Engadget Review

iPhone 5s review

The iPhone 5s is an evolution of the iPhone 5, and isn't necessarily a must-have. It ushers in new technologies that will soon be standard on all of Apple's devices. While most consumers will be happy with the 5c, the 5s is better-suited for gamers and power users.

Pros
  • A7 chip offers fast performance and 64-bit support
  • Touch ID works as advertised
  • Global LTE support
  • Improved camera
Cons
  • Last year's design
  • Touch ID needs third-party support
