      I sure will be keeping this one for some time!

      For years I have enjoyed models of iPhones which stick to the same shape, same specs and similar features. Aside from Software Updates, iPhones had become boring for me and many other people.

      However, when the iPhone 5C came around, I ditched my Samsung S3 and began to explore the realms of a whole new Apple.
      To start off with, the iPhone 5C is one of the sexiest models of phones I have seen in a long time. With a trendy plastic cover coupled with a decent sized screen for the non-phablet market, even without a phone case the 5C rolls with styke and trend. And, along with the combination of features that have come along from IOS 7 and above, the ordinary, boring, same-old-same iPhone has re-energised its market, as well as its consumers.

      With the assistance of new features, such as an easy access locked toolbar which can allow you to select simple features like the powerful torch and camera, the iPhone 5C doesn't lack on new update features, too.
      Not to mention it being physically sturdy compared to the iPhone 4S, as mine has suffered much damage and falls that would condone another phone to death. However, I would never recommend playing catch with your phone; is it really worth all that money IF something goes wrong?

      Here's a brief overview of the phone's specifications:
      Software:
      iOS (8.x, 7.x)
      Dimensions:
      4.90 x 2.33 x 0.35 inches (124.4 x 59.2 x 8.97 mm)
      Weight:
      4.66 oz (132 g)
      the average is 4.8 oz (137 g)
      Body material:
      Polycarbonate
      Physical size:
      4.0 inches
      Resolution:
      640 x 1136 pixels
      Pixel density:
      326 ppi
      Technology:
      IPS LCD
      Screen-to-body ratio:
      59.93 %
      Colors:
      16 777 216
      Touchscreen:
      Yes
      Features:
      Light sensor, Proximity sensor, Oleophobic coating
      System chip:
      Apple A6
      Processor:
      Dual core, 1300 MHz
      Graphics processor:
      Yes
      System memory:
      1016 MB RAM
      Built-in storage:
      32 GB
      Talk time (3G):
      10.00 hours
      the average is 15 h (892 min)
      Stand-by time (3G):
      10.4 days (250 hours)
      the average is 23 days (543 h)
      Capacity:
      1507 mAh
      Not user replaceable:
      Yes


      So all-in-all, this device is a significant improvement upon previous models of iPhone, and I would easily be recommending it to all I encounter.

      Disadvantages

      • "battery life"

      shocking battery life

      I got the iphone 5c as an upgrade frome the 4s and have to say i am increadably dissapointed. The battery life is shocking, the phone can be fully charged and sat in my pocket or on the side being unused for a few hours and when i return to check it, the battery is completely drained. Love the phone for everything else but the battery is awfull.

      Advantages

      • "More robust than other iPhones"
      • Colourful

      Disadvantages

      Very Sturdy for an iPhone!

      I wasn't originally a fan of touch screen phones and swore I would never go for one but in the end I succumbed when my Blackberry Curve just wasn't doing everything I wanted it to. I bought an iPhone 4 second hand thinking I could try it out to see if I could be converted. I was. When my Blackberry contract was up I looked into getting an iPhone 5 but was offered a 5C with a generous discount from Phones 4 U.

      I opted for the blue, I wanted the yellow but it was out of stock and I wanted to avoid pink as I have had a long line of pink phones! When it was new I really struggled to keep hold of it and it was so shiny and slippery but with age the grip has improved. I've had my 5c for over a year now and never used a case. I am very impressed with how sturdy this phone is as iPhone do have a reputation for cracked screens. I had to replace the screen and back glass twice on my iPhone 4 in the 8 months I had it but *touch wood* my 5C has survived many falls.

      Now for the downers. I took my 5C into the Apple Store when the charger cable failed within warranty and they replaced it with little question however a new cable has not solved all the problems and it is very temperamental with the position it needs to be in to actually receive a decent charge so it appears to be an issue with the port rather than the charger. Unfortunately it's now out of warranty. This is such a shame as I was hoping to keep my 5C past my contract as I was so happy with it's performance and I don't really want to part with it.

      Despite the above issue I would be very reluctant to leave Apple as I have seen the problems that my husband has had with various smart phones and they far worse than mine. I would perhaps look into getting it repaired as Apple products to seem to stand the test of time and usually outlive their contracts unlike my husband's long line of smart phones that never seem to see the full 2 years!

      Advantages

      • "Does everything "
      • "Modern looking "

      Disadvantages

      • "Low battery life "

      I love this phone

      I have always used Apple products for many reasons, the first being the look of their products. Their devices always look new and modern. The stylish look attracts me and makes me think it's worth the costly price. Apple products can be used to help you with most things.

      I got my first iphone in January of this year (12 months ago) and was in love from the second I saw it. I got my iphone 5c in white as I already own a white iPad and like the look of white electronics.

      The iphone 5c has a fantastic camera and is really quick compared to most other phones. This phone is helpful in many ways I can do pretty much everything on it. I can download apps, view maps, take pictures and videos and access internet too. I usually use wifi when using the internet as I am at home most of the time. When I'm out I am careful what 4g I use as it can go very quickly.

      The battery life on this phone isn't great, it doesn't last all day. I always end up taking my charger with me in my bag as I need to recharge it a few times throughout the day. I rely on my phone a lot to contact friends and to use for work.

      I would rate this song a 4/5 despite the battery life this phone is great. It has everything that a phone should have plus a lot more.

      Advantages

      • Practical
      • Colourful
      • "Latest Device"

      Disadvantages

      • "High price range"

      Modern and colourful yet still overpriced for what it is

      Albeit one of two latest released handsets (with its own unique design) to come from the Tech. giant Apple, many are questioning the price tag that comes attached. If you are lucky enough to have the handset offered to you a part of a contract package, there are still uncomfortable questions that many have raised. For years we have seen Apple dish out a new handset every 12 months, boasting to be better, more advanced and more stylish than the handset before. Most noticeably with this we have seen the retail cost of each generation of handset rise starkly, which undoubtably started to deter even some of the most hardcore Apple fans. In response to this, Apple not only launched their newest handset as of September 2014, but also the ''budget'' handset known as the 5C. The problem that many users have reported is that (in their opinion) there is still a hefty price to be paid for a handset that will undoubtedly become the ''older model'' within 12 months. It supposedly being the budget choice for those wanting one of the newest smartphones available on the market today, I would not be difficult to find many rival developers offering just as much technical capability at much more reasonable pricing. What is unique to this handset (with regard to Apple phones) is the new plastic backing which many will find appealing, especially with a (limited) choice of colours. However many have show their dismay that a handset still packing such a punch to your wallet, has reverted to the traditional and cheaper option of plastic rather than its much awed strengthened glass/metal casings of most of the previous models. The handset itself provides all the functionality that you would expect from a model of its generation. However the high price tag may suggest you look elsewhere and consider rival smartphones with just as much capability, but with a much more agreeable price

      Advantages

      • "Easy to use"

      Disadvantages

      • "Poor battery life"

      An easy to use good looking phone

      I am not really a fan of new technology as I find it stressful to learn the new products. My mobile phone contract had run out about 2 months before I got round to going in to the phone shop to get a new phone. My hesitance due to not wanting to change, but my old phone ( an LG phone) was playing up. I picked the iPhone 5c because I already had an ipad at home and so the learning would be minimal. In the shop I did actually prefer the look of the iPhone 4 because it is smaller but the shop assistant was very strong in saying the 5c is a better phone, I am easily convinced and so went with it. When I got my new phone home I was really excited. I especially liked the little box it came in, yes I am easily pleased! It''s really good how you can sync you iphone to your ipad. Syncing your devices it really essay to do and means asll the pictures you take on your phone automatically go to your ipad. I did find it annoying that iPhones have different sized SIM cards to regular phones. This meant that I had to spend a good long time typing all of my contacts list into my new phone. I''m sure there probably is an easier way to do it than that but I didn''t work it out. The battery life on the iPhone 5c is also disappointing. I have turned off the Bluetooth, locator setting and a few other bits and this has made as bit of a difference but I still find I need to charge my phone every day. I guess maybe the better a phone is, the more it can do, and so the more battery it uses.

      This phone is good phone to get

      This is my review for the fantastic iphone 5c in yellow with 32gb of storage in it. This iphone is made by the famous company apple which is notorious for producing stunning smart phone which look sleek and posh when they have been finalised. It is on 3G and 4G an I decided *my mum decided to get it me on 4G as a treat which was well worth it since 4G runs way faster than my wifi does. The 4G goes off when during phone calls which is annoying but that is for another review. i always get good service or signal on this phone which or may not be because of the mobile network service that I am on (EE). I have been told that the C in iphone 5C stands for cheap but I think it stands for colour since the iPhone 5c comes in a broad range of fascinating colours. The phone features a bright flash tool which is compulsory in the making of the stunning pictures that the iPhone captures in such clear detail.

        Recommend this to anyone

        After suffering for years with a blackberry, i decided to pay out the huge contract and buy myself an iphone - this turned out to be one of the best decisions I have made. I bought the white iphone 5c with 32gb and quite an allowing contract plan. I can do everything on this phone and because of this I find myself using my iPad and computer much less. It calls texts emails you can play games anything you want!! It is extremely good for cobstant on the go email checking and the battery life isn't great but still can last me a day without a recharge and I use it quite frequently. I can control anything on the go like my on line banking or even checking my Facebook, I was first worried about the plastic exterior but now I like it a lot and can be covered with a pretty case! Quite open to scratching so I would recommend a screen protector.
