Reviews for the Honor X7

HONOR X7, X8, X9 Review Philippines: Full Force
Source: Unbox English EN→zh-CN
While puzzling at first, it’s clear that the X7, X8, and X9 are meant to cater to different markets as part of HONOR’s strategy in its return to the Philippines. The X7 is the most affordable of the three and is made for those who prioritize battery life and are a fan of HONOR’s older phone designs. The X8 is geared towards those who want a slim phone that offers a large display thanks to its razor-thin bezels, while the X9 is made to be an affordable version of the Magic4 Pro flagship by offering a number of high-end features and having a very good camera performance when compared against the competition. Having a good set of features for their price, we do hope that HONOR stays true to its commitment with software upgrades and updates the X7, X8, and X9 to Android 12–or maybe get them upgraded to HONOR’s upcoming MagicOS 7.0 in the near future.

Honor X7 Battery test
Source: DxOMark English EN→zh-CN
The Honor X7’s global battery score ranks it above average in our entire database. The autonomy was really optimized when testing in factory default settings. Indeed, it showed excellent performance during the typical usage scenario, with low discharge currents, day and night, and excellent autonomy on the go, especially when scrolling on social apps and using GPS navigation. When tested in calibrated mode, the gaming and calling tests showed decent autonomy, but the device struggled when streaming video and music. We noticed that the battery levels 8%, 28%, 48%, 68%, and 88% displayed by the UI lasted only 30 seconds, whatever the use case, even during the charging tests. When the device reached 2%, the device would automatically turn off after 30 seconds.

Honor X7 Smartphone Review
Source: OI Spice Tech News English EN→zh-CN
The Honor X7 smartphone holds decent performance, high refresh rate, and battery capacity. Rest specs like camera, display, sensor, etc. are just average and there is nothing unique about that. Though there are downsides too such as no Full HD resolution support. Considering the price, some of the specs are manageable while some are not. Whether the phone is right for you depends on what you need out of a phone. With this budget, you can’t expect world-class performance. If you are looking for performance and mediocre gaming, then this device can be an option while you can check the alternatives for a better deal. The Poco M3 Pro 5G is also a great alternative and comes with a decent battery, camera, display, and chipset support plus you get 5G, which is in demand these days.
