Conclusion: Despite being one of the blandest looking phones we’ve seen for a very long time and Android 2.3 being behind the curb, the Huawei Honour U8860 still manages to deliver great value and performance.
Pros: Great screen, Good battery life, Solid camera performance
Cons: Bland design, Unintuitive camera UI, Android 2.3 is out of date
Summary: The Huawei Honor is a bit on the modest side compared to other smartphones out there but Huawei didn't make this a flagship for no good reason. It has a wide range of features with some you can find in more powerful smartphones out in the market.
Huawei Honour review – a midrange, somewhat high-end smartphone
22 June 2012
Conclusion: Huawei Honour is far from perfect. We’ve had more than a few bad things to say about it. Nonetheless, it’s still a decent option for people who want a midrange phone with extra specs – not to mention an amazing battery life.
Conclusion: We've had the U8860 Honor by Huawei in our possession for well over a month during which we used it the same way as our own smartphones (best way to find bugs) and i have to say that it impressed us all with its flawless and bug-free operation (even the LG Optimus 2X has quite a few glitches) and...
Pros: - Quite Fast/Smooth Operation, - High Resolution (480x854p) 4" FWVGA Screen, - Custom Android Interface, - 8mp HD Camera With LED Flash, - Rear Cover Color Variety, - Free Huawei Cloud + Drive Storage (16Gb), - Audio Quality, - Call Quality
Cons: - Rear Cover Quality, - No Video Call (May Get Resolved In Future Updates), - Price
Excerpt: Quite frankly, we weren’t very excited about reviewing what we expected would be another plasticky smartphone from Huawei, that was halfway where it was actually supposed to be. However, we would be the first to admit that perceptions were turned on the head by the Honor.
Conclusion: Probably the biggest advantage of the Huawei Honor is its great value-for-money ratio. It can be bought for about $370 off contract, and at that price point, no other brand name company would be able to match its specs.
Pros: Good interface, Built-in cloud and back-up features, High-resolution display, Good value-for-money ratio
Cons: Plasticky feel, Flawed camera, Display is not sensitive enough
Excerpt: Not that the Huawei Honor (which is spelled in Europe Honour) is anything new but it took Huawei a little bit longer to bring the stand-by monster to Germany. Powered by a 1.4 GHz single-core CPU, it was initially launched with Android 2.3 / Gingerbread .
Summary: Huawei has recently unveiled a new Android smartphone, the Huawei Honor. On the surface, the Huawei Honor looks much alike with the Samsung Galaxy S II. The device has a 10.9mm thin at its thickest point and weighs approximately 140g.
Conclusion: With all the awesome features and comparable components, the Huawei Honor is one of the best phones put out by Huawei. Though it may not be the best of the best, it is certainly a top-of-the-line high quality product sure to make many customers happy.
Conclusion: The Huawei Honor is a capable device but it would definitely have a hard time dealing with its “Made in China” stigma. Huawei is a major telecommunications player and has enough leverage to cut deals with telecoms and we’re sure it will get over the not so noble origin and turn the situation in its...
Cons: Cheapish gloss, Real smudge magnet, Poor screen quality, Non hot-swappable microSD card, No hardware shutter key, No native video calling despite built-in VGA camera
