It seems Chinese telecom equipment manufacturer, Huawei, has finally got a break in the price sensitive smartphone market with its flagship Honor 6 smartphone.
Quick specs: 5-inch Full HD display, 445 ppi : 1.3 gHz octa-core Hi Silicon Kirin 920 processor : 3 GB RAM : 16 GB internal memory, up to 64 GB expandable : 13 MP rear camera : 5 MP front camera : Android 4.4.2 KitKat OS : Emotion 2.3 UI : 4G ready : 3100 mAh battery
Design: It’s a good looking smartphone. The overall look of the phone seems to be inspired by the older iPhones, however, Huawei has taken care to pay attention to minor detailing. The glass back and plastic sides may give an impression that the device is frail but the third generation Corning Glass protection assures strength. The build quality is good and the device feels solid in hands.
Display: Sharp and crisp. The 5-inch Full HD screen does its best. The viewing angles are decent. The display performs well under sunlight as well. Users shouldn’t have any complains with the display quality of the smartphone.
Performance: Huawei Honor 6 promises a lot on paper and it even delivers. An octa-core processor with 3 GB RAM is enough to attract any smartphone buyer. But the hardware does a good job in the most demanding situations. I did not encounter any sort of lags. Also, the phone doesn’t heat up much.
Software: The device runs on Android 4.4.2 KitKat operating system and is sugar-coated with Huawei’s Emotion 2.3 UI. Overall, the experience is good and the UI offers some handy customisations as well.
Camera: The 13 MP rear camera is decent if not great. However, there is certain amount of noise in the images even in good lighting conditions. The front 5 MP camera produced surprisingly good results. Overall, it is fast, colours are nearly accurate and average users shouldn’t have much to complain.
Storage: The device offers 16 GB of internal storage out of which around 11 GB is available. The memory can be further expanded up to 64 GB via microSD card.
Battery: Excellent battery life at this price. The smartphone will easily last up to two days in normal usage. I was using 3G along with WiFi, played few HD games and the device lasted for over 32 hours even at maximum brightness. Battery life is one of the areas that will even impress the power users.
Connectivity: The smartphone supports 4G networks. In front of connectivity, I witnessed no issues at all.
Verdict: In the $400 range, the Huawei Honor 6 is a good buy. Users will be impressed with the design, performance and battery life of the device.
