  • Honor 8C sports a plastic body but it is quite well built and has a good in-hand feel. The gradient finish at the rear panel gives it a premium look and it comes in various attractive colors like Magic Night Black, Aurora Blue, Platinum Gold, Nebula Purple.
  • There is a small notch at the front. If you don’t like the notch, you can easily hide it via settings. At the back, there is a dual rear camera and a fingerprint scanner. The fingerprint scanner is easy to reach and works quite efficiently.
  • Honor 8C sports a 6.26-inch touchscreen display along with a resolution of 720x1520p at a PPI of 269 pixels per inch. It offers an FHD+ IPS LCD display with a 19:9 aspect ratio. Though the low PPI might seem like a drawback, it can be ignored as the visual effects are sharp with vivid color.
  • Honor 8C sports a 13MP+2MP Dual Rear camera. The 13MP primary camera has an aperture of f/1.8 whereas the 2MP depth sensor has an aperture of f/2.4. The camera works good in good-lighting conditions and clicks decent pictures in low-lighting conditions. The clicked pictures in the daylight and good-lighting conditions are crisp with clear details and vibrant colors. However, the pictures taken in the low-lighting conditions lacks color vibrancy. The portrait shots are good as well with sharp details. Honor 8C comes with Auto-focus, AI scene detection, HDR, and Pro mode.Honor 8C Pros and Cons image3
  • The 8MP front camera in Honor 8C comes with an aperture of f/2.0 and also sports soft flash. Soft flash allows you to adjust the brightness of the flash to three levels. This is a great option for taking selfies in different lights. The selfies taken is good with the nice amount of brightness and clear details.
  • The Honor 8C proudly sports the first Snapdragon 632 chip octa-core processor, with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. Another variant will be available as well with 3GB RAM and 32GB storage. This combination provides for a much better performance than that of the Honor 7C and the smartphones work smoothly even on the heavy games like Asphalt 8 and PUBG. Though a few lags were seen overall the performance was good.
  • Where Honor 7C has a 3000mAH battery, Honor 8C sports a bigger 4000mAH battery that will last for more than a day with heavy usage, without the need to charge it. And with the moderate use of the phone, the battery will easily last for more than a day and half.Honor 8C Pros and Cons image4
  • Honor 8C runs Android 8.1 Oreo with Honor’s own EMUI 8.2 skin on top. The EMUI 8.2 is quite efficient and works nicely with the Android 8.1.

Honor 8C: Cons

Here are the cons or disadvantage to buying Honor 8C-

  • The gradient finish back panel though is very attractive, it easily gets fingerprint smudges which leads you to wipe the back again and again. However, this problem will not be there if you use a back cover.
  • The EMUI 8.2 though is quite efficient it’s also quite bloated. There are lots of preinstalled apps that you cannot uninstall and this is quite frustrating.
  • The camera’s though decent are not as per the claims of Huawei. Though the cameras work fine in the good lighting condition, in the low light, the quality is considerably reduced with lost of focus and a bit of noise in the pictures. If we talk about the camera’s of the Honor 8C, there are still many things left to be desired.
  • Though performing day to day tasks on Honor 8C is quite smooth, the smartphone lags a bit when performing some heavy task, like switching in between the apps when there are lots of them running in the background. Also when running the heavy apps like PUBG, it does lag a bit. But as mentioned before, it is not very much notable and thus can be ignored of the price of Honor 8C is not too high.

So this was our take on the advantages and disadvantages of the latest Honor 8C, read further for our final words on whether or not you should buy this smartphone.

Final Thoughts on Honor 8C

This smartphone by Huawei is amazing in the looks and will make you want to flaunt your phone. The color variants are pretty attractive too and you will have great options to choose from. The performance of Honor 8C is also pretty good and though lags a bit, it is not noticeable. Also, the battery life is quite good and even with a large battery, the smartphone is lightweight.

But the cameras have been a real disappointment as Honor 8C could have done much better in this segment. The low lighting condition pictures are average at best and there is a lot left to be desired. Also, the  EMUI 8.2 comes with a bloat that might prove a bit annoying. Though quite efficient, Honor 8C is going to get a tough competition from the smartphones like Nokia 5.1 Plus, Realme 2, Xiaomi Redmi 6 Pro, etc.
