Android version and market relevance

In the short description of the new smartphone Honor 30 Pro Plus we point out the key characteristics for each smartphone. Firstly, it is an actuality in the market. This model was announced by the company Honor in April 2020. Secondly, this concept of adequacy in the market at the moment. We determine this according to the software version on which the smartphone is running and updating. So, “out of the box” Honor 30 Pro Plus works on Android 10 and has not received until now no updates to the more recent version of the software. In this case, we advise you to avoid buying models that do not receive software updates. Look at the others smartphones of 2020.

Of the features that not all Android smartphones have today, we separately single out support for two SIM cards and the ability to work in 5G networks with a maximum speed of 100 Mb/s. So Honor 30 Pro Plus is a dual-smartphone, so you can combine in one device just two phones. This, of course, is convenient and makes you look more closely at this model. In addition, this model works in the fifth generation networks (5G), and this means that the speed of mobile Internet will be as high as home Wi-Fi (maximum 100 Mb/s). And there is another plus — the smartphone’s battery will be slower to use up the charge and your phone will work longer until the next charge. We have collected all smartphones with support for 5G networks on a specific page in the catalog, so that it is more convenient for you to choose and search for a new smartphone.

Screen, body and battery

Good big 6.57-inch screen, made by technology OLED with screen refresh rate 90 Hz (see all smartphones with screens 90 Hz in the catalog) installed in the smartphone Honor 30 Pro Plus.

The larger the screen, the larger the case. But in addition to the width and height of the hull, its thickness is important. At Honor 30 Pro Plus the thickness of the case is 8.4 mm, which turns out to be very thick. Today, there are many smartphones with a slim body. In addition, the screen area in relation to the body area affects the positive feeling of the phone in the hands. This model has a screen area of more than 90% of the body area (in the catalog we have collected all frameless smartphones). And one more thing, the screen area is increased thanks to the upper cutout above it, while the body area remains unchanged. Honor 30 Pro Plus received a cutout in the form of a small hole at the top of the screen for a selfie camera and multiple sensors. Check out detailed photos of this smartphone for a better understanding of how it looks in real life.

The battery and the operating time also depend on the screen size. At Honor 30 Pro Plus installed battery for 4 000 mAh, and this is a fairly good reserve of capacity, which is exactly enough for you for one day with average usage.

Of the features of the case and form factor, it is worth noting protection against ingress of water and dust inside the body. This model could become a flip smartphone and get into our catalog on a separate page, where all phones with flexible screens are collected. Unfortunately, this did not happen. And therefore, if you are interested in smartphones with such top-end characteristics, we advise you to look at them in our catalog and get a deeper understanding in which direction the entire mobile electronics industry is moving. Perhaps, in a couple of years, every second person on the planet will have such flip smartphones.

Main camera and selfie camera

Take photos and videos on smartphone Honor 30 Pro Plus possible on the main camera (50 MP Wide + 8 MP Telephoto + 16 MP UltraWide + 2 MP Depth sensor) and on the front camera (32 MP Wide + 8 MP UltraWide). We tried to group all smartphones in the catalog into segments and this model with such a main camera got in the top segment. At the moment this is one of the best cameras on the market, so we advise you to buy this smartphone and enjoy the quality of the photos and videos taken on his camera.

Processor and Internal Memory

The more cores the smartphone processor has, the faster it works. Of course, do not forget that the applications should be optimized for the version of Android. But if we are talking about technical characteristics, then the processor here 8-core on the chipset HiSilicon Kirin 990 5G. RAM 8 GB, but if you want, you can buy a version of this smartphone on 12 GB of RAM and, perhaps it will work faster.

Built-in memory for storing different data (photo, video, applications, music, etc.) here 256 GB. Do not forget that the update of the software version will be available for your smartphone, and for this you need to download it first, and if the space is not enough, it will not be able to update. Therefore, we advise you before buying to think about how much internal memory you need.

If we scared you just in the context of the built-in memory, then do not worry, because Honor 30 Pro Plus supports memory cards Nano Memory with the maximum volume 256 GB. And this means that you can store all photos and videos with music on the memory card.

Price for Honor 30 Pro Plus: buy or not to buy?

The smartphone Honor 30 Pro Plus got into our price segment “Flagships smartphones from $500” and began to be sold in April 2020 at a price of $650. Evaluation of the characteristics, probably, you have already folded, and if not, here is our result. Honor 30 Pro Plus is a very smart smartphone with a huge screen and the coolest main camera for today, and the front camera at it turned out simply smart. And to all this we add that the battery is of high capacity.

Is it worth buying now this model of the smartphone, we are talking about our status “Droid-or-Junk”. Of course, at the beginning of sales, almost every smartphone becomes a Droid, and we advise buying such models. But over time, the situation is changing, no one updates the Android version in the smartphone, and in six months or a year this smartphone can already become a Junk. In this case, we advise you to go to the DROID smartphones page in our catalog, where we always show the most current models on sale for today. There are variants from different price segments, so you will have plenty to choose from.

Only the Honor 30 Pro+ received such characteristics: a screen with a refresh rate of 90 Hz, a camera with the ability to record a 1920fps layer, 27W fast wireless charging.
