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.

Let’s take a close look at the key features.
