meso111, 15 Sep 2013Yeah Apple calls it budget BUDGET MY A$$When did apple ever call this phone "budget"?
Am I looking at Nokia Lumia 620?
Oh, maybe Apple will sue Nokia for copying iPhone 5C.
Hiren, 15 Sep 2013The PHONE is called as Iphone 5C .... If "C" means Cheap then what do we call other ... moreNot really.
People buy the iPhone not because of brand but because of the build quality and long term use. Also support, in-store and phone.
All these things cost money.
You can get a Chinese or Taiwanese copy (there are plenty of iPhone 5 copies here in thailand) that have quad core CPUs and 1080p displays for a fraction of the cost of an iPhone 5.
But what are you buying really? Do you honestly think an iPhone copy can sell that cheap and be a good quality product? How long will you use it until it breaks? Who will you call for a warranty issue?
At the end of the day; people are free to buy whatever they want for whatever reason. It's not up to you to be the world's shopping police. Let people buy what they want.
Eventually the 5c and the Note 3 and the LG G2 and all these phones are all going to end up in the same pile of junk disposed recyclable phones.
Mitish, 14 Sep 2013Used this phone for 15 mins,no require gorila glass,touch is fantastic,plastic they have use i... moreIt feels premium because of the way it is built. It is the structure of the pone, it isn't a plastic back like the Lumia 620. That's why the Lumia 620 is a cheap phone. Anyone can churn out plastic backs one after the other.
The iPhone 5s' body is the structure. Everything is build around that. It is reinforced with steel and it is painted with thick coats of glossy paint which gives the phone a solid and very rich feel.
[deleted post]It looks like a Lumia 620 to you because you really don't know about it.
The lumia 620 has a removable flimsy plastic back.
This is not the same as engineering 1 piece of polycarbonate and build the phone from the inside of that structure.
Not the same at all.
The PHONE is called as Iphone 5C .... If "C" means Cheap then what do we call other low budged brand phones ???
40100 for Iphone 5C in India.
Do you call this CHEAP ?
I dont understand why all these phones are so damm expensive ... infact there are some Booming Companies like Micromax , Karbon etc are making good phones with better camera , features etc at a very less cost !
Also - If a company initially sells a phone for a huge price then comes down to half ..
But people are fool to continue buying such products ,,, just bcoz of BRAND ?????
Coz a same thing which a SAMSUNG S3/4 does , one can do it with Micromax !
Pitty on fools who spends a lott on such stupid Gadgets ..
Another thing for apple.... but still if u get back from first iphone up to 5s and 5c, i dnt see much evolution on their phones.. Pretty much almost the same designs, not much of a increase on the screen, no better camera, still cant share files via blutooth, limited downloads to other websites, still non removable and no sd slots.. again this is apple, regardless if they have disadvantages, u can thank them because of the speed, the ios is still doing good and they are exceeding our expectations. Still pretty and sleek design.. So if u are a ios user and an apple fan, always go for iphone.. for android users surely wont even glance at this phone... #so whether its ios, wp, or android, still buy what you like and what you need and most importantly depends on your budget. Be wiser guys

Jean83, 14 Sep 2013So does this iphone 5c has any sort of gorilla(or whatever) protective glass? Yes it uses Gorilla Glass
This phone is the iPhone 5. Nothing more. But they are offering it in fun colors to match ios 7. That's all. This phone isn't supposed to break the mold. It's just an iPhone 5.
The 5s is the typical iPhone incremental update. It'll be a solid phone that runs ios very well.
If you're into iPhones and you are looking to update; then the 5s is the one to buy.
There's nothing wrong with iPhones. It's just another choice. That's all.
