Value for money: Apple iPhone 5c pricing stacked up against the competition (not pretty)
0. phoneArena 12 Sep 2013, 03:19 posted on
The basic 16 GB iPhone 5c will sell for $99 on a two-year contract, and the whopping $549 unsubsidized. A quick look at both subsidized and unsubsidized prices of current Android and Windows Phone handsets is enough to gauge why Apple's shares slipped more than 5% yesterday. Let's see what handsets you can get at, above, or below the iPhone 5c price tag...

Apple is just retarded for those prices. I'll take anyone of those phones over the 5C.

The only real competition for iPhone 5C is HTC One mini and Nokia lumia 925. I have to agree with you about the off contract price but the on contract price is good.

Really well i would think the xperia zr is better competition for the 5c than the one mini phone arena is just bias the zr is the best mini phone on the market and that's a fact.

agree with you. zr is better than xperia z imo with longer battery life because it's only 720p but still easier to use and waterproof, not only water resistant

don't know why phonearena hates Samsung and sony so much. In what aspects iPhone 5C is better than Galaxy S3 and Xperia Z ?

Wow! Worse is a pretty strong word you should use terms like 'slightly better'. Either way I'd take the S3, the Z and the P6. I'm still not a fan of windows phone but if they get the full windows desktop version to work on the phone I'd definitely get one.

I prefer god , so I deleted my account and created a new one . Tried some names like fuxker.sunofabeach and moderators.fuxkoff but my accounts got banned a day after creation
The only Samsung device I like is Galaxy s2 and Galaxy s4 Google edition .

Better optimised OS, physical phone looks better and the App Store. You're welcome..

Yes, those Fisher Price colors sure do look better. Not only are they copying all the features from other operating systems, now they're copying Nokia's shells.

Wow, IOS 7 is not even live and you know it's better optimized. Ever tried IOS 7 beta? I did and it sucks.
And anyone of those phones look better than a 5c.
Appstore is a plus? lol some apps might be better on iphone, but the playstore is catching up quickly. Besides, appstore wont allow wifi sniffers, so that sucks.

wogh.. calm down boy. let see when ios7 comes out and you just tried beta version
catching up because to many phones running android os and will take more time and more update to optimize it

No one hates Sony. Infact I love Sony for creating xperia Z1 and the Z ultra. But then xperia Z is pathetic.

Xperia Z1 and ZU is basically a slightly better version of the Z but still utilises that ugly design and a poor screen...Sony=Bad
