You should not overpay for the iPhone 5S, the price that various sellers quote are exorbitant and we are going to tell you the average cost that will be fair.
A short review is also at hand and reasons why you should buy this iPhone.
We all know the iPhone, right? Having an iPhone usually portrays a certain class which is above the rest. In Kenya, people judge you mostly by the phone you have and the car you drive.
Since we cannot have the car everywhere we go, the phone is the next piece of tech they will base their judgement on.
We highly recommend buying an iPhone in Kenya. Though they are expensive when compared to their android counterparts such as Samsung Galaxy phones.
People who have never owned the phones from Apple will argue that they are not worth the price, but that is completely false. When it comes to a premium quality, the iPhone has your back.
The iPhone 5S in Kenya Retails for Kshs. 45,000.
You should not buy iPhone 4 and its predecessors
However, should you buy an iPhone, we recommend buying from iPhone 5s to the latest iPhone. This is because though at the time they were powerful devices, they have slowly fallen off since there are numerous technological advances. You should avoid buying iPhone 4,3gs and the likes.
Apple released iPhone 5s in September 2013. Even though it was a while back, it still performs everyday tasks as smoothly as possible.
If you are considering other phones in the same price range as the 5s, you should purchase the 5s since the resale value will be higher at the same time, you will have a better performance as compared to other android devices.
It is important to realize that if you are moving from an android device, you won’t have the luxury of using a memory card, consequently, consider going with an iPhone with higher storage.
