I purchaced an iphone 5s a month ago and I'm troubled about my camera working well.
Here are 2 pictures i taken at 20:00 (half an hour before sun going down , the second is HDR).

I just want to ask if they are ok or if my iphone 5s camera is not working well.
I think that brigtness is a little bit high , but i never had a iphone before to judge.

HDR lifts the shadows so it's working fine. Compared to today's standards, that camera wouldn't even be in the top 20 phone cameras so don't try to compare with anything that came out last year or this year!

I want to compare it with the iphone 5s standards. Just to know if my camera is broken or not.

I don't know jack about photography, but I don't see anything wrong with those photos. Certainly nothing to suggest that your camera is broken. What even made you think that?

The pictures are underexposed because of the bright sky. You need to learn how to adjust exposure by tapping your finger on the screen. Just select a more neutral part of the image until the whites look white. It's always possible to brighten it up afterwards.

My iPhone 6 photos look like shyt too, unless it's taken at the right time at the right moment. Wish I had the iPhone 6S camera MP.

Without a specific concern, no one can answer this for you.

The best way to test any camera is to take it out and shoot a wide variety of subjects, in a wide variety of lighting conditions and distances.
