Now that the Phone 5S and 5C are out, you're probably considering upgrading to the newer phones. Despite their hefty price tags, the Apple's latest handsets offer a a smartphone experience that's second to none. Should you switch to the iPhone 5C? Let Gizbot help you decide.
iPhone 4 and 4S owners
If you own the iPhone 4S and 4, changing over to the iPhone 5C is a good idea. Compared to the 4 and 4S, the iPhone 5C has a lot of improvements. There's a better camera, faster processor (A6 which is used in the iPhone 5), and a larger screen. Also, you'll receive the entire iWorks line of apps free with the two new phones. Plus, if you're into colourful bodies, then moving to the iPhone 5C is a very good idea.
iPhone 5 owners
If you own an iPhone 5, then you should stay away from the iPhone 5C. Why? For starters, your iPhone 5 has a beautiful metal body. Why trade it off for the 5C's polyurethane form factor? Also, both phones share the same processor (A6), the same pixel density on their displays, the same grade of iSight and front facing cameras and even the same sensors and connectors. The iPhone 5 and 5C are practically the same phone. Apple has just given the iPhone 5C a plastic body to differentiate it form the exquisite 5S.
The only good thing about the 5C is that it offers two hours more battery life than the iPhone 5, which isn't a good enough reason for a change. Also, the iOS7 update is coming to the older iPhones this week. So if you own an iPhone 5, stay away from the 5C.
What about the 5S?
Well, if you own an iPhone 5 and want to upgrade to an iPhone 5S, then that's a good idea as well. The 5S takes users to the next generation in mobile computing thanks to its 64-bit A7 chip. It has support for Open GL ES 3.0 for games, which is a very, very good thing. Apart from this, there's loads of brilliant, new hardware that validates the update. So if you're considering the iPhone 5S, then go for it!
