"iPhone 5" Back Cover Hands-On Video


Cydiablog points to a new hands on video with the same "iPhone 5" parts that have been circulating. The new video was posted by part supply company eTradeSupply.


The new video is not especially more revealing, but does show the backplate in a number of different angles. The narrator also compares it directly to the iPhone 4, showing the relative size. Other features noted:

- Smaller dock port
- Bottom headphone jack
- SIM card slot smaller
- iPhone 5 is thinner than iPhone 4S (though no screen on the iPhone 5)

I don't like the idea of not being able to open the phone easily if this turns to be the real iphone :mad: Just like my ipad I have a feel apple is just gonna put a lot of glue on front to keep people from easily getting into their device.


And why do you need to open your iPhone again?

I remember how everyone hated the iPhone 4 design when it first leaked. This could actually be the new iPhone, and it'll start to "grow on people." I can see it now....

FAKE obviously.

No way head phone jack is in bottom.

ANyone who uses an iPhone to listen to music while running or walking will know it can't be on bottom. How are you going to listen to music if the jack is in the bottom and your phone is in your pocket?

What about sports bands? No way are apple going to make the jack on the bottom.

TOTAL FAKE


I'd like to direct your attention to the iPod Touch... and also the first 5 generations of the iPod Nano.

Yes... headphone jack on the bottom.

I just don't like it. I'm not saying that is ugly. It's not. But the 4 looks so much better.

Just saying...

If it is real, I can live with it.

If it is a hoax, it's a damn elaborate hoax.

You simply put the phone head first into your pocket and to compliment that when you take it out of,your pocket it's easier to orientate the device into view. Jeez.
