Since my contract renewal was up, I had the option to renew it and buy a new phone alongside with it. Since I have an unofficial policy of never buying into the same platform twice in a row, and because it has been a long time since I bought something from Cupertino, I decided to go with the newest iPhone, the 5S. I'm planning on a more thorough review sometime later this year after more thorough use, but here are a few short first impressions.

fingerprint sensor

Not sure whether it's a direct fault of the fingerprint sensor or not, but I feel that the iPhone has lost a lot of it's identity with the removal of the square on the home button. Previously, someone who'd been living in a cave for a year or two could tell it was an iPhone even without any company name of logo on the front, all thanks to that square. Now it looks like it could have been made by anyone.
