Honor 4c user for 1 year
Should you buy this phone? My answer is NO.
In the first 4 month you would find this phone is quite good, but over time you would be really, really unsatisfied.
My main problem is with the memory. I'm not photogenic and I take very very few photos. I'm not a gamer and had only install light games (untill I have to uninstall them for lack of memory and left none of any games) Nowadays 8gb of internal memory is a nightmare for even moderate users. You should opt for 16gb internal at least. THIS IS A VERY BIG PROBLEM
Problem 2 is not having 4g lte support. I find it quite anoyying if I had to be on my mobile data as it would be very slow connection, even in Kuala Lumpur I only get H+ connections rarely. It often shows 2g commection which is really slow. I think the receptors are to blame as other phones have none of this problem.
Problem 3 is the lags and hang. You would find this phone great and fast first but trust me it would be really bad over time. It would lag when opening google maps, occasionally when openinh whatsapp and sometimes when browsing the web.
Problem 4 is the emotion UI is very bad at Icons design. Most of The icons is not compatible with the UI and results in hideous cut of the original icons with green filling the gaps in between. If you're looking for a decent design in icons like me, this is a bad thing. However, the design of interface like dropdown menu, home page, lock screen, camera interface, is very good actually, I would give this 5 stars.
Problem 5 is the battery life. If you're not in the presence of charging ports,have no powerbanks, and uses the phone constantly -checking whatsapp, browsing webs etc more than 7-12 hours- you are as good as dead. (At least your phone is dead) the phone does come with ultra power saving mods which basically turn this phone to a nokia 3310, but you would not find this helpful except very little. (Like extending the battery life for 3 hours). I would regularly charge my phone 2-3 times a day on constant use of social apss non stop, no use of camera.
Problem 6 is the image quality, I wouldn't actually care bcause I'm not a fan of taking pictures, but if you are a fan of selfies and taking pictures then this might be your second or first problem. The quality is not so decent as the color is actually bad. But in great light condition and perfect filters (built in) it may look good. But occasionally it is not very satisfying.
Problem 7 is the thickness. I find it quite thick when put in a tpu plastic cover and without the case it feels normal but not thin.
At this point I really recommend you to opt for other phones which has about the same price tag from xiaomi for example, like in my country Malaysia xiaomi 3 pro is about this phone price with much more advantages like fingerprints, 4k battery, Ir blaster, etc being offered at directd.com.my or flash plus 2 which is also great with about rm50 in difference.

I've been using 4c for more than one year now, the battery in my opinion is not very good, it would only last for half a day on constant use (wifi and social media non stop) and I would say it might perform worst when gaming (I don't game) the memory itself is very small and unsufficient (that's why I don't game) first of all, to install any games - you would find it great on the first 4 month but it will get worse untill u have to uninstall every games and some apps just too make sure your phone doesnt lag. At this price tag I really recommend you to opt for other phones.
