    Very simply, based purely on the aesthetics, do you prefer the 5S or the 5C?

    I know I'm probably going to be in the vast minority on this one, but I actually prefer the aesthetics of the iPhone 5C to the 5S. Or, more specifically, I prefer the blue 5C. I have the Space Gray 5S, which is by far my favorite 5S color, but there's just something I love about the the 5C. It reminds me of my trusty old white 3G. Sure the 5S looks so much more sophisticated and clearly delivers a strong sense of class and style, but I'm a sucker for bright colors, and I really want just want to stuff my 5S into the body of a blue 5C.

    So, that's my position. Which do you prefer?

    I agree with the OP. the 5c has an undeniable style and sophistication, but for something I use and hold every day, I love my blue 5c.

    This is going to seem odd coming from me, but I actually prefer the aesthetics of the 5c vs. the 5S. To me, it just looks more fluid and smoother...and I think I like the fact that regardless of the color you get, you get that black front glass panel (which I really prefer now regardless of model). Looking at my friends green 5c the other day, I can't lie when I say that I was a bit envious of it (again, aesthetically).

    Throw this same poll up in the 5C forum (if you have not already. I don't venture over that way). I'd be curious to see if the results are the opposite.

    After years of owning plastic phones and going to an HTC One and then an iPhone 5S - it is 5S all the way.

    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.

    5s...to me makes it look like a device versus a toy. I think it's the bezel that wraps around the phone that does it for me. Whether Gold, Silver, or Space Gray I just think it looks better.

    Fianc just got the 5C and I still prefer the 5s over it in terms looks alone. I do have to say the 5C is a solid device

    5S, easily. Looks more sophisticated. The 5C looks more like a kid's version, or even a female's version.

    I'd liken it to an expensive, rolex watch compared to those bright coloured plastic ones.

    It's hard to say really. The 5C has beautiful colors and a case would ruin the look, but the 5S has a nice flash and a different home button. The 5S's flash is the best I've seen, so the 5S wins.

    5S. Im not a fan of the glossy cheap plastic they use on the 5C. It is a fingerprint magnet and makes the already slippery iPhone even more slippery.

    I vote for the 5S. The 5C is a beautiful and high quality device, but it pales in comparison to the 5S, which feels...luxurious, for the lack of a better word.

    lol at the poll!!!!!

    i have the iphone 5 but i hate how it is so generic and boring so i will be getting an iphone 5c next week. i think it is good because mine is only 16 gb but the one i am getting is 32 gb and it is super cheap with all the discounts but still an upgrade! plus i won't have to worry about getting a case for the 5c since it is a lot more durable like a normal phone

    Aside from the increase in storage space, I'm not sure it's much of an upgrade, you might be able to do a trade with someone and offer a little cash and get a 5C that way without using an upgrade on a phone that is more of a lateral move. I'd look on craigslist or something like that.

    Coming from Android and having owned 3 samsung phones, I like the aesthetics of the 5S more.

    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
