The first feature which will freak out the gamers is Smart Shock which allows gamers to have 4D gaming experience.

We can humbly say that with these features include it cheap price, Honor Play meets expectations of users. Although you can increase the storage capacity with a microSD card up to 256 GB, it is really sad to having no options.

Coming with Android 8.1 Oreo operation system, Honor Play uses EMUI 8.2 as an interface on the device. There are also 802.11ac Wi-Fi and NFC support. However we face Bluetooth 4.2 instead of Bluetooth 5. On the other hand there is really smooth finger print sensor on the device itself.

The battery capacity of the device, powered with 3750 mAh battery which we talked about it early of this review. As we said again Honor Play can last one and half day easily at daily usages. However at intensive situations we recommend that you should decrease the brightness of the screen in order to avoid from fast battery consumptions. There is also an important point that Honor Play doesn’t come with Wireless Charge Support which may sadden the users. It is important to note that there is no Water Proof certificate coming with Honor Play.
