Launched last year, the Honor 70 is a mid-range smartphone that stands out in particular for its neat design, its OLED screen and its comfortable autonomy. A good model which today has the advantage of being cheaper thanks to a promotion coupled with a promo code: on the Honor site, it can be found at 399 euros instead of 549 euros.
Last year, Honor made an impression by launching its mid-range smartphone Honor 70, whose technical sheet included several features borrowed from the premium segment, such as its OLED screen refreshed at 120 Hz. But, one of the big black spots of this model was indeed its price, which was considered too high compared to the competition. Fortunately, this price has just dropped below 400 euros, which makes it much more recommendable.
The essential points of the Honor 70
- A 6.67-inch + 120 Hz AMOLED panel
- A Snapdragon 778G+ chip
- Good stamina
Launched at 549 euros, then reduced to 449 euros, the Honor 70 (128 GB) is now offered at 399 euros on the Honor site thanks to the promo code ARCPSH70.

Where to buy the
Honor 70 at the best price?
An elegant and neat design
Visually, the Honor 70 has everything of a premium smartphone. With its brushed back, its curved edges and its round photo modules very well aligned on the back, we have very neat finishes. We still recommend wearing a shell to prevent small scratches. Otherwise, we will appreciate the overall lightness of the smartphone, since it weighs only 178 g. And, despite its height of 161.4 mm, it will not be very imposing with its thickness of only 7.91 mm.
Regarding its screen, Honor has bet on a 6.67-inch curved OLED panel, which has the advantage of being very bright. The definition in Full HD+ will provide good image quality rich in detail. And that’s not all: the screen of the Honor 70 also has an adaptive refresh rate that can climb to 120 Hz, which allows you to enjoy excellent display fluidity.
Honorable performance and a good photo module
On the power side, the Honor 70 is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G Plus chip, a processor intended for the mid-range and supposed to beef up in-game capabilities, in order to offer better AI performance. However, pushing the graphics settings to the maximum could expose us to some lag during gaming sessions. For less demanding and more basic tasks, the smartphone will do very well. Fluidity will thus be there for navigation, multitasking or even messaging.
As for the photo, the Honor 70 performs its mission correctly thanks to its three sensors (a main sensor of 54 megapixels (f / 1.9), an ultra wide-angle of 50 megapixels and a depth sensor 2 megapixels ). The smartphone thus offers great versatility and beautiful sufficiently detailed shots. The sharpness and the colorimetry are particularly satisfactory, but the management of the dynamics is sometimes difficult, unfortunately.
A truly durable smartphone
The best for last: where the Honor 70 really manages to stand out is in terms of its autonomy. Indeed, you can count on a day and a half of use with a classic mixed use, even intensive thanks to its 4,800 mAh battery as well as the good optimization of the device. Special mention also for its particularly economical standby mode. On the charging side, we will be entitled to a block of 66 W, with the fast charge which will allow us to recover 50% of energy in the space of 20 minutes. For a full recharge, you will have to wait for 1 hour.
