Hey everyone

I am looking to buy an iPhone 5 or 5c since this is in my price range.
The only thing I care about in my phone is the camera.
Which phone is better at taking pictures and also if you have any other T-mobile phone recommendations that I can buy used for less than $250 that are good at photo taking please let me know. Thanks

iPhone 5c has slightly better cameras. May not seem like much on paper but the improvement in the front facing camera makes a pretty big difference.
Get the 5c, the aperture is larger on the front and back cameras although the megapixels are the same.

The 5 and 5C have the same rear camera, only the front camera was improved on the 5C.

The 5C is a bit thicker and heavier than the 5 and has a slightly bigger battery. It's a bit more durable than the 5 because of the plastic housing.

The 5 is very nice though, especially in black although my black one tended to scuff it was much cooler looking than any of the space grey variants.

I wish they still made black phones...
