Huawei's Honor 5C is a pretty and powerful package, with dual SIM to boot (hands-on)


Huawei wants the Honor 5C to catch your eye with its brushed-metal chassis -- and then reel you in with its £150 price tag.

Honor 5C Smartphone Review


It's an honor. A superb screen and decent camera wrapped in a metal casing – with a price of under 200 Euros (~$223), the Honor 5C makes a big impression. This review reveals whether the 5.2-inch smartphone is really that great.

superb Full HD panel ; price-performance ; decent photos in bright light ; modern Android ; NFC ; high performance ; good call quality ; useful battery life ; dual-SIM

sleek casing ; non-removable battery ; either second SIM or micro-SD ; no USB OTG ; no App2SD ; limited wireless frequencies ; a lot of bloatware ; poor camera quality in low-light ; relatively heavy

OnePlus' X was quite a sensation among affordable mid-range smartphones at the time. Honor's 5C is no less surprising: High-quality components are hidden behind the naked and at a first glance not really spectacular specifications, which make our...

Honor 5C review


The Honor 5C is a budget handset from Huawei that gives a lot more than it should for the money. With a fast octa-core processor, Full HD 5.2 inch screen, strong 3,000mAh battery and customisable fingerprint sensor, the Honor 5C puts up a good fight in...

The Huawei Honor 5C is a smaller and cheaper version of the company's Honor 5X handset . With a faster 8-core processor and an upgraded front camera, it seems like a very good choice, especially since it uses the latest version of Huawei's user...

Honor 5C review: Balanced and affordable, not exciting


Honor's new entry-level model is better value than the 5X — but this £150 phone still comes with a few compromises.

Honor 5C Review: Struggling to hold its own - MySmartPrice


If you have been looking in the market for a smartphone under 15k, you will soon realise that you are inundated with choices that make it really difficult to actually pick one. The Xiaomi Redmi Note 3, the Lenovo Vibe K4 Note, the Lenovo Z1, the Moto...

Honor 5C Review


Huawei's Honor brand launched the Honor 5C smartphone in India last month priced at Rs. 10,999. It recently went on open sale in the country. We already brought you the hands-on impressions of the smartphone, here we have the complete review of the phone.

Beautiful and Ergonomic Design ; Fast and Accurate Fingerprint Scanner ; Good Display with Good Sunlight Legibility ; Great Camera Quality and UI ; Good Battery Life ; Good Audio Quality Through Earphones

No Fast Charging ; Video Recording Isn’t Very Impressive ; No Dual-band and AC Standard WiFi

The Honor 5C is one of those smartphones that come along once in a while. You don’t expect much from it but by the end of the review duration, you are left thoroughly impressed. In most smartphones, specifications may wow you or impress you but then...

Honor 5C review: all in the family


Honor was placed under the spotlight with the release of the Honor 7 and, to a lesser extent, the Honor 5X. Now the company's rise continues with the Honor 5C , a new smartphone that maintains quality standards and good value the Honor family is known...

Good design ; Good battery life ; Improved EMUI software interface ; Good price-performance ratio ; Great price

Back cover scratches easily ; Disappointing display quality ; Average camera

What the Honor 5C does, it does well. For the price, it’s a bargain. Of course, we can’t expect miracles, especially not of the camera, but if you’re not hunting for the very best, you should seriously consider this phone.

Honor 5C review


The Moto G4 has a new low-cost rival

Great value ; Solid performance ; Strong screen for price

Part-metal frame isn't impressive ; Scatty camera focusing ; Poor low-light photos

The Honor 5C is a great budget phone to make the choice for buyers at this end of the market that much trickier. With a good set of cameras, a strong screen and no annoying performance issues, this a bargain.

Honor 5C preview: Affordable phone of the year?


While big budget phones get launched on an international stage, following a long campaign of leaks and teases, it's at the budget end of the spectrum where things are fiercely competitive. For the low asking price of £149, you really do get quite a lot...

Metal build, display, affordability

No fingerprint scanner, low internal storage capacity

Honor 5C review


It's quick and cheap, but the Honor 5C's uninspiring build quality and mediocre battery life leave it floundering
