Huawei Honor U8860 Review


The mid-range smartphone segment is always an exciting place to be in. Here we have phones that offer the perfect compromise between features, performance and value and every once in a while, we'll get a high-end phone that drops in to make way for new...

At a street price of Rs. 19,900, the Huawei Honor U8860 is playing with the big boys, like the Sony Ericsson Xperia Pro, Xperia Sola, Galaxy S Plus and the HTC One V. Perhaps its closest competitor is the Galaxy S Plus due to the same screen size. This...

Huawei Honor Review


Huawei may not yet be famous in the USA, but we've been keeping an eye on their Android phones, and they have been steadily making progress, so we were very curious to see what the Huawei Honor, aka Huawei U8860, [...]

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 (glossy black, unlocked)


Although the company often saves a better class of devices for Asia, we are starting to see higher-caliber Android smartphones from Huawei in the U.S., like the Impulse 4G from AT&T.

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 (U8860) Review


When Huawei sent over their new and soon to be released smartphone set to debut in Asia in Q4 called the Huawei Honor (U8860) also known as the Glory , I was expecting another run of the mill Android smartphone for the budget crowd like their previous...

Huawei might not be as popular or widely celebrated as the HTC's and Samsung's in the mobile world, but that doesn't mean they shouldn't be. If Huawei continues to put out great hardware like this here phone and the award winning Huawei Vision I see no...

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...
