Appearance and ergonomics
If the front of Honor 5C looks quite simple and familiar, then the rear panel is frankly a joy. Thanks to the ergonomic design, it is comfortable to hold the gadget in your hand. This budget model uses a solid all-metal aluminum body. At the same time, the surface of the metal was subjected to special polishing, which allowed the body to remain not so slippery.
Thanks to the touch navigation buttons, the manufacturer has saved useful space under the screen. The device turned out to be relatively compact and light, because its weight is only 156 grams, and the thickness of 8.3 mm remains within reason. Notably, the anodized coating prevents scratches from remaining on the body. The Honor 5C colors are silver, gold and gray.
Fans of high-quality images will not be disappointed in the Huawei Honor 5C, because its 5.2-inch screen deserves special praise. The display got a chic Full HD resolution, which is rarely seen in inexpensive smartphones. In place was also oleophobic coating, and the absence of an air layer eliminates the problem of excessive glare. The IPS matrix has excellent brightness, as well as good contrast.
Iron and performance
Even a budget smartphone can be fast. Huawei Honor 5C with its excellent Kirin 650 processor confirms this. In AnTuTu the device scores 53000 points, which is an excellent indicator in its class. Almost all games can be played comfortably, and with high graphics settings. This became a reality because of the advanced Mali-T830 graphics system, as well as the increased frequency of the chip – 2000 MHz.
The Honor 5C has 2GB of RAM, and another 16GB are provided for internal storage. Memory can be expanded up to 256 GB with microSD cards. The operating system is Android 6 with the proprietary EMUI 4.1 shell, which leaves only a positive user experience.
For its level, the 13-megapixel camera in the Huawei Honor 5C is of very high quality. It uses a single-color flash and competent autofocus, which works as correctly as possible with each frame. Therefore, in good light, you can count on amazing shots, worthy of respect.
Of course, in the evening the situation changes somewhat, and the photos are faded and the detail drops. The front 8-megapixel camera, which has an impressive aperture ratio of 2.0, does not disappoint either.
- Quiet sound.
- No fingerprint scanner in the European version of the device.
- No NFC in Chinese version of the device.
Review huawei honor 5c
Huawei Honor 5C was announced at the end of April 2020. This smartphone belongs to the budget class, and in terms of features it is ahead of many competitors. But the device has other interesting features, which will be described below.
- High performance.
- Awesome screen.
- Fresh platform.
- Metal body.

Communication and sound
The conversation speaker in Honor 5C is a solid five. The interlocutor can always be heard well, and the advanced noise suppression system here works actively to make the user’s voice heard very clearly. But the main speaker suffers from low volume, although the manufacturer assures you that it uses a special amplifier. In headphones the sound is quite ordinary, without any miracles.
The Huawei smartphone supports a wide range of LTE, 2G and 3G frequencies. The standard set of wireless interfaces includes Bluetooth 4.1 and Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n. A nice bonus was the presence of the NFC chip.
