    If you could get the 5s specs in the 5c body and color choices would you switch?

    I don't get it, this poll doesn't make much sense. If someone wants the 5c why not get the 5c? It's the body that's the driving factor... especially when it's a $100 cost difference.

    My driving choice was the better camera and fingerprint reader, BUT I would love to have those specs in a 5c body, I'm tiring of the aluminium body of the 5.

    Yep. Love the colours and it's something different.

    Look on YouTube for iPhone 5c drop test, you'll likely quickly change your mind. I don't generally drop phones, but it's nice to know a S will stand up vs a C which won't.

    Yeah, I saw that, but think that was due to the drop of the c landing flat on the glass, the s, if you look closely didn't hit flat on the glass. I see what your saying but the jury is still out on durability and I just know my space gray iPhone 5s is going to look worse after a few months of use than the plastic would have.

    We will see;) But I just want something different, and color is nice...and I don't like cases.

    I'd rather have the 5s in a 5c body.

    I never was a fan of the two toned crap.

    Isn't a 5c two toned? black front, color back? If it was white front color back it'd be a little nicer to me.

    Ooh I never noticed that. I mean I wish the back of the 5s was all one color. If prefer a plastic back.

    Anything to avoid the scratch/ding/scuff prone aluminum can.

    I wanted a maybe option since I'd like to see the 5C first. But that option doesn't exist. Made me sad for a second.

    I handled the 5c today and it's exquisite! I'd love to see the option of 5s guts in a 5c shell.

    Well, seeing how the 5c doesn't come in Black, **** that. The yellow is nice though.

    I did too, reminded me of the 3GS... but felt cheap to me after owning the 5 and now 5s... wish they'd used silver metal buttons like the 3GS

    I think the 5c feels like my old iPhone 3gs, and I loved the feel of that phone!

    I still think the aluminium looks nice and all, but I always cover it in a case so whats the point, I would not cover the 5c, just wish we had that option.

    I was hoping for a black option as well. The grey/black 5s is where my money's going but if I got a 5c, the white is the only viable option for me.

    Bullpucky!
    The test I saw showed that the 5C survived the first 2 drops with virtually no damage.
    The 5S was damaged on the very first drop.
    The screen did finally break on the 5C but if it wasn't dropped at exactly the same height and if it didn't hit at exactly the same point as the 5S (and it didn't) then the screen breakage comparison is absolutely meaningless.
    Drop two different sets of phones using that completely unscientific method and you could just as easily have ended up with a completely different result.

    Looks like a surprising amount of 5s buyers would rather have the plastic body with color choice if they could.

    I like the aluminum body over the plastic somewhat. If I thought the plastic would wear better AND they offered colors I actually liked I could go the other way and want the plastic body :)

    Perhaps if they revamped the colors to darker, more vibrant ones. At the same time I like the "luxurious" look of the 5/5s compared to other phones
