The mobile game industry is huge now. It has become the most lucrative segment of the game industry while the smartphone and tablet gaming growing 19% year over year to $46.1 billion, claiming 42% of the market.
And it is harder and harder to sell phones nowadays since most people already have a smartphone and they won’t buy a new one every year if there’s nothing special. That’s why brands are trying so hard to attract gamers. Asus has the ROG Phone, while Razer has the Razer Phone and Xiaomi has Black Shark.
The list can go on and on. However, most people won’t spend a fortune to buy a phone specially designed for gaming. As average consumers who love gaming, we want a powerful phone which is good enough to play games, taking photos and watching videos and it needs to be affordable.
With the standard above, let’s talk about one of the best phones for gaming in 2018: the Honor Play.
The Honor Play is the first one of Honor’s new smartphone series whose is designed to deliver the most advanced technology. The Honor Play has strong performance which you don't expect to get with only about ₹20k.
First of all, the Honor Play is powered by Huawei’s best chipset, the Kirin 970, making it the cheapest Honor Phone with Huawei's high-end processor. Plus, the Honor Play also comes with the latest OS, the EMUI 8.2 based on Android 8.1, ensuring the Honor Play’s smooth and stable performance.
What makes the Honor Play better than phones of same range is the GPU Turbo, the latest technology from Huawei. According to Honor, basically, the GPU Turbo is built on integrating the hardware and software to speed up graphics processing, enabling phones running smoothly.
It is kind of similar to Apple’s optimization since building the system and hardware by themselves give Apple ability to make everything better from the bottom of the system.
Comparing to other phones who do not have GPU Turbo, the Honor Play’s graphics processing efficiency can be 60% better and the SoC power consumption can be reduced by 30%. As a gamer, you can easily understand this is a huge improvement.
Besides the performance, the Honor Play has a 6.3-inch FullView display, a resolution of 2340 x 1080 and a small notch, which can show the color and details of games accurately. Honor also designs special vibration for the most popular games, for example, you can feel the different vibration when you shoot with pistol and sniper gun.
As for photography, the Honor Play comes with 16MP+2MP rear dual-camera and 16MP front camera. Just like Honor’s previous smartphones, the Honor Play’s built-in AI remarkably improves photo quality and the front selfie light helps selfie lovers take better selfie photos.
And Honor Play is an affordable phone. It has two version: 4GB RAM+64 GB ROM for RMB 1,999 ,while the 6GB RAM+64 GB ROM version for RMB 2,399. For now, Honor has not announced when they will launch the Honor Play in the international market.
