Honor 5C review


The Moto G4 has a new low-cost rival

Great value ; Solid performance ; Strong screen for price

Part-metal frame isn't impressive ; Scatty camera focusing ; Poor low-light photos

The Honor 5C is a great budget phone to make the choice for buyers at this end of the market that much trickier. With a good set of cameras, a strong screen and no annoying performance issues, this a bargain.

Honor 5C Review: In Depth


Honor 5C review: Honor is gunning hard for best affordable smartphone of 2016 with the new Honor 5C, but does it make the grade?

Great camera experience ; Premium design touches ; Good performance ; Solid battery life

Lacklustre video performance ; Screen is a little washed out ; Fingerprint prone screen ; Middling design

Huawei Honor 5C Handset : Huawei Honor 5C


It was a rainy day in London as I made my way to find out more about the latest Honor handset.

The Honor 5C’s performance is more than adequate especially when compared against similarly priced handsets. Loading apps and scrolling through images and websites was fine although I would have preferred more of a reluctance of the screen to gather...

Обзор смартфона Huawei Honor 5C


Смартфон с FHD-разрешением, IPS-матрицей, 2 ГБ оперативной и 16 ГБ внутренней памяти, 13 МП камерой, продающийся за 15 000 рублей

. Новинка от Alcatel, которую представляли еще на IFA 2015. Достойный по всем параметрам аппарат с классными стереодинамиками от JBL.

Honor 5C review: A well-balanced device that lacks any defining quality - Tech2


Honor 5C is the latest offering from Huawei's sub-brand in the budget segment, is it worth buying? Here is our take in the device

The Honor 5C offers a blend of good design, appealing UI and a capable hardware. It is definitely a good update over its predecessor, the Honor 4C , and feels as good as the Honor 5X. There are minor software issues but nothing that a quick update...

Huawei's Honor 5C is a pretty and powerful package, with dual SIM to boot (hands-on)


Huawei offshoot Honor is bringing its latest smartphone to Europe. The Honor 5C is all about wowing potential buyers with the killer combination of high-octane power and an eye-catchingly low price. It's just £150 in the UK -- that converts to about...

Honor 5C review: Balanced and affordable, not exciting


Honor's new entry-level model is better value than the 5X — but this £150 phone still comes with a few compromises.

Huawei Honor 5C


Smooth, reassuring, compact.

Good ergonomics ; Decent camera ; Good battery life

Slight sluggishness in overall performance ; Nothing that really attracts a buyer

The Honor 5C is a good smartphone that gets a lot right, but unfortunately, does not really have anything that sets it apart in competition. It offers good performance, camera, ergonomics, battery life, and is an overall pleasant device. The lack of...

Huawei Honor 5C Review


Honor 5C is the successor to Huawei Honor 4C, and comes with all metal uni-body design. Here's our review of the smartphone.

Huawei has done a strong job with the Honor 5C, improving on what was lacking in the Honor 4C. The display, camera, and overall performance of the phone are quite good. Huawei is launching this phone with Android M update, which is another point in its...

Honor 5C review: Has some ups and downs - The Times of India


The budget segment of smartphones is getting increasingly crowded with new phones launching every week. But surely, this gives users a lot of options to choose from.

*Beautiful design ; *Excellent fingerprint sensor ; *Good display

All in all, at this price point there are a lot of options available in the Indian market with similar or better phone specs. The road to success does seem rocky for Honor 5C.
