It’s fair to say that the budget smartphone market isn’t getting any less crowded in 2015. Between Motorola’s blinding efforts in the Moto G and Moto E and Xiaomi’s very well received Redmi line there’s a thousand companies vying for the ‘good enough’ market. Huawei are no stranger to that particular segment, having made their living over the last five or six years letting UK carriers rebrand their phones and sell them on the cheap. Still, times move on and the power of the brand in smartphone production is undeniable.

With that, it’s no surprise that Huawei launched yet another low end handset this month in the shape of the Honor Holly. The phone comes with a 5″ 720p display, MediaTek MT6582 processor, Mali-400MP2 GPU, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, SD card slot, 8MP rear and 2MP front cameras. Indeed, it’s also got dual sim card support, for those international travellers on the tightest of budgets.

Along with this, Huawei picked a pricing strategy that falls firmly on the ‘gimmick’ side of the fence, with the price falling depending on how many decided to pre-order it. Understandably, that lack of clarity in pricing led to some mixed reviews when we did our roundup of the phone. Well, we finally know just how much the phone costs, and it’s a downright unbelievable £75. That puts it around £15 cheaper than the Moto E and with significantly improved specifications, making it something of a steal.

The Honor Holly can be purchased right now through Amazon, so let us know if you take the plunge – we’d love to hear your opinions!
