6

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

The Honor 5C — a new budget-centric option from Huawei's Honor brand — landed in China last month, bringing surprisingly decent hardware specs at a staggeringly low price point. The Chinese version of the phone packs Huawei's homemade octa-core Kirin 650 chip, 2 or 3 gigabytes of RAM, a 5.2-inch 1080p display, fingerprint security and a 13-megapixel main camera, backed up by an 8-megapixel selfie shooter. The price? 899 yuan — that's around £100, or US$140.
