‘Budget’ iPhone — Apple iPhone 5c Specifications

Apple iPhone 5c Specifications

Apple expends its range to the more affordable phones with its iPhone 5C. Though it’s not cheap to come in the range of budget phones, but with its slightly lower prices, it deviates from the premium range of iPhones which were marked as being the highest in the prices.

The new iPhone 5C was launched with metal body and polycarbonate body which is different from the latest flagship iPhone 6 models of Apple which came with the premium materials.

It is the sole model in the mid-range with no rivals from the Androids. It comes with the starting prices at $549 for its SIM-free 16GB model. It also comes with the Apple tradition of no misro-SD slot, so you have to pay more if you want to go from 16GB to 32GB where it will be available at $100 additional cost.

It has managed to down its cost by following the old technique of ditching the glass and aluminum body. Like the every handset of Apple we have seen since the iPhone 4, with slightly lower prices the iPhone 5C also observe the same to reduce its prices. It gets back to the polycarbonate as it was used in the iPhone 3GS.

The third party cases, skins and other protection come with more colors and varieties which may down the use of Apple branded cases.
