Interface and Functionality

Consistency has always been a fundamental principle with Apple’s iPhones, so knowing that, it doesn’t really surprise us that both the iPhone 5s and 5c pack the same exact software experiences. Sporting the updated iOS 7 experience, it actually helps to freshen up the iPhone line, seeing that the visual presentation of the platform has been unchanged since the debut of the original iPhone – so it’s refreshing to say the least. From their multi-tasking implementation, to the new Notification and Control Centers in tow, the functionality of the platform doesn’t differ between these two.

Looking through the various organizer apps, it shouldn’t surprise anyone to realize that they share the same functions between each other. Heck, even Siri talks and acts the same. As we mentioned earlier, the iPhone 5s bears a biometric fingerprint scanner dubbed Touch ID. It might be viewed as a novel thing by some, but it provides the phone with an added benefit that enables us to unlock the phone.

Same sized screens, same messaging experience – that’s essentially what we get here folks. Flaunting the same keyboard layouts, combined with their responsiveness and phenomenal auto-correct features, we’re able to speedily type with ease.

They could have compared both of these hansets with its 1st generation iPhone 3 and still it wouldn't have been much different. Both devices are equally ridiculous, overhyped and overpriced.

Holy crap I just realized the 5s doesn't have the little square on the home button. Apparently they couldn't get that to work with a fingerprint scanner. Total deal-breaker.

Not on mine, but there is the Atrix. And phones with fingerprint scanner is problematic in many ways. I would rather not have a fingerprint scanner on my phone.

Except ALL those Truly Useful things they currently refuse to do like: - Wireless Charging - NFC - A Larger/Easier to Read Display - A Display of at Least a 720p - Reasonably Priced Storage Upgrades - Industry Standard Charging Port e.g. MicroUSB - The Ability To Set a Default Browser, Music Player et al of One's Choice. ... and on... and on... The iPhone is a solid enough choice for some, but it's far from being the ideal smartphone, and when it comes to 'copying' there are few who do more copying than Apple e.g Android Notifications, Android Control Center, webOS Tasking Switching, Windows Phone Lock Screen, Nokia Polycarbonate Shell/Color Choices, et. al.

This article has nothing to do with Samsung. And if they do make the 64-bit processor, it will not be useless, like it is on the Iphone.

I will say it again, all the haters on both sides just talk out of their assholes. i am willing to bet none of you has ever made, produced, or even designed anything. You just sit on your lazy boys and bitch. If you are all so smart and know what the american public wants then please design me the perfect cell phone and produce it. Both sides have great features no one is superior to the other, thats why they exist CHOICE.
