What iPhone do you recommend and why?

-----------------
My opinion

https://www.macrumors.com/2013/12/16/qualcomm-employee-64-bit-a7-chip-hit-us-in-the-gut/

I recommend the iPhone 5c
Because of its stylish color and the design. To me and if u read the link above, I think the a6 isn't to different from the a7 and it doesn't affect my daily phone usage. I can easily do without touch ID and I like the iPhone 5c feel when you hold it...

Please post whether you recommend the 5s or 5c. Try and keep your answers from being too offensive or hostile towards others...

Thank you:)

I welcome and appreciate replies!!!

I haven't heard anyone say that the 5c is worthless, but personally I prefer the 5s and that's why I bought one.

It is. It's cheaper than a 5s. Everyone knows that the only reason people get a 5c is because they couldn't afford a 5s
That is very OFFENSIVE. I(and other 5c owners) find ur post DISCRIMINATORY and HOSTILE. I am not poor. I "probably" make more than u. I like the 5c for color and design but all the 5s owners brag and say it is for poor people. The 5s doesn't really bring much new compared to the 5c...finger print scanners have been around for years... Some phones already have them and half the time the touch id doesn't work... Idk if u have been to universal studios or Disneyland but u use a finger print scanner to get in(it is old tech). And the gold isn't anything special, it is glitter under the glass(2 yr olds know how to use glitter). The 5c has a larger battery than the 5s. The 5c back won't shatter when u drop it on the back or side. The 64bit processor is a joke, most apps don't run using 64 bit and there is no noticeable difference from the a6 chip in the 5c. 50% of 5c owners came from android...that is always a +1. And even though they say the five c hasn't sold a lot, they have sold tons and are very popular... They just didn't meet apples expectations. I've seen probably 30 5s iPhones but I have seen 60+ 5c iPhones. And again the 5c is not cheap, it costs $550 only $100 less than the 5s. Chances are if your in the market to buy a smartphone with data the $100 price isn't that big of a difference because u still have to pay $30+ in data each month.

No need to get hostile...just trying to prove a point...kindly but sometimes you 5s owners feel "special" because you have an "expensive" iPhone...

Sorry to shoot u down like this...


With respect,

^Report his post if you're offended by it.

But for the love of god...who cares? There are bigger things to worry about. A phone is not an expression of ones economic status. It's an iPhone. Not a Lear Jet that is being flown into Bora Bora for an extended vacation.

It's a public forum, no. And the comment was directed towards those who believe a 5S makes them superior to a 5C, 5, 4S, 4, etc. But happy holidays and good luck finding a solution.

This post isn't doing you any justice. You chose to purchase a CHEAPER phone. Stop trying to make the whole internet community help justify your decision that you seem to be regretting. If you weren't regretting it you wouldn't be so defensive.

There is no reason to be hostile or discriminate against people.
You have no idea what that word even means do you? You're like Fox News tossing around the word "socialist".

I don't get the "this is better than that" argument ...

They are not in the same league so why bother comparing ?!? Unless, you bought the 5C and now regret so want to justify paying that much to get the 5C when u could have gotten the 5S ...

The only suitable question for such comparison should be "Why did YOU choose the 5C or 5S ?" and everyone can list their points without comparison to the other ... simple

PLEASE READ INTRO POST TO THREAD (post #1)... I just want this to be a thread on if you recommend the 5s or 5c...state why you recommend it. Kindly state why YOU(and only you) prefer it over the other phone. That is all that needs to be said.

Thank you.

Come on, it's a public forum and that's akin to running to your mommy crying. Reporting should be for actual personal attacks.
Haha by no means am I saying it's warranted, just a suggestion for the OP to calm themselves down. Like grabbing a stress ball.

I prefer the 5S because it makes me feel richer than the people who buy 5Cs.

Hate to say it, but you worded your OP wrong. How would beginning it with the "worthless" comment be constructive to this?

EDIT: Now I see you've cleaned up your OP nicely.
