I don't understand one thing why fanboys go to any lengths in commenting. Like dual core is faster than quad core, other companies copy iPhone, send spies, hahaha man wat bs.
as if other companies have no r&d dept. but a spy dept. As if they have no other work, and u see innovations by the day in those companies not by apple.
If quad cores and 3gb ram are useless y were they invented?
if u say they r just to fool people and dual cores are sufficient, then apple is fooling already by taking premium on a dual core device.
I agree iPhones are very good, but only if their prices are lower like 20-25k INR
People who continually say that there is STILL NO file transfer. Well you haven't consider airdrop? Because for me I was so disappointed with apple before for not having the file transfer capability thru Bluetooth but since I got my MacBook Pro I have used airdrop to transfer files so fast and easy. Even faster than Bluetooth. So to those who stick to Bluetooth for file transfer you are not prohibited to use them but I can see airdrop as the future because it is more secure and at the same time so freakin fast

No, but new buyers or owners of older models might
"You misunderstand the examples given, however there are folk who would change the 5 for the S , either because they can afford it or want a change for change itself."
If they can afford it and they want to, its none of your business. After all, they might sell the older model, keeping the second hand market very active.
"The days of long queues for the iPhone has eroded and is a thing of the past. Strangely many have not even moved up from the 4 or 4S yet."
This is a strange comment indicating that you do not read news, and simply make a statement that you 'feel' and then believe in your own hype. Many keyboard warriors are guilty of this. Back up this statement with some facts. NY queue this year was double the size of the line for iPhone 5 last year.
"If I hurt your feelings as a Apple fanboy sorry, I am an Apple fanboy and still use everything Apple except the iPhone. But strangely the same is happening to the Airbook and Macbook."
Fanboyism is not an intelligent pursuit in my opinion. Being a fan is different though, where one can admire different companies for different things, without having to be a mindless zombie cheerleader. I am a fan of Apple and Sony smartphones when it comes to design. I also really like the idea of the Lumia 1020. However, I only chose iPhone because the overall package including OS suited me better.
You should do the same, if you choose Android, then be happy with your decision, but no need to deride others of their choices. Why not try and do something positive today?
iPhone slayer47, 22 Sep 2013boring boring boring iPhone again. no innovation... looking at specs ppl seriously blind what'... morewhat would you like to have in your smart phone that you cannot find in iPhone 5s?
Was a HUGE android fan for years, htc incredible s, htc one x, samsung s3 4g, samsung s4, htc One, but out of all those i liked my iphone 4 the most.
So i decided to buy iphone 5s and fully invest into the ecosystem and now I havent looked back! it is amazing, i actually use my phone more now than i ever did with "a bigger screen" apps are made better! Everything works great now I got my iMac, apple tv, ipad and iphone 5s, still need to get an macbook air for my partner :D
Jarchelli, 22 Sep 2013just mind it .. most companies goes down after a big fame , who can expect that nokia gonna be... moreI knew 2009 that nokia is dead when i bought my first iPhone even i meant to buy N97. Before that i always bought nokia but everything changed 2009 when i saw how behind nokia is.
Only thing which surprised me is the time how long it took, but i guess the nokia brand was so big that they could sold sh*t year after year.
About apple going down, tomorrow we are hearing record sell numbers for new iPhones, apple is only starting, this end of the year is going to be apple's year and no-one cant stop them.
iPhone 5S . . 64 bit A7 CPU . . . 120 fps camera . . . Touch ID . . . = mind blown! 😵🔫
just mind it .. most companies goes down after a big fame , who can expect that nokia gonna be sold? and it happend and NOW after Apple reach sky for "5" it now goes down with this which have'nt met Apple's criterion
dont think anymore of this damaged apple believe that this is the beginning of Apple's End atleast in smartphones section

boring boring boring iPhone again. no innovation... looking at specs ppl seriously blind what's the difference in last version? even all getting ios7 for other devices. so many restrictions.. I love having phone that can play all videos out of the box...but why jailbreak and miss out warranty or foolishly but iPad just for videos. looking at specs in current market iPhone5 s is still two generations behind. just minor tweak like Fingerprint app and apple selfish selfish earning money.... if ppl paying so much apple should give it some value...wake up ppl
fully disappointment what a shame! low techs , no big screen , same boring design for 4 years. ı am so sorry apple. love you but it isnt enough to use. lumia 1520 can be better alternative than iphone5s to use excellent phone. really love you apple but i have to say ''bye bye biten apple''

Krak, 22 Sep 2013Apart frm d finger sensor bullshit, wat makes the iphone5s different from the iphone 5 or 4s?.... more64 bit A7 chip, dual flash, a bigger battery but with the same weight, larger camera sensor, better gpu, new colours, longer ios support.
[deleted post]Iphone takes the simple thing and makes it palatable and adorable. Look, the new Android 4. has almost if not slightly alike to IOS 7. Iphone is invincible.
Actually I like iPhone 5s and want to buy iPhone, but there are lots of things which are stopping me to buy this phone. I like the 64 bit A7 chip and finger print sensor to unlock the phone. iPhone is always the style quotient to own it, but not at the cost of good features. These are few concerns which are stopping me to go for iPhone.
1. Screen Size - Even though ppi is not the concern, but playing 64 bits games on 4" screen is not good experience.
2. No memory card slot - Even though Android takes more than 50% of the system memory but there is always the freedom of memory cards. We can exchange, share, store not only in one card but in multiple cards.
3. No bluetooth file share to non iPhone devices. Why not give freedom to share to all.
4. Heavy price tag in India.
[deleted post]Thus the fans that got stuck in iPhone 4s 2 years ago.

If the phone came out with 16gb.. it is not enough.
