Honor 6C Pro review

Just the other day, Huawei introduced another inexpensive smartphone called Honor 6C Pro. Interestingly, Honor 6 was shown about 4 years ago, and the Chinese company has relatively new 6A and 6X in its arsenal. And they differ quite a lot. And in general, it is difficult for a non-geek to understand all these names: C Pro, Lite, X, A, and so on.

The Honor 6C Pro gadget is unremarkable: a simple MTK6750 processor, 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal memory, ordinary cameras, an ordinary battery and an extremely familiar appearance. However, the price of 11,000 rubles makes you think about buying this device, because the competitors, in fact, are only Meizu and the best Xiaomi.

Design, dimensions, controls

A strange trend has gone: if the device is budget or approaches it, then the appearance will definitely copy other devices in these price categories. I'm sure it's not, but it looks like a collusion of vendors: let's make "simple" phones the same in terms of appearance, so that people choose based only on the parameters. Well, you will agree: a metal back cover and two plastic inserts, a protruding camera, a scanner at the back - a description of almost any inexpensive phone. I believe that such devices should play on a bright and unusual design: red, blue, green colors, engraving, drawings, and so on. And not just no-name blanks, on which you only know that you stamp the names of manufacturers.

Maybe I'm wrong? Here is what Huawei writes:

“Attractive design is the result of painstaking work, consisting of 13 stages. 8 layers of coating and the finest laser engraving provide a smooth and pleasant to the touch texture of the case. The mirrored side edges and the matte surfaces of the front and back create an amazing contrast. The coating on the side faces of the case is applied using a special technology of vacuum deposition with a reflective effect.

I think we're done with the design of Honor 6C Pro :)

The smartphone is sold in three colors, and they are also "unique": black, dark blue and gold.

The assembly is excellent, there is an oleophobic coating on the glass, its quality is good: the finger glides easily, and the prints are erased quickly. During testing, no problems with scratches, chips were noticed.

The device has not the largest dimensions (our commentators are special, it's not worth writing "compact" - they eat them) - 147.9 x 73.2 x 7.65 mm. Thin, fits well in the hand, does not slip, assembled soundly. Actually, what else do you need from an inexpensive smartphone?

On the front panel - an indicator of missed events (on the right), standard sensors, a conversational speaker. It is loud, you can hear the interlocutor well, the tone is pleasant, without echo and other extraneous noise.

At the bottom end there is a microphone stylized as a speaker grille, microUSB and a speakerphone. On the right is the on / off button, the volume key (the move is small, the pressure is light), and on the left is the combined SIM + SIM (nano) or SIM + microSD slot. Headphone jack and second microphone on top.

On the reverse side is a flash, a camera lens protruding a couple of millimeters, a round fingerprint scanner. The latter functions adequately, but not too fast.

Display

This product uses a 5.2-inch screen. The physical size is 64x114 mm, the frame on top is 15 mm, on the bottom is 16 mm, on the right and left are about 3.5 mm each. There is an anti-reflective coating, effective.

The display resolution of Honor 6C Pro is HD, that is, 720x1280 pixels, the aspect ratio is 16:9, and the density is 283 pixels per inch. IPS matrix without air gap.

Maximum brightness of white color is 390 cd/m2, maximum brightness of black color is 0.53 cd/m2, contrast ratio is 735:1.

The matrix is ​​not bad, the viewing angles are maximum, but at certain angles the picture turns yellow or slightly turns into purple hues with inversion.

The device has an eye protection mode that reduces the level of UV radiation from the screen, which prevents eye fatigue during prolonged use of the smartphone.

Battery

There is a 3000 mAh non-removable battery inside the device. Such a capacity is the standard for almost all Android smartphones in any price category: more is welcome, less is considered doomed to exile, unless an AMOLED screen matrix was used. Yes, and sometimes gadgets do not live long with it.

The Honor 6C Pro smartphone shows typical results of a device with an HD screen and a simple chipset: 7 - 7.5 hours of video playback at maximum brightness, about 3.5 hours of toys. It operates from 9 am to 6 pm with medium load and until 11 pm with light load. Theoretically, it can "survive" until the next day, but only with a Wi-Fi connection.

Communications

The device works not only in 2G networks (850/900/1800/1900 MHz)/3G (HSPA+ up to 42 Mbps), but also in 4G CAT 6 band 1/3/5/7/8/20. There is no NFC chip here, the rest is standard for any Android smartphone: GPS and GLONASS (medium sensitivity), Wi-Fi b / g / n (2.4 GHz), Bluetooth 4.1, USB 2.0 with OTG support.

Memory

The 6C Pro smartphone is equipped with a good amount of RAM - 3 GB (the speed, oddly enough, is 4,000 MB / s, which is good for an inexpensive solution). As a rule, such gadgets still use only 2 GB of “RAM”, which is criminally small. Huawei also did not spare the built-in memory, so you will find here 32 GB in total and 24 GB of available space. The data read speed is 125 MB/s, and the write speed is 121 MB/s. The values ​​are normal, I've seen worse.

Cameras

Since the Honor 6C Pro is an inexpensive device, you should not expect something original from the camera. It uses a 13 MP sensor, lens aperture - f / 2.2, focal length - 27 mm. There is a single section flash. The front camera is 8 MP, the lens aperture is f / 2.4, and the focal length is the same - 27 mm.

For its price, the quality of the photos will come down, although, of course, the low detail, “soapy” under insufficient lighting conditions, and slow focus are a little depressing. The white balance works out correctly, the focus is accurate, the dynamic range is average. Night shots are simple, but there is almost no noise.

I liked the front camera, it shoots as it should in almost all conditions.

The video of the 6C Pro is obtained in FullHD resolution at 30 fps during the day and 16 fps at night. The quality is average, the exposure "jumps", the sound is stereo. The selfie camera also shoots FullHD and with the same parameters.

Despite the fact that the device does not pretend to be a camera phone, the interface provides manual mode: ISO (100 - 1600), shutter speed (1/4000 - 0.6 sec.), exposure, focus and white balance. There is also an HDR mode.

Performance

Huawei has decided to ditch its own HiSilicon solution in favor of a MediaTek chip. The 6C Pro has the MT6750 - the most popular last year: 28 nm, 4 cores, Mali-T860 graphics.

For some unknown reason, Antutu Benchmark refused to install on this model. However, the experience of testing a huge number of such gadgets allows me to conclude that Huawei would score about 40,000 points.

In general, the phone works slowly, strainingly, it seems that the processor is barely coping with its tasks. The interface is thoughtful. Almost all games run fine. Only 3D shooters at maximum graphics cause difficulties.

When under load, the case heats up a little, but within reason.

Multimedia

The 6C Pro uses one speaker for speakerphone output. It sounds (sorry for the tautology) quietly, the quality is good. The sound is normal in headphones.

Sometimes people ask me in the comments, why do you talk so little about sound? I answer: when there is something to talk about, I will definitely do it. Frankly, almost all smartphones sound the same. Even some "tap" devices are of mediocre quality. However, it is difficult to evaluate such things due to individual characteristics: for some, a teXet button for 500 rubles is the ideal sound quality.

Conclusion

What is Honor 6C Pro from Huawei? Balanced inexpensive device without special chips. That is, in a smartphone, it is impossible to single out extreme points, both positive and negative.

Among the competitors, it is worth noting the Meizu M5s or Meizu M6. They have plus or minus the same parameters. A great option is Xiaomi 4X with a 4100 mAh battery. You can give examples of other gadgets: ZTE Blade A6, Lenovo Vibe S1, BQ Space, ASUS Zenfone 3 Max and so on.

The purchase of the Honor 6C Pro, I think, will be prompted by the presence of the device on the shelf at a major retailer. That is, the gadget should lie in a conspicuous place among smartphones with a higher price tag. Otherwise, the seller may offer you some Senseit, Jinga or Keneksi.

Interestingly, Honor 6 was shown about 4 years ago, and the Chinese company has relatively new 6A and 6X in its arsenal. And they differ quite a lot. And in general, it is difficult for a non-geek to understand all these names: C Pro, Lite, X, A and so on.

The Honor 6C Pro gadget is unremarkable: a simple MTK6750 processor, 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal memory, ordinary cameras, an ordinary battery and an extremely familiar appearance. However, the price of 11,000 rubles makes you think about buying this device, because the competitors, in fact, are only Meizu and the best Xiaomi.

Design, dimensions, controls

A strange trend has gone: if the device is budget or approaches it, then the appearance will definitely copy other devices in these price categories. I'm sure it's not, but it looks like a collusion of vendors: let's make "simple" phones the same in terms of appearance, so that people choose based only on the parameters. Well, you will agree: a metal back cover and two plastic inserts, a protruding camera, a scanner at the back - a description of almost any inexpensive phone. I believe that such devices should play on a bright and unusual design: red, blue, green colors, engraving, drawings, and so on. And not just no-name blanks, on which you only know that you stamp the names of manufacturers.

Maybe I'm wrong? Here is what Huawei writes:

“Attractive design is the result of painstaking work, consisting of 13 stages. 8 layers of coating and the finest laser engraving provide a smooth and pleasant to the touch texture of the case. The mirrored side edges and the matte surfaces of the front and back create an amazing contrast. The coating on the side faces of the case is applied using a special technology of vacuum deposition with a reflective effect.

I think we're done with the design of Honor 6C Pro :)

The smartphone is sold in three colors, and they are also "unique": black, dark blue and gold.

The assembly is excellent, there is an oleophobic coating on the glass, its quality is good: the finger glides easily, and the prints are erased quickly. During testing, no problems with scratches, chips were noticed.

The device has not the largest dimensions (our commentators are special, it's not worth writing "compact" - they eat them) - 147.9 x 73.2 x 7.65 mm. Thin, fits well in the hand, does not slip, assembled soundly. Actually, what else do you need from an inexpensive smartphone?

On the front panel - an indicator of missed events (on the right), standard sensors, a conversational speaker. It is loud, you can hear the interlocutor well, the tone is pleasant, without echo and other extraneous noise.

At the bottom end there is a microphone stylized as a speaker grille, microUSB and a speakerphone. On the right is the on / off button, the volume key (the move is small, the pressure is light), and on the left is the combined SIM + SIM (nano) or SIM + microSD slot. Headphone jack and second microphone on top.

On the reverse side is a flash, a camera lens protruding a couple of millimeters, a round fingerprint scanner. The latter functions adequately, but not too fast.

Display

This product uses a 5.2-inch screen. The physical size is 64x114 mm, the frame on top is 15 mm, on the bottom is 16 mm, on the right and left are about 3.5 mm each. There is an anti-reflective coating, effective.

The display resolution of Honor 6C Pro is HD, that is, 720x1280 pixels, the aspect ratio is 16:9, and the density is 283 pixels per inch. IPS matrix without air gap.

Maximum brightness of white color is 390 cd/m2, maximum brightness of black color is 0.53 cd/m2, contrast ratio is 735:1.

The matrix is ​​not bad, the viewing angles are maximum, but at certain angles the picture turns yellow or slightly turns into purple hues with inversion.

The device has an eye protection mode that reduces the level of UV radiation from the screen, which prevents eye fatigue during prolonged use of the smartphone.

Battery

There is a 3000 mAh non-removable battery inside the device. Such a capacity is the standard for almost all Android smartphones in any price category: more is welcome, less is considered doomed to exile, unless an AMOLED screen matrix was used. Yes, and sometimes gadgets do not live long with it.

The Honor 6C Pro smartphone shows typical results of a device with an HD screen and a simple chipset: 7 - 7.5 hours of video playback at maximum brightness, about 3.5 hours of toys. It operates from 9 am to 6 pm with medium load and until 11 pm with light load. Theoretically, it can "survive" until the next day, but only with a Wi-Fi connection.

Communications

The device works not only in 2G networks (850/900/1800/1900 MHz)/3G (HSPA+ up to 42 Mbps), but also in 4G CAT 6 band 1/3/5/7/8/20. There is no NFC chip here, the rest is standard for any Android smartphone: GPS and GLONASS (medium sensitivity), Wi-Fi b / g / n (2.4 GHz), Bluetooth 4.1, USB 2.0 with OTG support.

Memory

The 6C Pro smartphone is equipped with a good amount of RAM - 3 GB (the speed, oddly enough, is 4,000 MB / s, which is good for an inexpensive solution). As a rule, such gadgets still use only 2 GB of “RAM”, which is criminally small. Huawei also did not spare the built-in memory, so you will find here 32 GB in total and 24 GB of available space. The data read speed is 125 MB/s, and the write speed is 121 MB/s. The values ​​are normal, I've seen worse.

Cameras

Since the Honor 6C Pro is an inexpensive device, you should not expect something original from the camera. It uses a 13 MP sensor, the lens aperture is f / 2.2, the focal length is 27 mm. There is a single section flash. The front camera is 8 MP, the lens aperture is f/2.4, and the focal length is the same – 27 mm.

For its price, the quality of the photos will come down, although, of course, the low detail, “soapy” under insufficient lighting conditions, and slow focus are a little depressing. The white balance works out correctly, the focus is accurate, the dynamic range is average. Night shots are simple, but there is almost no noise.

I liked the front camera, it shoots as it should in almost all conditions.

The video of the 6C Pro is obtained in FullHD resolution at 30 fps during the day and 16 fps at night. The quality is average, the exposure jumps, the sound is stereo. The selfie camera also shoots FullHD and with the same parameters.

Despite the fact that the device does not pretend to be a camera phone, the interface provides manual mode: ISO (100 - 1600), shutter speed (1/4000 - 0.6 sec.), exposure, focus and white balance. There is also an HDR mode.

Performance

Huawei has decided to ditch its own HiSilicon solution in favor of a MediaTek chip. The 6C Pro has the MT6750 - the most popular last year: 28 nm, 4 cores, Mali-T860 graphics.

For some unknown reason, Antutu Benchmark refused to install on this model. However, the experience of testing a huge number of such gadgets allows me to conclude that Huawei would score about 40,000 points.

In general, the phone works slowly, strainingly, it seems that the processor is barely coping with its tasks. The interface is thoughtful. Almost all games run fine. Only 3D shooters at maximum graphics cause difficulties.

When under load, the case heats up a little, but within reason.

Software platform

As a system - Google Android version 7.0 with a proprietary interface EMUI 5.1. In my opinion, Android 8 is not worth waiting for.

Multimedia

The 6C Pro uses one speaker for speakerphone output. It sounds (sorry for the tautology) quietly, the quality is good. The sound is normal in headphones.

Sometimes people ask me in the comments, why do you talk so little about sound? I answer: when there is something to talk about, I will definitely do it. Frankly, almost all smartphones sound the same. Even some "tap" devices are of mediocre quality. However, it is difficult to evaluate such things due to individual characteristics: for some, a teXet button for 500 rubles is the ideal sound quality.

Radio lovers will find it here.

Conclusion

What is Honor 6C Pro from Huawei? Balanced inexpensive device without special chips. That is, in a smartphone, it is impossible to single out extreme points, both positive and negative.

Among the competitors, it is worth noting the Meizu M5s or Meizu M6. They have plus or minus the same parameters. A great option is Xiaomi 4X with a 4100 mAh battery. You can give examples of other gadgets: ZTE Blade A6, Lenovo Vibe S1, BQ Space, ASUS Zenfone 3 Max and so on.

The purchase of the Honor 6C Pro, I think, will be prompted by the presence of the device on the shelf at a major retailer. That is, the gadget should lie in a conspicuous place among smartphones with a higher price tag. Otherwise, the seller may offer you some Senseit, Jinga or Keneksi.
