I'd like to start by saying this is NOT an argument whether this phone is better than the 5s. I have had every iPhone including the 5s Gold. Just yesterday I sold it because they are still fetching 900-1000. Purchased a green 5C mainly because I didn't see a tremendous difference in the 5 and 5s. I also never used a password, ever. For me the fingerprint sensor was not being used. I get that for many it's great. But what amazed me is the feel. I realized I loved the rounded edges and the plastic. For some that may be crazy, but for me I would love to see the iPhones use plastic more often. Just my 2 cents for being on this forum since 2007. I wish the 5S came in plastic! Anyways it's not an argument just a thought. I love the thing, best iPhone I have ever experienced. The case has a nice texture too.
