Just looked into O2 refresh and very nearly ended up ordering a 6. Back on the fence.

Laughing out loud Think the way to decide would be to get the iPhone 6, you will have 14 days to back it if the 4g or reception or whatever is shit, then you get the z3c.

To get the z3c first without using the iPhone 6 and coming from an iPhone is possibly the wrong way to do it.

Yeah that's the way I'm thinking of going. That £350 z3 is so tempting though.

Cheers for the honest assessment. I'd expect them to have the usual scuffs and scrapes as the 5 is prone to them but want one which is 100% working and no cracks, dings etc.

Doing this your probably going to just stick with the 6, though. Leap of faith to the Z3C and back that if you don't like it is the way to go IMO. That's how ill be going if i decide i want a change from my 5.

No cracks, screen is fine. Body has scratches, maybe the odd little ding but nothing particularly bad, but lots of scuffing etc and as with all iphones battery life is worsening (still lasts the day though). Let me know if you're interested.

Yeah but if O2 and the 6 have shit 3G/4G in my area then I can make the forced move to the z3 and I'll have to deal with it. If I get the z3 first then return it and the 6 doesn't work with the signal then it's game over.

Selling a 5S, great condition no scratches or dings. Bit of wear to bezel even though it's been in a case but purely superficial and hardly noticeable.

Boxed with all accessories, headphones never even taken out of the box. Seem to be going for £350ish on eBay so will be happy to sell for £320 to a fuker.

My iPhone 5 now had zebra / white lines and touch isn't working. Googled this and can't work out whether it is a screen change or even more work? Was gonna order a DIY kit but not sure now. Any ideas ?

Buy a good 5S at a decent price to replace it.
