Even cheaper than GiffGaff, heat!

Isn't this the phone equivalent of two coke cans and a piece of string?

Remember iSheep; If your beloved phone happens to break, don't get it repaired at an unofficial repairers!

Apple will find out and remotely brick your phone!

Got to be at least the 32gb for this price for me. Heat cause it's the cheapest around but 16gb is too hard to live with these days.

Hmmm.. I have this and still a great phone. But should really be 32gb at this price. My 16gb constantly nags me about space and is my only regret.

2.5 year old model with nominal gb they certainly hold their value

Apple are prats, even the moron way they announce things,get a feckin grip!

is that for real lol

it's crazy they really do hold there value, I just sold a very battered two year old one for £150. once your in the apple eco system you can use the sale of your old phone to offset the cost of the newest model

I wouldn't pay anything over £150 for a 5S that this point. Very outdated phone. Go on eBay and get a used one in decent nick instead if you want a phone this old imo.

Haha, got to love Apple and their arrogance.

"In the UK, a barrister told the Guardian that Apple’s “reckless” policy of effectively killing people’s iPhones following the software upgrade could potentially be viewed as an offence under the Criminal Damage Act 1971. The act makes it an offence to intentionally destroy the property of another."

Yephttps://news.google.com/news/section?q=apple+error+53



Apple...? "Arrogant"...? Surely some mistake.

its to do with the home buttons fingerprint scanner.. not cracked screens etc in general

I'd rather a few cheap skates get their phones bricked rather than exposing a security vulnerability with the TouchID sensor where someone can steal my data or fingerprints.

One of the (relatively) small screen old ones: 4".

Because someone could easily swap the fingerprint sensor in your phone without you noticing couldn't they. (_;)

£240 from O2, cold.

Cold... it's a iPhone

Value for money . . . . cold

Walled garden so you give up your freedom of choice on this phone . . . . .cold

Is it a good deal ? . . . . Yes when compared to what you pay elsewhere . . . . . so had to vote hot

But wouldn't want one at any price unless I could sale it for a profit.

Cheaper buying from local Facebook selling pages.

£279 for a 2.5 year old phone with only 16gb storage which you'll lose most of when it updates to the latest version of iOS?

No doubt my fans will accuse me of "attention seeking" for agreeing with this - despite the fact they don't seem to be accusing anyone else who doesn't fall for crApple nonsense of this - but yeah, it's comforting having a decently priced, decently spec'd phone, and clocking Samsung, Apple, Apple, Apple, Samsung, Apple, Samsung. I bet most Iphone users don't even know WHY they even bought one - but more than likely some commission-hungry salesman fed them the usual crap "yeah it does cost a lot but they really are the best". Well.....that's technically nailed it then eh. As for the "investment" crap - you're buying a phone, not a Picasso. Thinking that you're at some 'advantage' just because someone will pay to 'offset' the cost of a new one, when buying a brand new Android phone will cost you even less than the price you'll pay AFTER off-setting it by selling your iphone.......well.....have fun with that knowledge...

Same price in Carphone Warehouse or Currys if you want to buy from the high street (or get John Lewis to price match).

Just upgraded mine to 6s the 5s seems so bulky and dated compared to this.

Only applies to the Touch ID sensor and for good reason. No point in making a secure system just to allow any theif on ebay to buy a £5 off the shelf sensor and bypass it.

I'm sorry, but this is a complete non issue.

Moronic comment of the day, congrats.

All the pathetic apple bashing that goes on here is embarrassing. I can just imagine the 12 year old kids sitting behind their keyboards because mummy can't afford to buy them one.

Haha so true. My 12yo cousin bashes Apple after 3 years of trying to get one for Xmas. Now he has a £40 android phone and hates it

krisward7955

No. Just no



​Yes just YES.
If it's true you know what,it's true!

The cost of a top of the range android phone compared to an iphone is pretty close, my wife got a 6s for under 30 a month with tons of data and minutes in December. And there was a deal yesterday getting you a 6s for under £30 a month. Sony, Samsungs android, flagship offerings cost exactly the same on contract at places like carphone warehouse.

the Neckbeard Fanboys behaviour from users like chasolo, elevation and rodger really is sad but im sure most on here realise these are just phones it really is sad how some people get so worked up by them, that they have to troll every post.

You can always guess what the comments are going to be as soon as you see an Apple related post; many a genius jump in happy to relay to you that the device is far inferior to what they have (despite them never owning an Apple product), happy to call you a sheep/fanboy/idiot for buying a device which isn't the same as theirs. Tales of how evil a corporation Apple is and how they are controlling your mind into buying their products. (because all other tech companies are ethical, fair trading philanthropists.)

We get it, some people don't like Apple products and their company ethos and some people do like the products and prefer them to other brands, so please spare us your predictable diatribe. Like all the posts on HUKD, if it's not for you and you don't think its good value, hit the magic cold button and scroll on. Make a comment if you feel you have a constructive comment to make about the deal/product that will be helpful to others, but please stop boring everyone with your personal opinions and insults.

THAT PRICE FOR A 5S??? FOR GET ABOUT IT & ONLY 16GB!! APPLE LOVE TO RIP PEOPLE OFF!

Apple worshipper right there ^^^^.

Non issue? A simple google search of 'Error 53' will tell you it's a very big issue, AKA Class Action Lawsuit sort of size.

My £120 5.5", Full HD IPS, Octacore Android phone has a fingerprint sensor. Pray tell, how is a thief going to swap it out without me noticing? Break into my house at night, find my phone, then perform a Fingerprint Sensor transplant before disappearing into the night?
