Honor 6 Overview
For The Brave. Honor is a new name in the smartphone industry and one looking to shake things up. It takes a brave contender to go toe-to-toe with giants, however that's exactly what Honor's #forthebrave campaign and brand is all about.
Honor are looking to provide powerful and affordable smartphones that fly in the face of big name competitors. Smartphones which do everything you expect and more, without you paying extra for features, technology and advertising you don't need. Honor don't have stores or sales specialists - they simply have great phones and a support team.
Sitting behind Honor and responsible for getting the products to market is the communications technology specialist Huawei. Huawei are already established in the smartphone world with their own branded phones, but having used their considerable research and development expertise to help Honor start up as a new brand is an entirely different team.
With Huawei's components you know that an Honor phone has high quality hardware; the design, support and ideas however are 100% Honor.
The Honor 6 is run by an incredible octa (8) core processor and 3 GB of RAM, so it is ready for just about anything that can be thrown at it in today's smartphone environment. Browsing, downloads and video calling all at once? No problem. Jumping into a high end game such as Asphalt or NOVA? Leave it to Honor. High end performance at a fraction of the price.
What else matters to most aside from performance? The screen and the camera are the next highest on the list so Honor have gone all out here too. A 5 inch Full HD display with anti-fingerprint coating scores the first marks. The second is covered by an excellent 4th generation 13MP Sony module for the main camera, and a high resolution 5MP front-facing shooter for selfies and Snaps.
There are a few extra features to set the Honor 6 apart from other brands looking to offer a quality mix of price and performance. The outermost layer of glass found on many touchscreens has been removed, so the screen is thinner and closer to your touch.
Honor has also included a fast snapshot mode. You don't need to unlock the screen to take a photo - the Fast Capture Shutter only needs 0.6 seconds to take a picture.
Finally the 3,100 mAh battery is already large by current standards, yet Honor have increased its performance with patented SmartPower 2.0 technology. This provides an extra 30% power and the Honor 6 should be set to last you 2 full days from a single charge under normal use.
