Get Smart With Huawei honor 7

Product Review By Suriani Razali

KUALA LUMPUR, Oct 10 (Bernama) -- Cell phones have become an integral part of our lives. While men carry them in their pants pocket, women generally carry it in their handbag.

Huawei, one of the world's largest smartphone manufacturers, has unravelled the "mystery" by unveiling last month its latest product 'honor 7', which is specially equipped to help the owner locate the device with a smart voice feature.
