iPhone 5 parody clip: “a taller change than expected”

By , Sep 22, 2012

 

One of the most noticeable and talked about features of the iPhone 5 is its new display. For the first time, Apple has made the handset’s screen larger, bumping it up to right around 4-inches.

But in order to maintain usability, Apple only increased the height of the display, not the width. And this has spawned some criticism from the tech world, as well as this hilarious parody…

Jokes aside, after playing with the iPhone 5 for several hours, I can say that the new display does take some getting used to. I’ve had to alter my grip a bit to reach tap targets at the top of the screen.

That being said, I can still use the device one-handed, which judging by its new “Thumb” TV spot, is what Apple was going for. It’s definitely a lot more usable in a pinch than a larger phone.

Anyway, what did you think of the parody clip?

    I think that they should of made the screen wider too. By only increasing the hight of the phone it makes you feel like apple is holding back on the natural progression of smart phones like iPhone

      Have you actually used one yet though? It’s really a great experience that I was skeptical about but this screen size is actually incredibly confortable.

    the future of apple is going darker day by day… no body loves iphone 5 because it has the same hardware and design similar to iphone 4s..

    lastly the long iphone putting in pocket is awasome

      your kidding right? a cpu that is faster than any other phone currently on the market. camera has been improved, gpu improved, new screen tech, new screen size. I cannot use a samsung G3 single handed. I commute on a train standing up, impossible to use some of the larger androids single handed. I thought apple was crazy too, i moved from iphone to the original sprint evo, 4 months later i was back on iphone. apple has a point about being able to comfortable hit any point on the screen single handed. I know more people who get tired of bugs and lag on android and wind up switching to iphone. I also know many who have tried android and then returned to iOS. The phone will be apples best selling iPhone, guarantee it. I traded in my iPad for a Nexus 7 and it is ok, but I will be switching back the minute a smaller iPad comes out as well. and Oh, the video was funny as hell. Even a apple fan can laugh at himself lol…
