i've had phones with nfc for over a year now and honestly i haven't used it so thats not a deal breaker for me, what is though is lack of innovation

It is a deal breaker if you're like me, always shopping with Paypal mobile in-stores and other electronic payments that utilizes NFC on your mobile phone.

dam cheap u.s phone plans 37 bucks a month for a 64gb iphone 5s with 0 down, here in canada the cheapest is like 50 a month with 99 down PLUS friggin 3 year contracts, no wonder teenage americans have 800 dollar smartphones *(moves to u.s for cheap phones)

No no no no. That 37 a month is just for the phone. You have to get a plan with that as well which will probably be like 70 at the cheapest on ATT. Phones and plans are actually quite expensive here for no reason. We pay like the most.

Anyway saying that, I'd never in my life get an iPhone. You couldn't pay me enough to use that junk. I've had real smartphones and have just been spoiled. Couldn't use that toy.

"The Apple iPhone 5s is $199.99 (16GB), $299.99 (32GB) and $399.00 (32GB)."
Well darn, that 32GB is too expensive for me, so I'll go with the cheaper 32GB?

good strategy by apple,i glad they don't go into price war,highly damaging to both company and loyal customer
imagine BMW price their new 3 series same as a toyota,what the existing BMW owner will think,when every tom, ditch and cheap harry can own a BMW now
hope apple keep this strategy,separate apple owner from cheap android bargain hunter

Not sure where you live, but BMW 3 Series are as common as Camrys where I live and far less reliable.
Not to mention that a (cheap, bargain hunter targeted) 2014 BMW 320i is pretty close to the price of a well-equipped Camry these days... yet offers half the features and a lesser warranty.
Anyway... This whole smartphone 'installment payment' thing is such a scam, and why anyone would buy the iPhone 5c is beyond comprehension as it's nothing more than an iPhone 3 (2012) in a plastic case.
Just buy a (now heavily discounted) iPhone 5 and put it in a plastic case - DONE!

Apple is stopping production of the iPhone 5, it's being replaced with the 5C for $99.99. The line up is now 4S, 5C and 5S.

They say 0 down but you have to pay for the tax off the full retail price when you do the next program. So you pay tax off 650 which is about $45

do you not live in America? Obvsiously there's tax.
