Huawei Honour U8860 Review: In Depth

 

When we first handled the Huawei Honour U8860 we thought: zippy, affordable and functional. It enters the ring at £180 with its non-descript design and capable spec sheet, so off the bat this phone makes…

Great screen ; Good battery life ; Solid camera performance

Bland design ; Unintuitive camera UI ; Android 2.3 is out of date

Huawei Honor U8860

 

While the name of Huawei might not be one of the first names that trips off your tongue when the subject of manufacturers of Android devices is taking place, the company is determined to change that perception with some new products. Recently I took a...

This is the standard candy mode style of unit. It is decked out in black and comes with the Android 2.3 operating system. With dimensions of 122 x 61.5 x 10.9mm (H x W x D) and a weight of 135g, the Honor has a nice comfortable and solid feel to it...

Huawei Honor review

 

The Huawei Honor is yet another budget smartphone from the Chinese phone maker that does little to help the company in its ongoing effort to break into the top to medium end western market.

Solid build, decent camera, reasonable battery life

Outdated operating system, software additions are detrimental to user experience, slow performance

A solid smartphone but build quality is let down by poor, out-of-date software

Huawei Honour review -

 

Crisp and responsive four-inch touch-screen, decent battery life, smart eight-megapixel camera

Android Gingerbread, streaming HD video is a stuttery affair, rubbish social networking app

Huawei Honor review

 

Huawei drops the budget bias and tries to mix it with the big boys of the Android world - but is the Honor a success? Find out in our review

Fast, attractive and won’t break the bank

Screen is sometimes unresponsive, camera could be better

For the asking price - around £200 SIM-free and unlocked - the Huawei Honor represents amazing value for money. It’s a good-looking and capable device which proves the Chinese company is ready to make big waves in the smartphone arena

Huawei Honor U8860

 

From the land of the dragon comes the Huawei Honor, which sports some impressive mid-range specs available at an even more surprising budget pricetag.

Good display; 8 MP snapper; quick Qualcomm chip inside; UI is intuitive and very functional.

Plastic design feels a bit cheap; display is a real fingerprint magnet; and only 1 GB of onboard storage.

Huawei Honor

 

With its impressive specifications and Galaxy S2-style aesthetics, the Honor sees Huawei taking a shot at the high-end Android market.

Adopters of the Huawei Honor will be greeted with a vibrant 4-inch (480 x 800) touchscreen, which comes paired with a powerful 1.4GHz single-core processor - despite the handset's svelte 10.9mm-thick frame. This speed is further boosted with the...

Huawei Honor U8860 Review

 

The mid-range smartphone segment is always an exciting place to be in. Here we have phones that offer the perfect compromise between features, performance and value and every once in a while, we'll get a high-end phone that drops in to make way for new...

At a street price of Rs. 19,900, the Huawei Honor U8860 is playing with the big boys, like the Sony Ericsson Xperia Pro, Xperia Sola, Galaxy S Plus and the HTC One V. Perhaps its closest competitor is the Galaxy S Plus due to the same screen size. This...
