I WISH that the 5B came out with a bigger screen 4.5 - 4.8 inch, instead of the 5Cheap. I am looking to get a new phone and thought a bigger iPhone with small bezels was a sure thing! I have used both OS and being a big guy with big hands/fingers, I need a bigger phone than 4 inch! Too bad Apple is ignoring another part of the market. When they do finally bring out a bigger phone, its going to be TOO LATE for many of us big guys & gals.

Hey Papa, they make good products and I wish they made the 5B - for bigger screen! But not this year, so ya, like you I agree, Big disappointment for 2013. The investors agree, cause Apple's stock is taking another beating....just like last year when the 5 came out and they thought it didnt go far enough to impress!

Yeah no need to have facts to back up your opinions. It's a minor detail at best.

What's the benefit of a 64 bit processor?

At best it increases performance. At worst it's future-proofing the device.

That should be a familiar term to Android folk.

Ok Apple has been the same since the Apple iPhone 4. So Apple could become relevant they "borrowed" a lot from Android to make iOS 7.

Apple is the same BORING design recycled from THEIR "junkyard" for 4 years now. Samsung does new things like start a new category , the phablet & make an effort to make their phones look different, NOT like Apple's SAME design 4 years strong.

So really you need to slow your roll because an Apple iPhone literally is a Samsung phone at its heart. Just like a Lexus is a Toyota at heart.

Aluminum costs 40 cents per pound. There's a reason why it is usually used to hold soft drinks. The S4 costs more in parts to make than the iphone 5. So lets not jump all over the premium coke-can feel of some flagships versus the polycarbonate of the majority of others. Design was, is , and will always be a matter of your own personal, individual, and most humble opinion.

"Future proofing. " In what year will they insert 4 gigs of ram into the 5s?

S4 has 13 mps. So now, MPs matter? Specs don't matter to iphone fans....until they find one they have that is actually higher.

It is not a flagship but still more expensive than some other flagships in some areas

Theres actually not any 8 core android devices and none of the quad core phones with 2gb of ram experience lag.

To be accurate, Dell beat Samsung to the "phablet" category with the Streak 5, though Samsung came up with the name (or it came about with the launch of the Note 1 with the "Phone? Tablet? Both." tagline)

It's a gimmick until there is software able to utilize it, which is why we didn't see significant performance gains with the 64-bit processors until there was a 64-bit version of Windows and software companies made 64-bit versions of their products.

"speaking of gimmicks..tell us how 8 cores run your laggy droid?"

this was my first comment ...funny you should get to the conclusion of Samsung....:D kinda proves my point.

while you are busy introducing two non living things (typical sign of over customised OS) please keep a tab on your hatred for Apple.

It's oozing stupidity now

Name all the octa-core chips on the market besides the Exynos 5410. Take your time.

You're oozing stupidity. Just stop before you embarrass yourself even more.

okay youre stating that the 5c isnt flagship yet it has the exact same specs as the current iphone 5....Yet i bet youre willing to say the iPhone 5 is a flagship phone. Another person who is blind by ignorace.

And dont start with the "its plastic therefore it isnt flagship", since when is the materials come in to play? Last i checked a flagship phones has the best available hardware. Something Apple hasnt put in its phones since 2007. Lets face it buddy, Apple stopped being top dog after the iphone 4. Even Blu has phones with better hardware then the iPhones.

does the iphone 5s have andhd screen? NO
does the iphone 5s have a 13mp camera? NO
does the iphone 5s have a quad core processor? NO
does the iphone 5s have 3 gigs of ram? NO
does the iphone 5s have 4k recording capabilites? NO
does the iphone 5s hardware better then its competitors? NO.

How is the iPhone 5s ahead of its time? you guys didnt get 4g till last year.
