Is Honor Play a good option @ 11.6k (14k - 10% - 1k) via HDFC Smartbuy?

Since it’s difficult to get RealMe 3 in sale, will it be a better option? I want fast processor, good battery backup and camera quality.

My budget is max 11k. Please share your opinion.

Note 7 Pro is best
Otherwise
Redmi note 6 Pro is decent deal

Hybrid slot is a deal breaker for me. 😭😭
I was ready to compromise in honor play just coz of processor. But I don’t feel like it for note 7.

Unlike 16 gb phones Micro SD is not needed in 64 gb phone

As you have mentioned fast processor, so I would suggest not to buy Honor phones.
Better go for Snapdragon processor as kirin is not that good

I have read about processors that the less nm architecture, the better it is. So, Sd 636 is 14nm and MT P70 is 12nm.

So, Asus Pro M1 (4+64) in 9k (via HDFC Smartbuy) is better than RealMe 3 (4+64)? I’m Confused bro.

it depends on clocked speed & cores also bro
like if its using 2 cores or 4 cores or 8 cores
for more info google about these

Go for it blindly…I am using it…I migrated from Mi to Honor Play…I bought at 12.6 two months ago.

That might be true of Kirin a few years back but in the last 2 years Kirin has made quite the leap. In fact the Kirin 980 is equally as fast as SD 855 in CPU perf. which is not surprising as they both license A76 cores from ARM. Its a little behind in GPU perf but real world gaming perf. is more than satisfactory. Power efficiency is excellent. The current gen. Huawei flagships are actually the leaders in this regard. Where Qualcomm has the lead is aftermarket development as Huawei last year totally blocked bootloader unlocking. However in India Honor reportedly allows BL unlocking if one applies at service centre but IMO can’t be relied upon. Huawei has become better at OS/security updates so for most users its not a big deal.

That is only part of the story. Its Samsung’s 14nm vs TSMC’s 12nm
( which itself is a refinement of its 16nm process ) with the latter a wee bit better. However the CPU core matters a lot more. For ex. the SD650 on 28nm is nearly TWICE as fast as SD625 on 14nm.

So sir, is SD 636 in Pro M2 better than P70 then? I’m not much into technical stuff, if you could tell me the conclusion. Thanks.

Helio P70 performs a tad in synthetic benchmarks than SD 636 but real world perf. is pretty much indistinguishable. GPU perf. again is a bit better. However I would still recommend SD636 because of the strong developer community which is miniscule in case of Mediatek ones due to non-disclosure of kernel sources and drivers barring a few exceptions.

Hard to recommend considering there’s almost zero development as Huawei doesn’t allow bootloader unlock officially. CPU performance wise its been eclipsed by SD 675 devices although GPU perf. should be noticeably better. But the SD 710 in the Realme 3 Pro is still faster in this regard. Poco F1 for a few thousand extra would be a no-brainer except for the issues that keep cropping up from time to time. Low light imaging and video recording perf. aren’t particularly impressive either and it does tend it heat up a bit.
