iPhone 5S vs 5C

Over the past few months, my Sprint family plan, consisting of my brother, Serena and Jake, has been making a mass exodus that has finally culminated in us moving to AT&T as of this month. Compared to Sprint, we have a slightly more expensive plan– we are now sharing 6 GB of data across our 3 phones for $59 apiece. But we are probably getting our money’s worth with the higher data speeds and more reliable coverage.

Phone-wise, Serena and Jake have gotten subsidized 5S’s under contract, and I am currently using a green 5c without contract. I’ve been pretty happy with my 5C so far, and am starting to wonder if it is worth it to pay $200 to upgrade to a 5S. The fingerprint sensor on the 5S is fun but unnecessary, and the only appreciable difference seems to be the camera. Jake, have you had a chance to put it through the paces yet? I think the slo mo camera is fun, but that true tone flash is really the only thing that is potentially useful.

I do tend to think that it’s a waste to be paying full price on service fees without making the carrier pay off a subsidized phone. What would you do if you had an upgrade but was not super impressed by the current phone? Would you wait a year off contract?
