You see, it's not plastic but hard-coated polycarbonate. That's cool news. It will beat every cheap Android. Just launch it worldwide with a price tag of 100$.

Anonymous, 11 Sep 2013Look at the Daily Interest of GSMArena and you know who is the king. By daily interest D... moreInterest, and comments, have little to do with sales. Why do cheap Samsung mobiles rate highly on daily interest - because people use the facility for chatting and comments, which do not translate to actual sales in any one particular country. In fact the number of hits is misleading, and you will find in a week that Apple will have half the level of interest or could even be off the list.
This is one of the reasons i read GSM Arena it not only give news also specifications and unbiased reviews so Apple announced the SAME Phone only with finger print scanner oh please also the cheap for 550 if i want a cheap phone i would but an Android or Windows they have better specifications sadly many more people needs to visit this site for enlightenment
Doesn't come cheap. Costs as much as the iPhone5 and that's a premium phone not some bright plastic.
@Naveen: read carefully: "...and cost $99 for the 16GB and $199 for the 32GB, BOTH ON A 2-YEAR CONTRACT". So, prices aren't set by Apple, but by vendors.
oohh best phone yet i hve ever seen.....just gotta need to bye one so much specs in just 99$ n 199$ just really aesum
