The most eye-catching version of the iPhone 5C is undoubtedly the pink model. Add to that iOS 7, 4G network support and a gorgeous four-inch Retina Display and the result is a phone that's amazing both inside and out.
Thanks to its plastic shell, this is the lightest iPhone ever. But don't think for a second that it's not robust. Underneath is a steel-reinforced frame that means it's more than a match for everyday bumps and knocks.
Did we say how powerful this phone is? We didn't. Well we should've. The iPhone 5C features an A6 processor that's twice as brawny as the iPhone 5. The extra heft means you can zip through menus and apps and gives you much more time to do whatever it is you like doing.
More power always means faster battery drain, though, right? Wrong. Not with the iPhone 5C. The A6 processor is extra energy-efficient to minimise power consumption. Plus Apple has fitted the iPhone 5C with the longest-life battery ever seen on an iPhone. Put them together and you've got a phone that can deliver up to ten hours, browsing, video playback or talk time on a full charge.
4G support comes as standard too. That means superfast downloads, web pages that load in a trice and video streaming that's uninterrupted by buffering. All of which makes for an incredible mobile internet experience.
Apple hasn't neglected the iPhone 5C's camera either. This time the eight-megapixel iSight camera is equipped with a five-element lens, stunning panorama mode and eight brilliant filters, so you can really express yourself with your stills.
It's excellent at video as well. a 3x digital zoom gets you closer to the action than ever before, while video image stabilisation technology miminises jerkiness. And because it records lush 1080HD footage, your home movies take on the look of Hollywood blockbusters.
Ensuring everything ticks over is the wholly revamped iOS 7 operating system. This adds better multi-tasking, plus one-swipe access to key settings and features with Control Centre. New versions of apps such as Safari are here too. And the all-new AirDrop app makes sharing easier.
Other features of the iPhone 5C take in 8GB of internal storage, a massive array of apps to choose from and a new front-facing camera for FaceTime video calls and selfies.
