The iPhone 5 has been touted as having one of the highest quality cameras for taking photos of any smartphone on the market. So What is HDR on iPhone 5? The iPhone 5 makes use of exclusive HDR (high dynamic range) technology to produce images that are deeper, richer and clearer than any photos we’ve seen from a smartphone before. The HDR technology included with the iPhone 5 allows the camera to snap multiple photos in quick succession and then combine them together to produce an image that is the best possible quality.

Close up Portraits

HDR technology excels when taking pictures of objects at close range. The high dynamic range setting will snap multiple photos in extremely quick succession. It usually takes three photos of the same object and then quickly extracts the best parts from each image and combines them into a new image that is deeper, richer and has more saturated colors than a regular photo. HDR is best for outdoor portraits where the subject and background have distinct and harsh lighting differences

Many people understand the iPhone is one of the most popular smartphones on the face of the planet, but what many people don’t realize is just how popular the phone actually is. According to a recent report the iPhone market share was 25% of all smartphone sales in 2012. This is incredible when you think about how many other competing phones are currently on the market.

Reason for 25%

Many people find it mind-blowing that a single model of phone can own a quarter of the entire smartphone market around the world. To put it another perspective 1 out of every 4 smartphone owners owns an iPhone. This is compared to the millions of Android powered phones produced by different companies, and the other types of smartphones also available such as BlackBerry and Nexus. While the iPhone is popular, many people struggle to answer the question of why it’s so popular. While this question isn’t easy to answer, the recurring answer is because of the wide array of apps and other programs that can be installed onto the iPhone. The Apple App Store has over 775,000 different apps, both free and paid which can be downloaded onto all the latest iPhone models. Another reason is because of the massive advertising campaign that Apple put together to promote the iPhone. Apple spent nearly 1 billion dollars so far advertising and promoting the iPhone using a variety of venues such as television advertising, internet promotion and radio spots.

Ever since the iPhone 5 was released in late 2012 many people have upgraded from previous iterations of the iPhone to the newest model. Deciding when to buy the iPhone 5 can be a difficult decision for most people, especially if they already have a previous version such as the iPhone 4 or 4s that is still in perfect operating condition.

After Contract Expires

Many people have contracts with major cellular providers that run on a monthly or yearly basis. When the contract expires they are often offered incentives to re-up their contract. One of these benefits is the ability to purchase a new phone for a steeply discounted price. While the iPhone 5 retails for almost $650, it can be purchased for as low as $250 if you combine it with the renewal of your cell phone contract. If you have a contract that is about to expire, contact your wireless provider and inquire about discounts you may be entitled to towards the purchase of an iPhone 5.

Sales and Discounts

Oftentimes phone retailers will have discounts and other promotions in an effort to clear out old inventory. While the iPhone 5 is currently the latest iPhone model, there are oftentimes promotions from retailers in an effort to get people to purchase the phone. Some of these promotions come in the form of a certain percentage off discount, while others require you to bundle certain items or start a contract with a cellular provider. Purchasing an iPhone 5 during a retailer promotional period is a great way to get a new iPhone 5 for a discounted price.
