Alongside the iPhone 5S, Apple also announced a new variant of the iPhone titled the Apple iPhone 5C. And today, we’re here to provide you information about some of the main differences between the Apple iPhone 5S and the Apple iPhone 5C.
Differences Between The Apple iPhone 5C and the Apple iPhone 5S:
Below is the detailed list of some of the main differences between the Apple iPhone 5C and the Apple iPhone 5S:
Let’s begin with the Apple iPhone 5S. Being the latest successor to the iPhone flagship series, the Apple iPhone 5S comes with an Aluminium body, similar to its predecessors.
Yet few design changes can be observed in the camera sensor space and the home button in the iPhone 5S. The camera on the iPhone 5S now comes with a new dual-tone flash, and the home button in the iPhone 5S has been redesigned to accommodate the new Fingerprint scanner, which Apple termed as “Touch ID“.
Whereas the Apple iPhone 5C is entirely different from the earlier iPhones that we have seen. The Apple iPhone 5C comes with a polycarbonate uni-body design and has a glossy shine similar to other plastic polycarbonate made Smartphones out there. Unlike the Apple iPhone 5S, the Apple iPhone 5C is available on 5 different colors: Pink, White, Yellow, Blue and Green.
Apple iPhone 5S has seen some minor and major improvements than its predecessors. On the specifications side, the Apple iPhone 5S now comes with an Apple designed A7 chip with 2 GB of RAM which also accommodates a secondary M7 chip which collects and processes data’s from the various sensors on your iPhone 5S. Apple also boasts the Apple iPhone 5S to be twice faster than its predecessor and as much as 40 times faster than the original iPhone. The Apple iPhone 5S comes with a 1570 mAh battery that improves the battery life of the Apple iPhone 5S to a very large extent.
Whereas, the specifications of the Apple iPhone 5C resembled very much for last year’s Apple iPhone 5. It comes with an Apple engineered A6 chip and 1 GB of RAM. The Apple iPhone 5C comes with a 1507 mAh battery, which is still better than the iPhone 5 by a small distant.
iPhone camera’s are always appreciated for their clarity and precision. And the camera of the Apple iPhone 5S is expected to be a Chartbuster. The Megapixel count on the Apple iPhone 5S is similar to the iPhone 5. However, Apple has added more pixels into the sensors, which results in more light entering the picture thus helping to reduce noise in the resulted picture. Also, Apple has put in a f/2.2 aperture to the iPhone. A new “Dual-Tone” flash has been included to replace the existing LED flash. The Dual-tone flash setting automatically adjust its dark and light flash lighting condition depending on the external environment in which the picture is captured. And the Dual-Tome flash can emit flashlights with up to 1000 different color combinations. The Apple iPhone 5S also has a 1.2 MP front-facing Facetime camera that can also shoot video in 720p HD.
When it comes to the Apple iPhone 5C, it has a 8 MP camera, LED flash and a f/2.2 aperture which can also do Full-HD video recording like the iPhone 5S. It also has a 1.2 MP front facing camera similar to the iPhone 5S that too can shoot videos in 720p HD.
We all expected the iPhone 5C to be a mid-range Apple device, when overlooked to its specifications. However, the Apple iPhone 5C is only $100 cheaper than the iPhone 5S.
The Apple iPhone 5S will cost you $199 on any carrier with a 2-year contract and $649 off-contract.
Whereas, the Apple iPhone 5C will cost you $ 99 with a 2-year contract and $549 without contract.
