One year after using of HTC Window Phone, the initial joy slowly faded. When daily use of the phone, the simplicity of iPhone (the correct placing of that functions, access etc was just right!!!) while compared to Window Phone is just not there. The main complaints I must say are the Contact and Receiving Call function (and notifications).
Anyway, back to iPhone 5S. Nothing too excited about the new iPhone, as have been using the iOS7 on my iPad 3. However, the Touch ID is really good (a pity the new iPad mini Retina did not come with it).
BUILT WISE : Excellent (As usual)
LOOKS : Simple and Classy
FUNCTIONS : iOS 7 looks better in iPhone that on iPad
VIDEO : Nice but cannot compare to bigger screen size handphone
PHOTO : No complaints, iOS7 made it better for viewing (plus free iPhoto)
CAMERA : For me, it is very good!
OS : iOS 7 really made it feel better, work better but without changing too much the familiarity of the iOS which people are use to it. (The old saying “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” holds truth)
BATTERY : Approx. 36 hrs
PROS : Touch ID, iOS7
CONS : Only one small issue, some website auto direct me to App Store
CONCLUSION : A happy iPhone user.
IMPORTANT : DO NOT UPGRADE TO OS X MAVERICKS AND ITUNE 11, AS APPLE REMOVE THE CONTACT/CALENDER SYNC FUNCTION IN ITUNE. (MEANING YOU CAN ONLY SYNC THRU ICLOUD) – ONE WORD F***
Get around – I export a copy of vcard and upload to my NAS and download to my iPad and iPhone!
