BERLIN — If it seems like Huawei's millennial-focused smartphone brand, Honor, keeps rolling out phones that offer flagship features at affordable prices, well, that's because it is. This year alone, the brand has launched the Honor View 10 in the U.S. and the Honor 10 in other parts of the world. And now, those two devices will be joined by another phone that's targeting mobile gamers.

The Honor Play, which is already available in India for the U.S. equivalent of $286 and is rolling out in the United Kingdom and parts of Western Europe, is getting a coming-out party here at the IFA trade show in Berlin. The latest Honor phone takes a page (or several) from Samsung's Galaxy Note 9 playbook by emphasizing unusually powerful gaming performance and an artificially intelligent camera .

We put the Play to the test with both rigorous benchmarking and real-world use to see if its performance and camera are anything to write home about. Read on for our first impressions to see if this is a device U.S. gamers should demand.

Glancing at the Honor Play's spec sheet, it's tough to believe that Honor's latest device is a performance powerhouse. It has 4GB of RAM, compared to the Honor View 10's 6GB and the 8GB packed into the OnePlus 6 . But the Play has a unique feature called GPU Turbo, which optimizes the device's software. It also runs an upgraded version of Honor's EMUI layered on top of Android 8.1 Oreo, which enables the Huawei Kirin 970 processor to enhance graphics processing and extend the battery.

After the jaw-dropping  Xiaomi Mi Mix  back in 2016, phone manufacturers quickly started launching ‘bezel-less’ phones. And many decided to cram in a larger screen rather than make a physically smaller phone.

They did this by making it taller with an 18:9 aspect ratio instead of 16:9. 18:9 is super fashionable, but until now with the 7X, was out of reach for those on a budget. Even the OnePlus 5T costs £449, which is the very top of mid-range.

Let’s start with the screen, as it’s the most obvious feature. On paper the specs - 5.93in, 18:9 aspect, 2160x1080 resolution – could fool you into thinking it’s the same display as the Mate 10 Pro. But it isn’t.

OLED screens are more expensive, so Honor has gone for an IPS panel in the 7X. It makes sense, and it’s still a great screen. Viewing angles are wide, it’s nice and bright and colours are surprisingly vibrant.

Though it costs £229.99 in the UK, the Honor 8X looks, feels and performs like a high-end smartphone in most respects. It features a gorgeous 6.5in FHD+ bezel-less display and an eye-catching glass and aluminium design that makes it stand out amongst the competition.

It also offers high-end features like facial recognition, alongside the rear-facing fingerprint scanner, and although performance can be a little spotty in the most demanding 3D games, we've experienced very little in the way of lag in general use. 

While you might assume that the Honor 8X is a high-end, premium smartphone , it actually costs less than £250 in the UK. Sporting a gorgeous bezel-less display, unique design and an impressive camera setup, the Honor 8X could be one of the best mid-range smartphones on the market at the moment.

The Honor 8X is now available to buy in the UK, following an early October launch. The Honor 8X is much cheaper than it looks; it only costs only £229.99 in the UK, while those in Europe can pick the smartphone up for €249.90.

A year or so ago I said the Honor View 10 was a worthy and impressive flagship handset, easily able to hold its own with the best of the competition at its price. Since then we've seen an inexorable rise in top-flight handset prices, generating something of a backlash. We've also seen the recent arrival of Chinese giant Xiaomi in the UK, its £499 Mi 8 Pro creating a real buzz and anticipation of more to come.

If the £400-£600 price bracket was competitive before all that, it's even more cutthroat now, and Honor has upped the ante with the View 20 . This 6.4-inch handset is available with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage for £499.99, or with 8GB and 256GB for £579.99.

With the View 20, Honor has gone all out to create a handset that looks distinctively different. Three features contribute. There is the much-talked-about 'hole-punch' camera, an intriguing design at the back, and the near all-screen front. Each of these deserves attention.

The front camera sits in the top left of the screen, enclosed in a small circular frame, and embedded within the display rather than separated from it. This positioning is the cue for that 'hole-punch' descriptor.
