iPhone 5s pitted against iPhone 5 in stunning camera showdown

It might be more than a year old now, but Apple’s iPhone 5 still has one of the most impressive cameras that has ever been included on a cell phone. In terms of color reproduction and clarity, the iPhone 5 pushed mobile photography to a whole new level. With the iPhone 5s, however, Apple claimed that it made its 8-megapixel camera even more impressive. Early tests suggested that there are indeed some noticeable improvements. But we still hadn’t seen a thorough review from a well-respected photographer comparing the iPhone 5s camera to the one on the iPhone 5 — until now. More →

Apple’s new iPhone portfolio and pricing

Apple is hosting its annual iPhone launch event tonight at its Cupertino, California headquarter. Tonight's event is special in more ways than one. This could possibly be the first time that Apple would launch two new iPhone models instead of the customary one. It will also mark the new iOS 7 platform, which is also the first time Apple has overhauled the platform since its introduction in 2007. Lot is at stake for Apple as its Android rivals, particularly Samsung at the higher end and Asian OEMs in the lower end, dominating the smartphone space. We have had enough leaks in the past few months that we can confidently reckon that Apple would announce two new iPhones. These have been leaked as the iPhone 5S and the iPhone 5C. However, there are a few things that we still don't know that will make a huge difference for both users and Apple. The most critical one would be the pricing of the low-cost iPhone 5C. More →

Threatened by the Samsung Galaxy S 4, Apple explains why the iPhone 5 is still the best

Over the last few years Samsung’s Galaxy line of products have become viable competitors to Apple’s iPhone. The Galaxy S III became the bestselling Android smartphone of all time, but the iPhone 5 swooped and still managed to come out on top. But Apple recognizes the threat the new Galaxy S 4 poses especially with Samsung's marketing blitzkrieg but also because Apple will not be refreshing its iPhone anytime soon. More →
