iPhone 5c

Would we pay an extra $100 to pick up a 5s over a 5c and make use of its 64-bit A7 chip, M7 coprocessor, Touch ID sensor, and revised iSight camera? Probably. Regardless, there’s still lots to like about Apple’s iPhone 5c, notably its price, bigger battery as compared to the iPhone 5, and array of bright, colorful polycarbonate casings that include white, pink (shown), yellow, blue and green. Otherwise, its internals match its predecessor’s, which have served us well for the last 12 months and could easily continue to do so if we weren’t so obsessed with the latest and greatest.
