I have the 5C in white & my husband has a 5s. Honestly there is no difference! we were planning to upgrade our phones but realized it would be the same thing except the the 6 and 6+ just have A better quality camera but that isnt really much of a difference. I think I’m just going to wait it out & see what’s after the 6+ . Lol

BearyLovely:  I just opted not to get my son one.  They only come with 8 gigs of memory (at least at Verizon) now that the 6 is out.  You will use that in no time.  I would get the 6 or the 5s.

RedHeadKel:  The 5c is basically the 5 with colored cases.  When the 5s came out, Apple stopped making the 5 and came out with the 5c as the entry phone.  When it first came out, you could get more than 5gig of memory.  Now that the 6 is out, at least at Verizon, you can only get 8 gig of memory.  It is free with a 2 year contract, and that is why there’s not much memory. 

OP, if you want a 5c, I would get a refurbished one with more memory.  I think the OS takes up about half the phone’s memory.

Depending on your carrier you may be able to get an iPhone 6 for free too by trading in your 4s. Verizon gave me $200 for my 4s when I upgraded.

BearyLovely:  I have it! I moved from a Blackberry to this phone so can’t compare to other iphone models really but love this phone so much cause it can do so much! It also takes really great pictures. I was in the same boat as you inthat I didnt want to spend $200 for an upgrde to get the 5s I just didnt see the point

I have a 5C and Fiance has a 5S, to be honest, other than the fingerprint unlock feature on the 5S I couldn’t tell you how they are different. <br /><br />I love my phone, have never had a problem with it, it is my first iPhone, and I will never go back to android!<br /><br />

BearyLovely:  I have the 5 right now, which is basically the same phone as the 5c, and I like it fine.  BUT, it has 32 gig of memory.  If the C came with that much memory, I would say go for it.  I think you will be really, really sorry if you get a new 5c and are stuck with 8gig.  You will fill that up in no time, just by downloading facebook and taking a few pictures and putting a few songs on there.  Like I said, I nixed it for my son when I found out it was just 8 gig.  He went with a glaxy 3, because he did not want to wait for Verizon to get more 5s in.  They were out of them at the time and he wanted a phone that day.
