    Aside from price and the fingerprint scanner on the 5s, is there any main differences between them both?

    I'm looking into getting a 5c, but I'm wondering whether getting the 5s is worth the extra money?

    I'm also not looking into the iPhone 6 either.

    The 5S is generally more powerful spec-wise, has a better camera and build quality, and since the 5C is basically a rehoused 5, will probably receive new iOS updates for longer. Right now though they're identical in terms of functionality aside from what you've pointed out. Get the 5S if you're intent on keeping the phone and want software support for as long as possible, get the 5C if you're after the most affordable iPhone you can get and are likely to get a new phone every couple of years.

    Although the specific parts are different, the iPhone 5, iPhone 5c, and iPhone 5s all have a 4" multi-touch IPS LED-backlit 1136x640 (326 ppi) "Retina" display, and the front of each is glass. Otherwise, the housing is quite different, particularly for the iPhone 5c compared to the other two models.

    The iPhone 5C does not have a X64 bit processor in it, therefore a bit less powerful. Though in general practice between the two you don't notice the difference

    Must have Siri! Even the iPod touch 5 has it. Siri is overrated imo.

    Oops, I stand corrected I was convinced it didn't have a Siri!
