    I had no idea that when I bought this phone that it would be such a hot topic to everyone I come across. Okay maybe I did, but it's much more of a hot topic conversation starter than I thought. I've already had five people come up to me and ask me about the 5C.

    Have you guys gotten any interactions lately? :)

    Well mostly when they do talk to me, it's kind of comparing their five to the 5C. And I always have to tell them that aids pretty much the same phone but it's in a better case.

    Why do you feel you need to lie to them?

    Alllriiiggghhttt! Here we go again!

    Plastic is better than metal. OK. That's why the iPhone 5s comes in multicolor premium plastic and costs $100 more than the iPhone 5c. Got it, thanks!

    Well one of their questions was is it more durable, I said yes and let her touch it because she wanted to.

    And we both agreed this is not normal plastic. It is beyond what I've seen. It's like a plastic metal hybrid.

    But does anyone else have the 5c with reactions?

    Can you honestly say it's in a better case? I mean is plastic better then aluminum? Idk! I chose the 5C because I was getting tired of the same old design, but to say its a better case is stretching a bit I believe

    Well of course it's better. It doesn't scratch, or get hot. Or slippery. lol :)

    I'd never go back to the iPhone 5.

    I have the white 5c and I think it's a nice device. It's everything the iPhone 5 was with a few improvements and the iPhone 5 was a monster.

    To each his own. I prefer the feel of metal that the iPhone 5 gives me. My iPhone has has no scratches and rarely does it get very hot.

    Even more, it's black. Solid black and not multicolor. Which I prefer, but can no longer get with either new iPhone.

    Oh, I wouldn't go to a 5 now, the 5C truly is a nice phone, but I say the iPhone 5 and 5s is as well. They all 3 are made beautifully. Like I said before I just got the 5c for a change for a year.

    This is my main gripe. No black. The 5c would be great all black

    Isn't the iPhone 5c a little bit more weighty than the 5/s? I thought I read that.

    You would think that it was one of those cheap devices that was in the rumors. But the thing is what Apple did was they really reinvented what plastic is. Because this is different from any of the plastic I've ever seen.
