As Apple put it, the iPhone 5 is apparently “the biggest thing happen to iPhone since iPhone” – even when you haven’t heard of the powerful A6 CHIP, 8-megapixel iSight camera with panaroma, and iOS 6, you can tell the difference from its bigger and slimmer display. The display of the 6th generation Apple smartphone iPhone 5 is "slightly taller than the iPhone 4S screen. It has a 1135 X 640 (326 pixels per inch) pixel resolution and a 16:9 screen ratio, which make it better for watching widescreen movies."
Sure, with 326 ppi, everything looks amazing, even the 1080p full HD movies. You might have purchased and download lots of HD 720p and 1080p movies from iTunes store, some of these movies, although you might have purchased a physical DVD or Blu-ray disc sets, for digital copy collection purpose, you pay again for them. The fact is, you don’t really have to purchase them – with a Blu-ray ripper you can easily rip these HD 1080p Blu-rays to iPhone 5 formatted .mp4 video with customized size and quality. 480p DVDs with the original aspect ration 3:2, 1.78:1 and 2.35:1 can also be ripped to 720p video that plays on iPhone 5.
