Low-Cost iPhone

You know how trendy fashionable stuff are almost always more expensive than normal plain items? Make sense right? You want to follow the trend, then you pay a premium for it.

So when news came that the new Apple’s iPhone 5C will go on sale in Singapore for $848, $988 for a top-end model, I wasn’t hardly surprised. However Singaporeans are upset about the prices because the new model of iPhone was marketed as low-cost iPhone.

I am greatly bemused by these Singaporeans. I mean the term “low-cost iPhone” is an oxymoron. I have a suggestion; if you so unhappy about the prices, then don’t buy the new model! Is there a shortage of hand-phone models on the market right now? No! And what’s more is that if enough of you don’t buy it, Apple may lower the price in the future.

Simple right? Don’t need to get upset over it, just don’t buy it. What? You need the iPhone immediately? Then my friend, you have no one to blame but yourself. Suck it up and pay!
