In fairness probably neither. As someone else has said the 5C isn't that much of a jump from the 5.

As I'm in a two year cycle I'll wait until the next version but it will be the "full fat" variant. So if they follow convention, the 6 rather than the 6C

I suspect.

Of course something else entirely may have appealed by then.

Already got the iPhone 5, love it, no need to upgrade yet. iPhone 4 I had before that was and still is perfectly adequate, I just needed an extra handset.

I will be getting the 5S off contract.

Pricing for the 5C & 5S is now showing on the UK Apple store. 5C starts from £469 & the 5S starts from £549.

I thought the 5C would have been cheaper. As the price difference between 5S & 5C is not massively different, I will push the boat out & get the 5S. Will be a big upgrade for me, as I have been using a 3GS for 4 years. The 3GS has been a great phone & I have had my money's worth from it.

If you can afford a 5C you can afford a 5S.

Good luck I would be honest though and buy a 5 refurbished from eBay save yourself a lot of money.

I'm sorry to hear that mate. Hopefully she'll see some sense before she commits to buying one.

Nope. The next Nexus, unless it's over 400 or rubbish, but I can't see either of those happening. Until then my olde S2 is still working.

Oh ok i thought it sounded abit weird that they'd give a case away for free, its just how it read made it sound like it came with the phone.

To be fair they could have thrown one in, i mean people are spending 450-600 quid

My 2 teenage girls both wanted an iPhone 5 as an upgrade from their Galaxy Ace's which their upgrade date is the 18th with Three.
Currently Three have an up front cost of £29 for the 5 so it will be interesting to see what they do for the 5C as it equates to around £63 at the moment going by the US price.
I'm sure they will be pretty gutted if they wait 2 days and it costs more for the 5C instead of the 5.
Hopefully they release their prices before the 18th.

Honestly it probably better just to upgrade early in shop as then you don't get horrible plastic look and it will still support main lte network. Basically it comes down to do they like the new colours or not.

There's nicer leather cases on the market at the same price.

Defo buy one as I dropped my Iphone 5 and got many chips on the side of it. If you don't use cases it will be hard to keep the phone good.
