Reviews for the Honor 7A

81.7% Honor 7A Smartphone Review | Notebookcheck
Extremely affordable. With the 7A, Honor promises an affordable smartphone with a large display area. In addition, the smartphone offers some particular functions such as dual SIM with a separate microSD card reader, and a surround mode. You can find out in our test, whether these are just gimmicks or whether the Honor 7A is really convincing.

A great look and set of features for the money, especially if you like face unlock, but sometimes slow.

Honor 7A and Honor 7S, First Take: False economies?
Source: English
Buying an ultra-low cost smartphone might prove to be a false economy. Frustration with laggy response times, poor cameras or short battery life could deter you from using a handset in the first place, which means missing out on what a smartphone can offer. Alternatively you might decide to upgrade to something better and consign the inferior phone to the back of a drawer.

This is somewhat of a surprise to me, having recently told you about the London worldwide launch of the Honor 10 to be offered the chance to review the Honor 7A was not exactly what I was expecting still here are my thoughts. Looking online sees that it was launched in April 2018.

Honor 7A Hands On, Quick Review: The Newest Budget Phone in Town
Source: Unbox English
The Honor 7A has an SRP of Php 6,990. At that price, it is facing a tough competition. To give you some perspective, the 2GB variant of Xiaomi’s Redmi 5 sells for Php 5,799 at Shopee, while the 2GB variant of OPPO’s A83 sells for Php 6,990.

70% Honor 7A review: Good-looking budget phone, but there are some misses
Source: The Indian Express English
Honor 7A is in line with most budget offerings in the market and it comes with dual rear cameras, which is a plus. However, the phone misses out on performance, which is a crucial factor for me while choosing a good phone. In this aspect, Redmi 5 has a slight edge over Honor 7A given the overall performance. Those willing to spend an extra Rs 1,000 can go for Redmi Note 5, which packs a slightly better, though older the Snapdragon 625 processor. It features a single 12MP rear camera, though the results are good. Honor also has the Honor 7C, with dual-rear cameras and full display in a similar price range.

Priced at Rs 8,999, the Honor 7A is a good package with dual camera, EMUI, decent looks and good battery. While the camera needs a bit of improvement in low light performance, Honor 7A offers a good package for people looking to buy a budget smartphone.

50% Honor 7A Review: Entry-level Luxury?
Source: Recombu English
At £139, the Honor 7A is a commendable entrant in the affordable smartphone space. It undercuts entrants like its launch sibling the Honor 7C, the Honor 9 Lite and Motorola’s new G6 Play but for that extra level of affordability, sacrifices have been made. It stands out for that elongated display at such a low price point but beyond that, it feels like a wholly forgettable handset.

Honor 7A and 7C Review: A Seven Point Summary
Source: Tech PP English
Both the Honor 7A and 7C are contenders in the sub-Rs 10,000 category with the 7A, in particular, being a great option for anyone seeking an 18:9 aspect ratio display, dual cameras, and face unlock at a relatively affordable price from a high-profile brand. The 7C has a much tougher battle to fight but it remains one of the better options for anyone seeking a good device for under Rs 10,000. And that is not really a bad place to be, believe us.

75% Honor 7A review: A jack of all trades
Source: India Today English
The Honor 7A feels really good, has a modern display that works well when you're out and about, it metes out decent all-round performance, and it comes with capable dual cameras. The Honor 7A also has the latest in software, and a battery that should last one full day for most users. Clearly, the Honor 7A is a jack of all trades, and a viable alternative to Xiaomi's best in-class Redmi 5. It may not be the best phone that you can buy under Rs 10,000, but, it's right up there and should definitely be on your list if you're out to buy a new budget phone.

This display is quite big for a smartphone but frequently used for smartphones.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.  

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.

0.15 kg:

Only few smartphones are more lightweight than this.


In 2014 Huawei created the sub brand Honor and offers certain smartphone series under this name. Occasionally the products are also called Huawei Honor.

The market share of Honor products is manageable, but there are several reviews on Honor smartphones with average ratings (as of 2016).

66.62%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
