Discover Huawei's incredible Honor 7 smartphone... and Win one for yourself!

Samsungs, iPhones, LG’s…. we’ve tried them all over the years, clinging on to the big brand names in the hope of not being disappointed, but you know what? Sometimes going for something a little different is no bad thing, especially when you can get something exceptional for an unbelievably good price.

Enter the new Honor 7.  Like its predecessor (the Honor 5), is an elegantly designed device with a very premium finish, which for a £250 handset is incredibly impressive. From the harmonized component positioning for intuitive operation to the optimised 5.2” display, every element of the design has been analysed and perfected to produce Honor’s most complete device to date.

The back of the device has been ceramic sand blasted to create a tactile premium brushed metal finish with raised Honor branding.

In order to maintain a clean design the Honor 7 features dual SIM support on a single tray. The 2nd SIM bay also doubles as the SD card holder. There is also an additional fully customisable Smart Key on the left of the device which enables the user quick access to different applications instantly through single/ double, long key press.  There’s also a finger print reader.

The Honor 7 boasts a 20MP rear facing camera as well as an 8MP front facing camera. The 20MP rear camera features the latest Sony IMX 230 sensor providing fast auto-focus capability in an incredible 0.1 seconds. This is finished with a Sapphire lens cover to protect your ultra-sharp camera from scuffs, and we love this - Honor have included a fantastic suit of camera filters to enable you to enhance your images and help you to push creative boundaries with features such as Silky Water, Tail Light Tracking, Time Lapse and Light Painting as well as a dedicated 'Food Mode' for the foodies out there. The 8MP front facing camera comes with an added soft light function and 3rd Gen. Beautification mode to ensure brighter and better selfies every time. As with the Honor 6+, the Honor 7 comes with the double tap feature on the volume down key allowing you to take instant photos.


The Honor 7 is equiped with a very generous 3100Mah battery, meaning you’ll make it to the end of the day without it dying on you.  When combiined with the power saving software a 'moderate user' can expect to see up to 2 days of usage before recharging. The Honor 7 also features a very useful reverse charging function which, with the use of an OTG cable, enables the user to charge other devices such as small tablets, MIFI's and other handets from the Honor 7. The device does have fast charge capability with the appropriate charger (available to purchase).

We know that when choosing a mobile phone, it’s easy to go for the big names but trust us when we say the Honor is a gem of a smartphone that oozes quality and is a dream to use.  

Our verdict:  4.5 out of 5.
