Apple have always lowered the price of previous models to a reasonable standard, and until the pricing of the 5C has been officially confirmed all you speculators quite frankly haven't got a leg to stand on.

iPods are a fraction of the price without voice capabilities, so why wouldn't a cheaper version of iPhone be just as affordable? Come on, common sense.

Is there any different? I see just an old iPhone5 cover up with a cheap third party case design. That why it name 5c? Apple go where now? Design more likely go to HTC,Nokia and Sony. Hardware go to samsung champ with their massive component. Apple still do nothing. OS it ok but boring......

Iphone 5c is almost 3 times the price of lumia 520 and L3 II... so It is really impractical to buy that thing which is just a run down version of iphone4s. Id rather add a few bucks for Iphone 5 or 4s as I see a less differece with their price tag..

The saddest thing is that the 5Cheap will probably be the same price even or dearer than the SGS4, One, Xperia Z, 1020, Nexus 4, Moto X etc.
