This mid-range Honor 70 is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G processor with 8 GB of RAM and a choice of 128 GB or 256 GB of storage. The screen is a 6.67-inch OLED with a 120Hz refresh rate, HDR10+ certification, and 1920Hz Pulse Width Modulation (PWM), which Honor claims makes the screen more pleasing with less flickering. A 4,800 mAh battery provides energy and charges with the included 66 watt charger.
It doesn’t use facial recognition, instead focusing on human movement to capture the subject, and is smart enough to refocus when the person moves in or out of the frame. Both the main image and the solo cut window are recorded at 1080p at 30 frames per second (fps). This is an unusual feature and may only be useful in very specific situations. Other camera features include a night portrait mode with bokeh effect and a 32-megapixel in-screen selfie camera.
Honor speaks to the camera on the back of the Honor 70. It uses the same “dual ring” design as the Huawei P50 Pro and OnePlus Nord 2T, and uses the Sony IMX800 54-megapixel camera for the first time. Add to this a 50 MP wide-angle camera and a 2 MP macro camera. Using Honor’s Image Engine, the phone has a video feature called Solo Cut. Using AI, he focuses on one person when shooting a video and places it in a small picture-in-picture window in the finished footage.
Honor block 8
The Honor 70 bears no family resemblance to the Magic4 Pro. It’s attractive, but it’s a pretty standard design. The frosted glass back looks nice and cool, but the dual camera module juts out a lot from the otherwise slim body, slightly ruining its look. It suffers from a long-standing problem of being hard to grip.
This is a first for the brand, as Honor has never released a tablet internationally before. But instead of going all-out to top-end iPad Pro competitors, it offers his modest Pad 8 at a more reasonable price. You can buy a Pad 8 for just £270 ($320). Powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 680 processor, there’s a massive 7,250mAh battery inside, and eight speakers around the chassis to deliver stereo sound with support for DTS:X Ultra Hi-Res Audio.
Like the Honor 70, the Pad 8 uses Honor’s Magic UI 6.1 software, which is based on Android 12 and adds the benefits of multitasking with four apps. Due to the wide screen ratio, the black bars at the top and bottom of TV shows and movies are not obtrusive as can be seen in the example trailer (below) with a 21:9 aspect ratio, despite the relatively mediocre processor , the tablet seems responsive.
