iPhone 5S in the Test: How Good Is Still Apple’s Classic?

Although Apple officially actually no longer sells it, is to get iPhone 5 S still as new goods in the trade: currently (November 14) idealo.de is one handsome 337 deals from 249 euro. So, even O2 offers the iPhone 5 S 16-GB version for only 249 euros in the sale without contract or SIM-lock. Thus, the iPhone 5 S is the best introduction to the world of the iPhone outside of the second-hand market. Clear: After the release of the iPhone 6 and the mighty iPhone 6 plus the iPhone 5S is no longer the top model. Nevertheless, it remains the first choice for all the Apple fans who consider 4 inches as ideal size and the brightly colorful iPhone 5C is not noble enough. Compared to the iPhone’s new iPhone 5S that is significantly smaller and more manageable. And carries the same design that allows live on Apple in the iPhone SE, just at half the price. All basic functions of modern iPhone models you find also in the iPhone 5 S: how it works with the current iOS 10, offers a fingerprint sensor in the home button and a built-in pedometer.

A7-chip on board

 

The A7 chip is used in the iPhone 5S. It was the first iPhone with a 64-bit processor, what is in the new iOS 10 pays off. According to Apple, the A7 should be more than twice as fast as the A6 chip and 56 times faster than the CPU of the first iPhone. But how fast is the new A7 really? In the test, in particular the benchmarks spoke a distinct language: with 1,393 points in single-core and 2,473 points in the multi-core test, the GeekBench result fell more than twice as high as for iPhone 5 and 5C. When it comes to graphic a similar result: 6.187 points and 55 frames per second in the GFXBench with 3.271 points and 29 frames per second has the iPhone 5S the competition in the barriers.

Old, but still fast enough

 

In the COMPUTER lab enter weekly new smartphones. The iPhone 5S at least with the appearance of the mass stood out: record in SunSpider (402ms) and Google’s V8 test (5.767 points). Started with iOS 7.0.1, puts Apple’s 4-inch Smartphone with the latest iOS 10 is still a tolerable pace of work on the day. Compared to previous iPhones, the iPhone 5 S is almost twice as fast.

Mini display

 

Compared with current 5.5-inch displays in the iPhone 7 plus the 4-inch screen looks downright tiny 5S. Such as when the iPhone 5, the resolution is at 1136 x 640 pixels. Well thats today at most at level of the entry-level, but sharp enough to see no pixels at normal viewing distance. The small screen also has advantages: thanks to the narrow housing is the 5s well in hand and the small screen can be also with one hand easily operate an advantage over the iPhone 7. The display quality is still good. When the screen belonged to the brightest in the Smartphone store with latest Galaxy models or the iPhone-7 models but he can no longer keep. However, he is still visible on sunny days, usually without too much trouble.

iPhone 5S as fitness-Smartphone

 

Apple was the an own coprocessor for transaction data the A7 chip in the iPhone 5 S first to one side, the M7. So, that is iPhone 5S to the Fitnesstracker. With apps about Runtastic, Nike, Fitbit, the Apple own health app are quite a few apps available, which make the iPhone 5 S to compensate for a fitness-bracelet. Thanks to the pocket-friendly size, nothing speaks to wear the 5s in all day the pocket with him. So the movement data can be recorded and evaluated.

Fast Internet

 

The iPhone 5S funct iPhone 5 also in the fast LTE mobile communications networks by Vodafone and O2 as well as outside of the major cities other than that. Current LTE record speeds of over 300 Mbps are although not usable, but in practice speeds over 50 Mbps are always sufficient. You can also phone with the new iPhone. The sound quality is good.

Old resolution, new camera with dual Flash

 

The new sensor captured compared to the iPhone 5 a 15 percent greater active field of vision. The resolution remains unchanged at 8 mega pixels as the iPhone 5 and 4S. Nevertheless, the photo quality is slightly better, daylight photos show natural colours and a high dynamic range. The sharpness is higher than when the iPhone 5 C in the marginal areas and 5 shots in the semi-darkness are minimally better than with iPhone 5 and 5 C, can’t keep up with but with Nokia’s Lumia smartphones. For this, the iPhone 5 S has a Flash of two LEDs in different colours (amber and white). So, no images are possible with Flash. Impressive: You hold the camera icon, shoot photos in series the new iPhones. Here that made iPhone 5S in the test within ten seconds of 93 shots. Then you can choose the best photo. The iPhone 5S shoots very true-color images (Note 1.56 iPhone 5 3.78). Thanks to quick shutter, also sharp photos of moving objects are not a problem. Only drawback: without Flash the well-known noise is much similar with its predecessor. The camera of the iPhone 7 that can compete with 5s, plus you are looking for a double camera like the iPhone 7 to no avail.

Video and slow motion

 

As at that time first Smartphone, the 5s slow motion videos takes stutter-free (120 frames per second). While the resolution is slightly reduced to 720 p HD resolution. That bothers in practice non – sports movies or children’s videos are really fun. The editor can be then on the iPhone, which passages of time delay should run and which part of the normal video. So fun hobby films. Otherwise stored video in full HD.

Battery performance

 

According to the manufacturer, a single charge for ten hours of talk time lasts. As long you surf in the LTE network. In standby mode, the battery lasts through about 250 hours. In laboratory test disillusionment set in quickly. Although the 1,560 mAh battery is strong enough, but brings little advantage due to higher-performing hardware. Approximately 10 per cent higher battery capacity of the iPhone 5S, compared with the previous model iPhone 5, leads to longer opening hours. It reduces the standby time but also a higher footprint. In the practical use scenario reduce the use times in direct comparison to the iPhone 5 to 20 minutes.

The painting: scratch resistant and stable?

 

Instead of black and white Apple offers iPhone 5 S in the colour Space Grey, gold and silver. The dimensions correspond to those of the iPhone 5. But Apple from Scuffgate has learned and made the case more robust? Unfortunately only very moderate. In the scratch test with the tip of a diamond and defined strength (1 to 100 Millinewton), the back suffered visible damage. At the edge of the disputed weakness of its predecessor, also traces remained after a valiant with the scissors. There is an all-clear for the display: drop test from 70 centimeters height as well as scratch test survived without prejudice to the front. Overall solid, but not indestructible.

Best price on the Internet: 291,00 EUR * per order this product at Amazon very high pace of work quality, handy housing sharp display elegant integrated fingerprint sensor LTE contra no memory card slot battery firmly installed no NFC touch ID is bypassable (with effort) mark of the editorial 2.33 good users rating (out of 1 reviews)
