Apple’s new “low-cost” iPhone model is failing to find a place in the competitive tier of the smartphone market due to its limited storage space.
TechRadar’s Gary Marshall expressed his feelings on the awkward little 8GB brother of the flagship iPhone range.
“The latest iPhone 5C may be 10% cheaper, but it’s 90% less useful unless you intend to stream absolutely everything, or use it for absolutely nothing.”
Marshall explained that while you may save some money, you’re frustrations will more than make up for it.
“A slightly cheaper phone may seem like a good idea, but you’ll pay the money you saved again and again in time and tears.
“Unlike computers and rival firms’ devices, whose storage you can expand, if you buy a too-small iOS device there’s no way to fix your mistake. At a time when even 16GB feels awfully stingy, opting for an 8GB smartphone is a decision you’re likely to regret.”
If Marshall’s gripes haven’t put you off, the iPhone 5C is available from South African network outlets.
