iPhone5S

Apple’s newly launched iPhone 5S is a pretty great update to the iPhone, thanks to its first-of-a-kind Apple A7 chip, the M7 motion co-processor and an improved camera with tricks you can actually use but how does it fare against the competition?

Let the specs comparison chart decide that for you.

Some people might’ve been pondering over the inclusion of iOS as an exclusive feature but then again, the ecosystem and experience it provides is pretty much unmatched elsewhere (despite getting surpassed by Google Play recently).

Except for the 4 inch display, most of the things are changed, maybe not so in the naming department but certainly under the hood.

Also the Touch ID is quite an interesting addition which will certainly help in the popularizing of the technology. If you think that these additions make your life easier then you should go ahead and stand in the long queue, but if not, then the list of competitors isn’t short either.
