The configuration of this phone is below expectation, coming from a smart phone manufacturing gaint like Apple. It will be impossible for Apple to rule the smart phone market with a smart phone of this configuration as thr flagship phone.
Android is now the gutter OS for all 'other' phones. WP8 is the only contender for iOS rival right now with its own unique selling points.
Sony is compensating somewhat with its brilliant design, but will probably consider WP8 models at some point.
Samsung in the mean time is being sued by Dyson for copycatting their vacuum. The more things change the more things stay the same lol
Love how Apple doesn't follow the features trap and jamming every single feature possible like the Androids resulting in Frankenstein phones (Samsung lol).
Instead we get a superbly thought out phone which keeps on getting more and more polished with each iteration.
Apple or android, 12 Sep 2013Comeon people u know what had happen to apple.. Apple inc. allways build high end mobiles with... moreWho is asking u? Keep your iPhone with u? lol...You are happy with 2 years old technology phone ...lol...hahahaha...Android is far better than iOS. I have used iOS 7 too... my personal experience...Apple lost his innovation trak...lol...
Galaxy S4 is the best smartphone in the world.... Once a time Iphone was best but now a days iphone is losing market status
FarshadPersian, 12 Sep 2013Steve said that he thinks a 4" iPhone is beautiful and larger then that isn't practically... moreAwwwww all cos you can't transfer files on the iPhone you say it's not needed, iPhone is a flop billions off shares when this was announced lol its a flop get over it, and in China they said they don't want or need it lol 7th in China apple. When people pull this out on a train people will laugh and battery is pathetic on iPhone 1440 milliamp total joke
Comeon people u know what had happen to apple.. Apple inc. allways build high end mobiles with the best technology they got with great architecture and perfomance. And samsung is just a mobile maker which gives low cost mobiles with what people wanted with it. Its true maintaing a samsung phone is not big deal just as an apple phone. But after used for sometimes he get enough with the same phone and go for another. Thats what happening around the world. You know ,according to a survey done by the university of oxford most of the people first buy a SAMSUNG mobile and then go for an APPLE. But only 10% or less of people who used an apple go for a android. Thats the truth. Even i am. The reason why apple couldnt make a high market in asia is apple is to expensive for them. Otherwise if the so called apple 5c came in a low price. Today in these comments i would see a complete different things for sure.

I doubt anybody really uses bluetooth anymore as you know we now have Airdrop, bigger battery will result in a larger iPhone making it thicker! More ram, CPU and display will also require larger battery which isn't what Apple is aiming for.
Personally the iPhone 5 and 5s are both fast phones and surely the new 5s will have outstanding bench marks, its a quality built device which stands out plus a very well written iOS 7.
Apple doesnt like to go with the "Spec" game hence why as a lot of people have mentioned here. If you watch the full keynote you will know why they have still used 8MP camera, why they still are gonna have a dual core 1.7 A7 but 64 bit processor.
Android phones need CPU+RAM power to run smooth, iOS on the other hand runs completely differently. There isnt a point of 5s having a 13MP camera when in reality the new 8MP camera takes better pictures?
Its not about the "Spec" on YouTube watch iPhone 5 vs S3 even though its a Dual Core iPhone vs Quad Core Android the iPhone performs better if not same?
Samsung likes to play the game by spec and make people believe "Spec" only matters! Its firstly about what you ENJOY then what you think meets your needs.
Anybody who is deciding on a new phone, go to Apple store on the 20th, use the iPhone 5s without thinking of specs and then run down to Samsung and use their phone without considering spec you will see which you like and which makes you happy.
Personally I used a S4 for a week I love the android and the Samsung specs however iPhone turns out to be more classy, faster and neat to use and hence iPhone makes me happy that's all.
Fingerprint is a new innovation of Apple but why Apple don't think about larger display,bluetooth support on non-apple products,WI-FI Direct,NFC,Group music play like S4 & long battery life like 2000 MAH?
rick.1, 12 Sep 2013ya i know the ram used in new iPhone is faster as compared to other RAM's used in android phon... moreNoted.
There is 2 issue with 720p screen + more ram.
1. More ram = more battery backup is required. Given the size of iPhone, it is not possible to have much more battery power other then in the 1.4k range.
- Thats why Apple solution is to increase the addressing ability and faster arch to push more per cycle.
2. 720p screen means that the developers who hardcoded their app interface will have to change their code.
- Thats why Apple increase the height but keep the width the same, to have all apps to be backward compatible YET have the 16:9 aspect ratio for video watching. They COULD go 4x graphics but never follow the specs like FHD or HD.
IPHONE... game is over. No more bigger screen since many year, no revolutionary models, no bigger changing in new models. No more excitement. No more reason to compare iPhone to other companies like Samsung HTC etc...
Awais , 12 Sep 2013End of apple innovation. What people do with 64bit processor even many of them don't know the ... moreWait next year. Apple not going to release an IPhone with 4.5 or 5 inch unless they make sure all apps compatible with bigger screen and every things works fine as other smaller IPhone. Apple = quality
Android = mess
Anonymous, 12 Sep 2013the way u demand never happen in iphone, please go to andriod
that is not apple tradition
brother I'm using phones of both OS
i was just telling that what things I wanted in new iPhone..
have a great day ahead :)
Anonymous, 12 Sep 2013Faster RAM is preferable in iOS context as opposed on Android.
iOS is sandbox environment, ... moreya i know the ram used in new iPhone is faster as compared to other RAM's used in android phones..
and I know iOS is fluid because it has doesn't has to worry about background processes and true multi tasking
but still a bigger ram and 720p display would allow developers to make more great mobile games and graphic oriented apps for ios which would be beneficial to customers...
PS- I'm not a fanboy of any os or company I personally use a i5 and a htc one...
End of apple innovation. What people do with 64bit processor even many of them don't know the architecture. Expecting bigger screen from apple.
no more innovation left in apple. and they are greedy because it would cost them more to put latest hardwares even being one of the richest company in the world(or the richest). making iphone in 100$ and selling in 1000$. next move remove some restrictions(though i like fingerprint restrictions) like itunes dependent,apple to apple only etc.
