    I'm planning to upgrade my iPhone 5 but seeing that a 5C is basically a colored 5, will the 5C help or hurt my ability to sell my iPhone 5 at a decent price. I think people will always pick metal over plastic if given the choice generally but I hope people won't look at at the 5 as too dull now. :confused:

    a lot of people will pick metal over plastic, but nearly everyone will pick new over second hand.

    Negatively. Or somehow else. Maybe positively.

    people forget that MOST people are not eligible for an upgrade. So selling a 5 private is gonna be the same as selling the current phone when a new one drops every year.

    5's will fetch anywhere from $300-$480 depending on condition, carrier and gb

    Most people will not go for second hand products, especially in such a price range as the iPhone 5's.

    No telling. None of us knows the future. If you believe the vocal majority here (I don't), no one wants the 5c anyway.
