6 Reasons why Honoy Holly is better than Redmi 1s. Owner of both phones.
Firstly would like to tell you that i'm an owner of both the phones. Previously owned redmi but really got tired of the phone and since i coudn't return it, i also bought a Honor holly after taking part time jobs for a month.
Also i would like to state that this review is not for purposes acknowledging 'which phone is better'. It's just a generous review by my experence that i had faced with both the phones and made a final verdict. Before going ahead and taking a 'casual' attitude and giving a dislike to this comment, think about the time and money a person can save which apparently i coudn't and had to work for a month to buy another phone.
-TO THE POINT NOW-
-No heating issue.
Get's warm BUT NEVER CLOSE TO THE HEAT of redmi 1s. Even after v45 update, the phone get "very" warm if not "HOT", But while playing games, redmi 1s still gets very HOT after sometime, while it's just "warm enough" in honor holly.
-Better RAM Management
My redmi 1s even after the v45 update has only 200-250mb left. However if i reboot. it becomes 400MB free. But after a few days, it again goes back to 200-(85% to be more precise),
Honor holly has 600MB free after reboot and nearly 400-350MB after good days of usage.
-No instantaneous HANGS.
Having a snapdragon processor, we expect a lot but that does not happen in real. While playing games like subway surfers, i noticed a very instantaneous lag that occurs for about a second on redmi 1s, same goes while playing youtube videos and you click on it for a pause pop up and the video freezes for the second. I HATE SUCH phones, and there is none of it in holly. EXTREMELY SMOOTH AND NICE in holly.
-MUCH MORE STORAGE
Redmi 1s had nearly i think about 5gb free storage and you CANNOT MOVE APPS TO SD CARD, on the other side Honor Holly not only provides 13gb free storage but also apps are MOVABLE TO SD CARD + EXPANDABLE SD. Mega storage phone.
MUCH BETTER CALL QUALITY.
On of the top 5 reasons i like holly is the EXCELLENT CALL QUALITY. My redmi 1s has a very distorting voice, creaky voice a bit. OVERALL not that clear. HOLLY HAS EXCELLENT QUALITY. No difference between my iphone call quality and holly call quality. REALLY AMAZING! Same goes for the speakers, WAY BETTER QUALITY but yes, slightly lower volume than redmi.
They seriously need an update. Really slow in getting the updates. When Android L has already made it's appearence, Redmi 1s users are still stuck in jeallybean. Why won't anyone get furious? on the other side holly gets kitkat out of the box.
