I remember using this and still use it to this day.
No problems at all although you gotta deal with batteries but no issues!
Auggiedoggy, 21 Jun 2020For example, I tried to install the duckduckgo app as my new browser and it wouldn't download ... moreIf I were I would download itunes 12.3.1 so i you can use the appstore there and when downloading you can download it alredy in the iphone 5 with the last compability thatss what I did☺️
The iPhone 5 should have been all glass from the back just like the iPhone 4 which would have been so cool but apparently Tim Cook made some changes
Anonymous, 17 Mar 2020Like what??For example, I tried to install the duckduckgo app as my new browser and it wouldn't download because it isn't supported by iOS 10.3.3. I also tried to download a weather app. Wouldn't download for the same reason. A banking app wouldn't download nor would a calculator app. There were others ... Having said that, for my requirements, the iPhone 5 and its pre-installed apps still make this a serviceable phone for me in 2020.
In recent months, when trying to send a text, there's a screen that appears which is divided in two into two boxes. One box is headed BUBBLES; the other box is headed SCREEN. The text appears at the bottom of a vertical list with 4 separate options re sending the text which remains at the bottom until somehow I can force the arrow the to top choice choice (LOUD, I believe) and there's no guarantee that the text will then be sent. What is the purpose of this?! How do I avoid it?
Great iPhone, used it from mid-2019 until early 2020, until I got a 6S.
Francis , 20 Apr 2020Very nice phone A phone that defend us from apocalypse is nice, not this

Orange, 25 Oct 2019Legendary device though, perfect size and width, easy to carry, 4G supported, excellent batter... moreMy iphone 5 battery dying soo fast.. I replaced it with new one.. it must be a copy or something.. not original I guess but nothing happens!!! It still dies faster.. Would uh suggest me to go to Apple store?
thanks i needed this for my work
It is a very useless phone because 1 if u use xender collect music and u delete the xender the musics will vanish the battery is not strong the phone sucks u will fe charging it every day and that is not normal if ur falls that is the End. I prefer Android phone more than iPhones if anyone buy iPhone the person will regret
alexandru456, 19 Sep 2019I'm using it for three years and it's an amazing phone. That design make it look modern for 20... moreI agree. The iPhone 5 has really stood its ground. My girlfriend is still using her iPhone 5 and it is now 6 years old, and it works fine. I just replaced the battery and it is as good as new. It is a bit laggy in some apps, that is her only complaint. But it works and functions well, and that is more than you can say about most smartphones today that's been in use for 6 years. The classic iPhone 5 aluminum body and glass design just withholds :)
FuDawara, 28 Oct 2019As a 13 year old in 2019 the iPhone 5 isn’t that great... But after using it for 2 years it st... moreTotally agree. I still don't like their notch phones from the iPhone X. The iPhone 5 was a perfectly designed phone, perfect size and good performance and good camera quality. The 4inch iPhone with aluminium body and glass front has always been my favorite iPhone design. Now I am totally happy with my iPhone SE because I wanted to hold on to the perfect form factor, but with upgraded internals. I really hope Apple will consider making a new 4 inch iPhone maybe just upgrade it with edge to edge touch screen with front camera under the front glass (no notch :D) and the Touch ID under the glass too :) That would be an awesome new upgrade :D
