    I have a 5S, and today my friend showed me his green 5c.

    I just don't get it. Why does the plastic feel/look so much cooler than other plastic phones???

    Because you prefer the look and feel of it? I personally don't like the way they look(although the plastic does "feel" sturdier than most other plastic phones).

    Ha ha well it's about damn time. You actually took time to read the thread though ... Wow. You love talking about the iPhone 5c.

    Which btw is a great device in itself. Nope not as good as the 5s, but good in its own right...

    ----------

    I really don't like the look of any of them except the blue and white one. The others are not great at all, but as far a running iOS 7 it does a phenomenal job... Which is all I need it to do while I'm waiting for the iPhone 6 to come out ... So I can stay away from the design of the 5/5s

    For that I say THANK YOU APPLE

    Oh I still think the 5C is an outdated joke right out of the box. I just wanted to be nice to all the 5C owners here:)

    Lol your posts always amuse me. However personally I don't mind using the outdated joke for another few months. As long as it keeps me off of that design flawed iphone 5/5s then I'm great and come September I'll have a beautiful iphone 6!

    At that time you and I may agree on things lol

    It's coated with high-quality anti-scratchness.

    I have a 5, and to be honest I think I like the 5C more.

    Something about it just feels fresh and nice. I really want a Blue 5C but i'm not wasting a 2 year upgrade on one.

    Oh well.

    I don't blame you. I wouldn't waste an upgrade on it especially if you have a 5. It's the same phone just a different (better IMO) design and that's it. The benchmarks are the se and everything.

    I have the 5s and think the 5c is nice. It's good to change it up. Some of the colors I like and some I wish they would add like Orange. They don't feel as plastic-like most people are saying. The price is even sweeter too. I purchased the 5c for my parents with the change I found in my car. :cool:

    The design of the iPhone 5s/5 is much better than the one on the 5c.

    For some, for others the opposite is true.

    Ah yes I did. Best Buy had them for $0.00 plus tax. $1.08 :cool: That's a good deal considering the iPhone 5 (under contract) never got to the free offer state like the iPhone 4/4s. So to get an iPhone 5c for $1 under contract is sweet. When they are ready to sell them, I would have made a 100% profit atleast.

    Ah yes I did. I told them you need to upgrade, let me buy you an iPhone :)

    A contract price is not the real price. They are paying for it in their carrier contract.

    You have no clue what you're writing??? First of all I was not talking to you. Second I do know what I was writing.

    In your opinion you like the 5/5s. IMO I cannot stand it. I despise the ugly ass two toned aluminum. As a matter of fact it can't die it's death soon enough. It's one of the worse designed Apple products I've ever seen and that's my opinion.

    As a matter of fact wth were you writing?

    ----------

    Ha ha ha... That's your opinion not mine ... However I respect your opinion so RESPECT mine.

    I despise the 5/5s literally. I hope the design dies very soon like...

    I have a 5s, and if they made the 5s in a plastic shell I would have bought that instead. I use my phone naked, and no matter what anyone says it needs to be babied to keep it in flawless condition. I could be much more "careless" if the phone was plastic.

    One of the benefits of a 5c over a 5s is the fact that, when it's caseless, I feel more able to put it down on surfaces without scratching up a bunch of aluminum and glass. I'm very happy with the 5c form factor.

    Having said, that (and as a 5c owner) I'd probably prefer the 5s for the camera (and more future proof internals, of course). I got the 5c because I needed a phone but the 5s was quite out of stock when it came out.

    I prefer the 5c when it's naked, but I'm always going to have a case.
