Our Findings

Honor is a subsidiary of Huawei and is headquartered in China. Although the company makes premium smartphones, it faces the heat every time its parent company finds itself in controversies. Honor phones use Huawei’s homegrown HiSilicon processors and baseband chip that are reported to contain backdoors and can be used to access data without your knowledge. This is a claim that cannot be taken lightly, especially when Huawei faces criticism related to cybersecurity and privacy. Honor’s response to all these claims have been simple and straightforward: Our phones are not a security threat.

If you use an Honor phone, you’ll know that it’s a good device that’s built to last long. However, it’s hard to overlook the fact that your information might also last long in Chinese servers. Huawei’s attempts to regain Indian consumers by making their phones in India might convince some, but it’s ultimately a proper Chinese smartphone brand – something that makes it very hard for us to recommend this brand.
