Please let it have 2 gigs of memory.

seemaboss says:

awesome specs.... no one can beat this.. i am excited to see 4 inc screen and 1440 battery and camera with burst mode

Illustrator Joe says:

What do you mean by "beat this"?

VSG28 says:

@seemaboss: Are you serious?

CrzyP says:

But they can beat screen specs.

IcantCanything says:

Can the iPhone 5s do voice and data at the same time on Verizon? BC I know that the 5 doesn't.

POP3Y3 says:

It's a Verizon issue, not iPhone issue.

return_0 says:

Android phones on Verizon have simultaneous voice and data...

POP3Y3 says:

So does Apple. As stated, it's a Verizon issue.

return_0 says:

Then why do Android phones on Verizon have it?

Vic Hudson says:

It is my understanding that the android devices that support simultaneous voice and data on Verizon do so because that actually built in two radios to accommodate Verizon's network.

trmoney24 says:

nope, that will still be limited to one at a time. best bet is to wait until Voice over LTE (VoLTE) comes out. Then you can do both at the same time, IF you are making a phone call over LTE and not their voice network.

Joshua Massre says:

It can't because Apple only puts one antenna for CDMA in their phones. Most Android phones have two, so they can use one for data and one for voice.

Analog Spirit says:

What I'd like to know is, why do they have like 5 different models this time? The LTE bands aren't that different on most of them. I can see having a separate model for China for their peculiar frequencies that they're on, but the rest of those models look kind of superfluous. From an LTE compatibility perspective the A1453 looks like the one to have, as it encompasses almost every LTE band there is. That's the one I'd get.

Timelessblur says:

Am I the only one who finds it kind of sad that on Windows side Apple is supporting an OS that is over 10 years old yet they are not even supporting their own OS's back 5 years? *aka Vista is an older OS than what Apple is supporting

Joshua Massre says:

That's probably because the market share of most of Apple's older versions of OS X is so insignificant. Windows XP, on the other hand, still has a massive market share.

Also, during the time since XP, Apple released 8 versions of their OS while Microsoft released 3.

gopherhockey says:

Ditto! I upgraded my router just for this purpose…..

and no 128gb version.

Bluecanary says:

With the 350$ trade in from Wal Mart I'll only pay 50$ to upgrade... No question.

Sinandgrin says:

$350? I thought Walmart was only giving up to a max of $300 for the iPhone 5.

Bluecanary says:

315 for the 16 GB 350 for 64 GB

Sinandgrin says:

Your right I saw that after I went through their exchange process. Target, partnered with NextWorth will pay $410.00 for a 64GB iPhone 5 however, that's what I will be doing.

Bluecanary says:

Hmm. I'm getting 325 for a black 64gb iPhone 5 on AT&T with Target.

Heisenberg says:

For 64GB you should be getting more than even $410

James Trent says:

are the 5 and 5s the same size? So a 5 case will work on a 5s? Or do we have to buy a 5s specific case?

Vic Hudson says:

The new 5s leather case also fits the iPhone 5 so I would think current cases are good to go!!
