The Honor 7X stands apart among a serious horde of spending plan and mid-extend telephones with its eye-getting widescreen. At 5.93 inches and 2160 x 1080 (18:9) goals. The Honor 7X conveys a smaller than usual film experience. That you’re probably not going to discover anyplace else in the $200 value extend. DSLR highlights equipped for catching lovely representation photographs.
The Honor 7X additionally accompanies a few downsides. Most remarkably Huawei’s unbalanced EMUI working framework. Upgrades have been made since the Honor 7X initially propelled in 2017. And including support for EMUI 8 (which depends on Android 8). This helps put the Honor 7X back among the top contenders in its value run.

Structure: Wonderful widescreen
The most striking piece of the Honor 7X’s configuration is likewise its greatest element: the 5.93-inch widescreen. This presentation takes up the greater part of the front land of the telephone, leaving simply enough space for the front camera and telephone recipient at the top, and the Honor logo settled at the base.
The aluminum skeleton and bent edges feel good and normal to hold, however somewhat dangerous. The 3.5mm sound jack is situated on the base with the speaker and smaller scale USB charging port. The force and volume catches are situated on the correct side and a responsive unique finger impression sensor on the back. The Honor 7X underpins double SIM cards or a microSD for expandable capacity.
We were astounded to see that the Honor 7X accompanies its own reasonable plastic telephone case. Which is entertainingly ugly in configuration (it’s somewhat similar to slipping your telephone into clear orthodontic supports). It’s anything but difficult to slip on and includes a fantastic grasp, be that as it may.
Arrangement Process: Requires a manual update to EMUI 8
Opening in our SIM card and setting up our beforehand introduced applications was a breeze, as was setting up the unique mark sensor and facial acknowledgment. The Honor 7X comes stacked with EMUI 5, which is Huawei’s custom working framework dependent on Android 7. We needed to physically refresh to EMUI 8 (equal to Android 8) through the framework settings.
A few security patches followed, alongside a couple of telephone restarts. Bringing about a strong half hour before we were going with the Android 8 proportionate.
Execution: Impressive yet at the same time worked for low settings in games
Despite the fact that Huawei markets the Honor 7X as an extraordinary decision for gaming, that depends more on the physical size of the screen than the exhibition intensity of the inner processor. The Kirin 695 is proportional to the Qualcomm Snapdragon 630, which underscores web perusing, performing various tasks, and photograph altering over 3D designs preparing.
PC Mark’s Work 2.0 Performance Test brought about an exceptionally fulfilling score of 4957, around equivalent to a Samsung Galaxy S8 and Nokia 6.1. The Honor 7X incorporates an amazing 4 GB of RAM and general application use felt snappy and responsive.
The graphical tests were not as kind. The Car Chase test from GFX Benchmark brought about a 2.9 fps slideshow, while the T-Rex test delivered a comparatively disillusioning 18 fps. Anyway, we had the option to play PUBG Mobile, a mainstream third-individual multiplayer shooter, at low settings with practically no stammering or graphical issues, and in like manner for first-individual shooter Modern Combat Versus.
Notwithstanding the low graphical settings, the games improved on a greater screen contrasted with different telephones in the value run, yet don’t anticipate that a greater screen should mysteriously bring about better execution.
Availability: Spotty and conflicting download speeds
We never had any issues with calls, web perusing, or application issues while utilizing the Honor 7X on Wi-Fi or 4G LTE, in spite of the fact that the numbers from the Ookla Speedtest application were alarming and conflicting. We accomplished download speeds as high as 13 Mbps while outside in suburbia, yet regularly bested out at a large portion of that speed when testing various bearers and areas. Transfer speeds were increasingly steady, around 6-7 Mbps. Strangely, these would sometimes be higher than the download speeds.
LTE speeds while inside were a lot of lower. Floating around 1.2 Mbps and hitting a maximum of around 2.8 Mbps, with transfer speeds around the equivalent. Attempting to play dynamic web-based games while on LTE could demonstrate awful with those numbers.
Display Quality: Bigger is better
The Honor 7X takes it out of the recreation center with regards to the presentation quality with its extra-wide 5.93-inch, 2160 x 1080 screen. That is a proportion of 18:9, which is awesome for watching theater-quality motion pictures in all their widescreen greatness. Hues are commonly clear and energetic, however, they do get somewhat cleaned out in the daylight.
The auto brilliance functioned admirably to keep our screen splendor sufficiently low to ration battery, yet sufficiently high to make everything understood. The whole goals can be balanced down to additionally save battery, from the first FHD down to HD (1440 x 720).
A discretionary Smart Resolution setting naturally brings down screen goals when the battery comes up short. There’s likewise an eye comfort setting that changes the default white light to a dream well disposed yellowish tint, with a pleasant choice to set the particular shading temperature hotter or cooler.
We were additionally intrigued that the Honor 7X lets us pick between a standard home screen. Showing all the applications in a few columns more than a few pages. Or the more up to date “cabinet” arrangement of covering up. The applications in a solitary scrollable window that pulls up from the base of the screen. The Honor 7X lets you choose which strategy best suits your requirements. Rapidly switches between settings with the press of a catch.
Sound Quality: Below normal
Most spending telephones have genuinely forgettable sound settings. We’d rank the Honor 7X’s like a piece beneath normal. While we didn’t encounter any significant sound issues, the general sound quality was tinny when we played music through the speakers.
Cell phones don’t commonly have subwoofers. The 7X in especially sounded slender and metallic when playing music at the greatest volume. Films would, in general, be calmer by and large and the issue was far less recognizable, in any case.
The Honor 7X highlights a back double focal point camera (16 MP + 2 MP, the second being for profundity just) for pictures at 4608 x 3456 pixels and a 4:3 proportion. A double focal point camera isn’t something we regularly find in telephones under $200, and it makes some amazing pictures at the cost. Full 18:9 widescreen pictures are likewise accessible, however at a diminished 11 MP. Recordings can be recorded up to 1080p goals, with no help for 4K.
The double focal point implies you can make picture photographs with obscured foundations, otherwise called bokeh. You can choose representation mode with a speedy tap of a symbol on the primary camera screen, alongside a discretionary stunner mode to smooth out appearances. The 8 MP front camera additionally includes a representation bokeh mode.
By swiping left on the camera, we were given a flock of alternatives, including an AR focal point to carefully include foundations, music, caps, and veils, an HDR mode to get the most ideal lighting, and a Pro mode where we can physically modify various parts of the image like white equalization, introduction level, and core interest. These are generally phenomenal highlights. However, we found the genuine camera UI unnecessarily prominent and ugly, as you slide your finger along a bar to hit various settings.
Battery: Long-enduring, with a discretionary force sparing highlights
At 3,340 mAh, the Honor 7X incorporates perhaps the greatest battery we’ve found right now. This is something worth being thankful for, considering the extra-huge screen it needs to control. Huawei claims you ought to have the option to get in excess of an entire day of utilization per charge, which was effectively the situation for us.
We were additionally dazzled by the telephone’s capacity sparing alternatives, including the previously mentioned “Savvy Resolution” to bring down the screen goals. The battery setting incorporates choices for a “power sparing mode”, which points of confinement foundation applications and lessens special visualizations, and even an “ultra force sparing mode,” which empowers just a chosen few applications and had the option to dramatically increase our backup battery life.
Battery utilization was unmistakably shown and sorted out among applications and equipment.
Programming: EMUI is unbalanced and incorporates
Huawei, the producers of the Honor 7X. Utilizes its own custom working framework dependent on both Android and iOS. The Honor 7X comes introduced with EMUI 5 (in the past Emotion UI), which depends on Android 7. We had the option to refresh to EMUI 8, which depends on Android 8. The update was trailed by a few security fix downloads and telephone restarts. Yet in any case, refreshing was simple.
The Honor 7X additionally comes stacked with pre-introduced applications that stayed significantly after. We reestablished our applications from a past telephone. Most are unessential or excess Honor-marked applications that do things like dispatch a network site or put the help number into your keypad. There’s even an application to kill the spotlight and on despite. The fact that equivalent control is incorporated right with the primary draw down menu.
