The HONOR Play was released recently and caught a lot of attention because of its good specifications to price ratio.
The HONOR Play with metal clad build
It has a large 6.3-inch 1080p IPS display with Gorilla Glass protection and it is powered by last year's flagship chipset, the Kirin 970 octa-core processor.
HONOR Play in front
It is the same chip that was powering the Mate 10/10 Pro and the P20/P20 Pro. This alone makes it more than worth it at its PHP 15,990 price tag.
For graphics, it has the Mali-G72 MP12. It also has 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, and large 3,750mAh battery.
Big and immersive display
One of them is its massive 6.3-inch screen on a body of a 5.5-inch traditional smartphone. It has small bezels an large screen-to-body ratio for a more immersive viewing experience. In addition, its color reproduction and viewing angles are great.
The HONOR Play also supports GPU Turbo which is a hardware-software integrated graphics acceleration solution that enhances the graphics performance and battery consumption of smartphones which promises one of the best gaming experiences.
How GPU Turbo works?
In particular, it can boost gaming performance by up to 60 percent and improve battery efficiency by up to 30 percent.
The HONOR Play also has a large 3,750mAh battery. In our test, it lasted for 10 hours and 33 minutes. For straight gaming, you can play PUBG Mobile at the highest settings for over 4 hours straight.
Smooth for gaming
HONOR is also taking advantage of AI to give its customers the best possible experience may it be for daily tasks, multimedia consumption, and gaming.
AI 4D smart shock
1. The AI 4D smart shock that improves immersion by using an AI to recognize images and sounds in real time and then vibrate the phone a specific way in 30 different scenarios that adds a fourth dimension aside from the standard audio and visual experience when consuming content and playing games.
This results in vibrations that simulate the direction of the sound or the kickbacks of guns and or enemy fire. Think of it as a kind of AI improved Dual Shock system when playing Call of Duty from Sony's Playstation controller but with 30 different scenarios.
Good for multimedia
2. While the other is AI 3D surround sound that uses the Histen 7.1 3D surround sound technology that will need a supported wired earphone or headphones to add a 3D stereo effect. It uses AI to simulate three different surround sound modes of near, front and wide and is supported by games like PUBG Mobile and Mobile Legends. Think of it as an AI powered Dolby Atmos surround sound for cinemas and games.
The flagship processor and memory along with the GPU turbo, Histen 7.1 3D surround sound technology and AI come together to give the one of the best possible multimedia and gaming experience at the PHP 15,990 price point.
This is what makes the HONOR Play great.
