Even in a country like India where iPhone prices($1172 USD) are very high, it was sold ... moreYes, every year they come out with 8,000 phones(during launch day) for a country like India which will definitely be sold out in a day. Compare that with S4 or Note 3 launches, numbers are very low

We all now why Iphone flies out of the shelves. Why would anyone buying Iphone 5c compromise they status?
Apple this time ridiculed them self.
If the 5C had same hardware it would be just as good Orr better than the rest. But it's like my iPhone 5.. Not 5s inside and this is crazy since the pride with the 5C is so close.
Don’t worry folks Google will soon clean up all these hi profile’s companies’ habits for overpriced devices with 300% profit/unit and the ones with so called budget phones that deliver crappy android user experience.

leak cheang, 15 Nov 2013I just bought iPhone 5C. , kinda cool device, what I like the most is the smoothness of the IOS . Me too proud iPhone 5c user! No more comment here!!!
Of course it will fail!! Apple made sure it would fail so that iPhone 5s will have a boost in sales..
The pride of apple is the price. No matter what product they create, it will always overprice. And fans of these product still love it and willing to buy. Good luck for those who are willing to spend a lot of money.
Why this is a surprise. iPhone 5s sells well only in subsidy markets. Wherever iPhone is pitted against its premium competitors in the unlocked and contract free territories, iPhone will fare badly
Its expected. The price here in India is stupendously high. One can get Note2/XZ at far lesser price !!!
Lets face it apple are just a big greedy company. Who are quite happy to rip you off any chance they can.
I actually love the 5c but Apple got it all wrong - the idea of a 'budget' phone was so enticing but they ended up charging a premium for it. I know they want to protect their 'luxury' pricing structure but come on, it's time to be sensible and make some products 'affordable' - people love and would like to own iPhones and Apple products but the price tag puts many off

The problem is it's cost. Why buy that when they get the premium model for a little more? Make that 5c like 170-200 USD and it will sell like hot cakes but that would send Apple's stocks plummeting to the point of no return. Cutting back on staff and reduce expenditure will soon follow.
Apple works on a high profit model they can't compete on lower margins.
Expected this, horribly priced, price was competing with iPhone 5, this should have been like 450$, apple are retarded when it comes to pricing
iPhone 5C is still expensive because you're not buying the device, but you're buying the "Apple" brand...
