The release of iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c in September last year marked a departure from Apple's usual strategy of releasing one new iPhone every a year. The launch of the new iPhone would be accompanied by the outgoing iPhone getting a price cut, and the one before that becoming free on a contract in certain markets. This approach served Apple well because the iPhone doesn't age as quickly as its Android counterparts, and even a generation-old iPhone competes favourably with most mid-range Android phones on performance, if not on price.

  • Phone With A Great OS But Not So Great Features..
    Manvendra Gupta (May 26, 2014) on Gadgets 360
    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.

    Nick Yonko (Oct 3, 2018) on Gadgets 360
    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.

  • WORTHLESS...NO OTHER WORD DESCRIBES IT
    nik nigam (May 23, 2014) on Gadgets 360
    It's absolutely worthless and fails to serve the purpose it was meant to serve...ie.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

  • Awesome buying experience and Awesome Phone
    sumeet sidhu (Jan 2, 2019) on Flipkart
    First i was too doubtful about buying such expensive phone on-line, i did lot of research about past experiences and support of online buying, then i made decision to go with flip-kart it was an awesome experience for me, packaging was good, all supplied accessories were original as promised, phone is 100% genuine, and also discounted price, less than apple store, i would highly recommend WS retail for buying any product from flip-kart About Apple I-Phone, lot of people say this is plastic apple product, but i want to mention all guys here that there is no other phone near to this phone, yes it is bit on higher price end, but the quality overrides price, if you hold apple iphone in your hand, you can not think of using any other smart phone available in market, except if you can afford to have an apple iphone. camera is best, HD video is too good, other smart phone features, specially touch interface is unbeatable

  • Iphone 5C
    Mahesh Grampurohit (Jun 2, 2019) on Flipkart
    Very good product and Flipkart takes good care to deliver electronic products much faster than they commit. Regarding iphone - - You feel good of the phone. - Experience is very good - Initially I wanted to order White but ended up with yellow, and the yellow is very nice - its milky yellow. - self guided instructions, no problems.

  • Awesome + Powerful + Hardy iPhone then others, No regret after buying
    Puneet Gupta on Flipkart
    This 5C yellow is my first iphone ever which i bought at a price of rs42000 with my hard earned money. this phones looks and feel awesome in the palms and its equally powerful. both the cameras are super in daylight and broadlight, issues are there at night. but can be managed as I am not a nightcrawler and digi cams can be used at nights. I never felt that i am working on 1.2 GHZ processor, make me feel working with 2-2.5 ghz, its really smooth. Call clarity is awesome but loudspeaker works well only in closed room. Facetime is a boon and works well(depends on the carrier as well. prefer Vodafone.) The only defect is has is that no expandable memory. As we can do the latest updates which are larger in size like 8.0(1.5 GB), also the internal memory gets reduced. so keep it till 7.1.2, its fine if you are using 16 GB model.
