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

You get a lot of phone for your money, but it’s not all good

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: A dual-camera Moto G4 Plus adversary


With fantastic performance at a great price, Honor's 6X shouldn't be ignored

Great dual-camera on a budget; A great performer; Long-lasting battery life;

Disappointing display;

Honor has created a fantastically capable budget smartphone in the 6X at a very tempting price, and it’s impossible not to recommend it.
