My iPhone 5C Review
*****First off, I know what I'm gonna say here is probably nothing new. Just wanna get it out there.*****
My review on the iPhone 5C is strictly my opinion (with some facts thrown in )
Call and Data:
Great. Haven't had a dropped call, and the quality has been great. I'm able to hear others just fine, and others are able to hear me just fine. This shouldn't be a problem in 2013 anyways, along with the fact that no one talks on the phone anymore.
In terms of data, all is well. LTE here in the Dallas area and suburbs is great, easily getting 40+MBPS Download speed on LTE.
Excellent camera for me. The 8 Megapixel iSight camera, while not mind blowing, is just fine for most consumers. Low light photos are great as well, but, I'm not that picky about my photos, that's what I use my Canon camera for.
I'm coming from a Galaxy SIII, and, boy, is it nice to be able to use a phone with one hand. Texting while doing something else is a breeze, and the smaller screen size overall feels nicer in the hand to me. The smaller screen, while it isn't ideal for watching videos or movies for a power user, does however look crisp and clean.
Excellent, excellent, and more excellent. I easily get through my 8 hour workdays while streaming iTunes radio, texting, emailing, and social networking and come home with about 40-50% of my battery left. On my Galaxy S3, while having the same usage, I usually came home with about 15% battery remaining. And believe me, I did all the secret battery tips, tricks, and optimizations while on my S3.
Not many gripes here. About my only gripe is how slippery the phone feels in the hand. I can handle it, but sometimes, you feel like you are just going to drop it because of the slick polycarbonate.
The iPhone 5C, while not as flashy as the superior iPhone 5S, is still a great phone. The iPhone 5C will at least be supported as long as the iPhone 5, so we have about 2, maybe 3 more iOS updates left, so it should be relevant for a while. Overall, I'd rate the iPhone 5C a 9/10.
