It seems that the lines between high-end and mid-range phones are not as clear as they used to be. And in India consumers want to use their smartphone for long term. Therefore, our HONOR's mid-range smartphones will be the most considerable ones.
This year, it is undoubtedly the HONOR Play is just the best mid-range smartphone in India. You can't tell it apart with those high-end devices when it comes to normal day-to-day usage, build quality and choice of materials. Here are its deep reviews.
The smartphone comes with a 6.3-inch full HD display with 19:5:9 display with 2,340 x 1,080-pixel resolution and a notch at the top. A nice size to hold and it works well playing videos.
The EMUI 8.2 based on Android Oreo 8.1 offers some interesting features. For example, the notch can be hidden in a permanent black status bar.
Due to the top-of-the-line chipset Kirin 970's power and AI NPU, you can expect faster and smarter performance of the phone. HONOR understood the popularity of multiplayer combat games and the use of AR, VR and HDR, which require fast graphics processing. To achieve this, the highlights of the phone is its new tech GPU Turbo which is able to run heavier graphics intensive games like PUBG without going hard on the battery of the smartphones.
Besides, the 3750 mAh battery can last for a day and a half with normal usage, while a quick 30-minute session of PUBG drained only 30% of the battery. Using the bundled Fast Charge adaptor, it takes slightly less than 1 hour to reach 75%.
On the camera part, the primary 16MP camera has HONOR's AI system including real-time scene detection while a lower-resolution 2MP secondary camera is there for depth perception for simulated bokeh in portraits. The 16MP selfie camera can take some excellent shots. That said, the camera does perform more than adequately enough for your average social media user.
The HONOR Play was the great surprise of IFA 2018 in Berlin. The device with the slogan Crazy Fast, Crazy Smart was the winner of Best of IFA 2018 awards from industry's top media.
