Millennials are more than tech-savvy individuals: they are always on the go and are very particular about the style and affordability of their gadgets. When it comes to smartphones, the demands of millennials are pretty simple: they want a smartphone that’s stylish, has a great selfie camera and hardware that can handle daily tasks with a few games in between.
The most important trait of a phone for a millennial, however, is that it offers a high value for money proposition. The phone they look for needs to give them the most bang-for-their-buck, as well as go along with their relatively hectic lifestyle.
That’s one of the reasons why there’s intense competition in the sub-10K segment. Lots of brands are competing for the hard-earned cash of millennials, but only a few have managed to capture their hearts like HONOR 7A has.
Why should millennials on a budget consider the HONOR 7A? Let us break it down for you:
Minimum cash for maximum impact: while the HONOR 7A is a low-cost phone and comes with a plastic unibody build, it doesn’t look the part of a budget device. Its rear panel has a matte, metal-like finish that has two metal strips, which makes it look more expensive than it really is. It blends seamlessly with any millennial’s OOTD, give them that an extra kick in their Instagram feeds.
At the Php 5k to Php 8k price range, it is hard to find phones with a decent octa-core processor. The HONOR 7A delivers in that segment with a power-efficient Snapdragon 430 octa-core processor.
Paired with 2GB RAM and 16GB internal storage (0r 3GB RAM and 32GB internal storage), the Snapdragon 430 can push the HONOR 7A to handle a few graphically intense games like PUBG Mobile in between daily use. Should you find the internal storage small, you can easily expand it with a MicroSD card.
Among the many features that make the HONOR 7A stand out is a 5.7-inch HD+ display with a trendy 18:9 aspect ratio for slim bezels. It has good color rendition and decent viewing angles (even in direct sunlight), which makes watching videos on YouTube or Netflix videos an enjoyable experience.
In addition to its generous display size, one of the HONOR 7A’s less-talked features is its loudspeaker. Paired with a Smart PA amplifier, the HONOR 7A’s speaker be quite loud without compromising sound quality.
When it comes to unlocking methods, the HONOR 7A offers both fingerprint scanner and face unlock options to give you that added peace of mind. The fingerprint scanner has a few tricks to boot; it comes with gesture controls so that you can navigate through your phone easier.
Even with just 8-megapixels and a f/2.4 aperture, the HONOR 7A’s camera UI optimizes the front camera for capturing flattering selfies with natural skin tones and adequate sharpness. Shooting selfies in the dark should not be a problem either; its selfie toning flash can be adjusted for snapping that selfie even in low light conditions.
