If you’ve decided it’s time to move onto an Apple device when it’s time for your mobile phone upgrade then you’ll be making a sensible decision. It’s also a great idea if you’ve got one of the older iPhone models such as the 3GS 16GB or an even older 3G 8GB. There are three newer models for you to consider and it can be hard to choose between the three.
Apple now sells three iPhones – the basic iPhone 4, the advanced iPhone 4S and the extremely innovative and high-tech iPhone 5. Once you’ve taken a look at all these options you’ll be bound to decide it’s time to sell iPhone 3GS 16GB or a 3G 8GB and move on to a better model.
The iPhone 4 was launched in 2010 and is the oldest of the models currently available. It runs on a single core processor and has just 512 MB RAM. It has 8GB internal storage and like all iPhones you unfortunately can’t add more storage. It may seem a little slow to more modern smartphones but will be a step up from your previous model and is the most affordable iPhone option available.
It features a sharp, clear 3.5 inch screen and a 5 Megapixel rear camera as well as its front-facing camera which is perfect for FaceTime. It’s the best value iPhone option.
The iPhone 4S could easily be mistaken for the old iPhone 4. It looks identical with the same screen dimensions but inside is much more advanced. This model is powered by a dual-core processor and features a better 8 Megapixel camera. It also has double the storage of the iPhone 4 with 16GB of memory. The main change between the two models however is the introduction of Siri – Apple’s virtual assistant voice-controlled option which allows users to do everything from setting reminders to sending emails through speech.
This is the most expensive and most advanced model on the market with three different versions available in 16GB, 32GB and 64GB. It’s significantly longer and thinner than its predecessors but is still comfortable for one-handed use and for slipping into the pocket. It offers 4 inch Retina display for crystal clear image quality and also has a 1.3 GHz dual-core processor and a 1GB RAM which speed up its performance. The front-facing camera for FaceTime and video calls has also been updated to 1.2 Megapixels.
The iPhone 5 can be extremely expensive which makes it a luxury top-end option and perhaps not the perfect choice for a first time iPhone user in case they don’t get on with it. What’s more, existing users should be aware that Apple has adapted the model to take a different connector size all docks and other accessories will need to be replaced.
Apple is one of the leading companies when it comes to smartphone production and innovation. Their products never fail to amaze and they have plenty of die-hard fans who simply wouldn’t consider any other brand of product. If you think the next model up is for you then choose one of their three great options.
