Honor Series by Huawei


Huawei, a China-based mobile phone giant have finally come up with a brand name that is more highly acceptable to a global market. Just recently, the Honor mobile phone series was launch to go head-to-head with other mobile phone giants that has become an iconic hose-hold name to all mobile phone users. 



A few years ago, one of my first smart phone was Huawei Accend Quad XL. It was one of the early quad-core smart phones in the market that is equipped with an eight mega pixel camera. At that time, for me, it was pretty high end. One experience that changed my perception with China-made smart phone was an experience that really blew me away.

Last 2012, I participated in a kayak 25km marathon from Bataan to Subic and back. My partner and I paddled the 25km race in the open sea for more than five hours and only to realize that my Huawei Phone was still in my pocket without any protective case. It was drenched in salt water for hours. My realization was alarmed by a text message, so that’s why I knew it was still with me. When we got back to the shore, I resigned to the fact that my phone is destroyed. But lo and behold, after two days of air-dry, the phone booted up and is working until now! From then on, I see Huawei Phones a lot differently.
