    Premium design with metal body

    The Honor 5C features a premium unibody design with its fully metallic build. This design gives it a premium feel like the ones on the high-end smartphones. The rear of the phone is glossy and it has a smooth finish, but it fails to offer a great grip when held.

    Great hardware powers the phone

    Huawei has used the in-house HiSilicon Kirin 650 octa-core processor in the Honor 5C and it is teamed up with 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of internal storage capacity that can be expanded up to 128 GB using a micro SD card. This processor and RAM combination should be able to handle graphics and multitasking smoothly.

    Camera specs are decent

    The Honor 5C boasts a 13 MP rear-facing camera with LED flash and f/2.0 aperture. While the main camera seems to be standard, there is an 8 MP front camera with f/2.0 aperture lens that should be great to capture selfies even in low light conditions.

    There's no Protective Coating

    While the Gorilla Glass protection is flaunted by many smartphones in the mid-range market segment, the Honor 5C lacks the protective coating. This might make the display prone to scratches and damage on everyday usage.

    Battery is good but non-removable

    As the smartphone has a unibody design, there is a non-removable battery under its hood. However, this battery is huge enough 3000 mAh capacity that gives it a good battery backup of one day.
