    I'm very curious to know why the 5C display seems to be better than that on the 5S?

    You should read the review from Anand:

    all the droid fan people are saying, so what, no big deal, it's coming soon to android too, ain't that hard to do, no problem, etc. etc. ...

     

    it will be very interesting to see what actually happens, and when.

     

    same goes for the Touch ID fingerprint sensor. you KNOW that as of today every major OEM in the world is in a total panic to get one of their own ASAP - it's the 5s' "killer" feature. sales of high end Android phones are going to plummet until they catch up.

     

    it will be very interesting to see if they actually work as well.

    ...and whether Samsung's attempts to mimic the round sensor will throw them back into infringing Apple's design patents territory.

    C'mon, Apple now wants to patent circles? /s

    Maybe someone has already made a comment on it, but it seems like there are usually more speculation reports on stock levels, on the 5c it now shows 3-5 day shipping versus delivery on 9/20. It also seemed to show that the unlocked versions sold out first ,or maybe they just had less inventory. It seems like that would raises apples stock price as well and curb fears that the 5C wasn't selling.

    of course SS will almost duplicate the Apple design verbatim ASAP. they figure any patent lawsuit will take years, and by then it won't matter anyway - they'll finally have their own design ready.

     

    that's how they do business.

    I know that, and you know that, but it didn't work with the joke so I modified it more than a Samsung Inventory Shipping Officer modifies his figures...

    Cant wait till my 5s comes in! That fingerprint scanner is so cool! I just pledged to a project on kickstarter for a gold cable to match my phone. I'm so stoked! Check it out at http://juici.es/ks
