    Is the iPhone 5 just an iPhone 4S made thinner and taller, I've got my new iPhone 5 still have my 4s but I've watched some side by side comparisons and the 4s is as fast if not faster than the 5 surely Apple have made the 5 faster at everything or they should have,please tell me Apple..is the a6 processor better, is it quad core?

    The A6 is not a quad core but it appears to be faster and smoother to me...

    It is quite a bit faster... it runs at 1.06GHz versus 800MHz for the 4S
    Also features 1MB RAM instead of 512MB which makes things go much faster

    Here are more numbers that show the 5 is much faster than a 4S:

    My 4S is faster than my 5 but that's because I have FakeClockUp installed ;)

    FakeClockUp only accelerates your GUI, it isn't actually faster. :)

    My iPhone 5 is MUCH more faster than 4S. I've been doing speed test all weekend with it against my iPad, a 4S, and Wifi.
