iPhone 5C

 

The most colourful iPhone ever, but is it any good? Our final verdict is in...

Excellent screen quality, Smooth, swish OS, Snappy camera

Quite expensive, Not a huge upgrade over an iPhone 5

iPhone 5c review

 

Is the Apple iPhone 5c the budget phone we thought it would be?

Colourful chassis ; iOS 7 looks incredible ; Improved battery life

Price-tag compared to rivals ; Smaller screen than rivals

Apple iPhone 5C hands on

 

Take a look at the long-awaited, much-rumoured "budget" iPhone 5C. A cheap iPhone, it is not, but it is indeed, as the rumours tipped, a plastic iPhone.

Apple iPhone 5C review

 

The C in iPhone 5C stands for colourful, and that's the experience Apple wants you to have with its plastic-backed reimagination of the earlier iPhone 5. The iPhone 5C is a lovely phone that is solid in its performance and playful it its approach. The...

Colourful, solid, iOS 7 on board, good camera

Virtually same as iPhone 5, still as expensive as iPhone 5 was, cases don't look considered

The iPhone 5C is a lovely phone that is solid in its performance and playful it its approach. The combination of the colourful exterior sits beautifully against the latest iOS 7 operating system and it's good to see Apple ditching the ode to faux...

iPhone 5c review

 

"Beautifully, unapologetically plastic". Yeah, right. But if you push on through the dodgy cases, colours and marketing, the new iPhone 5c is no slouch

An iPhone 5 for less ; iOS 7 lives up to the hype ; Excellent new camera app

Colour theming will alienate diehards ; Legibility issues with some fonts and icons ; Still too darn expensive

If you can overlook the cases, colours and marketing (and they’re big ifs), the 5c’s a powerful, smart package, with a great OS

Apple's iPhone 5C is official and we've grabbed one to have a quick play with, just to see how colourful it really is. The new phone which will replace

iPhone 5C review

 

It's a cheaper iPhone, not a cheap iPhone

Colourful options ; Smooth OS ; Decent battery life

Still high cost ; Doesn't feel premium ; Too similar to iPhone 5

While it's still an iPhone, it's not much more than 2012's device shoved in a plastic case - although iOS 8 really helps the cause.

Apple iPhone 5C review: Discontinued and no longer supported

 

Now discontinued, Apple ditches iPhone 5C software support with recent 10.3.2 iOS update

Our iPhone 5C review model was kindly provided by Three which sells all the current iPhone models.

Apple iPhone 5C review

 

Fast and responsive with a great operating system, but the iPhone 5S is better value and faster

iPhone 5C review: One year on

 

The iPhone 5C is essentially the iPhone 5 but with a colourful new coat. The five colour options match the theme of iOS 8 and are certainly bright. We like the white and blue models but we're not so keen on the pink, yellow and green.

The iPhone 5C is a nice smartphone. However, we just can't see the need for it in the first place, unless it was cheaper. It's too expensive for what is effectively an iPhone 5 in a plastic shell with minor changes in hardware. There are better and...
