Best bits? The huge 64GB memory with powerful A7 chip. The 5s 64GB is one fastest, smoothest and most reliable iPhones ever. Integrated apps such as Twitter, Facebook and Instagram are very useful.
The phone runs on iOS 7.0 – which is great for multitasking and quick browsing. It has an 8 megapixel primary rear camera which has seen significant improvements.
The battery has seen a boost too with the introduction of the co-processor. iOS7 appears to lighten the load as well meaning you’re not constantly having to recharge. Good news for power users.
Downsides? It’s expensive so some users might be priced out of the market.
