If you hold the iPhone 5 in one hand and the 5c in the other, chances are very less that you will spot some differences between the two devices. Superficially, the iPhone 5c looks like a 5 with a new dress on. The developers seem to have taken the errors the iPhone 5 had into serious considerations and have rectified them in this one. The premium plastic finish gives this phone a classy look and allows users to feel good when they hold the phone. This is not just a snappy looking phone that will crack if dropped: it is a fantastic creation that Apple has been able to pull off. The high-quality plastic with the glossy finish makes it look sturdy and, except for the colours that are a dead giveaway, nothing about the phone speaks of being dainty and delicate. Even adorned in a pristine white sheath, this phone is more reminiscent of a wizened old pro than an aspiring little ballerina in a lacy white tutu!
Looking at the iPhone 5S’s display, it seems like people at Apple are happy with the way the iPhones offer visual quality. There are no upgrades in terms of the screen size and visuals do appear in the same way it used to in the 5. The screen measures 4 inches and is powered by retina display. It offers a resolution of 1136x640p and has a pixel per inch ration of 326ppi. The images appear crisp and sharp as usual and retain the same high quality even when they are zoomed in. With a display quality as stunning as ever, you won’t realize that this white creation is capable of stunning visuals.
Apple has not done anything with the device’s camera, except for a few minor changes in its features. The iSight camera still has that 8MP lens but a larger aperture at f/2.4. The Facetime camera is the same with a 1.2MP lens. It supports 720p and is now more sensitive to low light. One of the additions is the inclusion of another LED flash. The dual LED flashes recognize the ambient colour temperature and determine the intensity at which each LED has to flash in order to reproduce the colours in the photographed image. This makes the captured images look more vivid and natural. Videos can be recorded at 1080p, and in MPEG-4 format. The microphone is sensitive to minute sounds as well.
Technical specifications get a major boost in this iteration. Apple has included the all-new and powerful dual-core 64-bit A7 processor which brings mobile computing closer to that of computers. At 1.3GHz clock speed, along with a GB of RAM, the device handles multi-tasking and hardcore gaming with ease. It is not only ultra-fast, but smooth in its transitions and handling apps as well. Games appear stunning and the phone manages to deliver a visual appeal that is equal to those of consoles. Another impressive addition is the inclusion of the M7 processor which deals with all the motion-capture data. This helps in easing of the main processor and lends support in increasing the battery life of the device as well.
The device comes with an internal storage capacity of 8 GB. There is no option to include an external memory and users have to restrict the amount of storage to that much. Of course, the 16 GB and 32 GB variants are also available, but for someone who doesn’t really care about storage that much, this phone is the perfect solution.
The iPhone 5c is indeed one of the most competitive smartphones from Apple, and more impressive than those prevalent in the market. Even without significant spec upgrades, the 5c has it all to become the best smartphone of the year.

It’s nice to see Apple break the routine and create a batch of colourful smartphones. The 5c is powered by A6 chip which is better than iPhone 4’s A5 chips. The UI (user-interface) is very swift, smooth and easy-going.
With the recent iOS 7 update, the user friendliness of iPhone 5c has increased quite dramatically. The body of the phone is not cheap plastic either as some people expected – it is polycarbonate just like Nokia’s Lumia series and is very robust.
The 8GB could put some users off, but it is the best priced 5c available some it might be worth the trade off.
