The year 2014 has seen Chinese smartphone companies trying to overwhelm Indian buyers with choices. Making this an even sweeter deal is the fact that many of the smartphones that have been introduced have top-of-the-line specifications and are not priced exorbitantly. More importantly, the perception that Chinese smartphones are either cheap knock-offs or of poor quality is slowly being erased from the minds of skeptical Indian consumers.

Honor 6 Summary

Huawei - one of the world’s leading smartphone manufacturers - is a brand known in India mostly for selling routers and data cards. The company introduced its flagship smartphone - Huawei Honor 6 - in an exclusive collaboration with an e-commerce outlet. This smartphone has a custom-built Kirin 920 which has blazing fast performance almost making us feel that its asking price was too good to be true. Although, we thought the phone had an uninspiring design and the camera took average photographs.

  • Really, worth the money.
    Gokul Rangan (Oct 12, 2014) on Gadgets 360
    I bought this phone very recently. I try and use most of my devices to optimum level and push them to their extreme levels to test their performance. This Huawei Honor 6 wouldn't just give up. Performance was really impressive. 1. Battery is 3100mAh, not 300mAh. 2. Honor 6 has Emotion UI which is incredibly awesome and which is fused with Android KitKat; user interface feels very easy and handy. 3. Honor 6 has 1.3GHz Octa-Core Krin 920 processor which is known to challenge Snapdragon. With all these impressive features, you can buy it for ?19,999/- which is awesome. I'd suggest everybody to buy this phone. Believe me, you definitely won't regret it.

  • Asian Monster - Multimedia Doer
    Heri Susanto (Sep 7, 2014) on Gadgets 360
    I bought the Chinese version of this 'monster'. I like the feeling of holding this, such a real-feel to hold a big version of iPhone. 'engine' wise, this phone is awesome, especially for its fast camera shutter plus its wide lens. internet connection is also awesome. however, the non-Chinese users will have a pretty much difficulty to set the google aps for the very first time. other issue is the features, too many common features yet a unique fr this phone. music is awesome, especially when combined with good player like poweramp. suggest to own by them who love multi media rather than office performance. Need a slight of improvement to catch up another asian players, especially the rising china phone maker.

  • Awesome phone
    Amit Bhatia (Nov 13, 2014) on Gadgets 360
    Considering specs and pricing the handset is quite good in decent price range available here in India. coupled with the seller option of EMI and Exchange offer its stands as value for money. Its sturdy style and long lasting battery with 3GB RAM score a huge plus point as per other handsets available in India in this price range. Here is my personal review athttp://abhatia.net/huawei-honor-6-review/

  • Mocking of Mobile phone
    Sanmay Satpathy (Jun 4, 2016) on Gadgets 360
    I suggest to customers not to purchase this mobile set or any other mobile set from huawei . Initially I was very happy with the performance of the phone. But after 6 months the performance drastically deteriorated. It has some problem with its OS for which the contacts in the contacts app will not appear. At times it will get heated up and it will seize to function. At other forums I have even heard of problem like switching on and off in loop after charging. Guys this is not at all a reliable phone. Even I have seen similar problems with Honor 4x too. So do not purchase huawei products if you do not want headaches. I am really fed up with this mobile.

  • Fabulous Smart Phone - Go for Honor 6.
    Vetukuri Prabhakara Raju (Mar 3, 2019) on Flipkart
    Probably the best smartphone for the price with so many features packed in. It is better than some more expensive phones of up to 30 K price range. Ease of operation, fantastic response, high power battery, 4G support, 3 GB RAM, Expandable memory, powerful processor. Good for a long time to come. I bought honor 6 for my son and was so surprised that he likes it so much. He is very informative and highly technical and doesn't like anything unless really worth. Already upgraded to UI 3.0 and it feels great kitkat works great, no lag, no hanging and no issues. I am so impressed that I bought my second piece of Honor 6 just last week..

  • An Honor to own the Honor 6
    Deepak Shankar R (Mar 3, 2019) on Flipkart
    Its been two weeks with the Huawei Honor 6 and the experience has so far been outstanding. I would like to go into the performance of the device without much ado. Design and Looks - The phone bears resemblance to the iPhone 5 in some areas. Phone looks good, weighs just 130g, easy to carry around. Phone sure looks good doesnt feel cheap as was reported in some reviews. It however lacks grip and may slip, buying a case would be a good idea. Display - So crisp a display havent seen in any phones yet. Even the Screen quality in the Screen saving mode is amazing that u barely feel that its running on non-HD mode. The Auto brightness setting works well and sensitive enough. Interface - EMUI 2.3 is good but without the App Drawer doesnt feel reassuring. The interface is butter smooth, no lag experienced. The lock screen is a treat for the eyes and Huawei updates the pictures regularly. Best lock screen ever. Call quality - I was using a Micromax Unite 2 before buying this, I can really feel the much improved voice quality of the Honor 6. Voice clarity is amazing, never heard anything better from a mobile phone. The phone picks up signal well, no issues at all. Internet - 3G experience has been very satisfying and WiFi performance was very good, gets good signal even far away from WiFi router. Stock browser is good and Chrome works well too, need for another browser not felt. Gaming - Played Asphalt 6 and the game runs smoothly even in the highest resolution setting. The acceerometer is very sensitive and makes gaming a delight Battery - On a full charge, the phone can last a full day even with heavy usage. You can easiliy make the phone battery last for two days with 3G always on, provided you dont play any game or stream long videos. The charger provided (2A charger) is very good and charges the device to 100% from zero in less than a hour and half. Battery life is good Heating - The only drawback I felt was that the phone heats up just five minutes into playing a game. Even not so graphic intensive game like Fruit Ninja heats up the phone in about 10 minutes of game play. No heating issue observed in non gaming usage though. Camera - The camera is nice takes good quality snaps. Cant expect anything more. Memory- The entire available memory (nearly 11 GB) on the device can be used for Apps, so install any number of Apps. 3 GB of ram is more than enough for the device. Conclusion - Huawei Honor 6 is a very good value for money option. For 17,650 this phone packs quite a lot. The only concern is the absence of Huawei Service centres in small cities.
