Is Honor’s new phone Play 3e is good to buy?
This phone has a good display size and you will surely love this display at this price point and other companies should make the same sizes displays also. The processors are decent and this will give you decent battery life also. The cameras are also good except the front one.
I am giving the pick to 2 GB RAM variant and you should not consider the 3 GB RAM variant because that one is overpriced. You can consider this phone under the budget category!
