The Honor 5C Has Arrived in the UK

By Tom Pritchard on at

Tired of sticking with the same old smartphone brands that have been around forever? Pay attention, because Honor has just released its new 5C smartphone across Europe for the low, low price of £150.

That's pretty cheap for a smartphone, so what do you get for that money? Actually a fair bit, considering. The 5C comes with a 5.2-inch Full HD display, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage (expandable up to 128GB), An octa-core processor with four 2 GHz cores and four 1.7 GHz cores, a 3,000 mAh battery, an 8MP front camera, and 13MP rear camera.

It runs on Android Marshmallow, with Honor's EmUI 4.1 running over the top.

Honor added a few bits to the camera, including a macro lens for close-up shots, plus an anti-reflective coating to reduce glare and fingerprints smudges. The phone has also been drop tested from a 1.5 metre height to make sure it can handle all those time you accidentally drop it on the pavement. The body of the device is made from aluminium with an anodised coating designed to prevent corrosion and scratching.

All in all not such a bad set. Not the best specs out there, but all pretty reasonable for £150.

According to Honor the phone can be purchased now in gold, black, and silver. It's available from Honor's own online store, along with the likes of Amazon, Ebuyer, Clove, and Expansys.
