Chinese tech firm on a roll with Honor


What’s the worst thing that can happen to your smartphone?

For some, it would be a phone stolen while commuting. For others, dropping a phone from atop a building would be the worst possible thing.


But most will agree that running low on battery ranks as one of the worst things that can happen to their devices.

Thanks to technology, users may tap a myriad of applications for their smartphones.


It has become a highly indispensable device for most people. Some tend to place every detail of their lives on their devices and even share their lives on the ’Net. The only thing that can prevent them from doing so is when they run out of power.

To address this particular problem, Huawei has come up with a smartphone that allows consumers to share and connect for up to three days (with normal usage) on a single charge.

Enter Huawei Honor: A smartphone with a 4-inch screen range. It is powered by a 1,900 mAh battery and also features a 16M 16:9 true color high definition (HD) touchscreen. The device is also equipped with a 1.4 GHz processor and an 8-megapixel High Dynamic Range-enabled camera.

The Huawei Honor also has 0.3-megapixel front-facing camera which can be used for video chat or video calls. The touchscreen has a fast response to every tap and touch.

“Consumers now have a high-performing smartphone that lets them communicate, connect, entertain and share content for an extended period of time without compromising on looks, technology or style,” said Johnson Ma Xiaoqiang, country manager of Huawei.

The device looks sleek and chic in a 10.9-mm body and is extremely light at 140 grams.

Its system can be upgraded to Ice Cream Sandwich-Android OS with exclusive Cloud+ services, which is considered to be user-friendly.


The Huawei Honor already has a free 160GB cloud disk storage, Cloud+ Synchronization and backup of information and third-party applications.

With the Cloud+, it can also locate a lost phone and has the capacity to restore all apps, SMS, content, e-mail and photos in the event of damage or loss.

“Huawei is the first mobile phone manufacturer globally to launch a cloud-computing-based smartphone,” said Ma Xiaoqiang. “We are really excited to bring this storage-in-the-sky to Filipino consumers through Huawei Honor.”

The phone also has top-notch security feature such as the black list and white list.

Once a contact is added to the black list, the owner will no longer receive any phone calls or SMS from the blocked contact.

He or she will only receive a security notification alert once the blacklisted contact attempts to call or send an SMS to the device owner.

When the blocked contact tries to call the owner of the Huawei Honor, the contact will hear a single ring then a busy tone will follow. A security notification will be sent to the owner that a blacklisted caller has tried to contact him or her.

On the other hand, when a contact is added to the white list, or high priority list, each call or SMS sent by the contact will be logged twice in the call logs and Inbox.

The “Classic Black” Huawei Honor retails for P13,990.
