US CARRIER AVAILABILITY

Pros

  • Small dimensions (4.90 x 2.33 x 0.35 inches)

Cons

  • Low pixel density screen (326 ppi)

Description

The iPhone 5c replaces the iPhone 5 in the Apple stable, inheriting its internals, like the A6 processor, 4" screen and 8 MP camera, but wraps them up in "unapologetically plastic" candy chassis that can be mixed and matched in many colors with the new slotted cases. It is Apple's first take at the upper mid-range concept, and runs the newest iOS 7 without a hitch.
