Apple did not want anything that would slow the phone and make it crash that why no flash and everything is sanctioned through iTunes...What you do get tho is a simple experience where things just work that's why it sells so many..

I am UK and every person on tv or in the soaps if you follow them they all have iphone..They have iphone because they can operate it that's why I don't see Apple products as computers for begginers..Android and Windows are more complex but you can do what you like with them..

Remember it is a lot of hype all this clapping as you go into store on launch day is embarrassing.If you listen to keynote speeches everything is referred to as its gorgeous or its beautiful..They are nice phones but aluminium is no more expensive than polycarbonate and apples back up service centres are second to none.

The best smartphone on the planet is the one that suites your needs and budget,,i swap between Android and iPhone (iphone 4s ATM) for best of both worlds.

The 5s has a MUCH faster 64 bit chip, dual led flash, and the much nicer camera. And the fingerprint scanner, too, as you mentioned. Also keep in mind that the 5c isn't availalble in 64gb configurations.

To all iFans here please read this to the end

Apple is one of the greatest companies in tech industry, they redefined music playback through their iPod, which is the best music player I have ever used. They re-made the tablet with the iPad even though if they didn't invent the tablet but they returned it back to life and that's something to be credited for.

On the other hand, Samsung is also one of the greatest companies in tech industry they have a higher variety of products compared to Apple, but let's talk about phones here, Samsung invented the Phablet with the Galaxy Note which was initially an experiment. They made the Galaxy S2, a phone that changed alot in smartphone industry and made phones the way we see it today.

But let's talk about the most heated subject among those companies ( iPhone or Galaxy )

People hate about Apple in general is that they make restrictions to all of its products in almost everything ( file transfer, internet download, bluetooth, etc ) things that is normal in phones cheaper than the iPod nano. Another thing is the high price range, sure its products have high quality and are made to last but that doesn't apply to all, the one that seem to always fail in my eyes is the iPhone, while other Apple products seem to have more acceptance from people.

Here's where the iFans come to irritate normal people,
First, iPhone is not the best phone ever created, it is a good phone but not the best, but somehow it always manage to get itself among the best phone league due to its fan base. We have to admit that if Apple was bad at advertising, the iPhone would have long been forgotten.

Second, iPhone has a ridiculously high price for its specs and it is not the price of innovation, I won't go far, see the iPod touch, it is also made by Apple, and what's the difference between these two beside Camera ( 8MP vs 5MP ) and the ability of the iPhone to make phone calls only ?!!!!!! Only that make the iPhone more than double the iPod touch price. So I am not making comparison between Apple and non Apple, both are Apple-made products, please reply to me on this part ( iFans ), by the way, we ( normal people ) are not jealous of the iPhone owner because if I can buy a Note 3 or S4 or Z1 or Lumia 1020, then I can buy an iPhone. It is only about what I will get from the same price. Also why should I pay an extra 100$ for an extra 16GB on my iPhone when I can buy a 16GB SD card for 10$. Oh I remember, the iPhone doesn't have a memory card slot so Apple can have another way to rip off people's money.

Third, Apple managed to keep a well control of the iPhone until Steve Jobs died, by making it have its own decisions and not follow the hype of other companies and that was something the fans used to brag about until suddenly and less than three years after Jobs died, Apple has already changed the screen size to 4" ( and there are claims they will make a 4.7" iPhone and a Phablet [ seems like copying now ] ) , they made two iPhones and they long said there is only one iPhone and last as we see the iPhone 5s comes with dual LED flash and finger print sensor [ seems Apple is copying Samsung in stuffing unwanted features ], And I am not talking about this as if it is bad, for me this is good. The iPhone features are going to match its price range soon, I am talking about this from the fans' perspective. All the things you have been bragging about is changing, and you have only two options now:
1- To stop bragging about the iPhone. By the way, you are not the one who designed it to be that much proud of it.
2- To cancel your previous opinions and continue to praise the iPhone and be like a drone controlled by whatever Apple tells you.

That's much to be said about Apple, now I am mentioning Samsung also as there are some things that keep me wondering why on earth do they do this. But the case here is that the Samsung Fans have nothing to do with these things, as most would agree with me on some of them.

Sure, Samsung is more innovative than Apple in many things ( 4k video, Air Gestures, S pen stylus, screen ppi much higher than retina, etc )

But Samsung does many things that really get on my nerves and here are some:
First, the design and build material, the major flaws of Samsung. How can I pay more than 600$ in a Phone made entirely of plastic and a cheap type of plastic ???? Look at Nokia for example, they make their phones out of plastic but a good solid high-quality one that feels premium, it is even found in their cheap phones as the Asha 501. Even the metallic elements on the sides of the Note 3 and S4 are made of plastic. In fact, before Samsung touch phones became famous in my country, People used to think that they are either much cheaper than their actual price or think that it is a cheap chinese phone that has Samsung logo on it. Also, hyper-glaze is not cool nor it is good-looking, don't make that again and stick to the faux-leather in your new upcoming devices.
Another thing is the design, what is the use of these three hardware buttons on the bottom when you can remove them make your screen larger by 0.5" and make onscreen buttons. Also the battery back cover seems to increase the total thickness by more than 2 mm, as the phone is much slimmer when you remove it.

Second, the software. Touchwiz is the most annoying modification on the Android, it is battery consuming, it takes alot from the RAM memory and slows down your actual processing power. Stock Android is much better and it is a more power-saving version of android.

Third, every new Galaxy S or Note coming every year seem to cancel the opportunities of the former generation and make it look too old to handle a competition, it makes you feel you need to change your phone at most every two years, but with iPhone if I buy one I don't need to change it unless after 3 or 4 years as nothing major changes in these 4 years.

But overall and at the end of the day, Samsung flagships are Galaxies away from Apple's iPhone in almost every perspective and if I am going to buy a phone, I will go for Samsung as I can live with the design flaws and software issues, but I can't live without bluetooth, removable battery, SD card, internet download, and the list go on for iPhone missing features.

Maybe by the end of this year and the next one, Apple will own my heart if it had much more upgrades and new features added to the iPhone at its original price range.

if you want a small phone go for the iPhone but I suggest the 5c as it pretty much the same as 5s , the only major difference is the finger print sensor
