Price History

The trade-in price history of iPhone 5 16GB generally shows a decline. In other words, the used prices of this device are dropping as newer models come to market. It is only very rarely that a second-hand electrical device will increase in price; this usually happens for example if it's a collector's item. Therefore if you are looking to sell your iPhone 5 16GB then it probably makes sense to do it sooner rather than later - before the next price drop.

About Apple iPhone 5 16GB?


At it's time of release, the iPhone 5 was considered the best iPhone yet. And after many months of speculation following the release of the iPhone 4S, Apple fans were not disappointed. The iPhone 5 is the sixth generation of iPhone, and although is considered obsolete by Apple today, it's still a highly popular smartphone and has plenty of useful features.


Design

The iPhone 5 was probably the most popular iPhone to date in terms of design. When you first pick it up the first thing you notice is how light it is in the hand compared to other smartphones from the same era - especially Android devices. The chassis has been designed for strength, so despite being light it still feels solid in the hand. One of the best things about the size and weight of the iPhone 5 is how well it fits into almost any pocket. This is a feature that seems to have been long forgotten in the world of smartphones. The iPhone 5 was the first iPhone to be able to facilitate a 4-inch screen, and as a result it is slightly taller than the previous version of the iPhone. Despite this, it's still easy to navigate around the phone while using one hand - a desirable feature on any phone. The materials themselves are tough which means that you're likely to do less damage in the unlikely event that you drop your phone on the floor. 



Performance

One of the main selling points of the iPhone 5 after the design was the performance. For such a small smartphone, it certainly packed a punch. In addition to the 4-inch retina display, the iPhone 5 was the first device to feature the Apple A6 processor, which offered twice the performance of the previous A5 chip.

In addition to a revamped processor, the iPhone 5 also had a great arsenal of cameras. Like previous iPhones, the iPhone 5 featured two different cameras - one on the back and one on the front. The rear camera was capable of taking 8-megapixel photos, which is still considered as a good quality photo today. And thanks to the brand new A6 chip that the iPhone 5 featured, it meant that the camera could sport Apple's new Sapphire lens. According to Apple, photos captured with this technology are more faithful to the true colours of the original image and are captured up to 40% faster. They are also supposed to be clearer in low-light situations. The iPhone 5 was also the first iPhone to support he panoramic photo function, which - using software - is able to take panoramic photos of up to 28 megapixels in size. The front camera was also substantially improved over the front camera on the iPhone 4S. The front facing camera on the iPhone 5 can take 1.2-megapixel photos in 720p HD.


In addition to the software upgrade and much improved camera, the iPhone 5 was also the first iPhone to see the following features:


  •           Passbook
  •           Apple Maps, which include turn by turn GPS navigation
  •           Improved features for Siri    
  •       Do Not Disturb feature
  •          FaceTime over cellular networks
  •        Integration of Facebook


Overall, the iPhone 5 was a giant leap forward in terms of both performance and design for the iPhone. As a result, over 8 million iPhones were sold in the three days after it was launched, and in total over 70 million have been sold worldwide.
