2-minute Review [Positives]
  • Absolutely dazzling glass design, identical to the much more expensive P20 Pro - this phone is a looker
  • Easy to use with one hand
  • The fingerprint sensor below the display is molded into the bezel itself - there's no depression where a home button would normally be, which gives the phone a neat, seamless look - the sensor also doubles as a touch-sensitive home button when the phone's in use
  • Very good, modern 19:9 tall display, with minimal bezels, and a 'notch' design, like the iPhone X - the display itself is sharp and bright
  • Packed with powerful top-end hardware - the phone runs the same top-end Kirin 970 chip found in Huawei's flagship (Huawei makes the chip itself) and gives almost identical performance - thus putting it in the league of the top-end flagship phones, at a much cheaper price - apps load quickly, photo editing is hassle-free and demanding games play very well
  • Good set of dual cameras on the back, enhanced by Huawei's AI tech - the camera uses artificial intelligence to detect what scene is being photographed and tweaks the image accordingly - and it works quite well - overall the cameras are only one notch below the best of the best like the Pixel 2 (which costs a lot more)
  • Good front camera too
  • Loud speaker
  • Good battery life - will last the day with moderate to heavy use
  • On the whole, the Honor 10 is a pretty solid phone, and delivers the same fast speeds and stylish colours as its flagship cousin the Huawei P20 Pro (although not quite the same superlative camera quality), at a much lower price, and has a standard headphone jack too - it's also a solid alternative to the excellent OnePlus 6, within this price bracket
  • Very light
  • Nice looking, notch-based full screen design, that is in trend these days following the launch of the iPhone X
  • The fingerprint sensor at the back is quick and accurate, and face unlock also works quickly
  • The phone’s tall 6.23-inch LCD IPS display with full HD+ resolution is sharp and impressive
  • The Oppo F7 uses the company’s Color OS user interface, on top of Android - it’s a reasonably good single-layered UI with a heavy focus on visuals and apps built by Oppo
  • Good speed/performance - the phone handles both basic use, and graphic-intensive games fairly well, and you will get a clean, lag-free experience
  • Good rear and front cameras - pictures taken with the Oppo F7 are surprisingly good for the price of the phone, despite not having as many sensors as you’d expect from smartphones these days - the single-camera setup on either side might come across as inadequate, but the camera makes up for this with its AI chops - pictures are generally well composed and look good, with accurate colors and sharp contrast where needed
  • The AI abilities are really put to work in getting the depth-effect and vivid-mode shots - despite the single-camera setup, portrait shots with the front camera are excellent, getting colors, depth-effect and boundaries fairly accurately - the rear-camera’s portrait mode is decent too
  • Overall, the camera capabilities are on par with the very good cameras on the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro, and the Vivo V9 - which are also likely to be the Oppo F7's main competitors
  • Battery life is good as well, with the phone comfortably running for a full day on a single charge with moderate use
  • On the whole, the Oppo F7 is a good choice for a stylish looking device that takes especially good selfies - it also has a slight edge over its main competitor, the Vivo V9 in terms of performance, overall camera quality, and battery life (though in terms of design and build quality, the Vivo V9 is ahead)
2-minute Review [Negatives]
  • The Honor 10's fingerprint sensor looks pretty seamless from the outside, but is somewhat hard to reach with one hand, and is can sometimes be slow and inaccurate - you might find yourself relying more on the face unlock in daily use
  • The glass gets slippery so you might want to use a case
  • The EMUI Android skin is quite feature packed, but not the most light Android skin around
  • The phone has a little bit of a tendency to warm up when stressed during gaming and while using other heavy apps
  • The phone is primarily built of plastic, and the build quality could have been better at this price point
  • There is no fast charging tech, so charging the Oppo F7 will take a while – about two hours (or a little more) to fully top up the battery with a regular charger
  • Charging and data transfers use a micro-USB port, which is a little old school in this age where even budget devices are going to USB Type-C way
