Huawei Honor 6 available now in Europe, a whole lotta smartphone for £250

Huawei Honor 6 available now in Europe, a whole lotta smartphone for £250Remember the Huawei Honor 6? It launched in Beijing way back in June this year, but only now, four months later, is it making its way to Europe.

But we'll forgive the Chinese chap's tardiness, as the Huawei Honor 6 offers entirely decent specs at a reasonable half-the-price-of-some-flagships price point.

Diving straight into Huawei Honor 6 specs, we start with a 5in 1080p display, and a screen-to-body ratio of 75.7%, which Huawei proudly says is better than the Samsung Galaxy S5 and iPhone 5s.

The Honor 6 is powered by Huawei’s own Kirin processor, an octo-core job adopting ARM’s big.LITTLE technology, so the four most powerful – and battery-hungry - cores only come into play when necessary.

The Huawei Honor 6 spec sheet is rounded off with a generous 3GB of RAM, 16GB internal storage (augmentable via microSD, thankfully), a 13MP rear camera with Sony sensor and dual-LED flash, selfie-friendly 5MP shooter on the front, 4G LTE compatibility, 3,000mAh battery, and KitKat Android 4.4 with a slather of Huawei's Emotion UI.

The official Huawei site links to Amazon for UK consumers, where the Honor 6 will sell for £249.99 SIM free just as soon as it becomes available; currently we’re told it’s “Temporarily out of stock.”

Tempted to save a few quid and embrace the Chinese invasion, or are you sticking with tried-and-tested Apple/Samsung/LG/HTC/Sony/Motorola? Let us know below.

I don't see this thing having European LTE support. Unless there is going to be a different version of this phone for Europe this should be avoided.

LG G3 is $400 in US. Unfortunately, it has US only LTE support. A month before it's same price here for EU version?
