Cheaper, not cheap
THE iPHONE 5C is slightly cheaper, but not really cheap. Technically, Apple has discontinued the iPhone 5 and replaced it with a slightly better iPhone 5C. This one has a new polycarbonate body with a steel shell, but the 4-inch capacitive touch display and A6 chipset are the same as before. The 5C will run the new iOS 7 out of the box. For HD recording, a 3x zoom has been added while the new FaceTime HD camera with improved backside illumination sensor works better in low light. You can also make audio-only FaceTime calls now.
