I don’t think so. The 5c may be plastic, but then again so were the 1st gen iPhone , the 3G and 3GS, and they established Apple’s reputation as a manufacturer of quality smartphones. Samsung Galaxies are plastic, but I don’t hear too many people complaining about them (except some Apple devotees, which is now a bit ironic). The specs, which is what actually matters most in my opinion, are solid for the 5c; almost identical to the now disappearing iPhone 5.
