Windows Phones are less common, but emphasize integration with Microsoft products and offer high end camera software on certain models.

2. Brand:

Brand is important and it is recommended everyone should choose well-known mobile phone brand since you can get better products and services. HONOR brand is known for its quality products and value for money mobile phones. HONOR phones are all built on Android system, with good quality and powerful standby capacity and performance.

Generally, larger RAM memory make a smoother mobile phone running experience. It is recommended that a smartphone’s RAM should be more than 4G. ROM storage is generally higher than 32G, and 64GB is recommended. Since some HONOR phones support expanded storage, so this is no longer an issue. For some models, the ROM storage can be extended to 256GB.

4. Screen resolution:

Resolution can have a huge impact on the phone experience, and it is recommended to choose a higher resolution, which should be at least 1280x720. For example, HONOR 10 which was released in 2018 has a resolution of 2280x1080 pixels.

5. Android system version:

Android system is updated quickly, so it is recommended that you choose the new version of Android. Newer phones are typically faster and more powerful than their respective older versions. Certainly newer phones will be at a higher cost. However, what is also worth mentioned is that older model phones usually have difficulties running new applications. When a new phone model is released, the older models will immediately go down or the price will often decrease.

Regardless of your choice, understand that technology moves very quickly and that newer phone models will continue to appear. Eventually every smartphone will seem old or obsolete. At present, HONOR Play, HONOR 10 and HONOR 7S are all running latest Android 8.1.0(Android Oreo).

6. Purchase channel:
