Umm, I don't really tend to bias to any side but actually, I'm a Samsung's phone user, more to Android but after 7 months of using, I feel I've chosen the wrong one, so next month I will buy an iphone 5S for sure. It's nothing personal but I just want to share my opinion to the world.

I went to get a black one and it was all chipped on the bottom, where the power plug is. I got a white to notice it had 2 dents ( missing paint) on the back panel. I opened a second box ( luckily, they had) to notice that the second had the same scratches. I took it home to try to replace it later. I did. Went three days later to a different shop to replace it. Got the third one...still scratched...

I put it in and out of my pocket numerous times each day. There is not one scratch on the screen or cover. My European hTC Desire S is without blemish. I see new iPhone 5Ss in T-Mobile retail stores all scratched. Yet, not the same wear on older demo models of Samsung Galaxy or hTC phones.
Iphone 2 user, 10 Nov 2013You must be smoking Dagga iPhone 5s is faster than any phone that anyone can think of. Go and ... moreOK, so the iPhone 5S is the fastest. Then what? Most top reviews explain this as a non-issue—as there are few programs which require such speed or processing power. I.e., all the top phones are faster than they need to be.
81% of the world, and increasing, is now using Android; most top reviewers, who test new phones on a daily basis and can choose any phone they wish, don't choose the iPhone 5S as their personal device.

I think iPhone 5 is better than 5s . The main reason is iOS 7 . It looks like android . 5s is not fast compared to 5. Bought 5s 4 days ago and couldn't tolerate androidism and sold it. Now stuck with 5 . Will wait for iPhone 6
Anybody Out there in the PHL using Smart or Globe prepaid sim with Supersurf or UNLI surf subscription in there Iphone 5s, Which is better telco of the above mention in term of "Speed" in everything like opening Applications using Safari.pls. Share your honest Opinions,tnx
[deleted post]For ios 7.0.3 dual core,1gb ram is enough.It does not need octa core or hexa core,3gb ram like android phones. Android is a buggy and laggy software and its not perfect.Android developers gets less paid compared to ios developers.There are so many android phones which makes android developers difficult to optimize the apps for the particular device.Can u play infinity blade on note 3?
Even though people think android is more flexible For me I think that iOS is more flexible for the more important things. Android just allows you to customize themes and hide icons. Its nothing important. Plus the themes in Android suck anyways. In iOS you can customize how you get notifications, you can customize the privacy of your apps. You can customize the features your device has. You can customize it so that it can adapt for your lifestyle. It can also be customized to be able to be used by the blind, deaf, and other people who are physically challenged. All of these features makes android look like a toy.
Sharaf, 08 Nov 2013Is iphone 5S still has the same problem regarding the scratches and the paint problem like iph... moreHey Buddy, all phone devices are having the same problem of getting scratches if you are not so careful with your device. When I bought my iPhone 5 white and iPhone 5s Gold until now no scratches. Once you buy a new iPhone you should be ready with rubber case housing with you. Use the full cover case (flip cover 'Momax iCore'). Then your problem solved!
Using 5s 32 gb for the last 2 days. I used 5 for almost an year and had no idea of switching to s version. But I wanted the gold color so badly. My impressions after using the 5s are
1) the phone is better than 5
2) the display looks better and colors are crisp though the resolution is the same as in 5. I used the 5 for almost an year so can't go wrong on this.
3) screen response time is better
4) wifi reception is better
5) iOS 7 feels faster.
6) takes better pictures.
And the touch id. You don't realise that you've been using it until somebody asks about the feature. You just place your finger on top of home button to unlock the phone. Amazing.
I don't regret paying extra for the gold color in grey market as it is not available anywhere and I wanted it badly. Many people complain that it looks like silver for most part. That's how the design is !! , and that's y it still looks classy and not cheap gold colored aluminium device.
About scuffs and scratches !!! I used my 5 without any case. Used a case only when I'm travelling out of station. It fell twice or thrice on hard surfaces. But it looked like new even when I sold it except for small dents on the chamfered edges. I saw my cousins phone dropped so many times over bad surfaces. Except for the scratches on edges, the phone looks new. So using my 5s without any case.
