It’s been more than a month since my unboxing of the Huawei Honor 6 smartphone. Since then, a lot has happened from the company. They have recently announced its bigger brother Honor 6+ and its little brother Honor 4C. Even if Honor 6 came out in the Philippines late last year, it is still one of the compelling offers on the mid-priced sub–15,000 smartphone. In Lazada, it has also slashed some price since the release of their new smartphones to be more competitive. I’ve had the phone for more than three months now and I could say I have full tested the phone during my travels in Palawan, Cebu, Negros and Masbate. Here’s my take on the Honor 6 smartphone.
I’ve been long familiar with Huawei devices for quite a while now but more in line with their connectivity devices like pocket wifi, routers and usb dongles/wingles. It’s just so timely my old phone drowned and I was offered to review one of Huawei’s recent releases, the Honor 6. The Huawei Honor 6 is pretty interesting offering. At first look, people may be quick to judge that it’s a Chinese iPhone-copycat but it’s a highly capable smartphone with pretty impressive hardware in an affordable package. Let’s take a close look at the key features.
I have been using the Huawei E355 for half a year now. I went to buy one last November 2012 as I was looking for a mobile wifi solution while I travel to several places for a few months. I bring along my MacBook, my iPad and mobile phones with me and wanted to somehow connect all devices. A simple datacard dongle wouldn’t suffice as it could only connect me to my main device. A pocket wifi was also an option but it was way over my budget at that time. I found that the Huawei E355 struck a balance in terms of cost and features.
