About This Brand

Apple's smart phones have gone through years of conservative, incremental updates, but its latest models, the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, catch up to device offerings from other phone makers in a serious way. The revamping includes a larger 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch screen respectively, a better battery life, enhanced messaging capabilities, and smart tweaks to their keyboard interfaces. Their Touch ID fingerprint, which promises a safe transaction while eliminating the need to type in a PIN or perform other cumbersome steps, now support the new Apple Pay-wallet service.

Best Uses
IPhone 5 C was purchased for a responsible 13 year old girl. Her first phone! 2 months she dropped it less than 2 ft. on bedroom floor. Screen cracked right across the top corner. Took to store but they don't warranty or repair. Recommended repair shop. Took phone and got it fixed. Bought a cover to keep phone in. She put phone in her book bag, took to school. She said she dropped book bag on the floor by her desk about a foot. When she took phone out after school screen was again broken even with cover. I have an IPhone 5 which has never had a problem and has been dropped many times.

Had problem with 5c after AT&T 14th day
Best Uses
Same as any other phone. They never told me at he AT&T store that I would have to deal directly with Apple if I had a problem with the phone. They can't repair the phone have to wait for another phone to arrive. Been without a phone for 3 days. Glad I have a land line at home.
