Apple iPhone 5s vs. LG G2 vs. Nokia Lumia 1020: War of the worlds

 

You know what they say - three is a crowd. On a second thought though, no one here's got romance on their mind. The three-horse race has had its highs and lows, but it's the playoffs and we got a front-row seat. It's not about heroes and villains...

iPhone 5s review

 

The iPhone 5s is an evolution of the iPhone 5, and isn't necessarily a must-have. It ushers in new technologies that will soon be standard on all of Apple's devices. While most consumers will be happy with the 5c, the 5s is better-suited for gamers and...

A7 chip offers fast performance and 64-bit support ; Touch ID works as advertised ; Global LTE support ; Improved camera

Last year's design ; Touch ID needs third-party support

Is the 5s the best iPhone ever made? Yes, though that shouldn't come as a surprise. Apple took a good product and made it better through hardware upgrades, new features and completely revamped software. In what would otherwise be considered a mundane...

Apple iOS 7 beta review: Evening the odds

 

The last couple of iOS updates were hanging on the wrong side between too little and too late. The user interface is six years old now and while it has been repeatedly polished in every revision so far, it was decidedly starting to look stale. And it's...

iPhone 5S review: Same look, small screen, big potential

 

Apple's newest flagship smartphone is its most advanced iPhone yet, but many of its most promising features are buried under the hood.

The ; delivers an improved camera, a nifty fingerprint sensor, and a next-gen CPU and motion-tracking chip. Apple throws in the iWork app suite for free. iOS 7 adds some nice step-ups, too, including AirDrop file transfers and the Android-like Control...

External design is identical to that of the iPhone 5, including a 4-inch screen that looks downright tiny next to Android competitors. For now, the fingerprint sensor only works with Apple apps. The 64-bit A7 processor and M7 motion-tracking chip don't...

The iPhone 5S is not a required upgrade, but it's easily the fastest and most advanced Apple smartphone to date.

The Right Touch

 

I pull my iPhone out of my pocket, tap the home button, and let my thumb linger an extra second longer than I normally would have. The lock screen fades away and the iOS 7 home screen zooms into view, each icon landing neatly on the display. It's an...

Apple iPhone 5s (Verizon Wireless)

 

The iPhone 5s may be small, but it's packed with more power than any other smartphone on the market today. It's the best bet for anyone who wants a future-proof, forward-looking phone that runs an unbeatable array of apps.

Incredibly fast processor. Excellent camera. Easy-to-use Touch ID fingerprint sensor. Unmatched app selection.

Small screen for an industry-leading smartphone.

We're currently testing battery life, but so far, it looks to be similar to the iPhone 5's talk time at just about 10 hours. That's shorter than leading Android-powered smartphones like the Samsung Galaxy S4, but the iPhone 5 has a smaller screen,...

Apple iPhone 5S review

 

Editors' note (March 21, 2016): Apple has discontinued the 2013 iPhone 5S reviewed here, and replaced it with the iPhone SE . The new model is basically a 5S body with the innards of the late 2015 iPhone 6S .

The iPhone 5S delivers an improved camera, a nifty fingerprint sensor, and a next-gen CPU and motion-tracking chip. Apple throws in the iWork app suite for free. iOS 7 adds some nice step-ups, too, including AirDrop file transfers and the Android-like...

iPhone 5S review

 

Apple has entered the spec wars.

Beautiful design ; Super fast processor ; Fantastic camera

4-inch phones are starting to feel small ; iOS is far from perfect

Small tweaks add up to big changes

The iPhone 5s Review

 

For much of the iPhone's life Apple has enjoyed a first-mover advantage. At the launch of the first iPhone, Steve Jobs expected the device and OS would give it a multi-year head start over the competition. Indeed that's how the market played out....

At the end of the day, if you prefer iOS for your smartphone - the iPhone 5s won't disappoint. In many ways it's an evolutionary improvement over the iPhone 5, but in others it is a significant step forward. What Apple's silicon teams have been doing...
