And preferably before buying the phone hold in your hand, to feel the dimensions of his hand and look at all of its external signs (build quality and materials). Then turn it on and check the touch screen (there should be no “broken” pixels, color gradient), open several built-in applications to assess the speed and smoothness of the interface.

Does anyone know why, in mid-2021, Honor (a subsidiary of Huawei) continues to announce new smartphones based on Android 10, and not on the 11th version?

This is, of course, a joke, so let’s take a closer look at the characteristics of this new product.

We picked up these models at a similar price.
