iPhone 5s is the Worst update ever.

So they added a processor thats 2x faster than the iPhone 5, a camera that takes the best pictures of any phone on the market and it's running 64-bit now but what else has changed?

A fingerprint sensor, really? A whole new operating system?

The phone still looks like the older phone! It LOOKS the same!

Sure, maybe it's the fastest phone on the market, has the best camera, more apps, console-quality games, more LTE bands than any other phone, dedicated graphics and now motion processors while being the most secure phone on earth but it still looks like the 5.

Features the iPhone needs to get before it's finally a real competitor:

1. user-replaceable battery for those of us who carry an extra battery around with us. (I know ...

The 5S is a better update than the 4S was to the 4.

Your list is never going to happen also. So why even bother?

Lol best camera. Not even close. More apps? Not by a long shot. Console-quality games? If by console you mean the original Nintendo then yes. Hey does Siri work yet? Oh...No. Not yet. Well that is sad. Hey can you have widgets? Oh you don't know what a widget is? I am sorry you are stuck in the 20th century.

i find it funny how ignorant people want apple to change the way it looks, why change some that works, Samsung learned that from Appler the S4 looks almost exactly the S3 all Samsung did was better camera better processer, and gimicky apps like eye tracking that 99% of people dont use, so please tell me how S3 to S4 is any defferent then Iphone 5 to 5S, dont get me wrong i like android, but just want to point out that samsung isnt any different in there new phones then apple

Well its not really the design that we or rather the majority of consumers are disappointed with its the lack of diversity and lack of features. There is a reason Android has taken a large portion of the market share. The reason is variety some people have different needs but all customers like to have a phone that is their own and not a phone that is extremely limited unless it is hacked just to be able to change the theme or color scheme of your phone.

Do all customers need their eyes to be followed when using the phone? No. But progressive customers who know how to use a feature to their advantage do. Do all customers need a finger print scanner to unlock a phone? No. But a business customer who needs that "extra" protection for his w...

honestly my Favorite OS is WP8 but there just isnt enough apps for me, to stay with it, i like Android and iOS they both have there advantages Android has a lot of extra "Gimmicky" features that only acouple people use(but atleast they are there for the people who want to use them) and iOS is all about a quality experiance with the features the most people use, for the most part you can customize a iphone almost as much as a android, the only thing missing a custome txt tones and widgets(which i never use on any og my androids), the only real inovative thing from samsung lately has been the new Galaxy gear coming out with the Note 3(im hopeing Apple a watch for the iphones soon)

but you didnt answer my question why is it okay for samsungs...

I can only believe that you are the only person that doesnt want an sd card slot or a removeable battery.
I also do not think you are being sarcastic.

Out of storage on iphone: let me delete stuff
Out of storage on samsung: let me an an sd card or multiple sd cards.

My battery is bad on my iphone: let me send it in to apple or drive (in my case) 3 hours to the nearest apple store to have them replace it for $100.
My battery is bad on my samsung: order one on amazon for $15 dollars and put it in myself.

I find it funny how ignorant people spout their mouths off about things they don't know about.

One major improvement of the S4 was a bigger screen, with higher resolution, and better pixel density (completely blows away the obnoxiously out-dated retina display). But wait, the iPhone 5s makes no screen improvements whatsoever, and still has the same pixel density as the iPhone 4. It's laughable that after 4 generations they can't improve their screen technology.

Also, Samsung included a bevy of new sensors on the device. In all the GS4 has 9 sensors: gesture sensor, proximity sensor, rgb light sensor, gyro sensor, hall sensor, accelerometer, geomagnetic sensor, barometer, and temperature sensor. Granted, the S3 had 5 of these I think, ...

just like a typical android fanboy you think every thing is about some magical number thats the bigger the number the better, sorry bro thats not the case, if apple has such a bad screen how come its less then 720p screen looks almost as good as the S4's 1080p sceen, and lets not forget the geomagnetic sensor, barometer, and temperature sensor the S4 has that 99% of people dont use along with the IR blaster, dont get me wrong S4 is a great phone, but the iPhone 5S does what a smart phone should be doing(calls, txts, web, apps) better

>>you think every thing is about some magical number thats the bigger the number the better,

Numbers don't lie. I'll leave that to your ilk.


>>how come its less then 720p screen looks almost as good as the S4's 1080p sceen

It doesn't. That's just your crappy uninformed opinion.

>>and lets not forget the geomagnetic sensor, barometer, and temperature sensor the S4 has that 99% of people dont use along with the IR blaster,

Just because you're too dumb to use them doesn't make them any less awesome. And stop assuming that everyone is as dumb and and uninterested in these features as you are.

>>dont get me wrong S4 is a great phone,

Ya, that's what I've been saying.

To reiterate what Zpike is saying.

The iPhone screen doesn't look anywhere near as good as the Galaxy S4 or the HTC ONE. Not even close. Now when the iPhone 4 came out compared to what Android had at the time then yes. But not anymore.

And yes a bigger screen is better. The iPhone is just way too small.

>>The iPhone 5S does what a smart phone should be doing(calls, txts, web, apps) better.

How would you even know that. Have you played with it? No I don't think so.
Making calls? All phones makes calls the same. Txts and web? You have chose with Android on txts and web. And you have great choices for txt and web. Chrome beats Safari hands down. Apps? More apps on Andoid sorry.

>>So they added a processor thats 2x faster than the iPhone 5,

That's Apple's claim, and their marketing department has never been known to skew performance or misrepresent features. No point in reading any actual benchmarks, this is absolutely the fastest processor on the planet.

>>a camera that takes the best pictures of any phone on the market

Of course it does. Apple says so and they couldn't possibly be wrong. I'm sure their 8MP camera totally smokes the 42MP optical lens on the Nokia Lumia. Why even bother reading reviews? Apple has the undisputed best camera of any phone. Watch out Nikon, they're gunning for you.

>>Sure, maybe it's the fastest phone on the market,

Yes, because wimpy octa-core processors will obviously ...

I am not sure if you are aware of this, but all Apple products have Sony cameras in them. It is useing Apples software, but its still a Sony camera. The new Xperia Z phones have an Excellent camera as well as HTC & Nokia. I really doubt it is the best picture from a phone.
