The Honor 5C is a good smartphone that gets a lot right, but unfortunately, does not really have anything that sets it apart in competition. It offers good performance, camera, ergonomics, battery life, and is an overall pleasant device. The lack of frills make it a very simple, easy to use and convenient device, and is worthy of being considered at Rs. 10,999.

  • Terrific purchase
    Rufus Sam on | 01-06-2018

    I purchased this phone two years ago. But still it's in good condition. I dropped this phone above 20 times. But the hard case that I bought helped to keep it damage free. 13 MP camera is good. Battery (using net) will go upto 10 hours. Got Nougat update. I'm not a heavy game player, still play small games. Not that much hanging problem. Got VoLTE update. Don't have any touchscreen or display problem. I got this phone for 8549/- I'm satisfied with this phone and love using Huawei phones. *attached a pic of the backcover that I'm using.

  • Delightful
    Jatin Kaushik on | 01-10-2016

    Product Quality is awesome It feels very gudd while using an honor mobile 1-Camera quality is good 2-speaker volume is not that much as expected 3-Battery quality is good 4-Not for heavy gamers After all the mobile is quite NYC and won't disappoint u Go for it

  • Best in class
    Flipkart Customer on | 01-08-2016

    Pros: - Intuitive UI. - Design and build quality seems to be best in class. - Video and display quality is excellent. - Rear camera image quality is very good. - Quite fast performing processor. - Does not get heated much compared to the other class and even higher range smartphones. Cons: - Front camera is good only when placed in exact straight position, little variation in position seems to disproportionate the image. Neutral: - Audio quality seems to be just OK, not so great. - Battery backup is OK. When used with playing games, battery lasts for less than a day.

  • A gorgeous looking phone with an average camera.
    Abhishek Choudhury on | 01-07-2016

    Design and lookwise it is a fabulous phone .I have bought the golden colour and it looks very attractive and stylish . The brushed metal body adds to the looks of this phone.The Kirin octacore processor is pretty powerful for day to day tasks,but RAM should have been 3GB . You will get only about 900 MB out of 2GB. I don't play heavy games,so I can't tell about the gaming performance in detail . But the camera disappointed me a lot. As I read & watched so many reviews and many of the reviewers were saying that the camera is pretty good which gives out photos with very good detail. But in artificial light,there is no detail at all ! In daylight conditions also,the pictures showed grains. The colour reproduction is very good ,but details are missing . Let's look at some pros & cons of this phone : Pros: 1) Crisp display 2) Nice looking 3) Preety good battery backup. 4) Sunlight legibility is very good. 5)well-responsive fingerprint sensor. Cons: 1) average camera (both rear & front) 2) not sufficient RAM( keeping in mind the price ) 3) No earphone given 4) No screen protection glass. My impression: The only thing that disappointed me is the camera . Otherwise I am very happy with this phone.

  • Excellent mobile
    Srikanth M on | 01-07-2016

    Flipkart delivery is fast and I got in 1 day. Positive -------------- 1) Excellent design 2) Good processor's very fast no lag.. 3) Good battery life..moderate use will get 1.5 days. 4) Latest OS 5) Finger print scanner is 99% accurate.And you can use this for app lock, notifications and etc.. 6) call quality is excellent.. 7) No heating issues even if you play games also. 8) Excellent display.. 9) Sound clarity is good. 10) One hand UI feature. Negative ---------------- 1) Its have to buy gripping case 2) 2nd SIM card you can use as SD card. There is no separate SD card slot. 3) To charge 100% will take 2.30 to 3 hrs. 4) Camera quality is average both front and rare. 5) You will get only 10GB memory out of 16 GB. Above negative points are not major issues..So I will recommend this mobile to buy..

  • Great Phone
    Raghunath Kalakkunnath on | 01-07-2016

    Best phone in this price band. After one week usage, Iam very much happy with this phone. Pros and cons from my experience: Pros: 1. Super design and metallic body gives premium look. 2. Screen to body ratio is good 3. 13MP camera is super 4. LED Notification 5. Battery backup is excellent. I got more than 2Days with moderate internet usage and playing games. 6. No heating issues. 7. Super fast fingerprint scanner. Almost 100% successful rate in my experience. 8. Very fast and intuitive UI(EMUI4) with a number of themes. 9. Fine sensitive touchscreen 10. Android Marshmallow OS. Cons: 1. No apps drawer. Actually it is not a drawback. But as a long time Samsung user Iam acquainted with such UI. 2. No headset/Ear Phone 3. Dual sim is not possible in my case. Because I want to use 32GB memory card. We can use 2 Nano SIMs or 1 Nano SIM+SD Card. No seperate SD Card slot. Main disappointing feature of this phone. 4. No gorilla glass protection.

  • Best in class, go for it...
    George Fabian on | 01-07-2016

    Ordered this phone after watching all the reviews in youtube. Even though all the reviews were positive i dint expect this phone to be this good. Pros: *Good built quality and premium look. *Camera is excellent considering this price point. * Android marshmallow and smooth ui. * Display quality, viewing angles and sunlight legibility is quite good. * Good battery back up. * No heating issues at all. * Fingerprint sensor works like a charm Cons: *Lack of usb otg support and dedicated sim slot. *Emui lacks an app drawer( but u can always use a 3rd party launcher) *Just below 900 mb of ram free even after clearing all the apps.( Sufficient for normal day to day usage though ) *Lack of quick charging. *Loudspeaker is just average Conclusion: Even though it has some major cons, considering the price to performance factor and all the pros it has, its definitely the best buy if your budget is below 13k.

  • Very nice and cool phone
    Ramesh Jivani on | 01-07-2016

    Kirin processor is very very much Display is too good...... Battery backup is very nice No heating problems No hanging problems Very cool camera I am very happy....

  • Good Phone
    Shaikh Anas on | 01-07-2016

    Based on a days usage Pros: 1. Camera clarity is awesome. 2.Battery works like a charm. Very good battery management. 3.Build quality is premium. 4.Display is good. Gives real colors. Cons: 1. Not good for gamers. Games like asphalt 8 and NFS most wanted got lagged. 2.No RAM management only 700-900MB available. 3. SD adoption feature of Marshmallow does not work in this phone. Overall a good phone if you want it for normal usage not for heavy users. After one year use battery is dead. Honor should have given 1 year battery warranty.
