A number of months in the past, the Honor 70 launched in Europe, and it acquired a warm welcome in our polls. Now, we’re already speaking in regards to the Honor 80 collection – which hasn’t reached Europe but, however it’s coming. Are folks excited? Yes and no. More particularly, sure to the Honor 80 Pro, and no to the vanilla and SE fashions.
Technically, there isn’t any Pro+ this era, however the Honor 80 Pro virtually fills that area of interest with its Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset. Well, virtually, as a result of a telephoto lens would have been good to see. We suppose the upper decision 160MP sensor makes up for that partially with higher digital zoom, however some commenters have been asking how come this comparatively costly telephone does not have OIS on the principle digicam.
The Honor 80 Pro did not win over everybody, but it surely did attract a good variety of supporters, a quantity that can solely develop if the telephone critiques nicely.
The vanilla Honor 80 looks like a poor substitute for the Honor 70. The chipset is extra highly effective, however solely simply, the 50MP extremely broad is swapped out for a fundamental 8MP unit, and the remaining is not all that totally different from a telephone that’s a number of months previous (not too previous, however sufficiently old to get reductions).
The Honor 80 SE fared even worse, it looks like a whole miss. The downgraded chipset and cameras don’t look good on this $300+ telephone – it is lower than 15% cheaper than the superior vanilla mannequin. Very few voters expressed help for this mannequin, so it would want a strong low cost earlier than gross sales decide up.
We will finish this on a excessive notice. Foldables are nonetheless surrounded by skepticism, however individuals who benefit from the type issue see potential within the Honor Magic Vs. Compared to the unique Magic V, the Vs upgrades the chipset (8+ Gen 1), provides a telephoto digicam as a substitute of a second broad module and will increase battery capability barely.
The vanilla Vs is comparatively low-cost as horizontal foldables go, however even the pricier Magic Vs Ultimate model discovered its supporters. You can take a look at our hands-on review of the Honor Magic Vs for extra particulars.
