Which one would you prefer: iPhone 5s or iPhone 5c?

0. phoneArena 11 Sep 2013, 05:57 posted on

Apple unveiled not one, but two new iPhones yesterday - the premium 5s and the plastic 5c, which is designed to be a bit more affordable. Even though there's a small difference in terms of pricing, however, we think most will agree that the difference isn't really that substantial. Without a doubt, many people will soon be facing a merciless dilemma - which new iPhone to get?...

If I were looking at a Droid, I think I would be looking at the Maxx on VZW.

Not on Verizon and don't plan on leaving T-Mobile. Maxx is a beast though.

I also like the back of the Maxx - the back of the Ultra is the definition of fingerprint magnet. Not a single finger print is missed - even one on top of the other.

For today I think that the best smartphone is Sony Xperia Z1, but it is bulky so I won't spend my money for it. I will not rush, I will wait and look what flagship HTC will bring for us. Also Nexus 5 should be not very far away and seems that Oppo also preparing it's artilery, so I will wait. Who knows! :)

Because the poll would be lopsided if there was.

Nope, don't want a tiny screen. bring in the big screen apple.

-note: remember this, when apple sales plunge this year. you will see a brand new iPhone, 5" with 12-13MP and (quad core 1080p screens) early next year Q1. or next month i think with the new ipad. haha

Apple is milking the iphone 5 becuase they know their fanbase will buy it like their macs, once they even downgraded the macs to make them thinner and people stilll bought them.

Me neither. 5S not different from original 5. 5C looks very very CHEAP and look like a lumia 620 copycat and in term of price, no way. I can get a better phone with a better price with other company like HTC, Nokia, Samsung, LG Sony. Apple no ability to compete with others in term of price, battery, innovation.

But 5s have limited addition....Not worth the upgrade
and 5c has more Deletion..(biggest one sexy Body of IP5)

Iphonearena won't put the option on there cause they know it will out beat the votes for the same models.

I suspect a lot of iP5 owners share your sentiment. For that reason, I think iP5 prices in the used market aren't going to drop as much as they would if the 5C hadn't replaced the 5.

I'm with you there. I just bought my iPhone 5 back in February. Grant it, the fingerprint thing is cool but it's not worth me dishing out an full upgrade price for the 5S. I'll just tug along my 5 until the iPhone 6 comes out, which I hope...will get an all new design & what not. The only thing I like about the 5C is that rounded edges. Feels more comfortable to hold if not in a case, in my own opinion. The colors are awesome too. But, as I said..keeping my iPhone 5 until further notice of the iPhone 6.

The iPhone 5c is just a rip off IMHO... the IP5 normally would have been sold for that price, instead they just make a cheaper one, but demand you pay the same... Good luck selling the iP 5c, Apple!

The 5S on the other hand is a really nice option if you\'re about to buy a new phone anyway. There\'s no need to upgrade from the iPhone 5 however. I just don\'t understand why they won\'t allow third party developers to access the fingerprint scanner either...
