Would want to see the yellow and white with white screens. The fake 5s button looks good, I had one on my 5 and people always thought it was real lol. Nothing beats real touch ID though.

Nice frankenphone!

So I assume touch ID is aesthetic and not actually functional as anything but a home button?

Correct. Just works as the usual plain home button. Looks cool though.

I also am thinking of getting a 5S style home button but instead of the ring being silver/chrome, it will be blue to match the rest of the phone.

I remember when I seen the 5c for the first time... Man was I pissed. I said they should have went with the white front because it looks way better. This just proves how right I was, and im getting mad thinking about it.

This looks amazing! Even if you voided the warranty, you further proved the 5C would have looked much better with a white front.

Can someone send this thread to Apple and show them what they did wrong?

On a side note, that background looks awesome. Can you post a link so people could download it, please?

Think it's possible to transplant the guts of a 5S into a 5C housing with functional Touch ID?
No, not possible

----------

Nice! I can see the back is from a 5C blue, bot is the front from a white 5C, because it looks like a 5S from the front. So you bought two iPhone to create this expensive piece of techno-art.
It is most likely a regular 5 screen. Pretty sure the 5s screen doesn't fit. I doubt he bought two iPhones, all you need to buy is the screen

where can i get a fake 5s button?
eBay, DHGate, AliExpress

That looks terrific!

I think any and all 5C's would benefit from a white screen.

I think they should of given the option for black and white. It might of caught even more eyes.

This would be spectacular. I would be down to order something like this. 6c's future maybe?

eBay. About 5 bucks + shipping. You can also spend the extra money to buy a real 5S ID home button, then rip all of the cables and such off and use that (the aftermarket style is metal and wears the colour easily)

Possible, yeah, worth it? Definitely not. There are always some alterations you can design in the cases and such, plug and play? No.

The 5C came in all crushed in one of my salvage iPhone lots so I decided to change some things. :)

As to the backround, go to HD wallpapers on iOS7 iOS App, go to abstract, go through page 1 - 20 and you'll find it.

BTW I am sure that Apple will start making 5C's with white screens, and black plastic housings. (I might go do that too...lol)

they did it on purpose. To force people to buy the white faced one when they release it. :apple: masters of manipulation ;)

Obviously I'm in the minority but I don't like the white face with the blue housing. I wondered why Apple went with black only and u can see why. It just looks wrong.
