Verge score: 8.8

The successor to the iPhone 5, the 5S brings several new features to the table, most notably a gold color variant and fingerprint scanner called Touch ID. A significantly improved camera has also been added, offering fast and slow motion video along with a burst mode. The 5S is the first iPhone to run on a 64-bit architecture, which means improved performance in almost every way.
