HOWEVER, please be advised that any phone that is listed as new MUST arrive in original box and factory sealed from Apple. If the white Apple box arrives without the factory seal, it's considered used not new.....just a heads up to future buyers.
This caused me considerable trouble, as the 3 area Sprint stores I called claimed they did not have any SIM cards for the Apple iPhone 5s, but they could order them and probably get them in in 2-3 weeks. One store quoted me a price of $35 per SIM card, and another wanted $36. I was also told that I could not get the Sprint SIM cards I needed at an Apple store. This was NOT acceptable, but if you read Sprint forums online, it appears that it is not unusual. The Sprint stores REALLY want you to buy your phone from them, not Amazon, or Apple, or elsewhere...and they offer the 16GB 5s at the full retail price of $649.99 (plus tax, of course).
Luckily, I had also called Apple Tech Support about the problem of the missing SIM cards (1-888-My-Apple). They called the local Apple store while I was on the phone with them, and informed me that not only did the Apple store have the Sprint SIMs in stock, but that they would provide them to me free of charge. Now that's better.
We were able to easily install the SIM cards and then take the phones to the local Sprint store to have them activated (you can no longer do this online, unfortunately). This was a very long process because we wanted to keep our current phone numbers, but eventually we were able to get everything squared away.
Moral of the story: buy the phone from Amazon (great deal), call Apple Tech support, procure a SIM card, install it, and THEN and ONLY THEN, consult Sprint.
Now I have to wait up to three days to obtain approval from "Solid (Crap) Purchases" to return it, and wait again for a refund.. Other shipping companies associated with Amazon have better wrapped and cared more in delivering a $10 item, in comparison to a fragile new apple iphone costing several hundred dollars. I will never purchase anything from "Solid Purchases" again. Avoid the big disappoint I am experiencing, and consider selecting another shipper.
The Retina display is lagging behind. In 2010 it was cutting edge, in a world of primitive Android phones. Now, just about everyone is besting the Retina display. My HTC 8X (a Windows Phone) has a much better screen, with better colors. The Retina has a yellow tinge to it that is quite noticeable side by side with another phone. Android phones with 1080P displays have far more pixels and look much better than the Retina.
I don't care that it is only 4 inches, I actually like the small screen. It fits in your hand much better and you can handle it with ease.
The battery is excellent. It charges very quickly, and lasts multiple days with ease. iOS is very well optimized so that it doesn't lose hardly any battery in standby. It is much better than my Android and Windows Phones I have owned.
The iPhone is overall a pretty boring phone, but the 5S introduces some very innovative technologies, namely the new camera, A7 chip, and Touch ID.
The new camera is incredible. My Nexus 4 looks like a toy camera from Toys R Us in comparison. The iPhone 5S' pictures are brilliant, and the camera refreshes much faster than the Nexus 4. The Slo-Mo feature, while really a gimmick, is actually quite fun to play with and is a nice addition.
The A7 is fast. Very fast. But if you are expecting a revolutionary change in performance, that is not here.Read more ›
