Jarret, 11 Oct 2013iPhone5C is looked like a cheap plastic body...
Samsung S4 and Note 3 are very nice looking g... moreI have held both. And you are incorrect. Yes the 5C is "just an iPhone 5". But that's still enough horsepower to compete with the S4 performance wise which is going to be more than enough for 90% of population - and make no mistake the 5C feels 100x better than the phones you mentioned. No bias just facts. Samsung has that El cheapo build quality to it. That's a fact. The apple feels like a little rock. As if it's made if metal almost.
Apples only problem is that the 5C is priced a bit high for the amount if features it is missing compared with this years giant horse powered 5S.
Anonymous, 11 Oct 2013People around me all buying iPhone 5s, no one seems to be interested in 5cPeople round me not buying any,2 5c in second hand shop 32gb 479GBP but not seen or know anyone with 5s or 5c.The usual UK shops near me all have full stock bar gold in all sizes..Most are samsung ,yellow lumias and iphone 4/4s ,lots of Sammy Notes around which is even more odd and most of the owners are female?

Phat-t, 10 Oct 2013HA! Take that Apple! I'm not an Apple hater, I just dont agree with what they're trying to do ... moreYes, Apple uses the carrot on a stick trick to get consumers to follow them down the road. The next phone always a few more features then their last, but after their first iphone, Apple is AT LEAST 6 months to 1 year behind the leading phone manufacturers in terms of features.
Apple is one Company that has no mercy with its Customers. They are trying to rip more money by launching a "Budget Phone" with a premium price and with those people crazy about iPhone without thinking will fall into this scheme. After buying they will find out it is a ROTTEN APPLE hahaha
Comrade, 10 Oct 20131. Price 2. Girly colours (no black or grey)Anyone seen the pink colored 5c? It looks horrific. It's not even a bright pink...looks like someone left it in the washer with too much bleach.

Jim Hart, 11 Oct 2013Seriously 5C (16G)unlock version should be sold at $250.To be a seriously contender it needs to be around $125.00-$150.00
I said this would happen. The 5c is too expensive by about 2x-4x when compared to phones by Asian manufacturers with the same features. It's not so important for most people to be seen carrying a phone with the bitten Apple logo on the phone.
apple fans buy apple products because they are ridiculously expensive even though the os is crappy
so it is expected that this version is not selling much because it is cheap
r, 10 Oct 2013it is not flop idea.it did its work.look at 5s sales.dirty tricks. waiting for what next trick is.Yep, i agree, it was a scam/dirty trick right from the start. Build two phones (one premium and one old tec), cause an imaginary delay/stock problem for the premium phone, which may help push sales of the old tec phone (it's still an Iphone after all) and cause panic buying (of existing stock) of the premium phone. Then reduce the output of the old tec phone, Leaving the premium to rake in the rest of the profits. Win Win, $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$.
The iPhone 5c was a decoy all along, used as a dirty trick to con the customers into buying an Apple product, they (Apple) don't care which one (but the premium is preferable), just as long as it's an Apple product.
They probably shifted production to Foxconn's plant in Brazil in preparation for a December launch.
Brazil has high import tariffs which is why a lot of phone manufacturers have factories there.
