Honor 7X Smartphone Review

 

6-inch 18:9 Android for $199. Honor has taken a page out of the current crop of flagship smartphones to deliver one of the most compelling Android smartphones yet for under $200 USD. Update: GPS and camera tests added

relatively accurate colors and high contrast ; thin design, high screen-to-body ratio ; fast fingerprint reader ; dual-SIM w/ MicroSD ; very inexpensive ; 18:9 FHD display

CPU and GPU performance benefits are minimal over the Honor 6X ; apparent brightness drops if not facing directly at the screen ; slow display response times; more ghosting ; no CDMA version for Sprint or Verizon ; no NFC, IR, 802.11ac, or Wi-Fi...

Android smartphones in the $200 to $250 USD range are quite common from Chinese manufacturers like Leagoo, Xiaomi, Bluboo, Oppo, and Vivo. What makes the Honor 7X so special compared to the deluge of other cheap alternatives is the harder worldwide...

Honor 7X review

 

It's time to welcome 18:9 to the mid-range

Vibrant 18:9 display ; Premium feel metal design

One storage option ; Doesn't use USB-C

The Honor 7X looks to have all the makings of a great mid-range smartphone, and the ability to be able to get an 18:9 screen with so much potential is a cherry on the cake.

Honor 7X review

 

The Honor 7X looks better than phones costing twice as much, and performs just as well too.

Amazing price ; Beautiful style ; Comfortable to hold ; Good camera ; Big, 18:9 aspect ratio screen

No NFC for Android Pay ; MicroUSB feels a little 2016 ; No Android 8.0 at launch

Taken only at face value, the good-looking Honor 7X doesn’t appear to be a $200 smartphone. Add in a decent, fun-feature packed camera, solid performance, and a great screen, and you’ll question the price even more. Yet it does only cost a bargain $200.

Honor 7X review: Better than its predecessor and priced 20 percent less

 

Earlier this year I posted a full review of the Honor 6X and we now have its successor that offers a better processor, improved dual rear cameras, and large 18:9 display at a price $50 less than the Honor 6X. It's one of my best cheap smartphones for...

High quality design, fit, and finish ; 18:9 display and minimal bezels ; Portrait mode for rear and front cameras ; Fairly stock EMUI 5.1 UI ; Extremely low price ; MicroSD expansion card ; Long battery life

No NFC for wireless payments ; No water resistance

Huawei Honor 7X

 

The Huawei Honor 7X is an excellent unlocked phone that boasts flagship-level features at an affordable $200 price.

Affordable. Sleek build. Crisp edge-to-edge screen. Solid overall performance. Capable dual cameras.

Average battery. No dual-band Wi-Fi or USB-C. Heavy UI layer.

At $200, the Honor 7X is priced similarly to the Moto G5 Plus. It has a sleek build that incorporates a tall, 18:9 aspect ratio to maximize screen real estate, along with solid overall performance, and decent camera capabilities. The G5 Plus,...

Honor 7X

 

Honor 7X hands-on: Bezel-less on a budget | Trusted Reviews

All-screen design for a low price ; Fine 6-inch 18:9 screen ; Camera reasonably capable

Second camera features somewhat gimmicky ; So-so battery life ; EMUI still heavy-handed

The Honor 7X offers the kind of all-screen kicks that we’ve only really seen from expensive flagship phones to date. It’s not without its compromises, but after the disappointingly generic Honor 6X we’re glad the brand has tried something daring with...

Honor 7X review: The new mid-range smartphone king with an 18:9 display

 

At only £270, the Honor 7X is the cheapest 18:9 smartphone on the market. It has a gorgeous design and a competent dual-lens camera, too

18:9 display for under £300 ; Stunning design and build quality ; Good dual-lens camera

Below-par battery life ; MicroUSB port ; No NFC

For only a little more, you can buy the Honor 9 which at only £308 is a ridiculously good considering we reviewed it at £380. If an 18:9 display isn’t your must-have, then get the Honor 9 instead. But both are fantastic phones that offer unbelievable...

Honor 7X review

 

It has a six-inch 18:9 screen, a metal body and dual cameras, thus ticking some major boxes for a lot of buyers. Here's our Honor 7X review.

Honor 7X review

 

Big-screen thrills, no price spills

18:9 aspect screen at a great price ; All-metal build looks the part ; Camera isn't bad when you feed it enough light

No NFC means no contactless payments ; MicroUSB charging is really old hat now ; No Android Oreo at launch

This screen-filling smartphone doesn't cost a fortune, and although it's got a few niggling issues, it's hard to complain too much given the price.

Honor 7X Review: The most gorgeous mid-range mobile?

 

We've seen plenty of premium phones this year sporting a sexy edge-to-edge screen design, but now Honor is bringing that style to the mid-range with the Honor 7X. But it's more than just a pretty face,…

Premium design ; Strong battery life ; Feature-packed cameras ; Solid screen

Micro USB ; Occasional stutter

At £269 this sleek and sexy handset offers very strong value for money. You get a feature-packed dual-lens camera, attractive full-sized screen and a solid overall user experience, for less cash than a lot of other mid-range mobiles.
