Honor Play

 

The Honor Play may be a gaming-focused smartphone but the specs and price make this Kirin 970-powered handset a worthwhile option for anyone after a deal.

Affordable performance ; Rich user experience ; Strong battery life ; Attractive screen

GPU Turbo only benefits compatible games ; Smart Shock feature not available at launch ; No IP certified protection ; Metal body is slippery

Like the display, I assumed that the low-cost nature of the Honor Play meant that, with performance and battery as good as they are, the camera would be far more pedestrian. However, the moment I started snapping with the phone’s 16-megapixel...

Honor Play review: The best affordable phone on the planet

 

The company's best phone to date and at a price that's simply incredible. This is a serious handset, one strong enough to take the eyes off OnePlus

Incredible price point makes it the sub-£300 phone to buy ; Accomplished metal unbody design ; Outstanding battery life ; Lots of power on tap (and GPU Turbo for gaming extras)

Irksome vibration sound ; Yes there's a notch ; Paint finish around cameras scratches ; Won't totally beat all flagships for load time/speed

Honor Play review

 

Gets your game on… without giving the game away

Stellar gaming performance ; Great value considering the hardware ; Notched screen is on point for 2018

Camera is fairly average for the cash ; Performance gains are pretty minor

Satisfies your gaming addiction, but loses out in other areas to focus on performance. Still a bit of a bargain, though.

Honor Play review

 

A brand new mid-range phone for Honor

Slim, attractive design ; Top-end power ; Big display

One storage option ; No wireless charging ; Singular speaker

There isn't much that makes the Honor Play excel as a gaming phone apart from its powerful internals, but with a huge screen and a premium look it makes for an all-round impressive device. That's especially true when you consider the price.

Honor Play review: Honor’s affordable gaming flagship

 

The Honor Play is all about on-the-go gaming, but is there more to this smartphone than its gaming gimmicks?

Excellent-quality display ; Long-lasting battery life ; Excellent performance for the price

Uninspired design

Again, I ask the question: why spend upwards of four figures on the latest flagship phone? The Honor Play is a near-perfect, shining example that you can save your pocket money and buy a handset that you might not have previously considered, and be...

Honor Play

 

The Honor Play is the Huawei offshoot's challenger to the Razer Phone, with top specs at a much lower price. Here's what we think of the latest take on the gaming phone.

Honor Play Smartphone Review

 

The Honor Play is build a smartphone for mobile gamers who are on a budget but can its cameras also tempt photographers? Let's find out.

The Honor Play is another lovely looking smartphone from Honor that doesn't cost the earth. It's got an excellent screen, decent battery and can capture a good photo. Yes, there are times when images can lack a little 'oomph' and, at the opposite end...
