  • Is Honor Play Waterproof?

    R

    Answered By Rakesh Verma | 6 months ago

    Water Resistance is systematic engineering in a digital product and Honor Play's built makes it very hard to reach a great level of waterproofing.

    Honor Play can get damaged even with a splash. So, Honor Play is not at all waterproof and you might have to get a new one if you drop it in water.

  • Which phone is best between Honor 8X and Xiaomi Poco F1?

    A

    Answered By Archita Sandeep | 2 months ago

    Xiaomi Poco F1 is can cost around 30% as compared to Honor 8X. However, considering the features. Xiaomi Poco F1 does have a stronger configuration (Faster processor + More RAM), a bit higher resolution front camera and a bit more battery capacity with quick charging support.

    In case, stronger configuration and quick charging do not matter much to you, then you should think of choosing Honor 8X and spend your money wisely.
