Apple iPhone 5s review: Step by step - read the full textIt’s that time of year again and Apple’s in the usual record-breaking mood at the box-office. This is an S year in the Cupertino calendar but different enough – it may be that two phones instead of one account for almost...

 

Sort by:

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...
thoroughly,
(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 ;)

Thanks

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.

I am using 5S for more than a month and would not agree that the Touch ID is not used much, as mentioned in the Disadvantages of this phone. Its the best security ever, instead of typing security code or a pattern to unlock the phone. Just press the home button, and only you can do that too... It has never failed, even in any angle that you set your finger on... TOUCH ID is the best security till date for a phone... Simple and secure

Apple need to do something . Not just Apple, every company including Samsung and HTC needs to do something. Sony has released Z1 Compact. Believe me, it is a dream phone for everyone. Wayyyyyy better than iPhone 5s if u ask me. My father owns a 5s and he says he does not need any other phone after 5s , but I am going to buy Z1 Compact. Btw, I had used HTC One Mini and currently using

Come one. Guess what. Android just works too. This is reality!!! Lol. That pretend fanboy crap holds no ground here. Guess what else. Iphone lags at times too. It definitely has crashes too. Especially if you on a 4, 4S, even 5 and have IOS7.

> In reply to Edgewood @ 2014-01-30 16:46 from M7nd - click to readOne world : reliability . They just work and Apple tests the shit out off their products to make sure they are perfect in their own sense. IPhones excel at the key tasks they are given and that it's the huge selling point. Also high resell value,customer service ,great app store make their pleace. Anybody saying that Apple is shit has obviously bit even touched an Apple product. They are probably prior with insecurities complex who need to insult others to gain confidence about their product choices and life. Yes Apple products cost you an arm and a leg but you will never be let down by them and what their purpose is. And this is coming from an avid android user . I hate the useless flame wars with the ingnorance way of thinking : your Apple product is shit because you are an idiot. Out even the contrary. I use Android more because it has matured so much wher lag is minor and doesn't really affect performance and you can do more things than you can on an IOS device. But that means you have to make everything yourself manually on the phone while IOS stands to the concept the device should work for you not you for the device. Everybody has its own preferences. I happen to use and love a lot of Google services which are also on IOS BUT Swype keyboard, widgets and superior customization compared to IOS are huge selling points to me.
