iPhone 5 vs. iPhone 5C vs. iPhone 5S, spot the difference

For the first time in years, Apple has announced two design variants of the iPhone — the colorful iPhone 5C and the aluminum-clad iPhone 5S. We’ll break them down to you so you’d easily spot the difference.

In this table, we compare the iPhone 5 vs. the iPhone 5C and the iPhone 5S.

If you will notice, the iPhone 5C is basically the same as the iPhone 5 but with a colored polycarbonate body, heavier weight and thicker dimensions (8.97mm vs. 7.6mm). The iPhone 5S has the same body construction but different color and slightly better hardware as indicated in the table above. There’s also the inclusion of Touch ID which we discussed here.

You can read up on the detailed features of the iPhone 5S here and the iPhone 5C here.

We’re also including the expected retail price based on the HK Apple Online Store. Take note we included iOS7 to the iPhone 5 since the update will be out this September.

    I am an Android user. Please don’t get me wrong. I love my device. Really I do. If only i could find a way to connect my device to a projector, life would be much easier. The fact that you can connect an iPhone to a projector is nice.
    malamang sasabihin nyo may laptop naman. pero mabigat na ang projector, mabigat pa din ang laptop.
    So ang tanong ko lang if I am an Android user at gusto ko mag-upgrade ng phone at ang trabaho ko nagrerequire ng mga powerpoint presentation at projector, okay ba na iPhone 5s ang piliin ko?

    I find Apple’s definition of “cheap” medyo out-of-touch.
