    To answer the thread question, it depends on the size of the apps you're downloading and therefore, we cannot answer that question precisely. In regard to the pros and cons of an iPhone 5S, my summary is below.

    Pros:

    Small design (depending on your preference)
    Easy to use interface
    Quality build
    Well-supported
    Access to tons of apps
    Powerful and fast

    Cons:

    Small design ( depending on your preference)
    You will need to utilize cloud services if you plan on keeping a lot of pics, videos & music on the device.
    The device debuted in 2013, I believe.

    Welcome to iMore! Just like @Just_Me_D stated it really depends. Apps vary greatly in size and it also depends on what else you plan on doing with your iPhone. 16 GB doesn't go very far these days, hence why Apple is no longer offering a16 GB model iPhone in its current iterations.

    It does depend , but I have 80 apps ( including Apple ones ,although I have deleted those from homescreen , excluding the non removable ones like Safari )

    This includes 1gb of Spotify downloads

    So you should get 75-80 apps , as you long as you keep backing photos up ( I recently cleared 6gb worth of the things ) , and keep the dreaded Facebook app off the thing , cause that gobbles up memory .

    I'd say Facebook is more of a battery hog than a memory hog.
