Android version and market relevance

In the short description of the new smartphone Honor 9S 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 9S 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 9S 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. The manufacturer could add support for fifth-generation networks to this smartphone, but did not. Perhaps not to raise the price, or for other reasons. If for you the presence of support for 5G networks in a new smartphone is very important, then we recommend that you go to this page in the catalog — all 5G smartphones on Android.

Screen, body and battery

IPS LCD touchscreen with a diagonal 5.45″ mounted on the front panel Honor 9S, thickness 8.4 mm.

The battery in Honor 9S is installed on 3 020 mAh. It can be said that by today′s standards, such a volume is the minimum acceptable, we recommend looking at other smartphones with a powerful battery.

Main camera and selfie camera

A selfie camera is located in front of the screen with one lens: 5 MP with a regular lens. Among all the cameras, this we attributed to the segment weak cameras. This model has a front camera as usual at the top of the screen, like 99.9% of all smartphones. But, if this makes you bored, then we can offer smartphones with pop-up front camera. In these models, the front camera is located inside the body and goes up only when you activate the front camera mode. It sounds interesting, but how convenient it is and how long this mechanism will work is not yet clear.

The main camera got one module: 8 MP Wide, located on the back of the body. We defined it in the segment very weak cameras at the moment. If you have a little more money, then we suggest adding and buying one of the camera phones, which we sorted separately in our catalog.

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 Helio P22. RAM 2 GB.

Built-in memory for storing different data (photo, video, applications, music, etc.) here 32 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 9S supports memory cards microSDXC. And this means that you can store all photos and videos with music on the memory card.

Price for Honor 9S: buy or not to buy?

The smartphone Honor 9S got into our price segment “Ultra cheap smartphones up to $100” and began to be sold in May 2020 at a price of $90. Evaluation of the characteristics, probably, you have already folded, and if not, here is our result. Honor 9S is a very smart smartphone with a large screen and a conventional main camera, and the front camera did not turn out super cool. And to all this we add that the battery here is absolutely normal.

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.
