Honor 8C Brief Review and Pros Cons:

Honor 8C is the successor of Honor 7C which arrived just 6 months before 7C. The 8C is priced above 7C and comes with some nice improvements. The display on the Honor 8C is a 6.2 inch IPS LCD panel with HD+ resolution. It has a notch on top and the aspect ratio is 19:9. The lower resolution means things don't look sharp and the brightness isn't great as well. The display is average at best. 

The phone has a glossy back with a black and blue gradient which looks nice and different. The design overall is just good and nothing exciting. We would have loved to see a back similar to Honor 8X. The fingerprint sensor is placed on the back and it is very quick and accurate. There is face unlock available as well. Face unlock is also very quick is there is a good amount of light. In low light conditions, the phone increases the display brightness to light up the face. 

The dual camera on the back is placed vertically. The dual setup is 13MP+2MP where 2MP is the depth sensor that Honor is using since last 2-3 years. The 13MP camera is good though, it has an f/1.8 aperture which helps a bit in low light photography. The front camera is an 8MP shooter and takes decent pictures in daylight conditions and average pictures in low light. The video recording is average as well because there is no stabilization and videos come out shaky. 

The battery inside Honor 8C has a capacity of 4000 mAh. Honor has managed to pack a big battery and keep the phone slim and lightweight. The charger inside the box is the usual 5V 2Amp 10W charger. The battery backup of Honor 8C is excellent and it will easily last for 2 days with low usage and 1.5 days with heavy usage. The charger charges the phone in around 2.5 hours. 

The Honor 8C is powered by the latest Snapdragon 632 Octa Core processor. There is 4GB of RAM and 32 to 64GB of storage. The storage can be increased via the dedicated MicroSD slot. The Snapdragon 632 processor with 4GB of RAM handles multitasking well. There were occasional frame drops in games like Asphalt though. 

Honor 8C runs on EMUI skin based on Android Oreo 8.1. It is bloated and has a lot of preinstalled applications. It does have some useful features like dual apps. So if you are coming from a Stock Android phone, you might hate it for the UI or you might love it for the additional features. 

Overall, Honor 8C is a mixed bag. The battery backup is great, there is a dedicated MicroSD slot and the multitasking is decent. Negatives include an HD display, bloatware and average camera performance in low light. It is a decent phone overall but not the best at all. Go for Realme 2 Pro, Redmi Note 6 Pro, Samsung M20 which provides better value for money. If you like Honor then increase your budget by 2000 and go for Honor 8X which is a much better option than 8C.

Should you buy Honor 8C?

Honor 8C is a good phone overall but not the best one. The multitasking performance is decent, battery is excellent and the camera is good but the HD display and bloatware are the major cons. Go for it only if you love Honor and have a budget of around 12000 or 13000. If you can spend a bit more, go for Honor 8X which is a much better deal overall.
