iPhone 5S 64GB

4.4
Verdict: In many ways, the iPhone 5s is identical in build and appearance to the iPhone 5. It has the same sized 4-inch screen, and is identical in size, shape and weight as the iPhone 5. Because of this, the phone feels really slim and light in your hand, and has a premium feel that you just don't get with...

iPhone 5S

3.5
Verdict: Phone 5S is a solid upgrade of the iPhone 5 with improved speed, camera and innovative fingerprint technology. It is premium and we expect it to be quite expensive. Will people want to pay a lot of money to hold the newest top end iPhone and stay in the easy Apple ecosystem?
Pros: fingerprint technology, video camera at 120 frames per second
Cons: expensive, screen resolution could be better

Apple iPhone 5s (Verizon)

4.2
Verdict: One of the features that's been lacking when it comes to teen phones (which arguably should be one of the most important) is security. Teens tend to lose things and since smartphones now contain a large part of someone's life, ensuring a mobile device can be properly locked down is very important.

iPhone 5S 64GB

No reviews
Verdict: Apple calls the iPhone 5s, the most forward thinking iPhone yet. A departure from when Apple didn't care to enter the spec wars, it claims to be the best smartphone in the world.
Pros: 64 bit A7 processor + M7 coprocessor, Touch ID, Camera
Cons: Price, Small screen & design is getting dated

Pros: Stunning design, Great performance, Touch ID Fingerprint sensor, Top camera, iOS 7 has a great visual design and excellent features
Cons: Similar appearance to iPhone 5, 4inch Retina display can seem small, No NFC support, No microSD support, Expensive, especially if you want larger capacity models

iPhone 5s review

5.0
Verdict: Adding an S to the previous year's new-shape iPhone is a pattern we've seen before, ever since the iPhone 3G turned 3GS in 2009. And once again in 2013 Apple evolved its existing iPhone platform, only this time the iPhone 5 split into two – a new flagship 5s and a more playful iPhone 5c in a range...
Pros: Fingerprint sensor, Two Tone camera flash, Slow-mo video, Faster than iPhone 5, Works with all 4G networks, Future-proof 64-bit chip, M7 chip
Cons: More expensive than the iPhone 5 was, Screen is small when compared to other high-end phones

Apple iPhone 5s Review

4.0
Verdict: Per usual with these "S" revisions, the iPhone 5s is an overall improvement over an already great smartphone. But with fierce competition from the HTC One, Samsung Galaxy S4, and the Nokia 1020, the iPhone is a tough sell to those looking for a bigger screen, flexible operating system, and a new...
Pros: Touch ID is very well executed, Impressive camera, Excellent performance, Still the easiest smartphone to use
Cons: No real design upgrade, Still waiting for a bigger screen, iOS7 is still playing catch-up, No real improvement to battery life

Apple iPhone 5s review

4.5

Pros: Touch ID is genuinely useful, Improved low light camera performance, Excellent performance
Cons: Average battery life, Same sized 4in screen, Touch ID needs more support

Apple's best yet: iPhone 5S reviewed

4.5
Verdict: The new iPhone is here, and while it doesn't come with a brand new number, it does manage to sneak in a few new features that aim to make it the best iPhone yet.
Pros: Still the same lovely design as before, Performs very well, Fingerprint scanner is great for unlocking the phone and buying apps, 4G connection is very fast, Feels great in the hand
Cons: No NFC, No 802.11ac, True Tone flash is versatile, but doesn't dampen flash colour as much you expect

Review: With the iPhone 5S, Apple lays groundwork for a brighter future

No reviews
Verdict: Every year since 2008, Apple has released new flagship iPhones in a predictable cadence: on even years we get a new external design; on odd years we get a refinement of the previous year's design with upgraded insides and new hardware features.
Pros: The iPhone 5 design is still sturdy and attractive, and "space gray" should hold up better to scuffs than last year's black model, Excellent performance, Good camera with improved low-light performance, though in low light especially some Lumia phones can best it, Lovely screen, even if some others...
Cons: The fingerprint sensor is imperfect as a standalone authentication tool, and Apple doesn't (yet?) support two-factor authentication, Dual-band 802.11n and 100Mbps LTE aren't bad at all in the here-and-now, but they might be feeling a little dated by the time your two-year contract is up, Developers...

iPhone 5s Review: Apple's Latest Smartphone Goes For (And Gets) The Gold

No reviews
Verdict: Apple's new iPhone 5s is set to go on sale this Friday, Sept. 20, and the phone is already generating a lot of buzz. The 5s is the more advanced of two new Apple iPhones, and offers a lot of technical advantages over the iPhone 5c also launching the same day.
Pros: Fingerprint scanner is intuitive/more convenient than passcode, Big performance boost vs.
Cons: Flash photography can't be saved by dual-LEDs, Premium price

iPhone 5S

4.5
Verdict: As we've come to expect from Apple's S-range, the iPhone 5S represents a subtle enhancement of the previous model. However, it's considerably more powerful than the iPhone 5, Touch ID is a genuinely worthwhile addition, and that compact design remains one of the best around.

Review: Apple iPhone 5s vs 5c

3.8
Verdict: Apple stepped out of its comfort zone when it launched the 5c alongside the 5s in September. It was the first time the company had debuted more than one smartphone at an event, putting iPhone owners in a quandary.
5 years ago
 

iPhone 5S 64GB

4.0
Verdict: People will criticize that the new iPhone 5S is not as innovative as it should be, but still we will recommend you to purchase. The best thing about the new phone is that it is upgraded and comes with a lot of applications which are missing in the previous version.
Pros: Powerful Core, Excellent Camera, Screen touch ID is amazing
Cons: Battery suspect, No screen touch change, Expensive

iPhone 5S review

4.0
Verdict: The iPhone 5S is another winner from Apple, with its Touch ID fingerprint scanner for security, improved camera features and in-built motion coprocessor. However, those impressed by the current crop of large-screen smartphones or looking for an overhaul of the Apple smartphone rather than a few...
Pros: Touch ID fingerprint scanner, improved camera features, M7 coprocessor
Cons: Expensive, similar to previous iPhones

iPhone 5s Review

No reviews
Verdict: We've come to expect evolution not revolution from the "S" update to Apple's iPhone range, but the iPhone 5s could be enough to buck that trend. Inside the familiar metal casing beats a new processor, the Apple A7, making the iPhone 5s the first smartphone – and iOS 7 the first smartphone platform –...

Not my cup of tea.

5.0
Verdict: I received this due to my work phone being upgraded, which was an old Nokia. I have dabbled in using windows phone and android phones also. The parts of the phone that I like are the touchid system, I never bother using a pin on my personal phone, but having the fingerprint reader is a nice touch...

Apple iPhone 5s review

4.5
Verdict: Another year, another iPhone. Apple's mid-cycle "S" update has brought us the iPhone 5s. It retains an identical, physical design to the iPhone 5 but introduces a useful biometric fingerprint sensor, has a faster, 64-bit A7 processor and takes better photos than its predecessor, particularly in low...
Pros: Touch ID is genuinely useful, Improved low light camera performance, Excellent performance
Cons: Average battery life, Same sized 4in screen, Touch ID needs more support

Apple iPhone 5s: Serious upgrade

4.5
Verdict: Apple's pattern of iteration isn't smooth when it comes to the iPhone . It bumps along: a new case design one year, more subtle advancements the next. The iPhone 5s is, as the name implies, a phone that doesn't look much different from last year's iPhone 5.
Pros: Touch ID fingerprint sensor; camera flash adjusts to ambient light temperature; big speed improvement over iPhone 5
Cons: Screen still feels small next to other high-end phones

Step by step

No reviews
Verdict: It's that time of year again and Apple's in the usual record-breaking mood at the box-office. This is an S year in the Cupertino calendar but different enough - it may be that two phones instead of one account for almost double last year's record sales.

iPhone 5S 64GB

No reviews
Verdict: On the 10th of September Apple execs took to the stage, at the company's headquarters in Cupertino, and showed off three new things. The first was iOS 7 – a revamp of the company's mobile operating system for the iPad, iPod touch, and iPhone.

iPhone 5s

4.5
Verdict: I confess that I use Android smartphones more than the iPhone, but every year when a new iPhone comes out, I get giddy with excitement. There is a simple magic to iOS devices, with a bevy of complex engineering, brilliant software design and killer marketing behind that simplicity.
Pros: Still stunning looking, great quality, sharp and colorful display, excellent camera, a fingerprint scanner that's actually easy to use
Cons: A 4" display on a flagship smartphone in 2013 seems so old fashioned

Apple iPhone 5s (16GB/32GB/64GB)

5.0
Verdict: Although the iPhone 5s superficially appears to be a modest upgrade from last year's iPhone 5, the truth is somewhat more complicated. The typical iPhone 5 user will find little to no real reason to consider buying an iPhone 5s, as Apple this year has made the individual upgrades seemingly trivial...
Pros: An improved sequel to the iPhone 5, which was Apple's best iPhone to date. Retains the same 4" screen, LTE cellular support, and form factor, while offering three chassis color options and adding a fingerprint sensor.
Cons: Despite a larger battery, real-world battery performance too often falls below Apple's best case estimates, with potentially major problems in cellular calling talk time, and similar drain with cellular data.

iPhone 5s review

5.0
Verdict: A great phone and a deceptively big step forward for Apple, but the iPhone 5s doesn't leap quite as far as we had hoped
Pros: iOS lives up to the hype, Truly beautifully hardware, An unbeatable App Store
Cons: Screen feels increasingly small, Lacks the liveliness of Android, Currently few ways to use the extra grunt

iPhone 5S review

4.4
Verdict: The iPhone 5S isn't just supposed to be "the most amazing iPhone yet." It's not "the thinnest and lightest iPhone ever." No, Apple says the 5S is "the most forward-thinking iPhone yet" and "the best smartphone in the world."
Pros: Beautiful design, Super fast processor, Fantastic camera
Cons: 4-inch phones are starting to feel small, iOS is far from perfect

Review Apple iPhone 5S Smartphone

4.4
Verdict: The Apple iPhone 5s is a successful refresh of the iPhone 5 . In terms of design, it has remained largely unaltered, with the exception of the Touch ID fingerprint sensor, which is not obligatory but can be a useful and reliable addition to the overall smartphone experience.
Pros: Great performance, 64-bit architecture, Bright, colorful, naturally looking Retina display, Long battery life, Superb build quality, premium materials, Good EarPods (included, Surprisingly precise GPS module, Low emission and power consumption levels, The superb build quality and the premium...
Cons: Poor black levels, poor contrast ratio, Resolution could be better, screen size could be larger, Non-extendable internal storage, Expensive, As always, a micro SD slot and an HDMI port (the latter can only be had via an expensive adapter). An improved display resolution

Apple iPhone 5S review

4.0
Verdict: The iPhone 5S is no longer part of Apple's smartphone lineup. That's now comprised of the iPhone 6 , 6 Plus, iPhone 6S and 6S Plus. Effectively the iPhone 5S has been replaced by the new iPhone SE, reviewed (and shown in the video above).

Verdict: Having used the phone for a few months now I have to admit that buying the iPhone 5S was a gamble at first (after all it is expensive), but one that I am glad to have done.

iPhone 5s review

4.0
Verdict: Apple introduces Touch ID and beefs up the internal specs of the iPhone, but the fundamental design of its predecessor is retained. The 5s is one of the best performing handsets on the market, but is not the best value.
Pros: Touch ID works, Smooth performance, iOS 7, Great camera
Cons: Fragile chassis, 4in feels cramped at times, Expensive

iPhone 5S 64GB

5.0

Review: Apple iPhone 5s

4.0
Verdict: 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.
Pros: Blazing fast A7 processor. Call quality is excellent, especially using FaceTime Audio. Touch ID feels like the future, and works flawlessly. Vastly improved camera, particularly the slo-mo feature, is enough to warrant an upgrade
Cons: Apple and iOS developers have yet to dream up truly innovative features. Still waiting for Siri to reach her full potential

Apple iPhone 5s (AT&T) Review

4.0
Verdict: Apple is giving Android the finger with the iPhone 5s. And we're not just talking about the fingerprint sensor beneath the screen. The new A7 chip inside this unassuming beast promises to run circles around the Galaxy S4 and other devices.

Review: iPhone 5s

No reviews
Verdict: Over the past week I've been bombarded with questions about the iPhone 5s. What are the new features? Is it worth upgrading to if I already own an iPhone 5? Many are curious about Apple's latest device, but aren't certain if it's worth upgrading to. I've spent the past 7 days using the device.

iPhone 5S

4.5
Verdict: By smartphone standards the iPhone 5S is outright ancient. First released in 2013, with the rumoured approach of Apple's fabled iPhone 6S on the horizon, the iPhone 5S is close to becoming two phone generations old.
Pros: Touch ID works perfectly, Excellent performance, Great all-round camera, Very light and comfortable in one hand
Cons: Battery life could be better, 4-inch screen too small for some, Extra storage cost

Verdict: Look, it's pretty hard not to back Apple on this one from a pure quality and featureset point of view.

iPhone 5S review

5.0
Verdict: While the Android world went big-screen, Apple stuck resolutely to its more pocket-friendly iPhone 5S. It may have been replaced by the larger iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus , but the iPhone 5S is still on sale and is still a good choice for anyone looking for a smaller, cheaper iOS handset.

iPhone 5S 64GB

4.0
Verdict: The basics The Apple iPhone 5s is here at last, ready to stake its claim once again as the greatest smartphone on the planet. Things are a little different this year though - and it's not just because there are bigger and better Android blowers out there.
Pros: The iPhone 5s is a beautiful device - but you already knew this. It always has been, and this year's flagship model is no different. In fact, it's almost identical to the iPhone 5: it's compact, light and polished, and the four-inch Retina Display is vivid and dangerously sharp.
Cons: If you've got an iPhone 5, the 5s will throw few surprises your way. Very few. Too few: it's identically sized, for one thing, so the screen remains as cramped as ever. While plenty of people prefer displays you can reach across with one finger or thumb, it would be nice for Apple to get with the...
