    Every new iPhone is the best iPhone ever made each year.

    Then next we will hear the 6s is the biggest upgrade ever then the 7s and so on.

    It's like movie sequels. They always say its the best yet, like they would ever say its not as good as the last movie but please watch it anyways.

    How can it not be? They should all be increasingly better. If they were not, I would suggest a serious issue.

    Just finished reading it. I agree with it, a worthy upgrade for older gen phones but probably not from an iPhone 5. I will be going from a 5 to 5S but only because my kid is ready for a phone and until she can pay for it she will be getting hand me downs. Glad to see a speed boost even without 64bit compiled applications.

    They don't need to win it. They've got plenty of hangers on that know if they promote Apple they'll benefit.

    I see the 5s is getting praised by multiple sites. Can't wait.

    I can't lie I used to be an apple hater but I still always had those "it probably is one of the best smartphones" moments lol. Now I am just really into it. I know there may be something better if you like screen size or a brick phone but I prefer simple things not giant notepads on my face. ijs

    I may be missing out on this fingerprint sensor by going with the 5C... I will likely head to an Apple Store on Friday evening just to check the sensor out if possible

    I think, given the price drop, this isn't really unexpected. Usually, Apple would drop the price of the previous year's model...this year they have given a few updated internals, changed the casing to appeal to a younger/more price-conscious demographic, and lowered the price. I think it's a smart move. The iPhone 5 is/was a fantastic phone! Bringing that power and capability at a lower price-point will likely help drive sales.

    Not too impressed with the 5S, either.

    Only Apple brings in enough traffic, there's nothing else to write about tbh.

    1. It's engadget. They are more Apple fanboys than the people on this site :) (take it easy, I smiled didn't I?)

    2. It's... the successor to the previous iPhone. If it wasn't the BEST iPhone, well, what would the point be?

    Not bad at all and I love the gif lol. Some "TO SMART KNOW IT ALL" is of course going to come into the thread with their great remarks on how it is not that great. Why can't we all be cheerful man :p
