if they would ever release this kind of phone, they should call it iPhone5[M]
M stands for Mass Appeal
M less mass since this is special plastic
Anonymous, 26 Jul 2013It seems you, too, forgot about the cracking on the 3G/3GS on the edges of the dock connector.He didn't forget anything.
He JUST told you he OWNED a 3Gs for 5 years.
If anyone knows about the build quality it's him.

Anonymous, 26 Jul 2013Yes, the back on the 3gs is plastic. Google "3g 3gs cracks dock connector"What does the 3Gs cracking have to do with anything? Tht phone is long gone. Adios.
It's like complaining about the White MacBook expanding batteries.
It may be that there will be no plastic iphone. Maybe they're making their iPods Multi color and plastic
The iPods now are horrible. Painted metal and scratches and scuffs. Crap.
Part for Part the iPhone 5 and the Galaxy S4 cost about as much to build. Galaxy S4 is around $30 more.
If you buy them unlocked they're not really that far apart in price. So I don't know what you mean by the price being mostly "status" and brand.
Seriously? How common does one become after buying an iPhone. Everyone has one.
I live here in Thailand, 3rd world country, and almost all my 5th grade students have iPhones.
Which to buy?
4s, 5s, Lumia S? Galaxy S?
I confu? Which one?
no.BoUndaries, 24 Jul 2013Yes, it is flexible but it gets a shock very well as I have seen!It doesn't matter if its strong and can take a "shock".
If FEELS CHEAP!
How many times do I have to explain that?
It's about FEELING cheap. That's what people complain about. NOT the plastic. THE FEEL OF IT.
Lumias came out. ALL Plastic. NOBODY has complained about them feeling cheap.
Anonymous, 24 Jul 2013You can't compare Samsung Galaxy S4 to iPhone "mini". Of course Samsung Galaxy S4. T... moreOf course you can.
You can compare the Galaxy S4 to this phone. And this is not "iPhone Mini". It's the same size as the iPhone 5.
For example. You can say
With the Galaxy S4 I can check my email, take pictures, take videos, Facebook, browse the Internet, watch videos and listen to my music.
With the Plastic Iphone I can check my email, take pictures, take videos, Facebook, browse the Internet, watch videos and listen to my music.
See? I just compared it.
geordie81, 24 Jul 2013you are quoting half a comment made in january this year, when the iphone was less then 3 mont... moreThe iPad Mini example doesn't count.
Jobs said no iPad mini. Jobs died. THEN it came out.
He said there will be no "cheap" iPhone.
And Apple will never release a "Cheap" phone. Apple doesn't make "cheap" products.
Maybe it'll cost a bit less, but it won't be "cheap".
AgentZachs, 24 Jul 2013lol. troll. Have you ever tried breaking the "teeny paper thin plastic"? It's design... moreThanks for repeating what I said.
Yes. It's super thin and bends.
It FEELS cheap. That's what we are talking about. Doesn't matter if you can't break it or not. It FEELS cheap.
So my point is, the 3Gs and the Lumia don't feel cheap but the Galaxy phones feel cheap. They're both plastic.
iPhoSamsu, 24 Jul 2013Steve jobs soon reborn and kill them all at Apple Companyhaha! or rather be crying.....
SpeedyPete, 24 Jul 2013Yes, Their first phone was plastic, looks like they are going back to their roots. Stupid comment.actually their first phone was metal ( the 2g) the 3g was plastic backed yes. get your facts right.
If you're looking for the alleged low-cost iPhone, well stop, it already exists. It's called the iPhone 3GS.
Gee, 24 Jul 2013Crapple are so yesterday...........s0 2oo8
