Apple iPhone 5s - user opinions and reviews


Sort by:

The Sensors are all slightly off, I cant play games that use the gyroscope or accelerometer on this device, already replaced it once with Applecare. Damn, the Note 3 or iPhone 5/4/4s doesn't have this issue =/

Ive been using iPhone since 2006 its the best quality phone u can have and i buy the newer version yearly and am extremely happy about spending 1000$ on each worth every single penny! Even resale value is amazing got a Samsung S3 once and gave it out as a gift hated it!

dpreview made big camera review for iPhone 5S

"The Final Word

The iPhone 5s, running Apple’s fresh iOS 7, is an excellent phone with a very good camera. Image quality under most conditions is among the top of the class of “conventional” smartphone camera units: you have to look to the Nokia Lumia 1020 to find something that’s hands-down better across the board

The camera app is supremely easy to use, and the 5s’ powerful processing makes for class-leading burst speed and excellent responsiveness."

So only 1020 have better camera than iPhone 5S, not bad from Sony and Apple!

Someone has to question the retina capability when it wont even go as far as 1280x720Pixels to show HD content, looks nice on the apps but everything is optimised for iOS and there latest flagship phone model iPhone 5s represents to me, MINIMAL CHANGE. Still the same resolution and same dual core graphics but to make it all worthwhile a much bigger pricetag hmm.

The answer is very simple because they (Apple) dont want to lose against the other phones during any test"

what a joke, reason is that tens of millions still want smaller phone and apple is only one who offers great small phone.

The reason definately isnt any tests (laugh)

maybe you can ask from yourself why iPad with that huge resolution beats all the android tablets?

If Apple would use bigger screen they ofcourse put better parts for device if it needs one.

If you always say s4 is better than 5s then go for s4 nobody is forcing you to buy this phone. Its always your choice. So stop this nonsense comparison whether samsung is better than apple or apple is better than samsung! Just pick what you like and stop saying negative things about each other products its your money so spend it on what u think is better and stop saying this and that.. And stop saying buy this and that its their money they can buy whatever they want

A good advice to the 5s fan be honest & ask yourself why I cant get my 5s with a 1080p + a bigger screen?

The answer is very simple because they (Apple) dont want to lose against the other phones during any test

Android & W8 phones 1080x1920 = 2,073,600 pixels in 5 inches or more
iPhone 640x1136 = 727,040 pixels in 4 inches

35% of the 1080

So you dont need a huge source of RAM, Quad core, battery ... etc to give the same or better performance

A good example is: Did you try to play a Full HD video with your 1 or 2gb ram Windows or Mac?

For the 1080 phones they will work 24 hrs in Full HD
The home screen is 1080, the apps in 1080, wallpaper in 1080.. etc
So they need a huge source+battery

The price that came from your pocket for the 5s is almost double the price of any other flagship (Samsung, HTC, LG, Sony) & if you will ask them (Samsung, HTC, LG, Sony) to give you a phone with same specifications as the 5s they will ask for the half.

So you will pay 4 times the (real) price of the 5s

Be smart & open your eyes

iPhone has own identity which is the iOS.
What if that iOS really looks and working like as an Android would think they have an own identity?
I was so much disappointed about their new updates.
This is really OMG ...
