Expect more premium features from the successor of Honor 6X, the Honor 7X. The Huawei Honor device offers smartphone users a broad range of exciting features almost similar to its high-end counterparts, Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro, at a budget-friendly price. The Honor 7X delivers an impressive 18:9 full HD bezel-less touch display, making it as one of the most attractive features awarded to budget-conscious users. It surpasses the Honor 6X model in terms of minimalist design, comfortability, and functionality.
Honor 7x Review – Premium Features at Affordable Rate
The Handset Design
The Honor 7X features a smooth aluminum matte design with a flat surface at the back which makes it somehow uncomfortable at your palm. However, this could be an excellent option if you are searching for a slimmer profile. The fingerprint sensor is found on the rear portion of the phone which is more accessible when you’re holding it. But if your phone is sitting on top of the desk, unlocking it using the screen seems more appropriate.
You can find the headphone slot, audio speaker and a micro USB port at the bottom of the phone. Despite the fact that some phone features have been compromised, the Honor 7X manages to accommodate a larger screen display, having an 18:9 aspect ratio which is normally found in flagship smartphones. The 5.9-inch screen almost reaches the far end of the device, but that’s to be anticipated since the Honor 7X carries an extra-wide screen. Additionally, expect bolder and sharper images are appearing from its high resolution 2160 X 1080p screen with a pixel density of 408 ppi.
Honor 7X is packed with Android 7.0 Nougat and supported with HiSilicon Kirin 659 processor. It’s an awesome combination which enables users to enjoy full HD videos and online games without crashing. However, it’s also Sad to know that many mobile apps will run on a default 16:9 display and you will be required to switch it to a full-screen mode.
Aside from midnight black, lilac pink and coral blue, Huawei launched its newest Honor 7X red version last February 14 globally. They have also announced their upcoming software upgrade that features a face unlocking capability for all premier devices to be released this year.
Reliable Battery Power
Honor 7X survives the day with its best-performing 3,340mAh, considering this device uses an 18:9 screen. It would last for about 9 hours of continuous use, long enough to enjoy watching videos, checking emails and playing online games. For heavier and more intense use, you still need a battery pack to keep you going. The charging capability seems to be the major drawback of Honor 7X since you can only charge this phone using a micro USB charger unlike new mid-range smartphones today where many of them come with a USB-C port.
Average Camera Performance
The dual camera feature of Honor 7X is impressive, having a 16-megapixel rear view shooter and an eight-megapixel for selfies. Photos taken appear to be great during daytime but not under poor lighting conditions. Shooting time may consume time as the phone requires rebooting first then focusing the camera on your subject. A two-megapixel sensor is useful when using the wide-aperture mode which locates the edges of your subject and blurs everything around it.
