In the last few months, we’ve all seen the commercials and ads about Apple creating and releasing yet another iPhone. The iPhone 5c and iPhone 5s, two different phones that were added to the Apple product line toward the end of summer, have become quite popular.

The phones are said to have several similarities but also have a few differences from the regular iPhone 5, which was released months ago. Sprint, Verizon, AT&T and T-Mobile customers around the world are able to purchase the phones, according to Apple, but the question is—which phone is the better choice and what makes the two phones different from the six other iPhones released by Apple?
New Colors and Camera App for the iPhone 5c
The iPhone 5c, recognized as the first color iPhone, comes in pink, white, yellow, blue and green, according to Apple. Along with new colors, the phone’s frame is steel reinforced. There is also a new camera app and high-definition video. Users can shoot images and take videos in different formats and choose one of eight filters to add personality to pictures. The starting price for this phone is $199.
The iPhone 5c differs from the iPhone 5 and earlier models simply because it is built with plastic materials. The other models were prepared with stainless steel glass, according to Gizmag. It also has a better battery and users are able to use it in more countries due to its LTE bands, according to Apple.
The iPhone 5s has Fingerprint Identity Sensor
The iPhone 5s, recognized as “forward thinking” according to Apple, boasts 16GB, 32GB or 64GB capacity sizes. According to Apple, “iPhone 5s is the first 64 bit smartphone in the world.” It offers more than the 5c and 5.
This iPhone includes the fingerprint identity sensor, which is not a feature on any other iPhone device. Like the iPhone 5c, the iPhone 5s has the option of color: silver, gold or gray. A customer reviewed the iPhone 5s on the Apple website by saying, “It’s the best iPhone yet and brings innovations that just work beautifully.”
The 16GB version of the iPhone 5c retails for $199, 32GB for $299 and 64GB for $399.
What’s the Difference?
According to Apple, the iPhone 5c and 5s have pretty much the same features. As far as the weight dimensions of the phones, the iPhone 5c is slightly taller and weighs more. The battery life on both devices has improved to 10 hours. The speed has enhanced with everything moving faster in both phones. The FaceTime camera is different. According to Apple, it now has a 720p high-definition video recording and a new backside illumination sensor. There is also an iSight 8 mega-pixel camera which helps with the resolution and lens. iOS 7 is also offered for the devices.
The Samsung Galaxy S4 is another comparable smartphone on the market. It is currently in competition with the iPhone 5c and 5s. According to Verizon, the Android allows for individuals to answer their phone by waving their hand. It also gives people the option to erase unwanted people and things from their pictures.
“Apple is known for being the most popular smartphone producer because of the ease of use and the apps,” a representative from Verizon said. “However, Samsung is right behind them because they have the best technology and features put into their phones and actually have more apps then Apple because it’s an Android device and Android is the biggest market for apps right now.”
According to Apple customers, the iPhone is described as “the best smartphone on the market.” A poll by Canaccord, which appeared in Forbes in October, showed that the iPhone 5s topped sales charts for all four major wireless carriers. The Galaxy S4 outsold the iPhone 5c on the T-Mobile and Verizon networks.
As Apple continues to make more products, people will continue to buy them. Pretty soon, more than half of the world will own at least one Apple product whether it’s one of their iPhones, iPads or iPods. Technology just continues to change.
