iPhone 5C, C for ColorsI thought iPhone 5C is supposed to be a cheap iPhone but that's not the real case. It's just basically an iPhone 5 with a polycarbonate cover instead of aluminum. Polycarbonate is just a fancy term for a type of plastic.
There are a few differences though between iPhone 5 and iPhone 5C. One is the higher battery capacity, another is the iOS7 operating system and lastly, the 5 colors to choose from for iPhone 5C.
Here's how iPhone 5C looks like:

iPhone 5C Price and Availability in the Philippines
If we convert those figures to Philippine Peso, we have around ₱24,000 but this will go up to ₱28,000 for the 16GB and ₱32,000 for the 32GB version. Of course, the actual price of iPhone5C in stores and online retailers can vary but it will be around that figure.

Is that cheap? It certainly isn't. But, Globe and Smart will surely offer iPhone 5C in their post paid promos.
