iPhone 5C teardown reveals larger battery

iFixit found that the plastic shell was nearly impossible to bend, largely because of its heft – the rear case weighs in at 43.8 grams.

The components and form factor of the two devices are similar but the cheaper iPhone is actually heavier and thicker than its predecessor given the polycarbonate case.

The latter also benefits from a larger battery of 1510 mAh, unlike the 1440 mAh battery on the iPhone 5.

Also, the plastic shell is almost impossible to bend thanks to its weight – 43.8 grams.

The iPhone 5C gets 6 points out of 10 for repairability, which was the same the iPhone 5S got from the site.
