Apple's iPhone 5s is the first of the company's smartphones to launch with a 64-bit Apple A7 processor, but how does this compare against the iPhone 5? In a new video, we go hands-on with both handsets and pit them head-to-head in a Geekbench benchmark test. The results are impressive, albeit unsurprising. Compared against the iPhone 5, the iPhone 5s does well, scoring readings of 1394 (single-core) and 2506 (multi-core).
