Evidence Honor 6 Plus camera is Android’s Best Yet?

Every now and then something we spot on Twitter wows us so much that we feel a need to share it with our readers, today we have to show you how impressive the dual 8 megapixel cameras are on the Huawei Honor 6 Plus – thanks to a photo which popped up on my Twitter feed a couple of days ago.

The photo, in our opinion, is up there with any photo we have seen taken on a smartphone device, no filter or other manipulation has taken place aside from choosing the focus point, something the Honor 6 Plus allows you to do post shoot.

We have embedded the photo further down this post (click on it for a larger view), it was taken by Gavin Hoey, a freelance photographer who appears to have been blown away by the smartphone’s wide aperture effects feature. As well as being active on Twitter (follow @Gavin_Hoey) he also has his own YouTube Channel and his own training website ( – so if you want to see more hands-on action with what could be regarded as Android best camera to date, be sure to take a look. We have also embedded a video of his at the bottom of this post where he showcases the wide aperture effects feature.


Now that you are reading this we thought we’d give you a little more information regarding the Honor 6 Plus’ cameras. We’ve probably all dabbled with HDR in the past, but this handset allows you to take True HDR shots, the difference? Well it uses both cameras to photos simultaneously with different exposures, it then maps them together to give you a True HDR shot, single camera smartphones have to take one exposure shot followed by the next, so any slight movement can ruin what would be a great shot on the Honor 6 Plus. Oh and there’s a dual LED flash, which is neatly supported by a colossal battery.

We’ve checked out Twitter and there’s a huge buzz about this camera – but is it Android’s best yet? Let us know below!

If you’ve taken a photo you’re proud of with the Honor 6 Plus email me or Tweet me and I’ll add it to this post – no filters etc!
