Simpler answer - people are accustomed to price pyramid, where cheaper stuff is supposed to sell in higher quantities than more expensive stuff. 5C fails to follow this for various reasons, and the brain of the simple minded locks up. DED - love your articles, keep on writing!

apple iphone 5c is not a flop u r right.but calling it "world's second most popular smartphone behind iPhone 5s" is bit exagerration and "Apple's iPhone 5c outselling Blackberry, Windows Phone and every Android flagship in Q4 " worldwide is a lie may be in us.
Notwithstanding AI's great efforts above, the fact is: the 5C is a FLOP, aka the IIvx/IIvi of the iPhone world.
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of Apple's major market failures ever; it will be quietly discontinued in the coming months (or, more appropriately, "superseded" by revamped non-5C models).
I thought I was seeing mostly the iPhone 5C, in inquiring of the owners I found many 5S users were putting a colored plastic case around it. I'm not surprised the switching android users picked mostly the 5C; they are much more sensitive to the downpayment, they obviously don't look at the bigger picture.
I wouldn't recommend the 4S to anyone, it has too little available memory, only about 1GB.
I'm using my still excellent 3+yr old iPhone 4 on iOS7. Works great, within the 4's hardware capability.
its not a complex, it is just the way it is by default(jealousy). Lesser peeps use the lesser products. Always have always will. If you are a lesser peep then fine, you can be lesser by choice, too.
Name ONE advantage of android.
and explain how that is a disadvantage for iPhone.
Your attitude is incredibly shallow.
Can someone explain to me how, when the 5C managed to outsell Blackberry, Windows Phone and every Android flagship in Q4, this still happens http://www.engadget.com/2014/03/20/winners-2013-engadget-awards-readers-choice/

WTF? I've been to you profile and seen your comments and come to the conclusion that apple is paying you and sending you devices out every launch. They have to be for you to constantly be bashing others. Its a shame that you feel the need to to go to such lengths for you inanimate object. Its pathetic, it really is. Tell Tim Cook I said hi because you two are apparently best friends.

Maybe he is telling the truth about Apple i phones and their other products.
That sounds like it didn’t happen. We tend not to be morons here. " src="http://forums-files.appleinsider.com/images/smilies//lol.gif" />

The article is certainly right in that the "failure" claim is nonsense, nothing to argue.
Still, it does not really account for the fact that, due to the subsidy situation, the 5c seems to be far less relevant in markets with no real subsidies outside the US. I commute between Germany and India and I see tons of 5s and have not seen a single 5c ever. Yes, this is anecdotal, but no best seller page of any local telco lists the 5c at all. (It is hard to really draw conclusions from that though, as most of them treat each color and capacity as a unique device.) My telco has even eliminated all but the white and blue models from their catalog.
Not saying it is a failure, but a US only debuttal is only half the story.
it is JUST you
I see more windows phones than the iPhone 5C to be honest. I also see more android phones than iPhones where I live too. I do see iPhones but because I cant get a good look I cant quite tell if I am seeing a 5 or a 5S.
