Apple thought the public are gullible enough to fall for the 5c scheme.
If this phone from others company then it will be a normal smartphone, but from apple it just a dump ! Just wan to create a cheaper iPhone but the price is much higher than competitors.
Iphone 5c is a huge success. It was never Apple's intention to sell iphone 5c, It's sole purpose was to make iphone 5s looks attractive.
Good job Foxconn! Apple should shut-down their assembly line product for the plastic iPhone5C. The 'high-end' plastic product just make a shame to Apple...
Iphone 5 [C]heap at an exuberant price tag.. somethings should just be kept as toffees to attract more kids.
goodbye 5c i think no one will miss you lol! its a good concept but the price is a bit high than expected. you can get ipon5 at almost the same price but well built than 5c. come on apple i think you need to do more innovations rather than upgrading or downgrading what steve jobs did for all of you.
AnonD-29831, 18 Nov 2013The plastic isn't the issue and has never been. At first Apple "accidentally" teases... moreI totally Agree with you. It would have done better if Iphone 5C was a budgeted edition of Iphone 5S rather than Iphone 5. If it was me I will definitely choose a year old Iphone 5 over Iphone 5c.
iPhone 5C 16GB priced at £469
Nexus 5 16GB priced at £300
You don't need a genius to decide even a child can tell the different of the pricing
ok, lets face the reality. who is going to buy a plastic 5C with tiny little screen and such high price? the 16GB 5C starts at a cool 630 USD in my country, which is exactly the same as a 32GB Note 3 or HTC One.
i agree it's not about the plastic, it's the way they promote it, before it was launched they said it is "a cheaper iphone" but it turned out to be expensive still...
the problem of this phone is the price. well, they choose to stop the production rather than to lower the price of this phone,

Have you even held an iPhone 5c in your hands?
It doesnt feel plastic at all... moreIf I use iOS, I'll know exactly what I've missed about it. Which is exactly...nothing.
Also, the iPhone 5C doesn't FEEL plastic? Wow. I get that the 5C is heavier and more solid, but to hear you say that it doesn't feel plastic when even Jony Ive said that it was unapologetically plastic...
Let me guess, you believed that 3.5" was the perfect screen size, but only if Apple told you it was? 4" is now the perfect size, according to Almighty Apple, so what do you believe now?
I am a big fan of apple but it is sad to say that apple was an innovative company now they are just buying innovative companies. So since they are not innovative company any more they should start selling what the customer need like bigger screens instead of sticking to the tiny one
Even here in China despite seeing the 5c in the all the shop windows, I've only actually seen *one* person in public with one.
