When i got my first cellular phone back in 1996 (a Motorola) most people i knew at the time despised even the idea of people being able to reach them when not at home so buying such a "gadget" was simply out of the question. Fast forward 16 years later and the same people now own not one but at least two cellular phones with two or more different numbers. Of course compared to back then the new smartphones are now immeasurably more powerful and can also act like mini computers capable of doing pretty much anything one would want while on the road or at home from taking pictures, recording/watching HD (high definition) video clips and listening to music to browsing the internet, using social sites, storing notes and checking to see your exact position via GPS (Global Positioning Satellites). Huawei may not be name many people recognize in the word of smartphones but they are amongst the top manufacturers of pretty much everything related to communications and today with us we have their U8860 Honor smartphone.

The U8860 Honor comes with Android 2.3 and sports an 1.4GHz MSM8255T CPU, 512MB of RAM, 4” FWVGA screen, front 0.3 megapixel camera for voice calls and an 8 megapixel HD camera paired with a LED flash. Based on its specifications alone there's no doubt that most people will think that it can't match the performance of all the dual-core CPU smartphones out there but (i also thought of that at first) i was really surprised to see that this wasn't the case at all. True the exterior of the unit is not of the exact same quality you will find with many other smartphones out there today (i didn't have an issue with it but others seem to disagree) but Huawei obviously had to find ways to keep the cost of unit from skyrocketing so that's really fine by me. So let's take a closer look at the U8860 Honor smartphone by Huawei.
