    For me, I must say the finger ID stuff, as I really hate entering my pass code a hundred times a day, I'd rather just provide my thumb. I don't really think we will see 64 bit stuff take off just yet, and I just feel it is more of a marketing gimmick right now...

    What's your favorite thing about the 5S?

    I think it is a beautifully crafted piece of hardware. The TouchID really is seamless. The camera is fantastic. Everything is very snappy and iOS 7 looks and runs great on it. The speakerphone quality is pretty darn good compared to just about any phone I have had prior to this. Overall, it is a well designed and well built piece of technology.

    For me it is the fingerprint ID, speed (came from a 4S), battery life (this was a pleasant surprise), the camera, the gold, and even the color on my screen looks crisper and more vibrant.

    For me, it's gonna be touch ID, it's so quick! Also things seem smoother and the camera in low light is awesome!

    I upgraded from a 4s, so the things I love are the TouchID, the speed, the battery life (I go ALL DAY and still have life left at night). I also like how light weight it is.
    I also love that it is LTE compatible. What a difference.

    For me it's the build quality and the way it feels and works in the hand.

    I really love Touch ID, the display size which allows for easy one handed use, battery life, and the speed of the A7 processor.

    I'm genuinely surprised people mentioned battery life, I guess I was just using my iPhones really heavily...

    Touch ID is number one for me. With my 4s I hated having to put in a passcode so I never used it much. Touch ID is much more convenient. I also love its speed and the way the phone feels in my small hands.

    This.

    Touch ID is surprising seamless. I simply press the home button and keep my finger on it for a split second more, and I am in.

    Between 4g and A7 chip, my phone also feels faster. Apps and websites that used to take a while to load now seem to load almost immediately.

    That said, battery life doesn't seem any better though. Perhaps it's because of the 4g, but I am not seeing any longer battery life compared to my 4s (whose battery has already been subject to 2 years worth of charging).

    Before I received it (and even within the first couple of days of getting it), I wasn't overly thrilled or even really interested in the fingerprint scanner. Now...it's second nature to unlock my phone like this, and the feature works flawlessly. I really find it rather nice, convenient and most of all, secure.

    The camera is just awesome. It truly is. The things I wished for on previous iPhone cameras are present...Now I can only hope that Apple takes a page from Nokia, and implements a more functional zoom feature in the future. Once the zoom function allows for a more legitimate use of such, this camera will be damn near perfect. The flash works good for what it is, but this type of flash is just not ever going to serve as a proper legitimate camera flash.

    Everything else kind of becomes redundant, because they are things I have loved about the iPhone for many generations now.

    Speed is the biggest thing for me. It's so friggin fast. Battery life is ridiculous. The TouchID is OK, but I am still kind of in that swipe to unlock habit and find myself doing that more often than I realize.

    Okay, I don't have mine yet but I've played with my friend's white 5S more than she'd like so I'll base it off of that.

    The camera is just so damn fast. I didn't realize how slow my 4S is until a few days ago. I'm going to have a lot of fun with that when I finally get one. I've already done some fun Slow-Mo stuff too. I'm eager and ready.

    Lol-same here! I didn't even set up the fingerprint scanner for the first couple of weeks. Have a pass code-required for work, so it wasn't about being lazy. I was having so much fun with the camera that hardly anything else mattered.

    Set it up a week ago and LOVE IT! I now keep placing my thumb over the home button on iPad mini, expecting it to do something. If Oct 22 brings word of iPad mini with fingerprint sensor, I fear I will be sold. That plus retina display and a decent speed boost, that is...

    for me -my old phone that I upgraded from had terrible battery life, especially in the last few months...so battery life is one thing I love about the 5S...I like the fingerprint ID...otherwise i'd have the passcode turned off since it is more of a nuisance...

    The speed is nice also...
