Apple unveiled its latest addition to its Iphone series in the shape of Iphone 5S in White, Black and New Gold Edition with 4 inches of Retina display, IOS 7, A7 and M7 Chip with Finger Print sensor. The phone itself doesn’t varies too much from its predecessor Iphone 5 except some exciting features.
Iphone 5s supports 4inch Retina Display that supports 1136 x 640 resolution with 326 pixels per inch which seems to me similar to its predecessor Iphone 5. This display seems to me backward integration from Apple as now we can see 1080p devices on many Android devices with higher pixels per inch and one of the great example is Htc One and S4.
Iphone 5s is powered with mighty A7 chip which is 1.7Ghz Dual core and gives you CPU and graphics performance up to 2x faster than the A6 chip which is in Iphone 5. A7 makes iPhone 5s the first 64-bit smartphone in the world — that’s desktop-class architecture in a super-slim phone. And because iOS 7 was built specifically for 64 bit, it’s uniquely designed to take advantage of the A7 chip. Apple also make a wise step by putting in a new M7 coprocessor which is like a sidekick to the A7 chip.
It’s designed specifically to measure motion data from the accelerometer, gyroscope and compass, a task that would normally fall to the A7 chip. For example if we are using a fitness apps that track physical activity it can access M7 coprocessor without constantly engaging the A7 chip and in result give less burden to battery. Moreover, M7 knows when you’re walking, running or even driving. For example, Maps switches from driving to walking turn-by-turn navigation if, say, you park and continue on foot. Since M7 can tell when you’re in a moving vehicle, iPhone 5s won’t ask you to join Wi-Fi networks you pass by. And if your phone hasn’t moved for a while, like when you’re asleep, M7 reduces network pinging to spare your battery.
Iphone 5s has crystaline diamond edges which shine under the light and looks attractive. On the back we have aluminium with ceramic glass at the top and bottom same material that used on mac books by Apple. Apple has also upgraded their Iphone home button with Finger Print Sensor that allows users to lock and unlock their phone by reading their thumb impression. Moreover, on the back of Iphone 5s Apple has inserted dual led flash to make a good use of 8 mega pixel camera in low light condition. Despite the fact, Iphone 5s have new features in it with new A7 and M7 chip it is similar to the measurements of Iphone 5 and measures 123.8 x 58.6 x 7.6mm and only weighs 112 grams.
Iphone 5s is integrated with IOS 7 with iOS 7 takes full advantage of the advanced technologies built into iPhone — including the 64-bit A7 chip and Touch ID. And it introduces great new features like smarter multitasking, AirDrop and Control Centre.
Iphone 5s comes up in 3 variants 16GB, 32GB and 64GB to save more contents on your phone.
The Iphone 5s packs 4G LTE connectivity with Bluetooth, Wifi, GPS, AGPS, Wifi Tethering and packs all other connectivity options that we have on Iphone 5.
Apple has tipped up 12 percent battery on Iphone 5s as compared to its predeccessors which means now we have 1570 mAh battery as compared to 1440 mAh battery on Iphone 5.
Iphone 5s has 8 mega pixel camera but with Larger sensor, larger pixels, larger aperture. Light is a key factor in getting a great photo and thats why Iphone 5s equipped with Dual LED flash instead of singe LED Flash on Iphone . The new iSight has a 15 per cent larger sensor which takes bigger pixels photos, measuring 1.5 microns and an aperture of ƒ/2.2.
To give my final verdict we are going to use a SWOT analysis below
Iphone 5s packs a powerful A7 Chip which consist best Graphic Processing Unit that you find in a mobile until now. It has also got elegant design wih Finger Print Sensor with improved camera pixels resolution
One of the weaknesses I have found in Iphone 5s is its display which seems to me out dated as compared to other 1080p devices like S4 and Htc One. Camera is also a disappointment for some people as users were expecting 13 mega pixel camera instead of 8 mega pixel camera on Iphone 5s.
The biggest threat to Iphone 5s is Sony Ultra Z, Note 3, LG G2, S4 and many more because all of them have 1080p display plus they have powerful Snapdragon processors on them.
