Apple iPhone 5s, 5c, and SE How These iPhones Perform in 2018
Apple iPhone 5S,5C and SE Performance in 2018
Apple has just released its new iPhones for this year, namely the iPhone XR, XS and the XS max. With this line exceeding the $1,500 ceiling mark, it cannot be denied that the pricing has slightly put people off from buying these outrageously priced items. After all, why choose to upgrade to these devices when you can stick to practical and more affordable options, that offers better handling.
Take for example the iPhone 5s and its sisters, the 5c and SE. These devices have smaller dimensions, allowing users to easily grip them in one hand. A lot of users and gadget-enthusiasts find them preferable, but why? Let’s take a look at their specifications and find out.
Aside from their size, one of the things people consider when buying these devices is their chipsets and CPUs. The 5s is equipped with Apple A7 which offers a significant boost in power as compared to its other unlocked refurbished phones at this price range. Paired with the Cyclone CPU core, which was a ground-breaking development at the time, this makes the 5s one of the best contenders of its time. the 5c carries a less powerful yet battery-efficient chipset, which is the Apple A6. As compared to these two, the SE has a few generations’ headstart with its A9, which the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus also have. Benchmarks show that the SE performs better in most aspects as compared to the other two.
With the efficient use of memory thanks to the processors, these phones are able to work smoothly even with 1GB RAMs (applicable to the 5s and 5c). These two also have a maximum internal memory of 64 and 32GBs, respectively. On the other hand, the SE proves to be superior when it comes to computing memory as it has 2GB RAM, which can be paired with up to 128GBs of internal memory.
As these phones are popular because of their sizes, it is necessary to lay out the differences in dimensions of these three. The 5s and SE have dimensions of 123.8 x 58.6 x 7.6 mm, whilst the 5c is slightly bigger with 124.4 x 59.2 x 9 mm. However, these offer displays that are proportional to their size. All of them sport 4-inch screens. For the 5s and the SE, the screen-to-body ratio rests at around 60.8%, whilst the 5c has almost 59.9% ratio, making them some of the smallest iPhones in history and you can find many great mobile phone deals for them.
Why are they best sellers?
These units are bestsellers precisely because of their size. Customers are opting for a cheaper device, which offers an optimal grip that these devices fulfill. This prevents frequent slips and falls, whilst still showing off premium body design and material. These also do not sacrifice power and performance, as these sport innovative chips of their time making them the best Apple refurbished device to go for if you're not a power user and on a budget. Combined with the affordable price points, the 5s at $159, the 5c at $129, and the SE at $249 are still the best-selling units for consumers in Australia looking for a pocket-sized device running iOS 12.
