A phone should be handy...It has to be used with one hand....Iphone has the same philosophy...Im delighted that iphone's screen size has not increased....finger print scanning is awesome...The theme of iphone is to give the portability and proper security for the data that we carry on phone...not the extra features like air gestures and all which ppl rarely use, in my opinion they are just show off.....

do you people really think iphone is for "chosen Ones"??? :D
do you really believe in it? how many chosen ones are there?
when moto x came out with realllllly better tech specs than this one, people called it "awww, it is outdated! 1.7 processor? -pffff, too bad... and now the apple tries to sell us past years tech like is is tech of 2014!!! theyre just sucking money out of you for old phone, which they called NEW made from old parts. Calling their ios the best and newest. look how many new features it took from android and even WP!
P.S. and who the hell can tell me why there are words on back "Designed by Apple in California, made in china'????
i do not care where it is designed dammit, or even it was someones dream!
But what if there in california chinese guy took part in its designing?

Actually Apple does not need to spend a year to include those minor improvements in the iPhone 5S.
I can conclude Apple team is very inefficient for coming out with a better smartphone after Steve Jobs.

I've got the 4s and won't be buying either phone. Pricing for the 5s and 5c are too close and makes no sense in my opinion. I thought the 5c would be going for around £250 in the UK, which would have been reasonable for many who cannot afford them. I await the "6" and I hope the screen size is comparable to the Galaxy, otherwise I won't consider it.

For end users they don't even care if 32 bit or 64 bits. what they want is a bigger screen 5" at least, 13 MP, long battery life, has memory card slot and reasonable price.

Finger print detection is not necessary at all!

The upside of a 64bit arhitecture is that it can use a lot more phisycal memory and it does math calculations with very high numbers natively, so faster than a 32bit processor.

So considering iPhone 5S only has 1Gb of RAM you will soon see that the bump in processing speed from 1.4GHz dual core to 1.7GHz dual core, will actualy translate in a slower phone than iPhone 5.

Apple is so hungry for money. So hungry that they loose $20 billion in their stock before even start making a dime with their newest lineup. Just hilarious! Lol
