Apple iPhone 5s is a fascinating iOS cellphone launched in 2013, which counts with a 4" multi touch screen, a great 64 bit Dual-Core CPU running at 1300 megahertz, and 2 cameras, an 8 megapixels back facing camera and a 1.2 MP front-facing camera.
This phone is sold in 3 different color options, black, gray and gold. The iPhone 5s isn't very light comparing to other phones , weighting 3.95 oz. The iPhone 5s is extremely slim and practical, being just 0.3 inches thick. Talking about its construction quality, this cellphone is majorly created with Aluminium, giving it a quality look and a better resistance.
Apple sells this device with a Apple A7 chip, holding a very fast 64-bit Dual-Core processing unit ticking at 1.3 GHz with only 1 GB RAM which is a bit poor for a phone this powerful. Graphic rendering usually consume lots of processor cycles, so it also uses a PowerVR G6430 graphic processing unit ticking at 600 MHz to help the processor with those tasks. A good point of this phone is its inmense 32 GB internal memory and while it doesn't come with an SD extension slot, it is still enough to install lots of applications, games, songs, photos and videos without even thinking about running out of space.
Apple equipped this cellphone with an amazing 4" display, and a 1136 x 640 resolution, making everything look amazing. This display uses IPS LCD capacitive technology, with a vivid 500 cd/m2 brightness and is multi-touch enabled.
This phone features two cameras, an 8 megapixels back side camera and a 1.2 MP front camera. this cellphone's back side camera lens has a maximum F2.2 aperture so it can shoot beautiful pictures even in low-light conditions. It also films videos in 1920x1080 (Full HD) at 30 fps, and 1280x720 HD slow motion videos up to 120 fps (4 times slower than regular videos). This camera also includes many cool characteristics like auto-focus, flash, digital image stabilization, fast burst mode, face detection shooting, time lapse video, HDR mode and geo tagging.
This phone has a medium 1570 mAh Li-Ion non-removable battery providing this device with a quite short battery life. Apple informs a stand by time of 250 hs and a talk time of 10 hs for this phone. A key issue to take into consideration is that this cellphone's battery is non-removable so you can't change it when it starts to have trouble holding its charge, having to change the whole phone.
The Apple iPhone 5s features WiFi connection (and it can be shared with other devices acting as a wireless router or modem), LTE (4G) fast connection type and also HSPA+ data connection, that is a lower speed 4G network or the fastest 3G connectivity, using HSDPA, HSUPA, UMTS and EDGE technologies. This cellphone uses a Nano SIM card for GSM connection and it can use both CDMA and GSM carriers.
This phone also comes with some interesting features like Bluetooth (for communication with other bluetooth devices and accessories), GPS Navigation and NFC (to trigger actions, transfer data or make payments by holding your phone close to another NFC device or tag), and multiple sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope and Compass.
This phone costs only 229 dollars, a great offer for an impressive device like this. No matter if you will use it mostly for social networks, need this phone for work, want a gamer phone or you love taking photographs, you will definitely be very pleased with this device. The Apple iPhone 5s sells with Apple EarPods with Remote and Mic, Lightning to USB Cable, Documentation and USB Power Adapter.
