I purchased honor 5c silver from flipkart and its performance is great in most aspects such as display,processing,cameras,fingerprint,calling,browsing and good battery backup while being slim and full hd. The phone has few drawbacks like no volte,no otg support,medium loudspeaker but still better than my cousins phones (yu yureka,Lenovo k3 note,meizu m2 note,xiaomi mi4i).
ShockieUK, 14 Feb 2017Great phone apart from lack of updates,still on 2016 May security...In march, at least here in spain, we will update to 7.0
Is it really 156 grams? It feels heavier. I have the European version, 7 lite.

AnonD-613136, 10 Feb 2017Is there any issue with touch on this phone? thanksI have this phone for like 5 months and I have no problem with display or touch
AnonD-631507, 04 Feb 2017Yes it doesn't support directly cause it lacks volte but if u install jio voice 4g app you'll ... moreI too am using Jio4Gvoice app on this phone, but I am not recieving inbound calls , whereas outbound calls just work fine.
Unfortunately had to buy a phone just before MWC, cause my old galaxy core has crapped the bed on call quality and battery life, so without a back up just phone and music device, I needed a proper device and fast. Nougat better drop on this phone, otherwise its perfect for the 160 I payed for. Fast running apps, ample amouny of ram always available, and the scrolling feels as smooth as a reliable snapdragon. EMUI is surprisingly better then I thought, and the lack of an app drawer is not so jarring as imagined. Only thing is if you want some punc to your music, power amp is the better option then Huawei's music app. Camera quality is something I can't be bothered with, but I guess its acceptable. Still sucks that I couldn't hold out long enough to buy a phone after the conference.
I have been using this phone over a year. I was originally trying to find a cheap phone that could run as good as the top phones, my brother recommended the honor 4C I was going to buy it off Amazon, but out of curiosity I searched for similar phones, in my search I found that the 5C wasn't that much more expensive than the 4C but the 5C was a absolute beast in terms of hardware.
Fast forward a year my brother has also bought the same phone (different colour) and is ana loving it. it runs flawlessly still and has a camera as good as (if not better) than the iPhone. it is by no means a phone for people who like to do extreme gaming, but if you enjoy a balanced experience, e.g. a bit of gaming, as well as watching videos and working on documents it is very good.
I would highly the Honor 5C as it is going to save you a lot more money and will definitely save you a lot more grief.
AnonD-631507, 04 Feb 2017I bought this phone a month ago. Good in every aspect but I'm always afraid that my camera wo... moreThe glass in front of the camera won't get scratched, unless you have keys or other objects in the same pocket you carry the phone in. If you put in on a desk or table it's fine. It has a metal border around it.
