    I’ve heard the the S has been selling 3:1 to the C in the US on a couple of tech sites … which is good as the 5C is a waste.

    Also, it appears iOS 7 has a pretty big bug in related to connecting to secured wifi networks (using certificates)… it can’t. Only way around it is using a profile, but you can’t manually join one of these networks. I’ve seen this on the osuwireless network obviously at OSU but I’m sure other schools have a similar wifi configuration.

    so if you’re using iOS 7 you cannot connect to osuwireless?

    Why? I won’t be able to sell the metal case from an S to the scrapyard for $100, that’s for sure. People put covers over ’em anyway.

    Everything thing I’ve seen is that the 5C is just a 5 wrapped in plastic. Same internals, same 12 month old phone, all for a premium price starting $550 off contract. The 5S actually is *new* phone, much improved internals which would make it more future proof and worth the $100 premium over the 5C.

    What about outside the US?

    I don’t really need my stuff to be on the bleeding edge, so I’m cool with doing what China does in this case. My last phone was a flip phone. I don’t even know if I’m all that impressed with the smartphone concept anyway, though I’ve only had mine a few days. I needed something for local interactive weather radar when I’m working down at the farm where there’s no traditional internet access.

    i had that on my flip phone. it might have saved my life one day actually during a tornado incident in another state. but that’s another story. REALLY useful ‘app’ to have.

    kind of a shame its getting harder to find a GOOD ‘feature phone’.

    Would this be a good time to attempt to derail the thread by telling everyone I am very happy with my Samsung Note II? I have read that the Note II will get the next two OS upgrades, so I will probably be able to keep using this phone for another 3 years with any luck.

    According this analyst the trend is similar or higher than the US with Japan going 5:1 with 5S vs 5C.

    … but this is an analyst, so who knows if its accurate ;)
