In US, Canada and UK, 2-years plans are the majority of the market, while the rest of the world clearly prefers prepaid solutions, buying an unlocked smartphone. Choosing the iPhone 5C over the 5S with a contract can make sense, since you save 50%. (99$ vs 199$ for the 16GB models) But the unlocked iPhone 5C costs 599, while the iPhone 5S costs 699. Why someone should buy the 5C when with 100 more you can have a bombshell like the 5S? For the colors? Analysts have been talking for months about this iPhone 5C aimed for the prepaid market, a market that has been eaten by Android. I know well that Apple has never said that the iPhone 5C would have had the purpose to win back some of the prepaid market outside the US, Canada and UK. But I'm sincerely asking you: does Apple care about the HUGE prepaid market? It really seems it doesn't? I know that Apple doesn't care about marketshare and about making a low-cost iPhone, but I really believe that they could make a great mid-range iPhone at 350-400 and sell a lot. The iPad mini is a great product and it costs 329, the iPad Retina is a great product and it costs 479. Why pricing the iPhone 5C at 599? Please take this post as a sincere question for all you guys, not as a complaint of a disappointed user.
