After weeks of leaks and speculation, the iPhone 5c is finally here. Apple`s colorful new lower-cost handset slots below the iPhone 5s flagship and ships with iOS 7. This is the first time the company`s launched two new iPhones simultaneously. The 5c replaces the iPhone 5 in the middle of the lineup, and the 8GB iPhone 4s is now available free on contract. Unlike years past, the iPhone 5 doesn`t carry on as a second-tier device -- it`s just gone....
Overall User Rating (4.2 Out of 5 based on 2,093 ratings)
Overall: To start with, this review is probably dangerously close to sounding like a Apple hater review. Truth is, it isn't one and I own an iPad (I'm typing the review on this) so I do love Apple products.
I'm really not going to talk about specs, screen quality etc. All this you can get from tech sites like CNET, TechRadar etc.
What I will talk about is why this phone doesn't make sense for you.
Firstly, people who say this phone isn't plastic, it's polycarbonate.
They both are the same! Phones like the Galaxy S4, the HtC One X are all made out of this. But since then, the world has moved on to metals like steel and Aluminum.
Apple made this with plastic so that they can make it colorful.
Actually, if you look at Apple's iPod line, they too come in a range of colors, but are still made out of premium materials.
The screen has a ppi of over 300 which is good enough.
While it's true that you can't see pixels after a point, the ppi is important. It's effect can be felt while reading books, surfing the net or while trying to read small text. Since the iPhone already has a small screen, this is important.
The hardware is exactly the same as the iPhone 5. Seriously.
There is absolutely no change to the internals from last year except for a larger battery (but the difference is negligible). Which means no 64 bit processing or anything fancy.
This phone makes more sense in the US where it is available on contract for $99 which is much cheaper than the average contract price of around $199 to $399
I only want an iPhone.
If you could afford the 5S but you wanted this because of the colours, just please don't. The 5S is superior in everyday imaginable (expect for the screen)
I can't afford the 5S
But the iPhone 5 instead! Seriously, with all other hardware being almost the same and with a better build you couldn't really go wrong with it.
If all you want is an iOS device for apps and stuff you can try out an iPod or an iPad mini (which is definitely one of the best tablets and better than last year's iPad mini).
What are the other options:
The Android phone which gives you a experience which is most similar to iOS is the HTC One. It too has a premium build, a simpler interface when compared to Samsung's TouchWiz. They are also improving on their update cycle. The One is getting Android Kitkat from January.
Samsung Galaxy S4, iPhone 5&5S, Htc One, Nexus 5, LG G2, Sony Xperia Z1, nokia Lumia 1520,925.
