"Not perfect...but pretty darn close"

This is an excellent device and I feel that it is one of the best phones on the market. This is my second iOS device and prior to that, I was on the Android platform since the HTC Hero.

What I like about this phone is the size, stability of the OS, the quality apps and the excellent service and support from Apple. While it does not have the larger screen of the competition, the 4 inch display is pristine. I actually like that this phone fits comfortably in your hand and pocket.

As for the OS, I am sold on the stability and consistent performance from Apple. While I do miss my widgets, I am sold on having a near-flawless OS that works. For myself, I need a device that works all the time and I have found that with iOS. Honestly, I really do not have time to tweak and play. I need my phone to work when I need it.


Additionally, I feel that the applications outclass those on other platforms. iOS applications are consistent and are built well.

Call quality is amazing, including the speaker phone.

The touch ID is awesome. This is more than a simple upgrade. I found it to be one of my favorite additions to the iPhone family. It works well and make life easier.

The camera is the best in the business. I have taken several photos, both in normal and low light settings. Bare none, this is the best camera for a smartphone. I would say that the Nokia 1020 is nice, but the phone is a brick.

Siri works well, but still not as good as Google Now.

The speed of this phone proves that Apple still has game. Its benchmarks show that it is the fastest phone out.

While I love the keyboard, I miss the swipe capabilities of Android. Aside from that, the iOS keyboard is the best.

The battery life is great. I get a full, power-users, day from this phone.

Lastly, Apple has support that none of the competition can touch. If you purchase the iPhone from the Apple Store, you have a 30 day return policy. If you have issues with the phone, Apple’s support is the absolute best in the business. While Samsung, Nokia, HTC and LG have nice specs and whiz-bang…if you run into issues, you will find that support is near nonexistent.

In short, while the competition has larger screens and more customization features, I would say that the iPhone 5s is the best phone on the market. Its size is perfect and elegant. The build quality is a standard for the industry. When you look at the whole package, Apple is the clear winner. Apple’s support and warranty service set them apart from the flashiness of the competition.

The iPhone 5s will not disappoint.

HTC One (M8) vs iPhone 5s Dogfight


HTC One (M8) vs iPhone 5s...
The new HTC One (M8) has proven itself to be one great device. It’s HTC’s latest flagship and is packed with the latest technology, including a 2.3GHz quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor, 2GB of RAM and a new Duo Camera setup that allows you to refocus a photo after taking it. The One (M8) also has design and build quality on its side, which also happen to be two of the iPhone 5s’ strongpoints. So what happens when you pit these two against one another?
