It's funny how clueless Tim Cook is. He doesn't even understand why people are buying their products. I don't know a single person who would buy the 5S because of Touch ID.
zerg, 28 Jan 2014OK ever heard of HTC ONE, XPERIA Z and Z1, NOKIA 920, NOKIA 925, NOKIA 1020, LG OPTIMUS G ? ... moreAbsolutely. The only people who still think iphones are a premium product are fanboys and the ignorant who don't know they're now made in Chinese factories. So it's no surprise the quality has suffered
lol!, 28 Jan 2014theirs only one problem with apple "very EXPINSIVE for medranged specs"..lower your ... moreApple is very much at the top right now. They've just made a record of 54 million iPhones sold last quarter. They keep breaking their own records quarter after quarter.

Anything Apple does, everyone else copies. 64-bit processor, fingerprint scanner. Wait for Apple to release an iPhone with solar charging this year and watch everyone else copy that next year.
there's always going to be copyright infringement lawsuits and Rockstar to back their profits up. why even continue making phones when you have the pattents? :))
theirs only one problem with apple "very EXPINSIVE for medranged specs"..lower your pride apple your not on the top right now!
Apple is a premium company.
They should drop that 5C and go back to their old model... 4S, 5, 5S, then 5, 5S, 6 and so on.
popye, 28 Jan 2014Define "high-end product." There's no smartphone with a more premium look and feel ... moreHTC ONE, Xperia Z, Xperia Z1 and the list goes on...
the thing is you apple fanboys are in so much denial its ridiculous, yeah iphones are good but like blackberry they're not keeping up with the rest of the market, unless apple actually start 'Innovating' something they will be left behind

The problem with the "C" is that it's the cheap version of a premium brand; people love a cheap samsung, but they twist their lips if you say "cheap iphone", they would rather get an older, but equally premium iPhone 5 than a 5c; this is psychology.
5C is an expensive thing. As well as the 5s but it is more classy indeed that's why people preferred that over that cute plastic colored 5c. I'd rather have my galaxy S2 and get rooted with 4.4 kitkat lol. I never even tried to buy an iPhone but i love their iPods because they are the only company that makes a great music player. Damn.
Ay2Cyrus, 28 Jan 2014nothing new, apple go back to your drawing boards, and INNOVATE!Tell that to Android manufacturers. They're the ones who should innovate instead of copying Apple. They're just going to have 64-bit processor and fingerprint sensor while Apple will be introducing solar charging and sapphire screen this year.
Ay2Cyrus, 28 Jan 2014nothing new, apple go back to your drawing boards, and INNOVATE!Tim cook is better than Steve jobs pls ask gsmarena what points I sended them abt innovation
"With this kind of spec + little features + high hell price still manage to achieve this much sales, to me is actually can be considered as a miracle....."
Exactly. I am out of words for the unreasonable pricing and sales of iphone 5c.
iPhone 5c plastic body construction is superior to the iPhone 5s aluminum chassis, and all so better than Samsung cheap plastic constructed body.
They say the 5C never sold as well as well as the 5s!
With a statement like that no wonder Samsung is out doing them!
Who in they right mind would buy the 5c! wen the 5S has so much punch under the hood for a $1 more?
It's like selling someone two identical looking Mercedes-Benz, one with a 4 cylinder for $499, and one with a V8 twin turbo charge for $500!!! Witch one you think they're going to choose?
popye, 28 Jan 2014Define "high-end product." There's no smartphone with a more premium look and feel ... moreHigh-end means top specs and top performance. Top specs mean top CPU(in other words well-performing in benchmarks such as Linpack-for-Android-and-not-for-iOS), top camera, top battery life, top connectivity (no iPhone has such top features). Top performance means an adaptable and versatile software, which rarely lags, so basically Android is the only option for top performance on Flagship Phones (capital letters for emphasis, as we're only talking about flagships here), with its proper multitasking, file manager, app integration. iOS is practically devoid of features that are actually useful, so the iPhone is woefully outdated and hugely overpriced.
