i'm thinking about buying a new phone. im using iphone 5 now. the options are iphone 5s or xiaomi mi5(still waiting for its release in singapore) because they are about the same price now. wish i could just buy iphone 5SE but my budget's not up for that.
So, Iphone 5S or Xiaomi Mi 5 which one is better and why? Thank you.
AnonD-507427, 05 Apr 2016Both are good but performance wise iPhone SE is the best option because you get a flagship per... moreA 4 inch phone is only good for calling and texting. So high end hardware is not of much use. 5s was enough for people who wanted a compäct phone. Better buy is ip6 and 6s for the same price.
Pao, 05 Apr 2016Im a bit confused. I want the LG nexus 5x and Iphone SE. And i didn't know what to buy. Pls help meBuy Nexus 5x if you are into customizing your phone to the core such as flashing custom ROMs, custom Kernels, mods, XPOSED framework or even crazy, dual booting with some other OS etc. coz Nexus devices get a lot of love from android community and are easiest to root. If that's not your cup of tea or you are going to use the handset as it is shipped and rely only on official updates, I'd say go with SE, it's apple's flagship hardware minus some nifty features such as 3D touch and smaller form factor, at relatively non-premium pricing (by Apple standards off-course).
iPhone 5S is 2.5 years old already and it is still performing lightning fast. Apple A9 in the iPhone SE is definitely an upgrade over the A7 chip in the 5S, but in terms of real world usage, you will not notice much difference as both phones run super smoothly with the SE having lesser or no lags.
As for the camera department, a bump to 12MP is definitely welcomed. However, picture quality on the 5S is still very good and unless you're a super camera-eccentric person, you'll probably be happy with the 5S camera too. It takes excellent day to day photos and is still faster than most android flagships.
So is worth the upgrade from 5S to SE? I wouldn't say so.
The 5S still performs superbly for a phone released long ago. If apple implemented the 3D touch display in the iPhone SE, it will be a different story.
2.5 years and Apple could have done so much more to improve on a 4 inch iPhone. Not saying that the iPhone SE is bad in any sense, just that it is not worth the upgrade. If you're coming from Android, this will be a superb phone for you to try out.
However, if you're coming from the iPhone 5 or earlier models, I definitely would recommend you to upgrade to the iPhone SE or the iPhone 6S/6S plus. You'll notice the difference then.
***** Do get the 64GB model if you to take photos and download applications. The 16GB model has around 11GB usable space which is not up to today's standard anymore. 4K video wwould take up a lot of space and the 16GB option just do the job*****
Have ordered one today, love my iphone 5 absolutely hated the iphone 6 and on with ther screen breaking all the time and high cost to fix, also the phone was to big. About time Apple went back to a 4" phone. I was going to change to the Samsung until I heard about the SE.

Pls help meBoth are good but performance wise iPhone SE is the best option because you get a flagship performance in the compact size, I was also interested in Nexus 5x but when heard about the iPhone SE I changed my mind
Alex, 05 Apr 2016Is this a worth it buy? I heard that ios 9.3 has a bug? Fixed last week
AnonD-522443, 04 Apr 2016So basically iphone launches a phone 2× faster than the iphone 5s( a 2 year old phone) a... moreios platform is was and always will be better than android thats y people buy i phones if s7 runs on ios that will be the best smartphone of the century so friend try ur hands on any iphone u will know it.Am using iphone 6 awesome device and i have used sony z serie samsung s5 note 3 iphone is way better
