Am weighing the pros and cons of getting the 5s. Please bear with me as I elaborate my use cases and weigh the pros and cons of getting the latest iPhone. iPhone 4s usage: 1. Regularly used for phone calls / messages 2. Keeping up with my gmail / twitter / feedly / reddit 3. Taking a lot of photos with the great camera 4. Frequently listen to podcasts / music with earphones 5. Logging walks with runkeeper 6. Keep track of documents / notes with dropbox / evernote 7. Rarely read articles / books / reading list 8. Infrequent gaming As you may have guessed most of my reading and gaming in done on my wife's iPad mini. And I'm definitely getting one of the new iPads soon. Last year I skipped on the iPhone 5. However with the 5s and it's slew of new features here are my thoughts: 1. 4" screen would probably be the biggest upgrade I don't do much reading and gaming on the phone 2. A7 performance will be better but the 4s is no slouch in the real world 3. Continuous burst mode, true tone flash and slow-motion are flashy rather than functional 4. M7 could be useful for tracking walks but overkill 5. LTE is non existent and very expensive in my country 6. Touch ID has its hiccups (from what I've heard on twitter) 7. Lightning connector would definitely be a plus 8. Headphone jack on the bottom of the phone is a huge letdown 9. Aluminium back would make for much better durability Still with me? Here are some questions if you own a 5 / 5c / 5s: 1. I'm an avid gamer but the small screen has always been an hindrance. Will the 4" screen on the 5s be considerably better for gaming? 2. Reading articles on feedly / pocket with the larger screen. Drastically better or just barely? 3. Is there any real world difference between 512MB of RAM on the 4s and 1GB on the 5 / 5c / 5s? I haven't mentioned this earlier but the biggest hurdle would probably be that the 32GB iPhone 5s (unlocked) costs a whopping $1000 in my country. If I'm able to justify the price for the features over the 4s then I'll get the 5s. Would love to hear your thoughts. Thanks!
