  • Back in 2012, there was a revolution in smartphone technology that came in the form of the iPhone 5. It was still very small in a market when manufacturers were releasing 5-inch devices, but its performance and attributes kept it through the competition and even beat most of the flagships released that year.

    Simply looking at the device at a glance and holding it in your hand will show you premium quality in design and build. But you only get the true sense of the iPhone 5’s strength when you power on the device and start swiping. Small in size and extremely light, this device is capable of handling anything thrown at it, despite its release date.

    In a market where devices are enormous in size and have multiple processor cores, Apple exemplify simplicity. They have refined their operating system to work efficiently even with less processing power so that it can keep up with the user’s demands.

    Simply put, this is the device for the individual who prefers simplicity over complexity, yet still getting every bit of use from their smartphone. It’s a device you can feel comfortable operating in one hand all the while feeling every bit as premium as a 5-inch device.

    There is still a lot going for the iPhone 5, and only a look at the device’s specs could show you that.

  • ARE NEW ZEALAND OR INTERNATIONAL MODELS DIFFERENT IN ANY WAY?

    International models are brand new, genuine products. You may notice very minor differences when compared with local models, however, all international models are supplied with an Australia/New Zealand compliant generic charger and are perfectly suited for use in Australia or New Zealand

    WHY CHOOSE DIRECT IMPORT?

    By cutting out all the middlemen, we’re often able to sell the world’s biggest and best brands (like AppleSamsung and Huawei) for significantly cheaper than local retailers.

    WHY ARE PRICES SO LOW?

    Being an online-only retailer allows us to cut unnecessary costs and keep costs down. We’re able to bypass agents, importers, wholesalers and distributors that are usually part of the retail process. By cutting out these expensive middlemen, we can pass the savings onto you, where they belong! It also means that we avoid the many costs involved with running bricks and mortar stores, resulting in even more savings for you.

    WILL DELIVERY TAKE LONGER?

    In most cases, the delivery will be within 2 working days. However, for some models, it can take between 10-14 days. Please always feel free to check with the support team on delivery times if you are unsure.

    DO DIRECT IMPORT PRODUCTS COME WITH A WARRANTY?

    Of course! All of Callcom’s direct import products are backed by a 1 Year Standard Care Warranty for your total shopping confidence and peace of mind.

     

  • Design

    On a first glance, there's very little to tell this smartphone from the iPhone 5. However, the iPhone 5s remains a beautifully made and desirable smartphone and it's an improvement on its predecessor in practically every way. Apple doesn't skimp on premium materials here, as the metal body and Gorilla Glass covered screen still look and feel fantastic.

    iPhone 5S Volume Buttons

    It's not just the materials, but the attention to detail that catches the eye. Its precision-cut aluminium rear sits absolutely flush with glass panels that sit at the top and bottom. The smartphone's neat bevelled edges are perfectly formed and the 7.3mm thick phone feels incredibly comfortable in the hand. Weighing just 112g, which still feels almost impossibly light when you pick up the smartphone for the first time, the iPhone 5S is incredible to look at and hold.

    The iPhone 5S is hard-wearing, too, thanks to its tough aluminium body. We've been carrying our one around since launch and, aside from the odd minor scratch (mostly around the bezel), it looks as good as the day it was taken out of its box. We keep the phone in a sleeve case to protect the sides and screen, but the quality is still impressive to behold.

    iPhone 5S Rear

    If you're coming from a large-screen Android phone, the iPhone 5S does look a little small, but for all practical purposes it's still a great size. It fits easily in one hand, letting you use it with just your thumb, while you can put it comfortably in any pocket.

    iPhone 5S vs Samsung Galaxy S5

    The white model is the same as the iPhone 5, but the iPhone 5S is also available in space grey, which replaces the 'black' model of last year and has a purer grey case than the iPhone 5's blue-grey model. It's the gold edition that's really different, though. Pictures don't do it justice, as it tends to look quite garish, but in the flesh the champagne gold finish is altogether more subtle and classier.

    Gold model aside, the biggest issue of the iPhone 5S's looks is that to the untrained eye it doesn't look as though you've bought a new phone, although Apple has at least eased the burden by taking the iPhone 5 off sale, replacing it with the plastic iPhone 5C instead.

    iPhone 5S TouchID

    There is one big clue that the phone you've got is the iPhone 5S: the metal-rimmed home button, which no longer has the familiar-looking square icon in it. As you're no doubt aware, this is the brand-new fingerprint reader, Touch ID. With Touch ID, rather than having to tap in a PIN to unlock your phone, you can simply hold your finger over the sensor. If that sounds like a gimmick, it's not: it's actually a brilliant time saver and something that helps enforce security.

    Camera

    Although Apple still maintained an 8MP camera similar to its predecessor, they introduced new technology that made the new camera way better. By increasing the pixel size to 1.4 microns and the aperture to f/2.4, the camera could take better pictures in low light because more light could be detected. To date, this camera can still be used for general pictures, but you wouldn’t want to use them commercially due to the low pixel count.

    Body

    Apple got everything right with the design, the 4-inch display comfortable fits into an aluminium body. At the back, there is glass at the top and bottom to allow for network signals, but these are usually the first to crack upon impact. Nevertheless, the iPhone 5 feels premium in the hand and certainly one device you wouldn’t mind holding for a long time. At the bottom, Apple did away with the thick 12-pin connector and replaced it with a smaller, reversible connector.

    Features

    Running everything is the Apple A6 chip which is capable of handling ‘heavy’ apps. However, it’s still a 32-bit processor yet more and more apps are being tailored to the new 64-bit processors. This means you may have a little trouble running the latest apps and games, but not so much.

    Storage

    You can get this device in 16GB, 32GB and 64GB variants; choose wisely here, because there is no expandable storage and what you get is all you will ever have. The RAM is also quite small at 1GB, but iOS has never needed much RAM and the device still runs very smoothly.

    Battery

    The battery on the iPhone 5 is quite small, 1,440mAh, but for a 4-inch device it’s still enough. However, iPhones don’t have the best record with battery life, and this one isn’t any different, you would be lucky to get through the day without recharging, but guaranteed you would have to charge the device every single day.

  • All our products are genuine and authentic, and to put money where our mouth is, a year’s long warranty is applicable for any product bought from Callcom. This is to recognize that sometimes things may go wrong but because the customer ‘s needs are always put first; we will go the extra length to ensure you get what you paid for.

    Standard warranty

    This is the basic type of warranty automatically applied to all products. It covers issues of faulty items within the period of the warranty and any replacements or repairs done will be free of charge.

    If the item stops working after some time, contact us immediately for support. Some issues can be quickly solved by our technical staff over the phone in which case further assistance isn’t necessary. If not, send the product to us via mail if you are far away or bring it yourself to our office.

    Repairs may take time if the parts are not available locally but most of the time the repairs only take a few days. Once completed, we will contact you to collect the product or just mail it back to you.

    When you receive your product and it doesn’t work, this is classified as a dead-on-arrival situation. In this case, return the product back to us within 7 days since purchasing it and receive an immediate replacement.

    Extended warranty

    For further protection, an extended warranty covers more problems for added peace of mind. A 6-month extended warranty costs $50+gst and covers problems that may occur as a result of normal usage. These may include:

    1. Wear and tear coverage: it’s easy to distinguish a new device from a used one based on the external wear signs. Further wear and tear occurs inside as a result of dust and moisture, which may lead to problems down the road.
    2. On-site service: for bulky items, we come to you and offer our services hence saving you time and money.
    3. No lemon guarantee: if you have already had the product repaired 2 times, the next time you face a problem, we will replace the entire product and avoid future problems.
    4. $1,200 replacement: for repairs costing upwards of $1,200, the item will just be replaced with the same exact specifications to save time.
    5. Countrywide coverage: this warranty offers you guaranteed service from any service centre or repair technician across Australia provided they deal with electronics.
    6. Transferrable: this warranty is transferrable in case you sell it of give it away. Just remember to send us a proof of transfer such as a receipt and contacting our customer care service team.
    7. Health check: just like a medical checkup, you can send the product to us to examine any possibilities of an error with the parts.

    Exceptions

    There are still some exceptions that may not be covered by this warranty, and you can find the complete list here.

  • Excellent working phone renovated to operate with parts in compliance with AU codes. (see our warranty policy for further information). Our friendly staff will take care of you right away.
