Honor Holly review


Silly name, clever low-cost phone

Low cost ; Decent screen and power ; Good battery life ; Dual-SIM and microSD

Emotion UI not for everyone ; No LTE ; Lacklustre design

At the back end of 2014 Huawei announced plans for its new Honor brand. Huawei launched this new, young and hip line, promising devices that were "not afraid to do things differently". But several months later and the company has yet to show what it's...

Honor Holly (by Huawei) review


4G phone with a 5in HD screen for under £100

The Honor Holly price may drop below £99 but even if it doesn't, it's an affordable Android smartphone. It might not look stylish and have brick-like proportions but it does offer a large HD screen, dual-SIM slots, expandable storage and good battery...

Huawei Honor Holly Review: In Depth


We take a look at Huawei's latest Honor handset, the simple-yet-satisfying Honor Holly, whose price will be determined by the number of pre-orders.Huawei's Honor Holly is the third Honor handset we've…

Bright 720p screen ; Solid camera ; Stripped-back UI ; Dual-SIM

Uninspiring design ; Battery life average-ish

The Huawei Honor Holly does very little that previous Honors couldn't, especially given it packs almost identical specs to the Honor 3C. However, it's still a respectable affordable handset, boasting a crisp, clear screen, a solid all-round camera and...

Huawei Honor Holly review


The Honor Holly is the latest handset from the Huawei-backed, budget-conscious company, and it's also its cheapest. Set to retail for £110, you could actually end up grabbing the Holly for even less cash depending on how many fans register their...

The Honor Holly is a fairly typical 5-inch handset, but unlike the Honor 6 which gives you a lot more bang for your buck, the Holly is grounded strictly in budget territory. For starters, it's a completely plastic handset that’s firm, but unlike...

While its performance and screen are great, we're not completely sold on the Holly’s build quality. It feels especially cheap in the hand and it's so glossy it picks up fingerprints easily too. We're also not too fond of the capacitive buttons at the...

The Honor Holly is an impressive, speedy budget phone if you can get past its cheap build quality and iOS-styled Android OS. It won't blow you away though and its price isn't set in stone yet either, but if you want something that's cheaper than the...

Honor Holly review


Cheap phone impresses, but fails to stack up to the Moto G

The Honor Holly packs a quad-core 1.3GHz Mediatek MT6582 processor, backed up by 1GB of RAM.

Honor Holly review


The Honor Holly is an affordable smartphone, which for the price offers decent battery life and a good display. However, its performance is let down by poor software additions and the use of an old Android version.

Decent battery, affordable, reasonably good screen

Older Android version, can be buggy, dull design

Honor Holly Smartphone Review


Price-cutting HD. New smartphones for below 150 Euros (~$163) 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...

Very low price, Impeccable build, rigid, Removable battery, Dual SIM, RGB notification LED, FM radio, Little bloatware, Good call / hands-free voice quality, Very bright screen with decent contrast, Very good storage performance, Fast enough for...

Plastic casing, No LTE, no NFC, Second SIM functions only with GSM, Max. 32 GB micro SD cards only, Unsatisfactory GPS, Few sensors, No Emotion UI, OS barely differs from Vanilla Android, Few additional features, Very noisy camera, Soft touch buttons...

Not only the low price of Honor's Holly looked good in the test. It was not least the very bright and high-color IPS screen that, unlike the comparable rivals, even features an HD resolution that contributed to this. Although the casing does not really...
