Features, Performance, and Reviews for the Honor Play 3e

The CPU performance of Honor Play 3e

The 2.0GHz+1.5GHz×8.0() processing speed of the Honor Play 3e is on the higher side, so it should be able to run most apps with no problems. The performance of this phone is at a high level when compared to others released on the market so far. You can play a comparatively large amount of 3D games with next to no issues.

The Honor Play 3e has 3GB of RAM, so it has plenty of space. In rare cases this amount of RAM might not be sufficient, but there shouldn't be too much stress on the machine with this amount.

The Honor Play 3e has the overall operating speed of a high-end smartphone, so it will hardly ever cause you trouble. But you might need to be careful when using heavy apps like 3D games a lot.

Honor Play 3e's storage capacity

The Honor Play 3e has 64GB of data storage, which is plenty for taking photos, but for people who frequently shoot videos or have lots of games installed, this may not feel like enough space.

Since the Honor Play 3e is compatible with SD cards, you'll be able to easily expand your storage capacity; you won't need to worry about how much internal space it has.

Honor Play 3e's size

The Honor Play 3e is 27.9 in (70.8 mm) wide, 57.9 in (147.1 mm) tall, and 3.3 in (8.5 mm) thick.I can just barely use it with one hand, so it may feel big to some people.In the case of the Honor Play 3e, it weighs about 5.2 oz (146 g).The weight is such that it's hardly noticeable even when using one-handed. However, some people may find it tiring to use for long periods.

In giving an overall rating to the Honor Play 3e, while it may be slightly difficult to hold, it shouldn't be much of a problem when considering its general strengths and weaknesses.

Honor Play 3e's screen

The Honor Play 3e has a 5.71 inch screen.The smartphone has a large, impressive screen, which allows you to enjoy photos and videos to the fullest. It is also very good for writing business documents and doing other work.

The resolution of the Honor Play 3e's screen is pretty much standard. It shouldn't be a problem for normal use, but it might prove to be a bit dissatisfying for those who wish to better enjoy their photos, videos, or games.

The camera function of Honor Play 3e

The Honor Play 3e has a 13 MP main camera that lets you take photos and videos in a quite high resolution. You may be a little dissatisfied with it in some situations, for example when you want to capture scenery in very high resolution or print out beautiful photos, but this should not be an issue you run into very often.

The Honor Play 3e comes with a 5 MP pixel camera, which is a standard level. It's perfectly fine for selfies, but may be not as satisfying if you wish to take photos of large numbers of people, or make printouts.

The battery performance of Honor Play 3e

The Honor Play 3e has a relatively large battery with 3020.0mAh.The Honor Play 3e has a good battery life compared to other smartphones. You won't feel stressed even if you spend all day surfing the web or on Twitter and you can also watch videos or play games on the go without having to worry too much about the battery. If you watch videos or play games for too long, however, you might want to watch your battery a bit.

Overall assessment of Honor Play 3e

The Honor Play 3e is a high-performance smartphone. You're not likely to experience any inconvenience in general use.
