APPLE IPHONE 5S
The iPhone 5s is essentially a point-and-shoot experience, with no manual settings under the hood for you to tinker with. Luckily for its users, the 5s’ automatic choices are generally smart, the AF is usually spot-on and it can recognize faces most of the time. If you tap to focus but don’t shoot, the camera will cleverly go back to multi-area AF after a few moments.
Shot-to-shot response is quick, and you can now hold down on the shutter release icon to shoot in bursts. That’s both a blessing and a curse; you can accidentally shoot bursts of images without meaning to, but it’s a good thing that the 5s presents you with the one shot it thinks turns out best (while saving the rest in the background).
There’s no dedicated shutter release button, but once the camera app is active the volume buttons double as shutter releases. The iPhone 5s’ display’s colors are especially rich and natural-looking, that’s because it runs the full sRGB gamut which gives you fuller and more accurate colors. The iPhone 5s is the smallest phone in the lot, its size does make it easier to hold and use onehanded, but the smaller screen makes for a more cramped viewfinder.
