    All iPhone 5C discussions will be done here.

    [​IMG]

    The iPhone 5C comes in 5 colors (as shown in the image) and has been designed to be more affordable as compared to the 5S.

    It runs on iOS 7, ships with the Apple A6 chip, and features an 8-megapixel iSight camera.

    Based on the high demand of the iPhone 5s (with shipping estimates pushed back to October) versus the ready availability of the 5c on online stores, looks like Apple is looking at its first major iPhone flop on the 5c.

    Expect the 5c's prices to drop in a few months, or Apple might just have to start focusing on increasing the supply of the 5s instead to meet the demand.

    That's true, even the nearest Radioshack and Best Buy here has a lot of stocks for the 5c. As for the 5s, they're all gone!

    I was expecting more demand for the 5c and more stock for the 5s. IMHO, the price difference between the two isn't that great considering the technological difference

    OT: I just wish Apple would release their Haswell MBP soon
    .... and Apple would go back to trademark all-white background website.

    Apple is set to announce the new MAC PRO later this year so there's another unveiling before the year ends.

    if they can make the 5c waterproof and shock proof then its a different story.
    actually I was told by some rumor that iPod Touch will be in color plastic as 5c is, but eventually Apple decided to use it for iPhone which can make more money,

    will just watch for the next release and skip this one, they both looks like clones to me,

    may be a plastic iPad mini soon

    we'll check again after apple release their new iphones to more locations. the countries they released 'em first have been lining up for the latest iphone each year. while some (like locally) even the last gen iphone sells well. much more now that the iphone 5c is actually the last gen..priced as a last gen iphone but is actually "new". another market that can benefit is those with lower end androids. so yeah, we are yet to see what the 5c can do.

    The 5C is clearly aimed at new iPhone owners. These are not the people who line up for devices as soon as they are available. So the late pickup of 5C sales is expected.

    5S buyers, on the other hand, are the fanboys who want to get an upgrade or want to have the best model immediately/ ahead of everyone else, so stocks are immediately bought up (not to mention this is where reselling profits are more probable).

    I find the 5c more aimed at younger generation with its wide color selections.

    Better FaceTime camera (front camera for low light).
    Bigger battery (spec wise) but battery life may be the same or better.
    Speaker is louder (based reviews)

    All specs remain the same.

    ^^ Additionally the 5c is 18% heavier (132g vs 112g) and 18% thicker (9mm vs 7.6mm) than the iPhone 5.

    visited Starhub earlier...

    All colors of 32GB versions of the 5C are sold out... They only have the 16GB available.

    Looks like people are opting for the 5C with bigger memory...

    For the 5S, only 16 and 64GB of the Space Gray are available, all versions of the white and gold are also sold out.
