Any objective person can see that the 5S destroys the myth that Apple lost its mojo and is no longer the leading innovator.
The 5S is at least a generation ahead of any other smartphone, being:
* FIRST with ARM's 64 bit architecture in the incredibly fast A7 SoC processor which is an amazing 40 times faster than the original iPhone and with its doubling of graphics speed over the already superfast iPhone 5;
* FIRST with the separate M chip which hugely reduces battery drain while operating 24-7 (lets hope they've patented the idea although Samsung will doutless copy it anyway) which will lead to many new mobility and fitness Apps and gadgets.
* FIRST with the their state of the art Athentec fingerprint scanner which provides really easy to use, reliable and exceptionally high level security
* FIRST with the really well thought out, advanced new camera hardware and software which needs the 64 bit power
* all combined with iOS 7 which has been highly acclaimed by most critics and is almost certainly going to be a huge hit with users.
I'm quite excited about the 5s, but I believe the motox sets aside a couple of low power cores for sensor processing. I think it's still on the main die but Motorola have already implemented an M7 style of architecture. Perhaps not physically, but certainly in principle.
I'm also running ios7 on my 4s and I must say there some weird incongruencies which I don't like.
The interface is flat, then it goes 3d in unexpected places, like tab selection in safari.
The elastic effect when scrolling in the notes app reveals a canvas that is not quite the same colour.
There's also a stipple background in that app, where nearly all the other Ui elements have been rid of textures.
Losing the frames around the buttons can make things look a little unbalanced.
Minor quibbles, but it just takes off some of the polish on what is really a great Ui overhaul given the timeframes in which it was done.
