Sony and Samsung have a waterproof phone - isn't that innovative enough for you to take photos in the pool? or when your phone drops in water you don't get frightened as you did with other phones...
Does it make any difference with 64 bit and 32 bit processors on a phone when you use it for normal usage such as browsing, making calls and normal applications? This is just a marketing gimmick. As if users are going to use it for heavy data crunching. The color schemes for 5C and 5s seem awkward. Follow the old ipod? The screen size is too small.

Samsung also finally realised that the way to preserve a brand is by NOT making radical changes with every release. S3 -> S4 is the best example.
Technically 64bit is supporting large address then 32bit. But this doesn't prove to be faster then 32bit. The only extra bit address is to support more resource bottleneck then on 32bit especially ram limit on 4Gb address. But did Iphone 5s using more then 4Gb ram. What the point? Made the touch ID encryption longer for finger accuracy? Or maybe security fool proof?
Sheron Perera, 11 Sep 2013First of all Apple company should be innovative if they want to face with current mobile phone... moreThere is nothing out there that innovates at the moment. Large screens and octacore are not innovation. Apple is just on the same boat as everybody else. They are not lagging behind like you Android fanboys are implying.

If you want the bells and whistles, stick to your android.
Also, iTunes has allowed you to download music straight to your phone since launch, what are you talking about? Shows that you actually don't know much about iPhone.
I personally just cant stand the hype. its just extremely obvious that people like iphone because its COOL. Lazy consumers. They dont want to adjust the camera settings. They just wanna put a skin over it and post it. They dont want a 5" screen, they dont want widgets, they dont want to download their music strait to their phone instead of going home to hook it up to their cpu. They dont care about having more than 8mp....
They just care about having a phone that everybody thinks is JUST FINE. Apple is telling u what u will be happy with. The fact that people are fine with the camera is amazing. Please evaluate yourselves
iPhone5S is looked like the same as original iPhone5 - The only changes are - the button, the processor and iOS7. Others are same...Apple sucks! Take our money...
Why is the iphone double the price in Australia.
Why bother to even consider to buy it - even a Blackberry Z10 is better priced
"In fact the $739 iPhone 5C isn't a really $130 price cut on the iPhone 5, because Apple has bumped up the price on the iPhone 5S by $70 to $869. The new "budget" iPhone 5C is only $60 cheap than the old iPhone 5. When you look at the Australian entry-level iPhone pricing over the years, the price of the iPhone 5C is nothing to get excited about. If anything it shows us that the iPhone 5S is more expensive than usual, in fact the most expensive entry-level iPhone ever.
iPhone 3G (8GB) - $719
iPhone 3G S (8GB) - $759
iPhone 4 (16GB) - $859
iPHone 4S (16GB) - $799
iPhone 5 (16GB) - $799
iPhone 5C (16GB) - $739
iPhone 5S (16GB) - $869

First of all Apple company should be innovative if they want to face with current mobile phone manufactures like Samsung,htc & etc. And what is the point of making 5S same as iPhone 5. You can see only minor things are changed, there are no display size change,no camera change (only aperture and 1080p with 60p changed) Lame right. And every single thing will need to be purchase from there app store..!
right, 11 Sep 2013yeah right, apple always use his own idea..
android always copy.. Burst Mode - Android Since 2012(Galaxy S3), IOS 2013(Iphone 5s)
Best Shot - Android Since 2012(Galaxy S3), IOS 2013(Iphone 5s)
Who always copies?
Anonymous, 10 Sep 2013Touch ID is nothing new, Motorola had this and it didn't improve anyones life and 64bit is not... moreI didn't say it was NEW, I said that the implementation is very different and the user experience makes much more sense than any other implementation before. Apple create things that make sense and are easy to use. Sharp, Motorola and Fujitsu have used fingerprint scanners for years, but in a very awkward way. The ATRIX scanner is an example of how not to implement it.
And please provide me with a source of Motorola implementing 64 bit chips on a smartphone.
"There is also a Burst mode, which would shoot up to 10fos for as long as you keep the on-screen shutter pressed. Best of all, it would analyze the stack of burst photos and would automatically offers the ones it finds to be the sharpest." - Already on android since Galaxy S3. http://skp.samsungcsportal.com/integrated/popup/HtgDetailGuide3.jsp?seq=7995&cdsite=in
"While you're recording video, you'll be able to zoom in on a subject without stopping" - On Nokia 1020 plus optical image stabilization http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tTTRRFlLNEQ
"The Panorama would reach up to 28MP" - Galaxy S4 ( Panoramas are pretty impressive, they go a full 360° circle or more and can be as big as 60MP )
Kindly read and research before commenting, so you would not be posting ignorant comments.
Stupid company apple has same design functions from iphone to iphone 5c. Their software is same no matter what. The phone display size same like 4 inch display and they design the chip but one company makes apple's chip and phone display is ips lcd which made by LG company, and camera is made by Sony company. So apple company aren't brainstorming but they are brainwashing. Apple will be bankrupt no matter what.
pinky2013, 11 Sep 2013I been a apple fan since apple 3GS
Apple processor have always been fast
But let’s face it... moreYou FAIL! FANDROID!
Apple needs the faster 64 bit chip for the next generation of software! Apps for iOS have serious capabilities unlike their toy counterparts for poor old Android!
The 64bit A57 ARM is what Apple was building under everyone's nose and now the rest of the industry is left with outdated 32bit A15 derivatives (at best)...
I been a apple fan since apple 3GS
Apple processor have always been fast
But let’s face it I had enough
If I phone 5 processor was too fast for this you do on the I phone(example swipe – home- swipe- browse –home –swipe- camera)
Why the hell would I want to pay extra for twice the speed to swipe – home – browse again.
It’s like giving a Bugatti to an old lady to drive at 50km/h
Doesn’t make sense apple stop treating your customer like fruits.
Apple copied android again...the motorola atrix 4g had the finger print scanner since gingerbread and a dock where you can use linux, slow motion video was in by default in my padfone infinity for quite a while now can't they think of anything new. they're just playing catchup with android and winmo.
