“With its high-quality design and the promise of long-lasting use, the Honor 5C defies the norms”
Up until now, it was always perceived that a higher price tag corresponds to a high level of quality. Be it the design, hardware or service, it is expected that the steep prices are due to the effort behind creating a long-lasting smartphone. But not anymore. With companies like Honor, the perception has started to change. Its latest smartphone, the Honor 5C drives that point further as users can experience the epitome of build quality at an affordable price. Yes, until few years ago, it might have seemed a little far-fetched, but the Honor 5C offers tremendous quality and value for your money at Rs 10,999.
Along with a design that can turn many heads, the Honor 5C also packs quite a punch when it comes to the sheer processing power. For starters, the device packs in a 5.2-inch full HD display with an excellent screen-to-body ratio of 74 percent. The highlight of the device however, is its Kirin 650 processor, which makes the 5C the first smartphone in the budget segment to run on the FinFET Plus 16nm chip technology. This in turn results in up to 65 percent more performance, while consuming about 40 percent less power. Not to forget, the benefits of getting a sleek design and a more refined camera experience.
Honor has made sure you don’t compromise at any front, as the phone sports a rear fingerprint scanner which can securely unlock your device in a jiffy. A 3,000mAh battery (battery test), and 2 gigs of RAM ensure a smooth performance.
For the shutterbugs, the Honor 5C has a lot in store inside its 13MP rear camera. Users who like to tweak the settings would enjoy the Pro mode as well as a ton of features like Face Detection, HDR, Panorama and much more. But if you’re one that prefers using the front camera more, then the device greets you with an 8MP BSI sensor for the same. The phone runs the latest Android 6.0 Marshmallow with Huawei EMUI 4.1 on top.
While the geek inside us is surely excited, it’s now turn for the eyes to get a sumptuous treat. When it comes to phones, Honor has always given priority to quality and durability of the smartphone. In fact, we put the Honor 5X to a series of drop tests, and it remained unscathed until we tried to break it with full force. And the Honor 5C is no different. The smartphone is crafted from an aircraft-grade aluminium-alloy body which is smooth and comfortable to hold. It features a brushed metal effect to give it a shiny diamond-polish finish. The ridged edges provide a firm grip, while also housing the dual antennas which switch accordingly to provide you the best calling experience. And to ensure the beauty lives long, all this is protected by an anodised coating.
With a weight of just about 156g and a waistline of 8.3mm, the Honor 5C provides one of the best handheld experiences out there in the market. The 5.2-inch canvas provides a compact form factor. The screen is big enough to enjoy media, while not being so large as to hinder the grip. The rounded design embraces ergonomic engineering as the smartphone sits perfectly in the palm of your hand. The Honor 5C can fit in your pocket with ease too.
For years, it seemed that price and quality go hand in hand. Higher the price, higher the quality standards. But with the Honor 5C, the company has pushed the boundaries, as the smartphone packs in a beautiful design and powerful hardware, both of which will last you long thanks to the high quality standards. You can pick one up for yourself from Flipkart or Honor’s e-store for just Rs 10,999 without the hassles of any flash sales.
