Budget? What features are most important to you in a phone?

You don't know how much money you want to spend? Is there a reason you settled on these two phones then?

If you can stretch to another £15 then Amazon have the Huawei Honor Play for £245 which is an excellent phone for the price, with a flagship grade processor compared to the midrange ones inside the phones you're currently looking at. The extra power will probably result in more updates over time and keep the phone feeling snappier for longer.

More powerful than your original two choices, less powerful than the Honor Play. If you can stretch I would still go for the Play, if not the 8X.

OK help me lastly choose between Motorola g6, galaxy a8 2018 and honor play. Except this time I don't care about processing power, screen size and ram. I care about camera capabilities front and back, weather resistancy (an important one) and updated meaning with latest android version, most likely to receive future updates. If you have a phone that's outclasses all these and corresponds to my criteria and budget of around £230 please tell me I would be so grateful. So far I've concluded that motorola was best but I'm a bit uncomfortable with that brand.

All phones are weather resistant, the Motorola's designation as "splash proof" is borderline meaningless. The best for water resistance is the Galaxy A8, it's the only one with an official IP rating and can survive a drop in water. Camera quality across all three is going to be similarly unremarkable but I would expect either the Samsung or Huawei to come out on top, and the Huawei is the only one that can shoot 4K video if that interests you. For updates, the Honor Play will almost certainly win as it is essentially a last-gen flagship internally, it will receive support for a similar amount of time as their big name phones like the Mate 10 and P20 series, while the other two are distinctly budget oriented mid-rangers with less investment justified and weaker processors.



So yeah, based on all criteria I would probably go Play>A8>G6 overall, or A8>Play>G6 if waterproofing and display quality are your absolute top priorities (the A8 uses one of the Samsung's excellent AMOLED panels, the display on the Play is very good but Samsung simply make the best screens on the market) but if longevity is still your main concern, nothing beats the Play at this price point.point

Not much I can do about that really.

It's more that your P10 Lite is tiny by modern standards, the Honor Play is about average size for a 2018 phone.
