I have I phones now for many years 3/4/4s/5/5s
I've loved them from the start but the 5/5s are a major let down.
The positives are there for all to see.
Great screen / processor / super for Internet games and surfing.
BUT and it's a massive but
1. The lightning leads are useless they can last 12 months or 12 minutes. In the last 2 years I've bought 10 yes 10!!!!!!!!!
2. If you want to use it as a telephone to make calls you are better off with 2 tin cans and apiece of string!
After 4 replacement handsets I'm still dropping calls all the time. If you ring someone else with the same phone expect the call to fail every call after a couple of minutes. Its not a network problem it's the phone according to Apple genius's.
3. People will call you and get the unobtainable tone even when your signal is full strength.
4. You will often never receive text messages sent to you so your friends will think you've fallen out with them.
The result of my 5/5s experience is my HTC One M8 arrives Monday and I can't wait to get rid of my 5s fast enough.
Before you buy or get a 5s I suggest you ask your friends who have them and I guarantee that have had the same problems.
