The major point of difference that makes them poles apart is the design factor. The Apple iPhone 5S is designed with the aluminum build and comes in three colors – white, black and gold. It is same as iPhone 5 with a stout build quality using high end metals, resilient gorilla glass and other classy materials. It is as light as its predecessor.
The Apple iPhone 5C is entirely different from the above description. It is made from a single piece of hard- coated polycarbonate with an inside steel cage thrust for stability. And it is available in white, green, pink, blue and yellow colors.
iPhone 5c is different from all other models by Apple and this is what makes it unique in its own way. It is an innovative and fresh approach towards a smartphone. Although it comes with same dimensions as earlier model but weighs a bit heavier. If the design factor does not bother you, then it’s definitely worth consideration.

The next chief variation slouches in the processing power of each device. Apple has created an aura of digitalization on the next level by launching the iPhone 5S with a 64-bit A7 system-on-a-chip. It is the first smartphone to work on such a processor. Furthermore, Apple has included an M7 motion coprocessor. This feature is designed to shed some work load from A7 and enhance power efficiency.

The iPhone 5S attributes an f/2.2 camera whereas the iPhone 5C has an f/2.4. For better low light performance and sensitivity features, it has a huge sensor and employs 1.5 micron pixels as strength. The iPhone 5S camera can record 120 FPS 720 slow motion videos and with its unsurpassed new feature True Tone Flash, it does wonders. The iPhone 5S has two different color lights for flash.
