The Chinese manufacturer, Huawei is soon going to launch their latest smartphone Huawei Honor which will run the latest Android Ice Cream Sandwich OS. After Google Nexus, Huawei Honor will become the second smartphone which features Ice Cream Sandwich in India. Probably you can’t consider Huawei Honor as a high-end smartphone compared to its dual-sore competitors.
Huawei Honor features a 4-inch TFT display which offers FWVGA (854 x 480) resolution. The display is average though colors looks good but sometimes appears distorted in direct sunlight. Viewing angle will also disappoint you as you may have a difficulty in reading text or watching movies from the side.
The 3.5mm headphone jack is placed on the right side and a screen lock / power button on the left. Now the positioning of the power button seems quite uncomfortable while holding it in your left hand. The volume rocker is also on the left hand side the micro-USB charging port lies on the bottom side of phone. And four navigation buttons are on the bottom of display. Huawei Honor is powered by a single-sore 1.4 GHz Qualcomm MSM8255T S2 Snapdragon and Adreno 205 GPU. You can also find this chipset in Nokia Lumia 800. Huawei Honor also features 512 MB RAM.
The Huawei Honor has a nice 8 megapixels shooter with a LED flash and two megapixels front facing camera. The image quality of Honor in a low-light is great and is enhanced by HDR. Huawei Honor can also take 720p HD video but it is not that effective.
