Huawei Honor 6 Plus (with its dual camera setup) is now available internationally for $399
Huawei earlier this month announced the Honor 6 Plus, one of the company’s most advanced smartphones to date. Initially released in China, the Honor 6 Plus is now also available to customers from almost all over the world.

Retailer Oppo Mart is selling the 16 GB version of Huawei’s Honor 6 Plus for $399 (unlocked), though it’s currently offering only the white model.

One of the highlights of the Honor 6 Plus is its dual camera system that’s found on the back, consisting of two 8 MP sensors: one with f/2.0 aperture and autofocus, and another one with f/2.4 aperture and a fixed focus. Huawei calls this “symmetrical dual camera technology”, mentioning ultra-fast focus times, and variable aperture among its benefits. You can find out more about this dual camera here.

Sporting a 5.5-inch 1080p display, the Honor 6 Plus also features LTE connectivity, an octa-core 1.8 GHz HiSilicon Kirin 925 processor, 3 GB of RAM, microSD card support (up to 128 GB), and a 3600 mAh battery. At the moment, the handset runs Android 4.4 KitKat customized with Huawei’s EMUI 3.0 UI. 

What do you think, is Huawei's latest smartphone worth $400?

For the price of $400, I think it's great phone.
(But for $400, I was hopping the SD 615 with Quick Charge 2.0)

Battery technology hasn't been advancing much compares to other techs. Fast charge decreases battery life faster. Unless my phone has removable battery, I'd like to charge it normally.

qualcom Quick Charge is NOT a brute force high speed charging. It's a smart charging that charge with high speed when the battery is empty, and use less and less speed as the battery getting full.

The Kirin cpus are pretty good... The K925 eats the 615 for breakfast

I'd rather get this "underpriced phone" instead of the "overpriced phone" that bends.

You're welcome, Apple pony. :)

You might be right, but most often a cheap user is a smart shopper.

LOL. This just shows how you're bad with money. I have no idea how much you make a year, maybe a lot. But you're definitely not a smart shopper. You might as well be proud of whatever you are, even if it is being stupid.

The only let down for me is the processor. I really hope that most of flagship in 2015 will have Quick Charge 2.0 (or equivalent), and this kirin CPU certainly won't have it.

Dont know what your criteria for quick charge is , but its 5inch predecessor, the Honor 6 with 3100mAh charges 0 to 100% in 2 hours while upto 90% in 1 hour.

I'm talking about qualcom Quick Charge 2.0

If what you said it's true... 90% in 1 hour, that's impressive.

actually it gets 70% in 1 hour
but the battery life of honor 6 is great
i get 1 whole day with heavy usage

'heavy usage' is subjective. It's need controllable measurement such as the one done by PA.

and are you sure they use fast charging. because if that's true, they will brag about it.

The only thing I don't like about huawei phones is that they don't use Qualcomm's chips.

The Huawei Ascend Mate 2 4G uses a Snapdragon 400.

With the bands listed on Oppomart, I don't think it would even work with 3G here in USA!!

They better sell them quick before Apple hits them with an import ban. I see it coming now.

@Doakie. You read too much into the hype of Apple innovation in mobile communications. Huawei has been shipping the 2G/3G/4G base-stations for many years. It is currently the #1 provider of 4G network equipment. It has in possession many fundamental patents. In the era of 5G, Huawei may have the same, if not more, number of IPs as Qualcomm. Therefore, Huawei is no XiaoMi. If Apple raises lawsuit against Huawei, win hence stop-shipment, is far from certain.

what he is talking about is the look of the phone directly competing with apple they don't like competition so the get obama to ban them, like samsung's 3g patents that are in the older iphone 3,3g,3gs and 4 samsung said fine you can't sell and have to pay us for the patent for the 3g tech and they said no because it was a deal with the chip maker and argued its a frand patent

Ugh. I wouldn't buy it simply because I wouldn't want anyone to get the idea that I own an iPhone. I would like to keep my dignity intact.

Don't you realize that Apple is a follower to the ID design of smartphones with display size > 4"? Therefore, Apple likely studied and copied, to some extent, the "design IPs" of Samsung / HTC / Nokia / Lenovo / Coolpad / Huawei / ZTE / Vivo ...

Thanks

In China, there is no brain-distorted mobile operators like those in US (typically only US English, French, Spanish languages are allowed). Therefore, most, if not all, smartphones sold in China allow end-users to set whatever languages preferred.
