iPhone 5c review

The iPhone 5c might not be cheap, but it's a gorgeous handset that brings a breath of fresh air to the iPhone lineup. For many people, it might even be a better choice than the iPhone 5s.

Pros
  • Gorgeous design
  • Beautiful colors and craftsmanship
  • Global LTE support
  • Most affordable new iPhone yet
Cons
  • Last year's internals
  • Camera stumbles in low light
