iPhone 5 Screen Leaked - Shows Bigger Screen for Gaming and more

How much better can the iPhone get in today’s competitive market? The iPhone 4 is a beast, clearly, but arguably the best smart phone and mobile gaming device in the market, but what else can Apple introduce to give the next iPhone the edge in today’s competitive world? How about a bigger screen without changing the size of the phone? A better gaming experience indeed. (iPhone, Mobile, Tech)

The next handheld war:
Nintendo 3DS vs NGP vs iPhone 5

Touchscreen gaming sucks. Buttons FTW.

Buttons and touchscreen together for the win.
blumatt  +   1301d ago
@ Pixel-Enemy
Buttons and touchscreen AND REAR TOUCHPAD (and gyroscope and accelerometer) together for the win. lol The NGP has all that! The NGP will be the most robust, capable portable gaming platform and will appeal to the hardest of hardcore gamers down to the most casual of casual gamers.

I am so glad i just skipped the iphone 4 last year because this is the first real significant upgrade since the iphone has been out. Day 1 for me, my 3gs wont even stay on anymore without my battery case powering it.

Their mock up kinda sucks though. They're only showing it as having a taller screen instead of taller and wider. It'd be a better idea if Apple, if this is real, made it a 5 inch screen to go along with the 5 meaning 5th gen. I'd personally be interested in it.

I have a lot of games for my iPhone, but I have to agree that buttons are much better.

Who told this writer that the iPhone is arguably the best smart phone on the market? The other smart phones are smart enough to actually work no matter how you hold them. The other smart phones are more powerful and have equal features, or in some cases much better features. I think that the iPhone and iPad are both poster children for consumers being sold on an item rather than choosing to buy an item.

gamingdroid  +   1301d ago
It is never about the specs of the hardware or what it is capable of, it is more about the package. User interface is key, and that is what Apple excels at.

As much as I dislike the iPhone (for being the only smartphone platform for getting Mass Effect) and hating Apple, I got to give it to Apple they know user interfaces!

Android is nice, but the user interface still doesn't match up to iPhone and WP7 get's closer, but is not as pretty.

@Active Reload
Look again, man. They do show it wider, but their mockup (and that "leaked" image) are really stupid. LCD and LED screens need a right and left edge. These mockups don't leave room for that.

Apple doesn't have room to make a larger screen without changing the aspect ratio or size of the phone. A different aspect ratio will make development harder, and a larger device is not what iPhone users want. I like my iPhone, even though it's not "cool" to my gaming friends. And I think that people carrying those gigantic Android devices look ridiculous. I don't even have pockets big enough for that.
Bear_Grylls  +   1300d ago

"what it is capable of"

That SHOULD be what matters here. It's a phone that doesn't work well. I understand what you mean about the interface and I agree that the Apple interface is very well done. I own an iPod touch for that reason. However, I would never rely on the iPhone because it isn't capable of working well unless I hold it in Apple's new definition of "the right way" while other phones don't have a problem with any way close to proper.

Dagobert  +   1300d ago
Agreed. I'm not liking this whole new tablet wave and touchscreen shit. I honestly wouldn't mind if they got rid of it from the PSP2 but that's just me.
gamingdroid  +   1300d ago
"capable of" doesn't mean jack squat if it isn't implemented and seeing Android being in the market for so long, I don't forsee major changes there.

With that said, the antenna problem is a mistake once in a blue moon. You don't think other carriers do? My HTC HD7 also has the antennae problem and I bet you other phones do too. iPhone just happens to be the single biggest one.
Soldierone  +   1300d ago
Apple can pretend the Iphone/Itouch is a gaming device all they want. Real gamers know it isn't true.

They are making a HUGE mistake if they take the portability away and try too hard to compete with real handheld gaming devices. Go ahead, trying playing any game with touch screens it sucks. Notice how racing games usually take the gas and break away from you? Notice how its 90 percant complete casual games? There is a reason Sony and Nintendo wont abandon buttons.

Then again Apple cant even make a phone where it has a stable connection whereever you hold it.
Vherostar  +   1300d ago
I agree touchscreen for most gaming does suck. As for this screen probably fake as with the ipad games would need to be redesigned to fit new size screen.

Xperia Play vs iPhone 5 you mean?
Rush  +   1300d ago
Dude it's just a bloody Xperia with a flip-out keypad and a Playstation app that doesn't even allow you to play PSP games.

If it even sells 1/3rd as well as the Samsung galaxy S I will eat my own ass hole.

If it even sells 1/10th the amount of the Iphone 5 I will eat my own head.

And don't give me the Quality=/=Sales because if the past is anything to go by Apple wins there also.

silvacrest  +   1300d ago
everything you said except the PSP stuff could be considered a plus, xperia = android, slide out gaming keyboard = win, playstation suite app = win

you seem to have this idea about what the xperia play is, while your entitled to your opinion, i think your wrong

once the the PS suite takes off that alone will make it sell well, then you have the android fans who will be interested in this, then the people who play games on their touchscreen phones who think it sucks and would rather have hardware keys

you might need to open your mind and see past what you want but what others may want

personally, the xperia play is a day one purchase for me
jeseth  +   1300d ago
Apple = No Exclusives. Fail.

Nintendo = Tons of Exclusives = Win.

PSP2? NGP = Tons of Exclusives = Win.

iPhone5 will be for suckers/people who need to maintain their social status. Apple does not deliver the hardware for the prices they charge and I don't see them changing for gamers.

The HTC Evo 4G is already better than an iPhone5 or 5 for that matter.

deafwing  +   1300d ago
dont' think the device was every meant for hard core gamers to begin with ... they hit a market that don't touch systems that we do ... you know like your boss, and older people who don't mind playing something on their phone while on the train/commuting ... they don't expect them to go trophy/achievement hunting ... the device would be fine for them; for us ... not so much.

And for $600 bucks you get 3 year old tech with 8 GB of space and no wifi. Ripoff.

But if you need to feel cool, the ipad will make you feel cool . . . except you aren't because you need something with an apple logo on it to do so.

this is confirmed fake in many apple forums. there are clone stamps everywhere.

also, why the hell does the title include gaming? Is this flamebait or something? I thought nobody cared about phones being portable gaming devices. Are you phone haters so naive to believe that portable phones are seriously competing against something like the PSP2 or 3DS?

People need to stop considering the iphone in handheld gaming discussions. Its a phone for casual gaming...not a full blown gaming handheld.
Sitdown  +   1301d ago
As somebody who owns a PSP, plans on getting an NGP, and has never owned an iphone...I am completely okay with the iphone being discussed in handheld gaming. Not only is this device handheld, but you yourself admit that you can game on it. Gaming is a general term..and many things can fall under the category.
chadwarden  +   1301d ago
But the 3DS and NGP aren't in the same category as the iphone. The 3DS and NGP are purpose built mainly for games that give the experience of a console game on the go. The Iphone wasn't made for those types of games.
clearelite  +   1301d ago
Then I will have to buy another one in 6 months or people will think i'm a looza. I don't play that game. I'm sure it will be nice(they always are), but I usually invest as much money as I can rather than dishing it out for something I don't need. NGP seems like more of an investment to me.

That's because the iPhone 4 is a piece of shit, people need to wake up...

i have an iPhone 4 and must admit its the first iPhone that i think is worth owning. all the previous versions have not interested me due to the lack of a front facing camera, low MP rated camera and lack high resolution screen and video recording. the iPhone 4 is the first complete smartphone apple have released.

as to if the next iphone will be worth buying ?
going on Apple`s track record i doubt it as in the past there has been such a small update as its not been worth the money to get the latest iphone.

the next iphone will most likely be a marginal update to the iphone 4 with a slightly better camera and a slighlty bigger screen and to me NGP is a better investment than a slighly improved iPhone that does all i have now with the iPhone 4.

sorry Apple but im giving the next iphone a miss !!!
