The new Apple iPhone 5s, where S means “same” brings along faster, new camera and a clever fingerprint reader. But is it enough of an upgrade? The iPhone 5S: a phone that looks like the iPhone 5, but goes so much more under the hood. Is that going to be enough to impress the consumers?
Apple obviously is known of this change, be it the unibody of the HTC One, or the new fight into low-light cameras or the need for a strong processor as a headline to shout about. And to be fair, it’s addressed these needs to some degree or other on the new iPhone 5S.
The design of this new iPhone is almost same to the previous one. theres not much really new here that’s going to help you work out if the person sitting next to you on the train is rocking a new phone.
But on the other hand that’s not necessarily a bad thing either; just because it’s not an unique design, this doesn’t make the iPhone 5S any less premium. It’s still a great phone to hold, coming with great things like the all-aluminium-and-glass chassis. Great no?
Apple has launched the new iPhone with not one, but two, chips that will help it become one of the most powerful phones in the market. The A7 and M7 chip are the new and big thing.
So to say that this is the best iPhone yet is pointless, as of course it was going to be. But the combination of iOS 7 freshen things up with a powerful core and great camera mean that this phone should be considered on its own advantagets, and while the high price will continue to put many off, anyone already addicted to the iPhone bandwagon, or even if they’re just on the fence, will find a lot of joy in a phone that’s a lot more than the new update.
