Apple still has a lot of bugs to fix, lots of optimizations to do, fixes are needed for the blue screen of death and battery drain problems to name a few.

The Apple iPhone was the pioneer of high quality highly capacitive touch screens, screen which made their competitors look like sluggish snails. In fact even quite recently in a screen touch latency benchmark Apple’s iPhones did quite well. Shockingly however, they failed miserably in this test.
Apple’s iPhone 5s and 5c Fail Accuracy Benchmarks – Galaxy III Passes with Flying Colors
The benchmark was conducted by measuring the accuracy of the sensors. OptoFidelity had put smartphone touchscreens to a test by a robotic hand that basically poked the display and then compared what the phone actually registered.

Over the last couple of years in the mobile business, Apple has held its ground ground with just one weapon in its arsenal. When the iPhone was released, it was a formidable product with something new to it. Well, Apple has done it again with its next generation of the iPhone, namely the iPhone 5s.
Here’s Why the iPhone 5s is a better buy than Galaxy S4
Most people will disagree that the new product brings something out of the ordinary. In our opinion, It heralds the dawn of a new horizon.
- The new Apple A7 Chipset ticking inside the 5s brings with it the newer 8th version of ARM’s instruction set, With this comes 64bit computing allowing 4gb+ ram to be addressed and utilized although the iOS does its job with just 1GB. With the new instruction set comes sheer power which apple has put to good use.
- The graphic area is covered by the PowerVR G6430, which again is the latest in the market. Ironically this whole soc is manufactured by Apple’s arch-rival Samsung .
- The S4 on the other hand utilizes the older ARM v7 instruction set via its cortex A15/Krait 300/Krait 400. It is saddening to see the abysmal performance 4 cores have against just 2.
