    What is your least favorite iPhone and why? Mine would be 6/6+ series. I am not crazy about the form factor. I also don't like how iOS 8 runs on the 6 Plus.

    iPhone 5C

    Totally overshadowed at release by the iPhone 5S, comes in only one decent color, inferior build quality to the device it replaced (iPhone 5). Worst resale value relative to time on the market of any iPhone ever.

    I agree with this statement, but I think the 3G was pretty bad, it just changed the design of the 2G and added some specs. Not much of a change, but the 5C to me was more of a marketing strategy for Apple which worked successfully as I saw people upgrade from iPhone 5's to 5C's.

    Yeah, the iPhone 5C wasn't too good. They were basically calling a 1 year old phone brand new. It should have come in some darker colors.

    3G/3GS. Cheap and plasticky feel in the hand (although comfortable to hold). Worst build quality of all the iPhones. Also a bit chubby.

    I voted 3G. Went 3G, 4, 5, 5s and now 6 Plus.
    PS: The 3G is now my wife's official solitaire game. That's all it's used for . . .

    I gotta say the iPhone 4. It was the phone that was admittedly defective by Apple, due to "Antenna-gate." They rushed it to June with all the leaks happening before it, while they should have kept it on the September/October refresh cycle as they originally had for that phone, which is what they have had for the 4S and beyond, and fixed the Antenna issue before launch of the 4.

    5C for me. Not a bad phone, but just a bit gimmicky with the colors and materials.

    I'd be inclined to say the 3G - Terrible performance and worst OS update support. Not a fan of the 6 due to the lack of a 4 inch model but its a perfectly good phone.

    Yes. That, exactly.

    On second thoughts. Maybe this one:

    Nooooo. It's entirely on point.

    It's a still from the movie Sophie's Choice. Click the link and read the synopsis.

    When I saw your poll: "what's your least favorite iphone", I immediately thought what sort of choice is that? It's like a father being asked to choose his least favorite child.

    Small white car nailed it, exactly, with the movie reference.

    No. It's indicating this thread is a whiny thread. It's just asking for others' input on which iphone they least liked. Its also rude and disrespectful to other members who participated in this thread.

    That's not what I took from it. I thought it was entirely appropriate. Brilliant, in fact. Honestly.

    Admittedly it might have been a bit obscure to non movie-goers.

    Streep's performance in that movie was rated as one of the finest of all time. It's a heart-wrenching storyline that deals with a mother in a Nazi Germany concentration camp, driven into emotional turmoil by being asked to chose one of her two children to be saved (the other one is destined for a dire fate).

    Not whiny at all. Sorry to digress into movies, but I just thought the parallel small white car was drawing was entirely appropriate.

    Its an impossible choice.

    Ok. You took it like that, I did not.

    Fair enough. I just hate seeing decent folks being dinged unfairly. Admittedly, with the steady increase in provocative behavior I've seen in these forums over the last few years, I can entirely understand your reaction. I've reported a number of people myself.

    The 3G and the 5C I get- fair enough, but who voted for the 5S and the 6?

    I voted for the 6 and 6 Plus. Really not a fan of those phones.

    Considering how you took it was clearly not how it was intended, I have to wonder if you're projecting your own doubts about this thread into the meaning.

    Back on topic: iPhone 5c for me. I actually know friends who've gotten it, and the plastic is actually surprisingly durable. It definitely is stronger than the scratch-if-you-sneeze-on-it aluminum on the 5. But man, those colors are AWFUL.

    You see those awful color choices, and then you think "oh, I can just get a cover for that and it'll be fine."

    Oh, right...

    I've had the 3G, 4, 4S, 5, and 6+ and of those the 5 was my least favorite. I really don't know why, but it got to the point that I sold it and purchased a Note 3 and used it until the 6+ came out. I think I perhaps just got tired of the small screen size. I'm very, very pleased with my 6+ however.
