iPhone 5S vs. iPhone 5C – What’s your pick?

The cost for an iPhone 5S on a two-year contract are $199 for the 16GB version, $299 for 32GB and $399 for the 64GB variant.

The device comes with a 4-inch display, an A7 chip, an 8MP camera, Touch ID sensor, and it is available in silver, space gray and gold.

For a two-year contract the iPhone 5C costs $99 for the 16GB version and $199 for 32GB.

It has the same 4-inch display and 8MP camera as the 5S, but it is powered by an A6 chip, and in the terms of colors it comes in white, pink, yellow, blue and green.

So far the gold iPhone 5S seems to be a hit as demand was high, especially in Asia, thanks of course to the Touch ID sensor and the processing power.

In the case of the iPhone 5C what attracted customers were the plastic casings which were available in five cheerful colors. The handset has the same hardware as the iPhone 5, and the price was also an advantage.
