User Interfernece: I am head over heels for the UI of this phone. The Honor 4C comes with EMUI 3.0, a unique interface designed to simplify your smartphone needs.

Battery: The Honor 4C’s CPU and other hardware components are coupled with SmartPower 2.5, a technology that increases your phone’s 2550 mAh battery life by more than 30%. You can expect up to 80 hours of light usage and up to 50 hours of moderate usage with this phone.
My Verdict: Like its predecessor the Honor 4X, the USP of the Honor 4C is the camera. The 13mp camera helps you capture beautiful pictures during the day and also helps you play around with its ISO, aperture etc for a better controlled shots.
Another great aspect about the phone is its battery life. The 2,550Ah battery can easily last a day even after heavy usage – a perfect phone for those who travel quite often. The UI simply adds on to the above feature and gives you the best experience one can have for a phone under the 10k budget category. Undoubtedly my favourite of all the phones I have reviewed in the last 6-8 months.
