iPhone 5s not the C
I can't say that I like the 5C. It doesn't seem like the Apple when the iPhone 4 was announced. Even as they have covered recently that the 5C "isn't" a low end device, it still is marketed as if it was. The product isn't polished, and overall, iOS 7 isn't either. The phone is solid on the insides but Apple wouldn't have made this even a good year ago. The direction they are headed could confuse future buyers. The iPhone 6 or the 6C would be harder to market and the "C" could be lost in time. Removing the iPhone 5 from there lineup could be a good move, but why keep the iPhone 4S? Besides the lower manufacturing cost, they could still make the iPhone 5 take its place and immediately remove it from the lineup all together. $50 with a 2-year contract still would make it a nice market point, but may drive sales from the 5C. I would take the iPhone 5 over the iPhone 5C almost any day. The reason behind this is my drive to have a high-quality crafted phone.
I would gladly take an Android phone on the higher end (HTC One, S4, etc.) over the 4 and 4S iPhone editions. (Today I have an iPhone 4) This being because Android has many innovations and customization moves Apple hasn't chosen to take. Windows Phone is a nice option, too, but I haven't felt anything that would be beneficial for me to upgrade to the Windows service beside on a PC. With all this said, I would greatly prefer a Nexus 10 over an iPad. (maybe a Mini if it gets an A7 and a retina)
With all this said, leave your comments for what you think down below.
