As a both android and apple user (iPad 4,4s and Galaxy S4) i'm rather impress by the spec. 1.7 ghz is a monster if you put it into an apple device. Only people who does not own an apple device will say that 5s' spec is behind android phones'. Iphone only needs 1.2ghz to perform as fast as Galaxy s4's 1.9ghz.
My only issue about apple devices are locking of OTG features that's why I can't leave android.

Apple calls demand for the new iPhones incredible as stores struggle to keep up
Pork Chop, 20 Sep 2013Awww.... Me sad now because you trying to insult my intelligence to try to shame me into leaving.Yes. You should be insulted. Because if you are really intelligent. You won't comment useless things here at APPLE PAGE. Esp. As an android fan. You are just making it sounds like its legit. But actually it's not. You should get back to your own page. Because you are no good here.

Say what you want Samsung really wishes it had the following Apple has. I guess it's true, one mocks what one doesn't understand.
CNet: Samsung sends spies to uncover Apple's iPhone line phenomenon.
One of the key advantages of iOS over Android. iOS 7 adoption rate at 32% after 48 hours

2. You think any of the Porsche owners suddenly wishes he was the Evo owner instead?
3. You wish to be like that Evo owner? Lol
Only thing different in this example is of course, the iPhone is faster, probably the more well rounded smartphone and more practical day to day YET has the better image lol. Best of all worlds.

[deleted post]This phone is not very disappointing, It still has an 8 megapixel camera has a bigger censor so its still in essence a much better camera like what HTC has done with 4 micro pixel I think, The dual core processors benchmark has out done most android phones including like the HTC One, LG g2 and the GS 4. The only reason I can actually to mock the phone with good reason is the screen size. The Full HD vs the retina display is nothing since your eyes cannot register there pixel density.

If you keep on reading down it goes on about quadcore useless,it says,,
In such a thermally constrained environment, going quad-core only makes sense if you can properly power gate/turbo up when some cores are idle. I have yet to see any mobile SoC vendor (with the exception of Intel with Bay Trail) do this properly, so until we hit that point the optimal target is likely two cores.

I go to airshows,model railway events and other events where I take a lot of video and photos..If I got 16gb after my apps are on and cherry picked plus some music and my photos I carry with me and then cutting back again I only have 1.5gb spare..This is not enjoying my phone its hindering...That 1.5gb is only 10 mins video and some photos..I would not be enjoying 16gb..
At moment have S2 with 64gb card in and just under 8 gb on phone.Its like chalk and cheese the 64GB card cost just under 40GBP Apple want 160GBP extra..
That's why I got infuriated its apples over inflated prices stifling folk.Whats more annoying was in 2007 my N95 had 8gb and this is now 2013 16gb is a joke..If I got 16gb I would have to take my S2 which is 2 box solution,,by 2013 the last thing I would have thought of is having to carry 2 devices...
I may sell iphone 5 and get 64 gig 4s but as of now holding off..If iphone 5s 64gig was 579GBP I could of had champaign/gold in next 10 days sim free off Apple.

I hate/love iphone.
Duel, 20 Sep 2013Brynn, was this what u been waiting for
Official from Apple
“Demand for the new iPhones ... moreDepends how much stock they had to sell initially.
Seen gold 5s and pink & blue 5c ..They look very nice and too a point the 5c looks more fun,pink looks more like luminous orange in flesh..Have not held 5s just saw them in window but touched 5c its very polished ceramic feel.
Don't tempt me @Duel to buy its frustrating not to buy a 5s but will have to wait till second hand..I can afford 5s 64gb but no way can I condone buying one..I think I will have to go half way and delete 50% of music and wait for 32GB 5s in champaigne/gold second hand.
