About This Brand

The iPhones complement their sleek designs and intuitively simple operation with top-notch displays, cameras, and music players. They also provide superb ease of use via a highly interactive multi-touch screen and a customizable icon-driven interface. Newer iPhone models have a fascinating, built-in voice-activated "assistant" called Siri that's fairly good at following complex orders. The newest iPhones, the 5s and 5c, have 4-inch displays and support for fast 4G LTE data networks. The flagship 5s is the first phone we've seen with a 64-bit processor and a fingerprint reader, which is built into the Home button. The 5c models have colorful outer shells.

Comment:
The 64 bit 5s (iOS 7.1) is absolutely wicked <br /><br />92% of the laptops are PCs and they are all but dead due to relentless hacker attacks. Ask a College student what their laptop is and its going to be a super thin OS X Mac Book Air. When combined with their iPhone5s, a Mac Book and the iCloud represent a very powerful tool. My wicked designation is based on productivity and the fact that today's student needs to budget their time or else. Its all about problem solving, research, file sharing and partial on-line classes. Business people are no different. Is their smart phone secure and does it lend itself to productivity. Parents who pay a couple of thousand bucks for a retinia Macbook Pro running Mavericks know exactly what their doing. Same for the iPhone 5s that talks to the MacBook. Its all about cost vs effective value.

Limited ability from Apple. Lots of apps, but cost is higher for music and apps. I have owned three iPhones and all three ended up with broken power button. Doesn't play well syncing with Windows computers.

No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

• This model, and other new iPhone purchases get free iLife App downloads that include: Word Processing, Spreadsheet and Presentation programs (previously $10/each) once the device is registered.<br />• The App store has something for everyone, really - everyone; most Apps are free and many others are $2 or less.<br />• The improvements to Siri and other commonly used interfaces with iOS version 7 enable even better, easier and more intuitive access to most functions.<br />• The YouTube App is a free download, as are many other entertainment, news, social and productivity apps.<br />• The iPhone's battery can be replaced by a skilled user with minimal tools - assuming the owner is willing to assume some risk.<br />• Users seeking a display larger than 4 (myself included) will have to wait for next year's iPhone 6.
