    I have an idea for a new iPhone case: it is a thin, colored plastic back shell that snaps onto an iPhone 5 (or any iPhone or phone for that matter) to imitate the hipster look of an iPhone 5C? I would use an autodesk program to make the product, then send it to a fabrication facility to mass produce. They would retail for about $10-15. Would you as a consumer be interested in my product? ;)

    Would cost a lot to make
    Unless you ordered a few thousand.

    Agreed. While they can definitely do small runs of the various cases - it would cost a lot. In order to get it to that $10-15 price point a serious commitment to a manufacturer would be required.

    Honestly not sure why someone would want to make a $200 phone look like a $99 phone?

    Some like the look of the 5C, colors and all but the internals of the 5S are superior.

    I have an Apple leather case on my phone. It is the lime green one. I have been asked 4-5 times now if it's the 5C. So... I think it may be close enough for those that want something like this.

    You case would also have to be devoid of the Apple logo. I feel this would cause the phone to look more or less like every other minimalist case out there...

    If you're talking about mimicking the (gorgeous) curves of the 5c, I don't see how that would be possible without extending the bezel by several millimetres all round and artificially increasing the depth of the phone?

    If you're simply suggesting a range of pastel cases then you're competing with this sort of product. Sure, yours might be a better fit and a better colour match to the 5c, but when you're up against those kinds of prices you're going to have a very hard time convincing people that $10+ is justified.

    Apple logo can be achieved with the window just like Otterbox

    its not about the price...Its about the experience

    For some that $99 5C is worth a million and $200 5S worth....nothing because they don't care to own it or don't like it.

    For me my 5S is worth $900 because thats what I paid for it....

    Personally I would love to get case that would/will make my iPhone 5S look like a 5C from the back...the 5C feels soo solid and the curves make it more comfortable to hold and type on that the 5S.

    Only if you made them in space gray, silver, and gold. Or ones that match the leather cases.
