Honor Play – Gaming Phone Review
  • In the last three years, Huawei’s Honor has made a name for itself with excellent phones that cost far less than half the price of top-end rivals. The Honor Play is another great entry in the line costing even less.

Huawei’s Honor sub-brand has been firing out great phones at a rate of knots, with the Honor Play the latest in its line of lower-cost top-spec phones.

The Play doesn’t deviate from the winning formula used by the last few top-end Honor smartphones: a flagship processor, plenty of memory and storage, a big screen and battery life reaching well into the second day.

On the outside the Play is a remix of sorts between the 名誉 10 with its notched screen and the metal unibody of the 名誉 10 ビュー (which was confusingly released before the Honor 10).

The result is a very smooth and solid-feeling phone reminiscent of the iPhone 7, with a simple metal back and a front dominated by the screen. Glass may be the material of the moment, but the Honor Play is one of the best feeling phones to my hands right now.

The full HD+ LCD screen is big, bright and crisp with excellent viewing angles, but it’s also long and relatively narrow, which makes handling it relatively easy.

The large notch at the top of the screen containing the selfie camera, sensors and earpiece speaker gets in the way more than I would like. With Bluetooth headphones connected, the phone set to vibrate and connected to wifi there is no room in the status bar for any notification icons.

At 7.5mm thick and 176g in weight, the Play matches up well to all its top-end competition. There’s a headphone socket and USB-C port in the bottom, a small dual-camera lump and an excellent fingerprint scanner on the back.

Efficient gaming

Gaming performance was solid and power efficient, but in many ways the Honor Play is a better all-round phone than its gaming marketing might portray. 写真: ガーディアンのためのサミュエルギブス

The Honor Play has the same Huawei Kirin 970 processor and 4GB of memory as the 名誉 10, and performs similarly in day-to-day usage. 電話はてきぱきと感じている, apps launch quickly and switching between those apps fast, if not quite on a par with the OnePlus 6.

Gaming performance was solid but not exceptional in my testing: 30 minute stints of Shadowgun伝説 were relatively smooth and consumed only 0.5% of battery per minute. 比較のために, the same game running on a Google Pixel 2XL consumed 1% 毎分, making the Honor Play twice as efficient for similar performance.

Considering it is a phone marketed for gaming, it’s a shame the Play doesn’t have stereo speakers, but at least the one in the end of the phone is quite loud.

Battery life for the Play worked out slightly worse than Honor’s other Kirin 970-powered phones. It lasted an average of 28 電荷間の時間, starting at 8am one day and making it through till lunchtime on day two.

私のプライマリデバイスとしてそれを使用しながら、それはでした, ブラウジングやプッシュメールやメッセージの数百を受けながら、5時間のアプリを使用して, reading comics for 30 分, playing games for 30 分, 約服用 20 写真とBluetoothヘッドフォンで音楽の7時間に耳を傾け.

EMUI 8.2

オナー 10 EMUIと呼ばれるアンドロイドのHuawei社の修正版を実行 8.2, based on アンドロイド オレオ 8.1.

それは本質的に実行するのと同じバージョンであります 名誉 10, looking like a cross between Android and Apple’s iOS.

EMUI includes the option to switch between having an app drawer or having every app on the homescreen. The Google app’s personalised feed is available on the left-most homescreen pane, and the notifications have a more rounded card look, similar to the recently released アンドロイド 9 パイ.

The notch can also be hidden in a permanent black status bar, and there are plenty of power-saving features you can activate if you need the phone to last as long as possible.

EMUI 8.2 is arguably the best version of Huawei’s software yet, being much less of a Marmite experience for most, but running on last year’s Android Oreo rather than the new Android 9 Pie is a little disappointing, if not unexpected for a phone launched in late August.

The camera app is straightforward and easy to use, but turn off the AI scene recognition for better images. 写真: ガーディアンのためのサミュエルギブス

The dual camera on the back of the Play is similar to previous Honor models, but with a lower-resolution 2-megapixel secondary camera that is just there for depth perception for simulated bokeh in portraits. The primary 16-megapixel camera has Honor’s AI system from the Honor 10.

The camera is capable of capturing detailed photos, even in middling light without the AI system turned on. It isn’t quite on par with the best of the best, but it also isn’t that far off.

With the AI system active, which is meant to recognise objects and optimise the camera’s scent, colours simply looked oversaturated, as if they’ve been passed through an Instagram filter.

The 16-megapixel selfie camera is really very good too, capturing far more detail in the face than even £1,000 phones. Some may not find capturing every blemish and wrinkle all that flattering, but when you can see the reflection of the phone in the lens of your own eye in a selfie, I think you’re on to a winner. You can also enable the various degrees of beauty mode to smooth out your skin.

The fingerprint scanner on the back is still one of the best in the business. 写真: ガーディアンのためのサミュエルギブス
  • Huawei’s Histen sound processing can simulate different 3D sound, such as speakers placed in front of you, using regular wired headphones
  • Vibrations in game are short, sharp and tightly controlled
  • It comes with a clear TPU case in the box
  • Huawei’s facial recognition is very fast, although the fingerprint scanner is more secure


The Honor Play costs £279.99 and is available in blue or black.

比較のために, the 5.9in 名誉 10 costs £400 with 128GB of storage, 6インチ 名誉 10 ビュー 128ギガバイトで£450がかかります, 6.1in Huawei社のP20プロ 128ギガバイトで£799がかかります, 6.28in OnePlus 6 costs £469 with 64GB, 6.2in サムスンギャラクシーS9 + 128ギガバイトで£869がかかります, 6インチ Googleのピクセル 2 XL costs £799 with 64GB, そして、5.8in iPhone X 64ギガバイトで£999がかかります.


In the last three years, Huawei’s Honor has made a name for itself with excellent phones that cost far less than half the price of top-end rivals. The Honor Play is another great entry in the line costing even less.

It’s well made and feels great, has a good screen, 良いバッテリーの寿命, reasonable camera, really great fingerprint scanner on the back and plenty of value-added features. It’s still running Android 8.1 オレオ, not the new アンドロイド 9 パイ, and lacks water resistance, but few smartphones in this price bracket have it.

The only issue is which of the three Kirin 970 Honor phones is the best, as they’re all competing with each other and pretty similar. At £120 less the Honor Play might take the crown from the Honor 10.

If you’re looking for a metal phone under £280 that gets more than just the basics right, the Honor Play should definitely be on your list.

プロたち: まともなバッテリー寿命, 良い成果, まともなカメラ, 良い画面, プレミアムフィール, デュアルSIMのサポート, ヘッドホン・ソケット, efficient gaming

コンズ: 何の耐水ありません, 全くワイヤレス充電しない, AIは、多くの場合、カメラ悪化させます, 何のBluetoothません 5 サポート, only Android 8.1 オレオ
