What I Think of the iPhone 5S

The iPhone 5s was first released back in 2013 and was the first Apple phone to receive the Touch ID fingerprint home button. It also received a 64-bit processor. When it was on the market it was the most expensive iPhone on the market because of all the different features it had. As time has passed this iPhone, is now currently one of the cheapest you can find

on the market. Apple does not make this particular type of product any more but you are still able to find this phone on online stores like ours. But should you buy one?

How does it look?

This particular iPhone represented the typical iPhone body that its predecessor had, the iPhone 5. It was very difficult to tell between the two at the time and when the iPhone 6 was put onto the market we sore a dramatically different design to the iPhone. The iPhone 5s is mainly surrounded by aluminium and a glass body giving you a very light handest to hold.

What I particularly like about the iPhone 5s is that it isn’t a large handset where you would need to hands to type out a message. I have always preferred the smaller easier to hold iPhone than the more recent iPhone 11 were you need two hands to properly use the phone.

How does the display hold up?

On the iPhone 5s, we currently have the same Retina display that is in the iPhone 5 and iPhone 5C. The screen is four-inches big and has a resolution of 1136 x 640, making it still-sharp at 326ppi. Compering this screen to other iPhone models is difficult because there are definitely better screens that you can get now with newer models

However, the four-inch screen is good enough for any type of task that you might need, especially for everyday needs. If you want to use this phone to watch videos and play high-quality games, this isn’t the phone for you.

The Touch ID

We can all now see why we needed the Touch ID on our phones. On this particular iPhone, there was the suspense that if it was going to work or not. On this phone, it works perfectly. It saves so much time when you don’t have to put your pin code into the phone and I would also say it makes your phone more secure. As Apple started to release bigger phones it started to get more difficult to put in your pin code and this is why the Touch ID is a great feature.

How does it function

In 2013 the iPhone 5s was installed with two chips which made it one of the most powerful phones on the market. The first chip was the A7 which was able to boot the phone’s capabilities which made it no slouch. The other chip was the M7. The M7 is able to monitor what your Fitbit tracks. It can monitor when you are jogging, when you are in the car and then takes this information and stores it without draining the battery and without using the other chip.
