What does mobility look like?
The issue of mobility is important when it comes to a smartphone. You will use it to make phone calls, but also to surf and search for information on the internet.
Play 9A 64 GB’s really small.Indeed, with its 6.3 inches, it is one of the smallest models currently available on the market.
A size that does not invite fluid use on the internet.Even less good for watching a movie.It’s a model made for telephoning, mainly.
Also note that wifi will be available to accompany you.This means that the connection will be easier during your internet browsing.This smartphone has GPS.You know where you stand.Unless you’re at the bottom of a cave, you’ll be able to know where you are at any given moment.

We found out that this Play 9A 64 GB doesn’t have reinforced glass.In other words, the scratches or the shocks that happen to us all, will inevitably appear.It is a good idea to purchase an adaptable screen protector as a complement.In terms of autonomy, this phone is in the top of the battery ranking with an on-board power of 5000 mAH.Convenient when you’re travelling or simply away from the office.
And since Honor did not consider it useful to put a fast charge on this model, we will have to wait.Too bad, it’s a very interesting feature today.
The right model for multimedia use?
The use of the telephone now exceeds that of television.It’s a device that is always at hand.You can also simply listen to music.Because of the power of smartphones and their connectivity, you can watch whatever you want.But not all phones are suitable for this purpose.
This is not a model designed for multimedia.He’s not doing as well as most of his competitors.It’s hard to watch a video.The resolution is low: 720 x 1600.At the limit, it will be suitable for listening to music.
The screen of this model has been switched to LCD IPS (In-Plane Switching).The visual result is very good no matter from what angle you look at the screen.
Honor sought to improve the audio experience.A 3.5mm input to connect your headphones or speakers.
Bluetooth technology will allow you to listen to music with connected devices.The sound result is of a good level.
And finally, for the sound, we were surprised not to find the stereo.
Is it suitable for games?
Games are performance consuming.This implies that the batteries must be able to keep up.For smooth and responsive rendering on 3D video games, it is necessary to combine a good processor with a good graphics processor.In other words, the power of the technical components is essential to enjoy the game phases.
Our tests put this Play 9A 64 GB at the bottom of the list in terms of power.The Mediatek MT6765 Helio P35 (12nm) processor is weak and the graphics processing unit of a lower quality than we would have liked.The visual result is below other smartphones in this category.
We’re at the standard level in terms of RAM.That’s 64 GB available.And because Honor predicted that some of you would be demanding gamers, you have the ability to expand the available memory.
Please note that during intensive play, the battery is put to the test.This model has one of the most durable batteries.It has a 5000 mAh battery.With a nice design, it’s a smartphone that you like to hold in your hands.
It will be necessary to limit the applications installed on this smartphone.Reading comfort where the display is not up to scratch.This is an entry-level model: 278* pixels per inch.Even if it remains legible, the clarity of the image and the display are below the competition.
Finally, and regrettably, this model does not allow for contactless payments.
For audio or video use?
The quality of smartphones allows you to take pictures as well as many cameras.For a long time, manufacturers have been communicating about the millions of pixels their devices were equipped with.The ability to stabilize at the time of shooting or the Burst mode are also important points.Being able to share photos taken with one click is also important.Honor has a long history of designing quality products.
Little progress has been made by Honor.This model thus has only one objective.
With its photo resolution of 13 Mp, this Play 9A 64 GB is an interesting choice compared to other equivalent models.You will find the brightness and colours of your holiday images at your fingertips.This phone provides 64 GB of usable space.This space will be correct to store your image and sound files.And with this amount available, you’ll have time to sort out what you don’t want to keep and what you need to transfer to your computer or to the cloud.
