    Depends on what carrier it's for I suppose I would say IMO it would be worth it if it's verizon model because you can use the 5c on verizon or at&t or tmobile and get lte on all.

    The only reason to switch a 5 to a 5c would be for the extra LTE support that you know for sure you will get on the 5c. With the 5, it more complicated, as later production models (basically, the T-Mobile versions) added more LTE band support.

    Also, whether you sell would depend on which carrier you intend to use, as not all phones can be activated on all networks.

    Aside from what's been mentioned here about better LTE functionality, a marginal upgrade in CPU and battery and iOS 7 over iOS 6 the decision is really down to your personal preference.

    Do you prefer plastic over metal?

    No point at all unless it's to get LTE if you currently can't on your i5 (like we in the UK can't with an i5).
    The i5 is basically the same phone but in a premium casing.

    Reception sucks on my i5, but so too does my mate's 5S (same network). I can't see the 5C having any better. My old iPhone 4 had much better reception (more signal bars in the same areas).

    It seems like you have your mind made up already. Do the trade then.
