a brand making great world class phones yet not VERY popular

aks23 has owned it for less than 3 months before publishing this review

This phone is an affordable yet well built phone
Doesn't seem so from outside the box or in advertisements. It can only be understood when used
I was forced to have this phone because my xperia z2 broke down and couldn't afford a new flagship phone .seeing this my dad bought me this ,he does not know gadgets well.As I started using it,I felt that its better than a xperia z2 or galaxy s5 .whiln e using u will see that its quite smooth in transitions and app launching .it runs very fast on such low hardware is uses hardly 30% of ram on aaverage ... 16gb is good enough .it is said to be expandable up to 32gb but surprisingly my 128gb SD card works on it.its body is comparatively heavy but lighter than an iPhone 4s ,but heavy is actually a sign of a long lasting device.its outer body is firmly built to perfection(physically) its looks a very bold and doesn't look cheap its trim looks like leather and thus looks versatile .the buttons on the bottom don't glow but reflect on light .

The camera is pretty good . focusing is better than ever ,great detail ,excellent for a 8mp camera ,front camera is great too with all the functions you will ever need on both cameras .display is clear and vivid .the UI makes it even better .I personally like white(rare) menus, status bar and internal menus rather than black( old and common) ones
I prefer using a launcher for the desktop ,emotion UI is a UI that we are not used to besides that its fine.
Speakers are loud and clear ..nothing to add its...

Camera

As good as others with 13mp or more ....on my opinion better than lg G3 galaxy S5 or Note 4.
UI speed
10.0
It is as fast as hell ...its working so well even on such low hardware. averagely use 25% of ram 69% is highest ever .damn fast ...desktop functionality and looks are the only thing that could be improved .yet using launchers won't affect performance ...I do and ram usage is hardly 30%

Surprise in a Box

nitinSPEAKs has owned it for less than month before publishing this review

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...
