    I have an iPhone 5 but I plan on giving it to my mom and upgrading for free.

    I'm wondering what differences are between the iPhone 5 and 5C? I know the appearence is difference but what about the specs?

    I don't think the 5S is worth $100 more than my 5 so I'm wondering what are the differences (hardware) between the 5 vs 5C vs 5S?

    I think I may want the 5C because I hate rocking the case and like the feel of durable plastic.

    I've been looking over the 5S and it doesn't seem like that major of an upgrade for someone like myself.

    So basically it's just a side-grade? (Camera/Hardware/Etc)

    The 5C is not an UPgrade from a 5. At best it's a sidegrade. Internally they are fairly well matched. The 5S is much more beefed up inside.

    Maybe you should let your mom get a $99 5C and keep your upgrade for the 6 next year?

    keep the 5, give your mom a htc or a samsung.

    get a 5C or a 5S with plan and sell it

    boom, win win win
