it is still innovative......though not as i expected. It packs necessary specs unlike some phones...... ;-) u know the galaxies! Fingerprint and 64 bit. The future is already here so pls Apple haters stop complaining.. U can continue buying the plastic toy droids
51, 11 Sep 2013apple iphone 5s v/s samsung galaxy s4 is like rey mysterio v/s the great khali.....then you mean note 3 is giant gonzales.
[deleted post]small world lol.. if u want big screen then grab an iPad mini if u need more then iPad... it's iPhone (phone) okey..?? 4 inch display is best for a phone... go and watch movies in theater.. Lol.. not in a Smartphone :D
24 hrs on and i cant believe they are still peddling us the same battery..That battery is less than the every bottom-midrange phone and will cost them nothing to put in.
Anonymous, 11 Sep 2013hahaha the 5s better than the S4??? The 5s isn't even better than the S3??? Iphones do lag as ... moreYou right, I owned an iPhone 4 and know a lot of people who own them and lag is a big problem if you have a lot installed because it's called "Flash memory lag" where if you have a lot of separate files on any kind of flash memory it seriously starts to slow down because it just takes longer to access files on it, And it has a similar effect to when you have a fragmented hard drive making everything run slower.
Soran, 11 Sep 2013it seems the specs will remain the same forever :)not in iphone 6
Jyu Viole Grace, 11 Sep 2013a GOOD BATTERY?? with a 1440mAH?? and 10hs of talk time?? Sony Z is better than that, I know a... moreyou still loking numbers .yes it is 8 but make THE BEST PHOTOS AND VIDEOS and if you have used iphone you wil know this
Apple7, 11 Sep 2013Yes go buy lower cost phone that's why is lower cost lower cost you will get lower quality ... moreHa ha,note III dead,you are kidding me,that beast is just unleashed with 4.3 jelly bean which make you're mind blows,go ahead buy that apple thing but trust me apple is damned like hammer with it's H series
I like 5s. If I was apple user. Which is okey, we all have a freedom of choice. Make a test:
1. Take a microsim with data plan included
2. Take S4 I9505/I9500
3. Use it one week heavily
Come back and say "I would buy the 5S instead"
It's different category, different animal. Take it.
And if you want power, buy the S4 E330s which has snapdragon 800 (insane power) + LTE-A which is 150mbps. Plus here is not a thing missing from the other i9505 many features.
And yes, there are 10 good reasons why S4 and others are not aluminium. And Im glad they are not.
Another useless revision to a less than useless device, why people still buy this sub par phone is beyond me...
It's all starts with Face Unlock ,collecting information and now ,fingerprint scanner ,and it's all going to data base :),and how secure is A7 chip ,if someone steel iPhone 5S ,he can hack and get your fingerprints ? :)
I am a bit disappointed with what Apple brought to the table last night. The 5S is a marginal upgrade over the 5 and fails to impress with it's year-old specs. The Samsung Galaxy S4 and the HTC One wowed me with their specs. Dnt get me wrong, I use the 5 now and have used the 4 and 4S before. However, the 5S doesn't give me a reason to upgrade. I know iPhones dnt require quad-core and octa-core processors to run and iOS is optimised to function beautifully on a dual-core chip. But I expected a bump in the screen resolution and the ppi index. The retina display falls short on the ppi count when compared to the flagships from Samsung and HTC. I dnt expect an increase in the screen estate, but I surely wanted a bump in the resolution. And a better camera. The 8mp iSight camera debuted on the 4S two years back and is still offered on a 2013 flagship. I know higher megapixel count doesn't mandate better picture quality, but atleast an optically stabilised lens was the need of the hour. The 5S offers automatic stabilisation and most likely it's digital. It's not difficult to house an optically stabilised lens in a slender chassis, the HTC One does that beautifully. Infact the HTC One is the most beautiful handset out there. I seriously wished Apple to revolutionise the smartphone game again ike it did with the 4 back in 2010. I will be happy with my 5 for now and really hope to see a revolutionary IPhone 6 from Apple next year.
Apple7, 11 Sep 2013To Android users who bluffing us in here,
To use apple IOS you doesn't need dual core and ... moreNice bs story. With these specs even my Galaxy Nexus beats this thing that fell from a tree.
Let's be honest this doesn't add anything accept another poor battery life.
And developer, small time.
Regards from a major ICT company enjoying the cloud with Android 4.3. Very soon 4.4 and I am free to decide what my phone looks like.
P.s. my Nexus 4 beats the .... out of this small time device
droid, 11 Sep 2013i tried and all (galaxy s4 sony xperia z....)LAGING !!! I am an apple user and the i agree with lagging on flashships android phones. the only one that is on pair IMHO is the Nexus 4. period. If the screen wasn't so large I would replace my iPhone 5 for it, even with it's awckward random apps forceclosing (adroid, what would you expect) ?
