I already explained the complex thing. Few could misunderstand it.
Mutitasking? Apple has the best implementation of multitasking on a mobile device.
There is NO google device that will ever be on my iOS devices, ever.
Notifications- I get them all the time and am very pleased with the way iOS does it.
So don't reply to me then. You are just the kind of person I described in my posts. Read my sig if you need more help
Actually I'm far from that. The only thing I did was respond to your request. But hey you use whatever you want, there just isn't a need to insult people because their choices differ from yours.
When the 6 is released and prices take the next adjustment, the 5c will be able to put sizable pressure on the mid range presuming they keep it (I think they will).
The 64bit thing is because they pretty much didn't have a choice. The choice in armv8 architecture is limited at this moment in time. If they wanted 64bit in the 5c it would have probably meant putting the same processor in the 5c as in the 5s (maybe with a small down clock or so). Completely defeating the purpose. It's a practical choice, if they had the possibility to put a 64bit chip in it I'm sure they would have done it (of course there is also a development cost consideration here).

You do realize the 4S is 2+ yo. Of course you'd see more of them.
Still, Amen to this.

If you opted to study computing in the last 10 years, pretty much anywhere in the world, you would of ended up on Microsoft centric training course....this has produced hoards of anti Mack computer geeks that have ended up heading IT departments, IT publications and IT investment departments..... If this hypothesis is correct Apple will never able to get it right, it has a real PR problem. For many computer geeks Android, in the face of Microsoft miss hits, has become the new Windows. The 5c is seen as a kink in Apples armour, and as such a target for negativity.
Some thoughts in MHO.

I use both and see no reason why 'droid dorks' would be jealous of the iPhone. I rather think it's the superiority complex of some fanboys from both sides that tick each other off. In my eyes both are great products in their own right, each with their own advantages and disadvantages.
Everyone wants to make Apple look like a failure as a company. I suppose if you don't like a company you just want to believe that everything they do is a failure even if it isn't. There were so many people that swore the iPad was a failure when it was first introduced because it didn't have the hardware that many tech people thought it should have. No Adobe Flash and no USB ports automatically supposedly made the iPad an instant failure. I think any company is entitled to a failure or two. What I don't understand is why it is being constantly mentioned. Some of these people make lower than expected iPhone 5c sales seem like it was as bad as sales for Microsoft's Surface RT or the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet. I'm sure not all of Samsung's various model smartphones sell in the same quantity as other models in their line-up but I don't hear the constant chatter about it. If Apple made a mistake, that's just par for the course. Nothing ventured, nothing gained. To me, the iPhone 5c seems like a mediocre second-tier smartphone. I think Apple could have and should have done a lot better putting the 5c together in terms of hardware but I don't run the company and I'm not privy to Apple's accounting books. I'm just certain that any product that sells in the millions of units shouldn't be considered a failure by third parties. If Apple wants to call it a failure then they'd be best qualified to judge it as so.

OH NO THE 5c IS TOO EXPENSIVE!!!
Of course in 6mnths when the iPhone 6 is released & the 5c takes up the 4s spot it will drop in price. Over the past 12mnths Apple has earned a premium price on a mid-tier handset before reducing the price to sell to emerging markets.
APPLE DON'T KNOW WHAT THEY'RE DOING. SELL ALL YOUR SHARES!!!!
The answer is quite simple of you think about it. Apple plays by their own rules, not the rules set forth by the so-called experts. And that annoys the experts to no end so they retaliate. Simple “I’ll show YOU since you ignored my demands.” That and the old meme “Success breeds contempt.”
@ brlawyer: so, you have never seen anyone with a 5c- therefore, by your definition, it is a flop? I think a flop is defined as "completely unsuccessful"- perhaps you'd better check the definition again and increase your definition to include more people than just yourself. At least this writer did his research, unlike many others who simply rely on their name, or paper/magazine's name, to provide credibility-
I am Shock!
Someone at HuffingtonPost is really upset.

Notwithstanding AI's great efforts above, the fact is: the 5C is a FLOP, aka the IIvx/IIvi of the iPhone world.
Even Apple itself admitted that sales were not "in line" (euphemism for "sorry, we haven't sold that many") - besides, they were absolutely sure that it would sell well in emerging markets and lower strata of industrialized markets; but they did not realize that the 5S was just marginally more expensive, particularly when such phones are sold in instalments or with more expensive plans.
In other words, Cook completely misinterpreted demand trends just like what Apple did with the PowerBook when it didn't produce enough units of the specific notebook model really wanted by the public.
I have never seen anyone with a 5C - and I can assure you that the 5C will go down in history as one of Apple's major market failures ever; it will be quietly discontinued in the coming months (or, more appropriately, "superseded" by revamped non-5C models).
Is this enough or you need more?
Main reason apart from I have already mentioned? In previous times, Apple would lower the older model's price to 99 USD or so, or exactly what has NOT happened to the 5C, which carried a much higher price tag - and don't even come with the nonsensical excuse that Apple deliberately created another product line just to drive up sales of the 5S - no company is THAT stupid.
Just clear evidence that Cook should have stayed as COO, not CEO.
