Loving the iPhone 5C more than expected!

First, let me state for the record that I am a true blue Apple fanboy. Most of my friends know this.

Yes, I do have a few more smartphones on other platforms (Android and Windows Phones), too. But that doesn’t take away from the fact that I love Apple and have always had an iPhone since it came out. So naturally, when the iPhone 5s and the iPhone 5c was released, it was but automatic for me to get both. I wanted to give both devices a spin.

The iPhone has always been my partner in crime… it has provided me with tons of fun, it has kept me constantly connected to friends, family and fans. It has also saved me a couple of times when I needed to complete deadlines even when I’m away from home.

I already knew what kind of experience I’d be getting with the iPhone 5s. I knew the specs, studied the upgrades and yes, even stayed up late to watch Apple’s official launch.

Me and iPhone 5C

What took me by surprise… a pleasant surprise, actually, was the experience I had with the iPhone 5c.

Sure, it isn’t metallic or as sophisticated-looking as its bigger brother, but the iPhone 5c’s polycarbonate casing feels every bit as classy.

And it doesn’t stop there.

The iPhone 5c is a joy to use as well. Coming from an iPhone 5, it should be noted that the cameras (front & rear) of the 5c have been tweaked to provide better images. Stand-by and usage time is way better due to the iPhone 5c’s slightly larger battery capacity. Also, the 5c sports a better and upgraded LTE antenna.

All these tweaks and upgrades mean that you can play harder, work longer and surf faster!

iOS AppsPicture this… I’m doing a ton of email correspondences using my Sparrow and Gmail app, doing blog drafts on my WordPress app, tweaking images and adding filters all on the fly using my Camera+ and VSCOcam apps, then working on a few documents and reading my script on the Google Drive app, while tweeting, scrolling through Facebook and posting photos on Instagram on a regular basis. Crazy right? Crazy good! And I haven’t even started talking about the wonderful games I play with the 5C every now and then when I get the chance… games like Candy Crush (duh!), Monopoly, You Don’t Know Jack and Plants Vs Zombies to name a few.

You’d be surprised to know that I even use my iPhone 5c as a line-in microphone to my multi-track audio recording application on my iMac whenever I do demos and jingles. It’s true! I do realtime vocal recordings straight to the desktop using the 5c as my input device. The iPhone has a wonderful built-in microphone which I have actually learned to master.

I hardly touch my desktop workstation anymore. Howcome? Because the iPhone has become my main go-to workstation already.

Me andthe green iPhone 5C

Even my wife loves tinkering with my iPhone 5c. She also loves the apple green color I picked, too. I normally see her using it or sometimes find the device on her chest when she’s fallen asleep playing with it. Hahaha! No joke. I’m somehow getting the feeling that she’s slowly sequestering the iPhone 5c and making it her own. I don’t blame her.

It goes without saying that having an iPhone 5c should go in tandem with a good data plan. The kind of plan that keeps up with the capabilities and features of this amazing phone.

I have always been subscribed to Globe‘s Unlimited Data Plan which keeps me connected 24/7… just the way I like it and the kind that fits my type of lifestyle. But apart from that, the reason why I also opted to go for this kind of plan is so that I can easily avoid extra charges. I know exactly how much my postpaid plan’s monthly billing will be every single time. That way, I don’t have to worry about ruining my budget.

You know what actually caught my attention just recently? Globe’s iPhone Forever plan. Have you heard about it, too? OMG! It’s every iPhone fanboy’s dream!

Hands down, iPhone Forever is THE BEST DATA PLAN for iPhone fanatics. Why? Because you can get a new iPhone every year without the hassle of finishing a 2-year contract period. It is the kind of plan that assures you of being able to have the latest (and greatest) iPhone models as soon as they come out!

Globe iPhone Forever

For as low as Php 1,599.00/month, you get a free iPhone 5c (16GB) and the plan is inclusive of 1GB of data and a monthly consumable amount for calls and texts! For data plan choices, there are options for a consumable data plan (1GB of data) or unlimited data plan. Sounds like a very good deal to me!

This is one of the reasons why I have always been a Globe postpaid subscriber. The flexibility of their plans and the ability to come up with new and awesome ways to please customers is always top priority.

For a diehard Apple fanboy like me, subscribing to iPhone Forever assures me of having first dibs on the newest iPhone models… and that is something I just cannot resist.

Love the iPhone? Of course you do…! No reason for you not to go for Globe’s iPhone Forever just like me!

Besides, what could possibly go wrong? Based on my very long experience with Globe’s postpaid service and their evident expertise in iPhone, the way I see it, Globe is the brand that knows you when it comes to the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c – from best postpaid offers, deals, and a delightful customer experience.

Who says diamonds are the only things that last FOREVER? LOL!

By the way, Globe also offers the mySUPERPLAN. In a nutshell, you only pay Php 1,349.00 a month. Broken down, that’s basically 499.00 + 850.00 (cashout) for 24 months. You get 300MB worth of monthly data (yes, LTE too!) and FREE calls and texts. That’s a pretty good deal for an iPhone 5c, too. But either way, whichever Globe postpaid plan you go for is surely way better than competing offers elsewhere. Take it from someone who’s been subscribed to them for soooo long already.

I believe that one of the main reasons why I am seriously enjoying the experience of using an iPhone 5c (apart from its obviously amazing interface) as well as all my other previously owned iPhone models is because of the service I am getting from my mobile data provider. You can liken it to say… a car perhaps. What good is an awesomely fast Lamborghini if you can only drive it in traffic-laden streets? Get my point?

It has to be a perfect marriage between device and data delivery.

iPhone 5C colors

The iPhone 5c gives you the awesome functionality of the iOS interface without the price tag of the 5s.

For most people, the iPhone 5c is actually more than enough. Some people don’t realize that getting an iPhone 5s may sometimes be overkill if your kind of lifestyle doesn’t demand it. As cliche as it sounds, “don’t knock it till you try it”.

My advice is simple… never underestimate the iPhone 5c.

You’ll eventually realize that all you ever needed is a very good postpaid plan to maximize the full potential of your iPhone just the way I have with the iPhone 5c.

That way, you can play harder, work longer and surf faster… with your iPhone Forever. Sweet.
