i would say that dual core is so 2 years ago but take a look to ios, its not a cpu-hungry os. for example take iphone 3gs, it has a 600 mhz cpu, but runs smoothly with ios 6, despite that it doesnt have all the capabilities as iphone 4,4s or 5 and etc.
yes but iPhone with dual core cpu is superior on others quad core & octo core smatphones. The iOs platform is the best deal for the dual core cpu. When iPhone put inside an quad core procesor, all others octocore smarphones is history...nothing else. Dual core on iOS is good for the battery, is very fast than all otehrs quad core smarphones with android platform
xyz, 14 Sep 2013hahahahahaha................... In competion quad core and octa core they are still launching ... moreand their dual core is beating all the quad and octa cores available in market , in all benchmarks :)
apple you brought us embarassement am sorry apple is loosing its taste .i waited for so long i just got disappointed am backing off apple welcome htc one
For all those who say that Apple has just dual core, apple creates it's own os and it can optimise it for faster speed... The iPhone 5 is at par with S4
xyz, 14 Sep 2013hahahahahaha................... In competion quad core and octa core they are still launching ... moreTo be honest, the OS doesn't need more than 2 cores to run efficiently. It's a genius piece of engineering that you get so much power out of those specs, yet the tiny screen fitted with a completely locked system makes it boring and inconvenient. iTunes is also one of the most horrible pieces of software I've seen, that really brings it from almost good to disappointing
mike, 14 Sep 2013what a stupid thought "iphone is iphone".it makes me laugh. world has gone far adva... morePeople are not blind and not stupid because once again Samsung as soon coping 64 bit apple chips.....
Still unimpressed. My iPhone 5 is the best 'out there' even when compared to my second line which is the Galaxy S4 which I use my Samsung ATIV tablet.
Unfortuntely, it's the 'best' out there does not make it 'THE BEST'. I consider my Galaxy S4 a very very close second if not tied for the 1st.
If there was a phone which would 'completely sync' with Outlook via USB and I didn't have to rely on iTunes (or some proprietary software or Cloud) to add/remove image/video, it WOULD be the BEST.
LuckyBoy, 14 Sep 2013Yeah because android phones are laggy on dual cores.They need even higher than 4 cores to achi... moreand what about ram. galaxy s3 have 1 gb ram and only 109 - 127 MB free four use (only litle apps instaled) ??
Samsung on the other size is releasing quad-core, octa-core cpu where as Apple are still using dual core. It doesn't make much of a difference because at the end of the day people just use the phones to make calls, use the Internet, play games. They do not use phones for graphic extensive applications, web designing.
Apple's iPhone with dual-core chip, 64bit is suffice along with Samsung's quad-code cpu. Both have pros and cons.
xyz, 14 Sep 2013hahahahahaha................... In competion quad core and octa core they are still launching ... moreYes, beacause they don't need on iOS... But if you still use android, I understand you... and I'm very sorry for you. Long life on your stupid android :))
xyz, 14 Sep 2013hahahahahaha................... In competion quad core and octa core they are still launching ... moreYeah because android phones are laggy on dual cores.They need even higher than 4 cores to achieve smooth transition on application. Unlike iPhone it is smooth even on single core.
wael, 14 Sep 2013I phone must related to the past century what bad specification still dual core CPU the wo... moreApple to get a rocket to catch up with d cheap plasticky phones.. ????...Come on...Apple is a class apart.. N these plastic soap boxes shud b ashamed...to b even compared with it...
shubham yadav, 14 Sep 2013iphone is pretty fast in running ui but you just exaggerated it. my friend has iPhone 4 and i... moreDo you want us to believe that. Your friend's iphone 4 which is 3 years old.is lagging and it was just only two months old? C'mon android fans. Actually. Apple fans are enjoying your useless funny comments. Hahaha
xyz, 14 Sep 2013hahahahahaha................... In competion quad core and octa core they are still launching ... moreocta and quad are really unimportant for idevices because they specifically optimize each and every apps to suite that device....
and also there should be some diff between tablets and phones but now a days when a call pops out guys using some shield near their cheek...
IPhone 5 had manufacturing defects and Apple took one year to rectify, so After Rectification they released IPhone 5S and they discontinued I Phone 5. This is the story. So wait till March 2014, they will release new Model IPhone 6 with 2013 specs with other mobiles released.
[deleted post]You don't like it, dont buy it. Dont teach others what to do because its not your money they spent. 64bits , fandroids envy for that. Whatever how it will use ip5s is most advance in any other phone. 1.7 dual core of ip5s could slap the face of exynos sgs4, see benchmark, what a shame. High pixels camera from other phone but could only shoot 1080p what the point of big sensor. Fingerprint data will store in A7 chip not in icloud or any server, watch the keynote before you comment. Im not a real fanboy but accept it that ip5s is awesome.
[deleted post].. It seems your not very technical yourself.
Benchmarks shows iPhone 5S GPU is only a shy off the s800 chipset (the normal s4 is only s600). And thats with OpenGL 2.0.. iPhone 5S support OpenGL 3.
Given its 64bit, it means it can address above 4gb, BUT it does not mean it NEED 4gb above to work or have any benefit.
The RAM is quad channel at 64bit.. which means it can push 17GB/sec with the 1GB, . compared to 12.8GB/sec on the S4.
And in the end, even if thats not enough, iOS7 is highly optimised, and once u test it in the shop.. you will know which is actually better.
