Cheap phone getting more cheaper. Who needs a 8GB no MicroSD phone?
Apple is just like a person asking for money without offering anything. I was a fan of Apple but giving features at a price the products don't deserve is quite silly. Its better to buy HTC.
Maybe 200 quid fir the 16gb will work but those prices fir 8gb is just retarded.if you want some apps and some media you need 32gb for most purposes.for 400 u get s4or htc onewhich i have which are way packed than any iphone
the 5c was apparently sitting in stockpiles for various carriers since it basically didn't sell. recently we've seen an point relase of ios come out.
i propose that apple actually hasn't bothered creating an 8gb model, but instead has implemented a firmware / software update that allows limiting the capcity of the phone. that is, it locks out 8gb of space.
why? well carriers pre-buy the 5c. if they can't sell them they lose out. however it also means they'll be less likely to bulk order more iphone (even the higher model). so the carriers make "less" of a loss, apple allows them to cripple the existing 16gb model and gets the carrier to sell it at a lower price point.
Feb 2013, Nokia released an "affordable" 8gb device with an sd card slot. how innovative, apple !
An apple fan, 18 Mar 2014I would have been better,if you would've place iphone 5 as it is instead of replacing with 5c.100% agree with you....iphone 5 was better than this plastic toy.
Still way overpriced for a supposedly budget iphone. Yeah, keep trying to milk the masses, Apple!
So the cheap iPhone costs as much as 1 Nexus 5 + 1 Moto G. SO you really need to be dumb to buy it.
Anonymous, 18 Mar 2014Still expensive. Apple please release a 4gb variantPlease check U'r head! 4GiB variant wouldn't even sufficient for installing iOS.
Very bad step for Apple, they should offer better price for 16GiB model instead of creating this cr*p variant.
Apple brand logo... Check
Plastic body... Check
8GB... Hmmm, at least it's slightly cheaper, but then 5s...
Apple's way of pushing would be buyers to get the 16GB iPhone 5c instead. And then look at the 5s too. Devious.
Hahaha ! iPhone 5C 16 GB model offers 12.6 Gb out of the box. What will this 8Gb model will offer ? iPhone 5C 16 Gb model itself is not a good option for purchasing. When you spend so much amount on a mobile, you will atleast make sure that you have enough storage to keep your things.. Instead of introducing a 8 Gb model, it would be sensible if Apple decreased the 16 GB model down.. Still, I wont consider it.. Now a days there are posts all around the web to increase flagship device's storage to 32GB minimum and what apple is doing here ? Clearly, it shows the decline in its market share, year by year. In US, its ok, carrier's are there to offer iPhones for as low as 199$ but here in india we have to spend almost 892$ for iPhone 5C 32 Gb model, no other choice. If you continue like this, Apple you are soon going to get buried. Mark my words.
AnonD-208345, 18 Mar 2014At that price tag only fools will buy this phone. True as hell.
