    In all the threads discussing iOS 10.2.1 there is no talk about anything being bricked or anything even close to that. That kind of information is already out there.

    It's really hard to brick an iPhone. Essentially getting a device "Bricked" means it's impossible to get working again. Android phones mostly experience this because of incompatible software and hardware, it's usually done by the user applying modified ROMs/recoveries/etc. Apple wouldn't release software that is incompatible with their hardware.

    No one can say what your particular experience will be like, but based on the available feedback so far about the release it doesn't seem like there are any widespread or major or otherwise concerning issues. Pretty much the information that is already available in a few release feedback threads.

    Remaining on 9.3.5 doesn't necessarily make your device any faster either or more effiecient for that matter. Plenty of 5s owners have had positive experiences with iOS 10 and beyond. In due time, your 5s isn't necessarily going to perform any smoother than newer software updates. That not how it works.

    Did you read the posts above or research the forum? It's not some strange hypothesis. I'm assuming you didn't take the time to do so.

    What on earth makes you think the 10.2.1 update bricks an iPhone 5s?
    Has any previous update ever bricked your iPhone?

    I have an old 5s on 10.2.1 and it runs fine by the way

    No offence, but this is kind of a silly question. Obviously updating your phone is not supposed to render it inoperable. If by some misfortune it does, no one can predict it for you. It's like asking people if a plane is going to crash before you board it.
