Best Honor Phones Of 2018

Best Honor Phones Of 2018
Honor is making a great name for itself in the global smartphone market. Owned by Huawei, it’s a separate brand that often takes the exact same specs of a Huawei phone, repackages it, and sells it cheaper.

Turns out, that’s a great thing for you the consumer.

We tend to ignore Honor’s youth-focussed branding, as these often affordable smartphones are great for everyone (particularly if you like the colour blue, though other colours are available).

They often have dual cameras, attractive designs and AI software features that Huawei phones have for often hundred of pounds or dollars more.

Honor smartphones range from the premium to the extremely affordable - but debatably the former can stray into the latter. This is what makes the large range slightly confusing sometimes.

Here is our rundown of our favourite Honor phones currently on sale to help you pick which is best for you.

The Best Honor Phones Of 2018

1. Honor 10
Even though battery life is a little underwhelming, it’s a minor quibble with what is an exceptionally good phone for the price. The display, cameras and build quality are verging on those of a phone twice the price and the performance is the best we’ve seen on an Honor phone. 

The software is the best EMUI has ever offered, and the notch is not a big deal when all is said and done. The 128GB storage as standard is also a major plus, and dual SIM is also welcome. Add to that a headphone jack, and the Honor 10 could well be the best featured mid-range phone ever – it’s certainly the best you can buy in 2018.

Read our Honor 10 review.

2. Honor View 10
The Honor View 10 is another flagship device from a company that promises a lot with high specs and low prices. The phone is much more similar in look and feel to the Honor 8 Pro than the recent Honor 9, and loses the attractive glass back in favour of AI software perks and Android Oreo. 

At £449 you could opt for the same-price OnePlus 5T which has more attractive software design, but it could turn out that the Honor View 10 is an intelligent choice with Android Oreo out the box thanks to promising, if unrefined, AI features and strong dual cameras.

3. Honor 9 Lite
The Honor 9 Lite might not have all the mod cons but it's one of the cheapest phones around to offer an 18:9 screen with a bezel-free design. It's an attractive phone and general specs are good, including no less than four cameras. It doesn't have flawless performance but there's little to complain about at under £200 making it the best budget phone around.


4. Honor 9
The Honor 9 is an undeniably impressive phone and although the Honor 10 is out, you can still buy it even cheaper direct from Honor

In performance terms, it's nipping at the heels of the year's top flagships, and only lacking flashy features like waterproofing or a bezel-less screen. It looks great, it runs fast, and it costs less than £300 now.

5. Honor 7X
  • RRP: $199.99
Honor does pretty much everything right with the 7X. It looks like a much more expensive phone than it is, has a headphone jack and offers a choice of dual-SIM or expandable memory.

The 18:9 screen is great to use, and most apps work ok when forced to fill it. Battery life is good and cameras are acceptable, but not excellent.

The bottom line is that Honor has put together a decent phone that gives you an 18:9 screen which looks like a flagship for far less than flagship prices. 

6. Honor 8 Pro
  • RRP: £474.99
The Honor 8 Pro is a solid device. It represents the brand moving even closer in look and price to big bro Huawei, but it is a decent option.

Without contract options in the UK at this time, you’ll have to plump for SIM free, and at just under £500 you might be tempted to look at the Honor View 10 instead which has better specs and Android Oreo.

7. Honor 6X
The Honor 6X manages to be a budget phone but not remotely feel like one. This is high praise, and while it could never hold a candle to the performance of phones three times the price, that’s not the point – the Android experience you get is still nigh-on top drawer.

As long as you can get on with Huawei’s still-not-there EMUI skin, the Honor 6X is one of the best, most affordable mid-range Android handsets going – and it’s easy to pick one up in the UK.

8. Honor 8
  • RRP: $399
The Honor 8 is a fantastic smartphone, despite coming out in 2016. You get a fantastic dual-camera, a sleek and stylish design, a faster fingerprint sensor and a beautiful display, which combined make the Honor 8 a worthy phone in the Honor range.

Vorwerk Kobold VR300 Review

At nearly £1000, does the VR300 offer enough to justify the purchase when you can pick up a robot vac for £100s less? Find out in our Vorwerk Kobold VR300 review
Should I Buy The Vorwerk Kobold VR300?
It’s expensive, but the Kobold VR300 provides an impressive vacuuming experience that we think could rival that of a conventional vacuum cleaner, but it’s not as smart as some rivals – yet. The low-profile design, upgraded SLAM technology and D-shape design allow the VR300 to safely navigate around obstacles and reach every last nook and cranny.

Asus ZenBook 14 (UX433) Review

Asus has revamped the ZenBook line with a whole new design, including a lighter build, redesigned hinge, and a light-up numpad built right into the touch pad
Should I Buy The Asus ZenBook 14 UX433?
The ZenBook 14 is a very promising shakeup to the Asus laptop line. It’s smaller, lighter, and better looking than any of the previous models, without having to sacrifice either ports or powers. There aren't many laptops around that can offer you a 14in display in a body this compact while still giving you USB-A and HDMI ports, not to mention a Core i7 processor.
Unless you're an Excel addict you can probably safely ignore the glowing numpad - it's a fun gimmick, but most of us will probably forget it's even there, and without tactile feedback it's hardly a proper replacement for the keys. Still, this is a strong enough laptop elsewhere that it doesn't need that gimmick to get by, and there's plenty to recommend it otherwise.

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse Movie Review

Nth Time's a Charm

If you groaned at the thought of another "Spider-Man" movie, fear not because you weren't alone. How many times can one character be rebooted or reimagined before it becomes insufferable? Apparently we aren't there yet, because "Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse" is a welcome breath of fresh air.
Everyone's history with the movies about our favorite neighborhood webslinger differs. Sam Raimi's trilogy has its diehard fans (despite only producing one truly great film) and the Andrew Garfield-led "The Amazing Spider-Man" movies were cut short when they didn't meet expectations (the first one is good!). Last year, Jon Watts' "Spider-Man: Homecoming" found Tom Holland in the title role, providing a fun, well-rounded look at the character, which had been missing for a while.
