Hands on with my namesake, the Honor Holly #MWC15

As a Holly myself, I’m pretty interested in what the Honor Holly has to offer. Sadly, the Honor team at Mobile World Congress weren’t able to give me much to go on – it sounds like a fairly standard low-end Android phone. Here’s a hands on:

At £99.99, the Honor Holly offers a 5-inch 720p HD display, quad-core 1.3Ghz processor, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, an 8MP rear-facing camera and 2MP front-facing, 2000 mAh battery and Android KitKat. It comes in black and white.

The Honor Holly’s main competition is the much-loved Moto E, which costs £109 and offers 4G, Android Lollipop and a range of colour options. It does have less storage (8GB) and lower resolutions on the cameras and screen, (5MP, VGA and quarter-HD respectively), but has had almost universal praise, and offers a higher battery capacity, too. The Honor Holly is a worthy contender, just missing the spark that would make you choose it over the better-known Motorola option.
