Features you might like

  • Color Choices - The iPhone 5C sports five color options; white, pink, yellow, blue, and green. All mesh well with iOS 7's brighter palette.

  • Durable Shell - The hard-coated polycarbonate body is durable and won't show as many scratches as the aluminum back on the iPhone 5.

  • Camera - With iOS 7 on the iPhone 5C, you can take 1080p HD video and make use of the 3x zoom.

If you...

want ultrafast 4G LTE, fast graphics, and a larger screen than the 4S, get the iPhone 5. The display’s 16×9 ratio is optimal for watching video and it’s all packed into a lighter, thinner frame.
