    I know the 5C phones are made with (some) cheaper parts, does it provide as good a hotspot as the newer phones, or might I notice a difference? Does anyone know or have had the opportunity to compare?

    I dont think you'll be able to tell much difference between the 2.
    The iphone 6 and 6S has slightly faster LTE radios but it also depends on your carrier and local area coverage.

    Slightly faster LTE performance on newer devices. If you're looking for purely a hotspot, the 5c is fine and dirt cheap too. But bear in mind, most carriers charge more per month for a phone than for a hotspot.
