Apple iPhone 5C
The iPhone 5C replaces the iPhone 5 with nearly identical tech specs, a plastic-based exterior and 5 color choices, a first in the iPhone family. The 5C features the same 4" Retina display, A6 CPU, 8-megapixel rear iSight camera, a new front-facing FaceTime HD camera with better low light support, dual-band Wi-Fi a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, a higher capacity battery and support for more LTE bands.
Essentially the same phone inside as the iPhone 5.
Lots more LTE band support.
New design, colourful.
Available for $99 or less on contract.
Slightly better battery life.
Still quite pricey outright.
Could miss out on some apps or app features designed for 64-bit iPhone 5s.
The four-inch Retina Display feels small compared with most Android phones.

All in all the iPhone 5C is a pretty impressive phone. It has a top flight screen and solid specs, plus it’s one of the more affordable ways to get your hands on iOS 7 and Siri. However it’s not that affordable as it starts at around...80

The iPhone 5c puts a colorful twist on the excellent phone we know and love, but the price point isn’t appealing enough to shrug off the powerful iPhone 5s.80

My other general bit of advice is that you always go with the best technology you can afford. In this case, it's the iPhone 5s. If you're an iPhone 4s owner, that's absolutely the route you should go. Because the iPhone 5c is basically just...-

The Apple iPhone 5c is a good smartphone. It has a pleasant design that's nice to use and handle, an excellent screen and good general performances. However, it's hard to recommend this repainted iPhone 5 over the higher-end iPhone 5s which,...80

Those who have backed away from one of the current iPhones due to their premium price points of 699 to 899 Euros (~$948 to ~$1220) may be glad to hear that the iPhone 5c is at least somewhat more affordable . This may not be enough to gain a strong...90

Its colourful, pocket-friendly body and easy to use software makes the iPhone 5C a good choice for smart phone novices, but with only a small price gap between this and the considerably more powerful 5S, the 5C isn't the budget iPhone we hoped it...70

The iPhone 5C isn't as exciting a handset as the 5S by any means. With the iPhone 5 now deleted, it is the replacement for that phone. However, existing iPhone 5 owners would be ill-advised to upgrade as the differences aren't huge and you can...70

The iPhone has become somewhat synonymous with quality, it’s seen by some as the ultimate status symbol. I’ve never bought into that idea, almost resisting it, just because rather than by choice. But now and again I do like to see how the...-

The iPhone 5c is a brilliant product in terms of marketing. It’s the cheaper model without being last year’s model. This is the first time Apple has introduced two iPhones at once, and it was a smart move. The iPhone 5c seems fresh and is...80
