Price List: HONOR Phones under 10000 in India

In 2018, HONOR 7C and HONOR 7A are the new highly competitive entry-level phones of HONOR brand. The two phones which were launched in China in April and March respectively were available in India in May for below Rs 10,000. Both belong to HONOR 7 series, they are almost similar in terms of camera setup, screen resolution and battery capacity, while differ only in their chipsets and screen size. So we will focus on a complete comparison of their chipset today.

HONOR Phones under 10000 in India

First of all, let's take a look at a simple introduction to the two phones.

  • • The HONOR 7C has a 5.99-inch display, dual rear cameras, 8MP front camera, Snapdragon 450 processor, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, 3,000mAh battery and Android 8.0.
  • • The HONOR 7A has a 5.7-inch display, dual rear camera and 8MP front camera, Snapdragon 430 processor, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, 3,000mAh battery and Android 8.0.

And below is the list of two different chipset specs which may interest you to know.

Chipset Snapdragon 450 Snapdragon 430
Manufacturing Process 14 nm 28nm
Architecture 64-bit 64-bit
CPU ( Central Processing Unit) 8 ARM x A53 @ 1.8 GHz 8 ARM x A53 @1.4 GHz
GPU ( Graphics Processing Unit) Qualcomm Adreno 506 Qualcomm Adreno 505
Cellular Modem X9 LTE (Download: 300 Mbps,
Upload: 150 Mbps)

Display Support Up to 1920 x 1200 @ 60fps Up to 1080p external display
Camera Up to 13 MP + 13 MP Dual Camera, 21 MP single camera Up to 21 MP camera
Video Capture and Playback Full HD (1080 x 1920) @ 60 FPS Full HD (1080 x 1920) @ 60 FPS
DSP (Digital Signal Processor) Qualcomm Hexagon 546 Qualcomm Hexagon 536
Storage SD 3.0 and eMMC 5.1 SD 3.0 (UHS-I)
Charging Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0

Snapdragon 430 is a slightly older than Snapdragon 450. From above table, significant differences were found between the two chipset in three aspects: Manufacturing Process, GPU, and DSP.

Compared to the faster Adreno 506, the 505 is manufactured in the older 28nm process and offers less raw performance. In other words, the Snapdragon 450 has the ante which is a more power-efficient 14 nm process that at the very least, allows for better battery life and higher clock speeds. The Snapdragon 450 chipset is more powerful than the Snapdragon 430 chipset.

Thus, both as an above average chipset in the price segment, Snapdragon 450 will give users a much more consistent performance and lesser throttling.

Different from CPU and GPU, the DSP excels in executing at low power such as sound and image enhancements, advanced camera and sensor capabilities, as well as signal-processing tasks. No doubt that the Hexagon DSP from Qualcomm Technologies has an efficient mobile architecture that delivers the most performance per MHz. Don't be too concerned.

It is worth saying again that HONOR 7A and 7C get the same cameras setup (13 MP Rear Camera and 8 MP Front Camera) and both support face and fingerprint unlock. Meanwhile, some interesting features like Histen's 3D sound effects, a Ride Mode and a Party Mode, can be found in the both.

Well. If you are looking for a smartphone with a bigger screen and a slightly faster processor, then go for the HONOR 7C. If you are looking for a compact smartphone, then go with the HONOR 7A.
