Honor 3C Overview
For The Brave. Honor is a new name in the smartphone industry and one looking to shake things up. It takes a brave contender to go toe-to-toe with giants, however that's exactly what Honor's #forthebrave campaign and brand is all about.
Honor provide modern devices built to a high standard with top-quality components, yet without any of the extra costs associated with big name brands. These are smartphones to do everything you need, without extra features, technology and advertising behind them that you don't need. You won't find an Honor store - they just have great phones and a support team.
Behind the scenes of Honor you will find the communications technology specialist Huawei. Huawei are there to lend credence to the brand and get the products to market, however the Honor arm of their smartphone range is entirely separate from Huawei's own branded phones.
With Huawei's know-how and manufacturing expertise, you can be confident that an Honor phone has high quality hardware; although Honor as a new start-up brand is an entirely unique team. For European customers for instance, the support is entirely localised and offset from Huawei's main mobile division.
The Honor 3C has a decent mid-range specification; whilst it won't be setting any new benchmarks it is still a powerful day-to-day handset, more than capable of getting you though the day and entertaining you as well.
The power comes from a 1.3 GHz quad-core processor and 2GB of RAM. With Android 4.2 JellyBean (updates expected), and this specification, you can be assured of running the latest apps and games.
Aside from performance, many are looking for a top-notch screen and camera. The 5 inch IPS high definition LCD display on the 3C delivers up to 16 million unique colours and sharp images. You will also find an 8 megapixel main camera with LED flash, next to a huge 5 MP selfie and video call camera on the front.
Inside is 8GB of memory and for those who carry a lot of documents and media on the go, take advantage of the microSD memory card slot for cards up to 32GB.
For those with a business number and a personal number or maybe a number for when you are in the UK and another for when you are in Europe, the Honor 3C is ideal. It has dual SIM support. No longer do you need a basic feature phone or to carry two handsets, combine them both into one and manage them easily with the settings Honor offer.
The quality of this product and what it offers only really shows itself when you handle the device. Available in both Black and White colour options, this is a cheap phone really.
