RadGom, 12 Sep 2013A bigger screen would be something "new"?... The 64bit processor isn't new for you? who cares the cpu is 64bit, the app is not, so nothing really changed
Tom-Helge, 12 Sep 2013Dude, even the Samsung Galaxy S2 phone i had back in the stone age that had a 1600 mAh battery... moreI had a S2 before I upgraded to the iPhone 5 and the battery lasts longer in the iPhone.
Then again, if like me you rooted your S2 and installed a lite ROM, then the battery life is much better.
Though this 5s doesn't have much physical changes, the 5s has half the battery capacity than that of a typical android phone, yet it is almost just as thin (or thinner in most cases) than any modern smartphones. I play games often on the iPhone and battery life typically lasts one day until I go home for a recharge anyway. I think that's pretty remarkable.
Imagine an iPhone with a bigger screen that can house a bigger battery, then they can finally claim they have really made the best iPhone ever.

@acropoliz, 12 Sep 2013u got to be kidding me... s4!!!! cmon....!!!!!wake up....I wouldn't say the Galaxy S4 is "THE BEST" smartphone out now. But it's one of the best ones.
The best smartphones out now are the Samsung Galaxy S4, Samsung Galaxy Note 3 (soon) LG G2, HTC One, ASUS PadFone Infinity, Sony XPERIA Z Ultra, XPERIA Z1 and Nokia Lumia 1020.

@acropoliz, 12 Sep 2013tablet are not meant for pockets.. phones are... i would rather carry a backpack with my table... moreYes i know tablets are not for pockets and that's the reason to rather use a phablet to do the stuffs on it instead rather than having an extra big backpack where you have to store the tablet in.
I'll rather carry my Samsung 9-series (NP900X4C-A01SE) 15-inch latop with me in the backpack instead + the Galaxy Note 3 as a phablet instead so i absolutely can get the real deal done then.
Not only that, but the Galaxy Note 3 as a phablet makes the iPad 4 as a tablet looks like a joke when it comes to productivity, choices and functionality.
VENUGOPAL, 12 Sep 2013S4 world best smart phoneu got to be kidding me... s4!!!! cmon....!!!!!wake up....
Tom-Helge, 12 Sep 2013My hands are not big and they are not small, they are just normal in size. And i had no proble... moretablet are not meant for pockets.. phones are... i would rather carry a backpack with my tablet in, which looks more legible, rather than to have a phablet bulging out from my pocket, looks embarrassing ..
and BTW, why do always samsung fanboys come in for a fight with apple? HTC one and Xperia Z is lot better in looks and build...????
Best phone is the Samsung galaxy I9506 using snapdragon800, it is the latest international version of the S4. It is 5 times BETTER than iphone5s
yeah, 12 Sep 2013so you are comparing a 1GB ram, 4" screen, dual core phone battery to one with quadcore, ... moreDude, even the Samsung Galaxy S2 phone i had back in the stone age that had a 1600 mAh battery last much longer than the iPhone 5 does.
A 9% boost in the battery on the new iPhones isn't going to save the new iPhones from that.
How about that?
@acropoliz, 12 Sep 2013are u a GIANT or WHAT..?? haven't you read the reviews in internet..? i know that you personal... moreMy hands are not big and they are not small, they are just normal in size. And i had no problems what so ever to hold the first Galaxy Note i had before i got the Galaxy S4.
So the Galaxy S4 is just perfect for my hand.
And no, it's better to have a phablet rather than a phone and a tablet with you. If you think a big phone is bad for your pocket, then what will a phone + a tablet be for your pockets then?
IPhones survive only because that mainly sold with contracts therefore the prices are affordoble...from tech aspects Samsung Galaxys, HTCs and other brands are more powerful and customizable...Aplle even doesn't bother to change its flagship appearance, sooo boring....
