Huawei Honor 8C Review: Tries too Hard-to-Please

Honor 8C Review: Tries too Hard-to-Please

Design and Display:

The Honor 8C follows the Honor 8X and other Honor phones set up this year with their slope color design. Although it is not as blingy as the Honor 9N set up earlier, the Honor 8C is created to be more long-lasting. It alternated from glass to polycarbonate merely maintained the hatched color treatment. Honor calls up its ‘Cat’s Eye’ pattern as the sunrise blue edition forms shapes assured in the cat’s eye as reflected against flimsy. It is easily among the best-awaiting phones in its cost range and will contend against the Realme U1 in terms of the pattern.

Performance and Software:

The Snapdragon 632 that barons the Honor 8C is something we had searched forward to utilizing ever since it was declared. Putting back the Snapdragon 625, we anticipated the chipset to propose a few grievous upgrades. Equating against the Snapdragon 625-powered Redmi Y2 suggests a big encouragement in synthetic benchmark scores.

In a lot of ways than single, though, the Snapdragon 632 is quite similar to the Snapdragon 636 that barons the Redmi Note 6 Pro.

The same on the Honor 8C utilizes 8 Kryo 250 cores supported on 4 semi-custom Cortex-A73 cores and 4 semi-custom Cortex-A53 cores and made up on a 14nm FinFET procedure. That’s as is as the Kryo 260 on the Snapdragon 636., on this one, the L2 stash is slenderly lesser, and the max clock fastness is just up to 1.8GHz. It as well uses a more previous Adreno 506 GPU as equated to the Adreno 509 on the Snapdragon 636.

As a final result, although the Honor 8C is by all odds more influential than the most potent budget phone, the hardware specifications bring out that it is slenderly underpowered, likened to the Snapdragon 636-powered mid-rangers. It is unnecessary to say that it does not come close to the functioning of the Snapdragon 660 in the Realme 2 Pro, priced just now Rs 1,000 more.

Honor 8C Camera:

Honor’s cares to spotlight the back camera on its cell phone a lot, and even on the Honor 8C, the direction is mainly on the cameras that are endued with AI capacities. It is the 1st time an Honor 8c phone price worth Rs 11,999 boasts the AI camera moniker. It chucks out that the moniker is more a marketing device than anything valuable. The Honor 8C makes the best of a 13+2MP back camera setup.

Honor 8C Battery:

The Honor 8C bundles a boastful 4,000mAh battery that is beneficial for the cell phone. The 4,000mAh big battery is well-optimized to hand over one and a half day’s valuable of charge quickly. We got out 8 hours 20 mins of utilization on PCMark’s Work 2.0 Battery examination, which should turn to 2 days of utilization if you are utilizing the phone somewhat.

Bottom Line:

The Honor 8C is a practical phone to count on if you are not a power user. Although the phone does appear suitable for color handling, the presence of a bit much plastic might cast people off, but it actually should not. At any rate on paper, the functioning is almost as effective as that of the Redmi Note 6 Pro; merely the last mentioned is visibly more amenable all-inclusive. It is okay if you are not a gravid user, as this cell phone’s battery life is perfect.
