huawei honor 6

As rumored, Huawei announced a new high-end smartphone today called the Honor 6. It's boasting a 5-inch 1080p display, 3 GB of RAM, and a Kirin 920 octa-core processor made of four A15 cores and 4 A7 cores which Huawei thinks compares to the Snapdragon 805. The Huawei Honor 6 runs Android 4.4.2 with their usual customizations on top.

The front face manages to cover 75.7% with display leaving only 2.86 mm of bezel. For reference, last year's LG G2 had a 2.65 mm bezel. The body is made of aluminum and is designed to dissipate heat as efficiently as possible. To top it all off, there's a 13 megapixel camera on the back and a 5 megapixel shooter on the front, Cat. 6 LTE, dual-band Wi-Fi, 16 GB or 32 GB of local storage with expandable microSD.

On paper it all sounds well and good, but we aren't hearing much about release geographies or pricing. Do you think it stands a chance against giants like the Samsung Galaxy S5, even if the Honor 6 stays in China?

Do I have a problem if I wished this had a 6 inch display due to the name?

Also, does it mean I have a problem if I read it as the Huawei Hodor 6?

Just think back to the days of CRT. a 15 inch monitor only had 14 inch view-able.

I do think Android Central should report more on phones from Chinese brands. They're usually much better value than from the big-name brands.

Dizfunctions says:

These phones are more affordable and better designed than some of the stuff here...

I don't care about looks, I only care about features. SD card and IR makes it better then phone like the opo or oppo

I was waiting for a device the size of the Nexus to show up with better specs. I still prefer stock though

"...which Huawei thinks compares to the Snapdragon 805."

That's awesome, in the same way that "I think my Mazda 6 compares to a Porsche 911." Did Huawei offer any kind of proof of this, even if it's just a bunch of meaningless bar charts showing optimized benchmark results?

Pleasewakeup says:

Actually they did, Huawei provided a lot of benchmark results! At least from the benchmarks it shows a higher scoor than snapdragon 805. Probably Huawei is still known as a cheap phone maker in the consumer market, but please do some background research and you will find actally they are the largest telecom equipment supplyer in the world. They've already worked on their own chips for more than 15 years and they did a great work this time!

Pretty impressive :) I ordered the Huawei Ascend Mate 2. So excited to try it out :)

You have a Life Pure XL? I'm considering getting that phone. I've ordered the Ascend Mate 2 but I fear it may be too large. How do you like the XL?
