Been using Honor play for 3 years now.. Ita a beast of a phone and is very durable.
The processor is top end and display is very good.
Wish the camera had been better..
Its still a valye for money buy in 2021. And its a good phone for the gamers
I still use this device & still satisfied me through 2 years & I played Genshin Impact at 30 fps still better and low setting with shadow on low, motionblur low still optimize in this device but just a 2 second stutter, maybe because of throttle (recommended use the BlackShark FunCooler Pro) with cooler everything runs well. PUBGM v1.0 still work with GPU Turbo v3.0 whether this device is never updated to the new emui 10.
I like this phone, it's cheap but the build quality is premium. This is one of the most durable phones I've ever had and is really fast considering the price point.
Best phone ever it is most secured phone in android so far I saw. Performance is amazing.
1 year and 3 month old play user and I'm not pleased. This phone ages quicker than expected and I feel that GPU is not the only thing that they lie about. Despite using a kirin 970, it certainly do not felt like I'm using a device with that high end processor. This feels like a device that made for benchmark, not for practical use.
lol, 01 Jan 2020honor play in 2020?? Cheap, great performance, excellent battery life, good for smaller hands and tuff well built. Get 1 for Â£100 or less and be very pleased. (bought 1 at Â£85 bargain for the missus, Â£100 cheapest seen since, Â£130 current going rate). Won't get Android 10 update but trust me, is no big whoop. Kirin 970 performs great in games whilst being good to the battery. Honor 10 has same 970, but sells for more...

I have had the phone for about 2 months so it might not have slowed down as much. Also games like Fortnite easily run 30 FPS in normal mode so performance is fine.

Performance is excellent, Gameplay is superb, yes it gets a little hot but nothing out of ordinary, Fully Satisfied.
Only concern is I don't like App Icons they need to be changed and hopefully not in IOS lookalike way.

Honor Play has very bad Screen view outdoor, as nothing is visible outdoor, the brightness of the screen is nothing like other phones with the same price range.
indoor screen viewing is ok, but other features are good and appreciated.
Anonymous, 29 Oct 2018I bought this phone recently and I'm totally dissatisfied by it's camera & EMIUI's screen ... moreNone of those issues on my Honor Play and camera is tack sharp
Over heating while charging, no back ground apps running check everything but i dont know why, normally heats when we use for more tbats fine but even mobile was on complete idle and put on charging heating too much..
Please fix it.

I updated my honor play to Android 9 emui 9. What happened to the Antutu benchmark and Geekbench scores? I was shocked. Antutu went down to around 150k from 200k, less in geekbench too. Anyone know the reason? Anyhow I don't feel any lag or slowdown... Performance and battery life are very good.
