iPhone 5c 16GB Reviews


"After a week with the 5c, it’s clear this is destined to be the bigger seller of the two - while the 5s is a technical powerhouse with an eye wateringly good technical spec, the 5c is just unashamedly fun - and in an age most smartphones look pretty much the same, it seems Apple has found a way to c..."

"Given the choice, there are only a few things we'd tweak. We're happy with the iPhone 5c in terms of performance and battery life, but we're longing for a better camera and a larger screen."

"New in the iPhone 5c is the FaceTime camera, which improves over the iPhone 5′s front-facing shooter with larger individual pixels and better backside illumination, all of which adds up to better low-light capture. The effect is immediate when you’re using FaceTime or other video chat services, sinc..."

"It’s a screen we admire on the iPhone 5 and nothing has changed here. As you’d expect with such a high resolution on such a small screen, text is extremely crisp and easy to read.

"This time around you get a slightly higher battery capacity that promises to deliver 10 hours rather than 8 hours when talking on 3G. We found battery life was good and delivered a full day's use on a single charge. "

"All the keys are easy enough to reach when holding the iPhone 5C in one hand, but thanks to the elongated nature of the device since Apple bumped the screen size up from 3.5 inches to 4 you need to stretch your fingers that extra bit to reach the power/lock button."

"Safari now defaults to full-screen mode, making the most of the iPhone’s 4-inch display, while there’s a new tab view to streamline navigation between open pages. The address and search boxes have been unified into a single field. We’re particularly pleased with the new Shared Links view, which grab..."
