Genuine all-rounders are rare even in tech. Just like in cricket, you get stars who excel at one thing or the other, but all-rounders? Nah, it’s really hard to find one. But when they do come along, they tend to really make up for making us wait!
Your hunt for the next great gadget isn’t made any easier by the fact that no gadget has ever really excelled at everything. Until now. You see, there’s a new smartphone in town, and it’s a proper one-in-a-million star - something that’s a winner across the board.
Amazing battery life
Most smartphones never really give you great battery life. Sure, they come with massive batteries (that take ages to charge) but even then you never really see the gains you’re promised. But the Honor 5C is very different. It’s got a sizeable 3000mAh battery which is pretty large in itself. But it doesn’t just rely on brute force (battery size) to deliver hours upon hours of use.
No, this is a smart kid we’re talking about. It’s got a super-efficient Kirin 650 processor that runs cool and sips power. And then, there’s EMUI 4.1 and its SmartPower 3.0 optimisations, which make sure power is managed in a rather smart manner. So, even if you’re trying to book an Uber late at night or want to take one final sunset photo on the beach, you’re guaranteed to have enough juice left.
A crisp, clear display
The Honor 5C’s 5.2in full HD display is a beauty, all right. It’s got wide viewing angles, a super-fast touch response, and gives you crisp text and vibrant, true-to-life colours. Gamer or workaholic, it’s exactly what you need. Your games appear larger than life (even when you’re playing the latest hit while the boss bores you to death with Powerpoint), movies come alive whether you’re relaxing by a campfire or are on a long flight back home, and typing or reading text is so effortless that you won’t mind shooting out a dozen emails before starting your vacation.
And then, there’s the brightness. You know how strong the sun can be, especially during summer. Luckily, the 5C is well-prepared and can boost brightness to a level that makes it easy for you to see what’s on its screen! Games, emails and even Twitter, it’s all possible even as you take a coffee break after lunch.
Multitasking? Games? Of course
Don’t for a second think that the Honor 5C gets its stellar reputation from just its smart nature. You want brute strength? You got it! A 64-bit, octa-core Kirin 650 processor paired with 2GB RAM and eMMC 5.1 storage means there’s enough turbocharged performance for your revv-happy users.
Apps launch in an instant, multitasking is easy, and the cool-running Kirin 650 never shows signs of lag. And thanks to its Mali T830 GPU, even gamers are left with a smile on their face. And before you wonder how much storage space there is, rest easy, ‘cos with 16GB onboard and up to 128GB expandable, there’s enough for plenty of movies as well!
The Honor 5C’s cameras provide another ‘oh cool’ moment. At the rear is a 13MP, f/2.0 camera with a 78-degree wide angle lens. The wide aperture gives you dreamy snaps perfect for Instagram, while the wide lens makes sure you don’t miss out any bit of the breathtaking sunsets in the Himalayas. In essence, it’s the perfect camera for a travel addict - great low-light performance, a proper, manual ‘Pro’ mode and SmartImage 3.0 processing. But you know what, you can use it for work, too - scan documents, save business cards, and even volunteer to take the photos at your next office picnic (hey, at least it’ll get you out of playing silly games).
Even if you’re more the selfie kind, fear not, as the 5C’s 8MP front camera is a gem as well. A 77-degree wide angle lens gets in the whole gang, automatic scene recognition makes sure every shot is a keeper, and there’s a Prime Image Processor to make sure every photo comes alive!
