The Huawei Honor 4C was launched in April 2015 and featured as yet another smartphone from the Chinese manufacturer focused on capturing the budget segment. Let’s see if this time Huawei has finally managed to make a decent budget smartphone.
The phone has a decent appearance, but the only observable downside is that it tends to slip frequently if improperly handled. The phone looks good, all thanks to the high-quality plastic that is used to make this phone. The back of the phone has textured design, which provides a novel look to the phone. The camera with LED flash light is provided at the top left of the back panel while the power button and the volume buttons are provided at the right edge of the phone. The MicroUSB port is provided at the bottom of the phone, and the 3.5mm audio jack is provided at the top of the phone.The phone is chunky, as it weighs 162 grams and so cannot be used for long stretches of time. The Non-removable 2550 mAh battery provided in the phone works great.
The Huawei Honor 4C features a 5 inches LCD capacitive touchscreen that provides a screen resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels. The phone has 294 pixels per inch, thus producing a crisp and natural display. The viewing angles are not that great, and the colors seem to wash out when the screen is seen from different angles. Also, the screen appears to be dull, even at maximum brightness setting. The display can pose a problem in bright sunlight as the sunlight legibility is not good either. However, at the budget price tag, you won’t complain much about the screen.
The phone is powered by a unique HiSilicon Kirin chipset clocked to 1.2 GHz Octa-core processor, and 2 GB of RAM. The phone runs on Android OS version 4.4.2 (KitKat), with a planned upgrade to version 6.0 (Marshmallow), with the help of Huawei’s Emotion UI 3.0 skin. The phone comes with an 8 GB internal memory while the memory can be expanded to 32 GB by its users using the MicroSD card slot provided in the phone. The Huawei Honor 4C has a powerful processor that optimizes hardware and software performance, thus enabling its users to have an ultimate Android experience. Videos and games are played without any lag, and its performance is comparable to high-end flagship phones. The Emotion UI running on the phone has cool features like the Suspend button. One thing to note is that the UI doesn’t feature an app drawer while the pre-installed apps are kept to a bare minimum.
The 13 MP rear camera provided in the phone is assisted by an LED flashlight while the front shooter is provided with 5MP. HD video recording is done by the camera at frames like 1080p@30fps. Talking about the rear camera, we must tell you that it’s a fast shooter. You can easily focus the camera in no time and capture some amazing pics. The images snapped by the rear camera are full of details and look natural. You will not find any barrel distortion or chromatic aberration in the photos. Images snapped in dim lights are share-worthy, but they do attract some noise. Overall, the rear camera works great. The front camera, too, captures some pretty interesting selfies. One thing that we disliked in the phone was the fact that the speakers, as well as the earpiece, had low sound even at maximum sound level.
The Huawei Honor 4C is powered by a non-removable 2550 mAh Li-Ion battery that works decently. By using the various power saving profiles present in the software, you can extend the battery life considerably. The battery works just like average smartphones present in its segment. Talking about connectivity options, the phone does not support 4G that might be a deal breaker for many smartphone users. The phone does support Bluetooth v4.0, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Hotspot, Wi-Fi Direct, and FM radio.
Talking about the Pros and Cons of the phone. The phone has an ultra fast processor that provides a power packed performance. You can play heavy games and videos without any problem. The camera performance is again noteworthy, not only the camera can focus instantly on objects, but the picture quality is also fantastic. Also, being a budget segment smartphone, you won’t have to shell out a fortune to buy this phone.
If we talk about the negative aspects of the phone, then the first thing to note is the sub-par display. Not only the colors seem to wash out when viewing angles are changed, but the phone also suffers from sunlight legibility, too. Talking about the physical aspect, the phone seems to be a little too chunky. Some users might find this irritating if they tend to use their smartphone a lot. Also, the phone doesn’t support 4G, which single-handedly is the biggest drawback with this smartphone.
Huawei Honor 4C possesses high-end flagship features with decent battery life. With its blazingly fast processor, good camera performance and affordable price tag, it qualifies as one of the one of the best affordable smartphone present in the market.
