to become the new generation of hope for our country. But always keep in mind that the
prestigious reputation of our school does not come from the school itself but rather from
the honorable acts of the previous students and alumni. Teachers are there to assist, to
inspire and to guide the students. It is up to each individual to decide how they want to live

IPhone 5c, 5s, and Samsung galaxy note.

I have to say Samsung galaxy and Apple iPhone, are very
competitive;they are very similar and very different at the same time.
Starting with the iPhone 5c and 5s. These two are difficult to
compare. Apple has created a split of creations for different customers to
choose from. The 5c and 5s have nothing similar at all. The 5c, is made
from plastic, and incorporates an A6 chip, enough for running any
application but is only available in up to 32 GB storage space.Its structure
however is a steel enforced frame, so it doesn’t have a cheap, plastic feel.
One of the reasons it’s plastic, is because their design of colors, the five
colors chosen that are available, plus additional cases made from silicone
with soft micro-fiber lined inside, gives you a soft and comfortable
touch,and holes have been precisely drilled to align the speakers, unlike
some cases you buy at shopping malls. The circular pattern plays an
artistic role in creating focus on the original body color, giving a good
contrast. At the same time, the new IOS 7 has colorful backgrounds that fit
perfectly with the color theme, and the styling of icons and menus, add to
the aesthetics makingth is model suitable for teens or young adults.
The iPhone 5s, offers something more luxurious, with the
optional gold, silver and gray color, giving a very distinctive style:a
luxurious feel, metallic, cool, with a light and thin, superior, architectural
design. Precision crafting, with aluminum housing, sleek metal and glass,
and sapphire crystals for the home button and the iSight camera, this thing
is a gem! Talking about the iSight camera, we have now got twice the specs
of the old one. Larger sensor, larger pixels and larger aperture; up to 2.2
can give you better low light performance and a thinner depth of field.
Containing a continuous burst shot, you don’t need to gun the shutter
button, instead, hold it down and you get 10 frames a second, with auto
image stabilization, more than most DSLR cameras these days!. The best
part of the camera is the Dual LED flash, one LED and amber LED, known as
the true tone flash, gives you the most realistic colors you can get. There
also are built in editing functions like color filters, light effects, crop frames,
so you don’t need apps, which can be considered both good and bad. In
video mode, you get 720p videos at 120 frames per second, creating
extremely smooth videos and giving the ability for slow motion videos,
plus a live view zoom and a snapshot, meaning you can zoom and capture
a still while shooting a video. It is the first 64-bit phone in the world, with
an A7 chip, higher than the 5c, up to 64 GB storage, and the ultrafast LTE
wireless gives you faster download and upload speeds, an app fires twice
as fast, runs twice as smooth and processes amazingly quick. The most
exciting part of this model is the all-new touch id fingerprint identity
sensor; you scan your fingerprint in the area that is the home button. It is
also used as a pass lock, and apple ID passwords for the device.
