The larger screen really comes to life, though, with what is perhaps its coolest feature - a tool called "Panorama" that automatically stitches together a series of pictures into a majestic vista.
Panorama can be turned on simply by going into the iPhone 5's camera mode and then selecting it on an option menu.
Once it's activated, an arrow guides you as you slowly pan the camera around whatever scenery you desire (if you move too fast, Panorama tells you to slow down and also advises you if you are moving the camera too high or low).
Once you are done, you can look at the panoramic shot within seconds and zoom into whichever areas of the picture look most interesting.
Not surprisingly, watching video on the larger screen is also more pleasurable, although I still think the iPad and other tablet computers are a much better way to watch movies and TV shows on the go.
