When Apple announced the iPhone 5C, a lot of people thought that current iPhones are now made affordable. But just how cheap are we talking about? Well I wouldn’t call the plastic iPhone cheap or affordable at the moment having a price of around Php28k in the local grey market.
Locally, the colorful iPhone 5C can be availed at Kimstore for Php28,180 which comes in white, blue, green, yellow, and pink. Widget City is also carrying the said device for Php28,500. If you buy it from Hong Kong, expect to pay around Php26,000 so it’s still not that cheap at all.
The iPhone 5C replaces the iPhone 5 in Apple’s stable. It’s very similar to the iPhone 5 in terms of specs with minor differences in the front-facing camera and the battery. Physically, you’ll get a less premium-looking iPhone but with more color options if that’s your thing.
Well, the iPhone 5C is still not within reach for a lot of people looking to get their hands on an iPhone. At that price, you’d rather want to get the iPhone 5 (if you can find one) or add some more cash and wait for the iPhone 5S.
