Huawei presented a new smartphone recently in Europe and the new LTE smartphone name is Honor Play, which is aimed especially at users who want to play games in their smartphone. The device has integrated a powerful processor with “GPU Turbo” and offers a very large display. Today, we will check details about the Honor Play and the technology that offered by Huawei in this smartphone.
The display of the Honor Play is comparatively large with 6.3 inches. The resolution is very high at 2340 x 1080 pixels, so the presentation is always sharp. The positive feature in the test is the very good display brightness. The frame around the display is pretty narrow, in this area of the display, for example, pictograms can be displayed.
The Honor Play not only offers a fingerprint sensor to unlock but also a face recognition. Both methods work reliably and quickly. The fingerprint sensor is positioned well on the back and works faster than the face recognition, but overall, the face recognition with sufficient light left a very good impression.
Enough performance for the gaming smartphone
The battery lasted in the test pleasingly long, about 2 days were possible with moderate use and about a day with normal use. Charging is via USB C fast charging function, wireless charging via Qi standard does not support the device unfortunately.
The modem made a good impression, up to 240 Mbit/s could be measured via LTE in the downlink. The reception and voice quality was good in the test.
The Honor Play is a very good smartphone for the price of just around 400USD. One thing has to mention is that Honor Play is an explicit gaming smartphone. Of course, you can play well with the Honor Play – but that works just as well with many other smartphones. For example, if you value Turbo on the GPU, you can buy an Honor 10 or a Huawei P20 which have the same performance.
