AnonD-650566, 19 May 2017a) iPhone 5s is still worth?
b) iPhone 5s vs Samsung Galaxy A3 2016?
c) iPhone 5s upgradable... morea) If used, it has great value. New ones are pretty expensive because it isn't produced anymore
b) Overall iPhone 5s because it is much faster and has longer update support, and it also has some other things because it once was a flagship so the company gave it everything they had with highest quality, while A3 only got some little things from the S6 because then, the S6 wouldn't be worth it anymore. But then, the A3 has the better design (slimmer bezels, glass back looks great even though it tends to crack but same goes for iPhones glass bars)
iOS 10: yes
iOS 11: 90% sure
iOS 12: possible because every S got an extra update (3GS was the first to have 4 years of support, 4s was the first to have 5 years of support)
iOS 13: probably not
iOS 14: impossible
d) It is still pretty good in 2017, in 2018 it will be average, in 2019 it will be usable but not good for most of the people, in 2020 it will definitely be time to upgrade
e) Apple stopped selling it in early 2016 when it was replaced by the iPhone SE as the new 4inch phone. Those you can buy are some leftovers, but they are pretty pricey because there aren't many available.
If you plan to buy it used on eBay, ok just buy a good one and be sure not to be scammed
If you plan to buy it new, better invest some extra dollars and get yourself the much, MUCH better iPhone SE. It will last you much longer and will also much longer stay fast. I mean it still beats most of the android competition (just a tiny bit slower than Galaxy S8), has a great camera with awesome video capabilities and in my opinion one of the most beautiful design ever made on an iPhone (in my ranking, 1. iPhone 4s 2. iPhone SE 3. iPhone 5s (worse apple logo and shining chamfers make it look a little bit less uniform, but that's negligible) 4. iPhone 7 (currently using, great evolution of the not-so-great-looking iPhone 6(s) design)
Hope I could help you
used: iPhone 5s
new: iPhone SE

aditya, 09 May 2017i am using jio sim in 5s. and i am unable to make and receive any calls.any solution for this bugBro 5s is LTE not VOLTE . Thus it needs an app jio4g voice which is unsupported in iPhone bec jio4g voice is android app and iPhone is iOS. So u can't make calls from it phone if u r using jio sim. No doubt u can use data if ambani allows ;-)
For those asking if it will getting iOS 11,
i suggest to DO NOT update this device if the iOS 11 is released,
Latest is not always the best and iOS 11 will slowdown this phone
Alip, 15 May 2017Is it worth swapping redmi 4 prime with iphone 5s in 2017?not really, wait until you can afford iPhone SE because that one is a real step up
I use since last year there is no any problem it is best go for it......camera is superb sound is good great phone.....
Anonymous, 13 May 2017i am planned to buy this phone in this year what is the common problem?? did it will get iOS 1... moreIOS 11 is almost safe for iPhone 5s. If you want to be sure, wait until 5th June when iOS 11 will be unveiled and when there will be a list of supported devices
