Apple iPhone 5C Outshines Samsung Galaxy S4's Sales in India: Specs Compared


Apple has started showing its signs of popularity among the Indians. The new line-up, iPhone 5S and 5C are now making its makers proud with the improvement in their sales in India. Moreover, iPhone 5S did quite well, compared to the cheaper iPhone 5C in the beginning. Perhaps the iPhone 5S did cannibalize its cheaper variant iPhone 5C's sales to some extent at the same time.

However, now the reports from most of the Indian sites suggest that the iPhone 5C which was initially close to failing in the market, is now resurrected in the Indian market. In fact, if it is actually doing better, the Apple iPhone 5C and 4S exchange offer which provided customers worth Rs 13,000 discount on the device, should be credited first. The offer was launched couple of weeks ago in India.

Moreover, it is being reported that the device is, in fact, selling better than the Samsung's popular Galaxy S4 handset.

Reportedly, Rajesh Kumar, a manager at a multi-brand electronic store said, "Samsung Electronics banks on its display and compatibility, while Apple believes in quality and not quantity." He further continued, "This month we had 10 units of both Galaxy S4 and iPhone 5C. Surprisingly, I have no iPhone 5C or iPhone 5S left, while there are three Galaxy S4 smartphones still available."

Since the rival Samsung has always been in the way of Apple in India, here is a great time to compare the iPhone 5C and Galaxy S4. Take a look in the slider below:
