Ask any person, they will cite three important aspects of a mobile phone, namely battery, performance and camera. And the Honor 5C scores very high in all these three departments.
To start with the Honor 5C has a very powerful chipset – the Kirin 650. Developed by Huawei itself, the octa core processor is made with FinFET Plus 16 nm chip technology that offers lightning-fast performance compared with previous-generation 28 nm chipsets. This new chipset helps in multiple reductions in energy loss, multiple increases in speed and all-round solutions to lagging, slowness, and heat build-up. The Kirin 650 also comes with silicon-chip level protection. There is also a dedicated security module within the silicon chip that ensures user security, handling key information like fingerprints, keypad, and voice.
There is something for gamers as well. Honor 5C comes with a powerful Mali-T830 GPU ensures seamless gaming experience with 100% increase in GPU performance compared with previous-generation Kirin 620.
Along with that the Honor 5C is armed with a huge 3000 mAh battery. This compact battery comes 650 Wh/L energy density – the best for a 3000 mAh battery, at present. This means it is as good as a 4000 mAh battery with lesser energy density. The phone has Android 6.0 operating system which has Doze Mode in which the system attempts to conserve battery by restricting apps’ access to network and CPU-intensive services. It also prevents apps from accessing the network and defers their jobs, syncs, and standard alarms. Additionally, the Honor 5C has Huawei’s 3.0 power-saving technology that further allows the user to save power when in need.
All these features and the humongous battery allows Honor 5C to offer one and half dayâ€™s backup even for the heavy users whose life revolves around their smartphones. With average usage getting two days of power back will never be an issue.
Last but not the least is the cameras of Honor 5C. It has a 13-megapixel rear camera and an 8-megapixel front camera. The company has put in a lot of efforts to make hardware and software combination of the camera the best in its price segment.
The 13-megapixel rear camera with F2.0 aperture and 78Â° wide-angle 5-element (5P) macro lens makes sure that one gets clarity in every shot using the Honor 5C. It comes loaded with Anti-reflective, oleophobic, and infrared-absorbing lens coating that reduce reduces glare, prevents fingerprints, and stops unwanted IR light from reaching the sensor. And that is not all, the 8-megapixel front camera with F2.0 aperture and 77Â° wide-angle lens makes sure that selfies also come out well. Do achieve that 5C has a four-element (4P) lens assembly with the front camera that helps is capturing the crystal-clear image.
Further the phone has pro mode, time-lapse, slow-mo, pro-video, good food, light painting and many such high end camera features which are rare to find in budget devices.
In Honor 5C, both the front and rear camera can record video at up to 1080p. In most of the smartphones available in the market, one can record videos from both the cameras, not at 1080p. While recording videos tracking the objects and focusing will never be an issue.
If you love shooting portraits or group shots HDR mode will be handy. The HDR mode combines a series of images with different exposures into a single photo to produce a perfectly-exposed subject and background with more accurate colour reproduction.
The camera app is based on Smart Image 3.0 image processor with a variety of creative filters and shooting modes. It is loaded with modes like time-lapse, slow-mo, watermark, audio note, pro photo and pro video ,light painting; food mode; and all focus. The Settings menu includes controls for object tracking, smile capture, self-timer, and resolution. There’s also a quick switch between photo and video, along with the typical toggles for front and rear camera switching, the flash, and filters.
For instance, in case if you want to use Light Painting mode just select the mode and the app will automatically give you manual control of the shutter for long exposure shots.
If one wants to take pictures in low light, Honor 5C will not disappoint you either. Snaps taken in low light will have detailing and sharpness to impress you. So go ahead and explore Honor 5C it is a budget smartphone with premium features.
