I am a 4S owner, I got the phone two years ago. Home button is no longer working well, would like to upgrade... I am thinking about the 5C (32G) over the 5S for a few reasons 1. I think the 5/5S is too light. The 5C appears heavier, closer to the 4S weight (I realize it will be less dense) 2. I have had white glass/metal iPhones (4/4S) for a while. Would like something different, and the black/champagne colors don't grab me. I'm thinking yellow or blue for this 5C with a black case. 3. I would like to upgrade to the 6 when it comes out. I don't think they will upgrade the 5C next year, so I should get a good resale price for it. I will likely buy the 6 off contract. 4. I don't really need the fingerprint sensor. The A7 / M7 chips are nice, but not really necessary for what I do. The 5/5C will run fast for 2-3 years. 5. I will get the latest iPad, so I will have Apple's latest mobile tech in that device. The debate is that will the phone be seen as the "cheap" or "kids" phone when I bring it out for use.
