The Honor 100 Pro was launched in late November 2023 as a flagship smartphone and can still be purchased on a relatively smaller budget. Most flagship phones these days arrive at a price that is not really affordable for everyone, and Honor wants to change that with the Honor 100 Pro. They believe that this smartphone can deliver everything that customers have been asking for for a long time. The smartphone comes with a distinct design and meets the needs of users with all advanced specifications and features.
Honor 100 Pro is a more powerful version of Standard Edition. To achieve this, they've included top-tier specifications, including a gorgeous display, a flagship processor, powerful cameras, and excellent battery life. Also, the software needs to be tuned properly to allow these specifications to shine and provide an excellent experience. So, let's start with a detailed review in which we discuss the specifications and price of the Honor 100 Pro and see whether this smartphone is worth buying or not, after we tried the phone for several days and formed a good impression of it.
The Honor 100 Pro is designed for almost every type of user, and every color of this phone has a unique color. The silver color variant features a two-tone design with a matte finish on the top half and patterns on the bottom half, which looks oddly cool. The blue color variant features unique graphics for those who prefer something bold. The green color variant features subtle colors with a matte finish that looks quite elegant. The black color is for those who prefer the good old classic style and that is the case here.
However, the glass back is very glossy and will pick up a lot of fingerprints. The side frame is chamfered, making it more comfortable to hold and use. On the front, you get a 6.78-inch AMOLED display panel with Full HD+ resolution. The panel is color accurate and features up to a billion colours. Thanks to this, watching the contents on the screen will be enjoyable. The panel also features support for a refresh rate of up to 120Hz, allowing for a smoother user experience. The display is also HDR certified and has a brightness of 2600 nits per inch when the smartphone is under direct sunlight. Moreover, the smartphone has a slim body that weighs around 195 grams, which is lightweight enough to hold the device for a long time.
Honor has put a 4nm Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor inside the Honor 90 Pro, and it's one of the fastest Android processors yet, and it can easily handle anything you throw at it. The chipset is well optimized and does not overheat even when running intensive applications like video editing and rendering applications. Even while gaming, the smartphone gets a little warmer and far from overheating.
The Adreno 740 GPU in the chipset is very powerful and can match the iPhone Pro models. Therefore, games like Genshin Impact, COD Mobile, and PUBG mobile can run at smooth frame rates with high graphics options. Thanks to 4nm manufacturing technology and well-designed heat dissipation system.
Apart from the chipset, the phone also supports RAM ranging from 12GB to 16GB. While the device provides internal storage space ranging from 256 GB to 512 GB and 1 TB. The Honor 100 Pro also comes with MagicOS 7.2 user interface that runs on the latest Android 14 operating system and supports 5G connectivity. With this software, you will receive a lot of customization options on the device.
The Honor 100 Pro features a triple camera system on the back with an impressive 50MP sensor as the main camera, a 32MP sensor as a telephoto camera, and a 12MP sensor as an ultra-wide-angle camera. The main camera features a 50MP sensor that produces stunning shots with high dynamic range, exceptionally great white balance, saturated colors and an amazing level of detail. The ultra-wide camera also manages to capture some equally stunning photos with a wide field of view. This is achieved without any distortion around the edges that typically occurs with ultra-wide sensors.

The Honor 100 Pro has a 5000 mAh lithium-polymer battery, which, combined with an efficient processor, allows very conservative battery consumption. So, the smartphone can easily last about two days of normal daily use. With heavy gaming, the smartphone will not last a full day and requires charging before the end of the day. But there is nothing to worry about because the smartphone is equipped with 100W fast wired charging, which can charge the smartphone to about 50% in just 10 minutes, and the phone also supports 66W wireless charging.
The price of the Honor 100 Pro comes at $475 for the standard version 12 + 256 GB, 16 + 256 GB for $525, while the 16 + 512 GB version is sold for $550, and the highest version 16 + 1 TB for $625.
The phone is currently available for purchase in the Chinese market exclusively through Honor official websiteThe company is expected to launch it in global markets, but it has not yet revealed any details in this regard.
If you want a smartphone with good specifications but don't want to pay a high price, the Honor 100 Pro is the smartphone for you. Honor has implemented all the cutting-edge and leading-edge components it can and the end result is simply amazing. Be it the design or the display, you will fall in love with the smartphone at first sight. To power such a display, Honor used a powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, which is an excellent choice and we must commend Honor for that. The same applies to the backup battery, which is more than excellent.
You might think after presenting all this, that Honor must have tweaked the cameras to suit the budget smartphone it launched with, but that is not the case at all. In fact, the smartphone's camera performance frankly surprised us and is much better than we initially expected. It is the smartphone that users have been wanting in the budget segment. It is an excellent smartphone and you will love this decision. Talking about the downsides, there is a lack of wireless charging support but in any case, this could have increased the cost of the device.
However, if the Honor 100 Pro smartphones are not available for sale in your country, the mid-range Samsung and Xiaomi phones should be the ones for you. However, the final decision is up to you and your requirements, so choose accordingly.
