From what I can tell, all three are the same physical size with the same screen resolution (correct?). And all can come with any of the carriers, ATT, Sprint, Cricket, T-Mobile etc., right?

5s has a somewhat faster processor, and a longer-lasting battery. Anything else?

5 and 5s can come with 8GB, 16GB, 32GB, or 64GB.

5c (I think) originally came with only 8GB memory, right? But recently I've seen 5c phones for sale with 16GB or more. Do they now come with more than 8GB? 5c also comes in more colors, for those who like colorful cases.

Anything else?

Inquiring minds want to know!

The iPhone 5C could be had with up to 32gb of flash storage. The 5S has the fingerprint sensor and is a year newer than the other two, with a faster processor.

The 5 has a single flash for the camera; the 5S (and presumably the 5C) has 2.

The 5S can film slow motion video; the other two can't.

The 5 came out a year before the 5S and the 5c. The 5 S was the flagship iPhone that year and had improvements over the 5 ( the previous year's flagship). The 5c did not have the newer features and was basically a 5 encased in plastic.
