"C" sick? 15 second video shows lock screen, home screen and browser of Apple iPhone 5C

On the day before the introduction of the Apple iPhone 5C and its premium brother, the Apple iPhone 5S, a quick video shows off the former's lock screen, browser and home screen; not that that you can tell much from a 15 second video, but we can see that the phone is just as responsive as, say, the Apple iPhone 5...

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.

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,,,)

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who loves technologies also won't buy it because I'm pretty sure that cheap Apple phone will be even more boring and outdated than usual iPhone.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. ;)

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.

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??

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.

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.

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.

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.

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?

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.

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!
