It’s been a week since I took the Honor 6 out and gave my main phone a much needed vacation, and the experience has been fantastic!

At first everyone thought finally made the big switch and took a bite of the so-called forbidden fruit for “android” loyalists.

Is that an iPhone 4s? was the common question, to which I’d answer, “Nope, its something much better.”


I’d then let them try it out and most found it very intuitive and had no problems about the interface. They also liked the clear colorful icons and even the customizable menu transition effects.

I think it is also very convenient that everything is there at a swipe and you don’t have to go to another menu page to access the rest of your apps.


The Honor 6 sports a glass on glass body, much like the Xperia Z3 but I think looks more like the iPhone 4s because of the shape and the silver trimmings around its sides. At 5.0 inches, the Honor 6 feels quite good to hold and just the right size for single-handed operation.

From its front angle, the phone looks like a blank slate as Huawei opted to omit any physical or capacitive control buttons. The volume rocker and power button is found on the right side, while the 3.5mm audio port and IR blaster are found at the top. The speaker mic is found at the bottom along with the micro-USB port. In keeping with its clean design the micro-SIM card and the microSD card slots are both found beneath a flap compartment on the right side as well.

The Honor 6 sports a full HD 1080 resolution with a pixel density of 441ppi making watching videos really enjoyable. The screen is very bright and crisp and colors and contrast are quite balanced. Sound quality from the speakers is good but improves a lot when using headphones/earphones instead.

As for specifications, the Honor 6 utilizes Huawei’s own Kirin 920 chipset, a 1.7GHz octa-core with a Mali-T624 graphics and a whopping 3GB of RAM which is very unusual for a phone in its category. With specs like these its no surprise that it all the apps runs smoothly and playing games such as Real Racing, Asphalt 8 and Marvel Quest of Champions, which are pretty graphic intensive, run flawlessly on the Honor 6.

Finally, like a lot of people out there, especially Pinoys, the measure of a really good smartphone is in its camera. No matter how high the specs or how clear the screen, I think a lot will agree that a good camera is one of the top considerations when buying a phone—and the Honor 6 impresses.

The 13MP rear camera is a Sony with an IMX214 sensor and photos looked sharp and clean, much better than the quality of other more expensive phones.

Here are some of the sample photos I took using the rear camera.

Selfies also look good on the Honor 6 and its front cam is capable of showing more detailed photos.

I have yet to measure its battery life, but a single charge could last me a day of my usual call, texts, email and facebook updates and on high brightness.

Like I mentioned from the start, the Honor 6 is a very impressive phone. I’ll be bringing it to my out of town trip today for more testing and will give you a full review in the coming days.
