    I'm definitely buying the 5S champagne but I kinda want the 5C in blue too to complete the collection.

    I'll probably end up getting the 5C at some point, I'll have to see the colors in person to decide which one I actually like the best though.

    Where's the option for those of us who prefer the 4/4s build, but want better internals? I'd take an iPhone 5S if it had the iPhone 4S build quality and form factor, but with better internals.

    Absolutely HATE the iPhone 5 design.

    Besides the physical look and (presumably) lack of better camera on the 5C. Will there be any other major differences between the 5S and 5C?

    Who knows...

    Put it in a letter to Tim Cook.... or wait 'til Sept. 10.

    I think I might go with blue... It looks really nice on the iPod touch 5 right now...

    Faster processor, RAM, likely a better GPU, and a fingerprint reader.

    Will you buy the 5C? 5S?

    Nah keeping my 5 that I bought with 64gigs. Spent way too much to buy another phone in 1 yr.

    But the 5c appears wider which I don't necessarily like. Also poorer camera which is a deal breaker if u can afford the more expensive iPhone.

    If I can sell my unlocked 5 at a decent price and the 5C has the same specs as the 5, I might get a 5C unlocked just because I like its uniformity more, and maybe use the extra (if any) on an Android phone like the Moto X or something.

    I'm also waiting for Sept 10 when we will find out about the 5C's specs. If they are similar enough to the 5S I will probably consider buying it. I haven't bought a new phone since I got my 3GS in 2009 lol. If not probably will look elsewhere :)

    I'd have to wait and see what the colors look like and the specs of the phone.

    I won't be buying this year but I very well may buy a 6C or whatever they call it next year. It'll come down to what's the better phone to me, the 6C or a used 5S. I'm to the point I can't justify $700 for a cell phone anymore.

    Probably sticking with my iPhone 5 and GS4, but might get a 5C for my wife to replace her 4S.

    I'll have to see what the 5S offers.

    Will be selling my iPhone 5 however not for the iPhone 5S or 5C but because I'll be getting a Galaxy S4 instead.

    Seems to be an overwhelming vote...Not many folks interested in the 5C..I won't be buying one, but won't be buying the 5S either...have my 5 and will wait for the 6. Saving for my wedding!

    Minus the 4 having the call drop problem when using the death grip, I think it was the perfect phone. It's weight and structure left me feeling confident about the device. I cannot say the same for the iphone 5. I wish they would revert the so called "5C" to the 4/4s dimensions.

    I see NO reason for anyone who already has an iPhone 5 to buy a 5S/5C whatever, the 5 is plenty fast enough with a great camera, and if it's the same size screen, you're not really getting anything new.
    Apple is lucky that I can wait another year on my 5, otherwise I'd switch to Android because WE WANT LARGE SCREENS.

    You mean other than the fact the iPhone 5 has crippled LTE for most of the world?
