Huawei Honor 7 review

 

The Honor 7 is affordable, but too weak to play many mobile games.

Huawei Honor 7 Review

 

Launched in the U.K just days ago, the design of the Huawei Honor 7 comes directly from another success story of the brand: the Huawei Mate 7. The Honor 7 is the new top phone in Huawei's line of “Honor” phones, which is crafted as a premium product...

The Huawei Honor 7 is a well-built, all-metal phone. It seems to have been specifically targeted at users that mostly use productivity and social apps, with an emphasis on photo-sharing, especially selfies. The camera has a “very good” performance, but...

Honor 7 Smartphone Review

 

Honorable mention. Shortly after the launch of the Huawei P8, the manufacturer offers another device with similar specifications, now under the label of its subsidiary Honor. Unlike the P8, the Honor 7 is not focused on a slim construction, but tries...

dual-SIM feature, sophisticated chassis, microSD-card slot, NFC and Bluetooth 4.1, ac WiFi, fingerprint reader, precise touchscreen, very good display with excellent contrast, decent battery runtimes, great speaker, high-resolution main camera

that creates too much picture noise, videos up to Full-HD & 30 fps, average SoC performance with restrictions under load, no 800 MHz LTE band (import version), warm chassis while idling, high power consumption

The Honor 7 is a very convenient all-rounder with many advantages. Besides the extremely high-contrast display, which also scores with a decent luminance and wide viewing angles, the review unit is very well equipped: Thanks to 64 GB of internal...

Huawei Honor 7 Review

 

If your perception of a Chinese-made smartphone still involves plastic and cheap knockoffs, then you might not have paid attention to the market for past year or so. Quite a few names have risen above the ranks to show the might of the East and their...

Wu Dezhou, Huawei’s Director of Product Line for Honor, said that the Honor 7 targets 3 main DNA characteristics: quality, battery life, and signal. And in most cases, Huawei was able to deliver. The build quality of the smartphone is definitely...

Huawei Honor 7 vs Ascend Mate 7

 

The Honor 7 aims to combine a premium build with impressive specs and an even more impressive price tag, but how does it compare to the Mate 7, which it has arguably been inspired by? Let's take a look.

Great battery life ; Decent camera ; Useful SmartKey button ; Great display ; Fast fingerprint scanner ; Lots of software features and shortcuts

Honor 7 review: a budget wonder

 

Huawei has launched the Honor 7 in Europe, following its release in China. While the Honor 7 is reminiscent of a smaller Ascend Mate 7 , it does have a few new distinguishing features of its own. Read our full Honor 7 review to see what sets this...

Very good workmanship ; Front camera with LED flash ; Fast Fingerprint Scanner ; Very good battery life

Design drawn from Ascend Mate 7 ; Heavy

The Honor 7 could have been the star of the movie Honey, I Shrunk the Kids. In many excellent ways it's a smaller Ascend Mate 7. It's also a great upgrade from the Honor 6, thanks to the addition of the finger scanner, metal chassis and Quick Start...

Honor 7 review

 

£400 specs, £250 price tag. What's not to like?

Versatile, good-quality camera ; Great value ; Bold screen ; Solid performance

So-so camera picture colours ; Some minor construction cut corners ; Oddball software needs manual tweaks

5-star value only knocked down a spot by its quirky nature

Honor 7 review: Brilliance on a budget

 

When we say "affordable smartphone" you probably think of plastic, low spec, and a bunch of compromises. But the mid-range is changing drastically with phones like the OnePlus 2 offering near top-end specs at low-end prices. Now Honor, a derivative...

Great build quality for price, decent cameras and battery life, good fingerprint reader

No NFC, some user interface clutter, knuckle gesture responsiveness

In an attempt to take on the new higher-quality mid-range, Honor has improved upon its first and second handset releases for its latest flagship. All in, that makes the Honor 7 impressive. From the build quality, to the performance, battery life and...

Honor 7 review

 

Making it big in the west

Great camera ; Good performance ; Low price

Fingerprint scanner doesn't work flawlessly ; Uninspired design ; Battery life not great

The Huawei Honor 7 is a decent, if unglamorous, mid-range smartphone that comes with some nice features and an excellent camera.
