With two different iPhones hitting the same price point, which one has more appeal to you?

What's the best $199 iPhone value?

For $199 with a 2-year agreement, iPhone customers can choose between the 16GB iPhone 5S and the 32GB iPhone 5C. Would you trade the newest

Starting Friday, September 20, consumers will have a choice -- one never seen from Apple before: two new phones, the iPhone 5C (32GB) and iPhone 5S (16GB), both selling for $199 with a two-year agreement.

Both have their appeal; the 5C comes in five different colors, running on Apple's A6 processor like the original iPhone 5. Whereas the 5S lands in three other colors, running Apple's newer A7 processor, accompanied by the M7 movement-sensing chip, a new camera, dual LED flash, and fingerprint recognition.

Both iPhones are running iOS 7; the 5S runs on a 64-bit version.

For those consumers looking to renew a wireless contract, which one appeals to your needs more? The extra capacity for more photos, apps, and music? Or the more advanced features of the 5S?
