*The Honor 7x came on loan from Huawei. OneTechStop was not paid or influenced by anyone for the review of this device*
The Honor 7x is one of Huawei’s budget offerings. Its predecessors the Honor 5x and Honor 6x are considered to be good devices, and always a solid choice if for someone on a budget.
Being a budget device there’s nothing special about the unboxing experience. You get a small blue box with the Honor 7x logo on it. When opening the box the first thing you will see is the device itself. It’s a very attractive device, especially for a budget handset, with an all metal build and two rear facing cameras (16mp main sensor and 2mp secondary sensor). You’ll get a basic clear case that you can use if you want. You also get a micro usb cable (would be nice if it was usb c but it’s still passable since it is a budget device) and a non supercharge wall adapter. Like mentioned just previously the unboxing experience is a no frills experience giving you the essentials for your device.
The Honor 7x has good specs for a budget device. Running a Kirin 659 with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. It also has expandable storage via micro sd. The display 2160×1080 (Full HD+) IPS display at a 2:1 (or 18:9) aspect ratio. Personally I still do not like 2:1 aspect ratio devices, but it seems they are here to stay. It also has a 3340 mAh battery that is said to perform 30% better now that it has Huawei’s GPU Turbo software. The 7x has a single bottom firing speaker, and it seems only with budget devices will we be getting headphone jacks since the 7x has a headphone jack.
One of the best looking budget devices
The Honor 7x is probably on the most aesthetically pleasing devices. As much as I don’t like devices with a 2:1 aspect ratio, for practical purposes like watching video, I can see why those that obsess with their devices appearance do like it. It makes bezels a minimum even on budget devices. I also like that Huawei/Honor did not go with a notched display. A small “chin” and “forehead” is not a bad thing at all. It’s more aesthetically pleasing that way.
The Honor 7x is shaping up to be a pretty good device for its price of $200 the two things I will probably be testing more are probably the camera because Huawei’s phones always have great cameras with a lot of manual options and whether GPU Turbo is as good as it sounds.
We’d like to thank Huawei for sending us the review device
