The HONOR 8C can now be purchased for as low as Rs 8,999 during Flipkart Big Diwali Sale this Diwali. If you’ve been eyeing a new smartphone to buy that doesn’t burn a hole in your pocket and leave you penniless during Diwali, you should definitely consider the HONOR 8C because it has all the makings of a good smartphone.
The HONOR 8C satisfies five pillars of smartphone performance. It has a big screen for better viewing experience, top-notch build quality and dust-proof design, a fast Snapdragon processor that can handle all tasks, a dual-camera setup on the rear that can click attractive images, and a large-capacity battery that can last more than a day on a single charge. If you are still not convinced about buying the HONOR 8C, let us have a look at some of its best features in detail.
Big Bezel-Less Screen for Big Entertainment
The HONOR 8C has a 6.26-inch (15.9 cm) IPS LCD screen with an HD+ resolution, which makes it good enough for a wide variety of smartphone use cases, including watching HD videos, playing mobile games, browsing the web, or just scrolling through your favorite apps. Since it is an IPS LCD panel, it features wide viewing angles, so no matter what way you are looking from at the HONOR 8C’s screen, it shows good colors and brightness. Plus, the bezels surrounding the screen are quite thin, so the phone fully utilizes its screen real estate.
The screen also features TUV Rheinland certification for its Eye-Care mode that reduces blue light for reduced eye strain while using the phone at night.
Top-Notch Build Quality & Dust-Proof Design
A phone should last long and have a reliable design so that even when a phone is dropped or is in an unideal condition, it should not have any issues. The front of the phone is entirely covered by a scratch-resistant glass panel that protects the screen from scratches and scuffs, inherently increasing the phone’s lifespan. There’s a capacitive fingerprint reader on the phone’s rear and it is placed at an ergonomic position, making it fast and easy to unlock the device without compromising its security. The Face Unlock works really fast and even in low light conditions because of the LCD light compensation feature. You will not find this even in high-end smartphones.
Fast Snapdragon Processor for Effortless Performance
The HONOR 8C runs the Android 8.1 operating system with EMUI 8.2 customizations and loads of software features. Since the HONOR 8C features the Snapdragon 632 processor, you can have full faith in the smartphone’s performance. The Snapdragon 632 chipset has eight 64-bit Kryo 250 CPU cores clocked at 1.8GHz and Adreno 506 GPU. This processor can handle all day-to-day tasks with ease and even play some high-end games with satisfactory frame rates at HD resolution. There is 4GB of RAM and there is up to 64GB of internal storage space. Getting this amount of memory at such a low price is unbelievable. 4GB RAM means smooth multitasking between various apps and 64GB storage is enough for all your apps, games, photos, videos, and documents. Plus, there is a dedicated memory card slot which can be used to expand the storage space even further if you need it. The HONOR 8C can accept up to 256GB microSD cards so future readiness is not a problem.
Dual-Camera For Timeless Memories
The HONOR 8C has a 13MP+2MP AI dual-camera setup on the rear, complete with phase-detection autofocus and F1.8 aperture. The 2MP depth sensor that accompanies the 13MP camera aids in capturing depth information so that the phone can create images with a beautiful background blur effect. PDAF makes sure that the camera stays in focus all the time, while F1.8 wide aperture makes sure that images are bright and have lower noise. Plus, wide aperture helps in achieving some background blur even when the Portrait mode isn’t being used.
There is an 8MP front-facing camera for capturing high-resolution selfies and for making video calls. The front-facing camera has an F2.0 aperture and it can capture good videos, just like the rear-facing camera.
4000mAh Battery That Lasts Long
With all these features, it’s hard to not keep using the phone all day long, and when a phone has to endure such usage patterns, it’s hard for it to last long on a single charge. Fret not, though, as the HONOR 8C features a large-capacity 4000mAh battery. The HONOR 8C lasts an entire day on a single charge even with heavy usage. If you’re a light smartphone user, the phone can even last two days straight on a single charge. What’s more, the HONOR 8C also supports 10W fast charging so that the battery gets charged from zero to full in two hours.
The HONOR 8C is available through Amazon.in in four attractive colors: Aurora Blue, Magic Nebula Purple, Night Black, and Platinum Gold. The variant with 4GB RAM and 64GB storage is available for just Rs 8,999. You can even get an additional 10% discount if you make the purchase using credit and debit cards from select banks. So, if you were longing for a good affordable smartphone, the HONOR 8C can be definitely considered as a good option. Go ahead and make that purchase without a doubt in your mind and fully utilize festive season offers.
