Incredible article on the A7 chip. A bit long, but apparently Apple built this completely secretly and Samsung were caught utterly surprised by the announcement, resulting in that hasty "we'll build 64bit too!" when Android is 2015 nearest to 64bit.
Also explains how terrible Exynos 5 Octa is cost wise and why Samsung decided to switch chips mid way in other countries for its SGS4.

iphone 5s "S" means "SCANNER"
iphone 4s "S" means "SIRI"
iphone 3gs "S" means "SPEED"
Apple iPhone 5s is faster than iPhone 5! Remember the iPhone 4 compare to 4s, is a upgrade series you guys, i don't get it why many people loke a quad core devices even it is lagging OMG! And they like the higher rams! Look watch on youtube iphone5vsgalaxy s4, iphone5vshtc one.. Even iphone5 can beat the highers core, how about the 5s?, you don't need to be based at cores based it at chipset which is A7 or A6 Chip faster than your quad core lagging.. I got iphone4 since 2011 still faster till now.. My cousin have a xperia arc model 2011, & galaxy s2 till now it was lagging then how about iphone 5s with A7 Chip & 64Bit processor, guys open your mind, you hate Apple because of the lower specs?! Come on your so weak! Even apple is lower specs it was so super fast than your androids lagging cellphone wanna prove it?, Test it every apps & wifi connection using iphone 5 & this coming iphone5s make sure your wifi connection is 15Mbps & up.. Let see who's better. My friend s3 now was lagging but still my iphone5 is still faster even it is 64Gb, only 7Gb free of my space still fast than your androids lagging phone. Open your mind baby!
Asparagus, 16 Sep 2013Does anyone know if this has 2GB of RAM or 1GB like the iPhone 5? With Apple's optimizing, the hope is that this kind of questions will become irrelevant, as the phone simply performs like a maniac without lag, deity whatever you throw at it.
That being said, it is likely to be 2GB, until a tear down completely confirms it.
Hrmm alot of people comparing phones with iPhones below, and unsure people.
But here are tips on how to straighten your thoughts.
1. 100% of the time you are using applications, so if the platforms provide you with the latest apps you desire, it most likely should be your choice.
2. Never fall for generic techy specs marking. "Quad core" , "Tons of Rams" or "GHz". Lower end china companies like to exploit people on those points, but infact they are using low end cpu or previous generation. If your not techy, always test out the product first. Else always determine what is the "core" - like krait 400? or cortex-A15? what is the "ram" - mhz? or LPDDR?. All these make alot of difference.
3. Before you fall trick to features, always stand back and ask yourself if it is truely worth it? Or the old way on doing stuff is more cool. One of which is air gesture, it makes you look stupid waving your arms and sometimes did not work.
But if you do not wish to make a choice, and feel unsure in the end, pick iPhone.. you never go wrong, as the thought process is already done for you. And Apple is usually able to balance form and features perfectly.. but you have to pay the price for it.. as it is not cheap.
After going thru the specs of 5S i'm feeling my HTC ONE is better than Iphone 5S.
OMG, last years iPhone. I so want to buy it again. Apple, take my money, please. I want technology from 3 years ago.

Pork Chop, 16 Sep 2013I see you back again trying to make out Apple is perfect and and every other phone is bad.Few?!
I am a Samsung user, I wont lie, I am a fan boy as well. I am currently using the Note 2 and I have experienced very little issues with the phone since I got it two months ago. The specs are excellent, I love the UI and Android OS, but one thing is lacking. That is the premium feel. I work in the telecommunications industry and one of my colleagues has an iPhone 5. Although, I do not like the UI and programming very much. I love the feel of the phone in my hands, and in that regard. Apple has Samsung beat in terms of design and quality.

[deleted post]Have you ever used an iPhone with a lot of apps, music etc on it? Well I've used a few and know of many that have and the iPhone lags like a b!tch because of something called flash memory lag where if you have a lot of separate files on flash memory it becomes incredibly slow at retrieving the files.
Because iPhone installs IOS and all your files on the same card it has to work harder, but nearly every other phone has removable memory so you can reduce that problem because all the files split between 2 chips.
