Apple has finally unveiled its iPhone 5 handset, nearly two years after rumours of the fabled device began to emerge.
Featuring a bigger screen, faster processor, updated software and LTE support on EE, the iPhone 5 conforms to most of the prominent pre-release rumours, leaving some fans a little disappointed.
However, while the iPhone 5's design didn't come as a massive surprise we've still found plenty to get excited about.
The most noticeable feature differentiating the iPhone 5 from the iPhone 4S is its 4in 1136x640 Retina display with a 16:9 aspect ratio. Previous iPhones had all featured 3.5in displays, reportedly because Apple founder Steve Jobs had put out an edict listing it as the optimum size for a smartphone screen.
While certain hardcore Apple fans have attacked the company's decision to break with tradition, we're really happy to see the company make such a bold change. When Apple unveiled its iPhone 4S in 2011, there were serious concerns that the company was playing it safe, with the device looking all but identical to the iPhone 4.
The increased screen size also comes with several boons, adding a fifth row of icons to the device's user interface. Apple claims this means users will be able to see more in its Calendar and Mail applications.
In terms of performance, Apple iPhone's screens have a proud history, with devices generally setting the bar. Apple claims the same is true for the iPhone 5, boasting that the device's 4in screen is the most advanced available on the market.
We're really excited to test this and compare it to other top-end devices set for release later this year, like the Nokia Lumia 920.
Unveiled earlier in September, the Lumia 920 features its own impressively specced 4.5in Nokia PureMotion HD+ WXGA IPS LCD display, complete with Super Sensitive touch technology and Nokia ClearBlack with high brightness mode and sunlight readability enhancements.
While the screen probably won't match the iPhone 5's on clarity, the Lumia's outdoor technology means it could beat the iPhone when used in more difficult, outdoor conditions.
