Huawei Honor 7X
Hello, Guys! Today I’m going to do a full review of Huawei Honor 7X. 2017 has been the year of devices with tall screens and Huawei has been quick to jump onto the trend with a slew of devices porting 18: 9 aspect display and slim bezel-less great design. And it comes with Dual Camera, Kirin 659 processor and 3340 mAh battery so, let’s start-
Design & Build: –
The Honor 7 X really a very good phone. When it comes to economics the huge 6-inch display with a new 18 by 9 aspect ratio really makes the phone a lot smaller then it should be instead of picturing 6-inch devices like this huge mammoth TV size phone. This is actually pretty handy and useful with one hand because of it’s slimmer bezels on all sides of the phone and 80% screen to body ratio.
It looks so beautiful from the back. The Huawei Honor 7X uses sleek unibody metal design. Whenever you hold this device you will get a different feeling. The phone weighs about 165 grams only so it is lightweight. The phone is so stunning in terms of the design department.
The backside of the phone, you have dual camera setup with LED flash and you have fingerprint scanner which is very accurate and fast. The bottom side of the phone, you have a 3.5mm headphone jack, a micro USB 2.0 port and speaker grille. On the front, you have 18 by 9 beautiful display, 8-megapixel selfie shooter and notification LED light. The left side of the phone, you have volume keys and power keys and right side you have Hybrid SIM card tray.
The Huawei Honor 7X has a 5.93-inch 1080p IPS screen, 18 by 9 full view display which claims to hold as like a 5.5-inch phone. It is a very beautiful display. Honor has spent much time in promoting this full view display to bring immersive effect including video automatic full view display. The sunlight legibility is good and the display gets very bright and you won’t have any troubles doing even in direct sunlight. Video enhancement 1500 Apps compatibility test, top 200 games compatibility test, 27 Anti wrong touching gestures and 66 applications seen.
The Honor 7X has feature-rich experience in the cameras, you have all the great features with the Huawei P10 and Mate 10 coming at a budget price. You get many modes like Portrait mode, wide aperture mode and you also get the moving picture mode and you have access to a full-blown Pro manual mode where you can adjust the sensor exposure time for really great low-light shots. If you have a tripod for instance but where the camera really excels in is with the wide aperture mode as all while iPhones and of course you can play around with it after you’ve taken the images readjust the focus and add various filters to it and the sensor with good lighting.
Generally, the camera does very well in good lighting conditions shots especially if using that some wide aperture mode. Shooting on out zone is a real joy with the Honor 7X a very good, very wide range camera experience for a low budget price.
Even I really surprised it even without the second camera dedicated to the portrait modes, the portrait mode on the Honor 7X was not better just this good as the Honor 5X. Moving on to the Indoor shots, if you have a good lighting like in the more the shots you look almost as good as the day shots as well. But moving on to really low-light shots the camera produces more noise and the f/2.2 aperture now really start to show this is an okay low-light phone.
Moving on to the Front camera, it has 8-megapixel camera give you decent experience at this price.it may not be the best one out there which didn’t get the job done and it does also have that portrait mode and very good beauty mode. In the low-light, it this illuminated the screen to work as a flashlight you get more light and better low-light shots.
The video quality on the Honor 7X was better than I expected, the full HD video record with the phone is not as shaky as I thought even without optical stabilization and audio quality was also good. Indoor videos quality and selfie footage are good, voice quality is also good.
Performance & Memory: –
The Honor 7X is powered by HiSilicon Kirin 659 which clocked at Octa-Core Up to 2.36GHz processor with 4GB of RAM and 32GB internal storage for the base model which is expandable up to 256GB via microSD card.
Everyday tasks have great RAM management with 15-20 apps open in the background and you can switch between them simultaneously without any issues. The Kirin 659 is a very fast chip as fast as the Snapdragon 625. If you are an owner of the Honor 6X then this is a must-have upgrade if you feel your phone is slowing down with time because the Kirin 659 definitely optimized better RAM speeds, better multitasking management and high CPU clock speeds to deliver much better overall experience than the Kirin 650 and the Kirin 655 in previous models.
It has a good combination to handle the games and this phone is capable to handle games like King of Glory. This phone is not for heavy games you can play only medium graphics games like CSR Racing and the New Battle Royale. Moving to the benchmark, which is just over 60,000 scores and the Geekbench test score for single-core 857 scores and for multi-core 3812 scores.
First of all, I want to mention that this phone will absolutely 100% get an Android Oreo updates as our own phones have two years software updates. EMUI has definitely come a long way in delivering much better software experience. You can customize pretty much anything you want from it you have free wallpapers. You can have an absurd display on full screen or use the 16 by 9 aspect ratio if you want to end this customizable from display settings. You can have the notifications light-up the screen as well and you can choose to alter the navigation keys or if you want, you can also hide them. So, EMUI has both and definitely delivers a better software experienced in most phones these days.
The Honor 7X has a 3340 milliamp-hours battery. If you are an owner of the Honor 6X you will be very glad to know that the great battery life returns in the Honor 7X as well you easily get from 7 to 110 hours of screen on time depending on what you’re doing. If you’re playing more games then you will get around 7 hours of screen time but if you’re doing mostly browsing and watching Videos then you may punch the 10 hours mark. This is an excellent battery life. You can charge the full battery for around 2 hours with the supplied charger.
Finally, the Honor 7X is a good budget phone. Full HD display is excellent, daily driver performance is great, battery life is good, build quality is awesome and a feature-packed camera which delivers a great experience. It has also some shortcomings like the micro USB port in favour of USB Type-C, you don’t have Gyroscope, there is no 4K video recording and you can’t play heavy games on this phone. So, in my opinion, the Huawei Honor 7X is a good phone in this price segment if you have no issue with these shortcomings then you have to buy this phone.
