So, if you are planning to buy one you better hurry up.
The Honor 90 5G sports a wonderful curved glass display with DXOMARK Gold certification. It looks absolutely beautiful but comes with a plastic frame. At the discounted price, the smartphone actually is a bang for your buck.
That being said, let me tell you the harsh reality of the curved displays. It is difficult to get a tempered glass protector in the local market and even if you do, it is expensive. Apart from this, the curved glass is more prone to crack and remember the Honor 90 5G has a quad-curved display.
But the phone comes with a protection film and a TPU case out of the box.
Again, I am not saying that the curved displays are bad but I want you to weigh their pros and cons before putting your hard-earned money into it.
There is one thing I didn’t like about the deal is that the company is bundling only a 30W charger while the smartphone supports 66W fast charging.
