Huawei Honor – Killer Specs at Unbeatable Prices

Huawaei, a giant device maker is now stepping it’s foot in India. With a couple of phones and a tablet already in it’s portfolio, Huawei is now ready to shake the floor with it’s upcoming smartphone Honor. In it’s effort to get the word out, the company organised a blogger’s meet inviting top bloggers from all around India to get their hands on the two new mobiles – Honor and Ideos X5. And yes, I was present as well.

Honor and Ideos X5

Huawei Honor boasts a 1900mAh batterly which (allegedly) lasts up to 35% longer than the competition.

With this new series of phones, Huawei also launched Cloud+ which provides 16GB of free online storage to users for free. Amazing apps like Message+, Phone Finder and App Store make Cloud+ one of the best cloud solutions for any mobile user.

I used both the phones for about half and hour each. For the price, they are the best deal you can get in the market at the moment.

Check out this short video of the form factor and basic usage of Huawei Honor.
