Is the iPhone 5s the worst phone created for reception?


iMore Question

After 3 sim cars and 4 phones I am convinced it is the worst phone ever created for reception, sending pictures , texting and for other to Hera me. Otherwise it's an adequate looking phone. They should be recalled, recycled and replaced. Any other phone will seem revolutionary.

I don't agree. I've had mine for 28 months without any issues.
I'd go so far to say it was one of the most reliable iPhones I've ever had.

I'm on an iPhone 6 since 3 weeks and I really miss the stability of my 5s. The form factor of the iPhone 6 is better though.

I would seem that your 5s has a problem. I too had a 5s and never had a problem. You should visit an Apple store and have them check it out.

Ok don't agree too. The iPhone 5s continue to be a great phone after these years. I really like it and r commend anyone to buy it today if you don't want the current models. But maybe you should go to a Apple Store and see what is happening as they're saying.
