You can say anything about the iPhone 5, but you can’t hold a stick at its A6 processor. That thing is blazingly fast, and I’m not using epithets just for the sake of your reading pleasure.
When it comes to the A6 chip inside, the iPhone 5 is off the charts!
If the benchmarks don’t convince you, wait 'till you get the chance to pick one up and give it a go. Every single service, whether it’s Apple’s or a third-party app, is so snappy and responsive you’ll start to wonder how on Earth you lived with your old iPhone.
A good example is the performance of the Camera application. You can now use the iPhone 5 to shoot photos for an entire magazine in under a minute.
It takes a fraction of the time it took the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S to snap a photo and then line up another one (not to mention the quality). And video is as smooth as butter. Plus, it doesn’t take a century to save it to the Camera Roll anymore.
