It’s taken me a couple days to formulate my bullet-point impressions of the iPhone 5c, mainly because this one is my wife’s. We alternate updates, with her being on the “incrementals.” With the
iPhone 5c, however, Tieraney is mostly pretty thrilled. The different design and the striking color make it feel like a more significant upgrade than it is, considering the internals are pretty
much identical to my iPhone 5.
I also forget just how much difference there is between her previous iPhone 4S and the iPhone 5. Her screen is larger, she finally has a Retina display (“See how great Candy Crush looks now?” she
asked, because it’s good to remember what’s important), and it’s significantly faster. So, although it’s not the iPhone 5s (and good thing, too, considering how hard they’ve been to purchase so
far), there’s still quite a bit to like.
