Overview Honor Play5 Youth
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 2021 and choose from them. And, secondly, Honor Play5 Youth has a slot for two SIM cards and supports their mutual work (all smartphones with 2 sim cards). And thirdly, Honor Play5 Youth 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
In the case Honor Play5 Youth thickness 8.5 mm is placed battery for 4 300 mAh and a very large IPS LCD touchscreen with a diagonal 6.67″ and refresh rate 120 Hz. As you can see in the official photos, the body has a neat little cutout in the screen that houses the selfie camera. Thus, the manufacturer decided to increase the screen area without increasing the physical size of the smartphone body. The screen is very close to the edges of the case, which also improves the ergonomics of using the phone with one hand. This model could become a flip smartphone and get into our catalog on a separate page, where all phones with flexible screens are collected. Unfortunately, this did not happen. And therefore, if you are interested in smartphones with such top-end characteristics, we advise you to look at them in our catalog and get a deeper understanding in which direction the entire mobile electronics industry is moving. Perhaps, in a couple of years, every second person on the planet will have such flip smartphones.
Main camera and selfie camera
The smartphone Honor Play5 Youth has two cameras: main camera (64 MP Wide + 2 MP Depth sensor) and front-camera (16 MP Wide). If you look at the quality of the photo of the main camera, then these are very good photos with high quality and detail. Look at the example of photos and videos taken on this smartphone.
In addition, the main camera has a feature, namely an additional module. It is better to judge about the advantages and disadvantages of several lenses in one smartphone, as well as about the possibilities of software image enhancement, by real photos and videos taken with such a camera. Therefore, be sure to look at all the photos of the Honor Play5 Youth on this page in order to draw your conclusion on whether this is a good camera or not.
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
