Huawei Honor Holly has an impressive thin design. It is a lightweight phone with good features. We will be checking the same in more details. Compared to Moto E this pone looks bit bigger. But it is not durable that you have to take care while using. The back panel is glossy which can get slippery with wet hands.


At the front side lies a 5-inch HD IPS display with three non-back lit capacity key on the bottom side. At the top there is a single 2MP camera for taking selfies and other sensors.


There are two keys on the right side. This is volume rocker and power key. A 3.5mm audio jack is placed on the top side and there is a micro usb port on the bottom side.


At the backside lies an 8MP camera with led flash and loud speaker on the bottom side.

It has a removable battery cover. There are two sim slots inside with a memory card slot on the same. Huawei Honor Holly is a decent phone. It does not look odd from any angle.

Performance & Camera:

The device runs on a 1.2Ghz quad core processor and 1GB of RAM. This gives enough juice to run various types of games and applications. You can run different apps at the same time. But do not expect much at the gaming part. Because it is not having a very effective gpu. Still this phone is a bit better in comparison to Moto E. It offers us smooth performance and all apps works very well. You can use it for day to day work like chatting, facebook, web surfing, etc. 16GB storage is more than enough to store HD videos. You can extend the same by adding a MicroSd card on the same. At somepoint the device gets heated when you are playing games for long period. HD games will mostly lag on this. I had tried installing few one's, which does not perform well. Huawei Honor Holly has dual camerasupport. At the front side it has a 2MP camera that gives you decent output for taking selfies, while on the back it has an 8MP camera. It also has a flash support. The camera quality is not very high end but enough to take instant good pictures. Images are lot better when you are taking the same in sunlight.


Huawei Honor Holly is a great device under the entry level category. It might not offer you durable design but it is better in terms of performance and output. It works very well with various apps and has no lagging or freezing problem. Quad core CPU and 1GB RAM lets you to use everything with ease. But when it comes to gaming it falls short. Battery life is one of the biggest point of Huawei Honor Holly smartphone. You can optimize and make it lot more better if you turn off un-necessary things from your device. Like avoiding gps and mobile data all the time. The cost of Huawei Honor Holly is Rs.7000 which is not bad from any angle.
