Here are post-processed photos I took with the Huawei Honor 3C’s 8MP camera. Notice how the phone attempts to correct the warm lights. I’m used the SMART (auto) phone features to see how well it performs and for a Sub RM 1,000, I think that the details are quite well preserved though the colors may not seem that vibrant.
Food photography? No problem. 😀
For the photos above, the accompanying “zoomed in” areas are actually 100% crops, just to show you the details.
I even tried some product photography, with flash being manually trigger. I had to use burst mode to get it to work with the flash and I’m glad it turned out alright.
Overall the camera is good enough for the average user but those who are accustomed to phones with better camera, they’ll probably notice the lack of vibrance and contrast on Huawei’s phone camera. The HDR feature does make the color of the image a lot better.
Huawei has yet to announce the price of this device at the time of publication but I guess it would be at around RM 600. Some claimed that source code leaks on various websites show that it’s supposedly priced at RM 880.
Regardless of the price, I think the phone is great as long as it doesn’t go beyond RM 1,000 and definitely the lower the better.
What you get is a phone with lovely 5″ screen, 8MP camera, Dual-SIM, expandable storage and a battery with enough juice to last you a day or 2 as long as you don’t go crazy on running it at full performance with data connectivity and all.
UPDATE : Huawei has announced the price to be RM 499, amazing! Even in my preview session I thought the phone would be priced around RM 600 – 700 range.
