iPhone 5S

What is an iPhone 5S?

Released in September 2013, the iPhone 5S replaces the iPhone 5 as Apple's top of the range smartphone. Externally, it is the same size and shape as it's predecessor but has a faster processor, better camera and fingerprint recognition. Up to 5 fingerprints can be stored allowing other people to use the phone if required and there is a passcode backup in case you need to give somebody else access to your phone (or if you lose your finger!). A new motion sensor — the M7 chip — is expected to open up a new range of health and fitness apps. Despite the more powerful processor battery life is claimed to be the same or better than the iPhone 5. iPhone 5S has three colour options — Gold, Silver and Space Grey which looks very similar to the Black iPhone 5.

What do I need to know?

Like it's predecessors the iPhone 5S is a great phone, possibly the best smartphone in the world. It's not dramatically different from the iPhone 5 but the increased performance and better camera are welcome improvements and the new M7 motion sensor will open up a whole host of possibilities for new types of apps. Fingerprint recognition seems quirky at first but will soon be accepted as the obvious solution.

Where can I buy one?

There are two ways to buy an iPhone 5S - as part of a contract with a network such as Vodafone or O2 (either directly from the network or through as reseller such as Carphone Warehouse, Phones 4 U or Dial A Phone) or to buy it outright and buy your phone service/SIM card separately. Amazon and eBay are good places to find cheap deals on iPhones for outright purchase. We have put together an iPhone 5S price comparison page checking prices from all these sources to find the best deals for you.

What about secondhand iPhones?

Secondhand can be an attractive option, saving you the initial depreciation that happens as soon as you open the box, and if you buy a fairly new secondhand one, all the manufacturer's warranty will still be in place so you will be fully covered in the event of any faults. If you're prepared to go slightly older, you can often pick up some real bargains with last year's model going for a fraction of it's original price. eBay is of course one of the best places to find secondhand iPhone bargains and we have created a page that searches eBay for you to find the best deals on secondhand iPhone 5S for sale. Our unique filtering system trawls through the eBay database selecting only the most relevant offers and best deals to save you time.
