This photo was allegedly taken with the iPhone 5. The photo looks good, but do we believe this is from the iPhone 5?

Certainly a good demonstration by PocketNow how a photo can be totally dissected.

Exif data shows iPhone 4, taken 7/22/2011 location does center non the Apple headquarters. Too bad this data is kind of easy to tweak / fake.
but I'll go out a limb and say it's a real iPhone 5 photo.

Didn't they say the dimensions were from an 8mgp camera although it says iPhone4

I just read the entire story. Yes they did mention that in the article. I went to find the actual photo so I could pull exit from it. Lens size is different also I believe.

I would like to see better lens and better picture quality in low light conditions, compared to more megapixels. It would be great if there is both though. :)

If they made the Apple logo the lens it would do much better in low light. Don't know how much better they can actually get it from such a tiny lens.

f/2.8 to f/2.4 = faster lens = better low light performance. This is good news.

The iPhone 4 allows more light in but creates more noise which sucks. I'm hoping they fix this on the iPhone 5.

It would look neat, but it's impractical. Try taking a picture with your iPhone, with your fingers clear of the Apple logo, you can't hold it as steady as with your finger over the logo.

Maybe they could move the placement
