Huawei has a knack of making inexpensive mobile phones which, nevertheless, pack a technical punch. The Honor Holly is its latest bargain basement Android offering, intending to target a sub £100 price point while still boasting solid specifications.
When it goes on sale in the UK on the 23rd of February, the Honor Holly will be impressively powerful thanks to a 1.3GHz quad core CPU, coupled with a single gigabyte of RAM. An eight megapixel camera on the back is accompanied by a two megapixel front-facing camera for video calls and selfies.
Android KitKat is the operating system used by this device and it comes with a relatively modest amount of secondary customisation, which does not dilute the user experience too much.
Although Honor is technically separate from Huawei, the influences of its owner are apparent throughout the handset. The frame may be plasticy and not especially exciting, but does feel solidly built.
The biggest point in favour of the Honor Holly is its display, which measures five inches across the diagonal and has a 720p resolution. It is crisp, clear and very big for a phone of this price point, giving it the edge over the competition although the Motorola Moto G 4G phone is also a good future proof 4G choice around the £100 price point.
