Unlike the U.S., where there is no pre-order period for the full-priced Apple iPhone 5s, Apple is allowing Chinese iPhone 5s buyers to reserve their unit, basically a process being done to prevent the violence that erupted when the Apple iPhone 4s launched in the country in January 2012; under the new system, a Chinese consumer interested in the Apple iPhone 5s texts a special phone number to receive a booking code...

More like 20,000,00 considering the population of China. But I agree, Asians especially Chinese don't know quality if it raped them in the ass. I bet the Gold iphone 5s will be popular there.. makes one look rich

Gold iphone looks tacky, If I were to get a 5s I would have gone with silver one at least it would match with apple's classic MacBook Pro line.

i still dont understand the full use of fingerprint scanner. i mean is there the need for so much security just to unlock the phone?? all my phone has are tons of songs, few videos and couple of ebooks. apple surely concentrated on the wrong aspect of the phone. its like guarding the front door of burger king with national army!!

I agree. It's mainly to protect against someone stealing your credit card info on the phone. but I'm not worried.. I only have $20 in the bank.

It's a check mark feature for their attempt to differentiate instead of looking like they're copying too much in one go
If they added nfc and notification led they would get a little too much flak for being 2 years late to the game.
