Out of the box, the Honor 5c runs an EMUI 4.1 skin laid on top of Android 6.0 Marshmallow. It also happens to be the most affordable Huawei Honor phone to have a full HD display. In India, the phone will be sold exclusively via Flipkart.com.

    Just one issue: 2GB RAM.

      Depends on usage, for a lot of people 2GB is more than enough.

        Yep. Especially for folks who only use the dialer and messaging apps.

          Yup and the folks who only use Facebook, Messenger and Candy Crush type of apps.

            Agree. I use about 14 apps for different reasons on my galaxy s2 and it still runs fine. Have Greenify to hibernate apps that I would want to run at my will. Works just fine with half of honor 5c’s ram. Got cyanogen 13 on it.

              Don’t believe you. An ex-colleague has the same g s2 with CM13 and it’s slow as hell.

              Really?? Mine works well. I am on the 20160505 nightly one … not sure what apps your friend has… also i updated the thing to 6gb internal storage (did that from some post on xda) so there are no apps on SDcard. has been smooth so far.

      My GF has the Moto G 3rd gen with 1GB/8GB (she couldn’t wait for the 2GB/16GB version to be released) and it works perfectly fine for her. She did had to expand storage to the SD though but now has 40GB of storage (8 internal + 32 SD). She doesn’t play games, just FB, Messenger, WhatsApp, Gmail, etc …

      My Honor 7 has 3GB of RAM and I always have about 1,2GB free. 2GB is more than enough for 90% of the people.
