For screen, the HONOR 7C features a larger 5.99-inch display, while the 7A comes with a 5.7-inch screen. But the HONOR 7A with a 14.48 cm display is slimmer than the 7C with a 15.21 cm.

For chipset, while the 7A is powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 SoC (SD430), the 7C is powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 SoC (SD450). Which is more powerful? The SD 430, manufactured in the 28nm process, has 8 ARM Cortex-A53 Cores clocked at 1.4 GHz and it comes with the Adreno 505 GPU. So the SD 430 is one of the best budget processors considering its price to performance ratio.

It also includes an Adreno 506 GPU with support for Vulkan and OpenGL ES 3.1. Both chipset could meet your needs, such as calls, web surfing, social networking and light games.
