    Looks good so far.

    64bit A7 processor
    64bit iOS7
    56 x faster than the original iPhone

    "The A7 is a modern instruction set, with 2x general purpose registers, 2x floating point registers, over 1 billion transistors and 100 square mm die size."

    Battery
    -10 hours 3G talk time, 250 hours standby
    -10 hours LTE browsing, 40 hours music playback

    Camera
    -The new camera has a 5-element Apple designed lens with f/2.2 aperture
    -15 percent larger active sensor area
    -True Tone Flash solves the problem of clashing color temperatures. There are over 1,000 unique variations.
    -Slo-mo is supported as well; 720p @ 120 fps

    Security
    - Passcodes are the most popular way. "Unfortunately, some people find that too cumbersome and don't set it up. About half of smartphone customers don't set up a passcode on their device, and they really should."
    - Touch ID is now official on the 5S! (Saphire Crystal Home button)
    - The sensor is 170 microns thin, 500 ppi resolution, scans sub-epidermal skin layers and has 360-degree readability
    - The sensor is built right into the home button! (thats not going anywhere)
    - Around it is the stainless steel detection ring, so it can detect that your finger is actually on the button, so you don't have to press it.
    - "Touch ID has been built deeply into iOS 7."
    - "Since it's built in, you can make itunes purchases by using your finger to authenticate."
    - "It's not just rampant tech for tech's sake. Every component and process has been considered and measured to make sure it's truly useful and enhances the user experience."
    - Setting it up is easy, and can read multiple fingerprints
    -It's never stored on Apple servers or backed up to iCloud.
    -

    16GB $199, 32GB is $299 and 64GB is $399 on contract

    So, yeah it looks the same but is blazingly fast, has the newest camera tech (iOS7 has some great new camera features), good security and a new OS to accompany.

    Pre-Order the 13th, In stores 20th Sept. iOS available the 18th.

    Also, don't forget that the entire iLife suite of apps is now free with a new device. Pages, Numbers, Keynote, iPhoto, iMovie. Expect to see some new commercials showing what can be done on the iPhone that can't be done on the other devices.

    Good luck marketing that to the average iOS user...

    Probably why they threw in the snazzy color-matching home button ring... lol

    Oooo look, shiny!!!

    Does that include a trolley for the external battery. Seriously I would be interested to see how well the battery is managed.

    They'll still save FAR more time cumulatively by never having to enter passcodes to unlock their device than you paying via NFC.

    Pretty solid upgrade, IMHO.

    NFC, no one f****** cares. To paraphrase Jony Ive "It's just rampant tech for tech's sake". It'll probably actually become useful if Apple ever do support it though. I don't expect any retailers to adopt it until then.

    And no NFC.

    Why do you need to remove the battery if your phone freezes when you can easily do it with the press of a button??? Also, you fail to see the convenience and benefit of replacing a battery if 1) you're travelling and can't charge and 2) the battery can no longer hold a charge

    I don't know where you live but in Canada, NFC payments are live and very convenient. Plus, it's great using it for file transfers, adding BBM contacts, etc.

    Wow lol, nfc is nothing now, it's funny how people minds work towards apple,

    IPhone is missing a basic ft every
    One else has, that means it's useless....soon as apple gets it "freaking innovative, amazing etc."

    Nothing amazing about these 2 phones really, u realize how apple always compare their new products to their old products and most the time never other products...think about why

    56x faster than the first iPhone? Now why would u compare it to the first ever iPhone? Why not against phones that's in the market now? To me that's because they know their users adopt anything apple throws at them, no questions asked
