Nokia took a jab at the iPhone 5c 8GB version announced today, comparing it to the Lumia 520, also an 8GB smartphone:

The joke is that while the 5c 8GB costs around whopping €530 (N121,000), the Lumia 520 costs less than €100 (it costs N19,999 here now). That is a difference in cost of €430 (N98,000) or more. Here in Nigeria, we say that the difference is clear. Both devices were launched last year (the 5c 8GB is just a version of the 5c), and both are dual-core processor devices.
If you had a choice between just these two smartphones, the iPhone 5c 8GB and the Lumia 520, which would you buy?
