Honor may be Huawei’s e-commerce brand offering handsets at a cheaper price than Huawei does itself, but the company is making its own waves with handsets that aim to change the status quo.

In August last year, we had the Honor 6, a handset that aimed to offer a £500 5-inch smartphone experience at a Nexus-like price and now we have the Honor 6 Plus, which aims to bring the phablet experience at almost half the price.

As the saying often goes, you get what you pay for, but does it apply in this case and will spending more get you a better phablet? Let’s take a closer look.

The Honor 6 Plus shares many traits with the Huawei P8, including slim bezels on either side of the display to create a display that is a pleasure to use. The metal edges and the glass back combination may not be for everyone but the handset is actually nice to hold in the hand; it's worth noting that the glass back does make the handset somewhat slippery though.
