8 Best Features of the Honor Play
The Honor Play launched in the Philippines in August and it shook the market because of its flagship-grade specs and mid-range pricing. In addition, it also has tricks under the hood that makes it a good gaming phone. But that’s not all, here are 8 best features of the Honor Play.
The Honor Play may be priced like a mid-range but it is built like a flagship. It has a slim metal unibody that is cool to the touch, easy to grip and has a matte finish that repels fingerprints and smudges well. As for colors, there’s the Midnight Black and Navy Blue.
Large display for gaming
The Honor Play comes with a 6.3-inch screen Full HD+ display, 2340 x 1080 resolution, and a pixel density of 409ppi. In addition, it has an 89% screen-to-body ratio so you’re getting plenty of screen real estate and less of the bezels. This should be able to satisfy users who want a good viewing experience especially when gaming.
One of the things that make the Honor Play popular is its flagship-grade specs. For something that is priced like a mid-ranger, this is an amazing feat. What we’re talking about is the Kirin 970, Mali-G72 MP12 GPU, and 4GB RAM, which should be enough for heavy users including mobile gamers. In addition, it has an independent AI NPU that makes AI applications run faster.
Dual rear cameras
Those who are into photography will be glad to know that the Honor Play offers dual rear cameras consisting of a 16MP main sensor and 2MP secondary. The AI NPU also plays a role here as it allows the Honor Play to identify 22 different categories and 500 more scenarios in real-time. It even recognizes and retouches the different parts of what you are shooting at the same time. In addition, the 16MP front camera offers beautification and bokeh effects, as well as five different studio-level portraits with the help of AI.
USB Type-C and 3.5mm audio port
Most flagship smartphones don’t offer a 3.5mm audio port while mid-range ones use microUSB ports. In the case of the Honor Play, it retained the 3.5mm audio port which is great for those who prefer to use their favorite headphones. And for extra convenience, it also has a USB Type-C port so you no longer have to worry about plugging the charging cable the wrong way.
3,750mAh battery w/ Fast Charge
Providing juice to the Honor Play is a 3,750mAh battery which is larger than Honor 10. It is an above average battery capacity that can keep up with heavy users.
One of its most popular features is not a hardware but a software. The GPU Turbo brings about 60% of performance improvement, 30% of power consumption decrease and almost full FPS and FPS stability in large games. It currently supports the popular games in the market like PUBG Mobile, Mobile Legends, and Asphalt 9.
Face Unlock and Fingerprint scanner
If you’re concerned about security, the Honor Play employs two biometric features to make sure that you’re the only one that can access your phone. For convenience, it has AI face unlock that can adapt to various lights and small changes of your face to unlock it more accurately. If you want a more traditional approach, there’s also a fingerprint scanner.
