iPhone 5c

I haven't really looked at an iPhone 5c. Now that I did, I like it a lot. It plays on the Nokia design theme with two beautiful colors: blue and white. The others aren't vibrant enough. The material isn't as nice as Nokia's but it's way better than most of the cases you wrap your iPhone 5S in. It's thinner and lighter than an iPhone 5(S) with a case, and it holds much better than an iPhone 5S without a case.

While you might think that it says 'I cannot afford an iPhone 5S', I read it more like a smart buy. However, at current Amazon prices, that Nokia 1520 in the photo is in very close range of a 32 GB iPhone 5S.

Ich finde das 5C klasse, ist mir das angenehmste iPhone seit dem 3GS.
Mehr als 500,- muss es nicht kosten, da stimmt dann auch wieder die Relation zum 5S.
Erst war grün mein Favorit, doch blau machte das Rennen.
Man bemerkt die geringen Verkaufszahlen: meist bin ich der einzige mit einem 5C; es ist also ein sehr exklusives Modell ;-)

Stimmt. Mir ging das ganz ähnlich. In freier Wildbahn habe ich das noch nie gesehen, nur einmal kurz beim Besuch eines Kollegen in der Hand gehabt. Und am Ende macht man mit allen iPhones das gleiche. Ob für 500 Euro oder für 900 Euro.

Now I agree with you. I like the 5C - my favourite colour is the green.

However my daughter (17 years old) denounced the 5C and is the proud owner of a 5S (Gold). Her view - she needed to future proof her purchase as much as possible and besides it is just much better.

I couldn't argue with her as really she is right. Damn these pesky kids......

haben jetzt ein weißes 5C im Haushalt, der Nutzerin gefällt es gut. Mir war es (sowie das 5S) zu wenig aufregend nach 3G, 4 und 4S. Dank @vowe jetzt Lumia 1020 (mit Grip) und bis zu einem iPhone 6(s) vollkommen begeistert.
Das Einzige, was dem Windows Phone fehlt, ist ein vernüftiger Browser. Kaum eine Website lädt, so wie sie gedacht war...

Do you think that this concept of modular smartphones is gonna fly?

It would push the discussion of price per device by several hundred dollars ...
