Very good phone, touch ID works great, I have dropped it quite a lot of times on concrete and its only got a few scratches on the sides and its never cracked. Mine only has 16GB and its never ran out of storage if you take a lot of pictures I suggest you get one with more space like 64GB. It looks great, its also quite a good money saver compared to the iPhone 6. The size hasn't increased since the previous one but it does what its meant to do.
The iPhone 5S isn’t just supposed to be “the most amazing iPhone yet.” It’s not “the thinnest and lightest iPhone ever.” No, Apple says the 5S is “the most forward-thinking iPhone yet” and “the best smartphone in the world.”
But the screen didn't get bigger, and the design hasn’t changed. Apple’s mid-cycle S updates are always about the little things: faster internals, a better camera, more memory. But this year little things have turned into big things: there’s upgraded 64-bit A7 processor and a hidden fingerprint reader, a better camera and a much-improved new flash. Add those to the new, wholly redesigned iOS 7 software, and Apple believes it has a phone that’s much more than just a refresh. For £199 plus a two-year contract, the 5S is Apple at its swaggering best, believing it can win the spec-sheet arms race while still offering a device anyone and everyone can use. I would recommend this phone to anyone who likes apple products
The iPhone 5S is yet another brilliant phone that has come from Apple, it runs very quickly with little wait time even when using cellular data due to its 4G compatibility. The use of TouchID also makes the phone a lot easier and faster to use as it provides privacy as only you can access it, yet allows you to access it instantly. The screen is brilliant quality with Retina Display meaning that the screen will provide some of the best quality images for a smartphone. As well as this, the camera is also brilliant quality, meaning that any photos that you take will be seen in the same way that you have seen them with your eyes, the only real problems come from the glass used for the touchscreen, this is because it is often very prone to breaking and can shatter with only a minor impact, this can make it difficult to see what is on the phone at the time and can, in extreme circumstances make the phone unusable, however in the time that I had the phone I never managed to damage the screen, as long as the phone is looked after it will not get damaged, it is only through reckless behaviour that it will get damaged
The iPhone 5S is a great smartphone which is easy to use and as long as you are careful with it it could easily last you 3 years. With a stylish look the iphone 5S the phone fits perfectly in your hand and is very easy to use. However I would recommend getting a screen protector because the screens smash easily. On a side note the touch ID sensor is great and is easy for time saving. Another great thing about this phone is being able to make bank payments,however this would be dangerous if you were to lose your phone. The phone also offers lots of apps and games and is very fun and fast.
Considering the various issues that Apple have contended with over the recent years, the iPhone 5S seems to be robust, strong and not suffering from the same signal issues of previous iPhones. As with any smart phone, it has its flaws but it's a step in the right direction for a company previously so much at the cutting edge of technology. The iPhone 5S provides excellent display characteristics alongside a good camera, relatively reliable processor - it's a good all rounder although, if you're looking for something specific, it may not be the ideal choice for you. For instance, for a gaming phone, others may be better, and the same can be said for camera etc. However, the iPhone 5S does provide a good quality of everything which makes it a good smartphone choice for many people.
As with any iPhones, the battery can drain rather quickly, although charging time is fairly rapid also and, having been using mine personally for 18 months, it still holds the same amount of charge that it did when new. Battery degradation over time does not seem to be such an issue. Equally, the processor being used significantly can result in the phone becoming very hot, such as when using GPS. This can be alarming but seems simply to be par for the course for iPhones.
The iPhone 5S is perhaps less aesthetic than the 5C but is of a higher specification and provides a good, reliable all-round phone - a success, then, for Apple.
Apple's A7 actualizes the ARMv8 structural engineering, with both 32 and 64 bit motors. The 64 bit ISA is particularly not the same as 32 bit in that it disposes of a great deal of cruft which has developed in the course of the most recent decade. The broadly useful and coasting register number duplicates and the guideline organization changes and disposes of things like condition code cover on most directions.
Since the A7 is based on custom Cyclone centers (relatives of the Swift centers of the A6 - which still severely thrash SnapDragon center for center), the genuine inquiry is how quite a bit of that speed increment will make it to more non specific ARMv8 plans, and what amount is Apple mystery sauce.
Consider it ... there are truly a huge number of iPhone 5s gadgets out there in shopper hands being utilized, and engineers have the apparatuses to recompile their offerings in 32/64 bit. There are now 3rd gathering applications out there utilizing 64 bit mode.
Everybody has been gotten level footed, including conventional chip architects, Google, and the handset producers. What amount of lead time do you figure it would take to plan the chips, fabricate them, make the handsets, the compilers, and re-try Android or Windows Phone for 64 bit and all the related middleware?
Gotta hand it to Apple. Who else could've pulled off a cap trap like that?
I received this for a Christmas present and a year on it's still working great. This was a concern as iPhones are known for their awful battery lives, however this is not the case! I love this phone and wouldn't want anything else. It is easy to hold and is not too bulky - I also have no issues with the speed of it whilst using it. I would struggle to fault this phone apart from maybe that the speaker and sides can be difficult to clean after a lot of use being in pockets etc.
The settings are easy to control and basically everything can be found and set up clearly. If you're looking for a phone then this would be the way to go, it seems as though everyone has an iPhone these days - another good reason to get one with lots of free messenger options with other people with iPhones. I have also dropped this phone onto hard floors (not on purpose!) and nothing has happened - not even a scratch. I have no idea how some people manage to scratch their screens, it is actually very durable. My phone is a 32GB and I find this to be a perfect amount of storage as I personally believe that 16Gb or less would definitely not be enough as the base package on the phone takes a few GB from that at the start. Any higher would only be necessary if you planned to store a lot of music and photos and videos or something.
Its litrally a nice phone to use and to carry with beacuse sise is just perfect you can get this size in any phone and look better then any samsung and motorola name .even its a apple product so name is everything for the phone before judging it for any thing,
Its really very fast to use phone better grip due to size and perfect screen
A far better camera from any other phone and there is lots of app is available to make it more better ,
Its very secure like if any bussines person who want some security regarding there data and things which he securely put on hus phone this the best phone for hik beacuse apple platform not allow third party software so it is very secure to use for security reasons
You get lot of speed feom the phone it very fast due to
Its 1.4gb processer it may b less for any android phoen but its is more then enough for an iphone
A decent battery life like you can get upto 24-28hour stand-by
15hour of music play10-12 hour talktime
But here its is lacking in data usage where it come to using or browseing internt wifi or playing game it wont give you more then 6 hours
But it very good phone to for the game coz of its 64-bit app support so there are lots of 3rd game available gor this phone
Overall a Great phon to use decent looks apple logo, great performance and lots of feature make it perfect phone ;)
Apple’s iPhone release schedule has been predictable in the past when it comes to number of devices: each year, a single new smartphone. For 2013, that’s changed with the iPhone 5c, as for the first time Apple has eschewed simply bumping down the outgoing iPhone as a lower cost option, and has instead released hardware specifically designed to be more affordable. The iPhone 5c is the result of this rare change in Apple’s game plan, and it makes a good argument for being flexible with product lines Here are the specs of the phone
.4-inch, 1136×640, 326ppi display
16 or 32GB storage
A6 processor (said to be 1.3GHz dual-core w/ 1GB RAM)
8MP iSight camera (rear), 1.2MP FaceTime HD camera (front)
Dualband 802.11n Wi-Fi
Up to 13-band LTE support
MSRP: 16GB for $99 on contract/$549 unlocked; 32GB for $199 on contract/$649 unlocked (subject to change)
Personally I love this phone, I used it for a few months and I loved the color. This phone is made for the colorful person who likes those kinds of phone. Id wait tho for the price to drop bu but other then that its a great phone. The screen is just amazing, watching videos on it is clear. Multitasking is flawless and works like a charm. Calling is clear and Its always fast even with updates, unlike the models before it. You can update it and it does not slow down what so ever! I hope you enjoyed my review about the 5c :)
I have had the new iPhone 5s for about three months now and I have had no issues with it. I would not switch my current phone for any other smartphone. I started out with a 4S and now one even better. The new iPhone 5s has many new features that make it the best phone around. It's very easy to carry in your pocket. It's slim and the perfect size! One of my favorite features is the Touch ID which is the fingerprint identity sensor built into the Home button. I hate leaving my phone open for anyone to see or use and using a passcode can sometimes be so annoying and just an unwanted step. That is what makes the ID fingerprint feature so awesome. The large variety of apps is also an awesome appliance. The iPhone comes with an app store that has thousands among thousands of different apps. The apps range from games to things that could help with school. The app store is definitely a good perk of the iPhone 5s. The internet is insanely fast. Also, you can store any kind of music on your iPhone 5s. The speakers at the bottom of the phone are clear and loud. Now let’s talk about the amazing camera. The camera allows you to capture beautiful images at 8 megapixels. What makes them beautiful is a redesigned camera sensor that allows for bigger pixels. When you have bigger pixels, you get better photos. When it comes to battery life, does any phone truly have a great battery life for a busy college student? No you never seem to have enough battery life. However an iPhone 5s does allow up to 10 hours of talk time, up to 10 hours on Wi-fi internet and up to 10 hours of video playback time. The iPhone 5 can surely make a college student’s life much easier when it comes to things like making calls, sending texts and emails, and of course social networking on the go which we all know is a definite must.
As I said in my title, there's definitely not many improvements from the iPhone 5 and not worth the extra money in my eyes!! The only real difference is the fingerprint sensor, which is neither here nor there, it doesn't make much difference to how you use to the phone. You're literally paying loads of extra money for that one thing. Not worth it all. Don't know why they bothered making a 5S, they should have just waited to release another one with more improvements.
However iPhones in general have these good points:
1) very stylish looking, to be honest I think iPhones are a fashion statement especial with women.
2) great outer camera, focuses great on faces and text. Takes such great clear pictures.
3) even if it kind of is pointless, the finger print sensor is a cool add on to the phone. Although unsure how safe it actually is and if it's accurate.
4) great quality picture. The home screen and the app icons look great, they're also very modern looking.
5) apps already installed on the phone, they're all so useful in their own ways and I'm glad they're pre installed!
6) quick charging time. Doesn't take long at all to get full battery.
There are some bad points:
1) rubbish inner camera, very grainy picture, not good quality at all.
2) even though the battery's quick to charge it runs out very quickly.
The good points definitely outweigh the bad points. And you definitely pay for quality with Apple iPhones. Recommend to everyone!
The iPhone 5s was the better of the two phones released last November. I am a huge fan of Apple iPhones and think they are the best on the market even though the most expensive. The 5s is slick, high quality, feels good in your hand and has many improvements from the previous 5. My favorite addition is the Touch ID, this enables you to lock your phone only to the fingerprints saved on the device. This gives you increased security for you mobile, which now days holds a lot of important information. With the 64GB version of the mobile i cant see how you are ever going to run out of storage being able to hold thousands of photos, hundreds of apps and multiple TV shows and Movies. For the extra price i would go for the 64GB as opposed to the 16GB as the storage can be eaten up quick on the lower model.
The only downfall to the the iPhone 5s is that it is the same old design as the 5. I would have liked to have seen a new design come out from Apple.
Conclusion: I would say the iPhone 5s is another touch of genius from Apple and the continued improvements to each phone they produce keeps me interested for the next model. The iPhone 6 is the latest being a larger model and improved specs. I am still a fan of the 5s, even after owning the 6. I would recommend the iPhone to anyone who is on android, purely down to the quality of the device and the apps there are to offer.
The IPhone 5 is a stylish and easy to use phone. If your used to Apple products then it's much of the same and you won't find many new functions on this phone. I have found Siri particularly useful. Initially I was sceptical but it has turned out to very handy. I use it daily to find out the weather, find the nearest petrol station or to find a local takeaway.
The Worst thing about the IPhone 5s is the battery. If you are browsing the Internet using safari then you will see the battery drain in minutes before your eyes. It takes a long time to re-charge the battery and it doesn't last very long. The phone is in my opinion overpriced and is significantly more expensive than competitors which deliver equal or better performance. You pay a premium for Apple's trendy simplistic design and consumer desirability. Having said that the phone does hold its value well and you get a goid trade in price at the end if your contract and the phones are easy to sell as there is a great demand for there phones. The iPhone's are also the target of thieves due to therevhigh retail value and so you must be careful not to leave them hanging around.
Overall I think the Iohone 5's trendy simplistic design and ease of use is unrivalled. They have a desirability that there competitors cannot match and if you want a phone that is very practical and capable but are willing to pay an extra £100 for a phone that is trendy and desirable then thus is the phone for you.
I have always been on the android team however having so many issues with charger sockets breaking on my phone I decided to try for an iPhone 5s gold needless to say I will be reverting back to an android. So my iPhone got delivered I created my profile and then found out I couldn't lock my phone or turn it off. I googled a fix and found out that this is a common issue with the iPhone 5 but not the iPhone 5s I phoned the company to return the phone who basically said that can't happen the the iPhone 5s as it's a new model and the defect has been fixed I actually had to show the courier the fault before they replaced the phone! Main disadvantages for me were apple don't support flash player I mean how many sites, games, apps use flash player ! Also the casing scratches so easily and the slightest drop diets your phone! The battery life is not so good either I have to charge the phone every day. To be honest in the next model up iPhone 6 I don't see what's NEW apart from the size apple has just become a fashion trend to have in your pocket ! The advantages are the thumb sensor however if your phone has been off you need to use your pass code anyways rather than thumb print ! Siri is a nice touch I must say I do use him a lot espcially since I have just moved he has been spot on in finding the local hairdressers :-) all in all iPhones ain't all that !
