Reviews for the Honor 7S

78% Honor 7S Smartphone Review | Notebookcheck
The Honor 7S is a budget entry-level smartphone with Android Oreo and dual SIM support. The hardware configuration leads one to believe that the smartphone is likely to be fairly slow. To find out if this is true, read on.
50% Honor 7S review: You get what you pay for
Source: Gadget Show English
At a price of Rs 6,999, Honor 7S offers solid build, satisfactory display, an acceptable camera and battery life. However, the performance of the phone could have been better. Price could be the plus point for the Honor 7S as it packs most of the features a first-time buyer is seeking. The main aim of Honor launching so many smartphones – including the 7S – is to give Xiaomi a run for its money.

62% Huawei Honor 7S Review
Source: Think Digit English
The Honor 7s comes out as just another budget smartphone with nothing really special about it. The taller display is surely one of those things that are trickling down to the entry-level segment, but the inadequate memory and storage is an instant deal-breaker. OEMs should realise that running a full-fledged version of Android (that too with a customised skin on top) with 2GB RAM and 16GB storage isn’t a pleasurable experience. Perhaps if this was powered by Google’s Android Oreo (Go Edition), the experience wouldn’t have been so sluggish. Either way, it would be difficult to recommend this phone to anyone. Instead, I’d suggest to spend a bit more and get the Honor 7A or the Xiaomi Redmi 6 Pro.

60% Honor 7S Review
Source: NDTV Gadgets English
Honor has tried to deliver a low-cost phone with attractive features, and while it does look quite good, we found actual usage to be frustrating on multiple levels. Even some of last year's phones at this price level deliver better features and performance. Buyers are likely to be turned off by the lack of a fingerprint sensor and the weak specifications before they even get their hands on this phone. Camera quality was particularly disappointing, and many people specifically look for phones that support 4G on both SIMs.

60% Honor 7S review: A budget smartphone yes, but how does it perform?
Source: The Indian Express English
Honor 7S comes with a neat design, solid build quality and feels good for its price. In case you prefer a handset with good design, bright and nice display, Honor 7S can be an ideal pick. Even though the phone packs a single rear camera module it performs well in most situations. Further, you get a front-facing camera with LED flash support which is hard to find in this price range. It even bundles decent battery backup that promises a day’s worth of usage.

Honor 7S first impressions: A new kid in the block
Source: The Indian Express English
Overall, Honor 7S offers a decent pack of features for a budget smartphone. It directly competes with Xiaomi Redmi 5A which also comes with similar configurations.

Honor 7S First Impressions: A mobile for 1st time smartphone users
Source: The Mobile Indian English
Honor 7S is clearly targeted at the first-time smartphone users and the company has priced it accordingly. Which we think is a bit steep. The phone comes loaded with a decent design and the display looks good as well. The camera performance is decent, though you should expect great performance from the processor. That said, the phone will face a stiff competition with the likes of Xiaomi Redmi 5A, Yu Ace, Infinix Smart 2 and 10.Or D2.

The Huawei development team has obviously been hard at work of late as can be seen by the release of the company’s Honor 7S model.

50% Honor 7s review: Looks great, performs terribly
Source: Android Central English
The Honor 7s has a great look to it, far beyond its super-low price tag. But good looks, a nice display, and a somewhat decent camera cannot save this phone from its biggest flaw. It's slow, slow, slow.

66% Honor 7S review: good looking, but so very slow
Source: Android Guys English
We should note that the phone is not currently available in the US. However, if you are in Europe you can grab it for €119 in select countries. At this point, we don’t know whether Honor has any plans of launching the handset in the States. So for the time being, customers in the country who are looking for a budget phone can opt for the Honor 7X, which offers improved specs at a slightly higher price point.

Honor 7S review: Your grandma deserves better
Source: Android Authority English
So that’s it for our Honor 7S review. If it weren’t for the poor performance, I could suggest this as a gift for your Grandma or someone else who doesn’t need any high-end features. As it is, I wouldn’t wish this on your Grandma.

A cheap phone that runs like an even cheaper one. One to avoid.

50% Honor 7S review
Source: PC Advisor English
The bottom line is that the Honor 7S is a slow phone. If you don’t mind waiting those few extra seconds for apps to open and pages to load is worth the immense saving of buying a £99 phone, then you’ll be alright.

Huawei's Honor 7S is about as affordable as phones get
Source: CNet English
The latest Honor phone though, the 7S, is truly a phone for those on a tight budget. It'll sell for just £99 in the UK, where it's now available. Though there's no word on an Australian or US release, that price roughly translates to $129 and AU$175.

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.


Honor:

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).


61.78%: Such a bad rating is rare. There exist hardly any notebooks, which are rated worse.
