A surprise in a Cyan Box
I received the phone a day after Diwali. Kudos to Flipkart for making it possible as they had mentioned they would send it by Nov. 7th.
Now on to review : HONOR HOLLY (It comes from an iPhone 5 user for years)
I bought this phone for my dad who has never used a touch phone nor has he ever been introduced to the word internet. Under my impression Android has always been confusing but Kit Kat 4.4.2 supported with Huawei emotion interface makes it a cake walk for any beginner to understand a touch phone.
Design: By all means Huawei Honor Holly is 5 star for its design. By no angle does it look a phone worth 6999. Its sleek, very light weight, white glossy back makes the phone look classy. Holly is slimmest among all the phone available at the same price.
SCREEN: 5Inch screen, Amazing display, when it mentions 16 million colors, it means it. The phone just looks amazing. Touch is supreme matching to the most expensive phones in the world.
STORAGE: Its massive 16 GB internal memory, for anyone who is not a movie or song junkie you dont need more.
INTERNET: It was very easy to detect and connect to Wifi / The place where there is slow speed the phone does take time to load up things. But all looks great on high speed internet areas and wifi. Phone also supports Hotspot / GPS Navigation enabling. In all great experience.
BATTERY: It comes with a massive removable battery. The life looks great for a phone loaded with so many feature. Problem is in charging the phone. It charges very very slowly. So one might have to wait for ages for it to charge to hundred percent. (May thats a problem in my phone only)
CAMERA : Features I have never seen in any phone were there in here is the Camera section of this phone.
Face Detection and clearing : This feature detects your face and clears all wrinkles / blck spots etc. Automatically. You have many color and cropping postioning features.
Panorama Pictures can be taken Horizontally and Vertically as well. (UNIQUE from many high class camera phones)
Also has a wonderful live picture option.
Sharing of pics too can be done in all possible platforms directly after clicking the pic.
picture quality is good. However with flash i saw some white tones coming in. But tht is not a big demerit.
SOUND : Its a flaw huawei needs to work on. The phones audio is low. I would rate it 2.5 out of 5 for this demerit. For those who can live with low volume outputs and can use speakers / earphones this is one area you will have to live with.
- Great Design (Best in Class)
- Huge Internal Memory
- Good 8 MB camera - HD Recording - Cool auto Edit & Edit features.
- KITKAT & Huawei Emotion Interface gells well.
- Display and touch is great. 5" Screen
- 1 Ghz processor - 16 GB internaly Memory
- Good Battery Back Up
- Very Light weight.
- Sound Output weak.
- No Covers - Screen Guards available yet.
- Slow Charging. 0 to 100% in 3-4 Hours. Smtimes more.
In all its a wonderful phone. So if you can live with low sound and economical battery usage and charge it overnight. Its the best bet in town.
COMPARISONS I MADE BEFORE MY PURCHASE :
I Compared it with :
Moto e - Looks ugly / no flash / small screen comes with KitKat - 4 Gb internal memory. INR 700 cheaper that Huawei Honor Holly
Xiome RedMi : Was not available. Reviews are very very bad. Like Phone heats up a lot. The Screen is smaller / Its cheaper than Holly but does not have a massive 16 GB Internal Memory.
Karbonn Titanium s5 : Old Android version / Old phone launched long time ago. Hence being sold at lower price. Holly sounded more excting with features and fully loaded with latest features. Was a 1000 rs expensive than Holly.
Micromax Unite: Low memory. Price was almost same. Less internal memory.
SO GUYS YOU CAN TAKE THE PLUNGE AND WAIT FOR THIS AWESOMENESS
