Design and Build
A first glance at the Huawei Honor 4C and you will notice that it has taken a lot of inspiration from its elder sibling the Honor 4X. The Honor 4C has similar design elements such as the textured plastic removable cover, the same positioning of the camera, similar flat edges and so on. The device is 8.8 mm thin and weighs around 162 grams. The overall build quality is good and the etched honor branding on the rear side and the silver coloured rim around the front face adds a bit of elegance to the device. Surprisingly, the white coloured model looks more attractive than one in black.  The phone is easy to grip and although the rear cover is removable, the battery isn’t. You will need to remove the rear cover to add in the microSD card or the dual SIMs.

The Huawei Honor 4C comes with a 5 inches 1280 x 720 px display. Expecting an HD display at this price point has become a norm and Honor 4C dosen’t disappoint on that front. This gives it a pixel density of 294 ppi which is reasonably decent display. The display is bright and vibrant, but one thing that is annoying is its propensity to attract smudge marks. You will find yourself cleaning the display quite often. The display has an IPS panel so the viewing angles are great, but there is no Corning Gorilla Glass protection.

Chipset, RAM, Storage
Just like its elder sibling, the Honor 4C also houses a HiSilicon Kirin chipset. The Kirin 620 system on chip houses a 64-bit octa-core Cortex A53 processor clocked at 1.2 GHz along with Mali T450 GPU. While the chipset supports 4G LTE as well, the Honor 4C is not a 4G phone. According to GSMArena, the Kirin 620 is comparable to Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 410 SoC. We will have to compare performance numbers to say for sure. The chipset is paired with 2GB of RAM. The Huawei Honor 4C comes with 8GB of storage and you have the option to expand it via a microSD card slot which can be accessed by opening the rear cover.

Camera Battery
Huawei Honor 4C packs in a 13 MP rear camera and a 5 MP front facing camera. The rear camera comprises a Sony BSI sensor and comes with an f/2.0 aperture lens. The user interface on the camera app is similar to what we had seen on the Honor 4X as well as the Honor 6 Plus. The lighting situation at the launch venue wasn’t ideal so we will have to test it out when we get the review sample. The 2550 mAh battery on the Huawei Honor 4C is non removable. Looking at the capacity of the battery it seems like one should be able to extract a day’s worth of usage. But we will reserve our final verdict till we put the phone through our tests.
