Everything You Need to Know About the iPhone 5

It's Taller, Lighter, and Thinner

The rumors and reports were spot on. The iPhone 5 is taller—to accommodate the larger display—and thinner than the previous models. The iPhone 5 is 7.6 mm thin (compared to the iPhone 4S’ 9.3 mm, and the Samsung Galaxy S III’s 8.6 mm), making it the, if not one of the, thinnest smartphones on the market. It’s also one of the lightest at 112 grams. For comparison purposes, the iPhone 4S is 140 grams and the Galaxy S III is 133 grams. According to Apple CEO, the new size makes it a perfect fit for your hand. “It should fit there,” said Cook. “That’s how we designed the iPhone 5.”
