Honor 8 Pro, a great choice for gamers

Posted by 148Apps Staff on May 22nd, 2017

Honor is making strides to bring its brand to the forefront of mobile gaming with its latest phone, the Honor 8 Pro. The Pro sets itself apart from its predecessor, the Honor 8, with a host of premium updates that boost the device’s graphical and processing capabilities. Let’s take a look at what makes the Honor 8 Pro the perfect mobile gaming gadget.

Screen Resolution

With a 5.7 inch, 1440x2560 QHD display, the Honor 8 Pro features crystal-clear visuals. You can enjoy your games with the highest level of detail, whether you're gaming indoors or outside. The display, paired with the Honor 8 Pro’s impressive graphic capabilities, make this a prime device for mobile VR, too.

Chip Set & Performance

The Honor 8 Pro truly shines in its incredible graphics processing abilities. The phone boasts a Kirin 960 processor that features four 2.4GHz cores and four 1.8GHz cores. Still not sold? The phone also is packed with 6GB RAM to really help the phone glide through intensive tasks and handle a lot of multitasking.

The phone’s chipset makes it one of the best phones for gaming performance, especially as mobile games continue to advance rapidly.

Playing Time

Impressive mobile gaming performance doesn’t mean a whole lot when you have to be plugged into an outlet to enjoy it. That’s not a problem for the Honor 8 Pro, which has a battery life of 1.5 days under high performance, and 2 full days under normal workloads.

If you’re a mobile gamer looking to make the jump to Android, you can’t do any better than the Honor 8 Pro. The phone provides unbeatable performance at a price tag that won’t bust your budget.

Only a month since the Easter update, VC Mobile is giving Creature Quest players another mother load of bonuses. This time it’s to celebrate Mother’s Day, observed during May in over 100 countries around the world.

The first perks to pick up in the update are the check-in rewards. From May 11-18, logging in to Creature Quest daily gets you loot including tokens, battle coins, essence and energy. When you log in, you’ll also notice the loading and homepage screens have been adorned with gifts and flowers in honour of Mother’s Day.

There’s a new quest called Mommy Meowgic to complete, too, during which you’ll barter with a brand new Legendary creature – the Sphinx. You’re rewarded for finishing the quest with a chance of acquiring a Rare, Epic or Legendary critters including a Lizard Man Archer, and Mummy. The quest is only available for a limited time, so be quick.

If you want to net yourself a Sphinx, you’ll have the chance to do so in the Mother’s Day Summon offers event. From May 12-18, any Diamond Summon has the chance of revealing a Sealed With A Kiss box. Inside will be 1 of 8 creatures – four Epic (Dark Elf, Griffin, Siren and Harpy) and four Legendary (Shadow Temptress, Medusa, Sorceress and Sphinx). Good luck!

Along with the seasonal events, VC Mobile has introduced a new time-saving feature. Quick Questing means you can skip to the end of a quest you’ve completed in the past, and still get some of the rewards. It’s not free, however, so make sure you have sufficient battle coins and energy if you want to use it – especially for more difficult quests.

If you’re looking for a colourful new RPG, you can join the ever-changing quest maps of Creature Quest by downloading it for free from Google Play and the App Store.
