Honor Holly Smartphone Review

79% Honor Holly Smartphone Review

Price cutting HD. New smartphones for below 150 Euro are no longer inevitably found in scrap corners. Honor presents a 5-inch handset with an HD IPS screen that would also fit well in the mid-range. The fact that it is only powered by an entry-level SoC with little RAM in routine use barely had an impact in routine use.
