Expert Review

The iPhone 5S is the oldest smartphone Apple is now offering for sale it’s also the smallest. While small might seem like a negative, there’s many people who’ve questioned the trend toward larger phones. With a four inch screen size, the iPhone 5S is a very pocketable but there’s no getting around the fact it’s an older phone. That being said, the phone features two of the more important features that Apple’s incorporated as important in its more recent phones: Touch ID, a biometric sensor to allow access to one’s phone with a fingerprint, and a 64-bit processor. It should be noted the 5S does not allow for Apple Pay transactions, as it lacks a near-field-communications chip.

The 5S uses the same 8 megapixel camera that its successor, the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus use; a search on photo sharing sites will show that the stills captured by iPhones with 8 megapixel sensors are some of the most popular in terms of their visual quality. Storage for those images and videos, in addition to any other data, is limited to 16 or 32GB. Users with larger libraries need to look elsewhere. The device’s WIFI radios can receive 802.11a/b/g/n signals, but not the newer ac standard. Cellular networking is through LTE.Rating: 4.25/5
