The Honor's a defo gamechanger, but good luck buying one


The phone might have good features

but my personal experience with Huawei tells me to buy something else next time.

My 2 1/2 years old Honor 2 had just two updates after release. The first to 4.1 was so buggy that it was unusable - their fix was to offer a downgrade to 4.0. The second update to 4.2 came after one year. It was actually usable. It was also the last update this phone ever saw. At least in the international market.

Looking at the P6 and P7 update availability, the situation might have changed somewhat, but they are still not really giving an acceptable after market service outside of China. Given the latest security bugs in Android that's a killer for Huawei in my book.
