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

For the appealing price of £299.99, Honor's 6 Plus packs a great screen, solid build and a snapper that mostly get the job done. If the UI was up to scratch and Lollipop was around to complete the package, this could be one of the best mid-range...

Huawei Honor 6X review

 

The Huawei Honor 6X has two things that the Galaxy S8 does not: dual rear cameras and a fast, accurate rear-mounted fingerprint reader that's actually easy to reach. (Samsung's Galaxy S8 has a single camera lens on the back and awkwardly puts its...

The Huawei Honor 6X has a dual rear camera, a ton of advanced camera tools and it's way cheap.

It runs an older version of Android and sometimes lags when launching or switching apps. Photo quality doesn't live up to the tools.

The Motorola Moto G5 Plus is the better budget phone in nearly every way. Get the Huawei Honor 6X only if you really want a dual rear camera.

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

But what’s really impressive about the Honor 6X is that it holds firm against smartphones that cost twice (and in some cases three) times as much as its £225 asking price. In short, Honor has created a fantastically capable budget smartphone in the 6X...

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

 

Honor, if you didn't know, is the brand Huawei uses to sell some of its phones in Europe and it's the name attached to the new Honor 6 Plus. A 5.5-inch Android smartphone with a full HD display, an octa-core processor and a quirky dual 8-megapixel...

The Huawei Honor 6 Plus' big, bold screen is great for video, its processor handles most tasks well and its camera takes shots that are ideal for Facebook.

It's running a version of Android several iterations out of date and the custom interface on top makes the phone not only awkward to use, but also often sluggish to navigate.

With its good screen, strong processor and solid camera, the Honor 6 Plus is well-equipped for most all the social-networking fun you could want and doesn't ask for much cash in return. It's a shame about its clunky, outdated software, though, which...

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
