    Never noticed it on my 5S, fairly sure that only applied to 6 onwards. Agreed that it wasn't a particularly clever move on the part of Apple, regardless of phone iteration.

    Ahh now that's something I didn't consider. The effect of this is probably different to what I would expect as stuff requiring grunt works just fine (image editing is just fine, for example) but for shutting down to go from 10 seconds to 2 minutes is just madness and very strange.

    The market suggests otherwise. To the extent that "phablets" are now just "phones."
