Summary: A pesar de los que muchos podríamos haber pensado, el iPhone 5C no es un salto de mejora en estos terminales Apple, aunque, tampoco es un paso atrás. Por otro lado, lo importante es que cumple con todo lo que deseamos encontrar en un iPhone, tiene una cámara decente, su diseño en colores llamativos con carcasas de policarbonato han sido una sensación y, consideramos que justifica su compra, más no su precio que es un tanto elevado.
Summary: On its own merits, the iPhone 5c is a wonderful phone. If you’re not fussed about large screens or the awesome tinkering-powers of Android, you’ll love its cheery design, seamless software and plastic fantastic build. You’d really have to love its pastel colouring however to pick the iPhone 5c over the 5s, with the price difference spread over two years on most contracts.
Summary: The iPhone 5c is not a wholly new product, but a successful reworking of a still-excellent smartphone. Apple will find success with the product by marketing the 5c to colour-conscious youth and those who don’t need the top of the line features or specs. With the best mobile ecosystem out there, including apps, movies, books and music, and one of the most consistently high-quality cameras on a smartphone, the iPhone 5c is worth considering.
Pros: This is very much an iPhone 5 in a new suit. Being available in five colours — white, pink, blue, green and yellow — is the first clue that the iPhone 5c is the new iPod touch. That it is “unapologetically plastic” doesn’t tell the whole story, though, because like Motorola and Nokia, Apple has managed to turn the material into something versatile and desirable. While glossy, the iPhone 5c feels compact and comfortable in the hand, and does not slip or attract fingerp...
Cons: Let’s talk price for a second. The iPhone 5c is not a cheap iPhone, nor is it an inexpensive smartphone in general. You’re still going to pay over $200 for the 32GB model — in my opinion the only one worth considering — which is currently $30 more than the LG G2, and $100 more than the HTC One. Let’s also talk about whether the iPhone 5c is a better phone than a discounted iPhone 5 at the same price. The plastic build is good, no doubt, but it’s not an improvement ove...
Summary: 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 would be.
Pros: Attractive, colourful design; Easy to use iOS 7 software; Enough power for most tasks; Decent battery life.
Cons: Top-end 5S is not much more expensive; Same size and resolution as previous models; Camera struggles in low light.
Summary: La clave del éxito del iPhone 5C radicaba en su precio, que ya sabemos que es de 599 euros en Europa (libre) en su versión de 16 GB y 699 euros el de 32 GB. Habrá que esperar a las ofertas de las operadoras de telefonía móvil, aunque no parece que vaya a producirse sorpresa alguna. Partimos, por tanto, de un punto muy negativo y casi insalvable: estamos ante un iPhone 5 con diseño en plástico, con el mismo precio y un año de retraso.
Pros: Diseño, Buen rendimiento general, Precios subvencionados
Cons: Acabados de plastico, Precio libre demasiado elevado, Supone un paso atrás
Summary: iPhone 5C is colorful and not cheap. Indeed it has lower specs versus the iPhone 5S but it will have a very different look and feel and price to appeal to a wider range of people. This is still top end engineering and with the latest operating system and is even better than the current iPhone 5.
Pros: Sleek and colorful design with improved specs and iOS 7 and a vey good size.
Summary: The iPhone 5C is a great $99 phone that basically replicates the well-reviewed iPhone 5 in a more colorful case.
Pros: The iPhone 5C is available for $99 or less on contract, and in five bright colors. Compared with the 2012 iPhone 5, it’s got more widely compatible global LTE coverage, an upgraded front-facing camera, and slightly better battery life.
Cons: This phone is 2012 tech dressed up in a brighter package for 2013; the four-inch Retina Display feels small compared with most Android phones.
Excerpt: Apple took the wind out of a lot of sails when it unveiled the iPhone 5c earlier this month. It’s not that the device itself was disappointing — quite the contrary, in fact. Apple’s new iPhone 5c is exactly what we were expecting it to be after months of rumors and leaked parts. In a nutshell, it’s an iPhone 5 wrapped in a new plastic shell that comes in five bright new colors. But of course there is much more to Apple’s colorful new smartphone than meets the eye.
