Honor Holly 2 Plus Hands on Review, Specs and Price

Honor Holly was a great Smartphone, but it was underdeveloped in some areas, like a camera segment and a small battery. With an upgraded version launched now, let’s have a look at what Honor Holly 2 Plus has in store for you.

Honor Holly 2 Plus specifications

Design and Display:

The previous version of Holly was a bare-bone structure with plastic all over, but Holly 2 Plus comes with a faux metal frame with plastic internals. Though it is still a minor upgrade, but is a little better than the previous one. At the front, you have the same old but good minimalistic design from Huawei.

With a 5-inch HD IPS display, with some thick bezels, the front sides look pretty classy. You get the proximity sensor on the left and 5MP front camera on the right. On the back side, you get the Honor logo along with a 13 MP camera above it along with LED flash on the left.

With a simplistic design, the display has again disappointed us a bit. The glass doesn’t have any protective coating and you will end up cleaning the display after every use. The viewing angles make the display even more blurred, even when the phone is lying on your desk.

But when you hold it in your hands, the display looks okay. Indoor visibility is normal, but don’t expect the screen to adjust smoothly toward direct sunlight.

Software and Performance:

Holly 2 comes packed with a 1.3GHz MediaTek MT6735 chipset sporting a quad-core setup and a Mali T720 GPU. There’s 2 GB RAM and 16 GB internal storage which is expandable.

On top of all this power, there is Android 5.1 Lollipop with custom EMUI 3.1 skinning which we believe has enhanced the hardware for good as well. Version 3,1 has chucked out all extra stuff and Huawei has also gotten rid of extra apps that make the phone heavier to use.

The result is a silky smooth UI with no lag and basic stuff. There are many customization options available along with improvements in basic apps of the home screen, lock screen, etc.


A decent upgrade, Holly 2 Plus comes with a 13 MP back camera with an f/2.0 aperture on the back with a single LED flash and a 5 MP front camera.

The cameras work greatly, the photographs were pretty detailed and the colors were vibrant as well. Even the camera software is pretty smooth now as compared to the previous novel.

Some of the new features Ultra Snapshot feature one can launch the camera and click a quick snapshot by simply double pressing the volume down button.


Honor Holly 2 plus had deeply impressed us with its long-lasting battery life. A massive 4000 mAh battery allows you to use your phone up to 18-24 hours straight with normal usage. During heavy usage, the battery will easily last up to 15 hours.

The device would retail for a price of INR 8499 and it’s already available on Flipkart.com! Do check out our Honor Holly 2 Plus complete review below:
