Design and Display

As for the design, the Huawei Honor 8C has what you’d call a standard modern budget look. There’s the notched screen and small bezels but you can still tell that it is inferior to that on high-end smartphones.

You have a two eyed camera at the back located at the left side with flash below it. You’ve also got the fingerprint scanner right where it should be with the power and volume key at the right side of the phone.

In the display department, there’s a low-tier screen which is placed there to cut costs. On that notion, it is the same with the rest in its league, however, the screen size is definitely on the high-side. With a notch on top, the display goes to about 6.26-inch and has the resolution is set at 1520 X 720 pixels.

Battery and Camera

The Huawei Honor 8C relies on a fairly large battery to power it up as far as smartphones are concerned especially budget ones.

Carrying a 4,000 mAh battery, you can do quite a lot on the smartphone and it will still be on at the end of the day without plugging it in. There’s no fast charge on the smartphone neither is there a USB Type-C port instead you’ve got a MiicroUSB port.
