Apple starts selling the 8GB iPhone 5c across 11 European countries

Apple starts selling the 8GB iPhone 5c across 11 European countries

While the colorful iPhone 5c is hardly Apple's hottest-selling smartphone ever, it has its niche of fans across the globe. And now, said niche will be expanding within a number of European countries. Residents of the Netherlands, Italy, Belgium, Sweden, Poland, Czech Republic, Ireland, Portugal, Austria, Spain, Norway can get the 8GB variant from Apple's local online and physical stores.



The 8GB version is the iPhone 8c's cheapest variant, although it still takes a considerable weight off your wallet. When Apple launched it in the UK last month, it put a price of $717 (£429) on its tag. Not especially compelling, considering the 16GB version costs just $67 (£40) more. But that's only our objective opinion. Apple fans have their own, and we're perfectly fine with it.



Also, if you are hoping for the 8GB iPhone 5c to reach the US, you might be down on your luck, as Apple thinks the popularity of subsidized smartphone doesn't warrant putting this model on the market. You can still gaze at its unmistakably plastic vista, though.

You must be really stupid to buy one of these, seriously, it's way more than a minimum wage in Portugal. The Z1, M7 and S4 at least worth some more.

The Z1 compact is way better then any iPhone. So is the Galaxy S4.

In Bulgaria you can buy 2 Galaxy S3's and still have ~140$ left instead of the 5C 16GB model

But the 5C is faster , smoother , better camera , runs the latest version of the OS. Overall a better phone.

overpriced and bad design. who will buy 5c when s3 is more than 2 times cheaper. even z1 compact is cheaper which is better in every way(except os updates, but who cares) and many phones are cheaper than 5c which are faster, smoother, better camera and much better specs.

Apple calculation of more internal storage +8GB = $67 +16GB = $100+ +32GB = $250+ Not a single fxxx should be given to this BS

8gb, after the OS and preinstalled apps, what you're left with...ask yourself do you even need a smartphone.
