I might upgrade in November next year when the contract on my 5 ends. There might even be a 6 by then.

No hurry.

 

It looks like the 5C is very much the same as the 5 anyway but with a thicker design.

RE: iPhone 5S and iPad 5 - Anyone Buying?

I have only just released that Apple have done away with the black design!

I wonder why that was?

 

I wouldn't buy another colour other than black.

RE: iPhone 5S and iPad 5 - Anyone Buying?

Space grey is quite nice actually. It is the new black. iPhone 5S models have two-tone colouring. This is black with grey.

All the models are described

All the models are described by their 2nd tone (silver, gold & space grey) instead of the base colour which is black or white.

I will have to check it out.  I am very much into my black.

I don't think doing away with

I don't think doing away with black altogether is a smart move. I hope they don't go down the same route with the iPad!

Maybe it fairs scratches better?  Mine still looks pretty slick, but a friend of mine had his in a fixed case for four months.  Took it out expecting it to be pristine and it was wrecked! Grit gets in and the small amount of movement in the case grinds away at the anodisation.  I put mine in a case for the first week, then didn't bother after that.  Heed this warning about fixed cases though, they do more harm than good!

I don't have mine in a case either, I like to keep it small for my pocket.

They haven't. They've only made it two-tone.

I guess this is the cheapest reliable Apple phone you can buy then?

I think I have found some good images:

It is only black at the top and bottom.

The front still looks the same though:
