The oustanding, slimmed down 8GB version of the blue iPhone 5C is a great smartphone at a great price. Team 4G support with a four-inch Retina Display, a terrific camera and the latest iOS 7 software and wrap it up it a lightweight plastic shell and you're talking about a handset that might just have the lot.
Taking stunning photos with the iPhone 5C is a breeze. And the reason for that is its excellent eight-megapixel iSight camera. With a five-element lens, special array of vintage filters and the ability to shoot jaw-dropping panoramic images, it's a match for any dedicated digital camera.
Of course, it's great at video as well. Shoot a home movie with the iPhone 5C and you'll get lush 1080 HD footage that means it looks like something you'd expect to see at a multiplex. A 3X digital zoom gets you closer to the action, while video image stabilisation technology keeps your clips free of jerkiness.
Then there's the fact that this phone is super fast. Because it features a powerful A6 processor that's twice as sinewy as the iPhone 5's A5 model, it's amazingly snappy to use and lets you zip through menus and apps. 4G support means that web pages load faster, while downloads take a fraction of the time they take on 3G.
To ensure all that speed doesn't mean faster battery drain, though, the A6 has been optimised for energy efficiency. And there's a super long-life battery too, which promises ten hours of browsing, streaming or talk-time on a single full charge. That's the best battery on any iPhone ever.
Rounding things off is the excellent iOS 7 operating system. This brings some terrific new additions to the iPhone. Not least better multi-tasking and Control Centre feature that means key functions and settings are only ever a single swipe away. And you get some great new apps too, including a revamped Safari for slicker browsing and AirDrop that makes sharing simpler.
Other standout specs of this superb smartphone include 16GB of internal storage, a huge range of apps and a front-facing FaceTime HD camera for video calls.
