The iPhone 5C is colorful! The iPhone 5C is cute! The iPhone 5C also comes with a ridiculous case that looks like a cross between Connect Four, a cheese grater and Crocs. Hmm... maybe that's where Apple got the 'c' in 5C. Most people with eyes think the 5C case is just plain ugly. Some people might be even terrified of the holey case. But there are a few humans out there that actually think the iPhone 5C case looks great.
