Hello everyone. I am looking at getting either the iPhone 5S or the 5C and I would like the opinion of those who own the 5S. Do you like it? I am not a business person, nor am I a photographer. I want to have an iPhone that will take the most current operating system update, has a good camera that I can take quick pictures with, can surf the internet, is fast, and has good call quality. I have AT&T Wireless and I know that AT&T carries it. Is the iPhone 5C worth the money?
Not to stick up for Apple, but who really cares about NFC? Seriously. What do you want to be able to do with it on an iPhone that you can't now? Apple brought out their little airdrop deal, which essentially does the same kind of thing.
I thought that I would soon switch to an Apple iPhone. But with the same small, low pixel density screen, I will stick with android this year. Maybe next year when apple switches to a 4.5" screen ill pick one up. Same phone... with an un-justifiable expense such as a fingerprint sensor..
By the time Apple releases the iPhone 6 the competition will be miles ahead from them. Apple has been launching already-existant technology on their new devices, meaning technology months, if not years old. Nothing new from them really.
I'll pass on Apple this time. The 5S is pretty much the same as the 5 with a few cool-but-not-so-useful features. Apple is still behind in technology. No NFC, multi tasking = no bueno. I'll wait to try the Note3 and G2 to chose ma' new phone! 😎
Granted I think we all knew this was coming but still. Yes is it faster and have better hardware and yes does apple usually only do major redesigns every other year, but the same size yet again and nothing really outstanding. From an Apple fan I'm disappointed
Really? So the remaining stock of iPhone 5 will be priced the same as a 5s? The 5c will be priced the same as the remaining 4s? I know the masses are dumb, but who would make such a purchase? Are they just going to pitch the remaining stock of 4, 4s, and 5 phones? If so won't that offend the environmentalists that they felt compelled to pander to by ensuring we knew Al Gore was at the meeting (for an elitist product for rich people no hypocrisy there lol) and by promoting that they didn't commit the heinous sin of using evil PVC in what will ultimately be their latest entry into their disposable phone series? Good thing environmentalists don't ask tough questions when they are being pandered to.
So they added a processor thats 2x faster than the iPhone 5, a camera that takes the best pictures of any phone on the market and it's running 64-bit now but what else has changed?
A fingerprint sensor, really? A whole new operating system?
The phone still looks like the older phone! It LOOKS the same!
Sure, maybe it's the fastest phone on the market, has the best camera, more apps, console-quality games, more LTE bands than any other phone, dedicated graphics and now motion processors while being the most secure phone on earth but it still looks like the 5.
Features the iPhone needs to get before it's finally a real competitor:

Lol best camera. Not even close. More apps? Not by a long shot. Console-quality games? If by console you mean the original Nintendo then yes. Hey does Siri work yet? Oh...No. Not yet. Well that is sad. Hey can you have widgets? Oh you don't kn... (continues)
i find it funny how ignorant people want apple to change the way it looks, why change some that works, Samsung learned that from Appler the S4 looks almost exactly the S3 all Samsung did was better camera better processer, and gimicky apps like eye tr... (continues)
I am not sure if you are aware of this, but all Apple products have Sony cameras in them. It is useing Apples software, but its still a Sony camera. The new Xperia Z phones have an Excellent camera as well as HTC & Nokia. I really doubt it is the best... (continues)
