It is also SRS WOW HD certified and therefore should offer better music experience and also features active noise cancellation to keep the ambient noise at bay. The phone comes with 1500 mAh battery.
Anand Narang, marketing director at Huawei Devices said, “What is the use of a smartphone, if you need to charge it once or twice a day? Absence of features and poor battery life are the top two reasons for Indian consumers to upgrade their smartphones. With a 3 day, single charge, Huawei Honor offers upto 9 hours of talktime, 10 hrs of video and 6 hours of gaming. With industry leading features and superior technology in sync with Huawei’s brand philosophy of “Why Wait”, Huawei Honor raises the bar of smartphone experience.”
Availability has been an issue with Huawei devices, with users complaining and ask us about its availability. But this time around company has made it available with stores like Reliance Digital, Croma, online channels Flipkart, Tradus, Letsbuy and in multi brand outlets across India.
