Another marketing gimmick from Apple.
But anyway...
Some goes to Samsung and other manufacturers.

Lol how? Every new feature of the iPhone 5S is a marketing gimmick, especially the 64-bit processor.

Laggy? Have you even seen the multitasking features of the Note 3.?
Lets see the iPhone do that at all, let alone doing it without lag.

See zdnets article on apples 64 bit processor. You will know that it's definitely not a gimmick.

Guy if you know me from anything, then you would know I give it the same way it comes out. I come to have fun here, NOT to get all serious.

I like to ruffle feathers.

I think the only one "butthurt" here is you my good man. lol

I'm not going to spend time looking for an article. Please tell me, what is the benefit of having a 64-bit processor on an iPhone 5S?

It is a gimmick, HONESTLY how much better will games be on Apple's iPhone 5s compared to Samsung's Galaxy Note III. You WILL NOTICE NO DIFFERENCE, well except for screen size...

Gimmick DEFINITELY!!!

It's USELESS to put a 64-bit processor on a iPhone. Please do some research and get informed.

Doesn't matter. Don't try to make an argument and turn the tables when it's not in your favor. :)

Wait till samsung announces it, you'll have all the details and support by then...oh wait...they have already hinted at doing that>> deal with progress of other companies..in other words "forward thinking".

Oh btw, while you are at it try not to be so one sided in your arguments. People still want a well built phone with fluid performance out of the box. Also, that much performance in a thin and 4 inch phone fits the bill for many.

If I have to criticize apple for something, it would be because of not introducing another iPhone with a bigger screen option.

Ahead of it's time?!? Why? How will 64-bit make a real world difference in anything.

If Apple really wanted to turn heads they would make a new looking iPhone with a larger screen. How about 4.5 to 4.7 inches for a start.

Read my post 27, there will be no difference in gaming. It's just something they needed to say to justify the same BORING design.

That is the "simple equation".

I'm pro Apple, but the iPhone 5S is the biggest disappointment of 2013.
