I was wanting to buy a new Android device, now that my Nexus 1 is starting to show signs of old age 🙂

I wanted to buy the Nexus 6, but didn’t want to spend 48K on that device, given the fact that I’d be unemployed soon 🙂

A month back, this device, Huawei Honor Holly was introduced and I casually registered on Flipkart to notify me when it’s back in stock. I almost forgot it until one fine afternoon, I got an email saying that it’s back in stock. I just did some casual research about the device, found it cool for 7K and swapped my credit card 🙂 And the next day, this is what I had with me:



Unboxing it, it turned out to be an awesome treat!



I enjoyed this phone. Some important specs that drew me to this device include 16GB of internal storage, 5″ HD IPS Screen, 1080p Video Recording through a 8Mp Cam and Android 4.4.2. The build quality is also pretty impressive and so is the Battery. I even connected it to Android Studio and uploaded one of my Android apps and it works sleak.

I call this device, the poor Man’s Nexus 6 🙂

Also, since the chipset is based on the same one as found on Android One Devices, I’m hopeful we can expect upgrades to upcoming Android OSes either from the OEM themselves or through custom ROMs.

I’m glad that  I got this device 🙂

    Have you made sure that ADB Debugging on your phone is enabled? If yes, I installed this ADB and fastboot driver for this device as my earlier ADB drivers for Nexus one weren’t working.
