iPhone 5s in 2016

With the launch of many other variants of iPhones like the iPhone 6 , iPhone 6s and the latest addition of the iPhone family the iPhone SE. There’s always a question if it is okay  to invest in iPhone 5s in 2016.

From my point of view i’d say going with the iPhone 5s in 2016 is the best and here’s why i say :

  • The support – To be honest, the iPhone 5s supports the latest version of iOS. You can experience the same thing the others experience on their high end device in the iPhone 5s in 2016.
  • The hardware – From the hardware point of view, iPhone 5s in 2016 is a nice piece of hardware and has pretty good specs. The A7 chipset in iPhone is much faster and stable when compared to the Snapdragon 615 chipset.
  • The price – The iPhone 5SE price in 2016 is $399 for the 16 GB variant whereas the price of iPhone 5s in 2016 is as low as $299. But when the pricing of iPhone comes to India, its totally different and the iPhone SE costs as much as Rs.40,000 INR and iPhone 5s costs as low as Rs.15,000-20,000 INR which is considered to be as the budget range for the Indian users. There are various rumors that the price of the iPhone 5s will even go down in 2016 as soon as the iPhone 5SE comes to the Indian market.
  • The difference – The iPhone SE will come with the NFC chip to facilitate the support for Apple pay whereas the iPhone 5s doesn’t have the NFC support.  And you can see the difference between iPhone 5s and iPhone 5SE[supsystic-price-table id=12]

Conclusion :

There might be lots and lots of people objecting this. But from my point of view, investing in iPhone 5s in 2016 is not even a bad decesion at all. Look wise, it looks the same as the iPhone 5SE. And the resale value of the iPhone’s are pretty good too when compared to the other iPhones out here.
