I am using iPhone 5s iOS 11 Public beta 8, received update from Sep 1, 2017. So far I use it overall is good. There were some change in icon apps, like iCloud app (it renamed with Files now, and the shape is like file manager). There also new app name, Feedback. This Feedback app is a place for users report bug, problem, they found along using iOS 11 beta.
Menu Settings also gets little change, has new name menu, named Shutdown, highlighted by blue text. In the assistive touch menu, there are 2 new extras: SOS and restart. They are good offer I think, so users can do restart their iPhone without pressing power on/off buton.
Siri icon is changed too, looks beautiful. Works fine when I tried. First, I upgraded my iPhone from iOS 10.3.3 to iOS 11 Public beta because I got twice random shutdown when I was on the way by motorcycle. It shutdown itself and I should press and hold power on/off + home button together for more than 5 seconds to make the phone wake up.
First version I get from iOS 11 Public beta was 4. It had many problems, like Contact got hang if I highlight one of name from Contacts, Siri didn't work everytime I told on my phone, screen rotation didn't work and Contact search menu didn't appear any suggestion name. But all of these problems had been removed in iOS 11 Public beta 5. After several days the ipdate of iOS 11 Public beta is keep up to date, given by Apple, beta 6, beta 7 and first September this year Public beta 8. I am so excited so far that Apple so support its iOS.
Like I said before, overall the phone works very well, no problem found. Let's what the next update, would it be still iOS 11 beta or final iOS 11.
If you would like to try iOS 11 Public beta, just go to Apple beta program website, sign in with your Apple ID, and click enrolled device from Safari, from there you will download Apple Beta Profile, installs it, after reboot, go to Settings, About, Update software, there will be new update appear. Download it and wait the phone finished booting.

Eliot , 08 Apr 2017I am a huge fan of the iPhone 5s because it is an affordable iPhone. But scince it is 2017 now... moreYes iPhone SE is still expensive. Maybe, if you have an credit card that support for payment installation per month 0%, it would cheaper than pay full payment.

AnonD-679584, 24 Jun 2017Very useless! Nothing you can do better with small screen and single sim only!The 4" inch screen yes not good for typing, streaming and gaming, but the specs are still good for daily use, almost no hang, it is still fast.

I am a huge fan of the iPhone 5s because it is an affordable iPhone. But scince it is 2017 now and I just realized that apple does not carry iPhone 5s' anymore because of the SE i am very sad and I really want to buy the iPhone SE but it is too expensive and if apple still carried the iPhone 5s I would be so happy, so now I am going to cry in my bed because I just found this out. 😭😭😭😭
Pretty harsh review, for a phone which I consider as the biggest upgrade in the iPhone lineup compared to it's predecessor.
