Mr. Ajmera's Review (A business user)

Apart from efficient and advanced call management, I'd also like my smartphone to be able to perform functions like Document Viewer, Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, Microsoft PowerPoint, PDF, PPT, PPTX, XLS, XLSX, TXT, DOC, DOCX and much more, just like the Apple iPhone 5S. Although the Apple iPhone 5S might be extremely portable with its small exterior but I don't think it's worth against the cramped keypad it offers and even the functionality isn't worth the struggle. With all the advanced call management features present in the Apple iPhone 5S, it is good choice for business users like me. Bluetooth for file sharing is really not of much use to me, but this feature is really handy when it comes to hands-free calling. Even if my travel routes, both business and pleasure, are very much known to me I'd still like the reassurance from the GPS navigation on my phone.

Mrs. Iyer's Review (A homemaker)

It looks really small and comfortable for carrying, but I can't type without misspelling the words at least 3-4 times, that's how uncomfortable using this Apple iPhone 5S is. I keep zooming in on many images and forwards and multi-touch makes this really easy. Video recording is a must on my phone, I just love recording and capturing the innocence of cake cutting or the craziness of a dinner party. I won't worry about the other features in the Apple iPhone 5S as the camera is so average and a strong deterrent for me.

Ishan's Review (A geek)

As a smartphone, the screen size of the Apple iPhone 5S is quite decent; but too tiny when it comes to gaming or reading. The multi-touch screen allows me to zoom in or zoom out during a game; also, it feels so real to flick pages of an ebook using my fingers. The 16 GB internal storage of the Apple iPhone 5S is really meant for me and my ever-growing ebook and gaming collection.

Prachi's Review (A social butterfly)

The first thing I noticed in the Apple iPhone 5S was its 4 inches display. The screen size of the Apple iPhone 5S is too cramped and so I can't text that easily on this screen size. The pinching movement on the screen of the Apple iPhone 5S lets me zoom in and zoom out the images. The Multi-Touch technology is too cool as I can rotate images or turn pages of ebook by just flicking my fingers. The Yes, 8 MP camera resolution is not that cool. You can easily opt for any other smartphone with a better camera, it might even be cheaper. I don't think this smartphone can click awesome pictures, which by the way is my favourite hobby. Recently, I can't imagine life without selfies, and hence the secondary camera. Clicking selfies and groupies is a favourite pastime for me and my friends. It's sometimes difficult to click selfies and groupies with the main camera, so always go for smartphones with good secondary camera. I'd like my smartphone to do all my tasks simultaneously not just perform basic functions like browsing, messaging and emails. And I won't depend upon 2G networks for that. I keep checking the GPS for new locations and traffic updates. The USB connector lets me charge my phone even with my laptop and transfer files. Lower internal storage like 16 GB makes me chose which movies, music, images and videos to keep or delete from your phone. A larger internal storage suits me more than average internal memory as I hate deleting my smartphone content due to memory issues.
