Editor Rating

The Honor Play 6C is a very basic entry-level smartphone from the brand, which features a simple yet nice-looking design featuring a 2.5D curved display and a polycarbonate back that comes in a nice reflective finish. The front features a tear-drop display design, while the rear gets a square camera module that hosts two sensors and a flash. The display is an average 720p IPS display, although you do get a 90Hz refresh rate by default. It is even certified by German Rheinland for low blue light eye protection. On the inside, you get a basic Snapdragon 480+ processor with up to 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage.


Bottom Line

The Honor Play 6C is an affordable entry-level smartphone which sadly skips out on a lot of the latest components even for this price range, especially in the display and camera department. The only saving grace is the large battery and decent processor.
