iPhone 5c is an attempt by Apple to include the younger population and common man in its customer base. The price of this phone is much lower than the other Apple counterparts. This reduction in price has been achieved by Apple by changing the customary aluminum and glass body to a polycarbonate one. iPhone 5c comes in 5 colors pink, yellow, green, white and blue which are all very bright and pleasing to look at. The younger generation in Pakistan has really lapped up this colorful offering by Apple.
The phone has the same 4inch retina display as the costlier iPhone 5 and manages to have the same depth of colors and multiple viewing angles as its costlier sibling. The battery is a little bigger which contributes to the slightly chunkier look of the phone but that also translates to a longer period of use without rushing for the charger. The phone is still a slick 9mm thick which makes it easy to handle and very pocket able.
Like any other Apple phone the iPhone 5c also has 2 great cameras. Both the rear 8MP camera and the front 1.2MP camera are capable of taking decent pictures even in low lit conditions. An Apple A6 chipset ensures smooth performance while the dual-core 1.3 GHz Swift CPU is just that swift as a gazelle and capable of handling the most demanding of users with ease. A Li-Po 1510mAh battery provides 10hours of talk time and 40 hours of music play. This is a great phone for the Apple admirer with a lower budget.
