A tri tone flash is a flag in which when you take a picture the iphone shines the perfect color of light to make the picture look perfect. The iPhone 5c has a plastic back. The two have airdrop, retina display(meaning you can't see pixels), siri, and more stuff.

  • Viewed from the front, the iPhone 5S does not have a white box icon on the main button like the one on the other two - even that has existed since the first generation iPhone! The buttons on the 5S now plain and features a touch fingerprint sensor ID. Yep, we can access the iPhone 5S with key fingerprint. Not just any lock screen, Touch ID is used as the Apple ID verification (AppStore and iTunes).As said earlier, this phone has a spacious third the same screen even specifications are also identical: a 4-inch multi-touch; IPS LED-backlit; resolution of 1136 × 640; density of 326 ppi; the retina display.Looking around the physical, the more obvious differences. iPhone 5 and 5S have the exact same housing but now the iPhone 5S has 2 recent color choices are gold (gold) and the Space Gray (dark gray) while the black color variant (like the iPhone 5) is no longer there and the color white (silver bright ) will be retained. On the other hand, the iPhone 5C has a completely new design, memorable "candy." Housing iPhone 5C bermaterial plastic and thicker, and has a choice of 5 different colors: green, blue, yellow, pink and white.
    In addition to thicker, iPhone 5C also heavier than both other iPhone. 5C has extra weight to 0.8ons (20 grams). Besides these differences there are also similarities that all the iPhone 5, 5C and 5S have placement volume buttons, silent switch, speaker, mic, lightning connector and 3.5mm audio jack are still the same.
    The Difference Engine - the iPhone 5, 5C, 5S.iPhone 5 and 5C powered by the same engine innards exactly the 1.3 GHz dual core processor Apple A6 and 1 GB RAM. That is, the screen and the machine sector 5 and 5C have the exact same abilities, just 5C now comes in a choice of colors candy. Although the design is exactly the iPhone 5, the iPhone 5S has a completely new engine innards. iPhone 5S is the first phone that has a 64-bit processor architecture, called the Apple A7 and M7 is equipped with

  • Best Answer:
    The iPhone 5S has a faster processor than the 5C. The 5S sports an Apple A7 processor, while the heart of the 5C is a 1Ghz Apple A6. The A7 is a newer, more powerful model than the A6, particularly because it's a 64-bit chip (the first in a smartphone, according to Apple). Because it's 64-bit, the A7 can process twice as much data at the same time as the 32-bit A6. Processor speed isn't as big a factor in smartphones as it is in computers (there are many other things that affect overall performance as much, if not more), and the A6 is very fast (it's the same processor as in the iPhone 5), but the A7 in the iPhone 5S will make that model a bit speedier than the 5C.

  • Perhaps the most immediately noticeable difference is that the iPhone 5s does not have a rounded square icon on the home button like the other two devices. Instead, it has a icon-free and less concave button with an embedded "Touch ID" fingerprint sensor. Consequently, the iPhone 5s can be configured with biometric identification rather than just a passcode.

  • I think the rear design was a little bit different too. didn't the C have a rounded back? i know the normal 5 has a metal bezel edge. the ring around the home button appeared on the 5s version - not on the original 5. i think the internal software was a little more basic, too, with less memory offered than the original 5. i think.
