Honor 7, LINK +
User communication experience is key to the success of a smartphone. Nowadays, users find it imperative to be connected to their loved ones and expect an enriched communication experience from their smartphone. Huawei, being a strong technology player in the 3G/4G telecom network, and having accumulated years of expertise in network design, has designed the honor 7 keeping this need for superior communication in mind. The honor 7, launched recently in India at Rs 24,999, offers an intelligent feature called Link+, to enrich the communication experience.
What is Link+?
An advanced intelligent feature, Link+ identifies and switches the device to the best network time and network cell so that the user can get optimized data speeds and interruption-free signals for their communication.
Here’s what Link+ comprises:
WIFI+: Provides a smart network switch between WIFI and data network automatically to provide best data speeds. Most importantly, with Wi-Fi+ even if Wi-Fi is turned off, if the phone recognizes a known Wi-Fi connection, it will automatically make a connection.
Signal+: This provides smart connectivity to the best network cell available in the location, with an intelligent and fast cell switching technology Roaming+: Similar to the Single plus Roaming+, this provide an intelligent and fast cell switching during roaming.
Let’s understand the above features in detail:
Wi-Fi+ This feature assists the user by automatically selecting the best among available mobile data and Wi-Fi networks for smoother internet experience. In other words, the devices checks if Wi-Fi connection is good or Mobile data and provides better data connectivity to the user. For example, if Wi-Fi connection is poor, then it automatically switches back to Mobile data and vice-versa. The following image shows the switch to mobile data even when the WIFI is available because of its poor quality
If a user navigates to the Wi-Fi settings page, poor connection prompt will be shown.
To enjoy the advantages of Wi-Fi+, the user will have to turn this option on in Wi-Fi settings. When device comes into the range of known Wi-Fi connections, the device will automatically connect to Wi-Fi. What’s noteworthy is even if a user has turned off his Wi-Fi, if the phone finds a stable Wi-Fi connection, it will turn the function on and establish a connection.
Signal+ is enabled on the phone by default; there is no need for user intervention in the operation. Signal+ helps a user to get best network by switching between different signal transmitters in the network and thus assisting in better network experience on phone.
There are several cases where the Signal+ will serve as an aid to a user. For instance, when user is at a low coverage region of a cell; Signal+ will check the coverage of other cells and switch automatically and quickly. Also when moving at high speeds say in a train or cars, Signal+ will switch intelligently among different cells to provide continuity in voice call and data services. This is definitely a step ahead in network performance compared to non- Signal+ devices.
Similar to Signal+, Roaming + is enabled on the honor 7 by default. On arriving in a roaming region, Roaming+ searches and finds the best and suitable roaming network cell and connects to it for a seamless user experience. In comparison to other smartphones available in the market today, we see the honor 7 is far ahead when it comes to offering users a top-notch communication experience.
