The Huawei Honor 6 dual SIM together with its mono-SIM sister model, the first of Representatives, Huawei Honor series in Germany. In China the Unternarke is already with several different models at the start, to be at least partially inserted also with us. With just under 400 Euro Sale Price Honor 6 Dual-SIM is significantly above the Huawei Topmodells Ascend P7 settled – reason enough to look at performance, features and quality.
Android 4.4 with Emotion UI 2.3
When the operating system and user interface, the Honor 6 holds dual SIM with the best models in our mobile test with: Even the S5 Duos andHTC One M8 Dual offer Android 4.4, the latter end of November another update scored donated to 4.4.4. The optical surface of Emotion UI is also in the other Huawei phones used such as the Ascend series. It is – like all graphical user interfaces – a matter of taste, but equipped overall very thoughtfully and with some individual settings.
5.0 inch display with Full HD
Who wants to play in the league of the 5-inch top models, for a full HD display almost mandatory. With about 440 ppi can be even with genauestem inspection no pixel steps in the illustrations recognize. The larger the actual screen, the more important for a (somewhat) easy one-handed operation, that a narrow frame for compact dimensions provides. Is the Honor 6 Dual sim the case, since much less frame surface is hardly possible. Percentage, the display is more than 75% of total area of the front side, a peak.
Mobile Internet with LTE: only to 1800 MHz
LTE (4G) is missing almost all marketed in Germany dual SIM phones, only the flagship of Samsung and HTC (see above) as well as individual China phones offer as LTE dual SIM phones the fastest transmission standard to date. The Honor 6 even supports LTE Cat6 what up to 300 Mbit / s makes it possible, while almost all other (also single-SIM) phones / s are equipped “only” for LTE Cat4 with up to 150 Mbit.However, this is more a theoretical advantage, because for once the respective mobile radio network (as well as the own cell phone contract or the Internet Flat) must provide a correspondingly fast transmission.A corresponding availability in Germany is currently planned only from 2015 onwards. The mobile network is in any case an important keyword: The Honor 6 is namely designed for the German market and its mobile radio frequencies so that it indeed supports LTE, but only one of the three in our company network frequencies – and just not the most common frequency bands 800 MHz and 2600 MHz.
|model number||Dual-SIM||LTE FDD frequencies||LTE TDD frequencies
(in Germany not available)
|H60-L02||Yes||1800 MHz ,
|H60-L12||Yes||1800 MHz ,
The 1800 MHz band is planned from Telekom and E-Plus, and also especially in metropolitan areas, in the country of supply in this volume is rather poor. Anyone wishing to use 4G, should pay attention to both its network provider as well as the frequencies available on site: see also the notes on HTC One M8 .
SIM1 and SIM2
For surfing only SIM1 is really good to use basically because it has access to GSM, UMTS, HSPA + and LTE. The second SIM can indeed also send mobile and receive data, but only in the 2G network via GPRS.
Processor and memory
Huawei relies on its own processing power and ample memory. The built-in 8-core processor with the label “HiSilicon Kirin 920” is a development of the Group. Depending on the workload of the four cores (energy saving) off and co-used only when needed. In addition, the clock frequency is flexible: four cores running at 1.7 to 2.0 GHz, the other four with 1.3 to 1.7 GHz. By clocking the power consumption drops with minor demands or a fortiori in standby mode.
The Honor 6 is a 13 megapixel camera on the back, which is equipped with optical image stabilization Sony. In addition, the 5-piece lens is supported by a dual LED flash. Among the features include HDR, automatic light detection and burst mode.
With 3100 mAh lithium-polymer battery of Honor 6 Dual-SIM is excellent dimensioned. This was followed by other top models can take an example. In addition, Huawei sets with different measures on low-power mobile use – for example by the variable clock rate of the processor.So you can sometimes also more than just one day call, chat and surf with the same charge. And even with fairly intensive use an entire day inside. Like other current smartphones is an “Ultra-low-power mode” installed: If the battery level dropped to 10%, it will turn on optional and allows for significantly reduced functionality and reduced display another operating time of up to 24 hours.
The Huawei Honor 6 test is still ongoing, more details will follow shortly. But here already a preliminary conclusion: Technically targets the Honor 6 to a place near the front in our top list, quality and appearance can these positive impressions not however completely to confirm the processing, however properly. The price is compared with our leaders not quite as good as one might assume from the power values – because the choice of material is simply not as high and expensive, such as the aluminum case of the One M8. Maybe it turns out that we correct our conclusion even in one point or another. Therefore, only a preliminary rating for orientation or for those who are facing a quick purchase decision.
