Is it better to buy the iPhone 5S or the iPhone 5C? Comparison and advice


iPhone 5s vs iPhone 5c: which smartphone is better to buy?

As you will surely have learned in these years, I have no particular sympathy for Apple products, in my opinion very beautiful but too closed and almost "neutered" by the company's choices. Anyway, I think it is undeniable that the iPhones produced by Apple are among the best smartphones in the world: they are beautiful, resistant, powerful and have a software kit that today is envied by all users who use other operating systems.

In the past few days Apple has presented and launched the new iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C in some countries, its new top of the range which will soon arrive in Italy.

We have already seen the data sheets and all the details on iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C, but today, in this article, I would like to givegive you some advice on which of the two smartphones to buy. iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C will arrive in Italy by December 2013, but the marketing date has not yet been made official. The only thing certain is the price: it starts from 630 for iPhone 5C and starts from 730 for iPhone 5S. This is certainly a not insignificant expense, especially if we consider that Italian wages are on average around 1100 per month, that's why I would like to help you make the best choice at the time of your purchase.

iPhone 5S or iPhone 5C? Which better to buy?

As we have seen, in terms of price these smartphones are very similar and they differ by only 100. But, in the face of such a small difference in price, better to buy iPhone 5S or iPhone 5C? The choice, I admit, is not easy. We consider for both the hardware and the design aspects that differentiate the two products.

iPhone 5S the top of the range from every point of view: it has a more powerful processor than that of the iPhone 5C (64 bit) and mount one camera that is slightly more sensitive to light (and therefore takes slightly better photos at night). Also, always for photos, we find a double LED flash, which is not as powerful as we would have expected. The other big difference between iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C represented by Touch ID sensor on the first, the long-awaited and talked-about sensor that recognizes fingerprints and increases the security of your device. As for the other hardware features, the two devices are absolutely identical.

At the design levelinstead iPhone 5S is definitely better than iPhone 5C, since made of aluminum. iPhone 5Cinstead, made with a plastic (polycarbonate) back cover, which, being available in many colors, manages to bring a breath of novelty to the Apple panorama. iPhone 5S available in white, gold and black / dark gray. iPhone 5C instead available in yellow, green, red, blue and white, although the front always remains the same color.

Now that we have seen all the main differences between the two Apple smartphones, let's try to understand which is better to buy.

So, in my opinion, if you want the latest top of the range, regardless of the price, iPhone 5S is for you. It is an excellent product, without compromise, and you can immediately take advantage of all the news introduced by Apple in this 2013. The downside, however, that on an aesthetic level you will have a smartphone almost completely equal to the iPhone 5, except for the Touch sensor ID (almost invisible in the home button) and for the double rear LED flash.

If you are tired of the usual iPhone 5S and iPhone 5 design, iPhone 5C is for you. It is basically an iPhone 5 (it has the exact same hardware, nothing has been changed), with the difference that the back in polycarbonate is more youthful. The availability of the smartphone in various colors gives you the opportunity to purchase the color that best suits your tastes. At a slightly less powerful hardware level than the iPhone 5S, but you will hardly notice it, also because it will take several months before the developers manage to produce games and applications capable of making the most of the 64bit processor of the new iPhone 5S. In my opinion iPhone 5C is an excellent compromise and mounts a very powerful and already widely tested hardware with iPhone 5.

One last tip: if you want to save a little something, wait for the new iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C to arrive in Italy. At that point you can buy iPhone 5 (which will come out of the market) both new and used at much lower prices than the current ones. And I assure you that iPhone 5, exactly one year after its launch, still one of the most powerful and best smartphones on the market.

I would say that we can conclude with this analysis. I'm curious to know your opinion in the comments.

I leave you with acomplete infographic that compares the features of iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C.
