Best Smartphones 2013 – Apple iPhone 5s

When it comes to the best flagship smartphones, the iPhone has always been the one to beat. And the new Apple iPhone — the iPhone 5s — is once again on the top of the heap. With a 64-bit A7 processor,  benchmarks say it’s the fastest smartphone available.

best-smartphones-2013-new-apple-iphone-5sApple set an opening weekend record this year, selling 9 million of the new Apple iPhone 5s along with the slightly cheaper iPhone 5c. Plus, the supply of the gold-colored model has been constrained (my wife waited well over a month for hers).

Besides being a speed demon, the latest flagship iPhone is one of the best smartphones thanks to features like the Touch ID fingerprint sensor, an improved camera and iOS7  Apple’s latest mobile operating system. As an iOS device, this new smartphone also has access to iTunes and Apple’s App Store. One of the best smartphones overall, the iPhone 5s is the top choice for any Apple fan.

On the downside, this definitely isn’t the best smartphone for folks looking for a big display. The new Apple iPhone 5s has the smallest screen of the bunch at just 4 inches.

The new Apple iPhone 5 unlocked will cost you $649, so it is priced as a premium device. But still, there’s no doubt of its place among the best smartphones 2013 has to offer.
