Default Iphone5s vs Iphone5c

hey guys
Getting new phones in the next month and was wondering about what everyone thinks about the new iphone5s and 5c. Really looking for a good durable phone and it will be getting a otterbox or life proof case on it.

I know the 5s has a faster processor but is it worth the extra?

Also the it has the finger print scanner and i could care less about that.

The 5s has a metal construction and i would think it would be more rugged but the plastic of the 5c has more give when dropped and that might help it.

Opinions? thoughts?

I keep seeing articles about the 5cheap being a flop, and not selling, that is enough for me to think its worth the extra coin for a 2 year investment you will use daily

The 5c is essentially a 5 with minor changes and a different, plastic shell. With the 5s, you have the latest and greatest offering from Apple. This could be good or bad. I'd go with the 5s because it seems more if an improvement over the 5, and not just a a cheaper 5 with a cool colored shell.

Also, I probably wouldn't worry about the plastic vs metal casing if it is going in an otter box or the like.

I'm wondering the same thing.
I have 4s ( 2 years)and battery is not staying charged. I live in a poor reception area. Verizon is the best coverage, so I'd stay with them.
But should I just get a new 4s for 49$ or pay more and go 5s?
Or is there a phone that gets more signal and is sturdy ?
Thanks

I have an iphone4 through work and i cant stand it. The camera sucks it doesnt have anyway to add a memory card. It was cool at first but the novelty of having an iphone wore off quickly. Ive used my dads iphone5 and still wasnt impressed. The old ladies samsung skyrocket is awesome/faster/better camera and apps and is older.
