    So the 5s (or the s models) are the best versions right? So upgrading every s year or four always gets you the best iteration right? All reality, it is so dang good to be back on iOS! No matter what the version

    Went from the 5 to the 5s.

    Don't regret it, but won't do it again -- I wanted to have my home phone and my traveller to both be LTE-capable iPhones.

    Otherwise, iPhones make much more sense to upgrade on two-year cycles.

    Need advice, coworker is offering 5s 16gb gold for $400. Good deal or no?

    If it's in mint condition, that is an excellent deal...the carrier locked models in gold are still well over $500 on eBay and locally on Craigslist.

    You ARE the expert. What kind of condition is it in? Are there any scratches or burrs on the phone? At all? The only thing you really can't know is how many charge/discharge cycles the battery has been through (unless there's some method for determining that).

    Yeah. I think it has a tiny scratch on it but I saw him use it and I looked close and couldn't really see it. Plus it'll end up in a case. I'm not the naked type... With phones.

    He's owned it less than a month, I was around when he bought it. He's only selling it because he switched back to his other carrier for a family plan. As stated above, minor scratch but will be in a case.

    Man, take it and sell it for more.

    And make sure he doesn't sell it to someone else soon.

    Great deal. I paid 550 for a silver/white 16g on eBay. It was still factory sealed. 400 is a good price.

    $400 is a great price. I paid $480 for my Space Gray. To me any 5s 16gb from $500 or lower is worth buying if it's good condition. Because they cost more in other places like eBay , Craigslist , retail is $650 so $400 is good.

    I know you stated you don't need more storage than 16 GB so for you it's a great deal

    By the time I fill my phones, I've got a new one already that I'm eyeballing. I generally only keep my photos and music on my 64GB sad card in my N3. I have mostly have filled my iPhone with Cydia tweaks. LOL

    No need to be sorry the thread moved in that direction

    But keeping on thread topic is a standing Forum rule internet wide

    But I'm glad this thread turned positive

    Me??? Nothing. I didn't start the thread. I was being sincere when I said I lived the way the thread became positive. Not sarcastic.

    As this is my first iPhone, I'm not the least bit dissappointed (except for that bottom dock). I would take it over my current and previous devices any day of the week ...SMILE

    I can't see how you could possibly be disappointed. You have the best phone in the best colour.
