Reviews for the Honor 8C

Huawei Honor 8C 64GB Review
Source: Think Digit English
The Honor 8C is a good phone to consider if you’re not much of a power user. While the phone does look good because of the colour treatment, the presence of too much plastic might put people off, but it really should not. The performance, at least on paper, is almost as good as that of the Redmi Note 6 Pro, but the latter is visibly more responsive across the board. It’s fine if you’re not much of a heavy user, as the battery life is particularly good on this phone.

The Honor 8C does little to stand out in a segment populated by highly competent smartphones such as the Asus ZenFone Max Pro M1 (Review) and Nokia 5.1 Plus (Review). Honor has tried to deliver a solid all-rounder, but in doing so, has produced a phone that does not excel in any particular area.

Honor 8C ₹ 11,999 is all set to be launched in India this week, just six months after the launch of the Honor 7C. Powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 632 SoC, the new smartphone features AI-enhanced cameras, a notched display, and Android 8.1 Oreo out-of-the-box. To recall, it was launched in China last month. The Honor 8C is expected to be launched in two variants, one with 4GB of RAM and 32GB of storage, and the other with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. We got to spend some time with the latter variant of the Honor 8C before its official India launch - scheduled for November 29 - and here are our first impressions.

Honor 8C first impressions: Just a chipset upgrade doesn’t cut it
Source: The Times of India English
The Honor 8C seems to be an important product for he company but it doesn’t offer anything new other than the chipset. Its display and design aren’t up to the mark as expected from Honor smartphones. An IANS report suggests the Honor 8C will be priced around Rs 15,000. If so, then the smartphone will face fierce competition from phones like Realme 2 Pro and the newly launched Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro.

Qualcomm Adreno 506: Integrated graphics card in the Snapdragon 625 SoC and based on the new 500-series architecture with support for Vulkan, OpenGL ES 3.1 + AE (3.2) and UBWC. Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.

Only a few smartphones have larger screens.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

Only few smartphones are more lightweight than this.


Honor:

In 2014 Huawei created the sub brand Honor and offers certain smartphone series under this name. Occasionally the products are also called Huawei Honor.

The market share of Honor products is manageable, but there are several reviews on Honor smartphones with average ratings (as of 2016).


76.5%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
