The Candy-Colored iPhone 5C: Weighing the Pros and Cons

Sep 10 2013 - 2:02pm

After much speculation, Apple's phone for the everyman, iPhone 5C [1], made its public debut at Tuesday's Apple event at its Cupertino, CA, headquarters. The candy-colored device is billed as an affordable device "for the colorful" and a perfect complement to iOS 7 [2] — but is it right for you?

Before the iPhone 5C is up for preorder on Sept. 13, weigh the reasons why you should or should not buy Apple's latest smartphone.

Final Verdict

The iPhone 5C is a pretty easy sell: iPhone 5-grade specs at a relatively affordable price, great color options, and travel-friendly connectivity around the globe.

If you've already got an iPhone 5, an iPhone 5C might feel like an upgrade with its longer battery life, but its heft will certainly weigh you down. If you've got an iPhone 4 and don't have the funds to purchase an iPhone 5S, then the upgrade to the 5C is definitely your best bet. Preorder the phone on Sept. 13, and you'll receive it on Sept. 20.
