Android version and market relevance

Dual-smartphone Honor Play 9A introduced a company Honor in March 2020. It has Android version 10, which, unfortunately, it will not be possible to update, because the manufacturer did not take care of it.

Well, what can I say, Honor Play 9A is a smartphone of 2020 with fairly normal characteristics, which is located in our price segment “Affordable smartphones from $100 to $200”.

Screen, body and battery

The most important thing you need to know about the case and form factor Honor Play 9A. The body is quite compact and the screen occupies almost all of its area from edge to edge (from 80% to 90% of the area of the case). There is a cutout above the screen to take up even more space on the front of the case. As you have seen in the photo, here is a drop-like cutout for a selfie camera. On the front side of the case is located huge IPS LCD-screen with diagonal 6.3″. At the same time, a battery with a capacity of 5 000 mAh.

Main camera and selfie camera

A few words about the cameras that have Honor Play 9A. The main camera, located on the back, received several modules (dual camera smartphones): 13 MP Wide + 2 MP Depth sensor. And by the way, the camera’s multiple lenses are an interesting feature. What does it give you? Additional modules also take a picture during the «shutter release». And then the smartphone, using special algorithms, processes images from all cameras to optimize and improve the final photo. And with several cameras, you can shoot more interesting photos, for example, with the bokeh effect (this is when the subject in the foreground is in focus, and the background is blurred). The main camera we would rate her 4 out of 5.

The frontcamera is also in Honor Play 9A. It is located in front of the screen and has one module: 8 MP Wide. These characteristics for qualitative selfies it will be not enough, therefore we advise to look others selfie smartphones in our catalog. This model does not really stand out in terms of body design (in the context of the front camera). Therefore, I would like to tell you that there are smartphones with pop-up front camera. How it works? The front camera is located inside the body and slides up only when you activate the front camera mode. You take a selfie photo or video, exit the «Camera» application and the camera panel begins to slide down into the body. Everything is simple and interesting enough.

Processor and Internal Memory

Brilliant multi-core processor Helio P35 installed in Honor Play 9A. 4 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 64/128 GB. Memory cards you can also use, in this model are supported microSDXC-cards.

Price for Honor Play 9A: buy or not to buy?

Price Honor Play 9A at the start of sales was $120. A smartphone with this price level got into the price segment “Affordable smartphones from $100 to $200” and got a very powerful processor, a huge touch screen, and the front camera is not too cool with a decent main camera.

If you want to buy Honor Play 9A, you can choose any online store or offline electronics store, the main thing is to have a guarantee for the smartphone and the desired version of the model you have chosen.

Before buying, if you have the opportunity, it is better to hold the phone in your hands, check the screen, the quality of the photo and video, look at the smoothness and speed of the interface. Never buy a “cat in a bag”, be sure to check everything before buying. Today, good smartphones are worth a lot of money, so it′s better to spend an extra ten minutes to eventually buy the model that will work well one or two years and help you in everything.
