With mobile carriers AT&T and Sprint, the colorful iPhone 5c secured second place while the Galaxy S4 rested on third. In August, the Galaxy S4 was at first place with Sprint and second at AT&T.
T-Mobile and Verizon Wireless saw the Galaxy S4 as the second best-selling smartphone while the iPhone 5c ranked third. Although the Samsung device managed to beat the iPhone 5c, the Galaxy S4 previously held first place during August 2013 at both T-Mobile and Verizon Wireless.
"While there no denying that the iPhone 5c is a new handset, it isn't a flagship handset, and with so much attention focused on the iPhone 5s, does this make the iPhone 5c seems a lesser, inferior, second best purchase?" wrote ZDNet's Adrian Kingsley-Hughes, on whether the iPhone 5c might be a flop for the Cupertino-based organization.
He added the device's prices and color options as other reasons why the iPhone 5c hasn't resonated with consumers.
As Latinos Post reported, nine million units of the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c were sold during its first weekend on Sept. 20. Apple, however, didn't reveal specific numbers for the iPhone 5s or iPhone 5c, respectively. The nine million units for both phones were four million units more than the first-weekend sales of the iPhone 5 in September 2012, which sold 5 million units.
The sales for the latest Apple smartphones could see an increase worldwide as the iPhones are set to launch with prepaid wireless service Cricket in the U.S. on Oct. 25 along with over 30 countries including Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, French West Indies, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Macau, Malta, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Reunion Island, Romania, Russia, Slovakia, Slovenia, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, and Thailand.
