    My college student needs a new phone. Doesn't want another Droid. Wants an I Phone. Seems that the 5 is in the price range.

    Wants 32gb.

    5s or 5c?

    Where best to purchase? We are with Verizon.

    Anyone besides me think the Galexy s-5 is abetter choice? $47 at Costco.

    Thanks.

    If he/she want an iphone then who cares what others think its a better choice?
    They wont be the ones using it.
    You can find an iphone 5 and 5C for decent prices.
    You can also find deals on swappa and ebay.

    My wife and I both recently bought 5s 16gb phones, our first smartphones, and we are both extremely happy with them. We just really liked the size and build of the 5s. Just our opinion, we are happy iphone customers. We are also u s cellular customers.

    You can also get a 16gb 5S for $47.99 (subsidized) from Costco if they would be ok with not getting 32gb.

    Well for starters, if you are looking to buy new, the iPhone 5 is out and the 5C is not available in 32GB.

    Used, and if in a condition that's acceptable for the price, you can go for it. The iPhone 5 will be decent (not great or the best) for the next couple of years as long as the user does not upgrade iOS.
