The Huawei Honor Holly would easily win a prize in a tongue-twister competition, but its alliterative name aside, this phone is the Chinese company's attempt to enter the highly contested budget smartphone segment.

Honor Holly Summary

Alliterative naming convention aside, Huawei Honor Holly is a really good budget smartphone that can go head-to-head with the Moto E and the Xiaomi Redmi 1S in a battle of the budget smartphones. It has a big 5-inch 720p screen, 16GB internal storage space and the option to expand it by up to 32GB using a microSD card, fast performance and a decent battery life. One cannot really ask for more in this price range.

  • Surprise in the Box !
    Nitin Bhatia (Oct 27, 2014) on Gadgets 360
    I received the phone a day after Diwali. Kudos to Flipkart for making it possible as they had mentioned they would send it by Nov. 7th. Now on to review : HONOR HOLLY (It comes from an iPhone 5 user for years) I bought this phone for my dad who has never used a touch phone nor has he ever been introduced to the word internet. Under my impression Android has always been confusing but Kit Kat 4.4.2 supported with Huawei emotion interface makes it a cake walk for any beginner to understand a touch phone. Design: By all means Huawei Honor Holly is 5 star for its design. By no angle does it look a phone worth 6999. Its sleek, very light weight, white glossy back makes the phone look classy. Holly is slimmest among all the phone available at the same price. SCREEN: 5Inch screen, Amazing display, when it mentions 16 million colors, it means it. The phone just looks amazing. Touch is supreme matching to the most expensive phones in the world. STORAGE: Its massive 16 GB internal memory, for anyone who is not a movie or song junkie you dont need more. INTERNET: It was very easy to detect and connect to Wifi / The place where there is slow speed the phone does take time to load up things. But all looks great on high speed internet areas and wifi. Phone also supports Hotspot / GPS Navigation enabling. In all great experience. BATTERY: It comes with a massive removable battery. The life looks great for a phone loaded with so many feature. Problem is in charging the phone. It charges very very slowly. So one might have to wait for ages for it to charge to hundred percent. (May thats a problem in my phone only) CAMERA : Features I have never seen in any phone were there in here is the Camera section of this phone. Face Detection and clearing : This feature detects your face and clears all wrinkles / blck spots etc. Automatically. You have many color and cropping postioning features. Panorama Pictures can be taken Horizontally and Vertically as well. (UNIQUE from many high class camera phones) Also has a wonderful live picture option. Sharing of pics too can be done in all possible platforms directly after clicking the pic. picture quality is good. However with flash i saw some white tones coming in. But tht is not a big demerit. SOUND : Its a flaw huawei needs to work on. The phones audio is low. I would rate it 2.5 out of 5 for this demerit. For those who can live with low volume outputs and can use speakers / earphones this is one area you will have to live with. PROS : - Great Design (Best in Class) - Huge Internal Memory - Good 8 MB camera - HD Recording - Cool auto Edit & Edit features. - KITKAT & Huawei Emotion Interface gells well. - Display and touch is great. 5" Screen - 1 Ghz processor - 16 GB internaly Memory - Good Battery Back Up - Very Light weight. CONS : - Sound Output weak. - No Covers - Screen Guards available yet. - Slow Charging. 0 to 100% in 3-4 Hours. Smtimes more. In all its a wonderful phone. So

  • ITS NOT CDMA. ITS WCDMA WHICH MEANS IT SUPPORTS 3G
    Rajasekaran Narayanasamy (Oct 31, 2014) on Gadgets 360
    FOR ALL YOUR KIND INFORMATION THAT HONOR HOLLY DOESNT SUPPORT CDMA. ITS DUAL GSM SLOTS WITH ONE SUPPORTING FOR WCDMA(3G). OH GOD. I GOT CONFUSED SEEING NDTV GADGETS SPEC BUT AFTER USING BY MYSELF ONLY FOUND ITS NOT CDMA SIM SUPPORTING MOBILE. PLS RECTIFY THE ERROR SO THAT NONE ELSE GETS CONFUSED OR MISGUIDED. APART FROM THAT IRS A GOOD MOBILE WITH GOOD FEATURES WITHOUT MUCH LAG. ONE CAN SURE GO FOR IT, EXTRA HEAVY USERS AVOID, OTHER THAN THAT IT STANDS AS IT CLAIMS,
