At Rs 8,999, the Honor 4C offers plenty of features including an octa core processor, 2 GB RAM, 13 megapixel rear camera, 5 megapixel front camera etc.
Huawei has some good budget devices under its 'Honor' brand such as the Honor 4X, Honor Holly, Honor Bee etc. Another of its offering under Rs 10,000 is the Honor 4C which costs Rs 8,999.
The Huawei Honor 4C is 6.2 mm thick and weighs 162 grams. It offers a 5 inch IPS display with high definition. The smartphone has superb 2 GB RAM, 8 GB of internal storage and a 32 GB micro SD card slot.
The Honor 4C is powered by a 1.2 GHz octa core processor and Mali 450 MP4 graphics processor. This Android KitKat based smartphone has a 2550 mAh battery that claims to offer impressive 15 hours of 3G talktime.
In the camera front it is impressive as well with a 13 megapixel rear camera and a 5 megapixel front camera. The dual SIM Honor 4C has also plenty of connectivity features including Bluetooth 4.0, WiFi, 3G, micro USB port, and GPS with A-GPS and GLONASS.
The Huawei Honor 4C is quiet a stylish smartphone thanks to its 3D laser-etched pattern that feels smooth like matte finish panels and at the same time is unique and eye-catching. It comes in black, white and golden colours of which we had the black version that looks quite gentle as well. The treatment of the rear camera unit is also a highlight of its design. The rear camera along with the flash light are secured in a metal plated and is located in the top left corner of the back panel so while keeping it on a surface the camera lens is less likely to get damaged. The brand name (Honor) has been written in the back panel in aesthetic manner. A speaker grill lies in the back panel while a mic is located at the top of the back side.
The back cover goes all the way to cover its sides as well and is easy to dislodge. The power key is placed alongside the volume rocker on the right side with ample distance in between.
In the front, there are three touch keys below the display while above it lies a 5 megapixel camera, an LED indicator and the proximity sensor.
Overall, the phone is quite pleasing to eyes and is comfortable to use.
The 5 inch display of Honor 4C has the necessary high definition resolution, thus was quite pleasing and it has enough brightness as well. We found the screen quite responsive too.
With an octa core processor and 2 GB RAM, we expected it to be fast and it is too. During our usage, it managed to play 'Lara Croft Relic Run' with ease and seemed to have no issues while multitasking.
The Honor 4C looks especially good when it comes to camera. With 13 megapixel rear camera and a 5 megapixel front camera, the smartphone managed to produce good pictures. Check its camera test here.
The Honor 4C with 2550 mAh battery also promises good back up -10 hours of 3G talktime and 15 hours of 2G talktime. It has decent connectivity options as well.
At Rs 8,999, the Honor 4C offers plenty of features. It looks terrific in terms of processing power and in camera segment especially. In terms of storage, battery back up and design too it is above average. Ofcourse, it does not have the Android Lollipop nor 4G connectivity but all the above mentioned pro makes it a good deal.
