Huawei Honor 6 review

 

A new mobile brand has entered the brutal smartphone arena. Say hello to Honor.

The Honor 6's crisp, bright display makes videos and pictures look great, its octa-core processor will handle anything you're likely to throw at it, and its price tag is extremely reasonable.

The Huawei Android skin makes some big changes to the platform, which some will find frustrating to live with, and the phone itself feels slightly cheap.

Its software might not be perfect, but the Honor 6 packs an impressive lineup of specs for a brilliant price. If you want the crisp screen and fast speeds of the top-end phones but don't fancy the price tag, the Honor 6 is a great phone to go for.

Huawei Honor 6 ( black)

 

It may seem brave -- or, perhaps, foolish -- to launch a new mobile brand in such a busy market, but it's not really a new brand at all. In fact, Honor is owned and operated by Chinese manufacturer Huawei. Although not a separate company at all, Honor...

Huawei Honor 6 Review

 

While Huawei's flagship banner was traditionally carried by its Ascend P-series, the P7 didn't ship with a high end SoC that was able to compete with other devices in the same category. With the Honor 6, Huawei takes a departure from its usual lineup...

Of course Huawei isn't standing still. The Honor 6 is supposed to be a device mainly targeted at the Chinese market, and since I've started writing the review a couple of weeks ago, they have announced the Ascend Mate 7 with EmotionUI 3.0 powered by a...

Honor 6 Smartphone Review

 

Honor and valor. Huawei's trendy subsidiary launches its presently most expensive model on the market dubbed Honor 6: A 5-inch smartphone for around 300 Euros (~$319). Read in this report whether the Chinese manufacturer will rock the mid-range with it.

Full HD screen, Rigid casing, High performance, Extensive software, High working memory capacity, LTE Cat. 6, High-resolution cameras, Good performance for money ratio

Very high power consumption, Middling speaker and mic quality, Unsatisfactory GPS reception, Short battery life

"For the brave" is the caption above the Honor 6 on the website. But why? The user does not have to be overly brave to bring a very solid mid-range phone home, which also stands out with a first-rate configuration. Not every member of this category can...

Huawei Honor 6 mini-review

 

The first device in the new-for-Europe Honor brand mixes high-end specs and an affordable price point Huawei's continued push in Europe has recently seen the launch of the Honor brand, and with it the Honor 6. It's an interesting proposition, in so...

Huawei should be commended for its approach with the Honor 6. High-end smartphones without a high-end price are still few and far between, with even this year's Nexus release commanding a hefty outlay. The Honor 6 ticks most of the boxes for what we...

Huawei Honor 6 Review : Full In-Depth Hands-On

 

Huawei Honor 6 has an amazing display and the design and built quality is worth praising and those who do not consider sound quality a major aspect to accept or reject a phone it would be a great buy.

Honor 6

 

A super-cheap route to Full HD phone bliss

Good performance ; Sharp, vivid screen ; Great value

Audio clipping in calls ; Glossy plastic rear prone to scratches

However, after comparing to some other phones of this size, it's a slight shame that it has such a boxy shape. While the sides of the Honor 6 are slightly rounded, the edges are still fairly severe, and using more of a curvature would have made it...

Honor 6 review

 

A near high-end Android phone at half the price

Decent full HD display ; Reasonable price tag ; Surprisingly fast performance

CAT 6 LTE not yet available ; Looks cheap and derivative ; Emotion UI needs an overhaul

Huawei should be reasonably proud to put its name to this affordable Android powerhouse, even if it doesn't look like much.
