Phone Review: And the Honor 7X Goes to…

Updated: Aug 6, 2018

Photography enthusiasts rejoice! Known for their high-quality smartphone photography, Huawei returns yet again with the latest in the Honor line: Honor 7X.

And we have to say, this sleek beauty does not disappoint. Priced at RM1,099, this phone may not be in the same league as the latest iPhone, but it offers some of the stellar features the elite do without breaking your bank account.

Captivating, top-notch photography

Have you ever wanted a high-tech phone that produces DSLR-like quality photographs? While smartphones have certainly come a long way since their inception, we can’t really say that the photographs they produce are comparable to that of a DLSR’s.

Now we can. Thanks to its dual lens rear cameras of 16MP and 2MP, the Honor 7X has an incredible knack for capturing images that are crisp, and rich in colour and detail.

Gesture trigger

With the amount of focus Huawei places on its smartphone photography, it comes as to no surprise that the company has taken a step forward in further enhancing our photo-taking experience. How, precisely?

It does this by eliminating the fuss of running over to press the Capture button and running back just in time for the timed flash to come on. All you have to do now is to show the phone the palm of your hand, close and open it- and the timed flash will come on a few seconds later. Pretty nifty, if we could say so ourselves.

Safety airbags

Safety airbags? Aren’t those supposed to be just for cars? Apparently not. Ever vigilant, Huawei has taken great pains to install safety airbags in all four corners of each Honor 7X. So if you think all Honor 7X is good for is looking pretty and taking pictures, think again. This gadget is a hardy friend, and is certainly not to be underestimated.

After 4,800 Honor 7X phones were used in quality tests to ensure just this, it’d be pretty hard to make an argument against it.

Attractive design

Not only does it look rich, the slim body of the Honor 7X allows it to sit comfortably in your hand. This might not sound like a big deal, but it is when you’re trying to swype your latest text message. The minor inconvenience of fumbling with your phone is eliminated thanks to elegant piece of technology.

Wide, edgeless screen

There is something aesthetically pleasing about having a wide, edgeless screen. Just like how it’s far more enjoyable to watch a movie on the big screen as opposed to the much smaller screen of a television. Do you see where we’re going here?

The Honor 7X provides ultra-high definition and a remarkable display quality- so much so that it would almost be like having a mini cinema screen in the palm of your hand.

Split screen feature

We’re sure that everyone has had at least one moment where they wish they could multitask on their phone- and we’re sure this happens most often when they’re on YouTube. If only you could watch and listen to your favourite music video without pausing it, just so you could reply to your latest text message…

Thankfully, Huawei has fixed this little predicament by introducing a split screen feature in the Honor 7X. Want to email someone while watching Netflix? No problem!

Large memory

A microSD card of up to 256GB can be used to increase data storage. In layman’s terms, it means hundreds of television episodes can be downloaded and stored to watch offline afterwards. And as though to combat the concern of Android performance degradation, smart optimization and file management features have been put in place to prevent this.

So fret not. You can go ahead and download that latest episode of Game of Thrones without worry!

Long lasting battery life

With great power comes great responsibility. Fortunately, Honor 7X is able to shoulder its fancy specs without too much of an issue. Even with the larger FullView Display, this elegant smartphone can go on for more than one full day.

If you turn on the Ultra Power Saving Mode, its resilience is even more so impressive. You’d be able to watch a full season of your favourite television series or 91 hours of music, on a single charge. Talk about a powerhouse!

In exactly how many ways do we love thee? Apparently, far too many. The Honor 7X is just that impressive.
