    I was using a Moto X and really liked it. I dropped it in water and ruined it. Bought it off contract on AT&T so I went to the store a couple days ago and got a 5S. I'm going to exchange it tomorrow because the screen is just too small for me. I use a massive amount of data browsing the web and watching videos. Before the Moto X I had a Note II and before that it was an iPhone 4.

    I like iOS so I was considering a 5c. Am I going to like the phone given that I like the 5S except for the screen size?

    The 5c and 5S have the same screen size. Id say go with something else with a bigger screen or wait for the iPhone 6 (a good 4 months maybe)

    Why would you get a 5C, if you didn't like 5S? The screen size is the same.

    I thought the 5c was a little bigger for some reason. I can't wait 4 months for the 6 because I need something now. Guess I'll go with the S5.

    Don't do it, S5 is not as smooth as 5S, and i have had to factory re set already after a month, i got one sitting here i can't sell unless i drop $300 from original cost. I also got a 5S last week till 6 arrives for a bigger screen, but i couldn't wait.
    The S5 screen is nice but that's it.

    I also had a M8 and didn't like it but it sold easily.

    I doubt you will like the 5C. You answered your question. I'd wait for the 6. I can see your situation. Your use to a bigger screen, transitioning to a smaller screen can be difficult.

    I went with the s5 and I'm glad I did so far. I like ios and it does have a smoother feel overall but my phone is primarily used for Web browsing and texting. I use a ton of data. I'm sure the iPhone 6 is going to be the perfect package but I can't wait so I at least need something to hold me over until then.

    The 5s is obviously a lot better one handed though. I have pretty big hands and the S5 can be used one handed for me but not as easily. I think a 4.7-4.8 screen is the perfect size. The Moto X was the perfect compromise but they need to make a Moto X 2 and update the specs.

    I think iPhone 5c and iPhone 5s is comparatively same features and same screen resolution but the main difference is 5c having Polycarbonate body material and 5s having Aluminum Body Material. so according to me 5s is great but 5c is also a great alternative. :cool:

    if you want a bigger screen, wait for mid-september for the iPhone 6. go buy a cheap spare on craigslist and wait it out!

    That's like saying a Camry and m5 have comparatively same features and the main difference is the interior materials.

    The 5s screen IS too small. So...why the 5c? That doesn't make sense.
