iPad Air vs iPhone 5s: iSight and FaceTime camera shootout!

While the iPad Air now has the same, improved front-facing FaceTime HD camera as the iPhone 5s - and every other 2013 iOS device - its rear-facing iSight camera remains very much unchanged from the iPad 4 and original iPad mini. What has changed however is the software and hardware that power it. With iOS 7 and the very same Apple A7 found in the iPhone 5s - and the very same image signal processor (ISP) - the iPad Air could see an overall boost in quality anyway. To measure how it stacks up, we put the 5 megapixel iPad Air camera up against the 8 megapixel camera, not see if it would win - it doesn't have a chance - but to see how close it can come!

Apple iPhone 5s vs. HTC One: Which phone should you get?

The iPhone 5s is the latest, greatest new handset from Apple, and while the HTC One may not be the latest Android handset on the market, by many accounts, it's still the greatest. Unlike many of its Android competitors, it has build quality to rival Apple's, including a similar penchant for aluminium, but also the very Android-like (and not very Apple-like) big screen to go with it. HTC has a reputation for pushing specs to the limit, while Apple has a reputation for pushing experience over specs. Both are fantastic, but the question is - which is the more fantastic for you?

Apple iPhone 5s vs. Samsung Galaxy S4: Which phone should you get?

The biggest competition in mobile right now is Apple and Samsung, and the biggest rivalry, iPhone 5s vs. Galaxy S4. Both are enormously popular, but both are incredibly different. Integrated vs. licensed, small screen vs. big screen, design-centric vs. spec-centric, and the list goes on and on. Which one is best is a matter of endless debate, but the more important question is - which one is best for you?

iPhone 5s vs Lumia 925 vs Lumia 1020 camera showdown!

It was only a matter of time before the iPhone 5s camera got put head to head against other camera phones, particularly the Nokia Lumia series. The Lumia 1020 and 925 are both arguably some of the best smartphone cameras on the market. Daniel Rubino over at our sister site, wpCentral, has put all three cameras through their paces and provided a great comparison showing how each camera handles different scenarios in an epic iPhone 5s vs Lumia 925 vs Lumia 1020 camera comparison.

iPhone 5s vs iPhone 5c vs iPhone 5: iSight camera shootout!

The iPhone 5s once again shows Apple's focus on cameras, bringing several improvements to the 8 megapixel iSight camera on the back. These include a dual LED white/yellow flash called True Tone, a larger f/2.2 aperture, bigger 1.5mm pixel sensor, and, of course, the next generation image signal processor (ISP) in the new Apple A7 chipset. What does this mean for overall, every day photo quality? What does it mean for skin tones and low-light? What does it mean for motion and dynamic range? And how does it compare to the also just-launched iPhone 5c and last year's similarly equipped iPhone 5? Let's take a look!

iPhone 5s on AT&T: Data and voice review

The iPhone 5s is here, along with the new Touch ID fingerprint ID sensor, Apple A7 processor, M7 motion coprocessor, much improved iSight camera, and more LTE data support than ever. The best phone in the world is only as good as the carrier it's connected to, however, so for the last few days I've been testing it on AT&T in the U.S., and in several categories including call clarity, data speeds, tethering capabilities, and more. Does the updated LTE support that Apple is calling UltraFast really make a difference on AT&T? Are their any improvements over last year's iPhone 5, and if so, are they substantial? Let's find out!

iOS 7 vs. Instagram vs. Google+ vs. Twitter: Black & White photo filter comparison

I recently previewed the new Camera app Apple will be releasing alongside iOS 7 this fall, and one of the things that stood out for me the most was not so much the inclusion of built-in photo filters - everyone seems to be adding those these days - but the subtly and restraint shown in which filters Apple chose to include. Not only aren't there any tilt-shifts, frames, borders, or vignettes, but there's nothing overly aggressive about Apple's selection in any way. How does that compare to current king of photo sharing, Instagram, and to the other big social photo sharing services, Google+ and Twitter?

You can now get the best Samsung and HTC phones on the market with 100% less Samsung and HTC software... (Something something iPhone)

While we're still waiting on a 2013 iPhone 5s, Android Central has already gotten the second versions of both their flagship Samsung Galaxy S4 and HTC One only this time without any trace of Samsung or HTC software. That's right, these are "Google Editions" and that means they come with stock Android Jelly Bean. Phil Nickinson took a first look at the Google Play editions HTC One and Samsung Galaxy S4 and here's his take away:

How iOS 7 compares to previous versions [Chart]

iOS 7, at least as much as we saw of it at WWDC 2013, compared at a glance with previous major releases. We began including version charts in our reviews last year, including our monster iOS 6 review, and we'll be doing more with this come the fall. For now, however, I'll just leave it here so you can check it out, and weigh in where Apple's focus seems to be this year.
