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


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 review


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

The Honor 5C excels when it comes to speed, but fails to excel in any other regard. Even its camera, which is arguably the phone's only other strong suit, is rather hit and miss depending on lighting conditions. The biggest issue here, though, is the...

Honor 5C Review: In Depth


Honor 5C review: Honor is gunning hard for best affordable smartphone of 2016 with the new Honor 5C, but does it make the grade?

Great camera experience ; Premium design touches ; Good performance ; Solid battery life

Lacklustre video performance ; Screen is a little washed out ; Fingerprint prone screen ; Middling design

The Honor 5C presents itself as an unassuming, middling Android handset, but you’ll quickly realise that it’s full of surprises. Great performance, battery life and cameras elevated the 5C above our expectations and at.

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 SmartPhone 5C


Not a name I had heard of until shortly after the launch of the Huawei P9 when I found out this was a sister company, so when I received an invite to a breakfast briefing I accepted, I am not keen on rush hour travel at my age and when the venue is...

The operating system is Android 6 the latest version and overlaid by EMUI 4.1. The with free delivery as per the link below. For some reason the silver and grey colours are £32 more expensive.

Huawei Honor 5C Handset : Huawei Honor 5C


It was a rainy day in London as I made my way to find out more about the latest Honor handset.

The Honor 5C’s performance is more than adequate especially when compared against similarly priced handsets. Loading apps and scrolling through images and websites was fine although I would have preferred more of a reluctance of the screen to gather...

Honor 5C Review


The Honor 5C is a cheap phone which makes very few compromises, making for a great all-rounder if you're on a budget. However, there's no real standout feature".

+ Stylish design ; + Smooth performance ; + Strong screen

- Emotion UI ; - No standout features ; - Fingerprint scanner is MIA

The Honor 5C is a remarkable handset. Usually there are at least some compromises made when keeping a phone’s cost down but here there aren’t really. Sure it doesn’t have flagship specs and nor is it quite as premium as a high-end phone, but that was...
