Overview of the Apple iPhone 5 Black 16GB Refreshed.

The iPhone 5 16GB has come to Three and it's the latest and greatest in smartphone innovations. Does it live up to the hype? Of course it does. Coming with a taller display, speedier processor and 4G LTE tech, the 3 iPhone 5 is the cutting edge smartphone we've all been looking forward to.

The new iPhone's 4" Retina screen gives you more space for your favourite apps, more room to play games with and a bigger screen for watching videos in HD. Photos you take on the new iPhone camera when you're out and will look better than ever on the phone but thanks to Instagram and Facebook integration with Apple's camera app, you can stick them straight online in seconds.

Sitting gently in the palm of your hand, the Three iPhone 5 is lighter and thinner than ever, meaning it's easy on the eye and easy on the pocket. Don't think that it's lacking some serious power though, as it brings in a new processor that's twice as fast and 1GB RAM giving the new iPhone more than enough muscle to play the latest apps, surf the web and play games. Even with all this powerful new tech, the iPhone manages to save your battery at the same time.

iOS 6 is where the real improvements lie with Siri enhancements, Map upgrades and in built Facebook integration into the App Store and other on board apps. It's also going to run faster, save power, streamline your Mail and improve the Music experience. With such proven pedigree, iOS 6 on iPhone 5 is head and shoulders above the competitors when it comes to seamlessly providing you with the ultimate premium smartphone experience.

Don't be left behind with an old smartphone. The future is faster, more powerful and more efficient than ever - an experience you're guaranteed with a Three 16GB iPhone. Oh, and did we also mention you can even use it to make phone calls?
