    I have to admit, when I first saw the 5c color choices, all I could think about was how reminiscent they were of the Windows 95 Logo.

    Do you think the 5c would have been received differently if at least a couple of the colors had been more subdued or "tasteful?"

    I can honestly say I think you're the only person who had this thought.

    This.

    I think they're perfect for who Apple is trying to sell them to.

    Kinda like the plastic 5C, but the colours are too childish. Where is black or navy?

    That's entirely possible.

    ----------

    It would have been nice to have at least two colors that would be classified as "sophisticated," but maybe they don't want to cannibalize the 5s.

    Not that I am getting a 5C but they should have offered black.

    Colors suck for adults but are good for their target market. The marketing folks at Apple know what they are doing.

    I think the colours are decent, I like the Green and White ones. I do think that it is a bit too expensive for what it is though.

    I don't care for the colors, but the good thing is next year's iPhone 5CS is likely to feature new color choices.

    They're heinous IMHO. Great for kids I guess but not even in the ballpark for me.

    Haha yeah because in 18 years since Windows 95 no one has used those colours until now.

    EDIT: Good god its really been 18 years since then? Wow.
