Huawei caught the world’s attention for manufacturing some of the best Nexus devices we have seen till date and that it when the sales for its Honor range of smartphones went up too. Not very long after that, Huawei has come up with another premium smartphone named the Honor 5C that we will be talking about today. We got to spend some time with this gem of a smartphone and here’s our first impression of the smartphone.
Display & Design
The first thing we noticed and admired about the Honor 5C was its all metal unibody that really stands out. The smartphone feels sturdy in the hand and also boasts of a 5.2 inch full HD screen that catches one’s attention.
During the short time span we spent with the Honor 5C, the full HD display did not fail to impress us. The colors were really vibrant and we had no problem viewing the content on the screen from a wide range of angles. However, the bare screen seemed to be a bit reflective.
The rounded edges of the smartphone make for a device that is easy to carry in your pockets and handle. The back of the smartphone houses the Honor branding along with the 13 MP camera and the fingerprint sensor whereas the right grill houses the power button and volume rocker keys. The left side of the grill has the hybrid SIM/SD card tray. The 3.5 mm audio jack sits on the top of the device while the microUSB port rests on its bottom.
Camera and Performance
Even though it is too early to say anything about the device’s performance as we didn’t get to spend much time with the device, we tried to test the device as much as we could and we’ve gotta say that the device worked very fluently. It runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow operating system with Honor’s skin applied over it. Like most UI these days, the Honor UI also incorporated the app drawer into the home screen. Running the UI is Huawei’s in-bred HiSilicon Kirin 650 chipset paired with 2 GB of RAM.
Talking about the 13 MP rear camera with autofocus, geo-tagging, touch focus and face/smile detection features we were quite impresses with the pictures that came out. The camera doesn’t take long to focus, the pictures come out bright with negligible noise in moderate lighting conditions and the color reproduction was just brilliant. The 8 MP snapper on the front too works just fine. We tried it out by clicking some selfies that turned out to be very good.
Even though it is too early to say anything about the Honor 5C without spending some more time with it and reviewing it fully, if we had to pass a quick judgement we’d say that with a price tag of Rs. 10,499 the Honor 5C is not that a bad choice. Stay tuned for the full length review of the device.
