It’s a new season full of new opportunities – and yes, that means a good excuse to upgrade your gadgets, too.
But after the tumultuous year we’ve all had, it’s more important than ever that our electronics deliver great value, simplicity and reliability. Not only that, but as many of us adapt to new ways of living, we need tech that can enhance our lives for the better, whether we’re working from home or keeping fit.
Enter HONOR. This innovative and ground-breaking company is changing the face of the tech genre with a creative range of high-performing yet easy to use gadgets, all of which boast industry-leading battery life for a fraction of the cost of their competitors.
Here’s everything you need to know about their current line-up, from its groundbreaking smartphones and laptops to its adventure-ready smart watches.
Smartphone: HONOR 9A
HONOR made its name thanks to its smartphones, and with the 9A it’s easy to see why.
The main draw of this slick-looking device – which is available in Midnight Black – has to be its incredible battery life.
Boasting a staggering 33 hours of 4G calling, 35 hours of video playback or 37 hours of FM radio listening, it’s safe to say that this is a phone you can rely on all day long, whether you’re streaming episodes of your favourite series back-to-back or fielding calls from clients.
Thanks to its 6.3in FullView Display and 20:9 aspect ratio, it’s also a pleasure to use, and you can view any photos you take with its 13MP camera in perfect clarity. Partnered with a 5MP Ultra-Wide Angle Camera and another 2MP Depth Assist Camera, the triple rear camera makes for some truly breathtaking photography, so you can really capture the beauty of your surroundings if you’re out adventuring.
Don’t limit the number of photos you snap, either. With 64GB of storage as standard and 3GB of RAM, the 9A can hold plenty of the memories you make while running multiple apps super fast. What’s more, you can expand the storage up to a whopping 512GB thanks to its 3-choose-3 card slot.
Safety is also a key feature with the HONOR 9A, in terms of your health and your security. Within the 9A’s settings, you’ll find TÜV Rheinland Certified Eye Comfort Mode, an option which reduces the blue light emitted from your device to protect your vision, a must for those who rely on their phones for work and play.
As for security, HONOR 9A’s 8MP front-facing camera offers face unlocking so only you can access your device. Plus, it has fingerprint ID located on the back of the phone, so as soon as you pick it up, it’s ready for you.
You can also personalise your HONOR 9A with Petal Search, the go-to place for downloading your favourite apps – find out more about this below.
Buy the HONOR 9A for £129.99.
HONOR devices may seem a little different from what you’re used to – but that doesn’t mean you can’t still have the apps you love.
All HONOR smartphones come with the App Gallery, which enables you to download the apps you are familiar with. Another resource on HONOR phones is the Petal Search app, which recommends and helps you to download other apps that you may need from multiple sources.
Plus, with the Phone Clone app, you can upload all your photos, videos, contacts, data and apps from your old phone quickly for a seamless user experience once you’ve upgraded.
Smartwatch: HONOR GS PRO
Watches can do so much more than just tell the time these days, as the HONOR Watch GS PRO proves.
Ideal for anyone who’s been embracing the great outdoors this year, this rugged yet smart-looking watch has a durable, lightweight design and is available in Charcoal Black and Marl White.
Like the HONOR 9A, the Watch GS PRO’s most impressive feature has to be its battery life, as it can last 25 whole days on a single charge, and up to 48 hours when its built-in GPS tracking system is enabled, making it a reliable adventure companion.
But there are lots of other exciting features too, including daily activity monitoring so you can count your step count and the calories you’ve burned, as well as over 100 workout modes, which accurately track exercises such as swimming, cycling and skiing so you know how far to push yourself. It even has an Sp02 monitor which measures your blood’s oxygen saturation levels.
Importantly for constantly on the go professionals, the Watch GS PRO can manage phone calls and also features a sleep and stress monitor, which enables you to assess and improve your sleep while take better care of your wellbeing.
Buy the HONOR Watch GS PRO for £249.99, or the sleek HONOR Watch ES for £99.99, which boasts 10 days battery life, fitness monitoring and a Female Cycle Tracker for monitoring your menstrual cycle and fertility windows.
And to top it off HONOR’s new MagicBook laptops also come with the same great battery longevity, which charge in as little as 30 minutes and offer 10+ hours of all-day battery life, so you won’t ever get caught short if you forget your charger.
They feature speedy Ryzen 5 processors and the same TÜV Rheinland low blue light filter as the HONOR 9A, as well as flicker-free certification so you can get to work without straining your eyes.
Security remains a consistent asset across the HONOR range, and all the laptops come with integrated fingerprint sensor power buttons, meaning only you can turn the device on. Every laptop in the MagicBook range also has pop-up webcams which only work when you need them to, so you can guarantee your privacy in everything you do.
