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.

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) ?
Thanks for your latest invention in 10 September 2013
Apple discovered POLYCARBONATE
Samsung Galaxy Note 3 + Samsung Galaxy Gear = welcome to the future...
AnonD-185279, 11 Sep 2013To Android users who bluffing us in here, To use apple IOS you doesn't need dual core and ... morewhat of the cores is a stupid excuse, IOS has a higher development but at what price? all applications must be purchased, and hardware development are far behind the excuse that IOS does not need more ram or cores is rubbish, this phone has everything Atix had a motorola 2010. no innovation, no creation, is more of the same.
AnonD-174358, 11 Sep 2013I am sorry for all who relied on apple for creating something new,advice:better to buy a note ... morewhy dont you go and take your samsung comments and post them on a samsung product, or do they suck that much you dont want to, and as for the note 3, i dont have to say much to that as its crap, the iphone is by fa the best phone out todate
Whew, 11 Sep 2013Sigh. Not siding with any.. But to tell you the truth, Iphone DOES lag and so does android. So... morehonestly i've encountered such thing on my ip4 but surprisingly not yet encountered with ip5.. maybe in the future? i don't know but there is no such thing as a complete package all have issue and no phone is perfect!
But still happy with ios.. android is cool though.
i cannot stop laughing while promo on air for touch sensor . we waste money for only finger print reader.
AnonD-185279, 11 Sep 2013To Android users who bluffing us in here, To use apple IOS you doesn't need dual core and ... morehahaha the 5s better than the S4??? The 5s isn't even better than the S3??? Iphones do lag as I have experienced it myself and as for ios, what you really mean is a bad copy of jellybean!! The Z1 and HTC One are the best phones out there at the moment! Though if the lumia 925 ran android it would wipe the floor with any phone!! Also the best looking phone is the Huawei P1 its stunning!!
droid, 11 Sep 2013i tried and all (galaxy s4 sony xperia z....)LAGING !!! have you tried stack android cos must android phones have a ui the is the main reason why it lags or try the lg g2
Look at the resolution and display as well as other features(except fingerprint)... I own galaxy note 1 ( Korean 4G) and all the features of iPhone5s are below than my phone.I think apple will take 5 years to release the phone like Note 1 and 10 years to release the phone like galaxy S4 and Note3.
