The Honor 7X is the newest smartphone to sport a 18:9 aspect ratio screen. The 7X brings this new big display format to Honor’s X series. Honor seems to have loaded the 7X with quite a lot of features, but is that enough to make it the new bestseller in its price band? We try to answer that question.l

The Honor 7X is a well-built smartphone with good battery life but loses out to the competition when it comes to the camera
The Price for the Honor 7X was announced on 5th December. The device is available in two variants in India – 4GB RAM and 32GB storage priced at Rs 12,999 and 4GB RAM with 64GB storage priced at Rs 15,999.
Thickness: 7.6mm Weight: 165 grams CPU: Kirin 659 Octa-Core CPU OS & UI: Android 7.1 with EMUI 5.1 Display: 5.93-inch 18:9 display Display resolution: 2160x1080p Rear Camera: 16MP+2MP Front camera: 8MP RAM: 4GB Built-in storage: 32/64GB. NOTE: the review unit we received has 128GB built-in storage Battery: 3340mAh
Speaking of the build, the Honor 7X is as premium as the Mi A1 and that isn't a bad thing. The smartphone has a metal build with curved edges. It is ever so slightly taller than the Mi A1 and thanks to the 18:9 form factor, it has thin bezels on the sides. The top and bottom bezels are quite thick and the phone has an attractive design. These bezels are thin enough that they add to the aesthetics of the smartphone and yet thick enough so that your palm doesn’t accidentally touch the screen if you are trying to reach one of the top corners during single-handed use. The top and bottom bezels are thick enough to comfortably hold the phone in landscape mode for watching movies and playing games. At the back, you have the fingerprint sensor conveniently located. You also have the dual-camera setup which is protruding. I wish the dual camera setup was as seamless as it was on the Honor 8 Pro.
The right side of the smartphone has the power button and the volume rocker. The buttons are clicky and feel good. At the bottom, we have the micro-USB port for charging, which is a bummer in a USB-C dominated market. You also have the headphone jack and the speaker grill on either side of the USB port. Speaking of the design, the smartphone has the standard candy bar 18:9 design we’d expect in this price and the curved edges make it comfortable to hold with one hand. Although reaching all corners of the phone isn’t easy with single-handed use, it is fairly ergonomic. Overall, the build and design of the Honor 7X is good. The 18:9 display is a good addition when compared to other phones in the same price range.
As we’ve mentioned above, the smartphone has an 18:9 display for watching content. We faced no issue with the display on every day use. Apps that haven’t been optimized for the new aspect ratio show a black bar at the bottom with the option to stretch it to full screen. There are however some apps and games, like Asphalt 8, that run in full screen and take advantage of the new display. There are some 18:9 specific videos on YouTube as well and if you are watching the new Avengers: Infinity War trailer on the device, you can simply pinch to fit and enjoy the trailer in full screen.
Other apps like WhatsApp, Facebook, Gmail, Chrome, etc. work well on the new aspect ratio. No complaints here.
If there is a complaint it’s with the audio quality from the speaker. Watching YouTube content including movie trailers, cinematic video game trailers, talk shows, Ted Talks, etc. is very underwhelming. The background score of the movie trailer and the vocals seem muddled. The same can be said for music videos.
When playing games like Asphalt 8, the audio from the speaker is underwhelming too and sounds muddled. When taking calls on the speakerphone, the voice is clear but the maximum volume is lower than what I’d expect from a smartphone. Coming back to the display, it has a maximum luminance of 417 lux. It isn’t the brightest display out there and sunlight visibility does suffer, but if you are going to read web pages or Kindle books, you should be fine with auto brightness. You may want to bump up the brightness manually while watching movies though. For those of you finicky about the colour temperature of the device, you can manually change it between default, warm and cold. You also have the ability to manually adjust it to your preference. There's even an eye comfort mode that essentially filters out blue light. Overall, the display is very good and supports a pretty wide colour gamut. You will enjoy watching movies on it, but audio is an issue.
The Honor 7X has the company’s own EMUI overlaying Android Nougat. The UI has some interesting features. If you like, you can have an iOS-like layout where all the apps are present on the home screen. Or if you are one that prefers an app drawer, then that option is there too. The phone comes with a bunch of preloaded apps and games. There is one pre-loaded app I found quite interesting. In the tools folder, there is a Mirror app. It essentially uses the front-facing camera of the smartphone and you can zoom in as well if you want. It has a bunch of mirror frames to choose from and in case you want to check out your hair before that big date, I suggest you give this app a shot instead of opening the front-facing camera. There is another interesting feature on the phone called WiFi bridge. Through this, the current WiFI network can be shared with other devices. This is very useful in a scenario where you have access to WiFi on only one device, but need the access for other devices too. Do remember, this feature on the Honor 7X is a battery guzzler.
Overall, the UI is fairly fluid and if you have used an Honor phone in the past, you will feel right at home. There are times when the UI stuttered during heavy multitasking and a few times when Facebook didn’t respond, but apart from that, the average user shouldn’t face any issues.
Let’s talk about the call performance. The audio is crisp and clear at both ends. The earpiece is loud and there is audio leaking when it is at full volume. So, if you are in a car and the earpiece is at full volume, the person sitting next to you can easily eavesdrop on the conversation. At about 60% volume, the earpiece works perfectly well. There are also some places in my house where the network is an issue but the Honor 7X managed to grab better cellular reception than other phones in this case. Running everyday apps like Facebook, Whatsapp, YouTube, Netflix, and more is a breeze. The smartphone multitasks well and stutters only when you run heavy apps and games back to back. The biggest downside to the performance of the smartphone was gaming. Casual games like Farm Hero Saga ran well but graphically heavy games like Asphalt 8 showed patchy framerates. When there are a bunch of cars on screen, the framerate really drops. If you are one that wants to play graphically heavy games on the device, you may want to look at other options. When it comes to benchmarks, the performance is at par with the Honor 9i and this isn’t surprising since both phones are powered by the same SoC. Here is a look at the benchmark scores of the Honor 7X against some competing devices.
Using the phone for about a week, the smartphone can last you a little more than a 9 to 5 day with above average use. With brightness on auto, and 100% battery at 10am the phone was at about 20% battery when I got home at 8PM, which is good considering usage. We made many calls and sent many texts during the day, clicked some images, watched YouTube videos, Facebooking and some light gaming. The smartphone lasted for about eight and a half hours on the PC Mark Battery Test, which isn’t the best in this category but it isn’t bad either.
When you consider a 15K smartphone, you will look at devices like the Moto G5 Plus and the Mi A1 to name a few. The Honor 7x has a better display than the Mi A1, which means that you can enjoy movies on it a lot more. The 18:9 display also helps in this regard. However, the output from the speaker of the Mi A1 is far superior. When it comes to everyday performance, the phone is snappy and can give the Mi A1 a run for its money. Gaming performance on the Honor 7X could have been better.
For Rs 13,000 device, the Honor 7X isn’t the best option out there. It has a great display and good battery life and the overall performance is average at best. It loses out to the Mi A1 as far as the camera is concerned and graphically heavy games like Asphalt 8 stutter on the device. You can consider it if you aren’t a heavy smartphone user and like reading content or watching movies on the go, as the display on the smartphone is indeed good. But if the camera is something you are finicky about and aren't a fan of skinned OSes, then you may want to consider your options.

Honor 7X review: Mid-range smartphone with great display, dual-rear cameras that can take on Xiaomi, Moto
Source: Indian Express , Dec 6, 2017
Honor is Huawei’s online-only brand and while smartphones from the company have been around in the Indian market for the last few years, the vendor is yet break into the top five. Unlike India, Huawei is already in top three globally, competing with the likes of Samsung and Apple and claims to have a strong performance in European markets as well. Honor 7X is the latest offering from the company with a mid-range pricing of Rs 12,999 going up to Rs 15,999 for the 64GB variant. Pricing is not the only play that Honor is relying on, it is also offering dual-rear cameras and a bigger 18:9 aspect ratio display in the mid-range/budget segment. Players like Xiaomi, Motorola are yet to offer 18:9 displays in the market in the under Rs 15,000 segment so far. However, both have a dual-rear camera option with Mi A1 priced at Rs 14,999 while there’s the Moto G5S Plus at Rs 15,999. When it comes to dual rear cameras, Honor and Huawei have been experimenting and offering such features for quite some time. In fact, when I reviewed the Honor 8 Pro, I felt dual rear camera was definitely one of the best in the under Rs 30,000 category. So how does the Honor 7X fare? Here’s our review.
5.93-inch FHD+ display (2160 x 1080 pixels) | Kirin 650 octa-core processor | 4GB RAM +64GB storage (expandable)| 16MP+2MP rear camera with PDAF and 8MP front camera | 3340 mAh battery | Android Nougat 7.0 with EMUI Honor 7X price in India: Rs 12,999 for 4GB RAM +32GB /Rs 15,999 for 4GB RAM + 64GB storage
The big change in the Honor 7X compared to the previous Honor 6X is the display, which is hard to miss. The 5.93-inch full vision display comes with a 2160 x 1080 pixels resolution, and from a design perspective, the Honor 7X will remind users of the more premium Honor 8 Pro. In fact, as I had already noted in my first impressions, from the back the two phones are very similar with the prominent antenna bands on top and bottom.
Our review unit for the Honor 7X came in a black matte finish, which looks stylish for the price. The front of the phone is all about the display with reduced bezels on the side, top and bottom. And yes, like many full display smartphones there is no home button on the front, though Honor has kept the on-screen buttons at the bottom. The fingerprint scanner is at the back of the device, and this works accurately on most occasions. The only major flaw of this all matte black design would be that it is prone to smudges and a user will need to keep wiping this phone to make sure it stays squeaky clean. The Honor 7X definitely needs a tempered glass on the front as well to protect the display and I’ve noticed some slight scratches on the front. However, the overall build quality is good and the phone feels solid and there are no major dents or paint chipping away, and I’ve had this phone for a little over three weeks.
The major positive point about the Honor 7X has to be the display. This is definitely one of the best viewing experiences in the Rs 15,000 price point given that this is a 18:9 aspect display. The display is bright, vivid and the colour reproduction is accurate. If you enjoy watching YouTube videos, then the Honor 7X is the right phone. The zoom to fit feature means the videos takes up the entire screen and it looks quite good without appearing stretched. Honor 7X display has a 2160 x 1080 pixels resolution and one does not need to keep the brightness at maximum to have a good experience while watching videos. When it comes to performance, Honor 7X is at par with other devices in the price range. It scores around 62,486 in the Antutu Benchmark test, while in GeekBench it scores 903 in single-core and 3518 in multi-core. The scores are in line with what devices like Redmi Note 4, Moto G5S Plus have got in these tests.
Coming to the overall performance, I did not face any app crashes as such and the phone had no problem multi-tasking. Keep over 25 tabs open on Google Chrome gave no cause for trouble and I could easily switch between them on the phone. The gaming performance is also good and it can handle Asphalt 8, Beach Buggy etc without any noticeable lags or serious heating issues. However, one thing I did notice was that the device has a noticeable lag when there is a flood of notifications and it takes an extra few seconds to handle all of that incoming alerts.
Moving onto the camera, this is definitely one of the better cameras in the price range. The wide aperture mode is one that I liked the best on this camera. The overall colour reproduction is not bad, though there is a tendency to make reds appear over-saturated in some cases. The portrait mode works best when you keep your hands steady, there is enough lighting and the object in question should also remain still. Based on my usage, I would say the portrait mode works better on actual humans and the results are quite appealing, considering the price. On the battery front, Honor 7X scored around six hours plus on the PCMark battery test. The phone’s battery will easily last a day with moderate to heavy usage, though the power-saving mode is a good option. The only thing missing is that Honor has not introduced a Type-C USB port here, but stuck with the older micro-USB port.
Finally, the sound quality is also quite impressive on this phone, which is important considering the primary use case for many folks will be watching videos. The interface has some interesting features as well, which remind me of MIUI. For instance, all information related messages are going into one folder in the SMS app. There’s also a feature called App Twin to let users run two versions of Facebook, WhatsApp, etc which might have some appeal for India users.
I would say the portrait mode is still far from perfect and the low-light performance could definitely be better on the phone. The low-light performance though is similar to what one gets on most budget, mid-range smartphones. The details are lacking when one takes pictures at night and you will need to rely on the flash for some occasions.
The lack of a Type-C port is definitely a miss in 2017. There’s also too much bloatware in the form of games, pre-loaded app, etc some of which could have been avoided. Yes, the phone comes with 64GB storage, but manufacturers should typically give a miss to pre-loading apps that are not absolutely crucial.

Honor 7X portrait mode sample. (Image resized for web) The other major point of complaint with the Honor 7X is still on Android Nougat and Android Oreo. Honestly, it is surprising that smartphone manufacturers are still launching devices with the older version of Android, even though 2017 is almost ending. Hopefully Honor 7X will get an upgrade to Android Oreo, but this is one area where most OEMs are not being consistent. Finally, we did notice a bit of a lag while playing Asphalt 8, though it did not impact game play. The device tends to get a tad warm on the top half when one has been gaming over half an hour, though it did not become unbearable to hold.
Honor 7X’s advantage right now is the big display and the better dual-rear cameras at a price of Rs 12,999. As I have pointed out, players like Xiaomi, Moto do not have a similar offering in this price segment for now. For those who want a bigger display and dual-rear camera for under Rs 16,000, the Honor 7X is good option considering the overall performance. The display in particular is very impressive on this smartphone. The negatives though are the older OS, micro-USB port.
