If you’re looking for a new phone to put in someone’s Christmas stocking, the Honor 7X is one to consider. Although Honor isn’t yet one of the first brands most people in the UK think about when they decide to purchase a new smartphone, the e-brand under the Huawei Group is a rising star. It’s already the number one e-brand in China in terms of sales performance and they have big plans to become a top brand worldwide. This week they’ve unveiled two new products, one of which is the Honor 7X, the other being the Honor View 10. The Honor 7X has a powerful octa-core Kirin 659 and graphics processing unit to deliver a high quality smartphone at the competitive price of £269, so it is going to be within the price range of a large number of smartphone consumers.
The Honor 7X is a mid-range smartphone that offers full-view display. This is the first time an Honor smartphone has offered this feature which achieves exceptionally high screen-to-body ratio. The 18:9 screen is going to be great for gamers while the Honor 7X also has a one-key screen split function to enhance productivity.
It also has Structured Light technology for enhanced face recognition. This assists the camera in capturing depth information and achieves accurate photographs, rich in detail. It also enhances the security of the face unlock feature. Sync Play technology is also featured which improves music playback. This enables several devices to play the same music simultaneously. It uses wireless connectivity and improves the surround sound effect.
Camera quality is at the forefront of many smartphone user’s minds when purchasing a new device and this phone is unlikely to disappoint. It has a dual-lens 16MP + 2MP rear camera with large aperture (F/0.95 – F/16) and PDAF to ensure the kind of quality you would expect from a DSLR camera.
If battery life is important to you, the Honor 7X has a reasonable battery. On a single charge of the 3,340 mAh battery, it can potentially last for more than 24 hours.
The Honor 7X has been available from 5th December 2017 in selected markets in Europe, Russia, the USA, the Middle East, India and Malaysia. It can also be ordered online from the Honor store.
