In the budget smartphone segment, there are plenty of choices. But most of them do not offer all-around experience. However, the newly launched Honor 5C is an aberration. Here we are not going to talk about its price because at Rs 10,999. it is sweetly price. Instead, we will be talking about top 5 reasons why one should consider buying the Honor 5C.
Body and design
Unlike most other budget phones that have a plastic body, Honor 5C comes with a metal body. The metal body has textured finish and curves gently around to meet the screen, resulting in a phone that’s easy to grip with one hand. As a result, even though the device has a big 5.2-inch display, it feels very compact.
But is it durable?
Well, the 5C has an anodized finish that makes it tough and resistant to day to day scratches. It is also the first Huawei phone that has been subjected to higher drop tests, better thermal management, and port durability as compared any other device launched by the company previously.
Huawei Honor 5C has a 13-megapixel primary camera with f2.0 aperture and LED flash on the rear and an 8-megapixel front shooter for selfies. The rear camera is capable of clicking amazing landscapes, architecture, low light pictures and just about any kind of photo you want to take. Even the front camera is really good and selfies will come out as real.
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.
Honor 5C comes loaded with all-new Kirin 650 chipset 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.
Operating System and User Interface
Along with the latest software, the Honor 5C also offers the latest operating system – the Android Marshmallow based EMUI 4.1, thus offering maximum app compatibility. Due to Android Marshmallow, the Honor 5C offers smoother performance as well.
The EMUI 4.1 is quite simple and user-friendly. It doesn’t have any app drawer, meaning every app installed on the phone is placed on the home screen as a standalone app or as a part of a folder.
In EMUI 4.1 one can do a lot of customizations and it has an inbuilt app monitor to keep a track of power usage, allowing users to identify problem apps and shut them down.
Last but not the least is its huge 3000 mAh battery. The humongous battery allows Honor 5C to offer one and half days back up 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.
