its plain and simple, just lower the price, if they were $599 or $499 for the base model then they would be flying off the shelves, i love these phones, they look great and run very well, but it costs way to much!
So glad,Apple are so greedy and at last folk got sensible and did not buy.
Our CEX store which is a recycling second hand shop had 4 5c few days after launch and they are still their,,3 x 16GB and one 32GB.The so called pink one looks like luminous orange unless its the way it relects light in the window the others are blue.
The plastic isn't the issue and has never been. At first Apple "accidentally" teases the masses with an affordable iPhone and then it revealed an exuberant asking price at launch. That is the real deal killer. Plastic wasn't an issue for the 3G and 3GS either, isn't it?
Apple you should be ashamed of yourselves but then again it doesn't stop millions of fools who want to buy "a social status" in stead of a real smartphone. Don't get me wrong, the have loads of quality as wel.
iPhone 5C should've been a water testing product. If it were to be sub-retina 4.5" (and with a beefier battery), it wouldn't suck so much. And they wouldn't have to drop the price so quickly.
I don't think 5c is a bad phone. It's only the price what makes it wothless. If cost around 300-350 it would sell like a hot cakes like ipad mini did. Also premium for 32 a 64 variantes should be less than 100 in this case.
Iphone 5C stands for "C" China as in china idea. Not worthy to buy. I hope all iphone products will be made in USA where it was originated.
Okay ,Apple make the iphone 5c so that the 5s could get the whole attention,thats a lot of confused speech if you ask me,so why did they make the 5c in the first place because the 5c is getting the attention anyway.

Have you even held an iPhone 5c in your hands?
It doesnt feel plastic at all... moreI've used several iPhones.
Going from a proper Android it's fun for 5 minutes, then you get bored with it.
Im an Apple fan but I dont like the idea of having a plastic iPhone from the start. Cease the production of 5c all over the world and focus on 5s. Let Apple rules on premium devices and just let Samsung rules on plastic toys.

It doesnt feel plastic at all and 5c has sold well with most recent ratios been 3:! for 5s:5c. And seeing how many phones they sold this 2 months,the amount is well over 10mil 5c. I remember they had 300k per day production last month and that equals 4.5mil per month plus the initial volume that was shipped. You do realise 10mil phones is more then what nokia sold in an entire quater.
Use iOS once and you will know what you missed by using android. I use both and i know which one has a better overall feel and experience. Now you will say u have used iphones but ppl who have used iphones hardly ever bash it. Its just those dumbass ppl who cant afford an iphone cry about how "BAD" it is.
Rahul9RS, 18 Nov 2013iphone 5c is nt a good phone made up by apple it just has 1500mah of battery n 1.2 dual co... moreYou seriously have no idea how processors work do you?
Nor do you have any idea about power management.
How about you keep your half baked knowledge with yourself and use phones you can afford?
I used iPhone 5c at the apple store and its pretty solid. If i could get 5s specs with 5c body i would buy it. Ppl who cry about it being "plastic" are the ppl who cant afford it and settle for samsung crap,
So its official now.. Apple can't sell plastic lol. Shame. All those plastic bashers should realise now that selling plastic in millions is not a joke. Premium can sell by looks n marketing alone but you need much more to sell a plastic bodied phone. This alone tells how much superior Android platoon is too iphones. lol.
Apple is a company for innovation but with Iphone 5c they went for renovation...
The result was so pathetic, I think Tim cook as learnt his lesson.
Iphone 5 has more VFM wen compared to plastic iPhone..BAD APPLE
Puneet Pandey, 18 Nov 2013Basically Apple wants to copy of Nokia's Smartphone phone... But Apple don't know about Nokia... moreYeah.. Nokia invented plastic and Nokia invented colours... Tell me more!
Plz dont comment like a troll. Even iPhone 5S is dualcore with 1gb ram, since iOS runs very smooth in that. Its the same internals like iPhone 5 with a plastic shell and 100$ cheaper. Thats basically Apple do every year (reduce 100$ for last years tech). This time instead of iPhone 5, they had 5c. Its an ok product, but not good/great!
