    Recently my phone gave out and I need a new phone that will last me a bit. Initially I searched craigslist, but I don't trust it. I have metropcs and took a look at their website to find that the iPhone 5s is only $150. Now, it's not that I don't have 600 bucks or so to put into a good phone, it's just that I don't want to. I'm not ridiculously into phones as much as everybody. I just use it for email, light browsing if I have to, snapchat which is why I like Iphone's cameras and that's about it.

    I just find no point in spending a lot for a phone. At the same time, I have other hobbies that I pay for which cost me a lot of money, so it doesn't make sense to put that much money into a phone for me.

    Now, the 5s was released 3 and a half years ago which is a while, but it is still a decent phone. My concerns are the following.
    Apple leaves their old phones behind. Eventually the 5s will no longer receive support. Does it make sense to buy it in 2017? As far as specs go, for $150 I can't think of a phone better than the 5s, if you can please tell me.

    My other concern would be just that. is $150 a good price for a new 5s? Are there better phones out there?

    I also do prefer smaller phones, and I'm sure I'll get the SE as a suggestion, but again I'm not too willing to drop 300 on a phone..although that's much more possible than dropping 600+

    iPhone 5s has been released for years, and Apple may won't support is soon.

    consider about your output on phones, iPhone SE may be also a good choice for you. it's released in 2016, and with new tech.

    and the price for it is not higher, so you can consider about it as well.

    The short answer is "no"! I mean, it would be a big deal to you if you had a really really old phone and is moving up to an iPhone 5s, but if not I would definetly try going for an iPhone 6 and higher.

    I don't think so.

    Although the price for iPhone 5s will be very cheap, but it won't be supported by Apple soon.
    If the budget for an iPhone is limited, i recommened you iPhone SE and iPhone 6, which works much better and the price is also low.

    when you want to recover your lost iPhone data with or without backup, you can come to iRefone for help.

    it can help us recover our lost data with three recovery mode, that is Recover from iOS Device, Recover from iTunes Backup and Recover from iCloud Backup.
