Honor 5C hands-on: Performance on a budget

13
Honor 5C

Honor's latest brings solid specs and decent construction at a highly affordable price point.

The past year has seen Honor, Huawei's online-focused sub-brand, building out a range of highly focused, highly affordable handsets at various price points. The Honor 7 and Honor 5X were part of the growing trend throughout 2016 of lower-priced phones being able to go toe-to-toe with more expensive competitors in many areas. And although neither device was perfect, they were worth contenders.

Now Honor's back with a new handset aimed at the entry-level space, the Honor 5C. Unlike last year's Honor Holly, the 5C brings the fundamentals of the premium construction we've seen from other Huawei-made devices, and combines it with a new, efficient CPU, a Full HD display and a promising camera.

Are all Androids created equal? How hardware plays a part

36

Does hardware matter when all Androids run the same operating system?

Some of the recent high-end Androids — like the Galaxy S7 or the LG G5 — pack some amazing technology under their glass face. Eight core processors and gigabytes of RAM, combined with dual-band ac WiFi radios and 16 core graphics are specifications that most computers didn't have just a few years ago. Some of us get really caught up in the race for newer and better hardware, while others aren't concerned at all and just want to get on Facebook, but most of us fall somewhere in the middle. We want a phone that does it all, doesn't struggle to do any of it and doesn't break the bank.

So let's talk about the hardware that is inside our phones for a bit.

Honor's latest packs impressive specs, metal construction, fingerprint security — and could be shockingly cheap.
