Honor 5C Review

02 January 2017

The Honor 5C is a great handset that matches the likes of Moto G in its design and display quality. This affordable handset is giving the big manufacturing giants a run for their money.

Design and Display

Like most low-cost phones, a plastic body brushed with aluminum is what you will get with this handset. The sides are made entirely of plastic, but the metallic glamor makes it look quite sophisticated. In terms of ease of use and handling, this is a pleasant handset. As for the display, you have a generous 5.2-inch screen with 1080 IPS LCD. The handset has the clear and sharp display. You also have great viewing angles with this phone.


You have an Emotion UI 4.1 along with Android Marshmallow. The navigation and icons are very clean and classy. As for the processor, you have a HiSilicon Kirin 650 which is paired with the 2GB RAM. The octa core processor is an added benefit. In terms of performance, this is a great device considering the price that it is available at. Internal storage is a disappointment at just 16GB.

Other Features

You can be sure of a great battery life with this handset with the powerful 3000mAH battery. As for the camera, you have a 13 MP rear camera with high-end functions such as 4K recording. You get some amazing, sharp images in daylight. Low light photography, however, is not the most impressive feature of this handset. You get a great 8MP front camera which is really top notch for a device in this price range. Real colors and sharpness are qualities that you can expect from this camera as well.

While a contract deal is not really necessary for a phone in this price range, you can look for the best Honor 5C options on mobilephonescomparison.co.uk.
