Short description Honor Play 8A

This is a smartphone on Android 9 Pie 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 8A 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: JAT-L09, JAT-L29 (Global); JAT-AL00/JAT-TL00 (China).

Android version and market relevance

In the short description of the new smartphone Honor Play 8A 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 January 2019. 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 Play 8A works on Android 9 Pie 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 2019.

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 Play 8A 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

It is worth paying attention to good 6.09-inch capacitive IPS LCD touchscreen smartphone Honor Play 8A. A real shoveler, which is great for watching videos, surfing the Internet and full-screen games. You will be very surprised at how much information is placed on one screen. But, unfortunately, with one hand you will not be comfortable with using a smartphone. And drop-like notch above the screen adds recognition to the smartphone and increases the screen area, but does not increase the physical size. The thickness of the case is 8 mm. This also accommodated a battery capacity of 3 020 mAh.

Main camera and selfie camera

A regular 13 MP with a regular lens camera located on the back of the smartphone. And on the front of the smartphone we see a camera with one lens: 8 MP with a regular lens. Today this is a weak camera. If you are looking for a good camera phone to take pictures of yourself, then be sure to look selfie smartphones in our catalog.

Processor and Internal Memory

Brilliant multi-core processor Helio P35 installed in Honor Play 8A. 3 GB of RAM will help make the interface work smoother. There is also built-in memory in the smartphone, which stores photos, videos, music and all your other data. The amount of this built-in memory is 32/64 GB. Memory cards you can also use, in this model are supported microSDXC-cards.

Price for Honor Play 8A: buy or not to buy?

The choice to make is not difficult — to buy or not to buy — we will help you to solve it right now. New smartphone Honor Play 8A we took and carried out segmentation for the quality of the camera, screen size, battery capacity and processor performance. So, if you want to buy a smartphone with a huge screen, then this model perfectly suits you. If you want to receive good quality photos, you can safely take this smartphone and do not overpay for top models. And, finally, on the performance of the processor, this model is very powerful with a good battery here.

Having dealt with the average characteristics, it remains to understand whether it is worth all the declared price of $100 (without taxes and fees). Here everyone makes a choice for himself and evaluates all the pros and cons.

If something you did not fit this smartphone for purchase, then look in our catalog for a selection DROID smartphones. These are models that are now on sale, and that work under the new version of Android OS.
