So this is what the iPhone5 hype is all about?nothing new..motorola had fingerprint sensors on some of their phones 2 years back...the camera..they now copy HTC by using ultrapixels..same body same screen..same overpriced phone..buying this is just buying an LG/Samsung handset with a bitten apple sticker at the back..
ish-l92-sheet, 11 Sep 2013what is the size of the screen again???It's exactly the same as the iPhone 5 4 inch screen just like everyone expected, And as expected it's just a better processor stuck in and no real improvements except for software and a pointless fingerprint scanner because they so desperate to look like they innovating they just stuck it on and will act like because no one else has it then it must be good.

It has a healthy App Store. It is still easy to use and in the US, where you get phones on contract all these phones really cost the same over there.
They dominate American market. All they need is a little bit of the international pie and they'll be fine.
The iphone 5s is, I am sure from my iPhone 4S experience, a very well built and reliable phone. It is NOT the best tech you can get by a mile but it'll do fine for teenage girls, women in general who chat and browse purses and jewelry in ETSY.
For the test of us, there are other much better options.
ish-l92-sheet, 11 Sep 2013what is the size of the screen again???Haha.
4 inches. The S release is always a slight spec bump from before.
64bit don't make a bit of difference. Maybe in the future but now. Meh.

But at this point, an iPhone can only be compared with other iPhones. Other manufacturers are just way ahead of Apple in every way. Apple it's its own category. Almost like this generation's feature phone and then we have smartphones from other manufacturers.
- click to read, 10 Sep 2013I prefer a 64 bit operating system, so no Android junk for me.64bit makes absolutely no difference at this time.
Anonymous, 10 Sep 2013yeeeaaa, but it can probably last as long or even more as 3000mAh Android-based smartphoneI doubt it.
My iPhone 4S is rated for how long? 6hrs? Because I only get 3:30hrs 3G browsing.
The 5s is rated 10hrs. We will see about that. iPhones are known for battery life sucking.
Not only do I OWN an iPhone but Steve Wozniak himself made fun of the iPhone crap battery life when they asked him why he carried 2 iPhones.
Also, the iPhone doesn't do much of anything. It still really deals with 1 app at a time. Other phones are doing much more at the same time.
Take the G2 for instance. 5,2" screen. 1080p 425ppi, full Multi tasking, Multi window, sketching, pushing more pixels on a bigger screen. 3000mAh battery it gives you 25hrs talk time, 11+ hrs 3G browsing and 12hrs video playback.
This could be the beginning of the end for Apple since people complained about iPhone 5 having no innovations and this is no different because fingerprint scanning might offer extra security but 99% of people won't use our need it just like most people only use Siri to show off to their friends but don't use it in normal daily use.
And anyway even multi thousand dollars dedicated fingerprint scanners have been shown to be incredibly easy to bypass.
is the battery capacity really 1440 mah. sensuously??. everything seems to have improved (gota take the word for it with the processor, like what the hell is a7 mean. just tell us the ghz n if its dual or quad). but the battery capacity is so crap. this ios seems so demanding on power as well. if anyone knows if this is truly the capacity or not let me know its eating away at me. tweet. mrdarkmasamune
September 2013 ,,, iphone will have a taller screen 4.3 inches :P
Oji-chan, 10 Sep 2013crappy face detection unlock? Never heard about this. Try to check ur face firstI said software, not your face. Please read again
NFC on device?, 10 Sep 2013Is there NFC on the device?They made it clear in the ios 7 keynote before that they don't believe in NFC. In fact they made fun of it "tap tap tap". They do their own thing
As for using the phone for payments, maybe they'll do that with iPhone 6 when they get that fingerprint scanner to do something useful. But don't hold your breath. I'm sure they're scared about privacy and security issues
Im also wondering whether the misely 1gb ram will even utilise the 64bit OS?
[deleted post]Android anyhow write their specs with no full performance. Don't just read. Feel it
Anonymous, 10 Sep 2013the 3rd generation iphone after the 4s 5 and now 5s with a 8MP camera.. when are you going to ... moreThey already talked about that in the iPhone 5 keynote I believe. They told Apple customers that megapixels don't matter. What matters is how much light the sensor captures.
I think it was Jobs who talked about it.
The iPhone 5s is the same phone with the obligatory addition of this year's CPU. That's it
Oh an a new color. Which looks pink to me. And a leather case.

My View, 10 Sep 2013Well I can't say im surprised, lets be honest, what did you expect. Apple have stuck to this ... moreThe A7 is an Armv8 1.7ghz Dual Core SoC. powervr graphics.
RAM: probably still 1GB of RAM. Apple never said a word about RAM. With Samsung getting 3GB of ram and most phones coming with 2GB standard it isn't something that they want to advertise.
Instead they focused on the A7 being 64bit.
