It was only a month ago when Honor 5C went on its first sale on Flipkart, and the device has garnered an excellent attention over that time among mid-range enthusiast. While we see new handsets being launched every day, it is easy to forget even good handsets, if the companies are non-stop launching handsets every week. India is a country that witnesses the constant announcement of smartphones; the highest announcement comes for a mid-range smartphone that is priced around Rs 10-15K.
Today in this post we are bringing back the attention to as why Honor 5C is still the best mid-range handset to purchase till date and even in future. Below you can see the top five reasons to buy Honor 5C smartphone.
Sporting an ergonomic design language, the device feels pretty stylish in looks. Many brands these days claims that their handsets are full metal constructed, but when analyzed, that isn’t the case for most handsets. While it can be said that Honor 5C is truly a smartphone with aircraft-grade aluminum alloy construction. Moreover, it has ridged edges that offer grip thus making it quite easy to hold on to the device. The brand also claims that it has applied a scratch-resistant anodized coating, which also ensures protection from corrosion as well as wear and tear.
The display on Honor 5C is quite fantastic with its viewing angles and color reproduction. There is a 5.2-inch real estate available here, which can be quite impressive when it comes to viewing videos as well as basic content. It’s all look vivid. Note that the display has a 1080p resolution, which counts to a pixel density of 424 PPI (Pixel Per Inch). It is quite on par with the current scenario in the mid-range. You can manually control the color temperatures according to your need, although, I would recommend sticking with default settings. The display doesn’t extend to cover the bezels, but despite that it has a 74% screen-to-body ratio.
There aren’t lots of companies who focus on the real-life performance of their handset. The only handful of them dedicates their hard work to create a handset that is actually useful rather than fighting the specs war. Honor 5C is one such handset that touts its experience rather than the specs. Though, let’s talk briefly about the hardware installed on the device. Well, the 5C packs 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, which is a fast eMMC 5.1 flash-memory chip, ensuring the seamless data transfer and load. Talking about the chipset, it is powered by the revolutionary Kirin 650 processor that uses 16nm chip technology. It not only delivers high performance with its big.LITTLE architecture but also promises efficient usage of power. Regarding graphics, Mali-T830 is at work for anything that demands graphics. Overall, I would say that Honor 5C offers the best-in-class performance as well as power efficiency.
The camera setup on this handset is one of the most impressive we have encountered in months. You get a 13-megapixel resolution image sensor on the rear, which is equipped with BSI sensor. The 78-degree wide angle 5P lens offers best macro shots that we have seen from any 13MP shooter. The company has ensured that despite a little camera bump on the back, the lens shouldn’t get damaged. All thanks to the oleophobic coating on it. While talking about the front facing module, it is an 8-megapixel image sensor, which is just a stunning snapper. It is also accompanied by a BSI sensor and note that the lens you’ll see are 77-degree wide-angle lens. So, expect wider selfie shots, as no group member would feel left out. All in all, this is best-in-class camera setup for a mid-range handset.
Well, you might be wondering if it is so perfect mid-range handset, then how much is the battery capacity on it and is it good or not. I would very much like to clear your doubts about the battery details on the Honor 5C. You get a 3000 mAh capacity battery, which is not only considerably good amount according to the hardware specs, such as a 5.2-inch display. But it is also the most efficient one. All thanks to the Kirin 650 chipset, which is the most power efficient processor in this range. You expect good battery life as EMUI app management is fantastic. It doesn’t waste the battery life of the device.
Now you know why Honor 5C is such a good choice when it comes to buying a mid-range handset in India.
