Huawei Honor 6


We all have heard of Huawei, a well-known company for manufacturing routers and Wi-Fi. The company decided to enter the smartphone market by launching its Honor series of smartphones. Huawei Honor 6 was launched last August and attracted much attention due to its mind-blowing specifications and budget price. The phone is a complete Chinese smartphone, as the Soc used in this set is completely designed in-house by the Chinese manufacturer. Even the Emotion UI skin that runs on the phone is completely developed in-house, thus making it a complete Chinese wonder.

Honor Design Specifications:

The phone has a traditional design but still looks very compact and elegant. The faux glass back panel provided in the phone seems to take its inspiration from the Apple iPhone 4S; the only problem with the rear panel is that it’s susceptible to marks and scratches. An artificial metallic trim along the phone’s edges runs that provides a stylish look. The camera with an LED flashlight is provided at the top left of the back panel, while the power button and volume buttons are provided at the phone’s right edge. The Micro USB port is provided at the bottom of the phone, and the 3.5mm audio jack and IR Blaster are provided at the top.


Being entirely made of high-quality plastic, the phone is very lightweight, weighing 130 grams only. The phone is quite handy as its dimensions are only 5.50 x 2.74 x 0.30 inches. The phone is available in two colors, White and Black.

Display Features:

The Huawei Honor 6 features a 5.0-inch LCD capacitive touchscreen with 16M colors, providing a 1080 x 1920 pixels screen resolution. The phone has 445 pixels per inch, thus producing a stunning and colorful display. The viewing angles are not great, mainly because the show is LCD-based instead of the standard IPS display. That said, it’s nothing to worry about for the common users; it’s hardly noticeable. The display can pose a problem in bright sunlight; you might have to manage the screen’s brightness. But then again, the phone features one of the best displays at the current price tag.

Memory Storage:

The Huawei Honor 6 comes with 16GB internal memory, which can be expanded to 64GB using the Micro SD card slot provided in the phone. The phone comes with 3 GB RAM.


A unique HiSilicon Kirin 920 chipset powers the phone clocked to Quad-core 1.7 GHz Cortex-A15 & Quad-core 1.3 GHz Cortex-A7 processor. The special feature of the processor is that HiSilicon, a subsidiary of Huawei, indigenously develops it. The processor proves powerful enough to provide a lag-free experience. The processor offers encouraging benchmark scores and proves blazing fast for carrying common functions with no lag. High-end games, such as Asphalt 8, run with almost no lag. The performance of this phone’s processor is comparable to flagship smartphones.

Camera Features:

A Dual-LED flashlight assists the 13 MP rear camera provided in the phone, while the front shooter is equipped with 5MP. The camera does HD video recording at frames like 1080p@30fps. The phone manages to take good snaps in dim lighting conditions, too, but we observed that the images clicked in both dark and bright lighting conditions had high noise levels. The video recorded by the phone has exposure control and image stabilization issues. The camera is a mixed bag and performs averagely, but the front shooter works surprisingly well, making it great for selfie lovers.

Battery Backup Life:

The Huawei Honor 6 is powered by a non-removable 3000 mAh Li-Po battery that works decently. By using the various power-saving profiles in the software, you can considerably extend the battery life. The battery works just like the average smartphone present in its segment.

Technology Aspects:

The phone runs on Android OS version 4.4.2 (KitKat), with a planned upgrade to version 6.0 (Marshmallow), with the help of Huawei’s Emotion UI 3.1 skin. The Emotion UI running on the phone has cool features like the Suspend button, a mobile button that houses various utility options. Again, the UI doesn’t feature an app drawer, which might pose a problem for the stock Android users. The pre-installed apps on the phone are kept to a bare minimum, which is a great thing. The phone offers a power-packed experience with its blazing-fast processor, optional Dual SIM, and Dolby Digital Plus audio enhancement, making it one of the best smartphones in the market.


Overall, the phone is one of the best smartphones in its price segment. The phone provides compelling and lag-free performance while its display is crisp and full of color. Also, topped with many connectivity options and an amazing front camera, the phone is a real winner. The phone has received a Features score of 83 and a review score of 85 on Pricejugaad, thus giving it a very favorable outlook. Indeed, the phone is one of the best smartphones in the market.
