What's with Jony's gold fettish lately? That's a rhetorical question. As with 'tallest skill' looking forward to see his take on a Leica, being the photo enthusiast that I am...just hope it isn't gold too!
This might be my next phone, I just hope Apple haven't compromised on spec to bring the price down further. The repositioning of the accelerometer chip worries me a bit. Maybe in fact they've just moved it or integrated it onto the SoC, I just hope its still there and they haven't removed that function amongst other features, to keep the price down.
I think the packaging photo is legit. On the leaked shots of various coloured iPhone 5C's in their packaging, the yellow bodied version had a solid yellow background on the home screen (a sticker I know but representative of what the activated home screen would look like) the blue bodied one a solid blue background etc...this is the black/slate version of the 5S so the background's black.
