iPhone 5s, the Picaso from the Apple Inc., which brought the attention of everyone on this globe. With an amazing curved edges, the device rocked it sale with amazing figures. When Apple announced the device on September 2013, from then to today, it was one of the best selling devices in the market. But now, it became water under the bridge. So, one should avoid buying the device right now, even it is available for lower price.
iPhone 5s bundled with exact 4 inch touch screen display with Retina display, patented by Apple Inc., and supports resolution of 640×1136 pixels. The device comes with PPI of 326 and also powered by an Apple A7 processor, which is a 64-bit ARMv8 one, with One Gigabyte of RAM.
Here is the list of reasons why you should avoid buying iPhone 5s.
Display: Well, 4-inch display is not at all a bad one to consider for. But, the things have changed. We are living in an era of phablet phones and having a 4-inch display device will blow you, if someone have smartphone with 5.5 inch or 5.8 inches of display. Not only that, but nowadays devices are coming with better resolution and PPI, while compared to iPhone 5s. If you’ve used a large screen device in the past, and then if you’re opting for iPhone 5s now, will be a drastic nightmare for you.
Storage: Storage is one of the main criteria, which you should care about before buying it. The device comes with 16GB, 32GB and 64GB variants only. Also, you cannot extend the memory using an external memory card adapter. The latest models come with 128GB of internal on-board storage, which you should consider before buying iPhone 5s.
Processor: A7 chipset comes with iPhone 5s is quite older while compared to the processor present in iPhone 6s and would comes in upcoming rumored iPhone 7. Additionally, Motion coprocessor M7 is quite old one too.
1.2 Mega-pixel secondary camera: Even though, iPhone 5s comes with 8 mega-pixel of primary camera, it comes with only 1.2 mega-pixel of secondary camera, which is quite disappointing. The secondary camera performance is quite low, in terms of low light and also in indoor lighting.
1560 mAh Battery: Apple has already started to improve the battery capacity of the device, and also implemented improved battery in iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus. When compared to those devices, the battery capacity of iPhone 5s is very poor in performance.
Buying the device for much cheaper prices will be the best option on one side. But, if we compare other side, buying 3 years older device will another hectic, if the company stopped all of its support for the device.
