User opinions and reviews

Great phone! This was my first smartphone ever, I got it in December 2012 (they weren't that famous previously) and had it working well until late 2015.

Got one for free a few days ago, sadly the battery is swollen otherwise it's in mint condition

hands down the best iPhone I have ever had, great battery life (I don't think I've ever seen the low battery screen since I got it) and still good enough for basic use in 2019
