Honor 7x Review – The budget premium design phone

Honor 7X Review

The Honor 7x is the latest budget smartphone to match your requirements. The smartphone comes with 18:9 aspect ratio screen. The Honor 7X is built with many features and is budget friendly enough for more people to buy it. But does all these features and price makes the Honor 7x competitive enough on the price segment? To find out the answer just check out the Honor 7X review here.

Honor 7x Display

Honor 7X Design

The Honor 7X is designed with metal unibody which makes premium look and feel of the smartphone. With curves on the edges of the phone and dual rear camera with 16MP+2MP placed at the back of the phone, the smartphone looks pretty good at a glance. Fingerprint sensor is also placed at the back of the smartphone which makes it very easy for the users to unlock the phone. The fingerprint sensor is fast to read the finger touch and quickly unlock the phone. Honor 7X comes with 8MP front selfie camera which is placed at the top of the phone. The display size is 5.93-inch with Full-HD and thin borders on the sides of the phone and quite thick border at the bottom and top of the phone.

The loudspeaker, 3.5mm headphones socket, micro-USB port and primary microphone is placed at the bottom of the phone. The power button and the volume buttons are placed at the right side of the phone which we found bit difficult to reach out our thumb to the volume button. The Honor 7X measures a 7.6mm in thickness and weighs 165 grams which feels right in the palm.

Honor 7X specifications, Features & Software

The Honor 7X is fitted with 4GB RAM and 32GB/64GB internal storage which is quite enough for the trend in the smartphone market. It can also be extended to 256GB via microSD in the hybrid dual-SIM slot. Honor 7X runs on Android Nougat 7.0 which takes down the interest towards the phone because the most of the phones are already getting Android Oreo update. In case of OS, Huawei could have done better for Honor 7X. Just like other Huawei smartphones, Honor 7X is also powered by Huawei-made processor and is packed with HiSilicon Kirin 659 SoC.

Honor 7X, just like other Huawei phones runs on Huawei’s custom Emotional UI skin (EMUI 5.1) on top of Android Nougat. The phones gives you an option to choose between layouts with or without app drawer with theme support for customization. Its display is full-HD with 2.5D curved glass and there is no details about the type of protection. The screen is not tough enough to handle a minor scratch. While reviewing Honor 7X we by mistakenly got a minor scratch on the device so use Honor 7X with proper protection. The metal unibody also lose the color while we were reviewing the device. With aspect ratio of 18:9, you can force the app to run on full screen mode. The Honor 7X also comes with apps called HiCare, HiGames, Hi Honor and Honor Community. You get demo versions of Spider-Man: Ultimate Power, Asphalt Nitro, Bubble Bash 3, Modern Combat 4 Zero Hour, and Danger Dash preinstalled, but you can get rid of them to free up space.

Honor 7X Performance & Battery Life

In the Honor 7X review process, we tested the device with various test cases and we found it performing well enough to the price segment it comes with. While playing high-end games we didn’t find any lagging issues and performance was never degraded. The graphics was always upto mark and the visual always came out to its best. Watching movies or videos on 18:9 aspect ratio and Full-HD display was pretty good experience in full screen mode.

Honor 7x antutu score

We notice something in the Honor 7X review process is that the device would get warm while playing games for long and battery would remarkably drain. In our test, we found that the phone lasted only for around 8 hours but for medium use it last for at least a day. The Honor 7X is packed with 3,340mAh battery with few battery saving tweaks which we shouldn’t use all the time. Huawei could have given a more powerful battery to Honor 7X in the same price segment which could have helped the phone last for longer while playing games and watching HD videos.

Honor 7X Camera

The camera of Honor 7X is good enough to capture good pictures but on terms of picture quality it misses out some details of the pictures. Honor 7X camera is easy to use and it comes with different modes to use. The phone comes modes like wide aperture, moving picture, portrait mode and pro mode. Photos taken from Honor 7X looks good but after zooming the picture we notice that Honor 7X misses out on few of the details. The wide aperture mode gives you better depth of field by digitally adding blur based on the aperture value you select.

In our Honor 7X review process, we also noticed that the camera also has some color correction issues. We took a snap of Red color flower but in the picture it shows dark pink color flower, this was disappointing about the camera. The phone takes shots in auto mode but then takes time to sharpen the output which gives a noiseless result but at a cost of over all detail. Shooting at night mode needs a steady hand to capture great picture. The device is capable of recording video at 1080p from primary camera and 720p using selfie camera.

Verdict

In our overall Honor 7X review process, we came to a conclusion that the phone is really good at its price segment. And the device gives a big display with 18:9 aspect ratio. With powerful hardware and quite good camera quality, the device is good to go with. The design of Honor 7X gives the phone a premium look and feel which will temp you to buy the phone. Overall it’s a pretty good phone to go with.
