Honor Play 8A, or simply Honor 8A, is a budget-oriented device by Honor. It is basically targeted towards first-time users who are looking for a good looking phone with better entertainment options. But since the Honor 9A is already on works should you pay the price for Honor 8A?

Honor 8A Overview:

Going by the specs, the Honor Play 8A is a typical budget phone. It comes with a plastic back and the rear panel houses a single camera. The rear camera on this device comes with 13MP resolution. On the front lies an 8MP selfie shooter, which dwells on the small cutout in the display. And talking about the display here, the phone enjoys a 6.09-inch IPS screen, which comes with HD+ resolution.

The phone is powered by Helio P35 chipset with 2GB of RAM at its disposal. On the storage side, there is 32GB of onboard memory. The phone also has a dedicated SD card slot for easy expansion of the system memory.

When it comes to the software, the phone boots on Android Pie (v9.0) out of the box with EMUI 9 on the top. The battery on this device has a 3020mAh battery, which should provide a decent backup for the internals used.

Considering it as a budget phone, the Honor Play 8A packs decent internals for on most of the aspects. However, the phone conspicuously lacks a fingerprint scanner. Since most of the budget smartphones these days come with fingerprint scanners, the absence of that feature here is an absolute bummer. Nonetheless, you can use the in-built face unlock feature to unlock the device.
