Secondly, the plastic body still retains the iPhone’s solid construction – so there are no worries about its build quality.

Reviews Word on the street for the Apple iPhone 5c


8.2
Specifically, it’s a 4-inch Retina Display with a resolution of 640 x 1136 pixels – giving it a respectable pixel density of 326 ppi.

8.0
The combination of the colourful exterior sits beautifully against the latest iOS 7 operating system and it's good to see Apple ditching the ode to faux leather and yellow legal paper shtick.

8.0

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight

Screen

In this scenario, details are exquisitely captured and colors maintain a pleasant balanced looked.
by PhoneArena (Sep, 2013)
Its worth is most profound with photos snapped when lighting is more than adequate, such as outdoor settings with the sun present.
by PhoneArena (Sep, 2013)
It’s not the most detailed screen out there, but it’s still effective enough to display miniscule sized text in the web browser from a zoomed out view.
by PhoneArena (Sep, 2013)

Video

Furthermore, its 1080p high-definition video recording quality is also one of its strong points, as it delivers the goods with its sharp visuals, smooth recording, moderate exposure adjustment, and mostly clear audio recording.
by PhoneArena (Sep, 2013)
Skin tones look realistic and smooth in photos and videos, and we didn't notice any ghosting.
by TechRadar (Jan, 2008)
You get the same Apple A6 processor, and the same 8-megapixel camera complete with 1080p video capture.
by PocketLint (Sep, 2013)

Camera

Flipping it to the rear, it’s packing along the same camera that’s packaged into the iPhone 5 – an 8-megapixel iSight camera that features an LED flash, backside illuminated sensor, f2.4 aperture lens, and 1080p video recording.
by PhoneArena (Sep, 2013)
On the features front, you now get a settings panel that can be accessed by swiping up from the bottom of the screen, and an enhanced camera app that makes it even easier to shoot video and photos.
by PocketLint (Sep, 2013)
In fact, the image quality is so good that you can enjoy a two-hour movie, even if you believe that movies were made for big screens.
by TechRadar (Jan, 2008)

Apps

The iPhone's Bluetooth can be used only with a phone headset and can't be used to transfer files, sync, or listen to the iPod via Bluetooth earphones.
by TechRadar (Jan, 2008)
Not only are your iPod files organised in iTunes, but you also determine your Calendar and Address Book settings there, too.
by TechRadar (Jan, 2008)
We were able to set up accounts quickly, but we did have some performance lag while typing email messages.
by TechRadar (Jan, 2008)

Battery

This time around you get a slightly higher battery capacity that promises to deliver 10 hours rather than 8 hours when talking on 3G.
by PocketLint (Sep, 2013)
We found battery life was good and delivered a full day's use on a single charge.
by PocketLint (Sep, 2013)
In our continuous talk test, the battery lasted just over seven hours.
