Apple iPhone 5s is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 664.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good I bought this on the 1st july 2016- year ago and it was very good value as iPhones are normally more expensive. But lately when I go onto snapchat or text, it blacks out for a minute than flashes on the apple logo. I don't know what has happened and I don't know the warranty for this product , if you know, please tell me. customer service is great !!!! The man working said I could get 75% off any of the phone cases I wanted , thanks !! Overall this is a good product, but not 4 star quality

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Foul Build Quality!!! I brought this phone last year in July and only 2 weeks later there was a fault. The fault was that the screen was bending and if you pressed into the corners it will bend. Secondly there is a design fault with the camera when moved suddenly there is a massive ratterly noise inside the camera. I know this because I went into the shop and carphone warehouse said they could nothing about it. Furthermore, the phone is so fragile with a front facing speaker which if had minor damage will crackle. Overall I had come from a Sony phone which was very good and upgraded to this phone and I was that I never did
