Buying a smartphone
Smartphones have come a long way since the first iPhone launched in 2007. The latest models are essentially portable computers, and they're only going to get more powerful.
Like a computer, smartphones aren't just about hardware. You also have to think of the software. In this case, that means apps. It doesn't do you any good to have blazing-fast hardware and nothing to run.
The iPhone 5s is the latest and greatest smartphone from Apple. It keeps the iPhone 5's, large 4-inch screen, dual-band Wi-Fi, 4G cellular and a new, smaller connector. But it adds the much more powerful A7 processor and a second M7 processor for handling the sensors and extras like fitness accessories.
