Honor 10 sales surpass 3 million units, brand reveals growth of 150%
Since launching back in May, the Honor 10 flagship has proven to be extremely popular among consumers in Europe and Asia. So popular in fact that in under two months the Huawei-owned company has shipped over 3 million units of the device, something that has helped the company grow at explosive levels.

Overall, the low-cost brand has seen its international sales volumes, which includes shipments in all markets except China, grow by a whopping 150% year-on-year during the first six months of 2018, with Europe proving to be one of Honor’s strongest markets. Over in the UK, for example, the company’s sales volumes increased by 200%, while in Spain shipments grew 5-fold. Also, shortly after the launch of the Honor 10, the Huawei sub-brand overtook Apple to become the 2nd largest vendor in Russia. In addition to all of these figures, it’s worth pointing out that Honor was the fastest growing brand in India too during the first half of the year, boosting its sales by 300%, while over in its home market of China, it further solidified its position as the biggest e-brand and only one to place in the top five.

Moving forward, Honor has the goal of becoming a top three mobile brand within the next five years. If successful, it will undoubtedly solidify parent company Huawei’s position in the smartphone market and should play a big role in eventually overtaking Samsung as the number 1 manufacturer.

I wonder what recipe is Huawei/Honor employing to sell it's phones in such numbers. Example - Asus Zenfone 5z, better camera, better SOC, better display, better sound, better software, better battery life and is priced lesser in many countries. Yet garners much less interest than Honor ones. And those who can't believe it, go to YouTube and see comparison tests and videos. Infact Huawei/Honor cheapen out on their devices. Don't believe me? Check out JerryRigEverything's P20 Pro durability test. It's display glass cracked for no reason at all. First phone to suffer such failure in JRE's tests ! There is no mention by Huawei which glass they are exactly using in P20 pro. Similarly in Honor 10, there is no mention what version of Gorilla Glass is being used. What if they are cheaping out and using GG 1 or GG 2 ? Everybody knows how Huawei/Honor used to sell their flagship phones with eMMC 5 memory and ddr3 RAM just one year back. Reviewers were sent UFS storage and DDR4 RAM versions while consumers were sold cheap versions. They were even caught, articles were posted. I can't help but wonder how people are being taken for a ride by a cheap chinese brand like Huawei. Even Xiaomi, Oppo, Vivo, OnePlus are better.

I own a Honor 6 which is 45months old and the only problem after a long usage is battery efficiency is low now and is my secondary phone. Honor phone last really long. My two cousins are using their honor phones for almost 3 years now. Two major OS upgrades to even 'X' and 'C' series phone. Why wont people buy Honor phones? People don't use their phone the way JRE handles them. My honor 6's glass only has one scratch where it fell down on a screw. They must be using a good glass.

The P20 Pro was NOT the first phone to fail Jerry Rig Everything torture test and I watch his channel all the time. I've used many Huawei and Honor phones and have never had a single issue with durability. Their all metal handsets were tough. As for which glass they use Aluminosilicate glass is what they use if it isn't Gorilla Glass which Huawei informed me in an email about. Weather it's Gorilla Glass or whatever other hardened tough glass, all glass can break or scratch. Samsungs latest flagships suffer micro scratches easily using GG5 so your comments mean nothing. There isn't anything 'cheap' about Huawei or Honor handsets unless they are budget. Even then they are pretty decent quality. The glass on P20 Pro was weakened by scratches and cracked it can happen

Silly costumers.. Honor 10 and P20 have use kirin 970 from last year, it is like buying SD835 this year. Actually this cpu is weaker than 835, gpu even worse.. So for near $500 you can buy phone powered buy 835 like S8+, XZ Premium and U11.. Cheaper options like OP5t , Mi 6 or Mix 2 .. I would never buy OnePlus or Xiaomi, but getting Honor flagship over these two is ridiculous. Honor 10 is not better than OP5 or Mi6.. Even worse compared to op6 or mi8

"Honor 10 and P20 have use kirin 970 from last year, it is like buying SD835 this year. Actually this cpu is weaker than 835, gpu even worse.. " When the Honor 10 was released the kirin 970 was around 6 months old and around 9 months for the P20. When the Note 9 releases the SD 845 will be 9 months old, same for the XZ3. Should they not release them because the SoC will be the same age as the 970 was on P20 release. Then in the same breath you tell people they should buy SD 835 phones which are far older than the 970. Double standards fit you just right.

You don't know anything About Honor. The Honor 10 is less than 400€ and the GPU will be better than the one in S835 Thanks to GPU Turbo. The CPU is already better.

They've taken market share from Samsung, which is awesome. Sucks they are a skinned OEM. But it's alright, the Android OEM's just keep tripping over each other and taking market share from one another. It's only a matter of time before Nokia starts eating some of the high market share pie.

Every company takes market shares from everyone at some point. It will always go back and forth. So maybe just get over it and enjoy what ever phone you have.

God people these days stress and argue over things like this too much. It's just a flipping phone who cares. Just enjoy what you have and get a life. It's not important
