The Honor 6 is a rare thing, successfully combining an excellent display with good looks, top performance and a relatively low price. It’s the perfect smartphone for budget-restricted gamers who don’t want a phablet.
 
It looks a bit like the Amazon Fire Phone. It’s simple and pretty, though the plastic back scratches up easily – fortunately a protector comes included in the box. The Honor’s 5-inch Full HD screen is vivid, bright and nice to look at from any angle, which we’d be happy with seeing on a smartphone twice the price.  
 
Gaming credentials are simply outstanding for the price. There’s 3GB of RAM on board, which is incredible for a phone this cheap. This, combined with the octa-core Kirin 920 CPU, delivers outstanding performance, wiping the floor with Snapdragon 801 devices. The 3,100mAh battery lasts for well over a day too, so you’ll be able to get away with forgetting to charge it some nights.
