Honor 7 review

 

Making it big in the west

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

Honor 7 review: Brilliance on a budget - Pocket-lint

 

£250 for near top-end specs, a quality build and impressive cameras with entertaining options, but no NFC

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

 

We put Honor's latest flagship smartphone through its paces.

Honor has once again impressed us with a flagship smartphone at an outrageous price. For under £250 you get a lot of phone for your money. Performance is good with the main camera and fingerprint sensors being the highlights on the hardware side....

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

 

Great performance and an excellent display, but its terrible battery life and worrying build quality are major concerns

The Honor 7 has all the makings of a great mid-range smartphone, but concerns over its build quality, its frustrating version of Android and terrible battery life means it can't help but fall short of its goals. At this price, the £270 Motorola Moto X...

Honor 7 Review: Hands-on

 

The Honor 7 has finally landed in Europe, becoming yet another option from a growing number of affordable Android flagships. We went hands-on.

Attractive, solid design ; Smooth performance ; Fingerprint scanner

UI irritations ; Poor to average battery life

At £250 the Honor 7 packs the kind of specs you’d expect to stay competitive, along with some solid features like a fingerprint scanner. That hardware is solid and refreshingly attractive, but the software side often lets it down, with Emotion UI...

Honor 7 review: Flagship phone features in a £250 handset

 

Honor's new phone includes a fingerprint sensor and 20-megapixel camera with sapphire lens cover for a bargain £250

The Honor 7 is a lot of phone for £250, and, although it isn’t likely to push the Moto G (2015) off top spot for the title of best budget smartphone, it does provide users with a better specified alternative.

Huawei Honor 7 Review

 

Huawei is at it again with a new follow-up addition to its premium Honor range. Can this midrange handset compete with the best? Huawei sub-brand Honor has continued to make a name for itself thanks to competitively priced handsets that perform very...

Good camera ; Appealing design ; Excellent screen

Mixed gaming performance ; Non-removable battery ; Semi-plastic finish

For anybody who wants a mid-range smartphone, the Honor 7 is a solid choice and more readily available than the comparative OnePlus 2. A flawed gem would be the best way to describe it, as the device has great aesthetic appeal and some excellent...

For the Brave Smartphone : Huawei Honor 7

 

A trip down London's Brick Lane introduced me to a new smartphone from Huawei's Honor range.

Following the release of its top-of-the-range P8 smartphone, Huawei has now refreshed its Honor range which is aimed more at the budget section of the market. The Honor 7 is a 5.2-inch smartphone that comes with the tag line of “For The Brave”. In...

Обзор смартфона Huawei Honor 7 (PLK-L01)

 

Металлический смартфон, оснащенный 20-мегапиксельной основной камерой, вспышкой для «фронталки» и дактилоскопическим сенсором

К качеству связи претензий нет, за период тестирования аппарат не терял сеть, Wi-Fi не «отваливался», с GPS проблем не возникло – устройство всегда уверенно вело к цели, а путь не был тернистым (отклонения в навигации не происходили).
