Let me start with this- I have a 4g iPod touch that I got just a few weeks after the original release. It is 3yrs old now and with brightness on high it lasts 25 minutes surfing the web (if I'm lucky) and it doesn't even work well with games unless I take my portable power "bank" charger for my iPod. Will the 5c have that same thing happen in a year or two? I had a friend tell me the newest iPhones have a battery that will survive twice as long as the 4g Itouch and should be able to hold its charge just as well as it does now in a couple years???
