So, here are the top 7 things to know about the Huawei Honor Holly 2 Plus-

1.Battery life

The USP of the device is the mammoth 4000 mAh battery, which can easily give you a two days of usage, other than that, it also supports reversible charging, which enables you to charge other devices.


For gaming, the device packs a Mali-T720 MP2 GPU, but sadly, the gaming performance isn’t that smooth, the device fails to handle even moderate games, but if you play on medium graphics, then you might not have to face any kind of issues.


Under the hood, the Honor Holly 2 Plus packs a MediaTek MT6735P quad-core processor paired with 2 GB of RAM, so when it comes to performance, the device gives you a fluent multi-tasking experience in day-to-day usage.

4.Poor Sound Quality

The device comes with two speaker grills, but only one of them houses a loudspeaker. When it comes to quality, the sound quality isn’t that great, and due to its spacing at the bottom, it can easily get blocked by hands, when you play games or watch movies on this device.


As far as the camera is concerned, the rear of the Honor Holly 2 Plus gets a 13 MP rear facing camera, and a 5 MP front-facing camera, coming to the quality, the rear does a very good job in good lighting conditions but fails to shines in low-lighting conditions. On the other hand, the 5 MP front camera manages to captures some really good wide angle pictures.


The device sports a 5.0 inch IPS grade display, which comes with a resolution of (720×1280 p), the display comes with good viewing angles, the color reproduction is also quite accurate, over all the screen quality is not the best display if you look at the price point.

7.Marshmallow update

Out of the box, the Honor Holly 2 Plus runs on Android v5.1(Lollipop), but the good thing is Huawei has confirmed that the device will receive the Android v6.0(Marshmallow) update within one or two months.
