhanced the integration with Facebook, Twitter, and other popular social networking sites giving its users a premium feel compared with other phones.

And there are a lot of new features that are still to be explored and I will do that once I have the new iPhone 5 in my hands. So nothing is better than buying an iPhone 5 this Christmas. Yes this phone will be a really great item to be added in your shopping cart. Enjoy the holiday season and click your family photographs and take panoramic shots of your favorite holiday destination, communicate with your friends and family while traveling, and enjoy the fastest technology of Apple phones. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year in advance.

      @mymomeywish, I agree with the iPhone 5s charger issue that it does support the hardware of its earlier versions but this is absolutely not the reason for people to not upgrade to iPhone 5. According to recent news there are more than 2 millon iPhone 5s that have been sold in 24 hours.

      @pamela99, thanks for your visit and comment.

      Interesting hub on the new IPhone. I don't plan on buying a new phone that soon as I am happy with the one I have, but it is nice to know the features of the new version. Interesting hub.

      Personally I'm an android user so will probably not be getting this phone. However from what I've heard, there are actually quite a few reasons NOT to get an iPhone5 - namely that it is a very small improvement on previous iPhones and that the connectors (charging etc...) require new hardware from those of previous iPhones?
