Huawei is one of the few Chinese handset makers to enjoy a rise in popularity outside its home country. With the launch of the Honor 7 smartphone it looks like Huawei is going all-out to crack the west. The Honor 6 is available through Amazon for an extremely reasonable £250 all-in, and for that you get quite a lot of smartphone.

Warning: In this way, you can only backup your phone data to internal storage (SD card). What if my SD has limitation storage? Besides, it mean you properly would suffer data loss under following circumstances: phone stolen, SD card damaged, water damaged, etc.

Obviously, it remains at higher risks of backing up Huawei Honor phone to internal storage via the original backup method. Hence, we usually turn to the third-party backup tool - Syncios Data Transfer, to backup everything by one mouse click. It enables you to backup and restore contacts, app, app data, calendars, music, video, photos, SMS and call logs breathtakingly easy without any quality loss.
