All iPhone fans who hated Samsung gs3 and gs4, what's up with last year's comments about Samsung's designs being "too plasticky".

Look who's using plastic now?! What's up with that?!

You can also say many LOVE the iPhone.

You're right in saying ios 7 met its proper exterior. I think this should have been the iPhone. Period. Just 1 iPhone polycarbonate.

You're wrong in saying this is an "entry level" phone.

It's a $550 phone. It's the iPhone 5 with a plastic body. iPhone 5 was their flagship last year and the 5s only just marginally improves on it, so the 5c is still very much a premium phone just wrapped in a plastic body.

Was never an issue with you guys when Samsung did it. Not sure why it's an issue when Apple does it.

At least apple builds it from 1 solid piece of plastic lines with steel. Gives the user a solid premium feel in the hand, unlike Samsung plastics which can feel very cheap.

I can either use it like yourself and be abusive to someone who voices an opinion which doesn't support you in your iphone worship, which can be found all over this site or I can use it in the manor in which it is intended for. And before you start attacking me for being a samsung fan you couldn't be further wrong.

Apple products are very restrictive and overly priced for what they are. After switching years ago from Apple to Samsung, I must say I will NEVER Apple again. Android is the way to go and having tried the Blackberry Z10 lately, I'm loving it as well.

People need to boycott Apple so that they know they can't keep fooling customers. They only care about their pocket, not about customers as they lack innovation.

I am a tech guru and I'm speaking from hands-on experience on phones and I'll proudly endorse any phone apart from the iPhones. They're not worth half of their prices.

For a company that trumps so much on innovation I am very sorry to say that this device has NONE so far.
And yes, overcharging for a plastic piece of crap isn't a novelty either!

Maybe it is just me but that cover on the 5c reminds me of a string vest my grandfather or even great grandfather would have warn. All it needs now is a knotted hanky on the top and it is all set for the beach to sit in a deck chair.

many of you say that it has 64 bit processor,ios dont need new hardwares to run smooth, most of the features of android are useless......etc. but it is clearly seen that apple is making phone at low cost and selling them at very high cost. even this so called cheaper 5c is expensive. only thing that will made me and many others buy iphone now is if they remove that itunes prison dependency and give freedom to use it which has almost no chance of happening.
