The Honor 6 includes a 5-inch screen with narrow bezels. It features an IPS display with full HD (1920×1080 pixels) resolution and a density of 445ppi. Huawei has also offered a feature called “Screen saving mode,” which essentially scales down the display resolution from 1080p to 720p. The company claims that enabling this feature can boost battery life by nearly 20 percent. Additionally, there is a display temperature setting, which lets users control the intensity of colors.

The smartphone is powered by Huawei’s Kirin 920 octa-core processor (1.7GHz Cortex-A15 quad-core + 1.3GHz Cortex-A7 quad-core). The processor is paired with Mali-T628 MP4 GPU, and 3GB of RAM. Such processing chops ensure that all apps, games and services are handled smoothly.
On the photography front, the Honor 6 features a 13-megapixel rear camera, and a 5-megapixel snapper at the front. Of note is the selfie camera, which offers decent performance for its price range. In addition to starting a timer while clicking selfies, the camera app also opens a “selfie window,” which ensures that you are looking directly at the lens. The front camera also has a wide lens that clicks photos at 16:9 ratio ensuring all your friends fit into the groupies.
The Android 4.4.2 KitKat on the smartphone is wrapped under Emotion UI 2.3, which offers a bunch of nifty features. The lock screen scrolls through a host of pre-installed wallpapers every time you wake up the display, and there is also a quick-access menu with shortcuts to essential features.
The Notification center has two panels — one for notifications, and the other for settings. The former includes frequently visited options like Wi-Fi, Sound, Airplane mode, Bluetooth, GPS, flashlight, and the brightness bar among others.
Another feature included is the IR Blaster with a companion app called Smart Controller. As you would expect, you can control your TV, set-top-box, DVD player, and ACs with the remote. In our testing the app worked just fine.
The Honor 6 includes a 3,100mAh battery. In day-to-day usage, the battery is easily able to survive a day, so you won’t have to carry around a charger with you. Even with heavy usage, the battery is still able to survive for around 7-8 hours.
Lastly, the Honor 6’s best feature is the price tag — Rs 19,999. It is one of the few smartphones that offers such specifications and features at this price range. It is also what makes it among the best value for money smartphone under Rs 20,000.
