Used iPhone 5s and iPhone 6 continue to get cheaper. Worth buying?

Yes and no.
The release of iOS 13 hit the price of the used iPhone 5s, iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. Smartphones did not receive support for iOS 13, in connection with which many owners began to try to sell them in the secondary market. By mid-October, the price of used iPhone 5s and iPhone 6/6 Plus fell even more. But is it worth it to buy?
As the main smartphone? Not recommend
The average price of used iPhone 5s fell to 5,000 rubles, iPhone 6 – to 6,500 rubles. Over the past two weeks alone, many smartphone sellers at leading trading floors have made discounts of up to 30%.
It is assumed that the main reason is the lack of support for the operating system iOS 13 smartphones. Because of this, the owners of smartphones could decide to massively get rid of devices in order to purchase newer models.
But although the prices for smartphones are pleasant, we do not recommend purchasing them as the main device. There are many inexpensive and modern Android smartphones on the market, some of which are better than the iPhone 5s and iPhone 6.
The exception is that if the money is close, you just need the iPhone and you have found a model with a "live" battery. By the way, the battery on the iPhone 5s or iPhone 6 purchased from the hands must first be checked. In most cases, it requires an urgent replacement, which is why the actual cost of the smartphone increases.
As a second smartphone? The most
iPhone 5s and iPhone 6 are great options for an additional smartphone. They work quickly on the latest versions of iOS 12 and have stable autonomy. At the same time, all applications on smartphones are, of course, supported. iOS 12 will remain current firmware for many more years.
In addition, iPhone 5s or iPhone 6 in good condition will be the ideal first smartphone for a child. All functions, including those necessary for communication with parents, will work stably on it. At the same time, if a child leaves a scratch on the case or completely loses a smartphone, then parting with him will not be as sorry as with the new iPhone 7 for 30 thousand.
