Huawei Honor 8C Hands-On Review – Images

In this Huawei Honor 8C Hands-On, we can see how the company’s Smartphone resembles their high-end terminals but at a cheaper price. Its dimensions are only 7.59 x 15.87 x 0.80cm, and weighs 167 grams, making it a fairly light and compact terminal. Its casing is designed in an aluminum alloy with a metallic finish and can be acquired in up to 4 colors: Magic Night Black, Aurora Blue, Platinum Gold, and Purple. In the lower images, we show you how the Aurora Blue model looks.

A mixture between a matte and metallic finish is achieved in the Honor 8C

A screen that occupies 81% of the available space dominates the front, and the rest is divided between a small bevel at the bottom and a top notch. The back has 2 slightly protruding cameras, a LED Flash and the fingerprint sensor.

Its design is very clean and delicate. From Huawei avoided any unnecessary curve.

The Honor 8C display has dimensions of 6.26 inches with a 19:9 aspect ratio and has a 720 x 1520p resolution (HD+), so it has a total of 268ppi. It is built using IPS LCD technology and a 2.5D curved glass, so it has an amazing finish and a very good angle of view.

Huawei Honor 8C Hands-On Review – The Specs

Being Huawei, it was expected that the Smartphone had more than decent technical specifications for its range. We can see in this Huawei Honor 8C Hands-On that from the manufacturer they have done a spectacular job at the performance level. The terminal is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 632 chip based on an octa-core architecture with speeds of up to 1.8GHz. Accompanying this mid-range titan is the Adreno 506 GPU. This combination gives it an AnTuTu score of approximately 57,000 points.

Huawei Honor 8C Hands-On - Software
As expected, the Honor 8C works with EMUI as the operating system. The good thing is that this is based on Android 8.1, so we will enjoy many options.

The RAM will be standard among all models, having 4GB. In addition, it can be purchased with a capacity of 32GB or 64GB, depending on our taste (it should be noted that in any case it could be expanded by Micro SD cards up to 256GB).

Huawei Honor 8C Hands-On - Notch
The notch is present in the Honor 8C. It uses a somewhat large design that has gradually been eliminated.

Something had to be sacrificed to make the phone as accessible as possible, and although it is not of poor quality, the sensors used for cameras are not the best we can get in the market. Its configuration is composed of a combination of 13.0 + 2.0MP, with a f/1.8 and f/2.4 focal aperture respectively. The front camera is a bit more modest, being a unique 8.0MP sensor with a f/2.0 focal aperture, with which you can also record at 1080p.

Huawei Honor 8C Hands-On - Cameras
The cameras, both rear and front, fulfill their purpose without offering a very novel experience.

Among other features of the terminal, we can mention its 4000mAh battery, a fingerprint scanner on the back and the facial unlocking feature. A positive point for many users is that at the port level, the Honor 8C retains the classic 3.5mm jack for headphones. Finally, the phone software is the EMUI 8.2 custom layer based on Android 8.1, so it is very up to date in updates.
