Running their camera apps, there’s nothing too different with their functions and interface. Everything is again kept simple, as the UI isn’t cluttered up with many things. It’s still lacking in the shooting mode department, as we’re only presented with these various color filters. And when it comes to manual controls, you can forget about it on both. With the iPhone 5s, though, it gains the benefit of featuring a slow motion video capture mode, which delivers some slick Matrix-like effects.

Already proving itself on paper as the ideal thing for shutterbugs, the iPhone 5s seems like the leading candidate between the two. Is that really the case? Well, as we peek into the sample images from each iPhone, it’s clear that their qualities don’t differ much with outdoor scenery where lighting is ample. Seriously, our eyes have difficulty in telling the two apart, seeing that the results are the same with their sharp details, neutral color reproduction, and balanced exposure – so yeah, we’re shocked by this revelation considering the better camera gear in tow with the iPhone 5s.

Yet again, the same results persist with their 1080p high-definition video recording qualities. When lighting is ample, the difference between the two is nearly impossible to tell apart – so they’re pretty darn good looking. However, we’re again presented with the low lighting superiority of the iPhone 5s, as it delivers the sharper visuals and smoother recording. In contrast, the iPhone 5c’s video is softened a bunch by the distracting evidence of noise.


You heard right folks! Cover flow mode is no longer available with these two new iPhones, as iOS 7 phases it out in favor of a new, yet more conventional looking music player. Cranking their volumes to the max, there’s no question that they’re able to emit tones that are robust. However, the overall volume output of the iPhone 5c is a smidgen lower than the 5s.

Well, this isn’t a shocker, especially when they feature the same display, but the video watching experience is 100% identical. Playing the same movie trailer, the two iPhones play it with relative ease thanks to their processing might – while their sharp displays help to complement the experience.

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.
