How To Get A New IPhone 5 For Less? The Options

LONDON, November 1, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

iPhone 5 is proving popular, breaking sales records and getting into the hands of more people faster than any phone before it. So, what makes iPhone 5 so popular, and, if you want a new phone for less, what are your options?

iPhone 5 works with what made iPhone 4S popular - great screen, powerful hardware, great looks and slender build - and improves on all it. The screen is larger at 4", giving you an extra row of apps, a better aspect ratio of 16:9 for movie-watching experience, and even more realistic colour reproduction. The A6 chip doubles the speed and graphical performance of iPhone 4S, and the design is elegant with a premium aluminium finish. It's also one of the slimmest phones around at just 7.6mm, making it easier to use with one hand and more portable than larger competitors.

Now, how do you get this high-end smartphone for a bit less? Well, one of the best ways is to get a discount.  Have an older iPhone? Well, if you'll be using iPhone 5, you won't need your old one, and some sites are giving some pretty generous trade-in prices. Carphone Warehouse is offering trade-in prices for iPhone 4S 16GB of around £180, giving you a huge discount on the newer model. Have an iPhone variant with larger memory? You can trade-in for even more.

You can also look at the cost of the phone as part of a pay monthly deal. There are many pay monthly deals that include the phone for free, but if you're prepared to pay a little upfront for iPhone 5, you can cut your monthly bill and get larger limits for your texts, calls, and internet data.

There's also the option of shopping around for the best deal. There are lots of comparison sites that will help you out, but also independent retailers such as Carphone Warehouse that let you see the various options from all the major networks. It'll save you time, and money. And you'll get your hands on the new iPhone 5.
