The iPhone 5c is the all new mobile device created by apple. Described as a lower costing iPhone, does remain above the standard which apple have set for a phone since the Steve jobs era?

First of all, let me just say, in this review, we will not be talking about the phones software, iOS7, as we have covered that in a video anyway for an iPhone 4, and seeing as it the same, there would be no point in repeating ourselves.

Now a lot of you may have heard the new iPhone is a cheaper iPhone 5, whcih would be correct, however, what you should not confuse this with is that its a cheap iPhone. In a good way that is, as many people may have been led to believe due to the different casing, its not as much as a quality product, which we can confirm is wrong!

The first thing your going to notice about the iPhone 5c is the varied colour pallet available for your device, there is a choice of five colours: white, pink, yellow, blue and lime green- to which I picked white, to chose from. They all look great, and each potential owner will be able to relate themselves to one of them. With regards to the build materials, its a strong and robust plastic shell, which you can tell, is quality enough to take more of a beating and remain unscared rather then the previous glass backs on older iPhones. The new plastic casing does come at a cost however, and not money wise. The iPhone 5C is 9mm thick and weighs 132g, while the iPhone 5 is 7.6mm and weighs just 112g. So if you really need a lighter device, stray away.

The handset itself is built around a steel frame. The frame is then laser-welded to the polycarbonate outer casing. This ensures a compact product that will remain reliable.

The iPhone 5C uses exactly the same display setup as the iPhone 5 –– a 4-inch 640×1136 pixel IPS LCD panel with a pixel density of 326 ppi, whilst again keeping the same 4 inch display shared by the 5 and 5s.

The iPhone 5C also uses the same A6 processor as the iPhone 5 –– two 32-bit ARM CPU cores based on Apple’s custom “Swift” architecture –– and the same amount of RAM, too – 1GB of DDR2. In simple mans speak, its the same as the iPhone 5!

The iPhone 5C has a slightly larger capacity battery (1510 mAH) than the 5. It’s not quite as big as the one inside the iPhone 5S (1560 mAh) but it does make a difference.

All this together, without mentioning the incredible iOS7, makes this phone an incredible buy, pick it up now!
