  • Apple's iPhone 5c was the Number One Selling Smartphone in the U.K


    Out of all the iPhones previously launched, the iPhone 5c was criticized as being the worst one of all iPhones. But even though it was considered a joke in the technology industry, it was however in many countries reported as one of the top phones that were sold. According to Kantar World Panel, the iPhone 5c was the best selling phone in August in the UK. The iPhone 5c sold even more devices than the iPhone 5s. They stated:

    The iPhone 5c was the best selling phone in Britain in August with 8.9% share, outselling the flagship iPhone 5s with 7.6% and the Samsung Galaxy S5 with 6.0%.
    Kantar World Panel has reported that due to the success of the iPhone 5c, the Cupertino-based company’s decrease in sales of the iPhone was lower than years before. They also claimed that those who buy the 5c are uninterested in the newest mobile devices. With the success of the iPhone 6 lineup released recently, the iPhone 5c won’t stay number one in sales. Apple has reported that the recent iPhone 6 and 6 Plus sales made 10 million in the first three days of release. Kantar also claimed that approximately 4 million users have already upgraded to the iPhone 6 devices in the U.K.

      Pretty amazing. I guess it goes to show that taste and preference can really vary depending on where you are. What’s really outstanding is that the aged Apple phones outsold the newer Galaxy S5.

      FYI: Great Britain and the UK are not exactly the same. There’s England, Great Britain, which includes wales and Scotland, and then the UK that also includes Northern Ireland, IIRC.

      I live in a college town, and probably at least 1/3 of college students around have the 5c.

      Must be completely lying then...?

      Or just maybe you and the people you see every day aren't the only people in the country.

      Interesting. I bought the 5c instead of the 5s and am happy with it. My phone is always in a full protective case and there just isn't that much of a difference between the 2 IMO so I saved myself 100 bucks because I bought it outright.
