Honor 6 is the first smart-phone to be released under the Honor brand last year. It is priced in the sub-Rs 20,000 segment, and offers a lot of bang for the bucks. At this price range, the Honor 6 is certainly a wiser choice than the recently launched Xiaomi Mi 4. The two smartphones are similarly priced and offer a lot for their price tags.

In this department, the Honor 6 scores higher than Mi 4. Where the latter is priced at Rs 19,999, the former is available at Rs 17,999. While both are available on Flipkart, the Honor 6 has the advantage of being easily available, as compared to Xiaomi’s frustrating flash sales.

Size

Both the smartphones feature a 5-inch display and hence the overall form factor is almost the same. The Honor 6 is however slimmer with dimensions of 139.6×69.7×7.5mm, when compared to the Mi 4’s dimensions of 139.2×68.5×8.9mm. The former also weighs less at 130 grams, when compared to the Mi 4’s 149 grams.

Display

Both the smartphones have a 5-inch display with full HD (1920×1080 pixels) resolution. The Honor 6’s display is scratch-proof, thanks to Gorilla Glass 3 and also boasts fingerprint resistant coating. Mi 4’s display, on the other hand, comes with One Glass Solution, which Xiaomi claims is not only slimmer than traditional Gorilla Glass, but also provides resistance to scratches and shattering.

Both the displays also support glove mode, which as the name suggests, means that the display is responsive even when wearing gloves. Both the smartphones also offer display temperature and saturation controls for users to tweak as per their liking.

Power

The Honor 6 is powered by Huawei’s Kirin 920 octa-core processor (1.7GHz Cortex-A15 quad-core + 1.3GHz Cortex-A7 quad-core), paired with Mali-T628 MP4 GPU, and 3GB of RAM. In comparison, the Mi 4 is powered by a 2.5GHz Snapdragon 801 quad-core processor paired with Adreno 330 GPU and 3GB of RAM.

Both the smartphones are capable of handling everything that is thrown towards them. The difference, however, is that unlike the Honor 6, the Mi 4 heats up when playing high-performance games.

Storage

This is where the Honor 6 has the biggest advantage over the Mi 4. The latter doesn’t have an option to expand the internal storage. The Honor 6, on the other hand, offers 16GB internal storage, and also lets users expand it using a microSD card.

Cameras

Both the smartphones have a 13-megapixel camera at the back with a myriad of features. The camera on the Honor 6 features Sony’s fourth generation BSI sensor, f/2.0 aperture, hardware-based HDR, and dual-LED flash. The Mi 4 camera, on the other hand, features Sony IMX 214 sensor, f/1.8 aperture, auto-focus in 0.3 seconds, HDR, and support for 4K video recording.

Both the smartphones offer fairly simple camera UI for amateur photographers. For professionals, there are many manual camera controls as well. The Honor 6’s camera can be fired up in less than a second, with the company claiming that the camera can be started in 0.6 seconds when the screen is off.

Coming to front cameras, selfie lovers will be more than satisfied with the 5-megapixel snapper on the Honor 6 and the 8-megapixel snapper on the Mi 4. Both the cameras offer wide-angle lenses so you can fit all your friends into groupies.

Battery

The two smart phones are quite closely matched in this department too. The Mi 4 has a 3,080mAh battery, while the Honor 6 has a slightly larger 3,100mAh battery. The Honor 6’s battery is easily able to survive a day, so you don’t have to carry around a charger with you. Even with heavy usage, the battery is able to survive for around 7-8 hours. The Mi 4’s battery too is good enough to last for more than a day. On heavy usage, it can easily survive for about 7-8 hours.

The Honor 6 is bundled with a 5.0V 2.0A charger, which can charge the smartphone from zero to 100 percent in little over two hours. The Mi 4 also comes with a fast charging mode that the company claims can charge the phone to 60 percent in less than an hour.

Software

The two smartphones run on Android KitKat wrapped under the company’s respective UI. The Honor 6 features the Emotion UI 2.3, while the Mi 4 runs on MIUI 6.0. The Emotion UI offers a bunch of nifty features including pre-installed wallpapers which change every time you wake up your phone, quick-access menu on the lock screen, and shortcuts on the notification center among others.

The MIUI 6.0 too brings in a lot of new features and is a big overhaul over MIUI 5. In comparison to the Honor 6’s UI, Xiaomi’s UI looks and feels much more modern as well. It now features a much flatter look, and improved animations. Additionally, the UI also brings in improved performance and security, and improved notifications, among others.
