Honor 6C - Design and construction

L'Honor 6C shows a design already seen, but very stylish. The constructive quality è top to that of traditional entry-level and can already be seen from the meticulous attention to detail.

Indeed, the smartphone is made entirely of aluminum, who does not hold too many fingers and manages to provide a good grip in one-handed use.

Honor 6C

The device has the dimensions of 143.5 x 69.9 x 7.6 Millimeters for a weight of 138 grams. As you can guess, therefore, we are talking about a smartphone very compact e very manageable.

Honor 6C

Above unibody body in metal there is the rear camera accompanied by the single LED flash, the fingerprint sensor and the company logo. On the right side we find the volume rocker and the power button, unlike the left one where the SIM slot is located.

Below, the Micro USB input, the system speaker and the main microphone are housed, while in the upper part we can see the mini Jack input and the microphone used to reduce ambient noise.

On the front profile we find the RGB notification LED, the brightness and proximity sensors, the headset capsule and the selfie camera. Below, instead, there is the classic company logo.

Honor 6C - Display

Il of the new one entered the house Honor it is a unit of matrix IPS da 5 inches diagonal with resolution HD, PPI 294 e curved glass of type 2.5D.

Honor 6C

Despite being only HD, we are faced with one quality panel. THE colors they are faithfully represented and the oleophobic treatment it's good. Moreover, through the appropriate menu inside the settings we have the possibility to calibrate the color temperature at will.

The only one defect it concerns the reactivity of touch screen that under normal conditions behaves quite well, but that during the writing of messages skips some character.

Honor 6C - Hardware and performance

L'Honor 6C mount a chipset Qualcomm Snapdragon 435 including a processor octa-core with a maximum clock frequency of 1.4 GHz, a GPU Adreno 505, 3 GB di RAM e 32 GB di internal memory.

A configuration certainly low-end that, given the price, could turn up their noses to lovers of technical data sheets. Despite this, the device it runs well, is fluid and I rarely found any lag. Obviously it is not the fastest in the opening of the app, but all in all within the entry-level is definitely the best.

Separate speech for the videogame compartment, Because the GPU it behaves well with lighter titles like Subway Surfers, but struggles slightly more with heavier apps like Asphalt 8 e Real Racing 3.

Later we leave you all the results obtained in ours benchmark test.

Honor 6C - Photographic quality

Il 6C It is equipped with a rear camera with CMOS sensor da 13 mega-pixels with opening f / 2.2 e single flash LED.

Honor 6C

In favorable light conditions the photos buone, even if you can notice a drop in detail. The sensor is particularly susceptible and tends to overexpose with too much light (or excessively overemphasizes light sources). Furthermore, the mode HDR it does not seem to have much influence on the final result.

At night the quality drops and the noise becomes more evident. In any case, the "Professional" mode can help us to improve our shots.

Finally, the video can be registered up to a maximum resolution Full HD, but they can not reach full sufficiency.

Frontally we find a sensor from 5 mega-pixels with opening f / 2.2. In this case i Selfie they are sufficient during the day and below sufficiency in low light situations. In fact, it is possible to notice the background noise in both cases.

The application interface Camera it is the same as present on others Honor e Huawei in which we find also the most used shooting modes like "Professional", "Yummi", "Panorama", "Beauty" and so on.

Honor 6C - Audio

L'audio reproduced by the lower speaker is good, as well as the volume, moreover, the sound è clean, even if the bass and treble are not very pronounced.

During 'listening in headphones the situation improves, with a range of frequencies more balanced and a better quality.

Also good audio in capsule headset and speakerphone, in fact we have not encountered any particular problems with our interlocutor.

Honor 6C - Connectivity

One of the strengths of this brand is certainly the connectivity, in fact theHonor 6C supports connectivity LTE Cat.6 and Dual SIM dual standby.

As usual, reception is excellent and we have not encountered any kind of problem in navigation. Furthermore, the switch between Wi-Fi e data network è molto veloce.

For the rest we find the Wi-Fi 802.11 b / g / n single band, Bluetooth 4.1 and GPS / A-GPS / GLONASS. The satellite navigation it is reliable, characterized by excellent precision thanks to the integrated compass and a reactive signal fix.

Il fingerprint reader located on the back cover is fast e accurate. In addition, many features within the software are associated with it. For example, we can take photographs, answer calls, browse photos and so on. We can say that 10 times on 10 we can unlock the smartphone smoothly.

Honor 6C - Software

Despite being announced by poco, the software ofHonor 6C is based on Android 6.0 Marshmallow and customized with the classic proprietary interface EMUI 4.1.

We are not talking about the latest version available, but we are confident of a future update. Despite this, theEMUI we know it already well, in fact, they are present many customizations e many features that will allow us to remain satisfied anyway.

We could add gods themes, manage the consumption of the battery thanks to a energy plan, use the fingerprint sensor to perform various functions and much more.

Honor 6C - Autonomy

Speaking of battery, this device is equipped with a unit from 3020 mAh, which, thanks to a only in HD and a processor poco energy-intensive, it manages to guarantee one good autonomy.

Indeed, with a standard use of the device you can perform one day and a half of autonomy with approx 4 hours and 30 minutes di active screen. Using more intensely the device, however, we manage to arrive in the evening with a good one 20% di residual battery.

Furthermore, thanks to the special panel located in the settings, we can manage the opening of the apps at the time of switching on or display and close the apps with abnormal consumption. All this can help us to further increase the autonomy of our smartphone.

Unfortunately the recharge è very slowin fact, the power supply uses approx 2 hours and minutes 45 to fully charge the device.

Honor 6C - Conclusions

L'Honor 6C is definitely a entry-level di quality, thanks to a elegant design and an above average construction. The Snapdragon 435 it runs the device well and guarantees good autonomy, but given the price, perhaps we would have expected a higher level solution.

La little reactivity of the display it made me turn up my nose because sometimes the writing of the messages was slow e cumbersome.

Summing up, probably this smartphone is thought mostly for the offline market and in fact i 3 GB di RAM with 32 GB di internal memory they certainly raise it within its price range, but perhaps it would have been more palatable at the price of 189 / 199 euro.

L'Honor 6C It is available on the official store vMall at the price of 229 €.
