When the iPhone 5 was announced the reaction from many people was "boring." They thought it looked too much like the iPhone 4S.

Now that we have our own iPhone 5, we think those people are a little misguided. The iPhone 5 is a beautiful phone. It's thinner, lighter, and above all faster.

Apple was able to cut 1.7 millimeters off of the depth of the iPhone 5 and it is a noticeable difference. It weighs 112 grams, which is 28 grams less than the 4S. Twenty-eight grams and 1.7 millimeters might not sound like much, but they add up to make a pretty significant difference.
