Honor 7X review

It's time to welcome 18:9 to the mid-range


The Honor 7X is a perfect balance between power, style and efficiency which are most of the things you will need in a mid-range smartphone today.

For a mid-ranger, the Honor 7X is an interesting smartphone as it packs in an 18:9 display which has been a trend this year. Thus, Honor bringing this phone out at the end of the year makes sense.

Honor 7X is an example of the extent to which the company is willing to go to stay in the game. Providing a fine display along with a premium-looking build gives it an edge over the competition.

Who’s it for? 

Honor 7X stands out with its minimal bezel display and a premium-like build. It doesn’t feel as premium as the flagship smartphones and neither does it feel a mid-range smartphone like the Moto G5s Plus.

People looking to spend on a mid-range smartphone but want an edge such as a 18:9 aspect ratio with thin bezels, the Honor 7X is for you.

Should you buy it? 

In a price segment dominated by the likes of Xiaomi Redmi Note 4, Mi A1 and Moto G5, the Honor 7X stands firmly with its large display packed inside a slim metal build. Still, if you want the best camera then Mi A1 is still ahead in the race, and similarly,  Redmi Note 4 is a better option if you need a big battery with solid mid-range hardware.
