There have been a lot of rumors about the iPhone 5c’s performance in various markets around the world. Prior to its release, it was believed that the low cost smartphone would do particularly well in markets such as China and India. However, that didn’t turn out to be true, because the iPhone 5c didn’t turn out to be as low cost as everyone thought it might be. As a result, iPhone 5c sales in those particular markets lagged behind the iPhone 5s, which was an instant hit around the world. Even in India, the iPhone 5s sold out in a couple of days after its launch.
Things seem to have picked up for the “unapologetically plastic” iPhone though. According to local media reports, the iPhone 5c is now outselling Galaxy S4 in the country, this piece of information comes from retailers based in India. This doesn’t come as a surprise though. Apple made a move recently which it should have perhaps made from the get go. It partnered with retailers to launch a smartphone trade-in program through which $200 minimum was being offered to customers who traded their existing smartphones for an iPhone 5c or an iPhone 4S. Retailers claim that iPhone sales have tripled after the trade in program was launched, and that now the iPhone 5s and the iPhone 5c both are outselling Samsung’s flagship smartphone in India.
