2-Minute Review

Let's cut through the noise, and get to the crux of it. 11+ Expert Reviews analysed and summarised by the PhoneCurry Editorial Team, in a short and sweet 2-minute review.

Design

  • Good looks, good hand-feel, and an ergonomic design
  • Decent fingerprint sensor at the back
  • Also supports face unlock system which works consistently after a remarkably quick enrolment process
  • It's an all-plastic build, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but it does mean that the phone lacks the premium touch of some of the metal phones in this price bracket

Display

  • Modern 18:9 'FullView' display results in a pleasantly manageable phone, despite its 5.7-inch display
  • The display is decent, but certainly could have done with a higher resolution and better outdoor visibility

Software

  • EMUI is not the most refined skin for Android, and comes bundled with plenty of bloatware too (although it does offer plenty of customization)

Performance

  • The performance of the phone is ok in day-to-day use, but with the budget Snapdragon 430 at the core, you certainly shouldn't expect very good gaming performance

Camera

  • Decent dual camera setup at the rear - can take good shots in daylight
  • Decent front camera too (you might want to turn off the beauty mode though, as it's too aggressive)

Battery

  • Good battery life - should comfortably last the day with moderate to heavy use
  • No support for fast charging

More

  • Dedicated microSD slot and dual SIM slots
  • Supports the old microUSB port instead of the modern USB-C
  • On the whole, the Honor 7A is a pretty solid phone when judged on its own, but it will face some very tough competition from Redmi 5 in this price bracket, which has, among other things, a significantly more powerful processor
