2-Minute Review

Let's cut through the noise, and get to the crux of it. 4 Expert Reviews analysed and summarised by the PhoneCurry Editorial Team, in a short and sweet 2-minute review.

Design

  • Metal finish, and a sturdy build
  • Overall it's a compact phone that feels solid
  • The fingerprint reader isn't the quickest of them out there

Display

  • At its maximum brightness level, the Holly 4 display still feels dull and doesn't have the best visibility under bright sunlight

Software

  • Huawei's custom EMUI interface is not the simplest one out there - it has plenty of bloatware, and is generally cluttered

Performance

  • The performance is pretty average too, with the UI often lacking fluidity - browsing intensive websites or apps can get choppy and can start lagging quite a bit - it is only good for basic usage - and there are better performing phones in this price bracket

Camera

  • Average rear camera - the colors are too saturated, and indoor photography is poor
  • Average front camera too - the colours felt dull and faded, and you shouldn't expect crisp and accurate selfies here - most of the times the selfies will come out shaky, and you'll find yourself having to take multiple shots to pick the clearest photo

Audio

  • The dual speakers are pretty ordinary too - they aren't loud enough even at the highest levels, and the sound gets muddled and unclear when set on loud

Battery

  • Good battery life - will comfortably last the day
  • Decent charging speed - lets you charge the device from zero to full in about 2 hours

More

  • Pretty lightweight making it easy to carry around
  • It also could have had better resolution (most of the top competition in this price range like the Moto G5 and the Redmi Note 4 have 1080p screens)
  • On the whole, the likes of Redmi Note 4, or Moto G5, or even Honor's own 6X are similarly prices, and bring much more to the table
