Honor 70 – A Review of a Mid-Range Android Phone

Estimated read time 4 min read

Honor 70 is an elegant, lightweight phone that offers premium looks at an excellent value. Its camera setup makes this phone even more desirable.

It uses a Sony IMX800 sensor as its main camera, with 50MP ultra wide and 2MP depth sensors completing its set-up around back.


Honor 70 features the Sony IMX800 sensor as its primary camera, offering stunning picture quality with vivid hues.

The camera UI is fairly intuitive. There’s a pro mode, night mode and bokeh effect to add some dimension to photos taken at night or during the day; in addition, super macro, panorama and time-lapse modes provide additional tools.

The 32-megapixel selfie camera produces top-quality pictures. Meanwhile, its ultra-wide rear camera can capture breathtaking landscapes and architecture images without distortion – and also doubles up as an excellent super macro mode for close up shots! Video fans are catered to as well with 4K recording at 30FPS and slow motion options in the “More” menu; plus there is also a Solo Cut tracking mode which follows subjects directly for one-shot videos!


The Honor 70 uses Qualcomm’s powerful mid-range SoC, the Snapdragon 778G+. This phone features 8GB of RAM in its global variant and plenty of UFS 3.1 flash storage for smooth performance; I rarely experienced any lag when switching apps or streaming video over public Wi-Fi.

It features a 4800mAh battery with fast 66W charging capabilities that allows it to go from zero to 100% in just 40 minutes – truly impressive. Unfortunately, wireless charging is missing which could be disappointing to some users; nonetheless this phone offers solid midrange functionality including great display, HD camera resolution and an exceptional slim and light design which proves quite durable.


The Honor 70 is an elegant and captivating mid-range Android phone, taking on competitors such as Pixel 6a and Nothing Phone (1) in this market. Boasting impressive cameras and a massive screen that takes up nearly all available space on its body, its price makes this product very reasonable given what you get out of it.

Display quality is of an exceptionally high standard and was a joy to use, its edges curved to give an experience similar to holding a larger phone while maintaining a premium feel. Camera app offers many features including selfie capture with 32MP front camera; video capture from both rear cameras can be recorded simultaneously (which we found quite convenient); Face ID works seamlessly and we had no issues when switching it on or off;


Honor 70 stands up well against its mid-range competition with its slim, stylish form factor and impressive camera capabilities.

This phone features an eye-catching design with its curvy AMOLED display. While previously exclusive to flagship devices, such an aesthetic works great here and makes the phone appear premium compared to rival devices such as the OnePlus 6T, Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro, or semi-transparent Nothing Phone 1.

Honor’s Magic UI provides an intuitive experience, featuring themes, mirroring and an easy camera app that streamlines taking selfies. Furthermore, there’s an AI button which lets you select whether or not the phone uses artificial intelligence to adjust settings based on what it thinks you’re shooting.


Honor is making its mark back on the smartphone scene, with smartphones like Honor 70 showing remarkable photography capabilities, large bright screens and excellent battery life for an affordable price point.

Sony provided its 54MP sensor that uses smart processing techniques to deliver sharp and colorful photos, along with a 32MP selfie camera up front.

With its 4,800mAh battery, the 70 is designed for most users and will easily last through one day of intensive usage; we even managed two in some instances! You can quickly recharge it using its 66W SuperCharge feature; its only weakness may be performance differences with higher-end chipsets that gamers and power users might notice.
