Assuming that it's the same screen, same camera, same processor, same speaker quality as the iphone 5, then I would consider it.
Why? The aluminum that Apple uses, though it's a metal, just isn't always a great idea for a phone.

It bends, and it deforms pretty easily. Not to mention scuffs that were present from day 0.

With plastic, I do not feel the need for a case. A 5c naked will be thinner than a 5 with a case, and likely more durable.

Then again, I'm a person who doesn't like aluminum for macbooks either, yet like everyone else, I buy them anyway b/c there's nothing else like it so I deal with aluminum.

I will never sell my iPhone 5 for a 5C. If I do end up selling my 5, it will be to move up to the 5S.

Still a lot of insiders who are guessing that the iPhone 5C isn't even designed for American and some Eurpean markets. Rather it's a low cost budget phone for the Asian markets.
Talk nerdy to me!

I feel the same way! I think the jump from 5 to 5S won't be nearly as big as the jump from 4 to 4S. I hope they prove me wrong.
