The Honor 6x was released just over a year ago and was very well received for its 11,999 INR price point it had impressive specs and became the phone to beat for budget-conscious buyers. Now, honor is back with the 7x bringing an updated 2017 design better camera and faster processor but can it still compete with the other budget devices out today.
The honor 7x has a very premium look and feel much like the honor 8 Pro it uses an all-metal chassis with nicely rounded corners and it’s near 6-inch display is still quite manageable thanks to minimal bezels while the screen isn’t 2k that’s fair enough for a budget device rather this is a fullHD+ LCD panel but it’s got nice vivid colors and sufficiently high pixel density for most folks in keeping with 2017 trends the 5.9 3-inch screen uses an 18:9 aspect ratio with an 83% screen to body ratio that’s up there with the flagship crowd while we’ve grown accustomed to this look on more expensive phones it’s always nice to see on such an affordable device.
The current 659 Octa-core chipset is paired with the Mali T830 GPU for some power there are two variants of this model which are a 64 GB version with 4GB ram and a 32 GB version with 4GB RAM both versions have microSD expandable storage up to 256 GB but neither is water-resistant and there’s no wireless charging here nor NFC for Android pay like the 6x.
The honor 7x sports a dual lens camera the main shooter is 16 Megapixels while the secondary 2 Megapixel camera is there to provide portrait mode bokeh, unfortunately, this doesn’t work quite as well as the more expensive competition and we were slightly disappointed with the depth effect, however, improvements can always be made later with a software update.
Honor 7x Camera Sample
The 16-megapixel camera with phase detection autofocus lacks some color accuracy but otherwise holds up pretty well and is still capable of getting some nice-looking shots with good sharpness there’s also a beefy 8-megapixel front facing the camera with portrait mode for the selfie.
A fingerprint sensor around the back a single bottom firing speaker and that most elusive and sought-after of 2017 features the headphone jack battery capacity remains the same as the 6 X at 3340mAh hours charged via micro USB rather than USB type-c full cost-cutting purposes.
I’ll bring you more on 7x’s battery and camera in the full review so stay tuned for that the honor 7x runs Android new get it launched with the usual promises of an update to Android Oreo as soon as possible the device has three color variant black, blue and gold. Honor 7x will cost about 12999 on Amazon.in.
Overall it’s a great device for it price segment over the coming days it does make quite a good first impression from its contemporary design and full-screen display to its metal build and dual cameras as cheap phones get increasingly good the feature gap between flagships and mid ranges continues to shrink.
