Apple iPhone 5C – 4G Phone

Breaking from tradition, Apple released two new iPhone models rather than just one in 2013. There was the main flagship phone (the iPhone 5S) and then there was a slightly more budget friendly model dubbed the iPhone 5C.

Apple iPhone 5C

The iPhone 5C is colourful and plastic, two words we never expected to use to describe an iPhone. However beyond that it’s every bit an iPhone, with roughly the same dimensions as the iPhone 5S and a 4 inch 640 x 1136 Retina display with a pixel density of 326 pixels per inch, which is just as good as the screen on the iPhone 5S.

It has the same A6 processor as the iPhone 5, so it should be quite powerful and it comes with either 16 or 32GB of built in storage (though as with other iPhone models there’s no micro SD card slot).

The iPhone 5C runs iOS 7 and has an 8 megapixel camera. That’s a lower megapixel count than most top end Android phones and it lacks the dual-LED True Tone flash of the iPhone 5S, but it’s still capable of taking good photos. It also has a secondary 1.2 megapixel front facing camera and can shoot 1080p video at 30fps.

The iPhone 5C has a 1507 mAh battery, which Apple claims can last up to 250 hours in standby or up to 10 hours for calls. It supports Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi, Ultrafast 3G and 4G LTE.

 

Apple iPhone 5C Release Date & Price

The iPhone 5C will be released on the 20th of September and be available in white, pink, yellow, blue or green. Prices for the handset SIM free start at £469 for the 16GB model. Despite supposedly being a budget option that actually puts it in line with the price of the Samsung Galaxy S4 and makes it more expensive than the HTC One.

On a 24 month 4G contract the iPhone 5C can be found from £46 per month on EE, with a £9.99 upfront cost and 10GB of monthly data. On O2 it’s available from £47 per month with 1GB of data and no upfront cost while on Vodafone it’s available from £47 per month with 4GB of data and no upfront cost.

Alternatively it’s also available on Ultrafast 3G from Three, with prices starting at £37 per month and a one off fee of £49 for a 24 month contract including unlimited data.
