The Apple iPhone 5s pushes the smartphone technology envelope

There are many calling the iPhone 5s merely an iterative update to the iPhone 5, in particular, because it continues with the chassis design and display from the now superseded model. To do so is selling the iPhone 5s short, and is probably a flat out fallacy. If the case design had changed, or Apple had shifted to a larger display, it seems some people may have then viewed it as a completely new model. However, the reality is the iPhone 5s really is very much a new model and is truly a next-generation device. So misconceptions aside, the question then is how does it compare in a market flooded with smartphones offering similar capabilities? Read on in our full review to see if the Apple iPhone 5s has what it takes to stand out from the crowd.

    "increase in battery capacity from 1440mAh to 1560mAh"

    Remarkable performance when you realize this is a bit over half the capacity of the best single AA rechargeable cells...

    This damn site gets worse by the month. I get about 40% of the screen I can click without getting some damn popup or ad. Good god, this is ridiculous.
