Huawei U8860 Honor review: Way of the Dragon - read the full textThe Huawei Honor is made in China and proudly so. Designed, engineered and created in the Land of the Dragon, it's nothing like your run-of-the-mill cheap knock-off. It's a genuine Chinese product, not just something put together for someone else...

I should say that it is pratically the same. Huawei has parts from most other euro-american-asian cooperators who make electronic parts like SoC, camera modul, card reader etc. So you are the type of guy who estimates the product by name but not for it's real value from good components and usability of device. This is their 2011. top spot device, you don't need dual core for Ice cream sandwich to be fluid and usable. I also know thet this year it is going to be quad core and 720p screen for all android high end devices from samsung,lg, sony, htc. So the type of screen isn't that important because most of these brands except samsung still put ips lcd or ah ips lcd displays. About RAM it is ok because most of todays top phones has 768 MB or 1 GB. Battery is supream for 1 core CPU and middle end device . For 8 MP modul you say "8 mp camera with 720p recording..huh.. samsung/LG/moto/htc have 1080p recording with same mp so surely it is a pseudo 8MP not real one." If you read specification of this device you must know that it uses Snapdragon S2 CPU or Qualcomm MSM8255T Snapdragon 1.4 GHz with GPU Adreno 205 which suports only 720p 30 fps. Now I shell give you two links to see the same module and performance of it in other brands: Motorola XT615-http://www.gsmarena.com/motoro...615-4348.­php

Huawei will have to walk a long way till they get stable ground in this business. Problem is that so far their phones have look that is high-class for Chinese market, but prices are not "chinese market friendly". Unfortunatelly for other companies they have more than enough resources to succeed.

Looks like the writer has soft corner for Huaewei. It is actually made in china not ASSEMBLED/MANUFACTURED IN CHINA.
What is so great that writer has so many praises. It is same old stuff that others are producing with better brand value.
8 mp camera with 720p recording..huh.. samsung/LG/moto/htc have 1080p recording with same mp so surely it is a pseudo 8MP not real one.
512mb RAM, cmon guys let's talk about 1GB and more. POWERFUL 1900 mah battery.lol..i would need to rethink about using word powerful in my statements henceforth.
854x480 res. Let's talk about 960x540 or RAZR.
LCD in the age of LED. Great technological advancement.

This review sounds rushed. No Audio tests e.t.c. Perhaps the stigma you talked about still holds true.
