Customer Review

I've been thinking a long time whether I would like to switch from Samsung to Apple or not.

Ultimately, I have to I decided to buy the iPhone 5 s and can only say that this was one of the best decisions in 2014.

Since I have been working exclusively with Android and has always been rather skeptical about the iOS, was of course a special attention.
I was amazed that almost everything was self explanatory and I did not have to look on the internet in the operating instructions / statements with a few exceptions.
Not only that the functions are self-explanatory. They are also practically in their application and generally superior to other device manufacturers / than Android.

There was also my part, a queasy feeling about the matter of data protection.
Here I must say that I was surprised here also positive, because it is possible to disable many compounds Apps to block access to the Internet to issue ad tracking and make also other data protection settings.

Third, I was curious to see how the case is with the application closing. I've noticed other iPhones that to close an app just a press of the Home button is enough to return to the Home screen. However, the app continues to run always in the background and you have to finish this manually. This I've always imagined extremely cumbersome and was therefore more than surprising that this to me now even better is the way Apple has solved the.
Often one has indeed forgotten something and you have again purely in the application. With a simple double-click on the Home button no problem - because the app can immediately call them up again. Also, I can see no disproportionately recognizable battery weakened by this operation.
Only the closing of all applications with a single click would have been desirable. After you have opened a lot of applications, closing can sometimes be annoying.

After me this occurred through the three above-mentioned points skepticism was gone, I can now say only positive things about this phone.

A main argument for buying the iPhone 5s was in optics.
I think the phone looks very elegant and has the optimal size.
The fact that it has moved a bit longer, but a bit narrow, it fits perfectly in your hand and can be opposed to mobile phones that almost reminiscent of a tablet, operated with one hand.
The back of my cell phone is spacegrau. But since I anyway a hard case of "Vau back shield" have over it, I can not judge whether the back scratched quickly.

When I turned on the iPhone for the first time, I was surprised by the display and its brightness.
It really lights up crisp and it's fun to work with this.

Even the battery lasts in normal activities (Internet on the day of, Safari usage, Whatsapp) and a very high brightness for today's conditions for long.

The first images showed me a previously unknown cell phone quality and especially the tripping speed of the camera is fun.

Once again In summary highlight the following advantages:

+ Crisp and bright display
+ IOS like me now very well
Solved + optimal usability
+ Lace design
+ Good camera

Really serious, noteworthy negative points I have not noticed, but I will publish them here, if I later something should stand out.

Great choice ... 1 Rank: 5/5
