    Haven't held both but the difference is 20g. Four US nickels weigh 20g if that helps!

    My 5C weighs 4.605 ounces, my 5S weighs 4.000 ounces.

    5C has an so slightly more "solid" feel in the hand.

    Having looked at both in the Apple store, you can feel the heavier weight of the 5c but the rounded edges do help making holding the phone very nice indeed.

    The 5c is far from a heavy phone if that is what you are concerned about.

    Agree, we got a 5C today and compared to my 5S, the 5C feels extremely solid and comfortable in the hand when using it for anything and everything.

    I have access to both the 5s and the 5c and the 5c feels a lot heavier. Did not like the extra weight tbh. Some people might like it though.

    I hate when my 4s falls on my face, looking forward to a lighter 5s soon
