Too bad Apple STILL REFUSES to allow file transfers FROM the iPhone BACK to the PC without iTunes.
WTF is wrong with Apple?!
DRM was removed from music years ago even though the movies are DRM so what's the problem?!

Also, Apple Maps is really Mapquest using TomTom. Take and look and you'll notice how Apple Maps is almost like Mapquest, which is NOT a good thing. At least Mapquest offers the availability of searching for other items like gas stations, hotels, food places, etc... which Apple Maps does NOT >:(

Finally, why the heck did Apple ONLY offer 5Gb of iCloud storage space?? Oh, right! GREED! You want more, then buy the upgrade!
FU Apple!

I just bought iPhone 5S four days ago and I like the phone build quality and the camera quality. My previous phone was Samsung Galaxy Note 2. I consider this changes as epic because this is the first time I've ever had an iPhone. Overall it feels good in terms of handling but I have to get used to the smaller screen which went down for more than an inch gap from my previous phone. The only main reason for me to get a 5S is because of its camera and built quality, that's all. I know the camera is pretty normal but it is one of the best by quality in phone industry and the building material is superb and have the solid feel compared to my plastic feels of the Note 2.

Iphone 5s hands down is simply awesome.
The reason I bought Iphone is about
outstanding battery life and speed.
Iphone is compared to none

BUT :( Now is a different story.

Battery life is terrible.
Honestly after 4 hours,
it is begging for battery recharge!!!!
Seriously!!!?? (Sigh)

Search the internet on Iphone 5s
and its attempt to fix the issue.
Upgrading to IOS 7.1.1 did NOT fix it it...
(Apple you tried but you can do better)

For Iphone fans, should you buy Iphone 5s.
Do NOT upgrade IOS..yet.
Test the battery for 72 hours use.
The upgrade sure was battery killer. (for me)

Otherwise, features and apps are great.

APPLE please give an EFFECTIVE Solution
for us Iphone 5s owners.
Do not let Steve Jobs soul haunt you ;)

If only Apple can increase its screen size to 5+ inch & give a gud 2+ quad core processor, things will be really favour. As its products are really well-engibeered & well optimised.

Apple is good pruduct. I have galaxy note, sony z1, blackberry q5, and my opinion is depend on the choice and demand as each person has different taste and need. Every product has their style, which some people like, another don't like. Galaxy offer wide of choice but lack of update, blackberry stable of internet connection and office product, but lack of application store, iphone 5s offer good finishing but very pricely, the best offer come with sony as they offer 2 size phone z1 and z1 compact which updates until new 4.4 android and good camera. The choice return to the consumer.
