A new big-batteried budget phone to consider?
With the budget segment becoming more competitive than ever, Honor made sure it has a strong offering with the Honor 8C. Making their offering unique is a Snapdragon 632 processor that is paired with a 4000mAh battery. The said combo makes the Honor 8C a potential battery beast—and it gets better since it comes with fast charging as well.
You get a decent set of cameras with the Honor 8C with an 8-megapixel front camera with LED flash and a dual rear camera setup consisting of a 13-megapixel f/1.8 main camera and 2-megapixel depth sensor. For the display, you get a 6.26-inch IPS panel with HD+ resolution.
For the build, you are getting a polycarbonate unibody build that has a matte gradient finish—a welcome touch amidst phones with glossy finishes.
