Although he screen may not be as big as some other phones like the galaxy and you may not be able to do some weird droid things and features the iphone has always been a genuinely real and top notch product in the line of electronics and smart phones. One of the greatest things about the iphone in general in my opinion is the simple fact that it has access to the apple App Store. This app store cannot compare to any other because it blows them all away like they say "there's an app for that." Also the iphone is sleek and good looking, there are many great cases for it to suit any users needs, the overall feel of iOS 7 I stunning and beautiful, and the speed of the product is absolutely amazing. In comparison to older models the iphone 5s is superior in that it has a finger print scanner which I find to be a very helpful feature, it has an enhanced processor, and a more precise camera.

Battery Life
I have never had a problem with the battery life of my phone yet although I have only had it for a month or so. I will keep this updated if I do, but I don't think I will. :)

Display/Screen Quality
iOS 7 is very beautiful in color and brightness. The overall quality of the screen of all apple devices is definitely a key quality of the phone.

Call Quality
Both the microphone and the speakers of the phone meet my standards for a typical function of any phone.

Ease of Use
In my opinion apple does a great job with ease and friendliness to its users on every one of their devices.

Durability
I have not dropped my phone yet and I hope I never do

Design
The bezel of the iphone is sleek and beautifully made. It is very impressive.

I upgraded from my iPhone 4 to the iPhone 5s. Honestly I do not see that much of a difference from my iPhone 4. If I wasn't eligible for an upgrade from the cell phone company, I probably would have not invested in a new iPhone. It is a great iPhone, it is just very similar to previous models.

The iPhone 5s does have a bigger screen and feels more lightweight. I now have the 4G network and the phone does run faster. The camera is VERY nice and better quality. You cannot even tell the pictures were taken with a phone. It has a panoramic feature that was not available on my iPhone 4. The new color designs available for the iPhone 5S are attractive.

One of the most talked about features is the fingerprint scanning for the iPhone 5S. I do like the idea of extra security and like the fact that you can allow multiple fingerprints to open the phone. This means that you can have both thumbs, your index finger, etc fingerprint unlock the phone. However I ended up not liking this feature and thus do not use it. This is because sometimes it just doesn't work and then I have to end up touching the home button multiple times which puts wear and tear on the home button.

Iphones in general have a very easy to use and attractive interface and that has not changed with my iPhone 5s. The same apps and operating systems are available.

If you already have an iPhone 4S or 5, I do not think it is worth getting the iPhone 5S, especially if you are going to have to pay full price.

If you are looking to get an iPhone while the iPhone 5s is nice, an iPhone 5 would be very similar and cheaper.
