    iPhone 5S

    I saw that there was an android topic but nothing for the new iPhone. I've always been an iPhone guy but I have to wait for my carrier (nTelos) to get the 5S before I do. Anyone else already have or planning on getting the 5S?

    iPhone 5S

    I have been an Android person, but I am giving some thought to an iPhone 5C or iPhone 5S. I have been reading some forums about this and I might be inclined to just buy the Verizon (CDMA) A1533 iPhone 5S (or 5C) as "Device Only" from an Apple Retail Store, since it is is fully carrier unlocked, and would work with ALL of the major carriers in the United States.

    I have the 4s. When it is time to upgrade I may go for the 5s

    Good luck figuring out which color iPhone matches your desperate need for attention.



    Seriously though, after several models of iPhones playing catch up to Android it's great seeing some innovation. The 64 bit architecture and biometric security (Android's face unlock is a gimmick) is going to start showing up with other phones now and that's fantastic. Good job Apple raising the bar for everyone this time!

    Everybody wants gold so people know that they have the latest and greatest!!

    In all seriousness I'm really happy about the biometric lock. I did read somewhere though where they found a flaw. If your a heavy sleeper someone could just put your own finger on your phone and have full access. Good thing I'm happily married and plan on my wife having access anyway. :-)

    Somebody will make an app that you can put the phone in sleep mode and can only unlock it with a password or something.

    Counterproductive but your right. I would like to see different access levels determined on who unlocked the phone. I can see that being an awesome feature since my 13 month old can almost get it unlocked on his own now.
