Huawei Honor 5C packs dual-SIM and a grime-resistant cameraThe 5C promises rocket-fuelled performance via its octa-core processor, and will arrive in Europe with a tempting price tag of £150 (roughly $220 or AU$295).
[MUSIC] One of the best tech trends of the last few years has been really powerful smartphones getting seriously cheap, and this is another phone in that vein. It's the Honor 5C. Let's take a look at what it can do. This phone is already on sale in China, but now it's coming to Europe, and the headline feature really is the price. This thing's gonna cost 150 pounds. Which makes it really quite portable. There's not word yet on a US release date but let me tell you about the specs. This is a 5.2" full HD display. That's a 13 megapixel camera on the back and an 8 megapixel snapper on the front. One interesting feature is that there's an oil resistive coating on the rear camera Which should cut down on irritating fingerprint smudges on the lens that ruin your pictures. Now Honor is really making a lot of this processor when it talks about it, saying that it's going to be extremely fast. So it'll be interesting to see when it comes to the [INAUDIBLE] [INAUDIBLE] reviews, whether those claims stack up. Another cool thing about this phone, is that it's dual sim. So you can have two sim cards in at the same time and switch between them. If you don't wanna use two sim cards, you can use one of those slots to house a micro SD card and beef up the on-board [UNKNOWN] storage. [BLANK_AUDIO] First impressions then are of a powerful, straight down the line Android phone at a good price. But stay tuned for the full review. [MUSIC]
