If the phone does everything you want, then why not replace the battery and save the expense of a new phone.

I replaced the battery on my iPhone 5 last year for $100. No regrets. My other option was to buy a newer phone that I didn't need for $600 to $700.

I have a 5S that I still use today and the battery still lasts pretty much as if it were new. I did buy a SE last month to "replace" the 5S. It still looks the same but it's much faster and the battery lasts an amazingly long time and I did't have to pay $700 like I would if I bought a 7.
