Released in September 2012, the iPhone 5 16GB not only received a performance upgrade, but was given a visual makeover too. This new version was eagerly awaited by Apple aficionados; it sold in its millions on release, and still remains a popular choice today.
So what makes this phone so popular? For one, the screen is larger at 4 inches, making the phone taller while keeping it the same width and although, with a cursory glance, the front of the iPhone 5 doesn't look that much different from the 4S, turn it round and it's a different story. The back is no longer glass, making it a much more durable product. A rear 8-megapixel camera allows you to take both high quality photographs and 1080p video, while the front-facing 1.2 megapixel camera makes taking selfies a breeze, and also offers you the facility to connect with friends and family via FaceTime. In addition, due to the faster processor used in the iPhone 5, things seem to run much more smoothly than on previous iPhones, and you'll find it has twice as much RAM as an iPhone 4.
Just like previous Apple phones, the iPhone 5 16GB was well received by iPhone lovers and is still being used my many people today; plus there's a constant demand for all Apple handsets even if they're not the latest model. As a result you'll find the prices offered for older models of iPhone are usually higher than similar devices from other manufacturers. If you'd like to sell your old iPhone 5 16GB you don't need to mess around with eBay or other sites, just check the table above to see how much the top recycling companies are currently offering.
You've got lots of options too, such as payment by voucher, which is usually higher than the cash price! Many recyclers will pay you the same day they receive your phone, and even those who don't won't take long to get your money to you. The value of phones generally only goes down so the quicker you sell your iPhone 5 the more you'll get for it.
