The Honor 50 was one of the first smartphones from the Chinese manufacturer to offer the Play Store again, following its separation from Huawei. It was launched last year at 549 euros, but today it only costs 279 euros.

An excellent technical sheet for the price
The Honor 50 isn’t top of the range, as there’s also a model labeled Pro, but it still offers a look that exudes premium with an exemplary quality of finish, except perhaps at the level of the punch which, depending on the color displayed around it, looks really imposing on the front of the slab. The screen also allows itself to be slightly curved on the sides and to offer infinite contrasts thanks to OLED technology. That’s not all, since it also displays a Full HD + definition of 2,340 x 1,080 pixels and a refresh rate of up to 120 Hz for optimal fluidity.
It is not a champion of autonomy, but you should know that its 4,300 mAh battery remains comfortable on a daily basis. In fact, the Honor 50 can easily last the day and even endure the next morning if you haven’t recharged the smartphone overnight. We can obviously say thank you to its adaptive refresh rate which allows you to go from 10 to 120 Hz depending on use and which, therefore, saves a lot of energy. And if the need to recharge the battery arises, it’s rather quick since the 66W power supply can make it recover more than 70% in just 30 minutes (via USB-C). However, no wireless charging on the horizon.
At this price, the Honor 50 is not equipped with the most sophisticated SoC on the market, but the chip it embeds does not have to be ashamed of its performance. The Snapdragon 778G supported by 6 GB of RAM does the job well on the vast majority of the tasks it faces. In Fortnite, for example, the phone automatically sets itself to the highest graphics quality (Epic) by default, even with the “3D resolution” option set to 100%. The experience is generally fluid with, however, an fps that will not go above 30. This also allows it to be compatible with the 5G network.
With a 108 megapixel camera!
Honor has finally seen fit to bet on a very fashionable marketing element: the photo. Indeed, this smartphone offers a versatile device with four sensors, including an 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle, a 2-megapixel macro, a 2-megapixel depth one and above all a 108-megapixel main one. It is true that the shots are finely detailed and pretty to look at, but this sensor that you will use most often does a little too much, with often saturated colors and too marked a contrast. On the other hand, the night mode of the Honor 50 is quite surprising for this price range, while the portrait mode is really perfectible. For selfies, a 32-megapixel camera is housed in the screen punch.
