Honor 5A a entry level phone that has a unique design. While most brands go for a plain boring plastic look, Honor step up their game but making the back a textured cross lines with shiny finish all around the phone sides. Premium look on a budget.
It has a 8MP F2.0 (27mm) front facing camera which is good for selfies. A 13MP rear camera, F2.0 (28mm) tho the camera is using contrast based AF which is a bit slow in taking photo in bright area and slower if in dimmer situation, again this is a budget phone so don’t expect full flagship speeds. Despite the slower AF speeds, it make up by providing the user with manual model controls. You can tweak your shutter speed, ISO, WB and focus. Honor is promoting that you can do awesome light painting with slower shutter speeds and able to shoot macro from 7 cm distance. I wish they had gone with dual tone LED instead of single tone.
The 5.5inch Full HD IPS display is vivid like all Honor phones, 64.5screen to body ratio. The speaker is okay till 70% volume and you would get IEMs or portable headphones for better audio experiences. All this weighs 168 grams. No fingerprint goodie but button are placed well in the right for one hand operations.
Powered by a 1.2Ghz Kirin 620 Octa-core processor backed with a 2GB RAM. 16Gb internal storage, expandable storage up to 128GB via micro SD. Running custom Android 6.0 the well known EMUI 4.1. Dual sim support. You unlike play high graphic intensive games like racing or heavy 3D material since there is no GPU and low 2GB ram. This phone is more for people getting their first phones like kids and likely spends more time on social media apps.
It has a 3100mAh battery which could last quite long as the FHD screen doesn’t drain much power compared the high resolutions smartphones. Plus, Honor’s battery management app is top notch, helping you to save addition juice in your phone. Out in house Youtube battery test lasted for 8 hours and 35 minutes, close to 9 hours on the Honor 5C, still good tho.
