Honor:

The market share of Honor products is manageable, but there are several reviews on Honor smartphones with average ratings (as of 2016).


82.8%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.
