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)
Apple is lacking innovation. They won't change the screen size for a while I'm afraid, otherwise developers would just get angry at the fragmentation it'll have. There are no "wow"s anymore, and people are buying other phones, because they want a phone THEY think its perfect not APPLE. Apple thinks a 4" phone is the best but does the majority of users agree? Ehat about costumization? Do people really want just a notification and icons change?
the iphone has a premium feel- HTC One
it is a status symbol- xperia z
everybody has it -s4
I really like apple and the products they make are perfect but they have to start changing the iphone.
I read the review and it was so boring... Three years later Apple is going to end up like blackberry... Blackberry became boring and predictable... Apple is doing it now...

You are kidding yourself in telling that this is an exclusive to certain group. You want exclusivity and status, get yourself a Vertu.
iPhone is classy to me. Only a few Android phones makes it feel classy, although we have ton of them at the market. Example is HTC One.
I have been using higher end android phones & iPhones. Currently I am using iPhone 5 running iOS 7. iPhone is definitely better than android phones. You get a great feel when u hold an iPhone in your hand. Also the phone never crashes. iPhone is for people of classes & not for masses.
Max Sterling, 30 Sep 2013From Corning official website, iphones (as well as other apple products) are not among their l... moreII would say almost all phone manufacurers have assembly facilities in Asia. So I don't your opinion is valid. Also, please check the torture test done by people like Android Authority
As for no mentions of Apple in the list, this is very likely Apple style. In the website Corning also says that due to agreement, not all products are listed. Samsung fabricate their chip but you never heard Apple mentioned it.
xtzee, 30 Sep 2013Let them post the Snapdragon 800 benchmarks. Then we'll talk about the A7.Check this review from anandtech. I would say this is a very good technical review so regardless your preference you will still learn a lot.
video recording is 1080p@30fps,and don't forget 720p@120fps
but at all, apple should provide more features. apple is very slowly update
I've been an Android user for years now mainly with Samsung, but I've decided to sell my S4 & get an iPhone 5s 16Gb this time around here why.
One of the main reasons for getting rid is the size of the thing over the years Android smartphones have got bigger & bigger with no end in sight, it now feels like i got a slab of slate in my pocket rather than a phone, I have no problem at all using the iPhone 5s 4" screen, I'm just glad it still small compared to the current crop of Android smartphones today.
I can still do everything i do on an Android device happily on an iphone, I tend not to game or watch movies hence another reason not needing a 5" screen, I have the new Nexus 7 for all that.
Also resale value, Android devices never hold their price well when it comes to selling on, next year the S4 I9505 will be practically worth nothing, because Samsung have decided to bring out the Snapdragon 800 version sometime this month or next, least with an iPhone you get a good resale price when the time comes to upgrade.
And the final nail in the coffin for me with Samsung was the introduction of KNOX, if i buy an Android device I like to do what i like with the software, like i have done with past Galaxy S phone's, Samsung have now stopped you using software from other region's or using lower firmwares ect as this now voids the warranty with no solution to reverse it, if i'm gonna be locked in then it might aswell be with an apple iOS as this is optimized for the phone so have no need to mess about with it, unlike touchwiz which even on the latest handsets lags, and there no saying the likes of HTC,Sony,LG ect won't implement their own lock down security software in the future neither.
So from now on my smartphone will be from Apple, and my Android device will be a Nexus Tablet.
This is a phone not a tablet! So small and light is preferred!
If you want large screen.. there is a product called iPad with optimised apps for the large screen.
UNLIKE android with large screen.. there is TOTALLY NO optimised app for that screen. Everything bloated up.. look ugly and totally NO PRODUCTIVITY!
People scream at the fingerprint sensor, dismissing it completely. i say USE IT, USE IT.. once u USE IT, you know how Great it is, how seamless how easy, IT MAKES MY OFFICE fingerprint lock function like crap! Now i wanted every fingerprint scanner to LOOK just like that! .. a round ring with a button!!!
People dismiss the A7 and COMPARE it with a s800!! .. Your comparing a iphone class cpu/gpu with a phalet class cpu/gpu?? That is clocked over twice as fast?? And you know how much BATTERY is needed to run s800 compared to A7? and the s800 does not come with seperate sensor like M7.. SO basically when u autorotate.. it Slow unlike iPhone 5S.
For haters, TEST IT Before You condemn it! I use all kinds of phone android iphone ipad nexus samsung htc motorola sony(ok i never try huawei or oppo or cheaper brands) i still come back to iPhone / iPad!!
oh my god i made a huge mistake by buying xperia z , damn it i should got 5s it so cool
From Corning official website, iphones (as well as other apple products) are not among their list. Meaning iphone 5s does NOT have gorilla glass. The posted specs are wrong about this.
The original Apple products like iphone1 and ipod 1 still adopted gorilla glass, but the newer iphone 5s//5/4s stopped using it. Multiple media reported that since the iphones are assembled in Asia, Apple is using Asian manufactured glass now. Apparently Apple did lots of homework to further reduce the manufacturing cost despite that numerous complaints arose from the internet regarding iphone screens are more breakable than those of androids.

I thing that Apple made it again.
Big event, noise, buzz etc.
And they made cheap model to spread iOS even better.
That's clever move again.
Despite that i'm not a Apple fan, i respect their evolution and quality work.
At the end, the battle for specs, performance etc. is just for the big fans. And it's useless. If you like Android go for it. If you like Apple - buy it.
I'm just a Nokia fan and Nokia is already out of the game.
Wish you all the best!
i know alot of people complain about the small screen... but at the end of the day it's easier to navigate and the design IS ELEGANT. so u can't beat that.
4 inch screen wont just cut it..Apple can do better if they would only listen. Loyalty has it's limits.
The trick is to keep evolution in motion - not too slow otherwise users won't upgrade to every new model - and not too fast otherwise nothing new is left for the next model.
