Which new iPhone will you buy?

iphone5c-selection

We now know just about everything we could want about the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C. Both will be available for purchase in a little over a week on September 20th.The only question remaining: which one will you buy?

Each device offers something a little different. The iPhone 5C targets a lower price point and features a colorful design. The iPhone 5S focuses on premium build quality and top-of-the-line performance. For $99 you could walk away with an attention-grabbing 5C with hardware that more less matches the current generation iPhone 5. The iPhone 5S is pricier at $199, but offers a powerful 64-bit A7 processor and the new Touch ID fingerprint scanner.

Or perhaps you weren’t wowed at all. Maybe this generation of iPhone isn’t for you. If that’s that case there’s always next year and the iPhone 6 (or iPhone 6C?).

    For the extra hundo why not go with the newest version. Still for the price, I say shop around. ;)

    I don’t think this is a big enough revolutionary step for me to upgrade just yet. I think that If I had scrounged up money for a 5S now then I’d be kicking myself wanting the 6 whenever that comes out. I’m sure by then they will offer different screen sizes, They must.

    5S here.. And I ain’t ashamed to say it!! Im noticing a lot of haters but I know this one will sell like hotcakes. When ppl say this isn’t a big upgrade I think they mean literally ” big ” as in bigger phone and apparently 6″ screens are innovating and exciting. I am writing this from my nexus 7 at work, why do I need a big phone…? Lol

      I can say this, the main reason that I switched from Android to Iphone is for gaming. Maybe I am crazy, but gaming on 4″ screen sucks. that’s why i’m waiting for a bigger phone. I dont want to have more than one device in my pocket that can withstand my eagerness for gaming and watching netflix, aside from texting and Instant messaging (who calls anymore haha). For now I get by because the iphone recharges so quickly. In the future If there were an iphone with the similar configuration as, say a Galaxy note type phone. I would imagine that the bezel wouldn’t be as big but, that’s my idea. But I respect what you are saying as well. 4″ does make it easier to use the phone purely for what a phone is used for, social/calls/texting. that is more than enough size for that.

        I can understand and sympathize with that, in any other comments of mine ive made recently you will see that I would be willing to go up to 4.8″ but that’s my cut off point. I almost got an HTC one over the 5 a few months ago but backed down cuz I like what apple offers app wise and am hundreds of dollars deep in their Eco system lol.

        I just don’t want to see 5.5 or 6″ screens as the new standard in all phones

    There is really no reason to have to change phone every single year. Most people, like me, change phone about every two years. I will wait for the iPhone 6 or the Galaxy S 5….which ever comes out to be better next summer. I won’t consider anything that is not made by either Apple or Samsung.
