The Honor 3C is a Lot of Phone for a Little Money

By Gerald Lynch on at

Your pound really does go quite far these days if you're on the market for an Android phone or tablet. You've got the likes of the Hudl 2 on cut-price tablet shelves, and impressive handsets like the Moto G if you're after an affordable smartphone. Add the Honor 3C to the growing ranks of well spec'd blowers that won't break the bank then.

The second release from Huawei's spin-off brand, the Honor 3C costs just £109.99, and comes equipped with a 5-inch 720p display. A 1.3Ghz quad-core processor powers the show, backed by 2GB of RAM, with 8GB of internal storage and microSD card support for removable storage up to 32GB. Even the battery sounds quite good at a sizeable 2,300mAh, while the 8MP/5MP front and rear camera stats don't often appear on handsets this cheap.

There's a catch of course -- it's stuck running old-man Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, which will be weighed down with Huawei's own Emotion UI 2.0. While there's increasing room to be picky at this end of the market, the Android slip aside you should still feel no shame in being tempted by the Honor 3C. Up for pre-order from Amazon today, it'll ship by the end of the month.
