Overview Honor Play4
Android version and market relevance
More detailed characteristics of this smartphone you can see below on the page, and in short we will describe the most important of them. So, firstly, there are no updates for this model the manufacturer does not release, so feel free to search for other smartphones in 2020 and choose from them. And, secondly, Honor Play4 has a slot for two SIM cards and supports their mutual work (all smartphones with 2 sim cards). And thirdly, Honor Play4 it works in the fifth generation (5G) networks, so you can work on a smartphone in the mobile Internet with the same high speed as at home on a Wi-Fi connection (up to 100 Mb/s). Next about the screen, the camera and the processor with memory.
Screen, body and battery
Good big 6.81-inch screen, made by technology IPS LCD installed in the smartphone Honor Play4.
The larger the screen, the larger the case. But in addition to the width and height of the hull, its thickness is important. At Honor Play4 the thickness of the case is 8.9 mm, which turns out to be very thick. Today, there are many smartphones with a slim body. In addition, the screen area in relation to the body area affects the positive feeling of the phone in the hands. This model has a screen area of 80% to 90% of the body area (watch all smartphones with a screen from edge to edge). And one more thing, the screen area is increased thanks to the upper cutout above it, while the body area remains unchanged. Honor Play4 received a cutout in the form of a small hole at the top of the screen for a selfie camera and multiple sensors. Check out detailed photos of this smartphone for a better understanding of how it looks in real life.
The battery and the operating time also depend on the screen size. At Honor Play4 installed battery for 4 300 mAh, and this is a fairly good reserve of capacity, which is exactly enough for you for one day with average usage.
Main camera and selfie camera
The main camera has several modules (smartphones with four cameras): 64 MP Wide + 8 MP UltraWide + 2 MP Macro + 2 MP Depth sensor and, as usual, it is located on the back of the smartphone. When a smartphone camera has multiple lenses, it allows zooming with high image quality. You can also take photos with the Bokeh effect. This is an effect where the background is blurred and the subject in the foreground stands out very nicely. It’s better to see it once than hear about it a hundred times, so look at examples of photos from this smartphone. The frontcamera at Honor Play4 has one module: 16 MP with a regular lens. And this, of course, is very good. Your selfies will look beautiful and high quality. 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.
Processor and Internal Memory
