Since new models 5s/5c are out, is 5 worth to buy?
I think so. I bought an iPhone 5 earlier tonight for my daughter. It's basically the same as the 5c and for the price is a good deal. It's still a very fast phone. The one I got had 10 months left on the warranty and was in brand new shape for $350. In Houston, the 5 and 5c go for the same price on craigslist.
I love these types of threads.... what exactly do you want to hear?
If YOU think it's worth it then it is, if you don't then it's not. If you have specific questions comparing the two then sure, random strangers on the interwebs can help you. Simply asking is x worth it is a bit silly as you'll get a different answer from every one for different reasons. It's your money get what you want. IF you have specific questions ask those.
All I want is suggestion tho the decision is made up by myself alone.
Totally not worth it. Stay away!
It's up to you to decide. Last January I bought a 4S even though I could have bought a 5 for $99 more, just didn't think the 5 was a good upgrade from the 4S.
Only you can decide. I now own a 5S and still have my 4S.
Yes. If you like that design. The 5/5s design does nothing for me so I'm happy apple released the 5c. Had they not I would've stayed on the 4s. That said the iPhone 5 is a very good phone. Had Apple not went a different direction it would still be the middle tier. Obviously I'm glad they went in a new direction, but the phone is still good.
No way, why wouldn't anyone buy a phone that is over a year old? Gross, I mean, who does that???
Hey everyone that bought the 5C basically did it......I would still take a 5 over the plastic 5C.
No way! It's is not worth to buy.
Wait, it kinda is, I mean if you think about it, it's a totally great time to worth to buy.
No, it's not, I have thunk about it, not worth to buy at all.
Then clarify where you draw the line. We can't tell you if it's worth it to you or not. You need to tell us what would or wouldn't make it worth it to you. Again, worth is always highly subjective. You can't just randomly poll people to determine if something is worth it to you or not.
He already did.
Sure it is.
Buying a used phone can be a nightmare. I got a 5c from ebay. It looked spotless online and offline. But it as a bad IMEI. Not mentioned on Ebay. Luckily, I was able to return it. Buying on craigslist doesn't give you the same protection.
I would buy from a real retailer (carrier, apple). Or get a brand new cheap Android. If you get a used iphone, the imei could turn bad on you in a few months, leaving you out $300 and no phone.
I picked up one in october, it benchmarks slightly faster than the 5c and everyone thinks its the new one anyway. I got a great deal and its supers fast and the battery is much better than my 4s....
Depends on the price, I wouldn't pay more than 450 bucks for last years model ( new ) or 350 for a second hand unit.
