Huawei Honor 7

Huawei is another great Chinese mobile phone company in that they, along with Xiaomi, has created numerous mid-range phones that offer better specs than more prominent manufacturers out there.

In this article, we will talk about the Huawei Honor 7. I am very pleased with the design of this mobile phone mainly because of its metallic unibody frame. A lot of Chinese mobile phone companies have employed this design aspect even to their mid-range line ups and I think that more prominent companies should take notes.

Not only does a metallic unibody design speaks of more durability but it also provides a premium aesthetic as well. The Huawei Honor 7 also has a ceramic-coated finish to help in gripping the phone with ease.

It only has a thickness of 8.5mm and it weighs at only 160 grams. It is a little bit on the heavy side but it does provide a premium feel and heft to it.

The display of the Huawei Honor 7 is also really, really good. The Android mobile phone comes with a 5.2-inch IPS screen with a resolution of 1920×1080 and a pixel count of 424 ppi. The mobile phone company also boasts of a whopping 1500:1 contrast ratio and an 85% color saturation rate for a truly stunning visual experience.

The performance aspect of the phone is also quite impressive. The Huawei Honor 7 is packed with an octa-core HiSilicon Kirin 935 processor which has a clock speed of 2.2GHz. Couple that with the Mali-T628 GPU and a hefty 3GB of RAM, and you’ve got a great mid-range phone with impressive multitasking capabilities.

This mobile phone also has a 4G LTE support and it also comes with some wealthy additions such as NFC, dual-SIM slots, a microSD card support of up to 128GB, 16 to 64GB of Internal storage, and a fingerprint scanner.

It is nice to see fingerprint scanners readily made available on mid-range mobile phones. Fingerprint scanners are a godsend for people who want to add an extra layer of security to their mobile phones.

The Huawei Honor 7’s fingerprint scanner is very impressive as it has good sensitivity and it also acts as a swipe gesture sensor as well. The swipe sensor allows you to do some of the phone’s functionality by swiping your finger on it (without touching the screen or the sensor). For example, you can swipe your finger down and it will show you the notifications panel. Pretty cool, huh?

The Huawei Honor 7 is no slouch either. This mobile phone comes with a 20-megapixel rear camera with a dual-tone LED flash and an aperture of f/2.0. It also comes with an 8-megapixel front camera with an aperture of f/2.4.

To complement the Huawei Honor 7’s camera, it also comes with a nice camera application with various photo enhancements such as the Panorama, Super Night mode, among others.

The Huawei Honor 7 is a truly impressive mid-range phone that houses not only great specs but also a great screen and camera as well. It also comes with a much-needed fingerprint scanner that also acts as a swipe gesture scanner as well.

This mobile phone only costs $380. For the price, it is a killer deal.
