    Which is a better purchase on a 2 year contract?

    iPhone 5 64gb for $99 or iPhone 5s for $199?

    If all you're going for is storage then the 5, but if you want to future-proof in terms of support, and better speed, get the 5S and iTunes match if you need it.

    Why do you ask? Do you actually get to make this choice? One implies a two year contract. The other, who knows where you are getting that. Who, besides a scammer on some website, is selling the iP5 64 GB for $99?

    It's left over iPhone 5 stock on a 2 year contract.

    The 5s is what the 5 should have been from the start so I'd go with that. It is buttery smooth and powerful.

    The 5 is buttery smooth and powerful. Not sure why the S version is what the non-S version should have been from the start--there's a reason why there's a non-S version and an S version exists.

    I'd say 5s unless you actually need more storage but can't afford a 5s with more storage.

    I voted 64GB iPhone 5 - the 5S is the better phone for sure, but I personally couldn't fit in 16GB at all. So I had to vote iP5 just based on the storage space alone.

    Other things being equal, I'd get the 5S.

    Or a 32GB iPhone 5C for $199 (if the $99 5 wasn't an option). $99 on contract for a new iPhone 5 64GB is a very good deal, though.

    Personally I think I'll go with iPhone 5s.though its expensive than iPhone 5 rather I prefer 5s.because everybody wants to keep update himself.

    Ask yourself why you need 64GB of storage?

    Get Dropbox and iTunes Match and your storage issue is resolved.

    I wouldn't be signing a contract for the iPhone 5 right now. The only way I would buy one is if you're buying it used.
