The Honor 5C is pretty much a decent package on a tight sub-RM1,000 budget, and has very great performance and battery life. The only thing that isn’t the greatest is the camera, to which I think is an acceptable trade-off, considering that the pictures are still okay for social media purposes. It’s a great smartphone with the latest Kirin 650 chipset at a really affordable price right now.

Smartphones around the sub-RM800 price range is pretty hot right now. We’ve seen smartphones with all sorts of chipsets – predominantly Mediatek – in the market for months. Honor 5C dropped in with quite a surprise packed in – it’s decently-specced on paper, and equipped with HiSilicon Kirin 650 chipset. To know more about chipsets, do check out our editorial here.

The entire Honor 5C itself comes in a rather standard Honor packaging – with the blue coloured box, and a simple branding printed on it.


Lifting up the lid shows the smartphone itself, which we’ll leave it later.


Behind the Honor 5C itself though has some documentations and a rather peculiar way to store the SIM/SD card ejector tool. Also, do you see a smiley face on it? I find this a rather nice touch – intentional or not.


Digging out everything reveals the usual things that come along with smartphones these days – the phone itself, charger, USB cable, and some documentations. Nothing surprising or spectacular here.
