Verge score: 8.5

Internally, the iPhone 5C is mostly the same as the iPhone 5: an A6 chip, 4-inch retina display, and LTE are all on board. Externally, though, is where things start to change: the 5C's shell is a polycarbonate plastic that comes in five color variations (green, blue, pink, yellow, and white).
