Apple IPhone 5C 8GB Review

iPhone 5c model was first released by Apple Inc. together with another Apple’s flagship, iPhone 5s, back in 2013. It is a cheaper version of iPhone 5 that offers similar features with an additional selection of colours — blue, yellow, green, white and pink. Since it is offered at a lower price than its bigger brother, the 5c model is targeted more towards the mid-range market to compete with other Android smartphones like Motorola Moto X and Samsung Galaxy 4.

 

Despite the lower price, this Apple smartphone does not compromise any of Apple’s advanced features. As a matter of fact, it has a fast performance (what with the preinstalled iOS 7) and long battery life. Initially, Apple provides several flash storage options — 16GB and 32GB — but as of earlier this year, only iPhone 5c 8GB is available to the public. It is in line with the releases of Apple’s new smartphones, iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 plus. Plus, with the built-in and rechargeable lithium-ion battery, iPhone 5c 8GB provides longer operating life. It can go up to 10 hours of 3G and Wi-Fi connection, a stand-by mode of 250 hours and up to 40 hours of continuous audio playbacks. Impressive, isn’t it? Apple iPhone 5c 8GB model comes with a Dual-Core 1.3GHz Apple A6 processor and has a 4-inch Retina display screen with a resolution of 1136 x 640 pixels.

 

With such processor and pixels, this colourful iPhone is very fast and has a vibrant and colour-rich screen. In terms of the performance, we can see that there is not much difference than other high-end iPhones. However, when it comes to the build, the 5c model has a totally different material. Besides than the wider colour options (iPhone usually comes in two or three exclusive colours like black, white or gold) iPhone 5c is using plastic as its casing. It makes this Apple smartphone slightly heavier at 132gm. The plastic body and heavier mass gives you more grip of the phone and allows you to hold it firmly and comfortably in your hand. Besides than the cheerful exterior and faster performance, we can also see improvements in its camera. With an 8-megapixel rear camera and 1.2-megapixel FaceTime camera that come with LED flashlight, the camera on this model has a better low-light-sensitivity. The images produced are well-balanced and highly crisp!

 

This is not a surprise as Apple smartphones have always been known for its high-quality images. Apple iPhone 5c 8GB model, which is made available in 2014, has similar interface and ports. It retains its minimalist concept by offering a single home button on the front side, volume control buttons on the left side and a lock/power button at the top of the body. However, it also has improved its antenna capacity by offering a brand-new LTE antenna which provides better signal and cater to more international carriers. Indeed, the innovative company of Apple Inc. has put thorough thoughts in providing an option to the audiences in the mid-range market.

 

With a reduced price and credible performance, the 5c model can satisfy any users who wish to pay lower than the original premium’s price. They can still have access to a fast iOS, top-notch Apple apps and high-quality 4-inch screen. Plus, despite its plastic material, the solid and colourful body still gives the phone a sleek, exclusive look and feel!

  • The Good :
    Slightly lower price, longer battery hours, improved FaceTime camera, fast iOS
  • The Bad :
    Limited storage capacity at 8GB, still expensive compared to other mid-range Android smartphones
Our score:
4 / 5
