Check out our hands-on Honor 5C review for our thoughts on this great-value mobile.
What are the Honor 5C’s specs?
This 5.2-inch phone boasts a Full HD IPS screen, packing 424 pixels-per-inch for crisp, clear images. Android 6.0 Marshmallow is the OS of choice, overlaid with Huawei’s Emotion UI 4.1, which should hopefully run smoothly thanks to the Kirin 650 chipset that powers the Honor 5C. This octa-core processor is formed of two quad-core chips, one running at 2GHz and the other running at 1.7GHz. It’s backed by 2GB of RAM.
You get a 13-megapixel f/2.0 rear camera, plus an 8-megapixel f/2.0 front-facing lens for snapping your gorgeous mug. With 16GB of storage, you should have enough space to store hundreds of photos. A 3000mAh battery will hopefully keep you going all day while the Honor 5C also boasts support for dual SIM cards.
As for the Honor 5C’s design, the phone packs an aluminum frame with a brushed metal effect. It weighs 156g.
