Huawei Honor Play Best Price in India 2018

Honor Play design

A departure from current premium Honor and Huawei smartphones, the Honor Play has a metallic body and not a glass rear panel. Honor suggests that it is keeping options open for its audience, giving people both a bold glass design and a subtle metallic design to choose from. We found the metallic body to be quite comfortable to hold, but it obviously lacks the shimmer of the company’s now-trademark multi-coloured glass designs. The phone will be made available in India in black and blue.

The Honor Play sports a 6.3-inch full-HD+ (1080×2340 pixels) IPS LCD display with a 19.5:9 aspect ratio, and can reproduce 85 percent of the NTSC colour gamut. The design isn’t borderless, but there is still a substantial notch at the top of the screen. There is also a large chin on the bottom, with Honor branding, but decently thin sides. Courtesy the tall form factor, the Honor Play is easy to hold in one hand. The Home, Back, and Recents navigation keys are on-screen. The notch can be masked by adding black borders on either side. The notch houses the front 16-megapixel camera and the necessary sensors.

The rear of the smartphone has a vertically aligned dual rear camera setup with ‘AI Camera’ branding. Thre’s a 16-megapixel primary sensor with an f/2.2 aperture lens, and a 2-megapixel secondary camera with an f/2.4 aperture. The native camera app has a toggle for AI mode, which seemed to over-sharpen images taken in bright sunlight or with good indoor lighting. We have not yet tested the Honor Play’s low-light and macro capabilities, and you will have to wait till our review for our full judgement of this phone’s cameras.

In the limited time that we spent with the Honor Play, we found the fingerprint sensor on the back to be placed a bit too high for our comfort. But in terms of performance, we found it to be quick and accurate.
