BuyVia, a preference-driven shopping app and website, today released a guide for upgrading to the newly announced iPhone 5c and 5s. While select iPhone users should consider buying the iPhone 5s, they do not recommend upgrading to the 5c. The guide takes into account the associated costs with the new features and capabilities.
“The new iPhone 5s represents the top of the line in the iOS smartphone world. With its fast processor, speedy LTE network connectivity, improved camera, and security features, this phone represents a significant improvement over the current iPhone 5,” says Norman Fong, CEO of BuyVia. “People with iPhone 4 and 4S users should definitely consider upgrading. The difference in screen quality and everyday performance will be significant.”
In contrast, they were much less enthusiastic about the newly released lower-end iPhone. “The iPhone 5c is a different story. There is not a lot new there to justify iPhone users to upgrade. For people looking for a lower cost iPhone, they should just go with the iPhone 5s” continues Fong. "Saving $100 of $2000 (or 5%) and average user pays for service, over the two year commitment period, does not make sense. Moreover, power users should continue to consider the Android smartphones, especially with their larger screens, and advanced hardware features such as NFC and wireless charging."
For those looking to buy either of the new iPhones on launch day, here are some suggestions to minimize the hassles in getting this new hot phone. Apple, perhaps intentionally, did not allow pre-orders before the day that it was being released, in order to generate more demand.
