Honor 3C Smartphone Review


Get the Honor. The young Honor brand of the Chinese manufacturer Huawei adds a new member, which offers a great price-to-performance ratio. A 5-inch HD display, quad-core SoC and dual-SIM functionality – all for 140 Euros (~$149).

Bright IPS display, Decent colors, Cameras are good with bright lighting, Good performance, Sturdy case, Removable battery, Dual-SIM, Battery life is good, Stable WLAN reception, GPS fast and precise

Poor low light performance, Glossy panel attracts smudges, No LTE or NFC

The Honor 3C offers a great price-to-performance ratio and deserves our recommendation. The test model, which is available for around 140 Euros (~$149), offers the user a bright, colorful IPS HD touchscreen. The slightly outdated software works well...

Honor 3C


The most convincing Moto G alternative to date

Superb screen for the price ; Better handling than the Moto G ; Great value

No 4G ; Performance issues only partly fixable ; Very dated software

In short: this is perhaps the best 5-inch screen you’ll find at £109, coming in slightly under the Moto G, which offers similar display quality.

Huawei Honor 3C review


5 inches of HD, quad-core Android phone for just £110

Good HD screen ; Surprisingly solid build ; Above average battery life ; Selfie-proof 5MP front camera

Uninspired design ; Average camera quality ; No 4G ; Underpowered processor

So cheap it seems unfair to knock it, this is a surprisingly good phone and you'd need to spend double to get anything significantly better.

Huawei Honor 3C budget smartphone review


At just over £100, the Honor 3C is a decent budget smartphone with a good screen and reasonable specs that'll do the trick if you're looking for something cheap and cheerful. Here, we've taken a look at the pros and cons of the Huawei-built phone in...

The Honor 3C boasts a good screen for the price tag, and trumps some of its rivals when it comes to design and power, but its downfalls include the old software, the disappointing camera and the poor graphics performance. However, for anyone looking...

Huawei Honor 3C Review: In Depth


We review the Huawei Honor 3C, a cut-back, cheaper version of the Honor 6 that's still a nifty if imperfect portable pal. Huawei has broken...

Affordable ; Bold, bright screen ; Dependable camera

Bland design ; Media kills the battery

If you’re more bothered about saving cash than looks and performance, the Huawei Honor 3C is a decent rival to the Motorola Moto G. It’s fine for the everyday tasks and the camera and screen are both strong for the asking price, although the design,...

Huawei Honor 3C


This budget smartphone has a striking new interface but is priced higher than you'd expect Huawei enters into the most competitive smartphone segment with its interesting device Honor 3C. The sleek body with smart dimensions makes it easy to hold.

Display quality, performance, battery life, Emotion UI 2.0

Camera capability in low light

With great performance, picture quality, battery life and amazing user interface, it stands out from the crowd. It is a strong contender in the segment against the Asus Zenfone 5 and Xiaomi Mi3.

Huawei Honor 3C Review- A reasonable device at pocket friendly price


The Huawei Honor 3C is packed with a 5-inch HD display, 2GB of RAM, 8-megapixel rear shooter and other good features that help the brand capturing its target audience.

• Decent Camera ; • Emotion UI ; • Gesture Controls

• Touch keys not back-lit ; • Poor visibility in sunlight ; • Prone to smudges and scratches ; • Monotonous design ; • Low earpiece volume

After going through the Huawei Honor 3C and measuring its each and every aspect we are left with mixed feelings. The device is a Yin-Yan which is packed with both good features and mediocre ones. Its HD display failed to impress us due to its poor...
