The hardware of iPhone 5C is quite similar with the old iPhone 5 as it’s treated as the replacement of the former one.New Facetime HD front camera for iPhone 5C is kind of the major change already.However,the lower price tag and refreshed colorful design(maybe a bit better overall performance) are the points to catch the eyes of the young generations.Will they really be attractive? Please leave your comment.
