Butter and butter money. This colloquial expression is often used in a negative way, to describe an unfavorable situation. This is not the case with the Honor 70 which, on the contrary, ticks all the boxes in a very good way. Equipped with a premium technical sheet with a Snapdragon 778G processor with 8 GB of RAM, this very ambitious mid-range smartphone is the only one in its category to offer a high-performance Sony photo sensor usually reserved for flagships. Honor has chosen to make it an ideal creation tool for vloggers in particular and all videographers eager for settings and ease of use for their creations on TikTok, YouTube and other popular social networks.
A high-end photo configuration
Once is not custom, it is by the photo part that we start this presentation because it deserves a spotlight. Indeed, the Honor 70 stands out from its rivals by the presence of a Sony IMX800 main sensor of 54 megapixels 1/1.49 inch associated with an f/1.9 wide-angle lens. A component that is usually intended for the most opulent smartphones. Thanks to its size, this sensor offers very good performance in low light conditions. Added to this is a 50 megapixel ultra wide-angle sensor (f / 2.2) and a 2 megapixel sensor with f / 2.4 optics for depth detection. Enough to have all the necessary versatility whatever the scenes (portrait, night photo, macro, landscapes, etc.) and the lighting conditions.
A new video mode
Honor has paid special attention to video (4K at 30 FPS or 1080p at 60 FPS) with the ability to record two streams from the 32MP selfie camera and rear camera to shoot two subjects or two scenes simultaneously . Ideal for the user if he wishes to combine the two side-by-side views with the montage, mix a close-up and a wide shot or even embed one of the views in the other. At this point in the article, videographers should already be imagining all the creative possibilities that the Honor 70 could offer them. And that’s not all !
With Solo Cut mode, it is possible to shoot a scene while focusing on a particular subject. We then obtain two videos, one focus, the other wide shot. For example, imagine that we are filming a sporting event. You can capture the action as a whole while choosing to focus on a particular athlete. Both videos are output in 1080p and the athlete’s focus video can be easily relayed on social media if the user chooses to capture it in portrait format.
A superb 120 Hz curved OLED screen
The Honor 70 makes beautiful images and also displays them in all their glory thanks to its 6.67-inch 1080 x 2400 pixel (395 ppi) HDR10+ compatible Oled screen which benefits from a fast refresh rate of 120 Hertz. Combined with the Snapdragon 778G+ SoC, it offers impeccable fluidity, both for everyday use and for video games or streaming. With its curved edges and its surface which occupies 85% of the facade, it ensures total immersion.
A marathon runner’s autonomy
The Honor 70 is as durable as it is efficient thanks to its 4800 mAh battery which provides more than a day of use. And thanks to the ultra-fast SuperCharge 66 Watts charger, it only takes 45 minutes to fill up, while 20 minutes is enough to recharge it up to 60%.
Ultra thin and light design
We end this tour of the owner with the design which is illustrated by its quality of finish and its elegance. With only 178 grams on the scale and its curved lines, the Honor 70 is pleasant to hold. The front camera housed in a punch and the fingerprint reader hidden under the screen add to the high-end impression inspired by this decidedly very complete smartphone.
Three launch offers for the Honor 70
On the occasion of its launch, the Honor 70 benefits from not one but three promotions. If you order your Honor 70 (8 GB/256 GB) on the brand’s website, you will be entitled to a €50 reduction as well as a pair of Honor Earbuds 3 Pro Bluetooth headphones and a cover offered.
The SFR operator offers two promotions combining a 24-month package and the purchase of the Honor 70 at a sacrificed price. For example, if you opt for the 150 GB plan, the phone will cost you €1 plus €5/month over 24 months. And if you pass by
the SFR website, you can benefit from a bonus of 100 euros for the recovery of an old smartphone with a promo code of 50 euros. For those who already have a package and prefer to buy the Honor 70 alone, it is €549 at Fnac and at Darty thanks to a 50€ trade-in on your old smartphone. This is called the king’s choice!
