Honor 6 Plus review

 

Can Huawei better their P8 and Ascend G7 phones with Honor?

Great screen ; Long battery life ; Sleek design ; 3GB Ram ; Appealing price ; 4G, NFC

Horrible UI ; Stuck on Android 4.4.2 ; Same gaming lag ; No Qi or quick charge tech ; So-so snapper

You might not have heard of Honor. In-fact, the brand didn't even exist a year ago, but the Huawei spin-off is now producing some well specced yet affordable smartphones that you can actually buy on the high-street.

Honor 6+ review

 

All the tech ingredients are there for a great budget phone, but does it have the quality to match the very best?

Big, sharp screen Good camera Reasonable price

Poor sound Tacky build

Specs and features aren’t everything. Just look at the Apple iPhone 6: its paltry specifications belie a top-class performance. Clearly the folks at Cupertino know how to maximise resources. Sadly it’s not the same story with Honor/Huawei. Despite...

Honor 6 Plus 5.5in smartphone review

 

Honor has partnered with Three to bring this excellent mid-range smartphone to the UK market, and we think it's one to watch.

For anyone looking for a smartphone with a large screen, the Honor 6 Plus is absolutely worth considering. It has great specs, a good-looking and sleek design and a cool camera, all at a surprisingly low price.

Honor 6 Plus review

 

The Honor 6 Plus has a great screen, decent battery life and a flexible camera, but Huawei's Emotion UI prevents it from being truly great

However, the biggest flaw is that the phone is stuck with both Android 4.4.2 and Huawei's divisive Emotion UI, which makes it feel very old-fashioned. The notification and shortcuts menu are still separated into two panels (which annoyingly always...

Honor 6 Plus

 

Honor is the sister brand of ascending Chinese mobile phone manufacturer Huawei, and its new flagship phone, the Honor 6 Plus, is the brand's first real statement of intent in the UK and Europe.

Solid construction ; Capable camera ; Excellent value ; Solid battery life ; Great screen

Minor performance lag ; May be a touch chunky for some

Huawei Honor 6 Plus review

 

Big screen, even bigger battery

Great screen ; Gigantic battery, decent stamina ; High-end design touches ; Loads of storage

So-so camera ; Dated CPU ; Quirky software

It doesn’t have bleeding edge tech, but strong stamina and a big, bold screen win us over

Honor 6 Plus review: Hands-on with new Honor smartphone

 

The Honor 6 Plus is bigger than its Honor 6 sibling, with a 5.5in screen rather than the 5in screen (we're not sure how Apple will feel about the name, particularly considering that the 5.5in screen size matches that of the iPhone 6 Plus, as do the...

Honor 6X Review: In Depth

 

Honor 6X review: Honor's first phone of 2016 is an interesting mid-ranger packing a premium build and a dual sensor-laden rear camera. Meet the Honor 6X.

Attractive design ; Rich camera features ; Great battery life

Underwhelming camera quality ; No 5GHz WiFi support

The Honor 6X is a timely update on 2016’s Honor 5X with a great design, feature-rich user and camera interfaces, dependable battery life and respectable performance, all for under £225.

Honor 6X review: Flagship features for under £200

 

The Honor 6X is a brilliant all-rounder, made all the better by its low price. Camera aside it does little other phones don't, but as a complete package it's hard to beat without spending a lot more.

+ Low price ; + Metal build ; + Dual-lens camera

- No NFC ; - Somewhat iffy interface ; - Slightly plain

The Honor 6X is a highly-accomplished smartphone, with a stylish build, a decent amount of power and an powerful dual-lens camera. With a fingerprint scanner, a large battery, plenty of storage and an above average screen too it makes for a strong option.
