"We believe that good technology should be available to everyone regardless of the customer’s preferred price point. We want to change the way entry-level phones are designed so everyone can enjoy the benefits of good technology and be a part of the increasingly digital world," shared Mr. NiƱo Carandang, Honor Business Unit Manager of Huawei Philippines.

That's the whole goal of Huawei's Honor series. This line is made particularly to provide entry level and midrange consumers with devices having technical specifications that are good enough to deliver an enjoyable and fun mobile experience.

For me, there are three things that are particularly cool about Huawei Honor 3C Lite. First, according to the Chinese company, it is ergonomically designed based on how people hold their smartphones and it even boasts of a "Natural ID" designed by the London Design Center. As a result, the handset's curved back, eschewing sharp corners usually associated with most smartphones, exudes 'firmness and flexibility, solidness and gentleness.'

Second, it has decent features and technical specifications. Honor 3C Lite is equipped with a 5-inch 1280 x 720 pixels display with OTP single-screen calibration technique for better HD colors, fast 3D game processing, and smooth HD movies features. The screen is complemented by dual cameras - an 8 MegaPixel autofocus camera at the back with f/2.0 aperture for enhanced low light performance and a 2 MegaPixel shooter in front - and a gamut of imaging settings including panoramic mode, beauty mode, HDR mode, continuous shot, scene mode, and video stabilizer.

Powered by a removable 2,000 mAh Li-Ion battery pack, this smartphone runs its Emotion UI 2.0 skinned Android 4.4.2 KitKat operating system with a Quad Core 1.3 GHz ARM Cortex A7 and Mali 400 GPU based MediaTek MT6582 chipset, handles multitasking with 1 GB of RAM, and has a sizable 16 GB of ROM (that's the highlight, I believe) that can even be augmented via the microSD card slot. The combination of these internal specs give Huawei Honor 3C Lite an Antutu Benchmark Score in the area of 18,810.

Finally, I like Huawei Honor 3C Lite because its fairly affordable; It's actually one of the most budget-friendly Quad Core 5-inch HD smartphones by an international company that's out in the Philippines. This Dual SIM Dual Standby, 3G HSPA+ enabled handset is available in two colors - namely, Black and White - and you can get at Lazada and other authorized retailers of Huawei in the country for only Php 5,290.

Is it the right smartphone for you? If you're looking for a less-than-Php 6,000 phone by an international player with a great looking display, good main camera, and decent innards - particularly a large internal storage, I think you definitely need to have Huawei Honor 3C Lite in your list of devices to check out and consider getting.
