iPhone has received nine straight J.D. Power and Associates awards for customer satisfaction
Apparently love can be measured. In nine straight studies by J.D. Power and Associates, iPhone has been ranked 'Highest in Customer Satisfaction with Consumer Smartphones' in the US. 1
Only iPhone has the Retina display
The pixel density on the Retina display is so high, your eye can't distinguish individual pixels. Words are crisp. Images are bright and beautiful. Once you see the Retina display, you're never satisfied with anything less.
iPhone 5 connects to more networks all over the world, including HSPA, HSPA+, and DC-HSDPA.2 and dual-band 802. 11n accelerates your Wi-Fi experience. So you can browse, download and stream content remarkably fast, no matter where you are.
The world's most popular camera
The iSight camera on iPhone 5 takes such high-quality photos, it may be the only camera you ever need. The advanced optics capture great photo data, and then the hardware and software work together to make behind-the-scenes image and colour adjustments.
Great battery life
It's impressive that iPhone 5 gives you long battery life so you can easily make it through your day. 3 But it's extraordinary that such a powerful battery fits into such a thin and light design.
Powerful A6 chip
Just about everything you do on iPhone 5 is noticeably faster.4 And with faster graphics, gameplay is amazingly realistic. Best of all, the A6 chip is designed to work with iOS 6 to be extremely power efficient.
iTunes Store + App Store
Together, they offer millions of ways to be entertained from one trusted source: Apple. The iTunes store is the world's largest entertainment store. And the App Store has over 800,000 apps - all reviewed by Apple to guard against malware. 5
iPhone is so easy to use thanks to iOS 8 - the world's most advanced mobile operating system - and all its innovative features. Updates download straight to iPhone, so the latest iOS version is just a tap away.
What is a refurb?
It's a used phone that's been restored to its original state, so it's as good as new. The phone's user guide is available on the manufacturer's website. View our refurbished phone terms and conditions. Comes with a 12 month warranty.
Why doesn't the iPhone 5 Refurb come with a charger?
O2 is working to try and reduce waste. And as 70% of people already have a USB charger at home, we've decided to not include one with your phone. If you do need a charger, add one at a discounted price - you can do this after choosing your tariff. O2 does not make money from selling the charger separately.
