Huawei launched its latest offering - Honor 7 in the India market, which was earlier released in some of the European countries back in August. The handset is bound to be a monstrous threat to a lot of Chinese devices from Meizu and OnePlus.
The Honor 7 boasts a 5.2 inch display with a metal-clad body and a great snapper on the back with two flash along with a fingerprint scanner too.
Besides the fingerprint sensor that can be used at 360 degrees, the killer feature on the Honor 7 has to be the 21 megapixel Sony-sourced IMX230 image sensor, complete with a f/2.0 aperture, lightning fast autofocus and a huge number of special camera modes.
The design of the Honor 7 is quite simple, it somewhat resembles the look of the Xiaomi Mi4. Also since it is simple and doesn't come with any curves and cuts on the edges, from the side view, it looks like the classic iPhone design too. Precisely, I believe it is a mash up of the Apple iPhone 4, the Sony Xperia Z3+ and the Xiaomi Mi4.
The front face of the device boasts of a 5.2 inch screen surrounded by a fairly thin bezels on either sides. With a comfortable dimensions of 143.2x71.9x8.5mm the device can easily be one of the most easy to use handset. As far as the weight is concerned, due to the metal that has bene used, it weighs in at 157grams.
The Huawei Honor 7 uses a standard IPS LCD panel of 5.2 Inch size offering a Full HD resolution of 1080x1920 pixels. This roughly translates to the pixel density of 424ppi which is pretty good for a phone with this display size.
The smartphone is powered by its very own HiSilicon Kirin 935 chipset, which is an octa-core processor that's compressed with four cores running at 2.2GHz and four running at 1.5GHz and paired with 3GB of RAM.
The Huawei Honor 7 uses the native EMUI with the latest version 3.1. This is slapped over the Android 5.0 Lollipop. Therefore, you will be getting all the rich features of Android along with the company's added features through the UI.
The 3,100mAh battery is another fantabulous feature of Honor 7, however, if you're a heavy smartphone user you'll need to buy another power supply. The phone also supports fast charging, although this is perhaps not to be confused with Qualcomm's Quick Charge technology.
In India, Honor 7 will be a single SIM device instead of dual SIM, it's just that the second SIM card slot can be used as a microSD slot, just like the Honor 6 Plus.
