    I wouldn't buy the case, but simply because of the price. $29 for almost any case is too expensive for what it is IMO. Way too many great $20 or less cases out there.

    It's pretty ugly, which is appropriate for the 5C.

    The whole thing makes me think of that thing where you're making a painting and it's turning out really bad so you decide to make it something crazy. I already don't like the colors of the iPhone 5C, and I could see the idea of putting a single-color case on top of something that already looks like it's wearing a single-color case might approach the equivalent of a painting that's turning out bad, so, they went for crazy.

    It's hideous. If it had come out from any other company, I think we'd be hearing a lot more chatter about how other companies don't have taste compared to Apple. It's also impractical. It will cause it to collect grime and dust. And I don't see how the holes serve any purpose.

    Hard to believe this is the same company that came out with the iPhone 4/iPhone 4S design.

    God awful, and ridiculously expensive for a silicon case.

    In my opinion, Apple is a creative company, but this time i have to wonder why Apple just copy its rivals' ideas, since the iPhone 5C's color is similar to the Nokia Lumia models, i am very disappointed.

    I think it looks amazing.

    Although I'd question the whole "being able to see hon" thing.

    I think they are quite funky personally. My only criticism is where it says 'iPhone' on the back of the phone. The holes have not been designed to show that neatly through the case. Seems silly when you see part of the letters through the holes? The colours are cool and the fact you can mix and match make them very appealing to youngsters I would imagine. :)

    I think you have forgotten quite a major series of events in Apple's history when you accuse the iPhone 5C of copying Nokia. This is not the first time Apple has released a series of products that come in a range of colours. Remember the 1997 iMac's? Remember the iPod Mini's, Nano's, shuffles, touch that all came in a variety of colours?

    Nokia and many other mobile phone manufacturers used to produce phones that came with covers that could be replaced with different coloured versions. It is not exclusive to the Lumia range, nor is it anything new for Apple. I think this is worth considering ;)

    Opinions on Holey iPhone 5C Case?

    I feel they're ugly and not very well thought of, since it shows the letters "hon" instead of "iPhone".

    Great answer, you are right. Hope Apple can bring people more creative iPhones.

    I think the case looks amazing. Amazing in a wtf it's so wrong so it has to be cool way. The only think stopping me doing this is the fact that the 5C's price is way to close to the 5S's price.

    The 5C wowed me but then I say what $100 more got me and sorry Apple, $700+ for a 5C, not a chance.
