Anonymous, 12 Sep 2013what is mean by 2 year contract in 5cThe $99 is a subsidized price and is applicable only when a consumer buys the phone along with a two-year contract with a telecom operator. Almost all smartphones in the US and some other developed countries like the UK are sold on the contract basis. The device manufacturer, which in case of iPhone is Apple, and telecom operators enter into a partnership. The telecom operator pays the full price of the iPhone to Apple. It then sells that phone at a subsidized price but recoups the money through the services and data plans that a consumer has to take as part of the two-year contract.
Anonymous, 12 Sep 2013i totally called it,there is no way apple would ever offer any low price phone,or anything in ... moreUsually Apple keep selling the phone that gets replaced but Apple are being so greedy that instead of keep selling the iPhone 5 they stop selling it and replace with this thing which has identical spec and which costs them less to make so they make even more profit, Because if you check the Apple store they already stopped selling the iPhone 5 so people have to buy this.
Now Apple will sue Nokia for copying this phone with their Lumia 620. LOL!
i totally called it,there is no way apple would ever offer any low price phone,or anything in there line up.look at the ipad for instance.way overpriced.
The other kind of built materials are much better. Unless it's a gift for a girl or child 5c would do fine.
Let me get this straight...Instead of dropping the price of the current iphone as they usually would, Apple are actually downgrading the handset by adding a plastic cover and bezel (that make it look more like a Nokia than an iphone), and they still have the nerve to charge what they normally would have done anyway had they just stuck with the iphone 5?
I've nothing against Apple, or Samsung for that matter, and in my comments I always try to be neutral. The problem is that I can't defend Apple when they are not only removing one of their key selling points ie premium materials and build, but they are frankly having a complete joke with the price as well. I applaud them for at least adding some of the long overdue functionalities to the OS, but to do this to the iphone 5 and charge the [rice they are is laughable. Don't get me wrong, it will probably sell well; but there are a lot of people who would also buy a turd as long as it had Apple/Samsung/HTC/Nokia (delete as appropriate)on it.
whats the price of apple 5c when is cooming soon in the hyderabad market
Here C is stands for colors :-) they simply introduced few many plastic color cases to the iphone 5. Other specifications are literally same. That's why we are not able to order a iphone 5 in Apple store. I think it's a cheap strategy. Not a cheap cell phone :-)
what they r thinking when they build this phone.same to same nokia lumia 520 design and the price is so much u can get lumia in 140 euro and s3 in 300 euro so why we buy a 410 euros plastic device!!
i wish the iphone 5C price s reasonable NOT fancy price so only elite people got iphone, When iphone 5C will be realeased in indonesia..?
