The brand Honor is known for aiming budget and mid-range segment, and the latest entrant from the company is no different. Honor also debuted in the tablet category with Honor T1 7.0 at INR 6,999.
Initially, the Dual SIM Honor 5C was announced back in April this year and released a month after in China. Since then, the phone was much-awaited to arrive in India.

The phone boasts a 16GB internal storage capacity that is expandable up to 256GB via a microSD card with no dedicated card slot as it uses SIM 2 slot. It packs a non-removable 3000 mAh battery.
Honor 5C has a 13 MP autofocus primary camera along with an LED flash. The camera deals with features such as geo-tagging, touch focus, face/smile detection, panorama, and HDR while holding the capability of recording 1080p videos at 30fps. The selfie camera stands at 8 MP resolution with f/2.0 aperture.
