An Awesome Number Upgrade

So, Apple offers model upgrades on its iPhone every year. On each number upgrade, the step up always seems to be much more noticeable than the S years. When the iPhone 5 was released back in 2012, the upgrades were evident. Not only was the iPhone 5 longer, slimmer and lighter than its predecessor the iPhone 4S, it also featured a sleek new glass and metal chassis. For most iPhone owners, there are certain standards they expect. They expect gorgeous design – check – and excellent performance. So, did the iPhone 5 deliver on performance?

Of course it did. Utilising Apple’s new A6 processor, the iPhone 5 offered smooth performance that was super quick. And with the phone’s 4G upgrade, connecting to the internet was pretty zippy as well. Unlike some of the years’ following iPhones, the iPhone 5 offered solid battery performance, but, compared to the competition, the iPhone 5’s screen size was a bit of a let down for some. Yes, Apple had made the iPhone 5 screen longer than the 4S, but it hadn’t made it wider – to make it easier to navigate, apparently. 

Another bugbear for some users was the fact that Apple still didn’t include HDMI, micro USB, memory expansion or NFC on its iPhone 5 – and while iOS was amazing, it didn’t allow for customisation like certain Android phones. Overall though, the iPhone 5 was pretty spectacular. Its design was lovely, its performance was lovely, and features, such as its display and camera, were also lovely. And given how old the phone is now, its price is also lovely.

Buying the iPhone 5

While Apple may have discontinued the iPhone 5, it’s still available to buy on eBay. Check out the brand new and used iPhone 5 and all its features, and compare it to the many other mobile phones on the market. Design and performance at a very decent price? Who could say no to that?
