The Honor 6 is part of a new breed of affordable flagships. We put it to the test in our review.Sep 29 2014 By Ketaki Bhojnagarwala
The Honor 6 is part of a new breed of flagships that aim to bring the same specifications and performance seen on its more expensive cousins, at more affordable rates. The other smartphones that fall into this category are the new Moto X, Gionee Elife E7 (review) and the Xiaomi Mi 3 (review). While these devices may not have the premium all-metal build seen on the HTC One (M8), LG G3 and iPhone 6, it`s a small sacrifice to make considering the price differential.The Honor 6 is in every way a tru
LG, Samsung, HTC, Sony, Motorola et al are selling their flagship with high-end spec between 32+ K to 45+K rupees. So when lesser known company like Huawei comes with a spec which beats all these flagship phones on paper and costs about half or less than half, then one tends to be suspicious at first. Like me.nI was very skeptical (especially after reading AnandTech review, which I will cover later in this review) about this phone. After owning this phone for a week I am converted person.nSo, before I begin my review, here is my summary. This is the BEST smartphone right now in Indian market. PERIOD! And here is why!nn1.UI - I am not a huge fan of chinese UI (MIUI and EMUI) skins which ape iPhone UI. But surprisingly I love the EMUI 2.3. Its light, smooth and does exactly what you would expect without being an hindrance or restrictive. I am running Google Now Launcher because I am used to it on my Nexus 4 and it works beautifully with EMUI. My only wish is that I hope EMUI can allow us to go immersive.nn2. Buid and Quality- Surprisingly Light and ergonomically well designed. When Samsung came out with Galaxy S2 I fell in love with it becasue of its form factor. Honor 6 is very similar to that. Although mostly plastic, it doesnt look cheap at all. And can compete with any phone out there (including iPhone and Sony Z3) on looksnn3.Camera: Much better than my Nexus 4. Not as good as Sony Z2 or Z3. But Colors are great. Noise is low. Does well in lowlight. .nn4.PERFORMANCE: Not a single hang nor a single reboot since I bought. That to me is a performance as expected. I am not a gamer so I am not interested in benchmarks. But this phone is smooth and very responsive. No lag, no stutter, no problems. Video rendering is awesome. nn5.DISPLAY: Brilliant 1080p full HD. Best screen there is.Nothing more to add here except that my battery goes quickly because I cant put the phone down. I have got into this habit of turning on my screen every few seconds to look at the beautiful screen! :-)nn6.BATTERY: With 1080p and Octacore you need a powerful battery. Honor has one. nnHere are my results from everyday test.nnI am a heavy 3G user. I use 3G 10-12 hours a day and rest on WiFi. I use the screen heavily on News, Whatsapp and Google+ . So I do about 4-5 hours of Screen On Time (SOT). I needed a phone which will last me at least from 6AM in the morning to 10PM at night (with still little bit of juice left!!).nnBIG PLUS - Battery is a Fast charger. You can charge to 20-25% in 20 minutes. Thats fast and helps you get about 5 hours of life with moderate to heavy use.nnHere are the real life testsnnOn Wifi: With a single charge I got over 24 hrs with about 5 hours of SOT with 1080p display On, Bluetooth ON, Location ON (WiFi), GPS OFFnnOn 3g (10 to 12 hrs in office) and rest on WiFi: I get about 14-15 hours with 3 hours of SOT with 1080p display ON, Bluetooth ON, Location ON (WiFi), GPS OFFnnHere is the TRICK to make the phone work for 24 hours on 10-12 hours of 3G and rest on WiFina)Charge the battery full overnight and use the phone normallynb)When the battery drops to 65-70%, charge for 15-20 minutes to get to about 85%nc)Use the phone normally nnUsing this trick I got 24 hours of battery life with 4 hours of SOT. nnScreen Save Feature: Huawei claims that by turning the screen to 720p resolution (using Screen saver in settings) we can increase the battery by 20% . I have not been able to replicate this. In my test both 1080p and 720p get me about the same battery life with above config. So may be I am missing something or its just a gimmick from Huawei.nnUltra Power Saving mode; This is pretty much useless in normal daily life, unless you are in a place where you cannot charge and need the phone for calling or SMS desperatelynnStand By: Extraordinary standby time!! In my test the phone takes about 2% every 6hours on standby. Which translates to 300 hours of stand by!! That is impressive!nn7.Now coming to AnandTech Review:nWith a hind-sight I feel AnandTech review was designed to make it look like this phone is failure in front of other flagships (who probably pay AnandTech?). The WiFi review was a big thing. They made it look like a piece of crap. nLet me tell you - All connections 3g/WiFi/GPS/Bluetooth are fast and smooth. No Lag No drops and No issues.nGPS is faster to acquire than on my Nexus 4nBluetooth connects faster than my Nexus 4nWifi seems faster than Nexus 4 (I did Ookla speed test and I found Honor 6 getting better Mbps than N4 on same network, not sure how!)nLocation acquisition on Wifi (non-GPS) is faster than Nexus 4.nNO ISSUES Whats So ever!! nn8.Lastly the CONS: For me the only con is the lack of Dual SIM. Otherwise NO issues! People are complaining that they didnt get headset. Whats the use of a crappy headset that you get with Moto G? Buy your own! For this price, lack of headset is nothing for me.nn4 Star Because I am wary of giving it a 5 star so soon! :-)
I was initially reluctant to buy this product because I wasn't sure about the brand.I went against my will due to its killer specs it hadnnI also did my due diligence before buying it. The reviews were extremely positive and they compete against Mi4 and it must for a reasonnnI was pleasantly surprised with the phone. It was butter smooth and the Emotion UI is insanely simple to usennProsn1. Beautiful designn2. Super smooth touchn3. Easy and simple UIn4. Incredible performancen5. Long battery life ( get more than a day and half) - MotoX dies in 8 hours and my phone in hoursn6. 441 PPI displaynConsn1. Not many people know about the brandn2. Draws too much attentionn3. No Dual SIM and 4GnnNote: This product has a Kirin 920processor and not a Mediatek processor
