is this a joke or Cnet is just a bunch of idiots ?

It's a $100 handset showdown -- CNET compares Apple's iPhone 5C with Motorola and HTC's own Mini versions of their flagships, as well as the Nokia Lumia 520

The Lumia 520 is a respectable second-tier device that, at $99.99 on contract, goes for the same price as the iPhone 5C and the HTC One Mini. (The 520 also goes by Lumia 521 under T-Mobile, and costs $120.)

Lying and comparing $430-550 smartphones to the $100 L520
