If I was going to get one, I'd get the gray/black 5S.


The 5C doesn't look appealing to me in any of the choices though.

As I have a 5 I see no reason to upgrade to this, if I did I'd get the white thought. My 4S was white and I just referred that to my black 5

I'm more an every-other-cycle upgrade guy myself. I got a 5 as soon as I was eligible, and 6 (it should be 6 anyway) should be ready when I'm next up.


If I were getting a 5S, I'd get the black. Why bother with a special color when I'm just gonna put a Lifeproof case on it anyway? And if I were to leave my service, I'd splurge on a non-contract iPhone and take it to MetroPCS.

I assume everyone in this forum at least has their eyes on the 5s. What color are you looking to get?

You would assume wrong, However, if it was the only phone in the world and i didn't have a choice i would go with the Gray one.

Ugh, you guys really want a gold iPhone? That's so gaudy to me. I don't mind the silver/white as much, but I'd probably still go with the black.


I'm trying to decide between silver/white and space gray. Never wanted a white before now.

My 5S will certainly be black/gray.  I kind of wish they made an all black option, but oh well.

I decided to show some restraint for once and didn't order one. I'm beginning to not be a fan of these "s" interim upgrades that Apple uses to make money. I'll probably wait till next June and see what they have in store for iPhone 6.

Tough decision.


I like the black because the black frame doesn't distract from content as much as the white frame.


However now that iOS is mostly white, the white framed iPhones might actually be better looking.


If I decide to get the 5S I'll probably go with the Gold, since I've had both white and black iPhones in the past, just to switch it up a little.


Originally the leaked images made the Gold iPhone look ugly, but since it's such a light coloured gold, I think it looks pretty nice.
