    Someone suggested to get a 5c instead of a 4s b/c its not much more expensive. However, it looks funny like a toy like play doh or something when you look at the design.

    thats a matter of opinion but if i had the choice between the 4s and 5c i would choose the 5c. LTE alone is worth dealing with the plastic casing.

    This is a thought provoking thread, it made me reconsider everything I thought I knew. OP, you're a true visionary, a philosophical genius if you will.. I mean;

    "it looks funny like a toy like play doh or something when you look at the design."

    Wonderfully put, I couldn't have said it any better.

    It feels like a very solid phone in hand. Maybe the colors look "childish", but the phone itself feels very premium.

    Kind of like that TH55 guy. I put him on the ignore list but found that I still see his threads just not his posts, so I'm still getting trolled. I wish ignore means that I would not even see the threads started by the person.

    Thought u got a 4S already? IMO, you should have gotten the 5C. It's a much better phone all the way around. It's actually very solid and the plastic feels really good in the hand. I don't really know what you mean by "it looks funny" other then maybe the color choices. But if that bothers you, get white.

    Just curious...How old are u?

    Or put it into a case(which I believe he was planning to do with the 4s anyway).

    De gustibus non est disputandum...

    If you like it...buy it.

    If you don't...don't buy it.

    Must go lie down from all this lively discussion and excitement...:eek:

    :rolleyes: ;)

    Be careful. Last time I did so my iPhone slid out of my pocket and slid across the hardwood floor. It didn't crack or anything but caused a slight palpitation with my heart.
    Perhaps I should start a thread regarding that experience. . .

    ;)

    I think it's a great looking phone, but bear in mind Borat's advice on iPods - which applies to the iPhone 5c too.

    Thanks for the warning...I have my iPhone permanently Super Glued to my body (sorry, I can't mention where:eek:) to avoid just such an eventuality!;)

    I like it. Honestly it's a very solid device. It's easy to buy a case for if you really don't want any of it showing. The phone itself feels very solid in my hand and it's never had any performance issues. It has 4G LTE and the same great display as the 5s. To me, I care more about performance than looks. The 5c is a definite upgrade to the 4s, no doubt about that.

    I'm the one who recommended it in your other thread right? ;-)

    It looks ugly. Don't get the white one. That one is really really ugly.

    There is little question that the iPhone 5C bears a rather unique and in fact startling resemblance to play doh. I'm astonished that someone hasn't mentioned this before.

    You give this thread too much credit. It had nowhere to deteriorate to.
