2-minute Review [Positives]
  • Good hand-feel, ergonomic design
  • Decent fingerprint sensor at the back
  • Also supports face unlock system which works consistently after a remarkably quick enrolment process
  • Modern 18:9 'FullView' display results in a pleasantly manageable phone, despite its 5.7-inch display
  • Pretty decent rear camera - can take especially good shots in daylight
  • Decent front camera too (you might want to turn off the beauty mode too, as it's too aggressive)
  • Dedicated microSD slot and dual SIM slots
  • Good battery life - should comfortably last the day with moderate to heavy use
  • Modern, fresh design with an almost bezel-less ‘Infinity Display’
  • Very good build quality
  • The rear is made of polycarbonate and feels premium
  • Despite housing a 5.6-inch screen, the device is compact and lightweight - you can easily use it with one hand
  • The 5.6-inch HD+ Super AMOLED ‘Infinity Display’ is one of the best in this price range - makes for a good video watching experience - the AMOLED panel makes every thing look vivid and the viewing angles are decent too
  • Samsung's Touchwiz on top of Android is one of the more refined and neat Android skins, and has some useful add-ons like Samsung Pay Mini which makes digital payments easy and a Knox-powered ‘Secure Folder’ for you store to sensitive files
  • Smooth day-to-day performance, backed by a Exynos 7870 - should work well for most users, other than heavy gamers
  • Decent rear and front cameras, especially in daylight
  • Good battery life - the 3000mAh battery which will easily last a day for heavy users while average users can squeeze around 36 hours of battery life
  • Decent charging speed too - takes a little more than 90 minutes to fully-charge the device
2-minute Review [Negatives]
  • It's an all-plastic build, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but it does mean that the phone lacks the premium touch of some of the metal phones in this price bracket
  • The display is decent, but certainly could have done with a higher resolution and better outdoor visibility
  • EMUI is not the most refined skin for Android, and comes bundled with plenty of bloatware too (although it does offer plenty of customization)
  • The performance of the phone is decent in day-to-day use, but with the budget Snapdragon 430 at the core, you shouldn't expect very good gaming performance
  • Supports the old microUSB port instead of the modern USB-C
  • No support for fast charging
  • On the whole, the Honor 7A is a pretty solid phone when judged on its own, but it will face some very tough competition from Redmi 5 in this price bracket, which has, among other things, a significantly more powerful processor
  • The display resolution could have been better
  • The performance is pretty decent, but is not the best in this price bracket (that prize would go to the likes of Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro)
