With their gingerbread copy? IOS 7 was nothing more than copied partial catchup. Fingerprint sensor was pure copy.
The only somewhat original thing that Apple did was go 64bit, but that was just modifying ARMs already announced and being worked on 64bit cores. And it was next to meaningless because they left the RAM at 1gb.

"Apple isn't original."
"Lolol so revolutionary!"
"Apple is doomed."
"iPhone sold well? iSheeeps would buy anything Apple makes!"
You know what's more boring than iPhone's "boring design?" Haters. EXACTLY the same sh*t every year.

Fingerprint sensor is looking to be 2013s technology fail, what with apparent multiple hacks being posted within the first week of it shipping in the 5S.
Nothing like Apple innovating, eh?

i bet you will change your tone in your post once Samsung, Sony, LG, HTC adds a fingerprint sensor to their device.

LoL. More like 1 year behind. For each version of iOS release, there are more copycat from Android.
Control center - Android had it for ages.
Swipe to close app?
Apple know they are far behind Android and are making desperates moves now, to catch up.
Never release 7" tablet - Ipad mini!
Never bigger screen then 3,7" - Yeah sure!
Colorful plastic IP5C - Android and WP have it long time ago.
So who is far a ahead uh?

I would mind a powerful dual core with insane graphics in my android too.

"Apple’s own ecosystem allowed the company to stay out of the largely meaningless quad- and octa-core race"
This was true before iOS7, but not true anymore, my old iPhone 4s and Xperia s now have the same performance level. previously iPhone 4s was way faster than Xperia S but after the Xperia S got 4.1 update it came so close to the iPhone 4s level, and after the 4s got iOS 7 with multi-tasking ability, its performance went down making both phones (with more or less the same chips power) have almost the same performance level.

Thank you for speaking the truth. Apparently, users are claiming no lag in iOS 7 when real world use, it's too much for the phone a to handle.

the iphone 4 and 4s completely fail at running IOS 7.

Like i said a simple Google search will expose iOS lag. But ifans don't know what Google is....

Don't you wear that on your head when you swim?
Google search is native in iOS6 and replaced by Bing search in iOS7.

No lag on the iPhone 5 whatsoever and it's custom A6 SoC On the other hand the iPhone 4 has an 800mhz single core processor of very old design.
Add in real multitasking and iphone users habit of never closing background apps and it's an obvious recipe for complaints.

Apparently it only has 1gb of ddr3 ram, which is pretty mid range, sorry papa smurf. I guess 1gb of ddr3 is still better than the 2gb of ddr2 in the suck t c one, sorry I meant HTC one, though.

Ram is much less important since iOS runs it's apps natively.

Hahahahahah! iSheeeps will praise APPLE what ever they release. Even if their smart phones are YEARS Behind to SAMSUNG, LG, HTC, They will still believe and bash other companies that their beloved crap iPhones are innovative, Better. Jeez iPhones lately are so Boring, Useless, Features, Still Over Priced. Come on, what's new with 5S? updated camera? Meaningless Finger print scanner? What's amazing with those? hahahahah. Really, the isheeeps are just going with the trend and doesn't know anything about Technology. Pathetic iSheeeps.
