Last year, Apple has launched its new mobile in the series of iPhone, the iPhone 5. This year, they have launched two handsets which are not just pocket friendly, but also carry features quite similar to and also better in some way as compared to their predecessor. They are the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C. Since the last couple of years, we have seen Apple introducing iPhones and then following it up by launching some others in a lower price range. Same is the case with iPhone 5C and 5S, successors to the iPhone 5. Here we shall be discussing particularly in detail about the iPhone 5C.

The iPhone 5C has a retina display screen of 4” with a resolution of 1136 X 640 pixels and a pixel density of 326 pixels per inch (ppi). Although the pixel density is low, it has been discovered that movies and games appear to be decent enough on this screen.
It has a brightness quotient of 505 lux, which is 100 lux more than the average brightness. Apart from this, it also boasts of very wide viewing angles and an excellent degree of visibility when stepped outdoors. It also possesses an impeccable trait of displaying colours just as they are without any sort of distortion.
Made up of plastic, the iPhone 5C doesn’t look cheap at all. In fact in a price range as low as $99, it looks good. It doesn’t at all give a plastic feel to the owner or even someone who is looking at it.
You might be thinking that will it last the period of the contract? Well then, the answer is yes, it will. It is actually made up of a glossy polycarbonate material- it also comprises of a steel frame which functions as an antenna. The colourful options available in this smartphone are certainly a plus point when it comes to choosing one for your kids or even for yourself if you are looking for a budget phone below $100.
All the colours in which the iPhone 5C is available are just fantastic- yellow, green, pink, blue and white. Apple also offers cases in these colours, each costing $29. The iPhone 5C has 3.5mm headphone jack, a lightning connector and one speaker port, all located on the bottom. The dimensions of the iPhone 5C are 4.9 X 2.33 X 0.35 inches and it weighs approximately 4.65 ounces.
When talking about the iPhone 5C, it comes to our notice that this smartphone has been given a very modern look as far as the interface is concerned. With animations and an array of visually appealing aesthetics, the iPhone 5C is a great relief from the stereotypes.
The iOS 7 has been given a great look and feel in this particular smartphones, breaking the monotony of the previously launched ones. The user interface also boasts of a newly defined notification centre and control centre. Connectivity features like Wi-Fi and airplane mode have been provided on the interface itself- so you don’t need to go to the settings page.
Apart from these, functions like adjusting screen brightness, flashlight function and music player have also been provided. Animated wallpapers have also been incorporated along with the interaction option using Accelerometer. A negative trademark of this interface is that the shortcut options cannot be customized- so you have to live on with the ones provided already.
Processor and Memory
The iPhone 5C comprises of a dual core 1.3GHz Apple A6 processor and 1GB of RAM, which is good enough for a smooth functionality. As far as the memory is concerned, the iPhone 5C is available in two storage options- 16GB and 32GB. The memory is not expandable- so choose the one which suits your needs and also make sure that you don’t try adding things which will not be accepted by the phone memory.
The iPhone 5C comes preinstalled with a Safari browser, which now has the option of viewing web pages on full screen mode. It also comprises of a new tab view and a search bar. It boasts of a 4G LTE connection, through which internet runs lightning fast and web pages are downloaded instantly. The iPhone 5C is available through four major carriers across the US. Apart from the 4G LTE connections, it also boasts of connectivity options like Bluetooth 4.0, dual-band 802.11 a/b/g/n Wi-Fi as well as sharing options through Airdrop.
The iPhone 5C comes with an 8 megapixel camera, which has some new exciting features as well. It has introduced the all new square photo mode-for those who love to click square pictures. It also provides you with the option to choose from a set of eight photo filters. The old features include the panorama picture option and HDR.
The camera also has an outstanding feature of a 1080 pixels HD video recording, which is actually at par excellence for a smartphone priced at just $99.
The battery life of the iPhone 5C is not considerably better than that of its predecessor, the iPhone 5. With a fully charged battery, the iPhone 5C runs only for a single day with normal usage. So if you are to play games and use apps now and then, make sure you carry your charging case with you or the battery will be drained out completely.
The iPhone 5C is one of the best smartphones in a price range below $100. The look is great, the feel is outstanding. But, on the contrary, this phone is not meant for hard-core gamers or social networkers. With the feel and look of the iPhone 5, the iPhone 5C gives you the option of buying it in a low price- that’s the best part about it.
