I was forced into a purchase of the 5S last December after destroying my 4S. I was going to hold out for the 6 even though I didn't know what the 6 would be like. However, as I'm committed to the Apple ecosystem I purchased a 5S and for the past year really enjoyed it. My big mistake was only getting a 16GB capacity model. I did buy AppleCare for my iPhone 5S because I was paranoid after destroying my 4S (in a freak incident). I've not needed the AppleCare and I look after my belongings. My regret is that I didn't get a larger capacity phone. It is annoying never having enough space for my music/photos/apps etc... Today I won the auction on eBay a "Brand New" iPhone 5S 64GB unlocked in the UK. Now I'm slightly hesitant to believe it is a brand new model since they've been out of production for a couple of months but it could be re-conditioned and look new. I guess thats the risk one takes when using eBay. Question: Is there any way I can check if it is Brand New? How do you check battery cycles. Or is there any other tell tale signs for it not being a new phone? Any suggestions what to do if its clearly a used model and not brand new. Negative feedback isn't going to impact the seller too much I fear. Returns are not accepted. Any suggestions for filling the 64GB - do people rate the Olloclip for taking photos or is it a waste of time and money? I'm selling my iPhone 5S and looking at the prices on eBay I should get a decent amount of money given that it is unlocked and has AppleCare allowing for two replacements (under T&Cs). I did consider the iPhone 6 but just don't love the design and felt the advances where not enough for me to move from 5S which I like very much even though I agree the 6 is a superior model. It comes down to personal preference in the end.
