    It is Still Fragmentation. Anything to disunify is fragmentation in a technical sense.

    Based on this you are stating that every new phone is fragmentation?

    Any device that requires a developer to tweak their app to suit it is fragmentation. Of course this doesn't happen in all cases, please do not take this out of context of what was mentioned before in the thread.

    There's one thing that came with the 5c I hope continues (but fear it won't) -- the larger storage for the mid-range phone.

    It always annoyed me that only the smallest version was available for the older model. So it was nice that the 5c had a 32GB model available.

    I hope this continues next year...

    Who is the ***** that keeps saying the 5C was a failure? STOP IT.
    Couldn't agree more.
    iPhone 5c sales are currently projected to have sold between 12.5 million and 20 million units in the last two quarters.
    When you compare it to the industry the 5c looks to be doing surprisingly well.

    Total sales by handset:
    Nexus 4: sold 3 million units,
    Htc One: 5 million units
    LG g2: 2.2 million units
    Huawei p6: 3 million units
    *Note 3: 10 million shipped (not sold)
    Moto x: 500,000

    Total sales last quarter:
    *Galaxy s4: 9 million-12 million units
    Nokia Lumia Series: 8.8 million units
    *Blackberry 10 sales: 1.1 million units
    *Legacy blackberry sales: 3.2 million.

    *Sell-in figures (these are units shipped not sold).

    You are sadly mistaken if you think I am negatively impacted by the alleged failure of the iPhone 5C. Whether it sold only one or a billion, I could care less because I had no intentions of every buying it. My current device is still serving me quite well..
    A good post, yes why change if you are delighted with your current iPhone. I'm still running iPhone 4 jailbroken and see no reason to change. In fact i hardly use it since the inception of ipad.

    The tech sites and bloggers keep saying some variation of "the 5C is a failure" because it's click bait. I'm as guilty as anyone. As soon as I see something like that, I'm automatically clicking on it. I don't get the failure proclamations either. Don't get it at all. Love my 5C...it's serving me well, very, very well.

    Agreed. I love my 5c and so does all my other iPhone friends. I've even managed to make some of my 5s friends jealous with my phone. You can find plenty of cases with clear/frosted backs that really make this phone stand out.

    I don't see how it failed. My girlfriend and I are both loving our 5Cs (hers is pink, mine is green)
    Only got it a month ago and still enjoying the major upgrade from our 4S'.
    Although, we most likely will update to the 6 when it's released!

    How can it be a failure if it out sold most of the competition?

    The iPhone 5c outsold the Samsung s4 last quarter.
    Hell, last quarter the 5c even outsold all blackberry and Lumia phones, combined.

    If the 5c was a failure why do I see them everywhere. I saw 4 in an hour at my gym earlier this week.

    Another evidence that 'analysts' are clueless. This is a great report and 5C is far from a flop.

    Up until 2012 Apple didn't give us any options for a phone. It was just one.

    There are some theories why Apple chose to make a second phone.

    the idea of Apple releasing two phones
    But every year Apple always has 3 phones for sale. The current year's flag ship for $199 on contract for 16 gb, the pervious year's flagship for $99 on contract, and the flag ship from two years past for free on contract. What did Apple do differently this time other than making last year's flagship have a plastic chassis instead of an aluminum one (only to save costs and it's still one of the most premium feeling phones to date plastic or not) and add a letter to the name?

    Sales would say the 5C was not a failure. Apple gained a lot of new customers with this device and maintained a lot as well.
