Honor Play

Value For Money

The Honor Play has an RRP of £279.99 but it can be purchased, currently, for around £240 which when you consider what you get, it's really good value for money. 

If you have a bit more cash to splash then the Honor 9 or Honor 10 might be worth a look or you could go for one of the Nokia smartphones such as the Nokia 7.1 or Nokia 6.1. For more smartphones around this kind of price point, have a look at our Best Smartphones under £300 for Photography feature. We also have a round-up of camera phones under £200 should you really want to save yourself some cash. 


Honor Play Verdict

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 of the scale, times when the AI can add a little too much 'pow' but generally speaking, it's a decent shooter for the price point. Plus, there are some cool features built in that make photography fun, and creative. If you don't want to spend much more than £250 on a smart device, the Honor Play is a good option. 


Honor Play Pros

  • Metal Design
  • Display is excellent
  • Decent photo quality 
  • Good battery
  • Price

Honor Play Cons

  • AI mode can over saturate images 
  • Extreme wide dynamic range can be tricky for the camera
