TY flipkart and WSretailer for your speedy delivery.
coming to mobile....
*13.x gb of 16gb available---Honor holly>>8gb redmi 1s only 4gb available user memory>>4gb moto e---only 2.x gb available
*Display clarity----->redmi 1s(marginal higher ppi)>Honor holly( 720p)>moto e(Fwvga)
*Processor-----Honor holly=redmi 1s(both quad core) > moto e(dual core)
*RAM-----same to all 1gb devices
*Camera---all cameras are worst in this segment but worth mentioning moto e sucks pretty badly due to non availability of flash and front camera.Both holly and redmi 1s is good.
*OS------Honor Holly(kitkat) not yet conformed update to android L but runs the latest kitkat OS wich is most used rite now ==Moto e(kitkat 4.4) has sure update to android L >>>redmi 1s(still jelly bean and no signs of update yet)
*Battery---------- moto e== redmi 1s== Honor holly(good battery backup with medium usage of 30hrs of whatsapp,music and internet)....gaming suck battery pretty fast in all phone. very good standby time.
For good battery backup,(applies to every phone),
*Turn of automatic brightness and set manually the slider to low or required intensity of brightness required.Since auto brightness sensor checks continuously of increase in brightness and in some cases produces high level of brightness when not required.
*close app by long pressing the butting right to the home button.
*Turn of location in settings.
*Turn off Google photo sync and Google auto backup feature since it will drain every time you take a photo by adding location to you photo and uploading it to Google drive.
*Turn off scanning of WiFi networks which is the most battery drainer in every phone.
*Use 3G connectivity when needed.Go to settings and change 2G only option if not using 3G. Because 3G connectivity in every phone has lower standby and talk time compared to 2G talk time.
*Always install trusted apps from play store.
*Install cleaning app available in play store for clearing cache and freeing ram.
*16gb internal memory and expandable memory slot is available.After having 13.x GB free space ppl can move Apps and games To SD card. Moto e will not be enough of storage even after moving apps to SD card due to low availability of internal memory.In android not entire app will be moved to SD card some part of file will stay in internal memory itself.Same goes to Redmi 1S
*Dual sim with one 3g connectivity sim.The connectivity is superb since Huawei is pioneer in data cards and networking devices.
*No wifi issues perfect connecting with wifi also not heating issue as in redmi 1s.
*Latest version of android Kitkat 4.4.2.
*Plays 1080p videos smoothly,music app is good by default.installed MX player for videos.
*No low sound issue.good quality loud speaker and can easily hear the phone ring in pocket.so ppl stop complaining about low sound.Its audible for ppl working in company or in a cubical... vibrate options is also available in settings menu.
*To close apps must long press the button to right of the home button.Took me a while to notice and find how to close apps :-)
*By default File manager is available and torch app is available built in
*Notification Led is available for charging,low battery warning and message notifications.
*Long pressing the home button opens Google launcher and you can directly speak OK GOOGLE
*super fast emotion UI.better than MIUI in redmis 1s because nearly 650mb of RAM is available free really shocked to see and even after installing apps nearly 570mb of RAMis available free....where as Redmi 1s has only 200-110MB of RAM space available.
*Front cam is Too good.Back 8mp camera is very good in outdoor shooting with 4.3 mode for 8mp shots and 16.9 ratio for 6mp,5mp,4mp,etc shots,Flash is also very very good and low light performance is very due to Samsung BSI sensor,Also Has HRD,living images,burst mode,panorama,etc features in the camera app
*Can add multiple widgets and also download from play store.by default weather widget is available.
*can add up to 9 home screens which is really good.
*no headset given.
But at price of 6999 its no big deal.
Ty Huawei,Expecting Lollipop update for the phone ASAP and TY again, :))
