Not that i deal in sim locked phones, but most people, and especially iPhone people will say "but i need a subscription anyway". So, average cash down price for iPhones are lower than for android phones.
People love to buy on credit, they see iPhones as free or almost free since its sold almost only through carriers.
AdamBoy64, 18 Mar 2014iPhone 5c isn't selling well, and there is a surplus of 5c units. http://blog.gsmarena.com/... moreAs i said earlier, official numbers from carriers has shown 5c to be among the top 10 bestsellers in many countries. All the rumors really had to go on was that Apple had reduced orders of parts for 5c, but its still one of the worlds best selling smartphones.

Its only in the dreams of the haters that Apple is stuck with lots of unsold 5c phones, in reality it is selling quite well but naturally far the most buyers choose 5s instead.

The 5c is a budget to midrange phone..Yes it runs smooth but its still using early 2011 chips in fact what is expensive in an iphone because aluminium is cheap ,battery plus charger don't cost that much..There is probably 50GBP worth of stuff in a 5s model yet Apple charge 709GBP for a budget model phone with a 38GBP 64 gb memory chip and that's why Apple have billions in bank..
Veronica, 17 Mar 2014Silly move Apple, 8gb for 509 euro, very very silly move.Yep. Just another overpriced Chinese made product from Apple.
8GB and no memory card slot....worthless.
Apple is getting desperate.
Just thinking outloud here. Why going through extra trouble and further expense to disable the existing memory. Why not put the stockpile on sale and reduce the price by 50€ for a limited time? The initial production cost will not change but the sale will most likely move some of the units.
Apple should also release 4GB version of iPhone5C that costs $99 for unlock version.
Apple just want to clear the inventory of the 5C components by reducing the device's price.
They have very huge inventory for 5C, probably in billion dollars!
One way is to reduce the internal memory from 16G to 8G.
Because Apple can use the 16G memory for current iPad, iPod, iPhone 5S and future iPhone.
AnonD-224552, 17 Mar 2014Apple should price between 300-500 $, not the current ridiculous $650 + tax for 16GB version. A flat $300 for this device, I think it'd be a big seller.
