Anyone out there in the community still rocking the 5s? Still love it? Sticking with it or are you going to upgrade in the near future?

I still have one. The lightning port is slowly dying though. I still like the form factor and it still works well for what I use a phone for. Been debating what to replace it with long term. Either a SE or 6s. Or I might wait until fall and see what they release. My wife is getting a 64GB SE to replace her 16GB one so I am going to use that for now.

If the SE didn't exist I would still be using my 5s as my daily driver. I feel it's the last of the great Toc cycle devices

I have a 5S that I put the betas on and use as a backup phone if for some reason I have a catastrophic loss of my current iPhone. The iPhone 5S runs great on 10.3.1

I still have mine but now that the battery is at 83% of it's original capacity, I bought an SE to replace it. The 5S still lasts, or at least seems to last just as long as my new SE does so I will still use it here and there. My 64GB SE is on the left, the 32GB 5S on the right. My SE is about two weeks old, the 5S about 3-3.5 years old if I remember correctly. I still have the back film on the SE because I don't have a case for it yet although I haven't had one on the 5S in a few years now and it has only a few minor nicks in the beveled edge.

I have one , along with a Z5 Premium

Love it ,and wont upgrade as I prefer the design to the 6 and 7 series iPhones

It is starting to suffer though , ghosting on the screen , battery only has 50-60% retained capacity , lightning port is dying and unexpected shutdowns . Still love it though !

I've been using a 5s for work the last few years. Still going strong, though I'm hoping we get to upgrade soon as I'm finding it becoming more and more of a challenge typing on the 4" screen.

What a phone, and an S model that actually had a hardware update. I'm a little sad my upgrade cycle didn't tie in with its release because that form factor with touch ID was perfect.
