Look and feel

Obviously, the Honor 5C looks a considerable measure like the Honor 5X. The back is the place a large portion of the likenesses are, especially the brushed metal completion. The main genuine distinction is at the edges and close to the top and base, where the outline and composition are somewhat diverse to what they were on the 5X, and we feel that the 5C is really somewhat preferred looking over the 5X. The lump of the camera lens and situating of the unique mark sensor remain for all intents and purposes the same.

There are two or three different changes, the most critical of which is size. The Honor 5C has a littler screen at 5.2 crawls, and is in this way a tad bit littler and a ton simpler to handle. With regards to weight and thickness, the telephones are a great deal alike. So, the Honor 5C feels unbelievably strong and isn't too terrible to take a gander at either.

The sides of the telephone take after a standard design, with the force and volume catches on the privilege, SIM plate on the left, Micro-USB port and speaker on the base, and 3.5mm attachment at the top. Despite the fact that there are two grilles, just the one on the privilege really houses a speaker. Moreover, the edges of the telephone are adjusted off, which feels great in the hand, additionally makes the telephone somewhat difficult to hold immovably.

The telephone has a 5.2-crawl full-HD IPS LCD screen, covering 68.7 percent of the front. There are no capacitive catches on the telephone, with the Android keys showing up on-screen. Going to the screen itself, it's genuinely brilliant, yet not exactly sufficiently splendid. Hues are somewhat dull too, and the general sense we got was that the screen was quieted and not sufficiently dynamic. It's sharp and more than satisfactory for most purposes, yet in the event that you utilize your telephone for watching a ton of recordings or invest a considerable measure of energy outside in the sun, you may discover it a bit excessively dull.

The Honor 5C has a unique finger impression sensor on the back, which can be utilized to get to bolted applications and the protected, aside from opening the telephone. It's generally on standby, and can be utilized to open the telephone notwithstanding when the telephone is in rest mode. While it's extremely precise, it isn't exactly as speedy as a portion of alternate sensors we've utilized as of late. You have to hold your finger set up for a bit before it opens the telephone; light taps won't do the trap. The organization likewise gloats about how the telephone can store fingerprints rapidly with not more than six info taps. While this is valid, putting away your fingerprints is a one-time process and whenever spared here appears to be pointless.

Specifications and Software

The Honor 5C sticks to the majority of the mid-range particulars that the 5X wore, however there are a few contrasts here. The most huge of these is the utilization of the Kirin 650 SoC, which is made by Huawei's own particular auxiliary Hisilicon. It's the organization's present era mid-range SoC, and imprints a change from the 5X which utilizes the Qualcomm Snapdragon 616. It prominently utilizes the 16nm FinFET+ process for assembling, which guarantees preferred execution and battery life over the present proportional SoCs from Qualcomm and MediaTek.

There's additionally 2GB of RAM, 16GB of inside capacity (expandable by up to 128GB utilizing a microSD card) and a 3000mAh battery. In spite of the fact that there are different choices in this value range with 3GB of RAM or more, the Honor 5C oversees fine with 2GB because of a forceful memory administration framework that gets applications out of RAM to guarantee that the telephone keeps on running easily. Albeit graphically concentrated errands will push the telephone near its breaking points, it oversees fine under most normal conditions.

The Honor 5C keeps running on Android 6.0, with Huawei's EMUI 4.1 on top. The progressions between the more seasoned variant of EMUI and this one aren't extremely self-evident, with the interface holding its mark look and feel, including the same single-layered client interface, notice shade, and speedy settings menu. A fascinating element in this UI which we keep on enjoying is the magazine lock screen, which changes the lock screen foundation to another photo without fail. The telephone supervisor application is especially valuable too, controlling framework enhancement capacities, information utilization, application locking, battery utilization and that's just the beginning.

Android Marshmallow likewise brings its own particular arrangement of favorable circumstances, including better execution, Doze mode for battery enhancement, Now On Tap, and the patched up application authorizations framework.

The Honor 5C has a 13-megapixel essential camera and a 8-megapixel auxiliary camera. Both can record video at up to 1080p, and the back camera has a solitary LED streak. Run of the mill photography modes, for example, HDR, moderate movement video, time-slip video and scene are available.

The product takes into account a couple of all the more fascinating traps, including genius photograph and expert video modes which let you conform singular settings; light painting; nourishment mode; and all-core interest. The Settings menu incorporates controls for item following, grin catch, self-clock, and determination. There's likewise a fast switcher amongst photograph and video, alongside the common flips for front and back camera exchanging, the glimmer, and channels.

Camera execution is basically keeping pace with that of the Honor 5X, with better than average shading generation and subtle element. Pictures in sufficiently bright settings are great, as are low-light shots, in spite of the fact that you can hope to see a touch of loss of shading in subtle element in the last mentioned. There's next to no grain in the photos, which is superb at a telephone in this cost range.

Center velocity has been enhanced somewhat, with better question following and marginally quicker reactions. The front camera has likewise been enhanced, with the megapixel number knock up a bit. Large scale shots are intriguing, with the camera benefiting a vocation of recreating hues and detail. In any case, the cameras general don't offer any noteworthy points of interest over different choices in this value range.


Huawei didn't utilize its own Hisilicon SoC in its own Honor 5X, yet the 5C does a reversal to its convention with the Kirin 650. Execution is better than average, and the telephone by and large stands its ground in most regular circumstances. Albeit better-performing alternatives are accessible at the cost, you're unrealistic to keep running into any genuine worries with the Honor 5C.

Benchmark test scores are acceptably great, with the telephone scoring 52,099 in AnTuTu, 17,196 in Quadrant, 19fps in GFXBench and 7,529 in 3DMark Ice Storm Extreme. These scores are somewhat superior to what we're accustomed to seeing on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 and 616 SoCs that were normal on telephones in this value section till as of late, however not exactly in the same class as we've seen on current mid-range gadgets. All in all, we observed graphical and video execution to be especially great, in spite of the fact that the telephone battled a bit when we attempted to run numerous applications including overwhelming amusements.

The Honor 5C doesn't frustrate with regards to call quality, system and information availability. Battery life is superior to anything it was on the Honor 5X, regardless of adhering to a 3000mAh battery. The telephone kept running for 11 hours, 11 minutes in our video circle test, and would effectively most recent a day with moderate use. Android Marshmallow's Doze Mode has a major part to play in this, and we saw for all intents and purposes no battery channel when the telephone was not being utilized, in spite of 4G network.

The Honor 5C enhances somewhat on its ancestor, because of a more fit SoC and little changes to the camera. The configuration and construct have likewise been bettered, and Android Marshmallow includes a couple components and changes to the product. There isn't much to whine about here, particularly at this cost.

Lamentably, the 5C still does not have any wow component. Nothing in the telephone emerges, and this is in all ways a normal telephone that does what it does proficiently, yet not extraordinarily well. The valuing is focused, yet a lower cost would have suited this telephone considerably more. Purchasers are prone to incline toward different items in the same value reach, for example, the Redmi Note 3 or Lenovo Zuk Z1.
