Apple's Next U.S. Rival?
Outside the U.S., Huawei and its Honor smartphone brand are increasingly becoming a big deal. In the U.S., not so much: Huawei's share of the U.S. market in the third quarter was a paltry 0.4 percent, according to Canalys. But the Chinese company is pushing to change that. Most recently, Huawei launched a smartphone during CES 2017 in Las Vegas, the Honor 6X, that is aimed at grabbing millennial customers away from Apple's iPhone brand. While touting customer satisfaction scores for the Honor brand on par with those of the iPhone, Huawei Honor President Ming Zhao said during CES: "We know that today's young people want to have everything. Today, Honor 6X gives them that."
But does it? In the following slides, the CRN Test Center breaks down how the Huawei's Honor 6X compares to the similar-sized Apple iPhone 7 Plus on specs and price.
