Since it entered the market in 2013, HONOR Mobile Philippines’ stood to its right and produced gadgets that continue to keep up with the latest trends and consumer needs. HONOR shows no signs of stopping with its latest release, the HONOR 8C, a new, yet #PackedWithPower value smartphone.
We previously found out that HONOR 10 can keep up with different lifestyles, and the same may be true with HONOR 8C. It's clear what smartphone-dependent individuals—Manillennials, most especially—need: a reliable phone that won't interrupt their momentum while working or playing.
HONOR 8C is equipped with a long-lasting battery that can last up to 12.5 hours of video playback or 11.1 hours of pure gameplay—a fine deal considering it’s an entry-level smartphone. Manilennials who wants a good working device sans the elaborate specs may consider this feature a one-up from its competitors.
Other noteworthy HONOR 8C features include a powerful Snapdragon 632 Chipset Processor that allows fast web-browsing and a smooth user-interface (UI); an automatic face-unlock (even in low-light condition); an enhanced AI camera that recognizes up to 500 scenarios for better photos (you're welcome, shutterbugs). HONOR really set a new benchmark for value smartphone options on this one.
We may not say it much, but we do consider the first impression; HONOR 8C leaves a good one! It does so with a mesmerizing "Cat's Eye" design, which is perhaps our favorite characteristic of this phone. Its shades of blue with a matte finish produces a distinct gem-like glow upon light reflection, mimicking a cat's eye.
The tech brand made sure the "Cat's Eye" design goes noticeable through the help of their “catbassador,” Meowington, a resident of Elite Cats PH.
