Should you buy This?
Now let’s come to main point which is, should you really consider buying Huawei Honor 5C? If I would ask, probably I would say yes.

I mean what else we could expect in a smartphone at this price point? Please don’t take me wrong, I mean there are many other smartphones in the market right now with their own set of features and hardware built and at the similar price point, so why go with Honor 5C?

The answer could be its larger full HD 1080 x 1920 pixels resolution display size, I know that there are so many people who might not be interested in this screen size but according to me 5.2 display size is quite a good choice that provides a better viewing experience.

Other things are, a fingerprint scanner on the rear panel that lets you unlock your phone in just 0.5 a bigger battery life with 3,000 mAh battery and support for up to 256GB expandable memory.

So finally, Honor 5C could be a better choice at this price point with not all but many premium features. Let us know in the comments how would you consider this phone?
