The Highs

 

The major high point for both Huawei and Honor was the uniquely-designed smartphones. In 2018, we saw different smartphone manufacturers opting for a more or less similar design, but Honor and Huawei stood out of the crowd with their design marvels. Secondly, the company introduced some really good models in the mid-range segment with Honor Play being targeted at the gaming community who does not want to spend a fortune on a gaming smartphone.



The Lows

 

Coming to the lows, Huawei was pretty much silent in terms of aggressively launching smartphones for the Indian market. On the hand, Honor was highly active, which resulted in way too many models at the similar price point. This created some confusion with the customers. Secondly, Huawei was not able to keep up with the likes of Nokia or OnePlus for rolling updates at a regular interval of time.
