Under the screen it has the same old iPhone home button. On the left side it has the volume keys and the ring/silent button. On the right side is has the nano-SIM card slot. At the top the phone has only the power button. At the bottom we find the mouthpiece and the loud speaker at their place but we also see something new; the 3.5mm jack is here and the charger plus has changed. It look like the microUSB charger plus but it is named Lighting and you can plug the cable either way.
The screen technology has remained the same but it has a bit bigger dimensions. Now the display has 4 inches and a resolution of 640 x 1136 pixels. The pixel density is a bit lower because of the bigger screen, 326ppi but it’s still very high. The display supports multitouch, it’s protected by an oleophobic coating and it’s protected by Gorilla Glass. As you know from its predecessor the screen colors, viewing angles and sun light legibility are very good.
At connectivity it has DC-HSDPA (dual cell) up to 42 Mbps. The normal HSDPA speed can reach 21 Mbps and the HSUPA can reach up to 5.76 Mbps. The download speed over 4G LTE network can go up to 100 Mbps. It has Wi-Fi dual-band with a/b/g/n standards, Wi-Fi Hotspot, Bluetooth v4.0 with A2DP and a microUSB v2.0 slot.
