Paid a local tech shop $40 to put a new battery in my iphone 5 a few days ago. It's like a brand new phone now! I can easily ride this one out until they release iphone 8.

I wasn't sure if that graphic was necessary or not. Your public appreciation for it lets me know that I made the right choice.
