SummaryAt Rs 14,999, Huawei Honor 3C may not be the best looker, but it is among the better performers.

When I received this new phone for review, for a while I kept on wondering what company it is! The box just said ‘Honor’. Similarly, the rear section of the phone was branded as “Honor”. I went to “Settings” and nowhere was it apparent what brand it is until I reached the “Legal information” section that talked about Huawei Privacy Policy. Oh, so much for finding a brand name!

The Huawei Honor 3C is amongst the newest smartphones to hit the Indian market. Huawei claims the Honor 3C has been “specially designed to fulfil all the aspirations that you can have from a smartphone.” It further adds that, to make it possible, every feature of the phone has been enhanced—bigger screen, a better processor, a better camera and a stronger battery.

The Huawei Honor 3C comes with a 1.3 GHz QuadCore processor. No issues with this. In fact, although this is not among the best processors in the market, it works well in combination with the 2GB RAM. So, be it playing online games, downloading or watching streaming videos, or sending mails– the phone handles most tasks decently.

Now, let’s talk about the camera. The Honor 3C comes with an 8-megapixel Sony BSI camera. Huawei says the camera boasts of a Blue Glass Filter that gives you the luxury of choosing the desired hue for your photos. The camera clicks good and clear photos and the videos it
