Deal Alert: Honor’s cash back offer, so are they finally worth it?

honor smartphones price nepal
Lava International

The Honor brand came into Nepal with four smartphones, the Honor 7s, 7a, 8x and Play. These phones weren’t bad phones per-say but their Nepali pricing wasn’t exactly what we could justify. And there is one thing we know about Nepali buyers, it’s that they love a good value. Specs, cameras, and design are important factors in choosing a smartphone these days, people are more aware, and Honor didn’t exactly fit into the majority’s wish list.

The Honor 8x seems to be selling well and is also the only phone in their lineup to not receive a price drop. As for the rest, they are immensely overpriced. Considering phones like the Galaxy M10, Pocophone F1, and the Realme C1 entering the stage. So, let’s look at the price drop, and if they are finally worth checking out.

Honor 7s

So, for the newly formed price of Rs 13,990, this smartphone runs on the MT6739 SoC, which alone should make you not even consider it. International pricing aside, Nepal already has a few phones competing at this price point. The Samsung Galaxy M10, a much much better smartphone than this one, is priced at Rs 13,790. A short comparison will show the M10 boast more battery life, faster performance, bigger display, and an overall much better package. The choice is yours.

Honor 7a

Honor 7a follows the same story, with a Snapdragon 430, and a 3000mAh battery. The price of Rs 18,490 was just cuckoo for its specs and the discount does not help, at all. If you wanna spend over 15k on a phone, take a look at the Realme C1. It gets a bigger punchier display, is way faster, should double your battery life, and looks a lot better.

Honor Play

The Honor Play was a pretty hyped up phone, something to do with stellar performance and pricing. The phone was priced at around 16k in India a full 5k lesser than the Pocophone F1. This phone was supposed to sell like hotcakes on a rainy winter evening, and it did, just not in Nepal. Honor priced the device at an unprecedented 42 thousand rupees, that’s more than what the Pocofone costs in Nepal. Does that make sense to you?

So, in summary, all these phones are still overpriced, and aren’t exactly worth buying, maybe except for the Honor Play. Yes, it’s expensive but it performs and is at least worth considering. As for the other two, don’t even look at them. With much better options out there, why consider an inferior product? Honor is by no means an overpriced brand, and they make great, cheap smartphones. Sure, Honor Nepal has its fair share of justifiable reasons why, but it still doesn’t change the fact that their phones are just not worth buying.
