Honor Holly – Review – Part 2

Welcome back to the Honor Holly review part 2. Today I am going to cover the audio and camera.

The Honor Holly camera app has a number of options available including ISO controls all the way up to ISO 1,600. The burst mode captures up to 40 shots or you can amend the setting to allow up to 99 shots in a burst. The burst mode works fairly well. The separate post today covers off some of the camera shots taken on this phone.

It also features a number of other options from HDR, Face detection and timer can be set for 2 or 10 seconds.

Scene mode has options for night, sunset, party, portrait, panorama, night portrait, theatre, beach, snow, steady photo, fireworks, sports, candle light or auto. There is a number of colour filters available from whiteboard, blackboard, aqua, negative, sepia and mono.

The main interface on the left side includes modes for panorama, face beauty, live photo mode (combines a photo and video) and the standard camera shooting mode. On the top right you can toggle HDR and the flash and switch between front and rear camera.

All in all a competent set of options and in my testing a good camera too that punches above it weight at its price point.

The Honor Holly has its own music player app, similar to Honor 6 which I reviewed recently.It also includes a number of options in the graphic equaliser department as shown below.

The loudspeaker sounded a bit tinny and the sound via the headphone socket was satisfactory. However, with the help of all the EQ options you could tweak it to your liking. I tried connecting via USB Audio but the Honor Holly does not support this.

Tomorrow I will provide my final thoughts on the Honor Holly.
