Phone With A Great OS But Not So Great Features..
By Manvendra Gupta | 26 May 2014
The thing that made me buy an Apple iPhone 5c is that it is made by apple and was the latest product available on the market at that time. I bought it mainly because of its OS which was the new iOS 7 and when I used it it was worth the money. But its RAM is 1GB and its less for that amount of money, whenever I tried to pay a Batman game or some game with high storage it would force close the app. Its processor is good and does multitasking fluently. And the camera is also good but I think its not so futuristic as iPhone 5s because apple is coming with new iPhones every year. Its battery is not so good it is still better than other iPhones except 5s. If its price was a little lower it would be worth the money. All the best choose wisely.

I disagree with many of the one star ratings. although i agree the battery could be better. but i find the phone to be a great value i bought mine used for $60 over a year ago and have had no problems with it. i can load up MP3 and video files from my computer with it no problem through itunes. and the camera is the same as the iphone 5s.

It's absolutely worthless and fails to serve the purpose it was meant to provide the apple experience in a low cost smartphone..the cheap plastic body with cheap colors impresses no one and it value for money absolutely zero as better,and more powerful android devices are available in morevariety and have more features than the 5c..sure it gives a good apple ios experience as the software is at par with that of the 5s but future software support is non-existent..speaking as an indian this phone is not a viable option as everything is very costly starting from the phone itself to its accessories and software..definitely not an option for students and youngsters
