The best budget phone of Huawei actually started towards the end of last year, with the introduction of the latest in the Honor 7 series – the Honor 7X:

Large 5.93-inch with Fullview display, an exquisite metal body, fast performance, dual 16MP+2MP primary camera are some of the things that you will get out of just a USD 199 smartphone.

Now then, what is it in store for us with the Honor 7C? Here you go with its specs:

  • 5.99-inch HD IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen with 720 x 1440 pixels, 18:9 ratio or ~269 ppi density)
  • Fullview Display
  • Metal body
  • Fingerprint sensor
  • Qualcomm SDM450 Snapdragon 450 chipset, Octa-core 1.8 GHz Cortex-A53 processor, Adreno 506 graphics and 3GB/4GB RAM
  • Dual 16MP+2MP primary camera with phase detection autofocus and LED flash
  • 8MP secondary camera with LED flash
  • 32GB/64GB internal storage + microSD expansion slot up to maximum 256GB
  • Android Oreo 8.0
  • Non-removable Li-Ion 3000 mAh battery
  • Dual-sim and 4G LTE
  • March 2018 release date
  • USD 189 price tag

Based on paper alone, we can see that the 7C was supposed to be a scaled-down version of the Honor 7X. What it means is, the price tag should be proportionately cheaper as well. But that doesn’t seem to be the case.

For starters, the Honor 7C is sporting a slightly bigger 5.99-inch IPS screen but with just a High Definition resolution.

More screen real estate, but less sharp than it is supposed to be. Everything else is still there, like the Fullview display, sleek metal body and fingerprint sensor.

Regarding performance, a different chipset altogether is used with the Snapdragon 450 chipset can be found under the hood of the Honor 7C. Then we can find the fast octa-core processor paired with good graphics and either 3GB or 4GB RAM.

Moving on to the camera, the same dual 16MP+2MP camera combination is there on the Honor 7C – which is nice. The 8MP selfie camera ups the ante with an LED flash, so you can take better-looking photos even when in the dark.

Storage-wise, you can opt for either 32GB or 64GB of internal storage. Whichever option that you choose, it can easily be expanded up to a maximum of 256GB via the expansion slot.

One clear advantage that the Honor 7C has, is the fact that it is running on the latest Android Oreo 8.0 operating system right out of the box.

A 3000 mAh-rated battery is then available, that can easily supply enough juice for it to last for a full day of charge.

Conclusion:

What can we say other than the fact the Huawei Honor 7C costs just USD 10 less than the Honor 7X. Larger 5.99-inch IPS screen but with a High Definition resolution, 8MP selfie camera with LED flash and the latest operating system doesn’t seem to bring justice to it.

Huawei Honor 7C is currently available for USD 189 and comes in Black, Red, Blue and Gold colours.
