What The Tech World Is Saying About The iPhone 5S & 5C

CUPERTINO (CBS/AP) — Should you get a new “space gray” iPhone 5S that scans your fingerprint or its cheaper little sister the 5C, which is encased in candy-colored plastic?

A barrage of reviews arrived this week, ahead of Apple’s Friday release of two new iPhones. Here’s a sampling of what tech reporters, columnists and bloggers are saying about the new iPhone 5C and 5S…

Walt Mossberg, The Wall Street Journal: “If you are an iPhone fan with any model older than the iPhone 5, the new 5S will be a big step up. If you own an iPhone 5, there’s less of a case for upgrading, unless you want the fingerprint reader and improved camera.”

David Pogue, The New York Times: “(The) speed of innovation seems to be slowing down, but don’t let that depress you. Focus instead on the silver lining: you can keep your current phone longer without feeling obsolete quite so soon.”

Rich Jaroslovsky, Bloomberg: “If you like Apple products, you’ll like these; if you don’t, you won’t.”

Anick Jesdanun, The Associated Press: “Who knew biometric authentication could be such a blast?”

Lauren Goode, AllThingsD: “While the 5c looks and feels very familiar, it’s still a good phone and an improvement over the 5. But its improvements are evolutionary, not revolutionary.”

John Gruber, Daring Fireball: “The 5S is another engineering triumph for Apple (and no slacker in the fashion/branding game either). The 5C, though, is purely an emotional play – and, I think, a winning one.”

Scott Stein, CNET: “The iPhone 5S delivers an improved camera, a nifty fingerprint sensor, and a next-gen CPU and motion-tracking chip.”
