Apple as a Company has been known for it's big domination in Digital world. But will the New Gen IPhone 5s stand up to the Expectations of Users ? Lets it find out.
In First Look, IPhone 5s appears to be very well presented device & the new attractive design speaks for it. With an updation done to its home key, the new IPhone features a Finger Print scanner with a Sapphire Crystal protection. The overall size is still restricted to the tradition 4 -inch screen, but the thickness & weight of the device has certainly been reduced. At the back we are given an 8MP camera with dual tone flash & a slightly thinner IPhone logo at the bottom as compared to the IPhone 5.
But the Major Changes lie at inside of the Device. Talking about Hardware, a new 64-bit Cortex A7 Processor clocked at 1.3 GHz gives it an extra boost in power with 40% less battery consumption. But still these facts & number doesn't impress me very well. If you are an IPhone user you always know Apple does its magic in the Software department.
Software, the new IOS 7.1 really gives a polished looked to the software & certainly improves the user experience with build in utility application that are very easy to access even if the device is still locked. Well, I also found the Auto-brightness very accurate in various light conditions where other phone failed to deliver spontaneous accuracy. Talking about the key updates i still expected Apple to improve its AI i.e. Siri which sometimes interprets false statements & still lacks the finesse of smooth Natural LAnguage Processing(NLP).
What Impresses me with the new IPhone is its ability to do various operations with ease & surely 64-bit processor plays a key role in that.
Finally what disappoints me is its build quality , low impact speakers & the tenderness of screen, which any user won't tolerate at a price tag of Rs.53,500. Surely we want to see the Innovation in electronic devices & it's long lasting ability which i believe none of the companies are planning to do.
Final verdict, i would rate IPhone 5s with improving 3.5 not because of it's performance but for lack of innovation which anyone would expect at a out bursting Price tag.
