"A look at the box contents of Huawei's latest budget entry"

Huawei Honor Holly_5

The budget performance segment is a rapidly growing one, so it's no wonder that every smartphone maker wants a share of the pie. The latest manufacturer to debut its entry into the category is Chinese company Huawei. The brand has been around in the Indian market for a while, but captured the attention of buyers only recently, when it launched the Honor 6 (review), its flagship smartphone which carried a surprisingly affordable price tag of Rs 19,999. Along with the Honor 6, the company also announced a new budget handset, the Honor Holly. Priced at Rs 6,999 and featuring mid-range specs, the Honor Holly is poised to compete against the likes of the Xiaomi Redmi 1s (review | FAQs), Salora Arya Z2 (first impressions) and Oplus Xonphone 5 (review).

The Honor Holly features a 5-inch display with HD resolution. It runs Android 4.4 KitKat, overlaid with Huawei's Emotion UI. Powering the show is a quad-core MediaTek MT6582 processor clocked at 1.3GHz, working in tandem with 1GB of RAM. Photography is handled by an 8-megapixel primary camera with LED flash, and a 2MP front camera for selfies and video calls. The device offers a generous 16GB of internal memory – one of the highest in its price range – with a microSD card slot for further expansion. The smartphone is fuelled by a 2,000mAh battery, and offers dual-SIM, 3G, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth for connectivity. Like the Honor 6, the Holly joins the exclusive Flipkart club for sales. 

We had a chance to go hands-on with the smartphone at the launch event, and now that we have the product for review, here's a peek at its box contents.

The Honor Holly comes in the same attractive blue packaging as the Honor 6. Opening it up, the first thing you see is the smartphone placed on a tray right on top. Removing the top layer exposes a neatly compartmentalised bottom half, which contains the micro-USB cable and a two-pin wall charger. The user guide and warranty information was missing from our review unit, but these should be available in the retail box. Meagre box contents aside, the Honor Holly appears to be another formidable contender in its price range. We'll be using the device extensively over the next couple of weeks to bring you our final thoughts in a detailed review.
