2-minute Review [Positives]
  • Excellent metal unibody design with a premium look and feel, top notch build quality
  • Add to that the minimal bezel 18:9 display, and the Honor 7X is a definite looker
  • The metal body curves on the sides and along the edges, giving this phone a good in-hand feel
  • Reasonably light at 165 grams
  • Beautiful, large, immersive display - watching movies and games is a great experience
  • Viewing angles are good too, and Honor lets you tweak the colour temperature to suit your preferences
  • The fingerprint scanner at the back is easy to reach and quick to unlock the phone
  • Honor's custom EMUI skin is decent (though not the best) and has a thoughtful single-handed mode which makes the phone easier to use despite its big screen
  • Good, solid, peppy performance backed by the same combination of processor and RAM as the Honor 9i
  • Both rear and front camera clicks are good in well lit conditions - and both have bokeh mode
  • Decent battery life - will comfortably last the work day with moderate use
  • If your primary requirement is for a large, bezel-less display for reading content and watching movies, then the 7X will make a good choice
  • Sports a nice metal unibody design that feels smooth at the touch, and a good build quality
  • Dedicated dual sim slots and microSD slot
  • Beautiful, large 5.98-inch Full HD (1080x1920) display on top - the screen pops with vivid and bright colours and you will best enjoy it when watching 1080p videos on YouTube or streaming platforms like Netflix (or while playing games) - the screen is also pretty visible under bright sunlight, and viewing angles are good too
  • Good performance - even under intensive use - playing graphic-intensive games and browsing heavy websites is pretty smooth
  • Impressive battery life - will comfortably last over a day even with heavy use
  • Supports fast charging via XCharge, which is decent (takes about 2 hours to full charge) though not the fastest
2-minute Review [Negatives]
  • Performance is good in daily use, but graphically intensive games will stutter - there are better performing phones available in this price bracket
  • Rear and front cameras are quite good but not the best - low light performance and portrait/bokeh mode are sometimes hit-and-miss
  • Average loudspeaker - audio from videos and music is not the best
  • Uses the older micro-USB port, instead of the USB-C standard
  • No fast charging support - will take about two and a half hours to charge fully
  • At this price range, the Honor 7X faces strong competition from the Xiaomi Mi A1 - while it doesn’t come with as impressive a display as the Honor 7X - it does boast a superior set of cameras, and stock Android OS (along with guaranteed Android updates in the future), which may make it an overall better choice for most users
  • The Infinix Zero 5 is a massive phone both inside and out - it is quite large and will be unwieldy for most
  • In the age of bezel-less display, the design is also a little old-school
  • The fingerprint sensor, though accurate, is not the fastest
  • Infinix's custom UI over Android is not the most fluid (you'll notice some stuttering when scrolling within apps and websites and touch responsiveness is not all that snappy), and also has a bunch of bloatware, which can't be uninstalled
  • Average rear camera - the photos aren't too detailed, and indoor shots are noisy - portrait mode is average too
  • Average front camera - tends to let in a little too much light, portrait mode is again average
  • The single speaker on the bottom can get loud at maximum volume, but it doesn't produce the clearest sound - the placement is also not ideal since your palm would often block the speaker when watching videos or playing games in landscape mode
