So, the iPhone 5s and 5c have finally been revealed after months of speculation, and with the latter available to pre-order in just a couple of days, Apple fans have a bit of a decision to make. The iPhone 5s has certainly pushed the boundaries with a plethora of new features, but while the iPhone 5c may be distinctly similar in terms of hardware to the iPhone 5, its funky design and range of color options will surely render it a hit among consumers. But which will you choose?
Although we had a rough idea of what to expect leading up to the announcement of the iPhone 5s and 5c, but Apple still managed to surprise us. The clinching feature may be the A7, 64-bit processor, but there are still plenty of other nice touches besides. The fingerprint sensor rumored beforehand turned out to be true, with the new Touch ID feature being the topic on everybody’s lips right now, and with a dual-LED flash offering more natural lighting in those dark situations, the device has certainly impressed the vast majority of fans and commentators.
The iPhone 5c is, essentially, an iPhone 5 in a plastic shell, but with a slick design and a rainbow of color configurations available, still offers a very attractive package. Add to this the fact that it’s the cheapest new iPhone Apple has ever released, and you can understand the dilemma many find themselves in.
Of course, while you don’t get the high-end finish of the iPhone 5s with your iPhone 5c, you do get a bright, vibrant exterior, and with the device being significantly cheaper than the new flagship, could well serve one of its main purposes to corner the developing markets.
As we continue to digest these two big releases, it throws up the obvious question: which one do you plan on getting? Will it be the iPhone 5s with its powerful processor and new shades of aluminum, or the polycarbonate iPhone 5c, a budget device with plenty of kick?
Be sure to cast your vote in our poll, and leave your comments below. Personally, I’m going for the iPhone 5s, because I think it will be the slickest device I’ve ever used, but I must admit to being tempted by a blue iPhone 5c!
