Honor 7X

HWM (Malaysia) - - CONTENTS - By Nickey Ross

honor has been re­ally killing the game, as mil­len­ni­als these days would say. Its smart­phones have been off the hook, and it's ev­i­dent. The honor 7X is the lat­est of­fer­ing to fea­ture honor’s first Ful­lView dis­play. The FHD+ dis­play is ab­so­lutely stun­ning, as it fully cap­tures the beauty of its on-screen sub­jects. The 7X op­er­ates on a Kirin 659 Soc, along with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of in­ter­nal stor­age.

The honor 7X sports a smooth alu­minum chas­sis that gives it a sump­tu­ous feel. The ma­te­rial doesn't at­tract too much fin­ger­prints, but if you look closely, you may find sub­tle hints. To achieve the Ful­lView dis­play, it makes sense how the front doesn't have any sort of home or ca­pac­i­tive but­tons. The phone is pre­loaded with EMuI 5.1, as well as An­droid 7.0 OS.

Go­ing back to the phone's Ful­lView dis­play fea­ture, we no­ticed an in-app op­tion to switch to the Ful­lView screen. un­for­tu­nately, there are some apps that can't adapt, as there is a dis­claimer stat­ing that cer­tain apps may not be op­ti­mized for it. The four edges of the 7X were man­u­fac­tured with en­hanced pro­tec­tion, so a clumsy drop may not bring about harsh con­se­quences. In terms of the speak­ers, the emit­ted au­dio has a rather de­cent qual­ity, but we wouldn't call it spec­tac­u­lar.

Another high­light of the honor 7X would be its cam­eras. Equipped with a dual rear cam­era com­pris­ing a 16MP and a 2MP lens, the phone de­liv­ers near-DSLR pho­tos. There is also a wide aper­ture mode too, if you want your pho­tos to ex­hibit bokeh ef­fect. The front-fac­ing 8MP cam­era is just as good, as the self­ies weren't laden with beau­ti­fi­ca­tion ef­fects. There was not much noise present in pho­tos taken with ei­ther cam­era.

As usual, we sub­jected the 7X to a se­ries of bench­marks with 3DMark, PcMark, and AnTuTu. We would've em­ployed Epic ci­tadel and Quad­rant Stan­dard, but they were re­moved from Google Play. With 3DMark, the de­vice scored 405 and 12,316 in its Sling­shot Ex­treme and Ice Storm un­lim­ited com­po­nents, re­spec­tively. The 7X achieved 4,865 in PcMark's Work 2.0 bench­marks and 63,596 with AnTuTu. With AnTuTu's 3D bench­mark, the 7X reg­is­tered 4.30 fps for its 3D Ma­rooned seg­ment and 6.67 fps for its 3D Gar­den seg­ment. Based on PcMark's Work2.0 bat­tery life test, the smart­phone should last eight hours and 33 min­utes, but we're con­fi­dent that the 7X can out­last that.

All in all, the honor 7X is splen­did. It is vi­brant, dy­namic and af­ford­able. If you're keen on get­ting the phone, you will cer­tainly not re­gret it.

The honor 7X is the per­fect mar­riage of af­ford­able and func­tional.

The honor 7X has an el­e­gantly crafted alu­minum chas­sis.
