Apple iPhone 5S - Expert Reviews

Introduction

Finally Apple has unwrapped its most awaited iPhone 5S and a less expensive iPhone 5C to the smartphone market and progressed miles of steps ahead of time by introducing features that are not just present because this model is the next version but because they are technologically useful to the users in many aspects of their lives. Taking into account the quantum of technology we are surrounded with, these features should be the logical next! Let's have a surface view of the specs provided by iPhone 5S. The 64-bit mobile architecture is a trailblazer and totally innovative and with this Apple iPhone 5S becomes the world's first smartphone to have this technology. These first-of-its-kind features and hardware changes are brought to you in a body that measures a slender 7.6mm and weighs only 112 grams.

Such dimensions clearly show that the engineers and designers have redesigned this model multiple times during its developmental stage to provide such a thin yet extraordinary handset. To eliminate the hassle of remembering passwords, Apple introduces fingerprint touch sensor beneath its home button. Your fingerprint is the best password – you do not need to remember it since it is always with you – and touching the home button as touch id comes naturally if we question the location of the fingerprint sensor. Apple engineered a new chip and an all-new co-processor, just to improve the performance of the device without affecting its battery life. Designing a chip right from the scratch so as to be the best at providing efficiency is a very dedicated move! Its superb camera - with a larger image sensor, a larger aperture, and an increased light sensitivity, give it a further boost. In addition to all these fantastic features, iOS 7 completes iPhone 5S in terms of forward thinking. 

Operating system and UI

Apple iPhone 5S features a flawless design and boosts its anodized aluminum body with diamond cut chamfered edges. Though the features get more and more as compared to its siblings yet the size is kept remarkably thin and light. It is just 7.6mm in thickness and weighs around 112 grams, which certainly is loved and appreciated by the customers. The model is available in three metallic finishes including Silver, Gold, and Space Gray. To provide further flexibility to the customers regarding the hues, the company has designed leather cases in six rich colors - Beige, Black, Blue, Brown, Yellow, and Red -with color matched micro fibre lining. It offers a stunning 4-inch screen, with a screen resolution of 1136 x 640pixel and a pixel density of 326ppi along with retina display and glass inlays. The user interface has been enhanced by introducing the fingerprint sensor at the home button. iOS 7 brings to you a stunning new user interface, completely redesigned with distinct, functional layers that make it feel more alive and interactive. Such a user interface and a crystal clear onscreen view allow you to read e-books, webpages or other texts, play games or watch videos with ease.

Other Features

Apple iPhone 5S offers an excellent audio and video playbacks which allow you to enjoy your collection (music, videos) to the fullest and at the best of quality. It supports all the famous and commonly used file formats so that you do not have to worry about the file extension before transferring some particular files to your smartphone. You need to synchronize with iTunes software in order to transfer music or video files from your laptop/PC to your mobile or vice versa. The sound quality is extremely good and along with such a great screen, it makes your entertainment time more engrossing and interesting.

Camera

Looking at the camera section, we again see that Apple thinks very differently and hence its progress is exponential. Instead of increasing the number of pixels, they found it better to make individual pixel larger, which means at the same 8-megapixel resolution, you will now get a better picture. This is done by introducing an all-new 8MP sensor, which provides larger pixels rather than more pixels. In addition, the company has also introduced a larger aperture up to f/2.2. If we add all these features, it is seen that light sensitivity is boosted by 33%, which is a very significant progress as more the light, the better, and sharper the images are. The True Tone flash further helps you to click accurate pictures as it intelligently figures it out how much light your shot requires. Even if you are not a professional photographer, these additional features of the camera will make you look like one. Camera applications in iOS 7 provide up to two times faster auto-focus, faster photo capture, automatic image, and video stabilization. Some other features supported by iPhone 5S are a new Burst Mode, Slo-Mo video with 120fps, a new FaceTime® HD camera for better low-light performance and audio-only FaceTime calls with iOS 7. The FaceTime camera allows you to go for 1.2MP photos and 720p HD video recording.

Connectivity

Apple iPhone 5S offers all the features with which you can stay connected globally and locally anytime and anywhere. Some such features are EDGE, GPRS, 3G with HSPA speed, and Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n with dual-band (2.4 GHz and 5 GHz). In addition, it offers download speeds up to 100Mbps with which you can browse, download, and stream content even faster. Other interesting feature is that you can wirelessly synchronize your iOS phone to your Mac or PC over a shared Wi-Fi connection.

Memory

This smartphone is available in 3 variants, one with 16GB of storage capacity, other with 32GB and the third with 64GB of internal memory. The internal memory specification is not clearly mentioned at the launch but is expected that all the three variants render 1GB of internal memory. Unfortunately, there is no provision to expand your memory once it’s full, in that case, you will have to delete the unwanted files or transfer it to iCloud. So pick your model very carefully before buying your model.

Other Features

Apple iPhone 5S provides many built-in applications to better the experience of the customers. Some apps include Maps, Messages, Passbook, Weather, FaceTime, iTunes Store, Safari, Calendar, Voice Memos, App Store, Mail, Newsstand etc. Many apps can be downloaded free from the Apple Store like Find My Friends, iTunes Festival, Trailers, Keynote, etc. In addition, the Apple Store also hosts a huge collection of games. iOS 7 has hundreds of great new features, including Control Center, Notification Center, improved Multitasking, AirDrop, enhanced Photos, Siri and introduces iTunes Radio, a free internet radio service based on the music you listen on iTunes. The A7 chip is coupled with M7 “motion coprocessor” that will continuously measure accelerometer, compass, gyroscope and input that data to any app that needs it. This idea makes iPhone 5S a health/fitness tracker device for most of the people.

Battery

iPhone 5S boasts of a strong battery which promises to provide an amazing 10 hours of talk time on 3G network, up to 10 hours of web browsing on Wi-Fi and LTE networks, and up to 8 hours on 3G network, and up to 10 hours of video playback, up to 40 hours of audio playback and 250 hours of standby time. Its CPU performs 40 times faster than the original iPhone and the all-new A7 chip and M7 co-processor make this handset better in both performance and battery life. The 64-bit architecture provides desktop type processing speed at the hands of the user and grants 2 times faster performance at both CPU and graphic level.

Connectivity

The iPhone 5S has up to 13 LTE bands which allows iPhone 5S users to access high-speed internet in many countries around the world. It features almost all the connectivity features like Wi-Fi with dual band, 3G, EDGE, GSM, GPRS, and Bluetooth 4.0 so that you can stay connected to your network globally and locally.

Other Features

With its A7 chip and M7 co-processor, iPhone 5S towers over any competition at the very first step. In all dimensions, iPhone 5S is thinner and lighter than HTC One and with desktop type processing speed, it leaves the latter smartphone and Galaxy S4, miles behind. It has more storage options like 32GB and 64GB apart from the 16GB option, which is missing in Xperia Z1 - offers only 16GB of storage capacity. Its dual-LED facility is also a missing feature in all the three rivals mentioned above.

Other Features

Apple iPhone 5S: has been unveiled to the smartphone market today and as expected, it received a warm welcome from critics and customers alike. Almost all the specification leaks found before the launch have proven to be true along with certain surprises that were unwrapped today only. The 64-bit architecture is pioneering and by this, Apple can once again trigger competition in the market. Certainly, the handset has some rivals lined up and it is yet to be seen if they can in any field, affect its fame.

Important features of Apple iPhone 5S are:

*        64-bit architecture to provide desktop type processing speed at your hands

*        All new 8MP sensor to provide larger pixels rather than more pixels

*        The finger-print sensor at home button which acts as your touch id and password

*        Support for a large number of 4G LTE bands along with Wi-Fi with dual band (2.4 GHz and 5 GHz)

*        iOS 7 complements its 64-bit A7 chip, the touch id fingerprint identity sensor, and the new iSight camera, boosts this phone's capacity of forward-thinking

*        A better battery life so that you have a whale of a time to enjoy your collection and files

Same look, small screen, big potential

Editors' note (September 19, 2014): The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are now the flagship phones in Apple's 2014-2015 product line. However, in addition to the iPhone 5C, the iPhone 5S (reviewed here) will remain on sale at a reduced price. The 16GB model now sells in two configurations: 16GB ($99 with a typical 2-year contract in the US, $549 off contract; 459 in the UK; AU$749 in the Australia) and 32GB ($149 on contract, $599 off contract in the US; 499 in the UK; and AU$799 in Australia).

The iPhone 5s Review

For much of the iPhones life Apple has enjoyed a first-mover advantage. At the launch of the first iPhone, Steve Jobs expected the device and OS would give it a multi-year head start over the competition. Indeed thats how the market played out. Although Android was met with some early success, it wasnt until well after the launch of the first Android devices that we started seeing broad, mainstream acceptance of the platform. The iPhone bought Apple time, and together with the iPad it brought Ap Read full Review

iPhone 5s review

Forward-thinking. It's ironic that Apple's marketing slogan for the iPhone 5s invites us to look ahead to the future when, from the outside, the device looks like a carbon copy of last year's model, the iPhone 5. But just like any other odd-year iPhone -- the "S" version, if you will -- the 5s plays the Transformers card by offering more than meets the eye, with a few key improvements on the inside.Though it's easy to dismiss this handset as iterative, the 5s is the first smartphone with full 64 Read full Review

Apple iPhone 5S review

The iPhone 5S is Apple's latest flagship smartphone, one that tweaks and enhances the iPhone 5. With almost all of 2013's smartphone models revealed - except for the Nexus 5 - this is where Apple sets out its stall for the next year.The "S" models from Apple can seem a bit disappointing for those who upgraded the year before, but can the same be said for this latest 2013 upgrade? Does it match the hype for this model that saw more leaks than any previous iPhone? If you are an iPhone 4S user just Read full Review

Review: Apple iPhone 5s

I pull my iPhone out of my pocket, tap the home button, and let my thumb linger an extra second longer than I normally would have. The lock screen fades away and the iOS 7 home screen zooms into view, each icon landing neatly on the display. Its an instinctive gesture iPhone owners have been doing for the better part of six years, and yet it still feels like magic: I just unlocked my phone with my thumb.
