Apple iPhone 5
I'm using it for three years and it's an amazing phone. That design make it look modern for 2019. The only problem is the software update. iPhone 5 isn't compatible with newer iOS version. The last update is iOS 10.3.4 launched this year. On the gaming don't done it very well, but i played GTA 3 and GTA LCS on it and it works perfect, almost cannot see the lag. For an old phone these games runs too good. Facebook, YouTube and Messenger works good, it sems some lag but it's very usable, Instagram works perfectly for me. I use Safari for browsing and it's does it's job, i never have a problem with it. Wifi works relatively good but you need to stay aproach to the router to works perfect. On the mobile data with 4G is more faster than Wifi. Some apps in the App Store will not run on iOS 10 but the most will work. Battery life isn't relatively poor, i have 1300 mAh because of the wear level and it's last good. For more features i wanted to recommend jailbreak but it's crap. I jailbreak once and anytime i get in Safe Mode, with or without installing tweaks and to remove it you will need to perform a full restore. I don't know if jailbreak work on other iPhone 5 phones, i used H3lix to jailbreak and i cannot use the phone after. With iPhone 4, the Phoenix jailbreak runned like a charm, no problems with it. Camera on the iPhone 5 is very good. My friends always says that my phone does it's job for photos. I wanted to buy new iPhone, got scamed and i remain with my 5. I'm not gonna upgrade soon. I will use this phone until won't turn on, and if won't turn on, i will repair it and use again :)) . I'm from Romania, sorry for my bad english, i just say my opinion about this phone, hope will be useful for others.

I am having mine since 2012 I guess... After extensively using the 3gs, didn't jump into 4 & switched to 5 several months after it's lauched. Currently I am on 6, I bought it when 7 was already launched... Now it's time for me to jump again, it will be most probably the 11pro, since I feel I deserve it because I am still with 6 and not 7, 8, X, Xs nor Xr. I feel like I waited for 4 generations :)
Anyways, coming to 5; I am still keeping it for spare. For instance, today I am using it because the battery of the 6 died again -it has been replaced once-. The battery will be replaced one more time, until I get a new phone.
For me, the design & dimensions of 5 is the best among all iphones. I wish I had a new iphone with the exact dimensions of 5. Current trend is bigger screens, which does not fit with me...
I like playing "Real Racing" series since the day it first launched. 5's specs were quite capable for playing this game for hours, so it's an important benchmark for me. With a high quality battery -which would be able to endure a day on extreme weather conditions, such as ice cold winters- I would not think of switching to any other phone.
Probably the 5 will be with me for many years, as long as it continues to function properly.

Ordered a 16GB i5 locked to Vodafone UK for only £39.99 with a TPU Leather Case, Tempered Glass Screen Protector, Lightning to USB cable for a total of £44.22 (don't have a cable as I never have had an Apple product that needs the Lightning connector, only had the 30-pin for the 4 which is just an emergency phone). The 5 is able to run all my apps with good battery life and also has 1080p video recording which is important for me. The iPhone 5 was announced on my 9th birthday which is kinda cool. Never had an iPhone over 3.5". The 1GB RAM will be good enough for my use. iOS 10 is relatively new, so I can get a good experience and use an iPhone to its full advantage. Android will still be my primary OS though. In acceptable condition and coming in 5 days :)

Chanuka, 13 Jan 2019Isn't it useful for a secondary phone in 2019Yes, but not for a power user. I know the 5c (which has the same specs) is pretty slow on apps like snapchat
