Short description Honor 30S

This is a smartphone on Android 10 with a very fast and productive processor, with a huge touchscreen size, with a very cool camera that has 4 modules (64 MP Wide, 8 MP Telephoto, 8 MP UltraWide, 2 MP Depth sensor), and the front camera here turned out to be very high quality, which can make beautiful selfies. And Honor 30S has such features: a slot for two SIM cards, cut-out notch above the screen (so that a selfie camera, speakers and additional sensors are placed there).

Versions: CDY-AN90.

Android version and market relevance

Honor 30S was announced by the company Honor in March 2020 and in the same year official sales began in stores. The device was placed in the series of smartphones Honor 30. Honor 30S works on Android 10, but, unfortunately, this version of the software has not been updated. And before listing all the main characteristics of this model, it is important to note that in Honor 30S implemented support for working with two SIM cards and support for 5G networks (all 5G-smartphones).

And if you want to look at the competitors of this smartphone, then in our catalog on the page “Smartphones of the year 2020” all models of the same year are presented. And it will also be useful to look at the page with smartphones at a similar price, like Honor 30S — this is the price segment page “Above average smartphones from $400 to $500”.

Screen, body and battery

By the size of the Honor 30S screen, we were assigned to a segment phablets (smartphones with a huge screen), considering that the bezels around the screen are very small (all smartphones with an edge-to-edge screen). See for yourself, here is LTPS IPS LCD-screen with diagonal 6.5″ and with a punch-like notch for selfie camera and sensors.

Dimensions of the screen dictate to us and the size of the case. At Honor 30S the case turned out very thick — 8.6 mm. Today you can easily choose and buy a new smartphone with a very thin case. The battery in this model has a capacity 4 000 mAh. 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

The smartphone Honor 30S has two cameras: main camera (64 MP Wide + 8 MP Telephoto + 8 MP UltraWide + 2 MP Depth sensor) and front-camera (16 MP Wide). If you look at the quality of the photo of the main camera, then these are very good photos with high quality and detail. Look at the example of photos and videos taken on this smartphone.

In addition, the main camera has a feature, namely additional modules. It is better to judge about the advantages and disadvantages of several lenses in one smartphone, as well as about the possibilities of software image enhancement, by real photos and videos taken with such a camera. Therefore, be sure to look at all the photos of the Honor 30S on this page in order to draw your conclusion on whether this is a good camera or not.

In this smartphone, the front camera is located as usual at the top of the screen, like in 99.9% of other models. We have collected smartphones with pop-up front camera in the catalog that may seem much more interesting to you. In these models, there are practically no frames around the screen, because the front camera is located inside the case and does not take up space above the screen. The selfie camera only pops up when you activate the front camera mode. Take a photo or video, exit the Camera application. And after that, the socket with the front camera drives into the body. Real engineering magic!

Processor and Internal Memory

The smartphone performance is affected by a lot of factors, and even more so on the android-smartphone, where the developer of the Android operating system and the device manufacturer are absolutely different companies and each develops with its strategy in the market. As a result, in the smartphone you get a hodgepodge: it′s like a “clean” Android, but with a shell from the manufacturer; as though only the necessary applications, but also many unnecessary from the manufacturer. Very often Android-installed apps by default, which you do not even use, are still running and working, they occupy part of the RAM and processor time of your smartphone. This slows the work of other applications and the battery charge is wasted.

So, in Honor 30S is installed 8-core processor on the chipset HiSilicon Kirin 820 5G. As for RAM, the memory module is used here 8 GB.

You can store your photos, videos, music and applications both on the built-in smartphone memory, and on memory cards Nano Memory up to 256 GB. The manufacturer releases several versions of this smartphone with different memory sizes: 128/256 GB. Before buying, be sure to decide how many gigabytes you need.

Price for Honor 30S: buy or not to buy?

The smartphone Honor 30S got into our price segment “Above average smartphones from $400 to $500” and began to be sold in April 2020 at a price of $470. Evaluation of the characteristics, probably, you have already folded, and if not, here is our result. Honor 30S 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.
