Created date: 01/22/2021, 09:57:27, Updated date: 01/22/2021, 11:44:05

We've conducted a detailed review of the Honor View40, looking into its battery, how easy it is to use the camera, and whether the CPU performance is high or low. Not only that, but we've also evaluated how portable and easy to hold it is, as well as how nice the display is.

Features, Performance, and Reviews for the Honor View40

The camera function of Honor View40

The Honor View40 has an ultrahigh performance 50 MP main camera. This allows you to make high-quality photos and will rarely leave you wanting with regard to camera performance. This will make using your camera fun.

The Honor View40 is equipped with a rather powerful 16 MP front camera. The photos turn out quite well since they don't look grainy even when you print them out.

The battery performance of Honor View40

Honor View40's size

The Honor View40 is 2.9 inches (74.3 mm) wide, 6.4 inches (163.1 mm) tall, and 0.3 inches (8 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 View40, it weighs about 189 oz (189 g). It feels a little heavy when held with one hand. It may tire your hand out if you operate it for too long a time.

In giving an overall rating to the Honor View40, while it may be slightly difficult to hold, it shouldn't be much of a problem when considering its general strengths and weaknesses.

Honor View40's screen

The Honor View40 has a 6.72 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 screen of the Honor View40 is extremely clear, and it's able to display everything from images to videos and even video game graphics in perfect clarity.

The CPU performance of Honor View40

The Honor View40 has an extremely high processing power of 2.6GHz+2.0GHz×8(OctaCore), so it can smoothly run any app out there with ease. Its performance ranks among the top-class of all smartphones released to date. It's well suited to running even the most demanding of 3D games with ease.

The Honor View40 has a very high RAM capacity at 8GB. There are few cases where the RAM capacity would be insufficient, so it is also well suited to multitasking. It's unlikely to feel slow even when switching between several different apps.

The Honor View40 is an exceptional high-end smartphone. You will be fully content with its performance in all areas. It is a must-have for you if operation performance is important for you.

Honor View40's storage capacity

The Honor View40 has 256GB of data storage, which is perfect for people who frequently take photos and videos. It is suited to taking both photos and videos, and is unlikely to feel inconvenient even with lots of apps or games installed.

The Honor View40 is not compatible with SD cards, so make sure you check that there's enough storage for your needs.

Overall assessment of Honor View40

The Honor View40 is a high-performance smartphone. You're not likely to experience any inconvenience in general use.
