Honor 7X review


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

Vibrant 18:9 display ; Premium feel metal design ; Under AED 1000 price

Camera is just ok ; Stuttering performance ; Older MicroUSB port

The Honor 7X is the first mid-range device to bring an 18:9 ratio display to the market, and that’s impressive considering the price point.

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


The Honor 7X was released in the USA on December 5 2017 and was initially geared towards the lower-midrange market ($150-$250). At publishing time,...

Good build quality ; Large display ; Functional bokeh camera ; Aggressively priced

Honor 7X initial review: Adding 18:9 screen X factor to the affordable phone market


It's not just top-end flagship phones that are getting taller, skinnier and therefore easier to handle: the Honor 7X, which is expected to launch on 5

Although there's no official UK price just yet, a little digging online reveals that the Honor 7X ought to launch in and around the £279-299 price range (as that's how much you can buy it for right now on various channels). That's quite a bargain for a...

Honor 7X review: The most phone you can get for under $200


The Honor 7X may be priced like a budget phone, but with an 18:9 screen, slim-bezel design, and all-metal enclosure, you might mistake it for a premium one.

Brilliant 18:9 display rivals phones priced four times as much. ; Camera app is packed with features and options. ; Kirin processor keeps apps and games humming.

MicroUSB port is a pain to use. ; Camera quality hasn't improved much over the 6X.

If you're on a strict budget and don't mind microUSB, the Honor 7X should definitely be on your shortlist of handsets. Keep in mind that it's an international unlocked phone, so Verizon and Sprint customers are out of luck (and anytime soon). But if it...

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...
