thats what im thinking because there are comparisons on the net from the 5 to the 5s and the 5s i played with for about 30 mins today was awful. The hardware was fantastic but the camera I just could not get right. It looked bad. I am debating if i should go back and return the 5 and grab a 16gb 5s obviously im going to eat $35.00 on the deal

i would suggest you try going to a different store and seeing if you get different results. That way you don't have to go through the hassle of returning your 5 first before "trying out" the 5S again. Just my 2cents.gif

Just upgraded from a 4 to the 5s. All I can say is THIS THING IS AMAZING compared to my 4 biggrin.gif

I see no point in people upgrading from the 5 to the 5s..

And I got to the Apple store, stood in line for 45 minutes (inside the mall) and was out of the store in 15 minutes. So it wasn't that bad thumb.gif

I used to have a iPhone 4 and i loved it. Only used it with iOS 4 and never bothered with iOS 5. I tried my friends 4 running iOS 7 and boy was it slow. 4 to 5S is a really good upgrade. Its like Galaxy S1 to S4. If only people would upgrade like that.

So I went and returned my Iphone 5 (I know im nuts) & I grabbed a green 5c. I really like the phone honestly and the Green casing is awesome. I thought the plastic casing was going to make it feel cheap but it does not do that at all. When I played with the blue display yesterday i was not impressed i think because i was holding the phone with that stupid theft proof sensor on the back which did not give me a great feel.

Anyways I really like this 5c, It does not feel cheap at all. Actually its very solid with some extra weight. the green is superb, Does not feel like im holding a cheap piece of plastic, Wifi & 4G are improved, Front facing cam has been improved & from what I can tell & im not sure if its actual or not but they said the new batt gives the phone 2 extra hours so only time will tell on that one.

 

my only complaint is that the phone is slippery. Yes Im a man but I have very soft hands and holding the phone in my hands makes it hard because it wants to slide of of my hands. I actually almost dropped the phone twice. other then that zero complaints :) love it since its my fave color

Being on Tmobile I have had android since the original G1.

my last phone was an HTC Amaze 4G and I also have a Galaxy S3 for work. Honestly I'm just sick of android at this point. It always bugs out on me after a while.

I got a white 5C friday. I didn't see much use in spending $100 more for a slow mo camera that I would never use or the faster CPU. I don't really play games on my phone and even if I wanted too the good games that would make use of it cost more money than I am willing to spend on a mobile game since they don't keep my attention very long.

I have to say this being my first iPhone am I rather happy about it. Its much snappier than any android phone I've ever had, web pages load exponentially quicker using wifi. There is no lag that I have seen. The speakerphone is actually amazing. Loud and has decent bass which is good since my hearing loss in the higher frequencys makes normal speaker phones hard to hear.

Being a musician as well I have to say JamUp Pro (guitar amplifier application) and Garage Band on iOS is probably the greatest thing of all time.

iTunes radio seems like a more convenient Pandora.

All around I am happy about it. thumb.gif
