    i'm not using any upgrades. the contract isn't over yet, so i guess it's off contract. but combined with the price of selling the old phone and a special promotion it comes to like somewhere under $80
    Oh ok, that's not bad at all.

    prefer 5s...i personally find the 5c models to look childish. If i want color on my 5s, i can just buy a case. To me iPhone has always been about class and style, i find the 5c body to resemble something 'cheap'. Sorry, thats just my personal opinion.
    I completely agree.

    I like the look of the 5s, but I actually prefer how the 5c feels in my hand more. The slightly curved back seems to contour better to my hand, and somehow feels more sturdy and stable, like it's less likely to slip out and fall.

    I agree. Just bought my sister the pink 5C and it feels amazing without a case - of course she'll be getting a case soon. Haha.

    Like the OP, I tend to like to hold a 5c more than a 5s. Feels better, less harsh. 5s is by far, a better design, though.

    5c easily. Yes the 5s is far better than the 5c but with the 5s you have to be super careful due to the Glass and Aluminum, whereas the 5c just feels amazing to hold naked. Those smooth curves and the plastic back just gives you a good feeling. But yes, the 5s over the 5c only in terms of features. Because I've had the 5 before this, I'm actually bored of the 5s design even though I have a 5s

    I like them both. I don't think that the 5C looks cheap at all. If you want a little color on your phone, I would say that is the way to go. I particularly like the white 5C. The 5S is just plain gorgeous. No matter what color you get it is plain sexy. Too bad I have to put a case on it.

    I use a gold 5s. But if the 5c had similar technology, I might have gone with a 5c, just to change things up a bit. I'm a sucker for Jony Ives's lines re the design of it.

    The metal 5 and 5s have been nice, though. I like them all.

    I think it is obvisious the iphone 5c is the better design, it is way more comfortable to hold and probably less fragile. With that said the iphone 5s is one of the best looking designs based on pure Aesthetics, phone is really beautifully made.

    Various drop tests are available on youtube for your viewing pleasure. Some if them showing the 5c sustaining more damage than the 5s.

    The screens if these two phones, IMO, are equally vulnerable.

    They didn't make the 5c in all black because they KNOW it would eat into 5s sales.

    And if 64 GB was offered. I would have loved to buy a pink 64 GB iPhone 5C.

    The 5S. The 5C looks fine but the 5S is just ridiculously beautiful.
