used to be using iphone 4s but migrated to xperia v. it's an older model but working better especially the battery life. will be waiting for the iphone 6 but also waiting for xperia z2...
so it's clear that its not the IOS or whats inside Iphone that sold millions of iphone it was the premium casing
plastic body on iphones dont sell(confirmed)
but funny how Samsung was able to sell soo many with plastic body. imagine waht samsung could have achived with premium casing.
i expected this when i saw the pricing first thing. its just not worth it. you can premium android phones for less. and much better. big fail.
Who the hell is going to buy iPhone 5c while has the same price and specs like iPhone 5. If it was me IPhone 5 with aluminium body would be my choice... By the way I hate I phones... Ex iphone4s ( good phone ) owner, happy with lg g2 now.
mir, 15 Nov 2013Well duh! It was supposed to be a budget oriented phone but they went ahead and priced it insanely.Frank?
AnonD-33529, 15 Nov 2013I actually love the 5c but Apple got it all wrong - the idea of a 'budget' phone was so entici... morepeople ??? who??? ahhh yeah the folk beyond 50 of age and the one who leaves on rock. just saying
Unapologized plastic ! hahahaha, biggest flop of the year award. There are many better phones out there at 1/3 of price, unless you're a blinded fanboy.
Just offer different colours on the 5s and that way you keep premium look! Samsung are the pros when it comes to plastic and apple are the pros when it comes to glass and metal! The 5c looks horrible like a cheap xperia tipo or low end lumia!
AnonD-33529, 15 Nov 2013I actually love the 5c but Apple got it all wrong - the idea of a 'budget' phone was so entici... moreThe idea of apple was never to build a budget phone.It was just a rumor that wasnt true.5c is just plastic iphone 5 which aliuminium case is trasfered to the 5s for production cost savings.
The reasons are simple people coming to buy Apple only because of solid design and better aesthetic appeal.
Almost all apps of android are available with ios too.
so apps are not an issue here. I moved from S4 to 5s in India only because of that. HTC 1 and Huawei P6 got their success on the same way. Lets see what Samsung can do to retain customers like me.
5c is totally worthless.5s much better than 5c...
5c price is above 45K........
What is this.Apple copied to Nokia's Lumia smartphones...I definitely say..Apple can't make any smartphone like Lumia...
Lumia is ultimate..
AnonD-33529, 15 Nov 2013I actually love the 5c but Apple got it all wrong - the idea of a 'budget' phone was so entici... moreYour right they said it was to be a budget phone for emerging markets like China and its backfired due to greed ..
Also if they had put it at its proper price of about 250GBP on pay as you go they would have made a killing.They made folk believe that Apple were finally introducing not a cheap or low end but a BUDGET iphone and they didn't,thank goodness the Chinese have sense not to fall for it..
I have iphone and yes it is that fastest consistant phone going but that is no excuse to rob the public..Aluminium is not premium or expensive and neither is memory Apple make you think that..So what are we actually paying for,,,,,,,,Apples profits..If they charged like other companys they would not have billions in the bank...That billions is their cause they robbed it off the public..
Here in UK they put Apple fanatics under an MRI scanner and they are addicted to Apple products..All the reward centers in the brain like when you take heroin or eat chocolate the same brain areas lit up on the scan..
Well duh! It was supposed to be a budget oriented phone but they went ahead and priced it insanely.
Not surprised. the chinese want innovation. not a plastic Iphone 5. to be honest im shocked it did this well. Hence why Android is the dominant smartphone OS.
And Apple will make money, but never be on par with Sony/HTC/Samsung. so why bother. just stick to what they do best, High end smartphones. Iphone 5S.
