The Honor Play is a super attractive gaming phone that provides you with a value for your money. This phone, launched last year in August 2018, packs great impressive features, even if you are not much of a gamer. It has great performance and battery life, and looks stunning with its build.
In this Honor Play review, let us explore all the Honor Play specifications and Honor Play features in detail:
Honor Play is a gaming mobile, which is designed to impress. It has Honor’s GPU Turbo technology and is available in many attractive colours. It has great performance, although the camera could be better.
It is an attractive and good-looking smartphone. The design is similar to the Honor 10, it has an appealing matte metal-finish back plate, and the front has a glass build that looks amazing. The USB Type-C port, 3.5mm earphone jack and mono speaker grill is placed at the bottom, and the volume and power buttons are placed on the right side. The left side houses the SIM tray.
This phone flaunts a 6.3 inches capacitive display with a 2,340 x 1,080 pixels resolution. It supports full HD+ and gives a crisp visual experience. Moreover, it has a notch in its display.
This phone has dual primary cameras of 16 MP + 2 MP with depth sensor, LED flash, HDR, and panorama, along with a 16 MP front camera. The aesthetics of the pictures are good, with satisfactory details and colours due to the pixel binning technology; however, one is left wanting more in the camera aspect, especially in less-than-optimal lighting conditions.
Honor Play comes with Huawei’s Kirin 970 processor, which really packs a punch. But the real winner is the GPU Turbo feature that boosts the performance of the phone multifold, especially to enable heavy gaming. It has quick launches and smooth multitasking. It also has an added interesting feature called the AI 4D Smart Shock that provides haptic feedback unique to different games.
The phone operates on the Android 8.1 (Oreo). Moreover, it has the EMUI 8.2, which makes the user interface smooth and swift. The phone is great at multitasking.
It has a 64GB internal memory and a micro SD slot for 256GB expandable memory. This storage is good and sufficient for big applications to function smoothly and works efficiently.
The 3750 mAh battery is brilliant as it can last up to a day and a half, even with heavy usage. With a few more implementations, Honor is planning to enhance this amazing battery life even further.
In connectivity features, it has Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, NFC, and USB.
