Spec wars: iPhone 5s vs. Nexus 4 vs. HTC One vs. BlackBerry Z10 vs. Lumia 1020
Here it is, iPhone 5s vs Nexus 4 vs HTC One vs. BlackBerry Z10 vs. Lumia 1020! Since Apple has just released all the information regarding tech specs of their latest flagship phone, the iPhone 5s, it's time to put them head to head with the competition.
The most noticeable updates to the iPhone 5s over its predecessor, the iPhone 5, are internal changes. That's pretty much what we expected anyways. One of the biggest updates is the processor which received a significant bump to an A7 chipset that features 64-bit architecture along with an M7 co-processor which will greatly help many apps better sense and track motion, particularly fitness apps.
Apple's next flagship feature unique to the iPhone 5s is the Touch ID fingerprint sensor which consists of four layers and complete 360-degree readability. If it works as well as Apple claims it does, it could make security a heck of a lot more convenient.
The camera has also received some improvements including a better flash that Apple is calling a True Tone flash. Instead of boosting megapixels, they chose the route of increasing the sensor to 1.5µ pixels. This is similar to what HTC did with the HTC One in order to handle low light settings better. It isn't as good of an increase as HTC's 2.0µ pixels but it's definitely a better choice that just adding raw megapixels.
