How Useful is the iPhone 5s?
A lot of websites have done a great job of describing in painstaking detail the new hardware and software of Apple’s iPhone 5s and accompanying iOS7 update. I want to take the analysis a step further and ask just one question about all of these shiny new improvements: How useful are they?
The word “useful” means different things to different people. To me, something is useful if it does one or more of the following:
- Serves an important purpose in a more efficient manner than another tool.
- Saves me time, money, or effort.
- Increases my overall level of happiness or satisfaction.
So with this in mind, I’d like to evaluate the new hardware and software features. I will try to keep my analysis as unbiased and objective as possible. I’ll evaluate on a 0-5 scale, with 0 being “Useless” and 5 being “This Could Be Life Changing”.
