AnonD-127796, 16 Sep 2013Please guys wake up another time apple is making fun of you guys a 64bit CPU needs a 3GB RAM ... more3GB RAM is still useless if SPAMsung make it. grow up! we can still manage 1GB RAM in Smartphones. we are not using desktop that needs that power. more than 1GB RAM is just a marketing gimmick by android! use iOS, wp, bb, symbian etc... in the same way! this is just shown how Android lousy are...

Mobilemaster, 16 Sep 2013I suppose the Galaxy S5 will have a 64 Bit CPU.No.. samsung will not stand for that shame.
They will release a Samsung galaxy s4 with 64bit asap.
They did it 4 times on their S4 already Octa->S600-> LTE-A ->S800.. whats the shame for one more?
Max, 16 Sep 2013Apple iPhone 5s is faster than iPhone 5! Remember the iPhone 4 compare to 4s, is a upgrade ser... morefriend, i am not one of those people who want android like hardware on iphone.they have enough hardware for my use.i just wanted better camera(16 mp), sd slot(though not needed),good looking os(ios 6 was good looking than ios 7),themes(real theme not fake launchers), and freedom not restrictions please.due to not providing these i still hate apple and due to so high price and no innovation they are biggest cheaters in the world.but look at 5s preorders, so high.apple will earn high this time too.
A7 - 64bit..
A7x - Ultimate mobile gaming chip..
A8 - 64bit.. with (similar to intel HD5000)
A8x ..add to MacBook Air and start the revolutionary of 1 week usage laptops?
Ohh then the PC/Mac is revived.
Samsung will by then have 20 inch battery powered (250 000 MaH) amold android phone-tablet.

Anonymous, 16 Sep 2013Hrmm alot of people comparing phones with iPhones below, and unsure people. But here are ti... moreYou right because you can get Chinese quad core phones now for just over $100 that use old A7 cores running at a very low clock rate and using old production process so are incredibly slow when combined with cheap ram, flash memory and components, but people see quad core and assume it must be better when every part of the phone has to be good quality to make it run fast, And that's why I always check benchmark results on phones because it tells you how good everything actually is.

And the iPhone 5s cements the iPhones position as the gaming device of choice. The SOC in the iPhone runs the most demanding games very smoothly. You have to admit it and give that to the iPhone.
Most everyone I know buys the iphone because of the gaming. Others just because everyone of their friends has one and its easy to get and use. Also It retains its resale value.
AnonD-56991, 16 Sep 2013Have you ever used an iPhone with a lot of apps, music etc on it? Well I've used a few and kno... moreThis is true. I am an iPhone user also.
I recently tried to used one of my students iPhones and it was almost unusable. It was so slow and laggy. Could barely swipe through the screens.
He had about 10,000 games installed. I'm sure never closed any of them.
Paul, 16 Sep 2013S stands for "Same"Go to the GFXbench website and put the 5s against the 5 and tell me if its not literally twice as fast.
Put it against the flagship androids and lets see how it does.
AnonD-184377, 16 Sep 2013After going thru the specs of 5S i'm feeling my HTC ONE is better than Iphone 5S. May be that the HTC ONE is better for you.
But since the ONE has a snapdragon 600 Krait 300 and Adreno 320, then you're phone already has old tech.
The iPhone 5s, if you look at the benchmarks, it benchmarks right with the Snapdragon 800 Krait 400/Adreno 330.
5s either beats or benchmarks within 2-3 fps from the flagships.
So the 5s, if we're talking about Specs; would beat the HTC ONE no problem at all.
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.
