2-minute Review [Positives]
  • 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
  • Well built, and feel quite sturdy in hand
  • Beautiful design - arguably the best looking device in the sub Rs 20k price category - in fact looks like a miniaturised version of LG's premium flagship G6 - the metal side rails, along with the glossy plastic back give the phone an upmarket look
  • The edges are metallic and rounded, which makes the phone easier to grip - it is also well weighted and very ergonomic for the screen size it offers
  • Has the same Full Vision display that's found in the LG G6, that will make it a conversation starter every time you take it out of your pocket - essentially, the display is a little taller than the standard 1080p resolution - it has a 2160 x 1080p resolution, which takes the aspect ratio from the standard 16:9 to 18:9 - in tandem, the top and bottom bezels have been drastically minimised, which adds to the phone’s unique look - moreover, the Full Vision display not only makes the phone look good, but makes the whole footprint smaller - this means, the LG Q6 with its 5.5-inch display, is just a hair bigger than say the 5-inch Lenovo Z2 Plus
  • As for the display quality, it is pretty good too, and one of the best in the category - viewing angles are very good, it is easily viewable outdoors and under direct sunlight, and with luminance readings of 605 lux, offers ample brightness as well - the display also has Gorilla Glass 3 protection on top for scratch protection and the touch response is quite good too
  • LG's UI is decent in terms of aesthetics and functionality
  • Decent rear camera - images have ample details and sharpness
  • The 1080p video recording is sharp and detailed, with good colors and excellent audio
  • Decent call quality
  • Decent battery life - lasts a day with moderate use
  • Decent (though not exceptional) charging speed - 0 to 100 in a little over 2 hours
  • On the whole, the Q6 is a good option for more casual users, who put more stock in design than internal hardware specs - but for users looking for more heavy-use apps/games, better performers like the Moto G5 Plus, Xiaomi Redmi Note 4, Honor 6X, Samsung Galaxy On Max etc will make more sense - all these smartphones offer better gaming performance (although day-to-day performance is pretty much same)
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
  • 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
  • No fingerprint scanner
  • The plastic back tends to scratch easily (so you will want to use a case)
  • No notification LED
  • The UI is decent but LG does include a lot of duplicate apps for pre-built Android functionality - all this bloatware could have been avoided
  • Although day-to-day performance is decent, performance with processor-intensive apps/games is definitely behind the competition
  • The camera app is pretty bare bones apart from panorama and food mode, the phone doesn't really let you tweak settings further
  • Average front facing camera - both dynamic range, and detail level are lacking
  • The speaker is located on the back side which means it can easily get muffled if you place the phone on a table or couch, face up - it also tends to sound tinny at high volumes
  • The phone does come with a “face unlock” feature - but it is a little slow
  • Uses micro-USB port instead of the more modern USB-C standard
