When it comes to comparing smartphones with each other, you have several options.Depending on whether you are a seasoned user or a beginner, the choices are different.Already at the level of the operating system of this 8S 2020 64 GB: here, it is an Android with all the Honor ecosystem that goes with it.
Now let’s see the results of our situational testing.
This 8S 2020 64 GB is not good for all uses.This model is very far from the top of the range, and may eventually meet the need for a first phone for a child.Only its well-placed price is interesting; it can be a temporary choice.
|Avoid choosing this phone for|
|Playing video games|
|Photographing or filming|
What does mobility look like?
Your smartphone must be able to accompany you at all times. Beyond its telephone function, we expect it to be as good for surfing the internet and usable when travelling.
8S 2020 64 GB’s really small.In fact, it’s one of the smallest (5.71 inches) compared to other smartphones.
Obviously with this size, it is not easy to surf the net.Forget the videos, too.It’s a model made for telephoning, mainly.
In addition, it natively offers Wifi technology.This allows you to easily have a connection with a comfortable speed.This smartphone has GPS.You know where you stand.Unless you’re in the middle of the desert.
This on model, you can have more than one phone number.In other words, the ability to use multiple phone lines in this unit.And therefore several operators on this model.This feature will be useful for travellers among you, who will be able to integrate a prepaid SIM card of the country they are in, without having to remove the main card.
Detail that is missing on this 8S 2020 64 GB is the absence of reinforced glass.No protection against scratches or the shocks of everyday life.You will need to plan for the purchase of a protective film.
Autonomy is one of the worst features on this model.There is only 3020 mAh, which is low for normal use.As a precaution, you may have an external battery available nearby.
And since Honor did not consider it useful to put a fast charge on this model, we will have to wait.Convenient to use, it would have made it possible to recharge quickly.
The right choice for watching movies?
Smartphones have become the new televisions.Perfectly designed for our daily needs.You can also listen to continuous music anywhere.Because of the power of smartphones and their connectivity, you can watch whatever you want.However, the first smartphone that comes along is not necessarily going to fit.
With a low reading comfort, the 8S 2020 64 GB is not designed for multimedia.He’s one of the worst in the business.The 5.71 -inch screen is poorly suited for exercise.For information, the resolution is 720 x 1520.It is rather advisable to listen to music.
This includes an IPS LCD screen.That is to say that it offers very good colours and very wide viewing angles.
Honor has also designed this product for audio use.The 3.5mm jack input allows the connection of headphones and/or a microphone.
With its OS version installed, the phone supports wireless Hi-Fi audio via Bluetooth.The result is very pleasant to the ear.
And finally, for the sound, we were surprised not to find the stereo.
The right choice to play online?
For games, you need performance.The same applies to the ever-increasing number of applications that reduce battery capacity.For smooth and responsive rendering on 3D video games, it is necessary to combine a good processor with a good graphics processor.In short, technology and the latest generation of components provide better playability.
Our tests put this 8S 2020 64 GB at the bottom of the list in terms of power.The Mediatek MT6761 Helio A22 (12 nm) processor is weak and the graphics processing unit of a lower quality than we would have liked.The rendering at the image level is inferior to the competition.
We’re at the standard level in terms of RAM.That’s 64 GB available.And because Honor predicted that some of you would be demanding gamers, you have the ability to expand the available memory.
Forget the long video game sessions on this model.Moreover, this model is one of the least efficient at the moment.With a power of 3020 mAH, it will need to be recharged during the day.
As with games, this smartphone is not intended to have many applications.unfortunately, it is at a very low reading comfort level.It won’t be easy to read the downloaded documents.The images are of lower quality, they can sometimes pixelize, and give a final rendering that is painful for the eyes.
And to finish on the application part, we note that the payment function via telephone (the NFC), is not available here.
The tool to make photos, movies?
Having become an essential use of smartphones, the photo function has made great strides since the first generations.For a long time, manufacturers have been communicating about the millions of pixels their devices were equipped with.However, this is not the only criterion to be taken into account.The possible retouching via application is also interesting.Honor is renowned for the quality of its sensors and the design of its smartphones.
Little progress has been made by Honor.This model thus has only one objective.
The 13 Mp resolution of this model is interesting.You will find the brightness and colours of your holiday images at your fingertips.It’s not the best device for making selfies.Reprocessing photos is not intuitive.This 8S 2020 64 GB allows you to take pictures, but will not restore the brightness or colors.
This model contains 64 GB of available space.This space will be correct to store your image and sound files.And with this amount available, you’ll have time to sort out what you don’t want to keep and what you need to transfer to your computer or to the cloud.
Finally, the 8S 2020 64 GB…
Following our tests, we see that this 8S 2020 64 GB is not good for all cases.With lesser performance, it does not reach the level of the best.In conclusion, it’s a pricey choice.
