1900 mAh Lithium – ion battery
In terms of media and connectivity, you pretty much get everything with the Huawei Honor and while only a full review can give us the actual picture, the 1900 mAh Lithium – ion battery may mean that its got the potential to outlast the other smartphones in the same price bracket. For example, the Neo V has a 1500 mAh battery, the Optimus Black and even the Xperia Pro have a 1500 mAh battery.
The other phones falling within a similar price bracket include the LG Optimus Black, the Xperia Active and the Xperia Pro. There’s also the Atrix 2 for close to 22K, but it’s a dual core smartphone. For close to a grand cheaper you also have the following set of smartphones – the Sony Ericsson Xperia Neo V, the Galaxy S LCD and the Xperia Ray. As we can see, the Huawei Honor has a pretty big competition to fight it out against. The Xperia Neo V in particular has become more of a crowd favourite and the main difference between the two phones is that the Neo V comes with a 3.7-inch screen, as opposed to the 4-inch one of the Honor.
