It's not a trap. It's another option.
If somebody needs more, then they have the choice of buying the phone with more storage space. Who are you to decide that 8GB is not enough? It may not be enough for you, but it is certainly adequate for a certain segment of users.
The greedy ones are the whining cheapskates who expects Apple to follow everybody else's lead, and sell junky products for dirt cheap.
I'm astounded by the number of people who think that Apple builds phones just for them.
Dudes... Yes the s4 sucks, etc. But who cares? The fact is that the 8gb option of the 5c is just a trap made by a greedy company.
The OS uses 3gb, 2 are needed for updates. That leaves 3gb.
In what world is that enough? 3 gb? That's fucking pathetic and a crappy move. A few photos of that awesome camera, few videos, 1 good game and that's it.
That's a bad iPhone.
Apple has everything to use 64gb as minimum. But no, gotta be greedy.
Of course, the usual delusionals who will came defending everything and vomiting a mystical 50 per cent market share in a country where most phones are close to free and contracts are the norm, while ignoring the sad 10 per cent marker share worldwide, will also irrational talking about "who needs it".
For them : shut up. It's about having a better phone, just like with better cameras, screens, etc.
It's worth bearing in mind that Apple probably has access to a lot more user information than you.
They know which demographics buy lots of apps, music and videos, and which demographics just want two or three apps and bit of occasional surfing.
