Silvr, 06 Jun 2014I use iphone 5s and it just has too many limitations. Downloading problem etc etc. its just no... moreiPhone works best with its own eco-system. iPad / iPhone / Mac all together.
This is going to be very true with the coming of iOS8 / OSX Yosemite
To combine with PC / Android will only give you grief. To do things same as Android and PC will also give you anger and grief as you see limits.
However if you open yourself up, and use all Apple products together and do things as told by apple.. you find iPhone is an impressive device.
IMO iPhone must have: Apps (Mac mini headless server + iPhone + Apple TV)
1. Streaming - StreamToMe / Tunein Radio / MusicTube
2. Link with Mac - Remotix (vnc) / Splashtop (custom gaming / vnc with sound) / Diskaid (upload download without itunes) / iTunes (backup) / Image Capture (import photo anywhere , mac only)
3. Folder music playback - Music D/L
Syed, 06 Jun 2014Confused about the color, couldn't decide since a week. Should i buy I Phone 5s Space Grey or ... moreI think gold one looks really nice. But space grey is not bad either. I've got golden one. I enjoy using it.
I use iphone 5s and it just has too many limitations. Downloading problem etc etc. its just not so free like android. I seriously think u cant use an iphone without a laptop coz it uses a PC at every turn. And i use an android phone along with iphone coz android can do preety much anything a pc does.
Apart from this i love the iphone. Touch id is preety neat. Design is great. I love the phone size i think its perfect. My only downside is that the movies play letterboxed due to its weird resolution.
I had prepared a list of downsides of iphone so that people would know what problems are they gonna face after buying it but couldnt post it coz gsmarena doesnt allow TOO BIG opinions.
Confused about the color, couldn't decide since a week. Should i buy I Phone 5s Space Grey or White Silver. suggest me friends

Just go somehere else and play with your band aid palstic phone. Or is this site is the only site that you can access with your band aid phone?

Even if i lose my iPhone, i will not worry. Just restore on a new one.
Interested in knowing? :)
the prb is not the mobile version the prb is you have over charge the battery
jrbcar, 05 Jun 2014that's just it. you can only attach photos and videos with apple email engine, you can't attac... moreYes you cant right , you can't simply copy video files into iPhone and play it . But even a sub USD100 Android phone can do this perfectly fine . There are many thing you could do much more easier in android phone. iOS phone really has too many limitation . I think people buy iPhone is just because iPhone look great but everything else is frustrating to do in iOS . I swear to god I am telling you my true experience . Please don't just listen to others opinion .Please try other option . If you hate Samsung then have a look on LG G2($370) or LG G3($740?). If you like compact and great look then you may consider Sony XPERIA Z1 oompact ($420). If you have limited budget then Motorola Moto G ( $160) .
Truth, 01 Jun 2014Adding email attachments is super easy on an iPhone. Are you sure you own an iPhone? Competiti... morethat's just it. you can only attach photos and videos with apple email engine, you can't attach anything else. yes it can read attachments, but gosh, I still have to use a desktop everytime I have to send an email with an attachment. It won't even let me attach from cloud drives.
araz , 03 Jun 2014dont bullshit evey one with these things the iphone 5s is the best iphone to date with it,s lo... moreHave you ever considered trying other phones before you say that iPhone 5s is the best? I did. I compared everything. Camera wise, iPhone does have superior quality. but so does Nexus 5, Xperia Z1 and Samsung S5. Hardware wise? yes iPhone is smooth, but even Nexus 5, Samsung S4, Xperia Z1 is smooth. How about game play... My Generic android tablet can play better games than the iPhone 5s. it can even emulate PSP, NDS something iPhone can't even do. Oh yeah. i dropped my generic android phone and it's still working perfectly, i dropped my iphone, the screen broke instantaneously.
carlo, 05 Jun 2014still iphone 5s will beat your Galaxy s5 black n blue in real performance (not in specs sheet)No. 5s won't beat it on performance. not even close. Face it. written Specs or not, the power of an android device compared to an apple device is not even close. An xperia Z would beat a 5s with it's power off. iPhone may have the fastest UI but let's face it, it's just UI. everything else, especially iCloud, are crap.
Android Man, 22 May 2014well what makes me laugh is the cpu core speed. has not changed from the iphone 4 to 5s. all s... morestill iphone 5s will beat your Galaxy s5 black n blue in real performance (not in specs sheet)
