With decent performance, a camera that’s capable of great things, solid build quality and exemplary battery life, the Honor 6A does most of the basics well - but not all.

- Jon Mundy, TechRadar
Android Central

This cheap, metal clad phone is very good. But it's not the best at its price point.

Notebookcheck

A declaration of war on entry-level smartphones

from Notebookcheck

With the 6A, Honor has managed to keep to its ideal of producing smartphones that are good value for their money. The 5-inch Android, available for $200 and below, has quite a lot to offer: a well-manufactured case made from plastic and metal, a bright and well-adjusted HD display, long battery runtimes and fast system performance.

A good, cheap phone with a couple of flaws

The Honor 6A is yet another good smartphone from Huawei's sub-brand that's also available for an excellent price. It looks great, it performs very well, the camera isn't bad and the battery life is superb. There's nothing wrong with it in so far as what you actually get. It's all very good. The Honor 6A is let down by what isn't there, notably the fingerprint scanner. If that or NFC for Android Pay is on your must have list, then the Honor 6A is not for you.
