its a good phone but..
By rohit nair | 15 Jan 2019
got update to android 9 and emui 9, but the camera is poor.camera always give you overdecorated photos only and its terrible in low lighting. i personally feel like its a gaming phone,so concentrate on gaming only, rest is just average.and ya the display glass and camera cover is easily scratchable, sound quality from this is average eventhough am using a jbl earphone. pros: amazing good fast charging. good gaming experience no lags or slowdown anywhere. lots of customization no heating issues jus lil. slippery on hand very premium feel on hand. ONE MONTH HONOR PLAY USER(HONEST REVIEW)
