    I can't tell which iPhone is which anymore, they all look the same. They're pretty much all the same.

    The internals of the 5C are the same as the 5 (with a slightly larger battery), yet the case costs far less to make.

    Nothing is wrong with the 5 except its profit margins.

    I think simply to appeal to more customers. Instead of having two samey looking phones, they've now got different looking ones that will attract more users.

    Which phones are you referring to?
    What makes you state that?
    No point in posting a thread with a random statement thrown in there, without any kind of elaboration whatsoever.

    Of course he is. Look how long he's been a member. He probably already reported this thread to Samsung for payment.

    Lucky for Apple, there are MILLIONS of people that see it differently. Just look at their sales.

    It's like saying the 4S and 4 being out at the same time was too confusing. Start talking about the different Razrs if you want confusion. :p

    Actually, they're not the same. Just ask their mama.

    On a day to day basis, if I pass someone with the iPhone, I could not tell which one it was.

    Was it a 5? Was it a 4? Was it a 4s? If it was a 5s I wouldn't have been able to tell.

    And once a case is put on it, the difficulty increases. The point is that iPhones in hindsight are strikingly similar. Almost indistinguishable.

    You should find something else to look at on people you walk by now.

    and I can't tell if a person passing has an S2, S3, or S4, which Droid that is, or if that is the Lumia 9 or the Lumia 9123891238.
