I bought this Honor 6, H60 L12 32GB NFC, last month of January, straight purchased at Huawei´s official webstore.
The phone was working amazingly great till a couple of weeks ago, when it suffered sudden battery problems, which render its daily usage almost useless, since battery is not working reliably. I do not know whether it´s a software problem, or a hardware issue related to either the battery itself, or the battery micro-usb charging port.
This is the Problem description, in case any of you, peolpe, suffered a similar issue with this model battery or has any technichal suggestion:
- The phone will not switch off or stay off when charger is connected, and the unit will restart itself automatically, and as a result, rear part of the device is extremely hot.
- The phone battery will never charge fully. It gets stuck on either 10%, 30% or 40 % charge, and if you restart it after a while charging, battery indicator will rise up to 80% at most: never more.
- The battery sends a random warning requiring immediate charging within 30 seconds, or will switch off automatically;
- No damage due either to neglecting usage or accidental drop has happened, and no exposure to extreme temperatures has occurred. The phone is protected in an official suitable leather rigid case.
Since the defect first evidenced, I have had to do the following trouble shooting:
- try 2 other different chargers and check out original charger: all chargers work ok with other phones, but this unit will not recognise when charger is connected and charging.
- up date the EMUI operating system up to EMUI3.0 (latest version);
- revied and checked all phone system settings.
- boot and restablish to older backup saved version prior to defect appearance;
- boot and restablished factory settings;
I am thinking of changins the original battery by a new one, but I do not even know how to open the rear cover and get to the pone insides.
Can any of you, guys, tell me if you had similar problems with this model´s battery???
I want buy this phone but a bit worried if there is any heating, hanging or battery life problem. Users plz inform. Thanx.

zain, 21 Oct 2015 I am confused to buy honor 6, sony z2 or a5 please guide metake sony z2 because it have strong hardwear and up to android 6
Does any1 check, is Honor 6 using 64-bit techn on android 5.1.1?
I never use other branded fone, bought this during promotion. It really works charm, dunno why ppl keep complaining. Fully charged easily last for a day and charging jz take less than 2 hours to reach 90percent. Most graphic intense game runs smoothly compared to my nex7. 3gb ram really make me dont bother bout how many background apps. UI is very beautiful, esp the lockscreen changing wallpapers are brilliant. I dont like default launcher, so i installed nova and it works great. Otherwise the system UI is really nice. Camera quality is great, esp super night mode. I jz dont like beauty mode in front camera setting, it make pictures unrealistic.
IR blaster is cool, but not necessary. NFC is lacking, dont bother me actually.
Lollipop upgrade make UI look better.
Overall, for the price i paid, i have no complain at all. And everyone look curious bout my phone. Mostly are positive feedback.
it's a very good phone
but please why we can't get Android V 5.1.1 Lollipop till now?

Anonymous, 20 Oct 2015Hi Guys, I am using Huawei honor 6 from previous 4 months and it is amazing phone with excell... moreYeah right! Mine hangs up on both web browsers - phones original and Chrome. Today it started to copy-paste text with ever increasing length when I used backspace button to delete a few letters in a message... Few backspaces gave me several lines of unwanted mess of letters. More so most of the positive comments abouth this phone are so rudimentary in this forum that I wonder if those are genuine users or just trolls from Huawei farm.
AnonD-456853, 19 Oct 2015PLEASE HELP MEE..... Iam from india which is the best phone ... Xiaomi MI4 vs Huawei Honor 6... moreHonor 6 is the best when compare to Mi4i and one plus one, because it has better battery and IR feature
AnonD-456853, 19 Oct 2015PLEASE HELP MEE..... Iam from india which is the best phone ... Xiaomi MI4 vs Huawei Honor 6... moreTwo weeks with this one and sorry, I wish I had chosen a Samsung instead. There is a reason why these cost less.
I am using Huawei honor 6 from previous 4 months and it is amazing phone with excellent feature of 3GB Ram, and 13MP back and 5MP front camera.
Camera Quality is very good and picture captured in night is awesome and day too. so overall camera picture quality is very good. i am satisfied with this.
Battery performance is also good. with normal use it discharged in approx 36 hours.
and it fully charged in 2 hours only.
Gaming performance is also good.
Voice call quality is very good.
It support app2sd also also.
*No Heating No Hanging Problem
if anyone want to buy a phone which has everything can go for honor 6 for sure.
pranav, 15 Oct 2015No doubt about honor 6 . .. Blindly go for the honor 6. ..Do use time at a store and check the test unit well for functionalities before deciding - it is not as perfect as some sellers and commentators would like you to think. It supports few languages set for each region it is sold at, if you need more languages than the ones that are installed for your region, external applications with their flaws are your only option. Camera has zoom, but why have zoom if that reduces the picture quality as you zoom in? Pictures stored from this phone on SD-card are not readable on windows platform (excuse me if there are some tricks that have to be performed... that should be straight forward in my opinion, but it is not). It is not very intuitive and not everything described in users manual is quite like that in reality. And after two long chats with support and reverting back to factory settings my unit turns out to be most likely defective - have to return it to the store for further testing and eventual replacement. Make sure you buy it from a serious shop where your consumer rights are honoured. In my opinion buying this phone was a big mistake. Not a reliable product at all, corresponds exactly to what "Made in China" means in my experience.
