If you've been thinking about getting an iPhone 5s, Virgin Mobile is offering the 16GB model for $439.99 contract-free for a limited time.
To call the iPhone 5s popular would be an understatement. The smartphone has been the top-selling handset on all four major carriers in the U.S. since it ent on sale last September. The iPhone 5s' defining feature is one that its Android rivals are just now adding - a fingerprint scanner. In typical Apple fashion, the company has made the security feature an elegant and simple process by placing the fingerprint sensor inside the 5s' Home button, which is now made from Sapphire glass and surrounded by a stainless steel detection ring, making fingerprint scanning look good as well.
Apple has also focused on the iPhone 5s' camera by adding its new True Tone Flash technology, which produces images with true and rich colors. Apple also added a very cool slow-motion video capture option right in the 5s' camera application.
Virgin Mobile is now offering the 16GB iPhone 5s contract-free for $439.99 for a limited time. This is the lowest price the iPhone 5s has been available for without a contract.
As a reminder, the iPhone 5s ships with Apple's all-new Touch ID, which places a fingerprint scanner inside of the Home button to securely lock the smartphone and make iTunes purchases. The handset is packing a 4-inch Retina display with a resolution of 1136 x 640 and a pixel density of 326 pixels per inch (ppi). The 5s is using Apple's latest A7 processor, which features 64-bit processing, a first for a smartphone, and an M7 coprocessor that can track movement and also provides better power efficiency.
Its camera capabilities include an 8-megapixel iSight rear camera with slow-motion recording, autofocus, dual-LED flash, and True Tone flash to allow for rich and true colors. The 5s also has a front-facing 1.2-megapixel FaceTime HD camera for video chat and selfies. Its wireless connectivity options consist of a 4G LTE radio, dual-band Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0 with LE (low energy), and GPS. The iPhone 5s comes with 16GB of internal storage and its battery will provide up to 10 hours of talk time and 250 hours of standby time.
