    True. Might as well pay full retail ($650) for phones. It will save you big in the long run.

    Obvious fake, look at the connector, do you think Apple would go back to that type of connector?

    No man..i agree with you on the fact that subsidized iphones actually cost more.
    But the difference between the retina and older iphone displays is vast. I can tell the difference from a meter's distance, much like the majority..

    Hahaha.. Its the photo of the 3gs.. The phone being compared to the cheap iphone (if it gets made, which i highly doubt).
    Apple has been taking huge initiative to capture lower end markets, like those in india. But the approach is different. They're just not into making cheap things.

    Are you an idiot? Forcing them to support retina ans i5 resolutions means "no more low DPI apps and no more gaps above the status bar and below app's display area." It does not mean "doesn't work on non-retina devices." Apple was tired of lazy devs continuing to submit apps that make their newer devices look bad. It's as simple as that. These apps don't "screw over" their customers with non-retina devices because it has nothing to do with excluding them. Got it?

    iPhone 4S is $549 + tax and iPhone 4 is $450 + tax. That might be cheap for u not for me.

    Maybe it's free in your country. On Apple.com and in USA, iPhone 4 costs $450 + tax.

    You wish. iPhone 5 will still sell for $500+ when the next iPhone is released.

    Wikipedia:
    In Q4 2012, the iPhone 5 and iPhone 4S were the best-selling handsets with sales of 27.4 million (13 percent of smartphones worldwide) and 17.4 million units, respectively, with the Samsung Galaxy SIII in third with 15.4 million.

    They sold 45 million iPhone 5 & 4S in three months. There is no incentive for them to cut their prices.

    People who want a Samsung will buy a Samsung, whether the iPhone 5 is $199 or $0.99.
