Just how fast is the iPhone 5
🆗 so I'll put in terms regular people can understand. I just came from an Apple store where I was playing with a demo unit. So I pulled out my iPhone 4 and lined the phones up side by side. I tapped Settings on mine. Then 3 seconds later I tapped Settings on the iPhone 5, the i5 was already loaded and mine loaded 2-3 seconds after. Even with a 3 second head start, that is fast!

The A6 is supposed to be "at least" twice as fast. So...there you go. It's does do everything faster though. I was surprised at the speed of the camera wen though they said that it was 40% faster. The speed is just amazing to me. And the pics are still good. Not just a bunch of quick blurry pics like the Galaxy Nexus.

Biggest difference? Hipstamatic processing. If you use Hipstamatic, you know some lens/film combos can take a LONG time to process. One of my favorite settings would take about 7-8 seconds per shot on the 4S. On the 5? Less than a second. When I saw it nearly instantly process these images, I actually say there for a few seconds staring at the phone in disbelief. In many tasks its 2x as fast. In others it's WAY faster than that. Seriously impressed.
One crazy thing to think about. The iPhone 5 has a higher Geekbench score than a typical 3GHz Pentium 4. Now, I know that's an old chip, but this is a PHONE.
