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?

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.

Hello.
The truth that I was eager to have this terminal.
It is one of the phones that the market is expecting more.
In movilchinodualsim hope to have it soon.

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?

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!

You're pretty right! I also was amazed after realize that this was such a big brand, but the western world doesn't know that...

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?

It's always a bit controversial to compare these Chinese brands with big players like Samsung (considering only Android manufacturers), but I can't refuse that this device grabs my attention and I'd like to know more about if in fact it's a great device or it's only hype. The main myth to disclose is knowing if the Kirin 920 processor can beat Samsung's Exynos. Also, the design looks a lot like Apple, which is a downside for all the Android fans. I'd like to know if anybody would prefer this device instead an S5 or M8, what do you guys think? Check more dual SIM android devices at: http://www.dualsimandroidphones.com
