"C" sick? 15 second video shows lock screen, home screen and browser of Apple iPhone 5C
A great companion piece to this video is our Apple iPhone 5C roundup which brings you all of the latest information about the budget-priced iPhone variation. And we should point out that the video below is different than the 48 second video leaked earlier that revealed the browsing capabilities of the iPhone 5C. That video also showed that the unit will apparently be just as quick and responsive as the current model.
With the unveiling of the new iPhone models a day away, keep it here for coverage of Apple's highly anticipated announcements.
Thanks, Anonymous Tipster!

I guess iphone will be moving away from "one handed" use.
24. PhoneArenaUser (Posts: 4487; Member since: 05 Aug 2011)
I also think so, but I\'m pretty sure that it will happen not tomorow.
44. HansGoneInsane (Posts: 201; Member since: 09 Aug 2013)
That is going to happen next year with the iPhone 6. I hope they minimize the bezel so that the phone-dimensions don't grow too much. In Ive I trust.

Thanks. Can\' wait for tomorrow\'s event. PA\'s front page will have 50 articles about Apple :) Going to be a haters paradise. Can\'t wait for all the hate posts.
edit: there seems to be an issue with your forums adding \\ to apostrophes.

lol .... you wrote that like you actually believed it?! OMG worst 15 seconds of my life, though, not as bad as when I was flipping though TV channels last week and caught a quick 5 second blurp on Kim KardashaSwallo but, I'm "C" sick just like the writer points out.

Oh my gawd, Same design with double LED and a fingerprint scanner that will probably fail like 60% of the time like Apple Maps at launch? Oh dear almighty what are we gonna do? *Pick up any other 2012 SMARTphone*
43. Commentator (Posts: 1869; Member since: 16 Aug 2011)
frydaexiii is still waiting for his +1 from you, Pap. Don't make him promises you can't keep!

60. PhoneArenaUser (Posts: 4487; Member since: 05 Aug 2011)
+1 from me to frydaexiii and PAPINYC and to you Commentator for a nice notice. :D
69. SilverSurfer85 (Posts: 28; Member since: 12 Apr 2013)
That Fingerprint scanner is going to fail.. Most people have an otterbox on there phone, so pretty much it will be useless to them.

Seems that you don't care about the tech, you want just to troll and that's what you are waiting for. There is no need to provoke and initiate a flame war.
10. power_x (Posts: 99; Member since: 28 Aug 2013)
so you are telling me that android users dont troll
check your eyes
14. PhoneArenaUser (Posts: 4487; Member since: 05 Aug 2011)
You should check yours because I didn't said that.
18. PhoneArenaUser (Posts: 4487; Member since: 05 Aug 2011)
It doesn't matter which smartphone OS you will took, you will always found more or less trolls between users. But in my opinion mostly trolls those who are fanboys, not simple users or tech enthusiasts.
11. Ninetysix (Posts: 928; Member since: 08 Oct 2012)
I honestly can\'t wait to be entertained by your hate posts tomorrow. Try not to turn into the hulk.
17. PhoneArenaUser (Posts: 4487; Member since: 05 Aug 2011)
Since when subjective opinion is marked as a "hate posts" ? Or everything what is agains't your opinion, automatically turns into "hate posts" ?
"Try not to turn into the hulk."
I'm calm, such comments doesn't provocate a flame in me. ;)
33. darkkjedii (Posts: 7753; Member since: 05 Feb 2011)
Exactly ninetysix. This is gonna be good tomorrow, Eclipse will lead the way too. Lotsa hate tomorrow.
12. good2great (Posts: 952; Member since: 22 Feb 2012)
its gonna be the biggest turnout on phonearena tomorrow.. android users from every camp will be in here talking trash... hahaha
I CAN\'T WAIT to read their comments.
20. EclipseGSX (Posts: 1330; Member since: 18 Oct 2011)
You have some serious issues as well if you need those comments to be entertained.
22. good2great (Posts: 952; Member since: 22 Feb 2012)
everyone knows the comment section is the most entertaining part of PA...
from the fanboys iphone vs android vs WP8 wars.
as well as the expert techies in here that give great info about things that the PA writers may not know about.
its addicting coming here sometimes. it helps my workday go by faster.
57. InspectorGadget80 (Posts: 5170; Member since: 26 Mar 2011)
No one from PA PHONEDOG or engadget BGR. never called them experts techies.
29. darkkjedii (Posts: 7753; Member since: 05 Feb 2011)
G2G you took the words rite outta my mouth. Those no life having knuckle heads will flock to this like ants to sugar, a moth to a flame. They'll stop running their speed tests, and quadrant standards to tune in. Their comments will be hilarious, and useless too. I can't wait go tomorrow bro, this'll be good.
66. EclipseGSX (Posts: 1330; Member since: 18 Oct 2011)
And you no life Appleheads will enjoy your tiny joke of a device while Tim Cooks ROFL his ass off all the way to the bank.
80. good2great (Posts: 952; Member since: 22 Feb 2012)
darkk what up buddy... damn tomorrow is finally on its way!!!
tbh i'm REALLY waiting for the release of Mavericks... i'm running a mac mini with dual monitors and the support for dual monitors on mavericks has me very impatient.
36. PAPINYC (Posts: 1834; Member since: 30 Jul 2011)
Actually, tomorrow I plan to stay clear of ArenaiPhone as, they will probably post 200 stories on the iPhone 5C[heap] and the iPhone 5S[ame] detailing everything from how different glass is from plastic; the special grade of plastic used that was manufactured from RecYcled grocery store bags and treated with a special BiOdegradable compound so that the case melts in exactly 367 days just after the 1-year Manufacturer's Warranty; they will also compare both phones to all other "Same" phones released by Apple since 2007, as well as compare both phones to all phones released sinced 2010; draw comparisons on how the company has evolved and devolved under Timmy Cook as compared to their Master; and, then, they will have countless stories on the Stock Market's reaction to Apple's announcement. Really, my head is sipping just thinking about it: don't wanna' be here.
84. _god_ (banned) (Posts: 47; Member since: 13 Aug 2013)
But you have no problems with phonearena filling up from top to bottom with Sams**t articles
13. Long1 (Posts: 399; Member since: 18 May 2013)
I still don't get it: Why Apple should make iphone 5C from plastic, when the tin-can is not more expencive to produce?
Plastic GS4 and even the old GS3 have higher production price than aluminum iphone 5. Right?
Besides, how Tim Cook think to sell puny display (ugly)phones on the asian market , where ppl like big screens only.
(not to mention FM radio, dual SIM , TV,,,)
21. PhoneArenaUser (Posts: 4487; Member since: 05 Aug 2011)
I'm pretty sure that any cheap Apple phone or tablet won't be popular! Because people who loves to show off won't buy cheap device even if it has Apple logo on it! Why? Because according to this kind of Apple lovers - CHEAP IS NOT COOL!
Other people who loves technologies also won't buy it because I'm pretty sure that cheap Apple phone will be even more boring and outdated than usual iPhone. That's why I think that any cheap iPhone or iPad will be Apple fail. ;)
42. joey_sfb (Posts: 1477; Member since: 29 Mar 2012)
Why are you guys so afraid of hate posts, There plenty of hate posts in Android and WP PA's postings.
Haters gonna hate, so be it.

iOS 7 UI looks very childish... i prefer the old one...
9. buccob (Posts: 725; Member since: 19 Jun 2012)
aesthetically... but feature wise, this one is much more Androider...
7. selena1000 (Posts: 81; Member since: 14 Mar 2013)
i like apple and really looking forward to there event but this is really the worst kept secret in the world
67. KillgoreTrout (Posts: 48; Member since: 04 Sep 2013)
Imagine if they unveil a watch? Then it would turn into the best kept secret in the world.
16. LiquidGalaxy (Posts: 107; Member since: 03 Jul 2013)
There are no suprises anymore - i miss the old days...
23. GrapeEyes (Posts: 232; Member since: 01 Sep 2013)
I am Nokia all the way, but that iphone looked smooth and refreshing.
38. WHoyton1 (Posts: 1473; Member since: 21 Feb 2013)
we know your nokia all the way....thats why no one listens to you....
26. jan25 (Posts: 327; Member since: 26 Feb 2012)
Heyyyy, it\'s an iPhone running the already seen IOS7 *yawns*
39. WHoyton1 (Posts: 1473; Member since: 21 Feb 2013)
Hey Dark, I take it as your looking forward to tommorows event? You all prepped? Haha i am going to be eager to see what apple can bring to a growing smartphone leader board do you think they can create as much hype as previous years??
49. darkkjedii (Posts: 7753; Member since: 05 Feb 2011)
Nope no way, maybe next year with the anticipation of a bigger, redesigned device. I'm simply expecting a very sound, and capable well built device...nothing more.
51. WHoyton1 (Posts: 1473; Member since: 21 Feb 2013)
Well said and if anyone can bring a solid constant device its Apple
32. Immolate (Posts: 226; Member since: 17 Jun 2011)
No Apple fan here, but I miss when Apple would introduce a new iPhone and would break new ground in smart phones. I hope they do something this year.
46. HansGoneInsane (Posts: 201; Member since: 09 Aug 2013)
I think next year will be a huge leap forward in smartphone business. Apple will come up with a complete new design, a larger screen, a 64bit CPU and iOS8. We can see already what Jonathan Ive could do within 1 year with iOS. Imagine what he can do within two years.
45. Whateverman (Posts: 3061; Member since: 17 May 2009)
I will try to avoid PA tomorrow, but I'm sure I won't be able to. I AM genuinely excited to see whatever new phone or tech any company has to offer, including Apple and the iPhone. The problem... The mindless, oh sorry, the loyal iPhone fans who only see perfection no matter how short the new device may fall. And if any of us express any sort of disappointment in the new iPhone, it's instantly a war.
The iPhone users like darkkjedi (Wassup dude!) I don't mind at all. But there are too many of you "loyal iPhone fans" that can't take constructive critisim of your glass god! I can admitt there are some Android devices that still suffer from a half second lag, or don't have the best cameras, or don't get updated in a timely matter. But you "loyal fans" STILL can't admit the closed system sucks, syncing music sucks, and a bigger screen would be nice. And if anyone else says it, you get all mad about it! ... Matter of fact, screw that! I'm gonna be here saying what I like and dislike about the phone, it is just a phone people, and waiting for the fanboys to retaliate. It will be fun! So for all of you anticipating the hate and talking about getting popcorn to see all the haters, do what you gotta do. Because if the leaked photos and videos are accurate, there will be a lot of laughing coming from myself and others who like seeing forward progression in their mobile products. And I wish they would bring back the thumbs down, just so I can see how bad I hurt some feelings tomorrow.
47. HansGoneInsane (Posts: 201; Member since: 09 Aug 2013)
All software coming from Apple is great because it is of very high quality. The closed system does not suck at all because it offers you security and stability combined with a lot of apps and a smooth and nicely animated user experience. I don't care so much about a SD-Card slot because I save my stuff in the cloud anyway. The only thing that bothers me, is the missing bigger screen. I'd like to have a 4,7 or 5 inch screen. That is coming next year I guess. I don't get your point concerning posting comments tomorrow to pick-up a fight with Apple fan boys. Don't you have better things to do?
54. Whateverman (Posts: 3061; Member since: 17 May 2009)
Okay, maybe "sucks" was a bit strong as far as the closed system. It has it's benefits obviously, but it has serious drawback too. Like Apple removing features for different apps in fear of it competing with its own services, or not approving the app altogether for the same reason.
The SD card, not too big of a deal but I don't want to rely on the cloud for everything. And somepeople eventually hit their limit with internal storage. And it even effects performance before you hit that limit. My iPad is at 30GBs right now, and the speed is horrible!
As for the fanboys, my point is... I'm a techie! I come to PA to keep up on the latest and greatest, and when a product doesn't live up to the hype, I comment. We all come here for the enjoyment of conversations with like minded people. But not everyone here is a techie. There are a TON of fanboys who come here with the sole purpose of flaming other OSs and they have literally NOTHING intelligent to say. I can disagree with guys like -box-, Papss, EN, even Darkkjedii (and that's my dude!). But these guys always have something intelligent to say, even while critising my favorite device or OS. Because these guys are techies too. So I'm not looking to fight with the fanboys, I'm just want to chat with the smart guys and girls who have something of substance to say. You seem to be a techie as well, so I look forward to seeing your thoughts tomorrow too.
48. darkkjedii (Posts: 7753; Member since: 05 Feb 2011)
WM that's a great post dude, nothing but respect for it. +1
55. Whateverman (Posts: 3061; Member since: 17 May 2009)
DJ, I'm still waiting for your picture to be changed to a wedding picture. When is the big day?
56. darkkjedii (Posts: 7753; Member since: 05 Feb 2011)
12 more days WM. 9-21-13, I'll recieve tons of racial/derogatory comments, but oh well. Trolls like PAPINYC, EclipseGSX, and Troll are eagerly waiting.
65. Whateverman (Posts: 3061; Member since: 17 May 2009)
What?!? Man, anybody who can\'t be happy for you and your lady... F*ck em!
My wife and I just celebrated our 4 year and we had people who weren\'t happy for us too. But nothing could spoil the memory of that day for us. It will be the same for you. Just keep shaking the haters off bro. But I\'m happy for you guys, congrats my brotha!
72. darkkjedii (Posts: 7753; Member since: 05 Feb 2011)
Dude that's tite, thanks for the kind words. Didn't know you were married, congrats on 4 years bro...that's wassup. I can't wait, I expect to be laughing and crying. My silly a$$ fiancé is the type to make a funny face, or something to make me laugh. Her sense of humor is off the hook. +10 bro
