We always aim to provide accurate information but if there’s anything we’ve missed then please get in touch and let us know.

We aim to display as many tariffs available on the market as possible, depending on the data available to Mobile Phones. Legacy tariffs are excluded as well as some more granular tariff information such as international out of bundle rates.

We aim to display as many existing customer tariffs as possible, depending on the data available to Mobile Phones. Existing customers should check with their current provider for additional customer tariffs.

We aim to display as many promotional extras with tariffs as possible, depending on the data available to Mobile Phones. Some promotional extras may not be displayed.

Many discounts and promotions on Mobile Phones will be included in the tariff pricing structure. Automatic cashback is included in the average monthly cost, first-year cost and total contract cost calculations. Some promotions such as gift cards and redemption cashback will need to be claimed by the customer after the tariff is purchased, therefore, we do not include these in our pricing structures. The tariff supplier will be able to give full details of how these promotional extras should be claimed.

Tariffs featuring 'unlimited' allowances may be subject to traffic management or fair usage policies. Please see our guide for more information on how this works.

SIM only deals are limited to 30 day or longer, excluding shorter plans and 'Pay as you go' tariffs.

All prices shown are inclusive of VAT.

Prices shown are based on the assumption a user will not exceed their inclusive allowance. Costs for additional out-of-allowance usage are provided for information only.

If you choose to pay via a method other than direct debit or you would like itemised or paper billing, you may incur additional charges to those displayed on Mobile Phones.

A supplier may increase the price during your contract, but if this is excessive you should be able to exit without penalty. Ofcom has more information on how to complain about your provider and comparative information on complaints handling.

Our Apple iPhone 5s Review

What are the main features?

Users of the iPhone 5s can enjoy an uncompromised smartphone experience, with the same features you’ll find in more recent iPhones, simply scaled back.

The iPhone 5S fully supports iOS 9, Apple’s latest version of its smartphone operating system. With iOS 9, you can be sure that your phone will run at optimal speed and have the same features as later models. This includes faster processing, a smoother experience and new features such as an enhanced keyboard. iOS 9 is available exclusively to the 5S and above, meaning you won’t find it if you’re looking for an older model.

If you’re on a modern mobile plan, you’re probably interested in getting the most out of your 4G connection. The iPhone 5S features improved 4G capabilities, meaning that your phone can get connected to mobile broadband quicker and easier. 

Another improvement the iPhone 5S has over the standard model is the improved model. Featuring an 8 megapixel camera, the device allows you to capture both photos and video in super-sharp HD. You’ll also be able to playback videos in 1080p resolution.

What’s the battery life like?

When using the iPhone 5S, you’ll find the battery life above average when compared to other phones. Depending on your use, you should be able to manage a full day’s battery from just one charge. This may change if you’re big user of mobile broadband or use your phone for features such as games and video streaming. If you’re more of a casual user, you shouldn’t have any battery issues, although it is advised that you still charge your phone every night. 

Who would like this phone?

If you’re interested in an up to date smartphone with a huge amount of modern features, the iPhone 5S is perfect for you. Whilst not as advanced as the 6 models, it’s the best version of the 5 series and the only one that Apple still officially supports. It’s also cheaper than the more current models in both pay as you go and contract deals, so if you’re looking for a smartphone experience on a budget, it could be the ideal option. 

What do we think?

The iPhone 5S is the ultimate version of Apple’s 5 series, blending a smoother, easier to use handset with advanced graphics and ongoing technical support from Apple. If you’re not ready to jump into the iPhone 6 just yet, the iPhone 5S is ideal.
