Ah, the Apple iPhone 5S has finally been unveiled, and it's about to hit the market on September 20. The new iDevice seems to be extremely powerful in terms of hardware, but it also packs some very interesting new features like the Touch ID sensor that enables fingerprint security...

Yes coz in 2010 there were a hundred phones with a 64 bit CPU architecture and an OS that supported it. Oh wait that's 2013-14 and there's only one phone! :O

Educate yourself first before bragging about 64 bits, you are embarrassing yourself

Don't care if its 64bit, its still a dual core 1.7GHz processor,
Not very futuristic.

perfectly optimised to for what? Do you know what technological optimisation is? Its not an android but the processor is manufactured by samsung.
They say you're an apple undercover salesman, it'll make more sense.

When is someone going to admit that the iPhone is the most popular mid - range device that can out perform many high end devices! Looks nice by the way! But let's be honest here!

PhoneArena is a bunch of hypocrites. With some phones with features like these, they think they're yesterday's. But since it is Apple that has made ‚Äč‚Äčthis phone so it's okay with these features. "Yes super-fine details won't be as clear as on a 1080p screen, but do we really need such type of clarity?". I remember when they said that the clarity of the Lumia 1020s display wasent enough. And it has a higher ppi than the iPhone 5S. Ridiculous...

If ONLY ppi decided the display quality, My 5 year old Xperia X1 with a ppi of 312 can beat most of the phones out there. It doesn\'t.

PA was kind of criticizing 1020 because of it's low pixel density compared to the 1080p panels on Android flagships, but when the iPhone has a sub-400 ppi display, it's alright and we don't need that much clarity. They weren't judging on display quality overall, they specifically called out the pixel density.

I'm not usually one of those fanboy conspiracy theorists, but it is kind of weird.

If they were criticizing the sub-400 ppi then i agree they are biased. Or could be that different authors have different opinions. Still PA should maintain their standard.

Yeah that 64 bit tag is nice I guess for future proofing, does this mean other iphones are going to be left behind in a year or so?
Seems cool mojo is replaced by tech and it doesn't seem to offer any bragging points over last year's at this point, some of the fans are going have to dig, to defend that as year goes by I'd guess.
We'll see.

Apple, your specs are so outdated compared to your competitors. Now I know some of you would complain that what matters is real life performance and usage but I think that the 5s is just a silly minor update over its predecessor. They no longer have iNnovation

Right...but phones like \"iPhone\" \"Lumia\" & \"BlackBerry\" got an optimized software so they wouldn\'t care about the hardware much...cuz they don\'t need it unlike Android which is power hungry all the time ...and I used all phones and trust that\'s enough hardware for them...plus its a company strategy and they know what\'s best for their phones, we are just consumers.

Underwhelmed. Same tiny, narrow screen as before, a better graphics processor to play games I don't play. A fingerprint scanner which no doubt will automatically upload your fingerprint to an NSA/FBI database without your consent

remember, Apple is STILL a computer company, and make dam fine pc\'s, but they forget to add all the cool shiz in thir phones.
they rely on shieeple and hot chicks n their enabelers to buy tha crap they sell. all the iphones past the 4 are girls phones. thats y the screen is the same size, for their women customers. they dont care bout function, just \"OMGGG, IPHONE!! LIKE OMGGG\" ;\'\'( \"(sigh) yes jessica if u can have the new iphone after we bang.\"
u all know ur girl, if u have one, wants that damn useless phone. u have to rely on apps for function. at least android get it written in the OS

Anyone know what the ram is? Apples official spec sheet doesn't say and some day it's 2gb team but can't find confirmation anywhere.
