HUAWEI Honor 6 Review, Unlock Bootloader and ROOT
HUAWEI released the Honor 6 the other day. The Honor 6 has highly cost-effective. I will rush to purchase it on the web tomorrow. If I can get it, I will review it as soon as possible at this thread. If not, the review will be put off. Now, I want to share its specs and photos with you.
Display: 5-inch display and 1920 x 1080 resolution.
CPU: Hisilicon K920 octa-core ( the performance is over Snapdragon 801)
GPU: Mali T628
ROM: 16GB or 32GB
OS: EMOTION UI 2.3 Android 4.4.2
Price: 1999 Yuan for the 16GB ( about 322 USD) 2299 Yuan for the 32GB (about 370 USD)
The good: There are too many merits in my opinions. The performance is top. Battery life and camera is wonderful. Moreover, the design is great.
The bad: The bottom of the screen is a little yellow when shows white. Besides, it only supports GSM, TD-SCDMA and TD-LTE.
It’s the first phone that is more beautiful than rendering I have ever seen. The front is very concise, where is nothing unless the telephone receiver, front camera and sensor. The frame is made of plastic but feels like metal. The back is flat and is made of plastic but feels like glass. Besides, the rear cover can’t be removed. In general, the design is great.
5 inch, 1920x1080, OGS, LTPS display. It supports air view, handling with glove and wet. The color reproduction is natural and real. Brightness and view angles also are great. It’s my favorite point that the resolution ratio can be adjusted to 720p by ROG. It’s more power saving at 720P. However，the bottom of the screen is a little yellow when shows white.
I don’t want to say more about performance just posting some screenshots.
There are many modes including normal, smart, beauty, water mark, filters, panorama, audio control, audio note, best photo, HDR, all-focus. All these are very interesting and useful. If you want to know these completely, you need spend plenty of time to test them. Now, I just share some unique points with you.
If you have some question, please ask me, I will answer you.
The first I like is that the All-focus modes. In this mode, you can take a photo without focus, and then you can click anywhere of the photo to focus. The second is quick capture. You only need to press the less volume key continuously twice when screen is off. And then you can get a photo in about one second. As for the imaging quality, I’m not professional, so I just post some photos.
Huawei Honor 6 Smartphone with OS Android 4.4.2 KitKat, Graphics interface Emotion UI 2.3. It’s super smooth and magnificent. There are a lot of wallpapers and themes at local. If you want to more, you can download from online store freely. And there many transitions and widgets can be chosen. The simple home is similar to WP. What’s more, the smart control is useful, you can control nearly all household appliances such as air-condition, TV and DVD. The tone quality is wonderful in headphones but is common in speaker.
It’s amazing that Honor has a 3100mah battery in 7.5mm thickness. As a phone heavy user, I can charge honor 6 once a day. If you are not heavy user, you can charge it two days even three days at a time.
I found this method from here. http://cn.club.vmall.com/thread-997165-1-1.html
I just translate them to English.
1. Apply for the unlocking password
Please click here http://en.club.vmall.com/emotiondown...ock&action=pre
1. Download the driver for your device from Huawei Device’s official website to a computer.
2. Download the ADB toolkit from Google’s website and install it on the computer. For example, install the toolkit to D:\adb_tools-2.0. Ensure that the folder contains the fastboot.exe file.
1. Switch the device to fastboot mode.
Power off the device. (Note: Go to the settings menu and disable the fastboot function, or power off the device, remove the battery, and then wait for at least 2 seconds before reinstalling the battery.) For a mobile phone, press and hold the volume down and power keys simultaneously for at least 10 seconds (for a tablet, press and hold the volume up and power keys).
2. Connect the device to the computer.
Connect the device to the computer using a USB cable. From the computer, open the command window, enter the directory where the ADB toolkit is installed, and check that the device is connected to the computer properly. To do so, enter fastboot devices, and press Enter, if a message such as 9e42530e fastboot is displayed, the connection is set up properly.
3. Run the unlocking command.
In the computer’s command window, enter fastboot oem unlock password, for example, fastboot oem unlock 1234567812345678.
4. Complete the device bootloader unlocking.
Enter the unlocking password. Your device then restarts. (If the password entered is correct, the device will be restored to its factory settings, after which the device restarts and enters standby mode. The device’s bootloader is unlocked. If the password entered is incorrect, a message is displayed and the device enters standby mode.)
5. Check whether the unlocking succeeded.
Repeat steps 1 and 2. In the computer’s command window, enter fastboot oem get-bootinfo, the bootloader lock state of your device is displayed. Bootloader Lock State: LOCKED indicates that the bootloader is still locked. Re-perform the unlocking procedure and check that the password is correctly entered. Bootloader Lock State: UNLOCKED indicates that your device’s bootloader has been unlocked. You can then install a third-party firmware.
I use SHUAME to root it. Others also are OK. It's easy to root after unlocking bootloader.
