The iPhone 5 is the sixth generation smartphone from Apple, following the iPhone 4s. This phone was released in 2012 and had major design changes from iPhone 4 and 4s.
The iPhone 5 has an aluminum based body that is thinner and lighter than previous generation iPhones. The screen is taller as well, with a 16:9 aspect ratio. This phone was updated to Apple’s A6 system-on-chip, and has a newer, more compact dock connector. The rear camera remained the same as in the fifth generation: an 8MP Sony camera. The front camera was upgraded to 1.2 MP and had HD video.
Purchasing a refurbished iPhone 5 has many benefits including the price and the warranty. The price of a refurbished iPhone 5 is much more affordable than buying a brand new phone. By accepting a pre-used phone, you can benefit from getting a phone that has been factory reconditioned to be like a new phone on the inside, even if there are a few signs of wear on the actual body of the phone.
All refurbished iPhone 5 phones are warrantied to be free of defects. This means that you can buy with confidence, knowing that your phone will work as it should. However, if the phone doesn’t work as it should, you can get it fixed at no cost to you by filling out a warranty claim.
Benefits of buying a refurbished iPhone 5:
Factory reconditioned phone
Phone comes with warranty against defects
Less expensive phone with same benefits as new phone
A new phone is fun to buy, but it’s not as much fun as a refurbished phone. While a new phone comes all boxed up and packaged nicely, it also comes with a hefty price tag. A refurbished iPhone 5 allows a user to have all the fun that they would with a new iPhone without spending quite as much money, which some would say is more fun.
The iPhone 5 features a user interface based on direct manipulation. Users can swipe, pinch, reverse pinch, and tap. Users can even shake the device or rotate it vertically to undo a recent command. This phone shipped out with the iOS 6 operating system. This sixth generation iPhone has the ability to act as a hotspot, which allows it to share its internet connection over Bluetooth, WiFi, or USB.
All features available in the iPhone 5, including the ability to play movies, music, and watch television shows, are available in the refurbished iPhone 5 as well. You might consider saving money by buying a phone that has been factory reconditioned instead of spending more money for the same features in a new iPhone 5.
