    My plan was to initially sell my iPhone 5 when I purchased the 5S and now I'm wondering how the new 5C will impact the price at which I am able to sell my my 5 for since the 5C is basically the iPhone 5 in plastic.

    Will this plastic iPhone 5 take off or will people be more willing to spend a little more for a premium feeling original iPhone 5.

    Either none or it will make it more valuable. Not everyone wants a phone that looks like an Easter egg. If they had more subdued colors it may be a different story but with their choice of colors I don't think it will have a negative effect and on the end may make them more valuable.

    I think the 5 will be garner a high price than in the past on eBay and such. People looking to stay away from plastic and not go with the expensive 5S.
