Reviews for the Honor 7C

81% Honor 7C Smartphone Review | Notebookcheck
The letters make all the difference. The Honor 7C is a lower mid-range smartphone in large format with a modern full-view display. Unfortunately, the dual camera's second sensor has a very low resolution. Can we take that hit in exchange for this low price?

Honor 7C review

It’s odd that Honor is releasing the 7C phone at £169 when the Honor 7A is available for £139. However, this 7C adds dual cameras and a better chipset to entice you into spending £30 more.

The Honor 7C offers face unlock, dual rear cameras and a big screen on a serious budget, and that makes it worth considering.

Qualcomm Adreno 506: Integrated graphics card in the Snapdragon 625 SoC and based on the new 500-series architecture with support for Vulkan, OpenGL ES 3.1 + AE (3.2) and UBWC. Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
450: Lower mainstream octa-core ARM Cortex-A53 SoC clocked at up to 1.8 GHz and the Adreno 506 GPU, a LPDDR3 single channel memory controller as well as an X9 LTE (Cat. 7 300 / 150 Mbps) modem.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.

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.

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).

75.83%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
