How to save money to upgrade from iPhone 5s to iPhone 6

The iPhone is by far the best-selling mobile device on the market even though it does come with a high price tag. Sure, an iPhone is cool; it’s also pretty fast, powerful and provides great service in the customer experience. But that doesn’t necessarily mean that you need an upgrade every time there is a new generation product coming up. Besides, Apple may want you to upgrade you iPhone every year, so commonly the difference between the new model and the previous one is getting smaller. Even though it does not satisfy us every time and most of the old phone or a refurbished iPhone work just fine, but it still manage to attract many people to make the upgrade to the new model. Especially when the models are similar in many ways like the iPhone 5s and iPhone 6 and people will start to be confused that whether and when they should make the upgrade and is there any ways to do it more wisely?

Of course, the biggest difference you’ll notice between these two models is the size of the display. Apple finally ditched the diminutive 4-inch display with iPhone 5s and the iPhone 6 retains the larger 4.7-inch screen this time around. While 4.7-inches would still be considered minuscule or ‘compact’ in an Android device, it’s a noticeable jump if you’re used to the earlier 4-inch iPhones and it might feel a little strange at first. We found this, but it soon became easy to hold and there are plenty of pluses to having a larger display. And you can get a higher resolution panel with an iPhone 6 or refurbished iPhone 6. This device had a fantastic IPS LCD display with a 750 x 1334 resolution and 326 pixels per inch. Now, that’s not the most pixel packed panel we’ve ever seen, in fact it’s just marginally better than 720p – but it has accurate colors, wasn’t too over-saturated and boasted fantastic viewing angles. Plus, detail certainly wasn’t lacking.

    However, there is a downside about the change, you’re going to lose the compact nature of the iPhone 5S with the introduction of the bigger display. Apple’s final 4-inch device was great as a gym buddy and for those with smaller hands, while you could easily reach every corner of the display without stretching your digits too much, while the iPhone 6 is at 7.1mm and 143g respectively. More importantly, that makes it half a millimeter thinner and a significant 31g heavier than the iPhone 5S. The iPhone 5S was the first mainstream smartphone to use a 64-bit processor in the A7, but in the two years or so since its release the mobile world has caught up. 2015′s iPhone 6 used the updated A8 chip – which was faster, smaller and had improved GPU performance. As ever, this chip will gives better performance both for the CPU and is up from 1.4GHz on the iPhone 6.

Ensuring older phones are updated is something that Apple is brilliant at doing all the time, it make sure you get the latest software. While Android phones can often lag behind and not receive major updates sometimes for months after they’re released, Apple devices all get the latest iOS software on the same day it is released. Of course, you cannot expect to get all the new features to older phones or some other refurbished iPhone of really old models, but plenty of them do. For instance headline features like the Low Power mode, improved Siri, redone Notes app and deeper search have all made their way to the iPhone 5S. But, if you upgrade to the latest device you’ll also get some all-new hardware features.


If you think it is worth to upgrade to the iPhone 6 and you still have the money to consider, then you can always to get a refurbished unlocked iPhone 6 instead and you can enjoy the good features of an advanced model of iPhone 6 and you will not pay a heavy price.
