if your on a tight budget and needs a really good phone that ranges around 120$ on brand new at 2016 this is a really good one for 16gb open line
even tough can buy this one for a refurbish or 2nd hand device for a cheaper price you won't regret it, unless its defective!
iphone 5c released on 2013 it still really good at 2016 as a normal smartphone
definitely worth of your every penny!
I bought my iPhone 5c 16gb for 75$ 2nd hand and it is currently at 9.3.1 ios
it have a really good software optimization for its hardware
even though it has only 1gb of ram and the processor only Dual-core it run really smooth like butter
no phone common breaking bugs on normal usage soo far
can play most heavy 3D oriented game really smooth graphics no hiccups
* seven knights, kritika, nba 2k16
touch screen is really responsive
iPhone 5c can last about 3 hours of constant on screen usage
hotspot + fb/line/kakao/messenger calling and chatting + music + video chat/facetime
goes well and sync with my ipod touch 6thgen
really have a good standby capability
even with wifi + bluetooth + data network + GPS on
leave it into your locker at work at 90% batter after 8 hours of work the battery is at 80%
and it still receive notifications while your away.
can charge really fast on fast charger, only takes an hour or less
if you have the huwaei or asus power bank that 10,000 mAh it can fully charge that device for 5 times.
one hand form factor
even tough its small it has a really sharp screen, you can read fonts clearly
the screen is bright enough to read even on broad daylight
it has LTE not fast as the LTE of the newer phone but its still a good choice over 3G
camera still have waaaaay more better and smooth back and especially the front cam for
also the camera focus and app is quick
over all camera is good for this price range
have tons of case and accessories available for this unit
of course if you can afford iphone 5s or iphone SE go get those if you prefer really good small form factor phones
also unlike most android in this price range if this one got stolen you can track it via find my device on icloud, you need this one registered into your own icloud and apple id account
*unless it was sold for parts which is untraceable*
so its either just a paper weight or sold for parts if stolen.
the only downside is its not really customization like android
you can jailbreak this one if you want to customize the phone's GUI, icons, lock screen, and enable some features that isn't available like night time, or desktop/home screen rotation
small screen *might differ depending on a person's perspective and preference*
not water prof
camera not really good at low light too many noise at low light
no touch ID
today may iphone screen became dark and non responsive, i am worrid 37thousand rupees gone in-vein because i am using apple iphone 5c from january 2014, the accessories costing very high price, like battery or charger that every thing cost above 2thousand, now my screen.....
Anyone else having issues with cell service when coming out of airplane mode or restarting? It can take up to almost 10 min to get service (yes, there is service on a normal phone). It also drops service regularly. And that's while being right beside a tower.

Is it worth it to spend extra money on the iphone 5s. My friend has one looks alright but plastic looks cheap, i will use it on medium to high gaming and basics.Pls reply ASAP
Hey guys would u tell me about iphone 5c .... Is it nice to buy any disadvantges ?
But I'm little upset with the iPhone 5c rear camera. It's not that good which it should be. A 8-megapixel AF camera of this phone is beat able by BlackBerry Z10's 8-megapixel. It's far better than the iPhone 5c's rear camera. Apple could have given a better camera quality for this phone. Front facing camera is amazing even in low light. The rear facing camera is better in the daylight.
So here it is, the iOS 9.3.1
Works smoothly on the iPhone 5c. Doesn't lags a bit, functionality is super awesome. Upgrading to 9.3.1 will be a good move.
Without any doubt it's perfect. Battery backup has increased as compared to the older 9.2 version even on 3G network.
Dev, 31 Mar 2016Need opinions about 9.3... My 5c is working great with 9.2.1. Should I upgrade to 9.3???Yes.. The iphone 5c works so well on iOS 9.3.1. It doesn't lags anywhere, super smooth functionality, no bugs, better battery backup as compared to the iOS 9.2.1. Upgrading to 9.3.1 will result into a good move. 👍🏻😊
