Honor Smartphones Receive Larger Discounts Than Ever Before

xiaomi-smartphone-offers

Many of you may know that Honor released four new smartphones in Nepal this year. Recently, they also added a new smartphone, Honor 10 Lite, to their portfolio. All of the Honor smartphones offer good value but Honor received a backlash for selling these phones at a slightly higher price in Nepal than in the international market.

Honor did address this problem by offering some temporary cashback on 4 of their phones but Honor has now completely re-priced its phones. And these prices are lower than ever before. Check the price drop of these smartphones along with our insights about each of them below!

Honor 7s

Honor 7s is a normal budget smartphone for 2019. It comes with the 18:9 aspect ratio display, a metallic body, and standard budget level specs. There’s 2GB RAM and 16GB internal storage inside. The internal storage is, thankfully, expandable; the 16GB internal storage will fill up in no time.I am a little concerned with the MT6739 processor that is used in this phone. This processor was launched in 2017 and it uses a 28nm architecture. That’s a bit dated. However, it may not be that big of a deal for a budget smartphone. Any smartphone is good at calling, texting, and browsing the internet lightly nowadays. If that’s what you’re after, Honor 7s will probably serve you right.

Honor 7A

Honor 7A is a slightly more luxurious phone than the Honor 7s. It has a larger screen, a more powerful (still old) processor. The 2GB RAM and 16GB internal storage are typical of this price range.

There is a fingerprint sensor here that was missing from the Honor 7s. Also, now you get a dual camera setup at the back. But how useful the second camera will be remains to be seen (probably not much). Overall, Honor 7A is a pretty feature packed when it comes to phones under 20K.

Honor 7A Key Specifications

  • Display: 5.7 IPS LCD 720 x 1440 pixels, 18:9 ratio (~282 ppi density)

Honor 8X

Now, this is a real competitor to the phones like the Huawei Nova 3i and the Xiaomi Mi A2. With Honor 8X, you get a big beautif6.5-inch screen that stretches nearly from edge to edge. There’s a very competent midrange processor inside the Honor 8X. And boy is the RAM and the storage spacious. Not only that, their camera is very competent for the price too. And the battery life is just wonderful. Honor uses Huawei’s magic sauce when it comes to battery management and it shows. Also, I personally think the design of this phone is better than that of the Nova 3i. If you are in the market for a new smartphone that costs around 30K, Honor 8X should be at the top of your list.

Honor 8X Key Specifications

    • Display: 6.5 inches LTPS LCD 1080 x 2340 pixels, 19.5:9 ratio (~397 ppi density)
    • SoC: Hisilicon Kirin 710 (12 nm)

Honor Play

Honor Play is a special phone. It is like the Pocphone but with better design and build. Honor Play comes with a flagship processor from Huawei (Honor’s parent brand) that was the same processor used in the Huawei P20 pro and the Nova 3. There are 4GB RAM and 64GB internal storage here that is more than fine for anything you may want to do on an android phone at this time. Judging from the 8X, Honor Play’s camera might be good too. But you can always look at the plethora of YouTube reviews for this phone to get a clearer picture. If you want a powerful phone but think the Pocophone doesn’t satiate your need for glitz and glamor, go for the Honor Play.

Honor Play Key Specifications

  • Display: 6.3 inches LTPS LCD 1080 x 2340 pixels, 19.5:9 ratio (~409 ppi density)
  • SoC: Hisilicon Kirin 970 (10 nm)
  • CPU: Octa-core (4×2.4 GHz Cortex-A73 & 4×1.8 GHz Cortex-A53)
  • GPU: Mali-G72 MP12
  • Memory: 64 GB, 4 GB RAM (storage expandable up to 400 GB using micro SD card)
  • OS: Android Oreo 8.1 with EMUI 8.2
  • Rear Camera: Dual 16 MP, f/2.2, PDAF; 2 MP, f/2.4, depth sensor
  • Front Camera: 16 MP, f/2.0, 1.0µm
  • Battery: Non-removable Li-Po 3750 mAh battery
  • Sensors: Fingerprint (rear-mounted), accelerometer, gyro, proximity, compass
Original Price New Discounted Price
Rs. 42490 Rs. 35790

These are all some significant discounts. I like that now you can buy the Honor 8X under 30K. That is a great value. I also like the new price of the Honor Play. This brings the price of the phone near to the price of the Pocophone F1 that many people compare it too. This price, combined with the better design and build quality of the Honor Play should lure most customers to buy this phone.

If you were in the market for Pocophone but you can’t find any right now, you should absolutely give a shot to the Honor Play. You won’t be disappointed. I will even suggest considering buying the Honor Play over the Pocophone.
