Honor 5C debuts in India for ₹10,999; plans to beat the Moto G4 at its own game

After launching in Europe earlier this week, the Honor 5C has made its way to India. The budget phone is priced at ₹10,999, and will go up against the Moto G4, which is set to debut in the country later today. The highlight with the phone is the Kirin 650 SoC, which is made on a 16nm node.

The phone certainly offers a lot of great hardware for its asking price, and the metal build is a definite bonus. Motorola has led the way when on the software front, but the Moto G4 Plus’ design isn’t anything to get excited about. Here’s what’s on offer on the hardware front:
