Home Screen Tweaks
Many users often complain that they find it very difficult to navigate on smartphones as they find it very complicated. Especially, seniors avoid smartphones just for that reason.
But Honor 5C has a feature that makes it very simple to use. On the phone, there are two modes â€“ Standard and Simple. To cut down the complexity, you just have to opt for the Simple mode. In this mode, icons of apps and widgets appear in a tile-like interface. Also, the font size gets increased and thus it becomes senior-citizen friendly.
The innovative fingerprint scanner
Honor 5C has a fingerprint scanner but it is not just to lock and unlock the phone.You can program the sensor to take a photo, answer a call and stop the alarm. Besides, you can use it as a slider â€“ by sliding down on the scanner you can open notification panel and while in the gallery you can swipe right/left to browse photos.
Honor 5C has Emotion UI which comes with an innovative floating dock. This gives quick access to most used apps. This dock can be turned on any page and allows users to return to the previous page; you can also clear the RAM with just one touch or put the phone on standby mode.
Navigation Button Layout
Like many phones, Honor 5C has three on-screen touch buttons â€“ return, home, recent. But unlike other phones, this order can be changed in Honor 5C.
You can also add an extra icon to this; the fourth icon would allow you to open notification panel.
Lock Screen Signature
Many times, we misplace our phone and if the phone is locked by a password or by fingerprint, it becomes very difficult for the finder to return the handset as they have no way to find out to whom the phone belongs to.
For such scenarios, Honor 5C offers an innovative solution in the form of Lockscreen Gesture. You can add your name or your phone number or an address or any message in the Lockscreen Gesture for others.
Or simply write an inspiring quote to up your morals every time you check your device.
