When the old woman arrived in Italy Honor immediately won us over for the quality of its products and the excellent price at which they were offered. Today the name is the same but the company is all new and after Honor 50 here is this version Quarrel with excellent autonomy but lacking in really exciting features. Will the price be his best weapon?

Packaging and content
In packaging, we find a well-made transparent silicone cover, the 66W power supply and the USB-A to USB-C cable.
Design and touch-and-feel materials
Frame and back cover are both in plastic but it is a good plastic, sturdy and that does not retain fingerprints. The quad-camera design is also nice. Not being equipped with AMOLED, the fingerprint sensor is placed on the side and I found it reliable.
The display is a 6.67 “IPS LCD with FHD + resolution of 391PPI and 60Hz refresh. We are now so used to OLEDs that not absolute blacks and less extreme viewing angles are noticed but other than that it is still a good LCD.
Processor and memory
The processor is the Snapdragon 665 with Adreno 610 GPU flanked by 8GB of RAM and 128GB of non-expandable internal memory.
Their battery is 4300mAh compatible with fast charging at 66W (40% in 10 minutes) but not with wireless charging. Excellent autonomy, in my stressful day I arrived in the evening with still 25/30% of residual charge.
Software and ecosystem
Android 11 with the patches updated in October and since it is Honor there are also Google services here as on Honor 50. One thing I don’t like about this interface is the lack of the swipe down to lower the notification curtain.
Photo and video
The room section is equipped with: ♦ one room principal from 64MP f / 1.9, ♦ one camera wide angle from 8MP f / 2.4 with a viewing angle of 120 °, ♦ two sensors from 8MP for macro and depth data, ♦ camera front from 16MP f / 2.0. Shooting is not very fast but still, the results are not bad, even the macro and low light shots are quite good. The zoom I would say ok up to 2x then grains a little too much. The front chamber, on the other hand, did not convince me very much. In general, however, the photos are medium/base range without infamy and without praise.
Apps and gaming
Their speed’s good. Certainly not lightning fast but not very slow either. It’s when we start asking him for more that he starts to lag a bit but still remains reliable.
Real Racing does not open in record time, 20 seconds.
The launch is on offer on the site Hi Honor to € 299 and you also get Band 6 for free (worth € 49). Its price, in my opinion, is just € 249 while the € 299, in my opinion, is too much. A phone therefore that does not excite too much except for the fact that Honor is finally back as a new company and that we hope will be able to keep prices low enough to maintain the value for money that was able to conquer Italy in the past. !
