AnonD-8044, 22 Mar 2016It is because lots just want an iPhone as cheap as possible and will only use it to talk/text ... moreBro, you cant compare any other phone with an iphone. Other brands use 8 core processors to give out equivalent to the 2 core processor of iphone, Others use a 3/4 GB RAM where is even a 1 GB RAM is Enough for an Iphone still it has upgraded to 2 GB, Check out the GPU Performance. I guess when lower specs is able to give higher output thats called - Optimal Performance.
AnonD-189417, 22 Mar 2016Why is apple keep on making 16gb IPhones it doesn't make sense It is because lots just want an iPhone as cheap as possible and will only use it to talk/text and bit of Facebook so don't need any big GB of storage. All they want is that Apple logo and don't care as long as it does basics,
I do agree though Apple are a greedy, greedy company always have been but the products they make are bit more simple for users and do generally tend to work and apps more polished. I go between Android and IOS but will take Nokias side if they enter the market.
dks, 22 Mar 2016This phone doesn't worth $500 we can buy two or three decent android devices with this amount ... moreThere are some good bargains but it is always quality of other components,lcd screen poor quality outdoors, poor mics, camera dodgy, software, updates, where to go if if fails, what if you break it and need components to repair it? ANY chinese phone in UK is not resalable I've tried plus any grey imports the second hand shops etc will not accept them.
They along with Sony are have made a true mini. I hope Samsung make their mini a true mini this year and competition builds for this size of phone (4-4.6 inch). Sick of giant phones.
They have taken the industrial design I like best instead of these smooth rounded phones and put in 2015 spec. The 32gb Sony z5 mini came out in UK sim free at 429GBP so this is good price for 64gb and being Apple. It will be blazing fast as well and have decent microphones because lots Androids fail at concerts/nightclubs because they cannot handle bass,I always trust Nokia/Apple with these microphone components.
In a way it is what I wanted but still want to see what else comes out. LG G5. HTC 10 ETC.
This phone doesn't worth $500 we can buy two or three decent android devices with this amount Apple ripping people big time still people going to buy it god save them
Why not 32gb storage, 16gb barely enough and 64gb unnecessary to pay the price for a small phone. Small phone do have some advantages if you mostly use the phone outside.
Sony still make the best compact phones, good luck to Apple with this iPhone 5.
The mother of all phones. Fantastic design (best ever of any phone so far by any company) with powerful features. Squared edges for easy holding, only about 110 grams in weight, can use easily with one hand; just superb, I'm ecstatic that they kept the best shape of any phone ever the squared edges as with 5s. The price is actually much cheaper when compared to stupid ugly iPhone 6s that ugly curved slippery edge phone that looks like a brick next to ear or in pocket like a book.
This is indeed a true follow of Iphone 4S. One of the main feature was ability to use with only Thumb. Most small phone lovers have to compromise with features but this has almost evething of latest 6S.
Wish could have bought it had it been a little cheaper.
Hope to see great add on value.
