    Its a serious money spinner. Instead of making the iphone 5 free as they have done with year old models previously they have made it cheaper to make but carried on charging for it. The ifans will still buy it in millions without realising they are getting shafted.
    That's what its about, release the same phone every year, just add an 'S' and tell people we've worked extremely hard for millions of years to add that S, takes a lot of effort.

    I don't say that, someone on a youtube video did :p

    No doubt it will help them in North America but not so much in the rest of the world where they are losing market share quite fast.
    That's interesting, I thought they were holding at 18% or so for quite a while? ( android 79%, wp7/8 around 2-3% total) ?

    Who are they losing to?

    I feel this thread is like a time bomb, waiting for that 1 post that can cause a big explosion!
    Specially if some fanboy comes in to defend the other side.

    I think that's being a bit dramatic. There are a number of post, maybe not defending necessarily, but at least acknowledging that the iPhone as a decent piece of hardware. Even if not too different from each previous variation. I think ultimately, folks need to step back and not take this stuff way too seriously. I love my gadgets as much as the next person. But that doesn't go beyond them being material objects that I need to defend or justify buying over a similar product (unless its convincing my wife why I bought it in the first place, lol).

    I read somewhere that in spite of the first impression iPhone 5C is really innovative. Now I can imagine these thousands of 5C buyers repeating like mantra: I've bought innovative phone... I've bought innovative phone...

    $600 dollars for a BUDGET iPhone ? they really need to bring out the iPhone 5cc for $300 less. I don't need a flagship device to browse the web, send sms's, make phone calls and check email.



    ....why do I own a $700 phone ?....

    Iphone 5c is innovation at its best because only the rarest of rare will come up with budget phones at 549$ . May be Plastic means budget for apple .And this time they should get the innovative idea award.

    I think that apple just wants to keep making/minting money and not stoop to 400 dollars to make it cheaper. They will lose that luxury brand tag if they did that...

    You people seem hung up on the "budget" notion. Where has Apple claimed the 5c is a budget device? Because I watched most of their keynote, and I don't remember them calling it that. "Budget" is what was rumored beforehand, which turned out to be unrepresentative of Apple's intention for the device.

    Apple already lost their premium/luxury brand status when they decided to slap a cheap-looking colored plastic on the obsolete iPhone 5.

    The no. of devices apple is selling is heading south, altough not at 400 mph but maybe 20 mph, bad thing in long run.

    I think it ridiculous if you compare to with other devices in the same price and they didn't even add new features to it the 5S got!

    I don't think the actual sales numbers are going down, but market share is dropping. Each iPhone has sold more than its predecessor, but since there are 2 new ones now, I doubt whether that'll happen this time.

    You're probably correct! Actually what I'm thinking is that this time there are 2 new phones instead of 1, so sales will be split between them. I'm sure that both together will break the previous record, but it's going to be more difficult for one of them to do it.
