The province of Bataan is a must-visit site for anyone looking to have a rich experience soaking up the sun and enjoying the beach waves in its many resorts. But no vacation is complete without a smartphone to capture all your memories in the finest quality possible.

Luckily, there's a new phone on the market that can capture your everyday adventures in outstanding detail.

During our recent trip to La Jolla Luxury Beach Resort in Bagac, Bataan, we tested the new HONOR 90 5G, the latest smartphone device from HONOR Philippines that features a 200MP Flagship Camera. 

Right from the bat, we can squarely say that HONOR 90 5G will do your vacation shots justice thanks to its 200MP main camera with a 1/1.4-inch sensor, and its 12MP ultra-wide and macro camera and a 2MP Depth Camera.

These allow the phone to have a large sensor and a big aperture, giving it quality zooming capabilities and accuracy for gauging distance.

PhilSTAR L!fe tested the phone's camera by taking various pictures of the gorgeous beach resort, its surrounding natural sceneries, and even the marvelous glow of the setting sun—all of which displayed its effectiveness in being a worthy gadget for traveling.

But how does the front camera fare?

HONOR 90 5G introduces the new Portrait Mode in its 50MP selfie camera, where you can take pictures of yourself with well-defined facial features, accurate skin tones, and an authentic out-of-focus blur that naturally blends the background with the subject.

The phone's camera is also especially useful for content creators. It has a multi-video recording feature where you can make use of both the front and rear cameras at the same time, enabling you to record both yourself and the subject right in front of you!

It can also help vloggers streamline their workflows as this phone employs the power of artificial intelligence for video denoising and video mode recommendations, as well as for generating a social media-ready 15-second video with just a few taps.

Aside from the innovations in picture-taking, the device is touted to be the "best phone for the eyes" because of its eye comfort features, earning it a Flicker Free Certification from TÜV Rheinland, an organization focused on testing technologies for their safety.

Equipped with a Pulse Width Modulation Dimming frequency of 3840Hz, HONOR 90 5g has the "world's highest frequency technology" that can minimize the strain it puts on users’ eyes when it is set at low brightness, making it comfortable to use in dim environments.

The phone is 7.80 mm thin and scales about 183g. It comes in three colors: Midnight Black, Emerald Green, and Diamond Silver.

In terms of battery life, it is embedded with a large 5000mAh battery and can provide up to 19.5 hours of continuous local video streaming. You also won't have to wait long for it to be charged as it can restore up to 45 percent of its battery in just 15 minutes.

If you're wondering, does a smartphone with such an outstanding camera also come with an astounding price tag? HONOR 90 5G retails for P24,990, and you can pre-order it from Aug. 16 to 25. You can also get a free JBL Flip 6 worth Php 7,499 at select HONOR Outlets, as well as in Lazada, Shopee, and TikTok Shop.

With its durable design, long battery life, and excellent camera specs, you can take it with you wherever you go without having to worry about it running out of power.
