Bangalore: Even though iPhone5S boasts about its unmatchable specs and features, a close observation on the gadget reveals that only a minor upgradation has been made from its predecessors. The incorporated finger print recognition technology and faster processor, do not provide much excitement to certain users. Here are some disappointing things about Apple’s flagship model iPhone5S, as compiled by Cnet.

#1 Screen

In the growing trend of mobile phones with larger screen size, Apple clinging onto the same screen dimension does not seem appealing to most of the customers. iPhone 5 had a 4-inch screen which remains the same in Iphone5S as well. Even though customers are not looking forward for an iPhablet, the screen must be large enough for better viewing atleast considering the aged users the users who want a proper entertainment device.

#2 Processor  

The manufactures who flaunted the 64-bit desktop architecture processor incorporated into iPhone5S, however, do not reveal the fact that it will consume more power. The fast processor only helps in accelerating certain games and apps and is not in much use for general applications. Apple’s launching presentation spoke about the technological features of the A7 chips used in the phone but did not say how it benefits the users.

3: I do not know whether the editor actually watched the keynote session. Also, I do not understand why Silicon India articles are always about criticizing Apple and its products. Nowadays even other big players never cared about expandable memory. Even samsung and google does it. As Steve Jobs mentioned in one of his conferences in All things D "Do you think smartphones are new? They were available much earlier than the first iPhone. Microsoft had it. But all they tried was port desktop version of OS into a phone". Apple created a first phone with an OS exclusively for Phone. Same with tablets. Apple was nowhere in the phone market before 2007. But, now in smartphones they are pioneers. Players like Noka, Blackberry did not recogonize the potential of smartphones as Apple did further copied by Samsung.

4: Agreed to the last point as its not a big thing and Motorola introduced the finger print sensor quite a time ago when they launched first Atrix around 2010-11.

5: About the screen thing, I would not say its a disappointment as there are a lot of people who like to keep a difference between between a phone and a so called tablet sized phones, and its just the limited amount of options (for both android and windows) of a high performance pocketable devices that is forcing people to move to those tablet sized phones. But if they can introduce both a small and a large screen device side by side, then great!!
And for the 64 bit processors its just a matter of time that other manufacturers also start using them, infact samsung already announced the same just after the new iphone's announcement.
