  • iPhone 5S was Apple's first smartphone with the Touch ID fingerprint home button and a 64-bit processor when it launched in 2013.

    It was also the last new iOS phone to feature a smaller 4-inch screen, at least until the iPhone SE came out in 2016.

    Today's 4.7-inch iPhone 7 and 5.5-inch iPhone 7 Plus are meant for people with larger hands and bigger wallets. Thankfully, you can still find the iPhone 5S through online retailers at a discount. Let's see if it's still relevant.

    When it was first unveiled, the iPhone 5S looked a lot like the iPhone 5, even though it went much further under the hood. We'd been there before with the iPhone 'S' conundrum: a new phone comes along, taking the shell of the previous model, adds some new bits and pieces, and then claims to be an entirely new phone – and we've just seen it again with the iPhone 6S and even the iPhone 7.

    Which it was, of course. But also wasn't. Well, mostly was. It's the kind of move that only Apple can pull off with any kind of conviction: the notion that it can take the same chassis, have a little tinker, throw in a new CPU, slightly better battery and camera, and call it an all-conquering device.

    The jump from the iPhone 5 to the iPhone 5S was nowhere near as significant as the leap to the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus – Apple's handsets changed notably inside and out at that point, and their release should give you serious pause if you're looking at buying an iPhone 5S right now.

    iPhone 5S

    The 5S started out as an expensive smartphone, even on monthly plans, although thankfully the price has fallen considerably as the handset has gotten older.

    You can find it pre-owned for as little as $250 in the US (about £200, AU$330) at SIM-free prices. That beats the last official list price from Apple that had it at£379 (US$450, AU$749) for 16GB, and £419 (US$499, AU$829) for 64GB.

    If you want a larger capacity iPhone, you'll want to either look for second hand models of the iPhone 5S, or make the leap to the iPhone 6S  or iPhone 7, the latter going all the way up to 256GB if you're willing to spend a lot of money.

    iPhone 5S review

    For its time though, the 5S was a big jump forward, and it's still in credit now: whether it's the Touch ID home button (which is excellent, more on that later), the jump in CPU power over its predecessor, the fact the camera was, once again, improved, or the new iOS 10 software it's now running, the iPhone 5S saw Apple attempting to bring as much as it could to the party without having to redesign the whole concept all over again.

    There are many that think releasing the same design twice is cheeky, and there are others who realize that sometimes there's no need for change. It's easy to fall into the former camp, and while Apple will happily point out it's not forcing anyone to buy its phones, it's acutely aware the competition is now scarily strong and it needed to bring its best to stay relevant.

  • 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?

    WILL DELIVERY TAKE LONGER?

  • Design

    The final design of the iPhone 5s clearly shows that this was something Apple clearly had in mind. Everything from the brushed aluminium back and sides to the chamfered edges and precisely cut buttons indicate the utmost in premium design. You will experience this device as a work of art from the moment you first hold it in your hand, and won't want to put it down.

    Display

    The 4-inch display at the front clearly shows the power of Apple's retina display technology from its colour reproduction. All media and text is crispy and even holding the phone really close to your eye won't reveal any jagged edges on the icons. This clarity is still evident at any angle, and we very much like the icon styles and colours used. It truly is a pleasure to look at.

    Processing power

    The use of a 64-bit processor was certainly a good move because it can handle a lot more tasks at the same time, including the more resource-intensive games and apps. It truly packs a big punch, and with a 1GB DDR3 RAM can switch between open apps with ease.

    A secondary motion co-processor was also introduced in the iPhone 5s, and this enabled the device to sense motion including steps, counting them as you walk and providing a summary of your activities. It also saved battery because it could determine when the phone wasn't being used and go to 'sleep'.

    Although this may look like a lot, the cohesion between these features ensured a smooth and efficient experience when the phone was on or off.

    Camera

    Dual-LED flash was the long-awaited solution to overexposed photos taken in the dark. By using a regular white light and amber flash, tones would remain natural and retain their quality even in complete darkness. This backed by an 8MP iSight camera ensured every picture was superb regardless of the time of day.

    Why we still love it

    As a revolutionary product, the iPhone 5s sets an example to all smartphones in the market today and is a testament to what extensive research, development and innovativeness can do to the industry. This is still a favourite device for anyone to own and we believe you will like it too.

  • 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.

    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.
