Video showcasing the alleged low-cost iPhone appears - read the full textA rather detailed look at what is allegedly the new budget-range iPhone model has surfaced. Before you get too excited, though, keep in mind that it is only the plastic back panel of the device. In terms of design, the device looks to be hybrid between the Apple 3GS and the iPod Touch...

 

Sort by:

if they would ever release this kind of phone, they should call it iPhone5[M]

M stands for Mass Appeal
M less mass since this is special plastic

:)

He JUST told you he OWNED a 3Gs for 5 years.

If anyone knows about the build quality it's him.

It's like complaining about the White MacBook expanding batteries.

It may be that there will be no plastic iphone. Maybe they're making their iPods Multi color and plastic

The iPods now are horrible. Painted metal and scratches and scuffs. Crap.

@brynn

Part for Part the iPhone 5 and the Galaxy S4 cost about as much to build. Galaxy S4 is around $30 more.

If you buy them unlocked they're not really that far apart in price. So I don't know what you mean by the price being mostly "status" and brand.

Seriously? How common does one become after buying an iPhone. Everyone has one.

I live here in Thailand, 3rd world country, and almost all my 5th grade students have iPhones.

If FEELS CHEAP!

How many times do I have to explain that?

It's about FEELING cheap. That's what people complain about. NOT the plastic. THE FEEL OF IT.

Lumias came out. ALL Plastic. NOBODY has complained about them feeling cheap.

You can compare the Galaxy S4 to this phone. And this is not "iPhone Mini". It's the same size as the iPhone 5.

For example. You can say

With the Galaxy S4 I can check my email, take pictures, take videos, Facebook, browse the Internet, watch videos and listen to my music.

With the Plastic Iphone I can check my email, take pictures, take videos, Facebook, browse the Internet, watch videos and listen to my music.

See? I just compared it.

Jobs said no iPad mini. Jobs died. THEN it came out.

He said there will be no "cheap" iPhone.

And Apple will never release a "Cheap" phone. Apple doesn't make "cheap" products.

Maybe it'll cost a bit less, but it won't be "cheap".

Yes. It's super thin and bends.

It FEELS cheap. That's what we are talking about. Doesn't matter if you can't break it or not. It FEELS cheap.

So my point is, the 3Gs and the Lumia don't feel cheap but the Galaxy phones feel cheap. They're both plastic.
