    All the batteries of their Honor 6 phones are getting bust after just 15-18 months of use. you can search for this on Google. And their service centers are openly looting customers by charging anywhere from Rs 1,500 to Rs 3,000 to change the battery and Rs 7,000 to Rs 9,000 to change the motherboard. You can also search for this on Google. I am one of the unfortunate customers stuck with the worst quality of this Huawei Honor 6 phone bought in January 2015. I will not buy any Huawei phone in future. Better to burn my money than waste it on a third grade useless phone. :(lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;Amit Goyal.
