iPhone 5c Review

mobilesyrup.com
9 May 2014
  • 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...

Review Apple iPhone 5c Smartphone

Notebookcheck
8 October 2013
  • Summary: Colorful new world. The iPhone 5c has arrived - it is 100 Euros (~$135) cheaper than the new iPhone 5s, comes with a plastic case and is available in a variety of different colors. The innards are basically those of an iPhone 5. So it's neither a true bargain, nor a truly innovative device - but can Apple's new "inexpensive" smartphone still make a compelling case for itself? And what about the new operating system, iOS 7?
  • Pros: Great build quality, Wide selection of well attuned accessories, Intuitive, beautiful operating system, Decent camera, Impressively precise GPS module, Low emissions and low power consumption, Still fast enough for all current apps, Great Retina display..., Apple's build quality is just as great as always, despite of the iPhone 5c's lower price tag.
  • Cons: ... but with a low non-HD resolution, Barely any cheaper than the iPhone 5s, Small phone with a tiny screen size (compared to the competitors), No 64-bit support, Performance levels not quite high-end, A slightly higher-resolution display (at least 720p) would be nice by now. In the future, some users might not be too fond about the missing 64-bit support.

  • Excerpt: The Good Good "hand feel" - Tried and true iPhone 5 hardware - Slightly boosted battery over predecessor The Bad No significant improvements over iPhone 5 - $199 32GB version? Get the iPhone 5s instead For the last several years, with the introduction of a new iPhone, the replaced model or models shift down to fill lower spots on the ecosystem. This year, Cook and company out of Cupertino tried something different.
  • Pros: Good "hand feel" - Tried and true iPhone 5 hardware - Slightly boosted battery over predecessor

Apple iPhone 5c Review

Phone Arena
24 September 2013
  • Conclusion: You could spend $200 to pick up that powerhouse in the Apple iPhone 5s (on contract), but if you’re content about using a GOOD performing smartphone that rivals some of the other flagship devices out there, while paying half as much out of your pocket, the iPhone 5c is undoubtedly an option that should be firmly be in contention in your mind.
  • Pros: Color variety with its design, Solid build quality for a plastic phone, Snappy performance
  • Cons: No 64GB option

  • Excerpt: When we say ?Apple?, we frame a metal cased chassis with a half-eaten apple logo in our mind. But this time, it has something different and absolutely dissimilar to its as usual looks. The recent buzz maker, Apple iPhone 5C is now out of its armor and ready to be on the palms of folks looking for mid-range phones. It has been just a few days from the date of its actual launch in the market. In fact, many places are even waiting for the model to come in store of them.

iPhone 5c review

Macworld UK
24 September 2013
  • Excerpt: The iPhone 5c is Apple's mid-range iPhone . It's colourful, slightly cheaper than the iPhone 5s , and 'unashamedly plastic,' according to Apple. But, as the iPhone 5c nears its first birthday, should you buy it? We revisit our iPhone 5c review to determine whether it's worth buying.
  • Pros: This iPhone feels great to hold, There's great choice of colours to suit any personality, Cheaper than iPhone 5S
  • Cons: Colours won't be to everyone's taste, Not as cheap as expected, No Touch ID fingerprint sensor, Almost one year old

  • Summary: The iPhone 5C is the second of two iPhones released by Apple this year and proves that plastic doesn’t have to equate with lower quality. When the iPhone 5C was unveiled it was described as being “unapologetically plastic”. But the second we held it in our hand for this iPhone 5C review it didn’t feel cheap. In fact it is surprisingly high quality. It’s actually made of colourful polycarbonate that’s bright and glossy and feels solid in your hand.
