Huawei Honor 2: 4.5" HD screen, quad-core CPU and ICS for $300

Huawei Honor 2: 4.5
The original Huawei Honor, which came out at the end of last year, didn't make much of a splash, but that obviously can't stop the Chinese giant from going for it once again. Huawei has just announced the Honor 2, which actually shapes up as a pretty capable smartphone for the price asked by the manufacturer.

Now, Huawei is yet to announce when/if the Honor 2 will be coming to international markets, so it should be regarded as a handset for the Chinese market (comes out in early November), at least for now. But we can't hide the fact that we're excited about it because of its announced price of 1,888 yuan, which equals about $300. This is actually a spectacular price for what the Honor 2 offers, and that includes a large 4.5" LCD IPS screen with HD resolution, 1 GB or 2 GB of RAM, Huawei's own K3V2 quad-core 1.4 GHz processor, 8 GB of storage, 8MP camera and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. Sound like a pretty good package, eh? And even if the pre-loaded software UI doesn't really appeal to you, you can always install whatever launcher you want and be done with it.

So, the only thing left to see is if and when Huawei will decide to bring the Honor 2 to the global market. Of course, we don't believe that the phone's off-contract price will be $300 globally, but there's some pretty good reason to believe that it'll be more affordable than most of the competition in this specification class.

How likely are you to purchase an affordable but powerful smartphone, if you know that it's made by Huawei?

There's no proof implicating of espionage, much like the farce that was Iraq and WMDs.

$300 ain't that bad!! But the price can't determine the performance of the device so i'll for the burn tests!

so it's better than the one x. Might be worth the price then..

faster chipset doesn't necessarily mean better. but the low price is enough to make it commendable.

It says nothing about whether there is an sd slot or not and it doesn't mention the battery either. I guess they could improve more on the information leaked...

If I was going to get a Huawei device I'd rather go with the d quad xl. Whatever phone I get next will have very impressive battery life.

I've never dared to use any Chinese phones and don't care they are made by Huaway or ZET.
