More than enough phone for all but the most demanding of users

from Android Magazine

It’s unexpectedly hard to find things not to like about the Honor 6 Plus. If you are a big stock Android fan then you might find the Emotion UI skin jarring at first, but give it a chance and you’ll be pleasantly surprised. It’s a shame you can’t use dual SIMs and a microSD card, but this is offset by a generous 32GB of storage as standard. Honor is so confident of the phone’s battery life that you can even use it as a battery pack to charge another device!

Packs a great screen, solid build and a snapper that mostly get the job done

from TechRadar

Huawei-offshoot Honor's first widely available smartphone has impressed me on numerous occasions over the past few weeks. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending it to someone who was looking for a well specced phablet for a fair price.

If you've got the pockets for the 5.5-inch screen you'll reap the rewards, whether it's watching videos or replying to emails. Once you're used to it, it's hard going back to a smaller device. It's also hard going back to a phone you have to charge nightly....

The camera isn't going to match the Android top guns, but it's perfectly acceptable and it's nice to see Huawei experimenting with the triple threat of 8MP snappers.

Smartphone photographers are going to love it

from Softpedia

The phone offers a good value for its specs and given the amount of time we spend on Facebook and Instagram these days, the Honor 6 Plus should be quite a treat for people who love to snap photographs all day every day.

Still the fact that Huawei hasn’t bother to update some of its higher-end handsets to the latest Android software, when the rest of the tech world is already there, it’s a pretty big downside....

Also Huawei should probably stop trying to copy the iPhone design and focus on coming up with its own innovative look to better match the caliber of its handsets.

Hardware is good, software is a little lacking

from Coolsmartphone

Overall for the price the Honor 6+ is a cracking phone, with a few caveats though, all falling under the “you get what you pay for” moniker. The short version is this, the hardware is good, the build and design is good, the camera is amazing and the software is a little lacking. As I mentioned earlier Honor really need to makeup for the lack of Lollipop and the huge upcoming awkward situation regarding Android M, they need to push Lollipop out sharpish and vow to never release a phone with out of date software ever again.

Having said all of this, Honor have a great device on their hands, the camera is capable of taking some really astonishing pictures, in the right hands this camera can do wonders. For the price they are asking I would say it almost unrivaled in the camera department.

What Mobile

Great design, brilliant camera

from What Mobile

If you’re after an affordable device that packs plenty of top-notch features, you can’t really go wrong with the Huawei Honor 6+. The camera is unique, the performance is fantastic and the battery life beats those of more expensive phones. It loses points for its sluggish camera and inability to handle certain apps. Don’t let that put you off. The Honor 6+ is well worth the money.

Meant to appeal to a younger demographic

from UnleashThePhones

The Honor 6 Plus is another great-performing smartphone in an already crowded high-end market. But if you do end up getting one, chances are you’ll be pretty darn happy with it.

You certainly can’t go wrong with it

from Fone Arena

Without a doubt, the Huawei Honor 6 Plus is a very nice phone. We loved the display and the performance is top notch. While the design isn’t the best we’ve seen around, it isn’t quite an eyesore either and the high quality materials used do redeem it to a certain degree. Add to that the intriguing though gimmicky dual camera setup and you’ve got a device that offers quite a bit which should make it a sure shot recommendation. So is the Huawei Honor 6 Plus our go to handset in the sub Rs. 30,000 category? Not quite.

A photographer's delight

from NDTV

We had a lot of fun using the Honor 6 Plus and peg it to be one of the better Android phones we've reviewed in the recent past. The exceptional performance of its dual rear cameras is an added advantage since not many Android phones in the same price range can achieve that.

Having said that, the price tag of Rs. 26,499 puts it in an interesting spot because the Samsung Galaxy S5 has gone through multiple price revisions and at around Rs. 27,000 it is a real bargain. Also, the Nokia Lumia 830 in the same price range will tempt camera lovers. 

We'd recommend the Honor 6 Plus to anyone who wants a phablet that can capture good photographs.
