So it's basically the iPhone five in plastic.
no originality here. move along
Is a point to this phone? Most of us would use a case which will cover up the colourful plastic.
Makes sense to buy an iPhone 5 and a nice case.
An iPhone 5 shoved into a Lumia 620 body. This is "innovation" according to Apple, which obviously died with Steve - enough said.
In your video you say something along the lines of, "at £80 less the 5C will attract plenty of people" (paraphrased).Surely for most people, on a 24 month contract, the maths is more like a monthly difference of under £3.40 bethween the 5S and 5C. For the price of a pint per month, would you really opt for the lesser phone? I know I would drink an extra glass of water each month and have the better phone.
Its really very better with compare to 5s, I love colors.
I can see this being a great success,a sort of 'lifestyle' statement to people who see through the fact that you can get a just as good windows/android device for half the money.I will wait for a 6C or 6S,with a decent size screen,full 4G capability,more realistic pricing due to competition,a battery that lasts a full day,and maybe wireless charging.
I'm wondering about sounds and mic quality since there seems to be less holes?
My olnly question about iPhone 5C is: can you change the background image? Every single picture I see, there's the default one...
Too bad the iPhone 5c does not come in the color black.
At this price you might as well just buy a 5 if you can find one, which has a nicer build, or just pony up the relatively small extra and get the full 5S. There's not enough clear daylight between the two models, and the 5C's price means it's not really a budget competitor. Who can justify / afford the 5C but not the 5S?
And Apple's pride notwithstanding, the latest phone needed a 4.5"+ screen. This is not enough for the next whole year. I initially resisted the Tim Cook bashing, as I felt that Apple's success could hardly be down to just SJ. But TC does come across as a manager rather than a leader, and Apple are treading water at the moment (though iOS7 does look nice).
if you don't want touch ID , 5c is real deal ..
What a waist of time I think people will stick to getting the iphone 5 / 5s the price is not big enough between them and I bet it feels cheap and horrible in comparison they should of really dropped the price for it to be a success
I bet it flops it needed to be alot cheaper people will just buy the 5 / 5s
There is no iPhone 5, the 5C replaced it. It will be a huge hit. Some people don't care about specs, they just want a phone that works & looks cool and the cheaper price tag will sway some buyers, as will finally having an iPhone with a little color
They usually have classes at the apple store for there products
Although I'm not overly impressed with the specs of the 5C, the 5S is not an option for me as I've absolutely no desire to purchase a phone with a fingerprint scanner. Ever.
I don't understand why every review seems to simply overlook, or just not care that this is an iPhone 5 in a cheaper case, selling for the same, or maybe even more than the 5 would have, had they continued production. Shameless customer-raping pricing by Apple, yet again.
This is massively over-priced, and the plastic case isn't appealing, and it certainly does not make the phone look like a premium product. They could have manufactured the original case with colours if that's what they thought they were missing.
I cannot take any review seriously that gives this device a good score based on these facts alone. There is absolutely no value to this device at all. Over the standard contracts that I'm sure 90% of consumers would have with this phone, it's going to make little, if any, difference to their monthly payments over the 5s.
Not sure about hit, but it will sell, if only because the 5s will sell out. Way too expensive, can't see the point in it.
Awesome rant. Unfortunately, you've just been ranting about your lack of ability at using smartphones. But it's good to vent.
If you can't get to the apple store for a class, I'd ask a friend to show you the basics of the phone. Keep to the basics initially (phone calls, texts, taking pictures), until they are second nature, then start using all the apps and dig into the settings.
The internet is also your friend, so if you find a setting you don't know about, search for it. There'll be information on it somewhere.
Oh yeah a real bargain from Apple at that price.:/
Why are people still throwing money at Apple for way overpriced tech?
You do know that you can return it for a full refund within 14 days?
The plastic actually feels really, really nice. I went into a three store over the weekend and came away feeling much more positive about it, it doesn't feel like any plastic phone I have felt before, and feels vastly more impressive than the gs3 or gs4 so don't worry about that. I think they did need the 5C though, it creates a bit of fun in the iPhone lineup.
It is optional you realise, and even without that it is a pretty big update over the iPhone 5.
No, it's iphone 5 in Crocs. ;D
