Meet HONOR 70!

To recap, the handset comes with a 6.67-inch OLED curved screen with a 2,400 x 1080 resolution, a 120Hz refresh rate, and up to 1000 nits peak brightness.

Inside is the 6nm Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G+ octa-core processor, 8GB RAM, 256GB of storage, and a 4,800mAh battery with 66W fast charging.

At the back are triple rear cameras while on the punch hole is the single selfie camera.

Let's unbox it first.
Packaging
Packaging

The HONOR 70 comes in minimalist white packaging with the HONOR 70 logo, key specs and features, and regulatory information.
Box inclusions

Inside the box are the phone, SIM ejector tool, USB-C cable, 66W charger, silicone case, and documentation.

At first glance, the phone looks near flagship grade in terms of materials used, design, and fit and finish.

The body is made of a metal frame with curved glass front and back panels. This makes the phone easier on the eyes and easier to hold; however, the two glass panels are also fingerprint smudge magnets.

Even though the body is made of the said materials, the phone is surprisingly lightweight yet solid to hold too.

As mentioned above, the front 6.67-inch OLED screen has a 120Hz refresh rate, a 2400 x 1080 resolution, and up to 1,000 nits peak brightness.

Around the panel are super slim bezels while on top is the single punch hole that houses the front-facing camera.

Images produced are sharp, detailed, and vibrant. And because of the 1000 nits peak brightness, the screen is readable under direct sunlight.

As you can see, the rear cameras perform well. The detail and sharpness are good from both the ultra-wide camera and the primary camera. The contrast is good too but the color isn't as vibrant as we would like.

The same can be said for selfie cameras. The detail and sharpness are good but the color could be more lively.

Overall, for the price, the cameras perform well, especially in low light.

Performance

We ran some benchmarks like the Antutu where we got a score of 552,394. While on Geekbench we got 808 points on the single core and 2815 on the multi-core tests.
3DMark and CPDT

In 3DMark the phone managed to score 2,662 overall and scored 15.9 average FPS. While si CPDT scored 710.28 MB/s in sequential read speeds and it scored 483.56 MB/s in sequential write speeds.

In real-life use, the phone runs smoothly. There are barely any hiccups. Navigating thru the UI and opening or switching between apps is instantaneous without slowdown.
Battery usage
Battery usage

The 4,800mAh battery manages to last thru a long workday with a total of 6 hours and 41 minutes of on-screen time with 5 percent battery left. It takes under 60 minutes to charge the battery from 0 to 100 percent.

The single speakers produce sound with good clarity and separation but the maximum volume could be louder than we would like.

The fingerprint reader and Face Unlock are both easy and quick to set up. Once set up, both detect our face and our fingerprint immediately unlocks the phone. The camera does struggle at times when the environment is dark or when we are wearing a mask.

For connectivity, 5G, VoLTE, WiFi, Bluetooth, and NFC works as expected.

The HONOR 70 is running on Android 12-based Magic UI. It is familiar and easy to use. People will be happy to know that Google services are present and running as any Android phone with Google would.
