Pros and Cons of iPhone 5s

iPhone 5s – the smartphone is far from the newest smartphone, but is in great demand. Why? Probably, the matter of cost is one of the cheapest iPhone on the Russian market, in principle, and you can save money by choosing the restored option. About the advantages and disadvantages of this smartphone – in our article.



iPhone 5s will appeal to those users who do not need a large smartphone. Yes, smartphones with a large 5.5-inch screen are gaining more and more popularity, but adherents of compact displays are hardly much less.

By the way, the weight of the device is only 112 g.


It uses a very high-quality 4-inch screen with a resolution of 1136 × 640. For such a small display, this resolution is more than enough. There is no problem with color reproduction either..


Appearance, frankly, is an amateur – someone likes it, someone doesn’t. However, it must be recalled that the case here is metal, and its color can be chosen upon purchase, which is probably important to the buyer.


IPhone 5s uses the 2-core Apple A7 processor. Let’s just say this is far from the latest version of the processor, however, it copes with its responsibilities very, very well.

The amount of RAM is 1 GB. Not enough by modern standards? This is not a true statement, because Apple traditionally perfectly optimizes the device, so even in most cases 1 GB of RAM is enough for the user.

The amount of internal memory – from 16 GB to 64 GB.

There is support for 3G networks and LTE.


It uses an 8-megapixel iSight camera with f / 2.2 aperture, autofocus, face recognition, video recording support (maximum recording resolution – 1920 × 1080 pixels).

The camera, without a doubt, is very cool and you should not look at its resolution – this absolutely does not mean anything.

The fingerprint scanner

Touch ID is a first-generation fingerprint scanner. An excellent feature, thanks to which you do not need to enter a password every time to unlock the device. Only you can see these devices.


Great operating system. It is considered one of the most protected in the world..


You can save by buying a refurbished iPhone 5s. In addition, models without Touch ID appeared on the market, which, judging by the reviews, are sold even cheaper.



To many users, the 4-inch screen seems very small, despite all the pluses. And this is a serious reason to refuse to purchase.


Still, in some cases, the processor and RAM may not be enough. In addition, Apple does not support memory cards in its devices, so it will not work to increase the amount of current memory. If you have a 16 GB iPhone 5s, you might not have enough memory..


There are no complaints about the main camera, it even shoots at an excellent level even by today’s standards. But the front camera is not so good and selfies do not always turn out as cool as we would like.


The battery capacity is only 1560 mAh. Few? Some users have enough, while others claim that they lack a device even for one day.

In addition, the battery is non-removable, which for someone will be a minus.


Not everyone is happy with iOS, including the “closeness” of the operating system.


Relatively high cost relative to other, much newer smartphones.
