The iPhone 5s is the latest phone from Apple which has received excellent reviews. The great news is that it is possible to get an iPhone 5s contract with bad credit.
All of the main mobile phone networks and online phone retailers stock the iPhone 5s. Many will bundle the iPhone for free with selected contracts and most will offer free shipping and free next day delivery. You can choose from the stylish silver, space grey or gold colours and there are a wide range of iPhone 5s accessories to choose from.
There currently aren’t any providers that offer a guaranteed iPhone contract as the phone is very expensive to produce so you should not expect to find no credit check offers for the iPhone 5, but to increase your chances of being accepted read the comprehensive guides and FAQ’s on refused.org.uk to maximise your chances.

The iPhone 5s is the flagship phone from Apple and it widely considered by many to be the best smartphone on the market.
As with all iPhone models the build quality is excellent and there is a solid feel to the phone in large part due to the fact that it has an aluminium body. This gives the phone a real premium feel when compared to other premium phones that are typically made from moulded plastic.
The iPhone 5s is made easier to hold in one hand by the 4-inch screen. This means that it is easy to hold and operate the phone with one hand rather than having to use two hands as is the case with mobile phones with much larger screens.
Performance-wise on paper the 5s does not have the processing power of the Samsung Galaxy S5 (the iPhone 5s has a dual-core 1.4Ghz processor with 1GB of RAM compared with the Galaxy S5 which has a quad-core 2.5Ghz processor with 2GB of RAM) but in several independent tests the iPhone 5s has matched the Galaxy S5 in performance. This is a notable achievement which is likely made possible due to the superb build quality of the phone and the efficiency of the iOS operating system.
The 4-inch screen housed in the iPhone 5s is one of the smaller screens when compared with other leading smartphones and as such the resolution suffers slightly at 1,136×640 but this is more than compensated for by the benefit of being able to operate the phone one handed easily and the sheer excellence of the screen vibrant Retina display.
The camera on the 5s is excellent with many people preferring to use the iPhone as their primary camera so they can leave the dedicated digital camera at home. The rear camera sports an 8Mp resolution whilst the front is 1.2Mp. Shots can be taken quickly in bursts by quickly tapping the camera button and there are shortcuts on the iOS platform that help you to get to the camera interface quickly so you won't miss that precious shot.
Low light shots have remarkable resolution and there is a dual LED flash in order to illuminate the target evenly.
The battery life on the 5s is good - a greater improvement when compared with previous iPhone's but it is still the type of phone that will need to be charged on a daily basis if you regularly use the phone. If the 5s has a weakness it is probably the battery which is not best in class and it is sealed inside the phone so if the battery was to fail you would not be able to swop it out yourself for a new battery, it would need to be repaired by Apple.
The iPhone 5s is a polished top end mobile phone that is hard to beat. The specifications and usability are first class and with the addition of iOS 7 it is the sort of phone that you can pick up immediately and it just works. It is powerful, intuitive and it has the benefit of literally millions of apps that can be downloaded from the Apple app store to improve the phone and make your life easier or that little bit more fun!
