Yeh .if my xiaomi redmi broke I suppose I could get by with crap i6 ..maybe .. probably not .

Of course. This isn’t android, iphones get supported for many years. This model is over 4 years old and runs the latest iOS 11 and gets regular updates

False economy buying an iPhone that won't be supported soon.



What a load of nonsense.
I gave my gran an iPhone 4S years ago to use for non-phone functions ( it was locked to a Japanese network) she still uses it every day for BBC iPlayer Radio and for lots of apps that are very useful to her. ( including facetime)
She is very happy with it and has no complaints.

The phone in this deal is an utter bargain. The deal-temperature bears that out.

Good. Expect some scratches.

I was wondering is it not a bit too old now as well.

Yes and unlike Android you can’t downgrade either. I’m an iPhone user but there’s no denying that just because something like an iPad Mini 2 can run iOS 11, doesn’t mean you should or would ever want to- it runs like a dog on an Air 2 even. Only the A10 and A11-class devices run the latest OS fine.
How much does unlocking cost?

You seem to have misunderstood. I would sooner buy a crap redmi for 60 than a 5s to tide me over until buying a good phone. I’m waiting on the mi mix 2s going through the post release price drop.

E.g this one hotukdeals.com/dea…671

Although phones in that price bracket are crap and perhaps I would choose the 5s as a stop gap on second thoughts.

It supports iOS 11 but iOS 12 (which is coming in a couple of months) will not support it.
I bought a "good" 6s plus 128gb for £199 on the 20% off deal a few weeks back and it was perfect, battery 100% on the new apple health check and not a mark anywhere, and also still 1 month of apple warranty left on it as well as 12 months from Music magpie.

I also got another "good for my wife and it had a couple of scratches on the metal but apart from that perfect screen etc. Well pleased with the value from music magpie.

Won't you have to factor whether it's battery has been lowered by apples "updates"? Might have to send it to them to fix it.

It’s battery doesn’t get lowered, it’s the processing speed! This only happens with old and nearly depleted batteries anyway. You can turn that feature off in iOS 11.3.

The 'performance management' doesn't apply to 5s models.

Yeah if you’re ever going to get an IPhone returb this is the way to go, or watch out for the Argos manager specials. In these situations you’re getting the pristine Apple refurbs. Music magpie are simply giving old potentially battered phones a bit of a wipe over etc

Apple just dropped the 11.3 ios update on the 5S
This is a used 4 and a half year old phone, with limited ram that won't get any future iOS updates. I'd question how good the battery is after a near half a decades worth of use too.

You might as well spend £17.95 more and get an Xiaomi Redmi Note 5A, which is a lot more future proofed investment and will perform perfectly fine with a lot more demanding modern apps.

Or spend £10 less and get the Xiaomi Redmi 4A £60.52, either of those phones would be good for a couple of years and perform a lot better.

This Phone is still running the latest OS even though it's from 2013. Will likely only get another 1 major release; but still better than any android device regarding update potential

5S wasn't affected by this, only A8,9,10
Noah had one of these on his ark. He used it for navigation.

A9 as well.
adamkaty2 h, 31 m ago

A9 as well.


I’d say it’s on the edge, I reckon iOS 12 will push it over. I don’t have any A9-class devices to see first hand though. It’s probably more of a RAM limitation than anything else.
Yeah let’s forget the deal and just talk about Android vs Apple
