  • Does Honor Play have gorilla glass?

    R

    Answered By Ram Bhat | 7 months ago
    No, the Honor Play does not have Gorilla Glass. It means that the phone's screen is vulnerable and can break if handled carelessly. You can use tempered glass to protect the phone's screen from damage.

  • Is Honor Play Waterproof?

    R

    Answered By Rakesh Verma | 7 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.

    Answered By Ram Bhat | 7 months ago

    The Honor Play does not support FM Radio. These days many phones are not having the FM Radio option, including the OnePlus 6. However, many omissions can be forgiven when a phone is as affordable as the Honor Play.
