2-minute Review [Positives]
  • High quality design, fit, and finish
  • The back plate tapers along the edges and corners, resulting in a far more comfortable in-hand feel
  • Very fast and accurate fingerprint reader, at par with what is found with most high-end flagship smartphones
  • Decent display, with good color accuracy and viewing angles
  • Apart from unlocking the device, the fingerprint scanner can also be used to capture photos and videos, answer phone calls, stop alarms, bring down the notification shade by swiping down, and browse through photos in the gallery by swiping left or right, which are all useful features to have - these are the kind of small touches that make the phone much easier to use with one hand
  • Very good performance at this price point - everything is as fluid and responsive in everyday use, and the device also handles graphically-intensive gaming with little issue
  • Decent dual camera setup - the first phone in this price range to come with a dual-camera setup, allowing for a nice bokeh effect in pictures
  • The overall camera experience is pretty good too - it is fast to focus and capture photos, and the photos are pleasant
  • Good loudspeaker
  • Decent overall audio quality
  • Very good battery life, helped by a well optimized processor - you get as much as 1.5 days of battery life with moderate use
  • Excellent metal unibody design with a premium look and feel, top notch build quality
  • The metal body curves on the sides and along the edges, giving this phone a good in-hand feel
  • Reasonably light at 165 grams
  • The fingerprint scanner at the back is easy to reach and quick to unlock the phone
  • Add to that the minimal bezel 18:9 display, and the Honor 7X is a definite looker
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
2-minute Review [Negatives]
  • EMUI is bright and colorful, but somewhat cartoonish (although it can be easily replaced with a custom launcher)
  • The single bottom-mounted speaker is good but is easy to muffle with your hand when using the phone in the landscape orientation
  • 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
  • No fast charging support - will take about two and a half hours to charge fully
  • Uses the older micro-USB port, instead of the USB-C standard
  • 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
