    I have purchased the 5S and have tested the alleged speed against my wife's I5 and there doesn't seem to be much difference. I have done the safari test with both having similar results. Not as many hiccups between apps, but it just doesn't seem right. Is there any way to check to make sure the processor is running efficiently? Could my restoration to my old I5 data when I connected to iTunes cause this lag? I guess I am confused b/c I thought this phone would cruise a bit faster. Of course, it says a lot about the I5 and it's processor. Thoughts?

    There isn't any noticeable difference between the two with most apps. You might notice a slight difference with graphically-intense games.

    Yeah, that's what I've been reading. Not a big gamer, but like I said, seems to be less "hiccups" or "lag" going between apps. I am pleased with the battery life. My I5 never made a smooth transition to ios 7 battery consumption. 6 hours of use at best.

    On a related note, there's intention lag (animations) on iOS 7. There is no setting to completely disable them on a stock iPhone (reducing animations doesn't disable them), but you can do it with jailbreak tweak. You can switch between apps instantaneously and see how fast the processor really is after doing this.

    I'll have to look into the jailbreak.. It still is very smooth regardless. I just want to make sure I am getting the most out is my phone..

    The iPhone has been smooth since 2007. It's never been jerky. It's just that we have to wait on the phone while it does these needless animations unless we jailbreak and disable them.

    HiddenSettings7.

    Here are the directions for disabling the lock/unlock fades. The open/close app animations can be disabled with these settings:

    Until all of the apps are 64 bit you will not see much of a difference.
