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
  • Premium metal design, with amazing attention to detail
  • Top-notch build quality
  • Brilliant in-hand feel, with edges that curve perfectly
  • Good display with vivid colors, wide viewing angles, and good sunlight visibility
  • MIUI is one of the better interfaces built over Android, and has a lot of useful functionality, but is still simple to use
  • Top-level, power packed performance with best-in-class hardware - and 3GB of RAM results in very good multi-tasking performance too
  • Excellent battery life - this phone is an absolute road-runner
  • Excellent, responsive fingerprint scanner
  • Good call quality
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
  • Camera is pretty decent, but could have been better
