The camera on the 5S is the best iPhone one yet, but it falls short of receiving our recommendation award. Yes, you can take great pictures, but it's still frustrating that Apple haven't allowed more manual controls over shooting. There are apps...

With a 4.3in display and top-end features, this handset sees Sony challenging Apple's iPhone 5S in the smartphone market, and it's no doubt looking to win over buyers with the fact that its Xperia Z1 Compact, at £449, is around £70 cheaper than Apple's...

The iPhone 5s is the best smartphone Apple has ever made and the fastest smartphone on the planet. If you are a speed junkie or a fitness buff, ditch your iPhone 5 for the iPhone 5s. It's well worth it. It's also worth it for the camera...

As you’d expect, the iPhone 5s is the best iPhone yet. Apple has delivered a measured but meaningful update to what remains one of the most popular smartphones out there. The forward looking 64 bit processor, M7 motion coprocessor and Touch ID all...
