Short description Honor Play 30

This is a smartphone on Android 11 with a very fast and productive processor, with a huge touchscreen size, with a very good main camera, and the front camera here turned out to be absolutely ordinary. And Honor Play 30 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: VNE-AN00.

Android version and market relevance

Dual-smartphone Honor Play 30 introduced a company Honor in May 2022. It has Android version 11, which, unfortunately, it will not be possible to update, because the manufacturer did not take care of it. This new smartphone has also received support for high-speed 5G networks so that you can watch very high-quality 4K or even 8K videos on YouTube, play online games and not feel any inconvenience associated with the slow speed of mobile Internet.

Well, what can I say, Honor Play 30 is a smartphone of 2022 with fairly normal characteristics, which is located in our price segment “Affordable smartphones from $100 to $200”.

Screen, body and battery

Very capacious Honor Play 30 battery received a volume of 5 000 mAh. In this case, the smartphone has huge touchscreen TFT with diagonal 6.5″ and with refresh rate 90 Hz. As it is now fashionable in smartphone design, this model also received a drop-shaped cutout above the screen. And besides, the front panel is 80-90% occupied by the touchscreen.

The thickness of such a body with a screen from edge to edge is 8.7 mm. This is a very thick case, we advise you to look in our catalog smartphones with thin cases, which fit comfortably in your hand.

Main camera and selfie camera

The smartphone Honor Play 30 has two cameras: main camera (13 MP Wide) and front-camera (5 MP Wide). If you look at the quality of the photo of the main camera, then it will be medium-quality photos and videos.

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 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 Snapdragon 480+ 5G (8 nm). RAM 4 GB, but if you want, you can buy a version of this smartphone on 8 GB of RAM and, perhaps it will work faster.

Built-in memory for storing different data (photo, video, applications, music, etc.) here 128 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 Play 30 supports memory cards microSDXC. And this means that you can store all photos and videos with music on the memory card.

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

So we told about cheap powerful smartphone Honor Play 30 with a huge screen, very good main camera and weak frontal, and still there is a super-capacious battery.

All these characteristics in 2022 may be good, but the time goes by and the smartphone will somehow become obsolete in half a year of the beginning of sales. And by the way, to sell it start in May 2022 at a price of $150. This is the official price from the manufacturer without taxes and fees, so it can differ in each country, and not only for different sellers.

Before you buy Honor Play 30, be sure to check out all the photos and video reviews on it, or better still go to the offline store (electronics supermarket) and twist it in your hand. And already then, based on the emotions received from the smartphone, make the decision to buy.

And if Honor Play 30 is not already sold, when you are reading this text, then do not be upset. We advise you to always visit the page DROID smartphones, where we collect only the most current models on new versions of Android OS.
