just got my Iphone 5s a week ago. im very disappointed with its battery life. it wont even last a day, ive used cellular data surfing the net for only 5 minutes and it drained like 10 percent of its battery. playing games was not also a great experience as it heats up to the point that its uncomfortable to hold. one last thing, it had a signal problem that receives sms 5-10 minutes delayed, compared to my other phone in the same area and the same network provider. i am not sure if i just got unlucky eith this unit or its with the iphone 5s itself. so word of advice guys. im not against Apply products, take note i have an ipad 3 and its great, but for this one - iphone 5s, i dont recommend it for you to purchase.
Wanderer, 28 Dec 2013DISAGREE.im from the philippines like you...only to those who knew less about the TECH WORLD w... moreYour opinion by the way, is never needed, nor displeasures me from using my iPhone. If you really want to brag about your Android phones the go to any Android brands forum. Just saying tho! :)
i've had the iphone 5s for over a month now, and coming from iphone 4, i'm really satisfied on the improvements. my iphone 4 became sluggish after the ios7 update, the iphone 5s performed really well on all my apps and games. design is really slick and beautiful. i noticed a couple of things though, when its on heavy use like playing games or on the net continuously, phone heats up, don't know if that's normal. also the battery drains fast on heavy use. but overall, the iphone 5s is superb and i'm very satisfied.
This is why in Government or business you can only use a Blackberry, given Android also leaks like a seive

I wonder what the iPhone 6 would be like in terms of specs? I won't be purchasing one next year as I already purchased my recent smartphone (Samsung Galaxy Note 3) two weeks ago. I'm quite happy with it. If Apple does decide to increase the screen size for their next device, I predict that it would be around 4 1/2" (no more; no less). Many iPhone users value their phones because their small size. I should know, as I used an Alcatel One Touch 908S for two years and their screen are close to 3". I have been helping my mother with her new iPad and I do agree that the UI for the apps are very smooth. Both mobile OSes have their positives and negatives. I cannot comment on the iPhone as I never used one.
can anyone help me? im planning on buying this phone but im afraid of the blue screen of death, battery drain and compass bugs. does anyone experience these bugs?? your reply is highly appreciated.
Teo, 25 Dec 2013Santa brought me new 5s :-) First impressions: almost too light device, switching datas from... moreI hope next year Apple will produce 2 models of iPhone like in this year. Both iPhone 6, but one with larger screen and another with the same screen dimensiones like iPhone 5/5s have. Mobile phones must stay practical specialy for users who regularly use also tablets and computers.
i have a repair store and Samsung is a garbage phone probably cost 175.00 to make a Samsung s4 if you take out the lcd probably cost 50.00 bucks this phone overheat,drain the battery in a couple of hours,if you are in 4g if you drop the phone from 3 feet you are death......no matter what people say 5S is a piece of art.
hamster, 25 Dec 2013is iphone 5S a phone that can use for long term? i mean,maybe can use it for up to 3-5yrs but ... moreYes definitely it will run with the same smoothness since the day you buy it even aftter 5 years even though i would suggest waiting for iphone 6
chester, 29 Dec 2013Iphone 5s is a good phone but it's just overrated,I've used it and there's nothing special abo... moreSo you are that kind of guy who hates somethin and uses it only to bash it afterwards. Hmmm interesting. How many of your kind of people will continue stating they bought iphones just to bash them immediately when since the beginning u onew u were going to deal with IOS. Saying that about copng is the same as me saying Android ftom the start has been a bad copy of IOS. Stop with the hate everybody enjoy their droids or iphones both are great no one is super inferior to the other today. Why do you feel the need to come to Apple related post and bash them just to reassure yourself you have the best device so you can feel good about your choices by insulting others. Enjoy what you have isnt it beautiful that we have choices
