The recent launch of the Honor 7X is sure to continue Huawei’s recent record of great products, with awesome specs at unbelievable prices. Here are seven reasons why the 7x is the absolute must-have phone.
Screen: That gorgeous 5.93-inch full-HD+ resolution screen that takes up 82.9% of the available real estate on the front of the phone. Yes, Huawei gives the 7x an 18:9 aspect ratio infinity display which makes viewing anything on that screen in any kind of lighting condition an absolute pleasure. The 7x comes with a 2160×1080 LCD panel, with the all-important oleophobic coating. It ticks all the right boxes for outdoor visibility, color vibrancy, and viewing angles.
Design: A metal unibody that looks premium is easy to hold and makes heads turn. The Honor series has a number of good-looking phones and the 7X fits right in with the best of them. The layout of the buttons and fingerprint scanner is both convenient and aesthetically appealing.
Camera: The back hosts a 16-megapixel sharpshooter with phase-detection autofocus behind a f/2.2 lens, backed by a 2-megapixel secondary sensor for depth-sensing and portrait mode. The camera is a real winner in all kinds of light conditions, though it comes into its own in portrait mode. In particular, the 7X manages impressive dynamic range from daylight shots. In the front, there’s an 8-megapixel setup that’s also capable of capturing portrait mode shots. Noise is absent from selfies and edge detection is spot on.
Battery: Powering the device is a 3,340 mAh battery which is about the most powerful you can get in this price range. The phone also comes equipped with a host of optimization options that ensure your device keeps going despite you doing a bunch of energy-sapping activities like playing games, shooting and watching videos, using Google Maps to navigate etc.
Software: The Honor 7X continues the glorious Huawei tradition of being loaded to the gills with software and apps that make the powerful hardware even better to use. The 7X runs on EMUI 5.1 on top of Android Nougat. You get the option to choose between layouts with and without an app drawer. The UI also includes theme support. The phone also comes with Honor’s support app called HiCare, and HiGame, a gaming app store. There are also the Web shortcuts 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.
Hardware: Driving this little beauty is a HiSilicon Kirin 659, the same processor powering the Honor 9i. It is an octa-core chip with four cores clocked at 2.36GHz and the other four clocked at 1.7GHz. The phone has 4GB of RAM and you have a choice of either 32GB or 64GB of internal storage. External storage can be expanded up to 256GB using a microSD card in the hybrid dual-SIM slot.
Price: We have as always left the best for the last. All this—the looks, the power, and the performance come to you for just Rs 12,999. No, that’s not a typo. The Honor 7x is actually under Rs 13,000. If you needed another reason to buy the phone. You have it now!
