$97 Huawei Honor 3C Play goes official

Huawei’s Honor 3C is still known to be a great budget device, but for those who don’t agree here’s something — the Honor 3C Play.

Priced at a nominal 599 CNY or $97, the Honor 3C Play aka the Honor 3C Play Edition is basically a knocked down version of the original Honor 3C. This Play Edition phone comes with just 1GB of RAM as opposed to 2GB on the original version, but is quite a lot lighter on the wallet as well.



  • 5-inch 1280 x 720p display
  • 1.3GHz quad-core MediaTek MT6582 CPU
  • 1GB RAM
  • 16GB on-board storage, expandable
  • 8 mega-pixel rear camera
  • 2 mega-pixel front camera
  • 2300mAh battery

At just $97, the Honor 3C looks like a great option for those who are just looking to step into the world of Android. Of course, there are other options in this range, but hardly any offer the quality and reliability of Huawei.

Xiaomi’s Redmi 1S could be seen as a direct competitor to this one, but Xiaomi’s phones are still pretty hard to get hold of. There are also other phones such as the Asus Zenfone series that offer similar VFM.

Which one would you go for, between the Redmi 1S, Asus Zenfone series and the Honor 3C Play? Do let us know.
