I work with Apple Products every day, and while Macs are incredible, the iPhone products are stagnant and boring. The iPhone completely revolutionized the smartphone market, and made it what it is today. I will give the iPhone and Apple their due credit.
The iPhone has always been an innovative platform for the camera, and the camera on the 5S is no different. It's surely excellent, and most any other phone will be hard pressed to compete in that department.
The 64 bit architecture change has the capability to be huge, but without the different application developers jumping on board, I don't think it's going to be that big a game changer. From a marketing standpoint, it's brilliant, even if it just gives us compatibility headaches. "Power of a desktop in your hand" anyone?
The thing that makes the iPhone such a lame product in my eyes, is iOS. Even with the big changes in iOS 7, it's still basically the same product I gave up happily for a first generation product from a company with a questionable future (BlackBerry Z10).
Unless you're fully invested in the Apple/iTunes ecosystem, don't fall for the marketing hype around the 5S and 5C. They're not that much different from what's out there, and in the case of the 5C, it's no different at all.
