The Honor 7X smartphone which looks like a twin sibling of Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus from the front and iPhone 8 Plus from the back.


The Honor 7x features a 5.93-inch screen with an 18:9 display ratio that looks slightly taller than the 5.5-inch Honor 6X. The tall 18:9 aspect ratio lends itself well to gaming and multimedia consumption. However, the Honor 7X does not allow YouTube videos to fill up the whole screen.

Sleeky Design:

7X design language remains as familiar as the Samsung S8 Plus and iPhone 8 plus, the fit and finish of this bezel-free beauty are extremely nice with well-rounded corners, attractive full-metal uni-body design and it fits very well in the hand. The 7X’s curved edges and rounded corners help reduce the bulk of the smartphone and also aid in-hand feel.

This handset is available in 3 gorgeous colors deep blue, black and silver and each color has its unique styling and finishing which becomes a tough choice to choose the right one for your need!

The fingerprint sensor stays on the back of the phone, slightly above the center where your finger rests naturally like the Honor 6X. The fingerprint sensor has got an additional cool feature where swiping down on the sensor drags down the notification bar easily. Also, you can tap on it during selfies and capture pics with ease.


Honor has paired a primary 16MP sensor with a secondary 2MP sensor. There are tons of modes available to choose from for shooting portrait photos, moving pictures, etc. All the pictures taken with Honor 7X camera are pretty colorful with precise details. The 2MP sensor gives an attractive blur in the background to isolate the subject just as the iPhone 8.

There is also a fully featured Pro mode which allows you to tinker with the ISO, exposure, shutter speed and so on. Bokeh shots look decent and are better than those produced by some competitors.

One feature that it still included while the other companies are ditching is the headphone jack. Yes, Honor 7X understands that the users still like a headphone jack on their phone and it is equipped with a 3.5 mm headphone jack at the bottom.

To the left of the phone, there is a hybrid SIM tray to put a SIM card and a micro SD card(up to 256 GB). But if you want the other slot for dual SIM you need to compromise on the storage.
