Editor's Note [Positives]
  • Distinguished, iconic design
  • Incredibly thin and light
  • Great hand fit, because of the slim, and long design
  • Larger (4 inches) Retina Display with well saturated colors, strong brightness output, and superb viewing angles
  • iOS is, as always a pleasure to use, and has an easy learning curve (although many would feel that the visual interface could do with an overhaul - the simplistic icon based interface now looks a bit boring compared to other modern smartphones)
  • Smooth, fluid performance
  • Excellent app ecosystem
  • Great web browser
  • Great camera
  • Superb call quality with noise cancellation
  • Premium build, and classy design
  • Compact in-the-hand feel, easy to use with one hand
  • Touch ID fingerprint scanner provides a useful, convenient way to unlock the phone
  • Beautiful display with incredibly accurate colors, excellent brightness output, and great viewing angles
  • iOS 7 is a nice evolution from the previous version, and is as simple, and intuitive as ever
  • Snappy, fluid performance
  • Future proof power package
  • Great on-screen keyboard
  • Excellent web browser
  • Excellent camera with very good low-light performance as well
  • Excellent call quality
  • Bundled iWork app suite
Editor's Note [Negatives]
  • The new maps app by Apple, lags far behind Google Maps in terms of comprehensiveness
  • Small screen size compared to other flagship phones, means that the video/photo viewing experience is not quite as immersive
