Honor 80 GT gaming experience – a beastly performance

Honor 80 GT

When it comes to gaming and performance phones, most people simply think of “hardware stacking”. They think it’s all about the strongest CPU, fast memory, top heat dissipation and that’s it. Many mobile phone brands have also fallen into this mishap, thinking that using the latest chips can make mobile phones with the highest performance. The final product is indeed impressive, but the parameters are also very “gimmick”. This often leads to a very high price that ordinary users can not afford. However, there are a few brands that do not blindly pursue “stacking”. Honor is one of them and has shown it with its latest Honor 80 GT

The company takes into account the actual need of users and balances the price and performance ratio. This makes high-performance mobile phones that are truly suitable for the public. The Honor 80 GT relies on a top level tuning and rational pricing of the classic Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 SoC. It has a balance between high performance and price and redefines the performance mobile phone that is more suitable for the public.

Honor 80 GT – Trinity of Performance

The Honor 80 GT upgrades the performance core from the three dimensions of hardware, architecture, and software. In terms of the core hardware, the Honor 80 GT comes with a super-frame dual-core, including the flagship Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chip. The device also uses a super-frame independent display chip. This device does not use the Snapdragon 8 Gen2, the most powerful Android mobile chip at present. This means that Honor believes that it can optimize the older chip to give a decent performance. 


Powerful hardware performance requires not only a reasonable combination of innovative architectures but also deep tuning at the system level. Honor 80GT did some top-level in-depth adjustments to the GPU Turbo X tech. This brings the gaming performance of the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 flagship chip to full throttle, comparable to the Snapdragon 8 Gen2. It achieves the most stable frame experience with a higher average frame rate, lower jitter rate and worst frame loss.

For the gaming experience, the Honor 80 GT is also innovatively equipped with a super-frame independent display chip. With the cooperation of the three major features of the super-frame engine, low power consumption, and software-hardware joint debugging, it brings low power consumption and smoothness.

Enhanced frame rate

After turning on frame rate enhancement, the Honor 80 GT can play “Honor of Kings” at a full frame rate of 120 frames. The temperature reduces by 4.4°C and the power consumption reduces by 25.6%. While the performance is full, the heat dissipation should not be underestimated. Many mobile phones cannot keep up with heat dissipation, which leads to the frequency reduction of the mobile phone processor, and the game freezes.

In this regard, the Honor 80 GT adopts a new ice-covered cooling system. The system ensures cooling from the bottom so that the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chip and the super-frame display chip can run at full speed at all times. The cooling system is also lighter, thinner, and cooler.

120Hz original picture redefines screen style

In order to have a catchy design, many flagships often use curved screens. This looks beautiful no doubt but it is not as practical as straight screens. This is especially in terms of game control, the direct straight screen has more obvious pros. Honor 80 GT uses a 6.67-inch AMOLED flexible direct screen. This display supports 1.07 billion color display, 100% DCI-P3 cinema-level wide color gamut, 1400nit local peak brightness and 1000nit global peak brightness. The screen quality is on par with present day flagships.

This screen supports a refresh rate of up to 120Hz, a touch sampling rate of up to 300Hz, and 1/8 sub-pixel touch. The screen is smooth and each step is more precise. For video, the Honor 80 GT also brings industry-leading 60FPS motion compensation and full definition image quality enhancement. This brings a solid video look and feel.

In addition to perfect performance and screen, if you want to play games on your mobile phone, you need to optimize the overall design, including body design, vibration, sound, system and other aspects. There is an industry problem in the field of mobile phone frames. For every 1mm reduction in thickness, the heat dissipation capacity will decrease by about 9%. Because of this, many high-performance mobile phones are very heavy. When the weight is higher, the overall user experience becomes lower.

Thanks to the new ice-covered cooling system, the Honor 80 GT achieves a balance between thin and light design and super heat dissipation. The thickness of the body is only 7.9mm, and the weight is only 187g. 

Professional-level adjustments have also been made for the game. For example, it supports 4D game vibration which directly drives the vibration of the linear motor. In addition, the spatial stereo dual speakers bring an immersive experience of listening, identifying, and positioning. It is worth mentioning that the Honor 80 GT can even predict the user’s behaviour of opening the game. It preloads the game app in the background and greatly shortens the game startup time.


To sum up, although the Honor 80 GT does not use the strongest chip, it fully tunes the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chip to decent performance levels. The heat dissipation system ensures that it retains its size and weight. This is an added advantage to this gaming mobile phone. Honor 80 GT users can enjoy a gaming experience close to the top performance mobile phone at a more affordable price As far as the industry is concerned, the launch of the Honor 80 GT has also allowed more friends to see that high-performance mobile phones do not necessarily have to stack hardware.
