The iPhone 5c is the cheaper, younger, more colourful brother to the iPhone 5.
It was in fact released along side with the iPhone 5 to be an alternative for people who couldn’t afford to shell out a ton of money for the fancy metal alloy bodies.
Nope, that stuffs just too expensive.
Being the nice people Apple are, the iPhone 5c was born by providing a plastic made body and less powerful processors.
This certainly does not go to say that an iPhone 5c is not an option for you.
In fact it may be better than alot of the other phones on offer at much higher prices…
In Tech Spartan’s opinion this is a phone for a person that:
If you identify as any one of those types of people above then getting an iPhone 5c on contract may just be for you?
Of course you could opt to buy the handset outright, and pay on a credit based system, but who wants to do that when you could get the phone for free?
Buying an iPhone 5c may be cheaper than an iPhone 5s but it’s still a lot of money to give up in one go.
Choosing either a 12 or 24 month contract will allow you to choose between the minutes, texts and data you receive all whilst not having to pay a dime towards the phone.
It also makes life easier when it comes to upgrading to a newer model as all you’ll need to is ring up your network provider and request a free upgrade.
