Huawei Honor is the current flagship for this Chinese ICT giant. The device may be a Chinese native but this monster phone is genuinely engineered and developed. Huawei Honor is a modest 4-inch power house but is fast running in a 1.4 GHz SnapDragon S2 and Adreno 205 graphics.
This device may not be the lightest chunk around but it does promise a lighter feel with 140g and a manageable 122 x 61 x 11 mm dimensions. You have to be skeptical when you see the cheap-ish finish this Android device but you may want to give yourselves the benefit of the doubt on how it would perform software-wise.
Huawei team promised the Honor users for an ICS update since it comes out with Android 2.3.5 (Gingerbread) out of the box. It also packs HDR2 8MP rear-camera and 0.3MP secondary shooter for video calling. Its speed is adequate enough for its single-core CPU. You may want to question why Huawei only had a single-core for it’s flagship, the answer is all about price and performance.
So, the mere fact that this device is only priced Php 13,990 would cure your apprehensive thoughts. Aside from that, it also gives you orgasmic juices with its power-pack battery performance. According to the Huawei team, it promises up to three days on normal use, 3 weeks on stand-by, 9 hours’ worth of talk time, 8 hours of web surfing and 6 hours’ worth of non-stop gaming with its 1900mAh battery. The performance is way better than any other flagship royalties.
