Design And Display

The Huawei Honor 6 Plus is one of the best designed smartphone currently in the market. The 5.5 inch display is fit into a sleek chassis which got premium look from every angle. The display occupies most of the space and this makes the form factor small and the phone is easy to hold. However, the glass plate at the back is prone to scratches and it is best to use the screen guard for both the front and the back which is provided in the box.

Performance

The phone managed to score 44,447 on the Antutu Benchmark. This is a rocking score and the phone is ranked above several flagships.

Regular Users: There is no task which you cannot perform on the Huawei Honor 6 Plus. Running social apps, opening multiple browser tabs and watching high definition videos, all at the same time is a piece of cake for this phone.

Gamers: The Huawei Honor 6 Plus can run light, moderate and heavy games with ease. The 3600 mAh battery ensures that you can enjoy heavy games at high graphics for longer duration. The heat factor is less as compared to other smartphones with a glass back.

Camera

You will be a bit surprised that the Huawei Honor 6 Plus got only a 8 MP rear camera. I say, do not get disheartened by the megapixel count because there are two 8 MP cams at the back. They both capture the image and bring out the best. The result is that the images got best of details and colours. You can check them out for yourself.

The last two images have been clicked using the front facing camera which is again a 8 MP cam. However, it is a single cam.

Battery

huawei honor 6 plus backA 3600 mAh battery is what powers up the Huawei Honor 6 Plus phone. This is more than enough and makes the phone a power horse in the battery department. A moderate usage saw me last  close to 2 days. With heavy use, the phone was left with around 12 percent battery the next morning. Pretty cool!

Verdict

What I Liked

The build quality and the display of the Huawei Honor 6 Plus is spot on. The dual 8 MP cams provide great shots. The battery lasts long and the UI can be tweaked a lot.

What I disliked

The backplate got glass covering over it and is prone to scratches.

To Sum Up

Go for Huawei Honor 6 Plus if you want a premium experience at a not so premium price. It is a marvelous phone and is worth every penny.
