Apple iPhone 5c Features

The iPhone 5c serves as the mid-range replacement model for the iPhone 5 in 2013. Internally, both handsets are almost the same — save for a bigger battery, a better front-facing camera and TD-LTE 4G support on the iPhone 5c. But the major change is the exterior shell, which now comes in five bright and youthful colours (thus the 'c' in iPhone 5c, which stands for 'colours'). It comes in White, Pink, Yellow, Blue and Green. Except for these above-mentioned changes, the rest remains the same. Its got the same 4-inch 1136 x 640 pixel IPS panel as the iPhone 5 and even the flagship iPhone 5s. It is powered by the A6 chip, has an 8 megapixel camera with f/2.4 aperture and a single LED flash. It comes with an aptly colourful and youthful-looking iOS 7 operating system. There are 16GB and 32GB of internal memory options too. This is the cheapest option with 8GB of internal memory.

After the iPhone 5C, Apple's latest phones have been the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus.

The price at which it was introduced it was a very likeable device. Super VFM for Rs 20,000 (come-on, its an iPhone). Got this for my mom a couple of years back and works just fine even today. I love the colours (got a green one). Today it may be a little too much to pay 20,000 for it, perhaps look for an iPhone 5s on discount. But the 5c had it been introduced at a better price in the first place had serious potential to steal marketshare in India. Giving it a 3 star, because... well it's 2016.
