Reviews for the Honor Play 30 Plus

Honor Play 30 Plus Review
Source: OI Spice Tech News English
The Honor Play 30 Plus smartphone can be a good deal if you look for a bigger battery and stable performance. You will get fast charging support in the mid-range specs along with the 5G connectivity. This phone renders a decent display refresh rate but the only concern here is the average camera, google play support, and some bloatware applications, that might be expected under the Magic UI user interface. If this phone meets your requirements, then only you are advised to go with this 5G smartphone however the final decision is up to you. The overall package is decent from Huawei except for the camera department. You can check out the Lava Agni 5G and Xiaomi Poco M4 Pro smartphones which are alternative suggestions to Honor Play 30 Plus for a better deal.

Honor Play 30 Plus Review: Large 5000mAh Battery, 5G Dual-Standby
Source: Igeekphone English
In general, although taking pictures is not a highlight, you can use it to record the beauty around you at any time. After experiencing it, the Honor Play 30 Plus has greatly subverted my impression of the thousand yuan 5G entry machine. Especially this battery life makes me amazed. 5000mAh battery capacity is not uncommon, but on the Honor Play 30 Plus, with Honor’s smart power-saving technology, it has achieved record results, more than double the average mobile phone. The battery life is really worthy of the name. What’s more, it also has a 22.5W fast charge to escort the large battery, which greatly shortens the charging time and does not have to wait too long. The rest, such as appearance design and color matching, high-brush full-screen display, and memory expansion, are also good plus points. At the entry-level gear of 1,000 yuan 5G, it can greatly improve the user experience and make the phone run more smoothly. How about it? Does such a wonderful machine with battery life impress you?

Honor Play 30 Plus Specifications, Pros and Cons
Source: OI Spice Tech News English
The Honor Play 30 Plus smartphone was released in December 2021 at a price of $190 (Rs 14,999 in India) approx. Because it’s a budget 5G device, the company cut corners to maintain that price. For starters, the device arrives with a 6.74-inch IPS LCD panel with a 90Hz refresh rate, which offers HD+ resolution. However, there is no information on the protection of gorilla glass. In terms of design, the phone looks elegant, while Android 11 OS supported by Magic UI 5.0 layers support decent customization. But, as usual, Google’s ecosystem support wouldn’t be there. On the other hand, the phone offers a 7nm – MediaTek MT6833 Dimensity 700 5G chipset that renders 5G support but didn’t feature NFC related stuff. The camera end grants a 13MP primary camera that clubs along with a 2MP depth lens, while a 5MP selfie camera couples up on the screen. In terms of the battery section, the Honor Play 30 Plus equips a 5000 mAh battery that also introduces a 22.5W fast charging support. There are color variants of Black, Blue, Silver, and Gold from which you can pick anyone you like.

Only a few smartphones have larger screens.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

Only few smartphones are more lightweight than this.


Honor:

In 2014 Huawei created the sub brand Honor and offers certain smartphone series under this name. Occasionally the products are also called Huawei Honor.

The market share of Honor products is manageable, but there are several reviews on Honor smartphones with average ratings (as of 2016).
