Anandtech iPhone 5s review:
These Samsung and Android fanboys who come here to insult Apple really need to get a life.
Fingerprint scanning is as fast then swipe to unlock, faster then passcode or flip covers auto on off!
Wow i wish the next gen phones have this, maybe embed it in the touch screen, so unlock anyway people touch.
No more annoying smart cover or flimsy cover paper cover and no auto on off crap that cover the camera when taking pictures. Best way to use your phone securely!
My suggestion is that instead of Android fanboys vs Apple fanboys, let the intelligent fans (Apple and Android) band together, and combat stupidity. Report all troll/stupid comments and this will be a better place.
I am an iPhone fan, but hate stupid comments even from other iPhone fans. Let the discussion concentrate on the good and weak points without having to resort to stupidity. Read the commenting rules on GSMArena, they are nicely laid out at the top every time you post a comment.

download ... moreA list of Android strengths vs iOS weaknesses is just as useful as a list of iOS strengths vs Android weaknesses. Simply useless.
Both OSs have their strengths and weaknesses, and people will choose the one that suits them best. There is enough space in the market not just for these 2 OSs, but in fact even WP8 is surviving.
android vs ios
download all paid apps w/o rooting
download all songs (any song free)
swiftkey keyboard (for easy typing)

You do not even need to press down on it.. the ring around the button detect your finger/thumb. And it unlocks your phone immediately! You can have more then one thumbs or finger and all works!
Its like the innovation on iPad - the smart cover. Very fast very secure. Unlike the one on motorola atrix.. that one is a pain and keep phone makers away from fingerprint tech.

Also yes, as an iPhone 5 user, you can wait another year before upgrading, as the iPhone 5 is a great phone. iPhones don't go obsolete as fast as Android phones.
5 days before iphone announcement iphone 5 was fetching about 230GBP at these Mazuma type places in UK,now its creeping back up with one respectable one offer 278 GBP.. I am hanging on to see if get more after iphone launch because 4s model went up 75GBP after about 3-4 weeks after ip5 launch..
I am getting myself a gold plated Nokia 3330 and ending my love affair with smartphones and going back to a decent button phone,you can keep your boring mon slab devices.

my first phone is iphone 4 - it is the best phone for calling and texting (aside from that no more) - very boring - after 1 month shifted to note2. using it for almost 1 and half year now - satisfied!!!!!
as I'm a iphone5 user, I was disappointed about Apple product now. What so special about Thumbprint thingy? wasted of money to buy a similar thing as my phone doesn't lag at all.
iPhone 5s review by Engadget
People like Pork Chop are exactly like their favourite company Samsung. Keep lying and lying, but at the same time protesting how noble and truthful they are.
We already know you like Samsung. We already know you hate Apple. No need to come everyday just to spout your venom.
The worst type of scum.
Samsung makes the MOST profit in the Android market, taking almost all of it. They are the Apple of Android. Yet their build quality is like china clone phone.
You want Android, go Sony or HTC.
Ultimately, what I hate about Apple is that i won't let share anything. If it does,
it takes a very tedious way of getting though the processes which would mean that
you would need to get everything from iTunes. Example: You take pictures of your girlfriend from
your iPhone and she likes her pose, she wants to have it but she has otherwise an Android device.
So what happens? Keep it for yourself pal. The same is true with music and videos.
As a longtime user of Samsung phones I can tell you that Samsung Galaxy serie is the best in the hardware build, but that is all meaningless because Android is full of bugs and there are always lags in apps, games or when installing/uninstalling them.
I have Galaxy S2 (I9100), my two sisters have Galaxy S3(I9300) and my older brother has Galaxy S4(i9500). My S2 was working flawless in first two-three months, then it started to lag in apps and games, now freezes several times per day, no matter i play games or i browse internet or use Facebook and similar apps. The same thing is with Galaxy S3, and Galaxy S4 will be the same after some use, the problem is in Android, it's not like iOS, it's full of bugs, and no matter if you buy S4, G2, Xperia Z or any alse instead of iPhone, no matter if it has 3GB Ram or it has quad-core or octa-core, or it has memory card slot, that is all useless if system is not programmed that every piece of mobile phone work perfect, in two-three, "maybe" five-six months, you will see that your phone will freeze often and all because of stupid Android and his imperfection.
What i'm trying to say is that iPhone will always be better than any Samsung, Lg,Sony, and all because of Operative System. Galaxy S4(i9500) have octa-core processor and because of that everyone want to buy it. But no one paid attention that that processor is not working completly, only 4 cores are working fine, because Samsung didn't know how to program a core to work at full capacity on Android and of course again because of Android bugs and imperfection to connect all hardwares into one perfect unit. No need to tell that Google is forbid a lot of apps in different countires.
I study programming and i know a lot of stuff from my experience with mobile phones, and right now i i'm trying to collect every dollar that i can to buy this phone in 64gb version, after that i won't change it at all, because in any aspect, it will be better than any other in the market, no matter if he has a dual-core processor or less ram, or less screen. You that are talking that you need a bigger screen, buy tablet or just play games on some console or even PC, we that know the difference are satisfied with it at all. And please, don't spam here trying to make imperfection from perfect phone, it's pointless to say anything. And to those who think that is expensive, i can say only one thing, if you want Ferrari, you pay for it, you can't get it if you pay for Audi, Volkswagen or any else. If you can collect that amount of money, then buy perfect phone and iPhone is one, if you can't well you must deal with all of this problems soon or later, buy a lot cheaper one and still try to collect money for iPhone, or simply buy expensive Android phone like S4, G2, Note3 and stuck with it like all others.
No doubt - iPhone rules!!
