Huawei Honor

 

Phone makers love to take pride in the extravagant names they give their products, but it's likely that the Huawei Honor is more to its creator than just a decently-specced handset. After all, the introduction of the Honor -- followed by last week's...

Incredible battery life ; Great performance for a midrange device ; Above-average display ; HDR camera captures a large amount of light

Video capture could be better ; Not compatible with all major UMTS / HSPA networks

Huawei has successfully put together a solid mid-range phone that offers great performance for its price.

Huawei U8860 Honor review: Way of the Dragon

 

The Huawei Honor is made in China and proudly so. Designed, engineered and created in the Land of the Dragon, it's nothing like your run-of-the-mill cheap knock-off. It's a genuine Chinese product, not just something put together for someone else –...

Quad-band GSM and tri-band 3G support ; 14.4 Mbps HSDPA; 5.76 Mbps HSUPA ; 1.4GHz Snapdragon CPU; Adreno 205 GPU; Qualcomm MSM 8255Т chipset; 512MB RAM; 4GB ROM ; 1GB storage, microSD card support (up to 32GB) ; 4.0” LCD display of FWVGA (854 x 480)...

Cheapish gloss ; Real smudge magnet ; Poor screen quality ; Non hot-swappable microSD card ; No hardware shutter key ; No native video calling despite built-in VGA camera

The Huawei Honor is a capable device but it would definitely have a hard time dealing with its “Made in China” stigma.

Huawei U8860 Honor review:

 

Huawei has been steadily supplying second-tier U.S. carriers like MetroPCS and Cricket Wireless with midrange Android smartphones at lower prices--at least ones that are affordable for those buying phones off-contract, at a higher up-front cost. Take,...

The Huawei Honor has an easy-to-use interface overlaying Android 2.3 Gingerbread, and a mega battery that promises lengthy talk times.

You don't get all the performance you'd expect from the specs, including the 8-megapixel camera. Call quality was also harsh in our tests, and the unlocked price is a probable deterrent for U.S. customers.

The Huawei Honor may be a step up from most of the company's devices that we get our hands on, but U.S. customers should seek local versions of the Android smartphone, like the Huawei Mercury with Cricket.

Huawei Honor Review

 

The Huawei Honor is a mid-range Android smartphone that is well-spec'd for what it costs. It comes with a 1.4GHz single-core processor and a 4-inch high-resolution display...

Good interface ; Built-in cloud and back-up features ; High-resolution display ; Good value-for-money ratio

Plasticky feel ; Flawed camera ; Display is not sensitive enough

Probably the biggest advantage of the Huawei Honor is its great value-for-money ratio. It can be bought for about $370 off contract, and at that price point, no other brand name company would be able to match its specs. However, you get what you pay...

Huawei Honor Review

 

The Huawei Honor is a bit on the modest side compared to other smartphones out there but Huawei didn't make this a flagship for no good reason. It has a wide range of features with some you can find in more powerful smartphones out in the market. It is...

Huawei Honor Review

 

On paper, this has a very capable hardware package. However, the price tag brings it in the same ring against the likes of the HTC One V. Both phones have their tussle on the specs, but the clear disadvantage for the Honour is that it comes with...

Surprisingly good performance, Built well, Display isn't very vivid, but quite crisp

No ICS yet

Huawei Honor U8860 Mobile Phone Review

 

Looks like the iPhone. Acts like an Android.

Nice UI, excellent battery life, decent speed and a good price

Looks a bit too much like the iPhone. Camera is strictly ok

Oveall, the U8860 is a pretty decent Smartphone. It is well constructed, has a nice display, performs quite well and lasts you quite a long time between charges. Its priced at AED 1,500 making it extremely well worth for what you’re getting and thus...

PHOTOVIEW: Huawei Honor Android 2.3/Android 4.0 Smartphone

 

Not that the Huawei Honor (which is spelled in Europe Honour) is anything new but it took Huawei a little bit longer to bring the stand-by monster to Germany. Powered by a 1.4 GHz single-core CPU, it was initially launched with Android 2.3 /...

Huawei has recently unveiled a new Android smartphone, the Huawei Honor. On the surface, the Huawei Honor looks much alike with the Samsung Galaxy S II. The device has a 10.9mm thin at its thickest point and weighs approximately 140g. Huawei Honor...

Huawei Honor Review

 

With a new Android device announced ever hour, it takes a lot to make a device stand out from the crowd. Some devices are marketed heavily, some bring new features and others just fall to the waysid...

The bad news is that Huawei still has some work to do on the Honor. But that the manufacturer has already released official ICS demo ROMs means they're pretty likely to do it. We're not expecting to see any lines for the Huawei Honor, but it's a good...
