Honor 6 review

 

A near high-end Android phone at half the price

Decent full HD display ; Reasonable price tag ; Surprisingly fast performance

CAT 6 LTE not yet available ; Looks cheap and derivative ; Emotion UI needs an overhaul

Ratings in depth With Google seemingly turning its back on the whole affordable flagship phone concept with the Nexus 6, it appears you have to look to China for your Android bargains these days. Following the template set by the OnePlus One, the Honor...

Honor 6 video review: The smartphone you've never heard of it pretty great

 

Honor is a new smartphone brand in the European market and its first smartphone to arrive in the UK has specs to rival Apple and Samsung but at half the price. Also see: Best smartphones 2014 and Best Android phones 2014.

You can't use its fastest 4G speeds in the UK yet, but the Honor 6 is still a good smartphone at this price

Honor 6

 

A super-cheap route to Full HD phone bliss

Good performance ; Sharp, vivid screen ; Great value

Audio clipping in calls ; Glossy plastic rear prone to scratches

However, after comparing to some other phones of this size, it's a slight shame that it has such a boxy shape. While the sides of the Honor 6 are slightly rounded, the edges are still fairly severe, and using more of a curvature would have made it...

Honor 6 review

 

Honor is a new name in smartphones and we've taken a look at the first model to bear the logo. Here's our in-depth Honor 6 review; it's a phone which offers specs to rival Apple and Samsung at half the price. Also see: Best smartphones 2014 and Best...

We're seriously impressed by the Honor 6 which costs just £249 while providing specs you would normally pay a lot more for. It has a decent 5in Full HD screen, high quality cameras, good battery life, 4G support, good performance, expandable storage...

Huawei Honor 6 Review: In Depth

 

We review the Huawei Honor 6, a refreshingly affordable Full HD phone with some very strong specs for the price.

Great value ; Dependable camera ; Strong performance ; Crisp HD screen

Bland, easily scratched case ; Some UI irrtations

With the Honor 6, Huawei has crafted one of the best mid-tier smartphones of recent times. For less than £300, you get a sharp Full HD screen that’s solid for movies, 4G support for streaming media, smooth performance and a pair of dependable cameras....

Huawei Honor 6 review

 

Huawei 5in smartphone has the looks and the price to challenge the big names, but is the hardware any good?

The Huawei Honor 6 doesn’t do an awful lot wrong. It may not be as cheap as the Motorola Moto G 2, or as fast and all-round competent as the Sony Xperia Z3 Compact, but its sleek design, decent cameras, high-quality display and acceptable all-round...

Huawei Honor 6 hands-on review

 

Huawei continues to try and conquer the smartphone market and the Honor 6 might be the boost it needs with specs to rival Apple and Samsung flagships at half the price. Here's our Honor 6 hands-on review from Berlin.

The Honor 6 from Huawei seems like a great phone for the price with a 5in Full HD screen, octa-core processor and 13Mp Sony camera. However, we've had problems with the Emotion UI in the past. Stay tuned for a full review soon once we've tested the...

Honor 6 Smartphone Review

 

Honor and valor. Huawei's trendy subsidiary launches its presently most expensive model on the market dubbed Honor 6: A 5-inch smartphone for around 300 Euros (~$319). Read in this report whether the Chinese manufacturer will rock the mid-range with it.

Full HD screen, Rigid casing, High performance, Extensive software, High working memory capacity, LTE Cat. 6, High-resolution cameras, Good performance for money ratio

Very high power consumption, Middling speaker and mic quality, Unsatisfactory GPS reception, Short battery life

"For the brave" is the caption above the Honor 6 on the website. But why? The user does not have to be overly brave to bring a very solid mid-range phone home, which also stands out with a first-rate configuration. Not every member of this category can...

Huawei Honor 6 ( black)

 

It may seem brave -- or, perhaps, foolish -- to launch a new mobile brand in such a busy market, but it's not really a new brand at all. In fact, Honor is owned and operated by Chinese manufacturer Huawei. Although not a separate company at all, Honor...

The Honor 6's crisp, bright display makes videos and pictures look great, its octa-core processor will handle anything you're likely to throw at it, and its price tag is extremely reasonable.

The Huawei Android skin makes some big changes to the platform, which some will find frustrating to live with, and the phone itself feels slightly cheap.

Its software might not be perfect, but the Honor 6 packs an impressive lineup of specs for a brilliant price. If you want the crisp screen and fast speeds of the top-end phones but don't fancy the price tag, the Honor 6 is a great phone to go for.
