Sorry GSMarena, but here you are so wrong.
" regardless of the fact that Apple keeps on falling behind Android flagships in the specs race"
iPhone 5S has the fastest CPU on the market.
If you had properly test the A7, which may look outdated with a dual core and 1.3GHZ, you'll find out that it's the fastest chip on the market, because it's a new micro-architecture.
Compare Geekbench 3 tests, because you can't compare 32 bit ARMv7 SOC's with an ARMv8, 64bit SOC. Plus, in real world applications, which many are programmed (many algorithms can't be any other way) sequentialy (not paralelizable), Apple's chip really shows.
First thing of all, there will be always disadvantages in every phone. Arguing which phone is the best is useless. Why don't you just choose any phone you like the most from reviews, tests, endurance etc etc. I'm currently using Samsung S4 and iPhone5 yet I don't have any complain on it. S4 for gaming & watching vids due to bigger screen and 5 for my daily usage - sms & calls cause it's easier to hold and not as big as S4. I might be getting 5s anytime soon after more reviews on it!

If people want to walk around with tablets in their huge oversized jeans then go ahead. I prefer a phone.
apple this time didn't offered much in the new iPhone except the TouchID which is the only feature that is taking iPhone 5S to the new hype...
Is the music louder through the ear/head phones than the iphone 5.
I had all iphones and the 5 i got now is lower volume through ear/head phones.
the iphone 4 and 4s was ok just the iphone 5 was lower.
Is the iphone 5s volume levels the same or louder than iphone 5 please?

Not wow, but not bad., better then before.
I don't understand why you want a big display? it doesn't fit in your pocket properly.. the 4" display on the iPhone 5 and forward is fine if you ask me.. it's a phone, not a bloody tablet..
Hey .. Don't buy iPhone 5s Gold. Because stock is low and I want it. Lol.
Still no battery results ?? It's must be so embarrassing to post. Based on the iPhone 5c's result, it can't even out perform Android midrange phones.
zephyr67, 30 Sep 2013oh my god i made a huge mistake by buying xperia z , damn it i should got 5s it so cool Ohh Virtually the same unit from the 4s ...
iPhone 5S can't do FullHD (1920x1080) and not even HD 1280x720) and it can't do this:
53.9fps with Epic Citaldel game engine @ 1920x1080 with Ultra High Quality graphics setting
597K with Anomaly 2 game engine @ 1920x1080 with High Quality graphics setting

There are people who wants small phone just as bad as you want giant phones, whether they are rich or poor.

When is apple going to make the speaker louder? That's my only complaint. Other phones. HTC have great speaker phones Ne iPhone is awful. Thanks. Srhubster@gmail.com
Really?, 28 Sep 2013So to summarise:
1. Apple has created synthetic test monster, yet again, for 2013. So much... more1. Web Browsing on a 4" screen is ridiculous, honestly. Did you know that the majority of uses use Google Chrome over Safari on their iToys?
2. My friends say they are not happy with the battery life of the iPhone. o_O
3. Did yku know you have to pay +200$ just to get a 64 gb version. In my country that would be 1100$
4.we do think 5" is way too big honestly and we don't know why samsung and sony keep making their devices bigger, but 4" is awkward too
5.what about staring at the app icons and changin the background image? What else can you do with the iphone? (Oh, did you know ios7 now supports animated backgrounds?) Wow! INNOVATION!
6.we all know it's expensive, we do, trust me.
7.So I don't know if your iBubble gets updated, there is an HTC phone that screams quality, class, premium feel (all alluminum) - and it's not a tablet
8.The average user doesn't even know what 64 is. They just know it's faster but that's all I suppose
9.Well, of course it's fast. If a developer makes a heavy app that would make the system slower they just reject the app and that's it. And what about downloading anything you want and organizing your folders just like you want to? Or maybe share a photo without actually opening the app? Or maybe plau different formats of video files without converting the file type? The list goes on and on
10.Why not a 4.3" screen? Oh wait, you will have it, not this time bt maybe next time right? And good luck with the one-handed use 4" display that just perfectly fits on the palm of your hand and make everything you want it to do. (I mean, what apple wants you to do)
