Jimmy Case, 24 May 2014Damping ground for Apple!sorry we(ind) dumped apple!
Apple has no scope in India...why do they even try? People are not fools to spend so much for a stupid phone that didnt sell in any of the major markets.
Its not so bad actually, there are many people in this world who would be content with just 8gb space, although ironically they won't reading any comments or articles on gsmarena to agree with this comment :P
Before you start blasting me, let me tell you I do agree its terrible VFM and wp8 handsets would anyday be better deal if you put in the money part. But if you want to go Apple (the main reason) and don't care about space you will save 4Ks.
grown up apple ... its nt worth here in this price of point... #DownTimeStartsNow
Heheh.. apple go home .. no one is buying it in india.. Reduce its price to 6000/- ... !! Just go home!
Cant believe this pricing by Apple India. 8GB - no expandable memory & a plastic body for INR37,500???. it should have been 10k cheaper. LG G2 / Z1 Compact / Nexus 5 are far superior than this one.
muhs, 24 May 2014Actually,india is one of the countries where wp devices sell more than iphones. So, lots of pe... moreYes WP are good replacement for this. Android phones are completely different from it but Nokia Lumia series can beat these phones any time in every way.
Indians are smart that's why
iPhone doesn't lag and yes its problem free unlike Android and might be fancy as well but........
Too expensive and a micro Display Apple think Asians are stupid like Americans but aren't nobody is gonna buy this cheap phone unless it is around $150 or even less than that.
rt324, 24 May 2014apple is not the fool for setting this price, people are brain damaged for buying their produc... moreTheir products are regarded as a symbol of status. You are very right, their phones are not worth buying at those exploiting prices.
popye, 24 May 2014Nobody cares about Lumia. The only way to get Lumia into the hands of many is to give them for free.Actually,india is one of the countries where wp devices sell more than iphones. So, lots of people, specially Indians, care about lumia. If there's any indication, the lumia 630 is in the top daily phones in gsmarena.
Production cost BOM of 5s having 16 gb is just $199 and apple claims premium phone. Cheaper this model may cost $160 and who fools gonna pay $650 . Hahahaaaa . Our home products are much more better than that retail price is around $300 . Do not lose money just on brands. Look apple sales less phones but profit is soo big or highest in the world . This is not because of quality because production cost is much less than Samsung, sony , lg , Htc even huawei , zte etc.
mir, 24 May 2014My fellow countrymen would be ashamed of me? Well, the upvotes on my previous comment states o... moreActually, the 8GB iPhone 5Cs on other countries were already released months ago. Our's is apparently the last in Asia (look it up). Apple's marketing play towards us (indians) makes it look like we don't deserve their expensive phones by delaying releases. Just because our country is poor, doesn't mean most of us can't afford their products.
Android user next, 24 May 2014Apple has failed many times in India. This is another epic fail. The only reason why iPhone failed in India is because of its high price. If Apple decide to reduce to price of their products, they would obliterate everything on the market. An iPhone and an Android at the same price are just no contest.
