    Hi, when I purchased my 5s I was on the fence in regard to purchasing the 5c instead. I am interested in seeing why you guys went with the 5c instead of the 5s. And if you didn't already own your 5c would you still purchase it now or go for the 5s?

    Yes. It was my first iPhone. I still adore it after buying (and then selling) my 5s.

    I adore the colors, love how it feels in hand and I enjoy using it.

    The 5c is a great device, but I had the 5 and going to the 5c would not have been that much of an upgrade. Went with the 5s and haven't regretted it.

    I went with the C because it was free with the trade in for my broken 4s. Would I buy it again? Sure.

    I don't have any complaints with it mechanical wise. The only complaint I have is about the cases. Most of the cases get released for the 5 and 5s and what few cases I like that are released for the C are black or gray. Other than that, I'm perfectly happy with my purchase.

    To me, the 5C is preferable to the 5/5S. I upgraded from a 5 to a 5C as I didn't really see that much that interested me in the 5S, whereas I think the 5C looks really nice. I love the polycarbonate body that the 5C has, and I feel that it makes the phone easier to hold as well as looks much nicer.

    I myself left android again to come back to iOS. I went with a 5c and so far am not regretting my choice, my only issue is this phone without a case is extremely slippery! Went with a green one and I'm digging it!

    I actually got my 5c as my first iPhone. Even after buying the 5s, I still loved my 5c. I sold my 5s... Now I'm looking to buy another 5c.

    I originally went to the Apple store to buy the 5S.
    It was sold out, so I settled for the 5C.
    I have no regrets, the 5C has proven to me to be a solid device.

    I would buy more 5Cs to form a collection, if there were huge sales on them for sure.

    I'd definitely buy another one. I much prefer the plastic over the aluminum. Call me weird!

    I like it because theoretically it's harder to break than the glass or the aluminum. I've dropped mine more than once because I'm a klutz and the worst thing that's happened is the phone separated from the pink part at the corner it fell on but I just snapped it back into place.

    Relevancy to the name? LOL

    Yeah, mine has hit the floor pretty good once. Nothing serious happened.

    My wife has a green iPhone 5c and I absolutely love hers than my Black iPhone 5.

    5c is much more smoother and comfortable to hold. You gotta hold it to understand what I am saying!

    Aside from the colour, it's the overall feel that does it for me. I know the 5c was your first iDevice, but for me, I always missed the feel of the iphone 3G and this is the closest I've got to it. I actually queued for 4 hours to get the 4 on release day and returned it 3 days later as I missed the 3G

    Almost everything I own is that color. I was going to get a 32GB green one but since I'm keeping the blue one too, I've technically got 32GB. Plus I was worried I might actually get sick of the green. Unlike blue, it's not one of my favorite colors actually.

    Besides, I would of only saved $100 off with the 32GB. They gave me $200 off the 16GB.

    Love this Sept - it looks great !! I just bought a similar case from Apple last week as well. It's by "Adopted" and has the swirled cut-outs which looks great with my coral pink C as well !!

    Good luck with the white C 😃👍

    Oh and just to add - I would def buy a C series again without a doubt
