Rated 5 out of 5 by Wheelet from New to Apple and pleasantly surprised So I am an Android user and always have been. I'm also middle aged and don't like to have to figure out complicated devices. My son has an I phone 5c and tbh it's not all that great. However, I really love this phone.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Tweedledee from Who can tell? I am sure that my phone could be amazing. I have received good service from Carfone Warehouse. However, after 10 days, Vodafone have still not enabled me to receive phone calls. I can only sometimes make calls. The service I have received from them has been extremely disappointing which has unfortunately taken the shine off my new phone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sandra from Best buy Best purchase. Was really simple to purchase online and only had to wait three days to receive it. Not only was the delivery quick but the delivery package came with everything I needed. It was a very simple and stress free process. The phone too was in perfect condition and only took a few moments to set up following the instructions in the package. Couldn't fault anything. Very easy process.
