Today's 4th year anniversary owning my Iphone 5. Bought the Iphone 5 16gb on 2 years Maxis contract back in 27 Dec 2012. So far it's a reliable, tough (due to Glass screen protector and Targus Hybrid casing) and user friendly companion. Just updated to IOS 10.2. A bit laggy while playing Subway Surfers. Camera quality's decent but terrible at Low light shooting.
The Drawbacks, 16GB barely enough. Thanks to Google Photos, managed to backup and Spring clean my photos. Now left 500+/- MB storage. Battery replaced once Jan this year and OEM now shows sign of deteriorating. Overall rating 9/10. Highly recommended. But get AT LEAST 64GB.
Anonymous, 24 Nov 2016Mine lasts about 2 hours of gaming. Standby is infinite if you turn on power saving mode.hi what is the battery backup of 5s with wifi turned on
I have been using my iPhone 5 for about a year and it's still working pretty well. :) I got two dead pixels after battery replacement and iOS 10 became little bit laggy when it switches between keyboards. but hopefully overall performance is good. I love this iPhone.
Installed iOS 10.2. if you are on any other version of iOS 10 and don't Wait for a jailbreak, update immediately

I bought iphone 5 January 2016 first few months everything was great, but after 4 months its battery started swelling and dust got deposited on the back camera, screen was bulged out. I had never expected this much poor quality from apple.
This was not all, when i tried to get a replacement for the battery (since it was still under warranty), I came to know that its not under warranty anymore. I had the bill, i called apple support, they said they can't do anything I have to get a paid service.
Absolutely rubbish support from apple. Because of the battery problem my screen also got damaged. And the original replacement cost was 13500 for (LCD+touch panel), I mean what the ***k. My experience with apple is worse. I do not know what the god damn hell they charge so much money for if you can not provide a good customer service.
Southern Wind, 07 Dec 2016Just want to share how good this phone is; it's old but it has never given me any problem. My ... moreI finally upgraded to one from a 4s.... the 5 is all I'd ever need for the next few years. I don't play games - I guess then I'd recommend the 5s. But the 5 is sooooo goood for the current price!
Just want to share how good this phone is; it's old but it has never given me any problem. My phone is updated with the latest version 10.1.1 and the unit doesn't have lag issues. The only reason I'd replace this phone is when the urge to buy one with a 5.5" display kicks in :D
