#407 in Cell Phones & Accessories (See Top 100 in Cell Phones & Accessories)
I have mixed feelings (still positive though) about this phone knowing fully well that it’s not a flagship phone and expectations should be toned down accordingly. Here are a few more updates
– Battery life: have uploaded three more pictures that show the Screen On Time (it’s amount of time screen was on and in use with battery starting at 100% and discharging to almost 0%). In my case, the battery discharged to 5% and the SOT was 4 hr 13 mins approx. This is not bad but it’s not good either given the battery capacity. This is running the screen at 50% brightness, not running power saving mode and using the phone to play a couple of heavy games, watching youtube video, browsing and then some social media (all in all that’s typical of an average user)
– Performance: This is also mixed. I played Asphault 8 for about 10 minutes. The battery drained faster which is expected but the phone also became hot (backside upper part). Without the case, it felt hotter. The performance after this was not good at all, perhaps because the processor was throttled due to it being hot. Without playing games, the phone performs good but after playing a heavy game, it didn’t perform well – apps took longer time to open and there was stutter in scrolling too
– Bluetooth: it was easy to connect to any bluetooth enabled device once the phone had bluetooth on so it’s all good here. However the issue was trying to switch on bluetooth from the pulldown menu. At least in my unit, it didn’t work though I tried multiple times. Maybe it’s a software defect. Will keep on trying.
– Selfie Camera: this can be easily put in good category. The selfie camera to me at least pulled in better pictures than my iPhone 7 plus in day time and in dim light past evening. That’s a major plus so happy with that.
– Sound quality through headphone jack: it was good, infact very good. I tried the AKG earphones that came with Galaxy Note 8 and the sound quality was at par with Note 8. So happy with it
I’ll certainly lower the rating from 4.5 to 4 with the processor throttling and bluetooth switch on issue. Otherwise the experience has been good so far.
DAY 1 UPDATES
I have always had flagship phones but was looking for a backup phone and thought that this would be a good candidate. I received this phone today so posting this review based on my initial impression of it. Will keep it very simple – what’s in the box, what’s there to like about this phone, what’s not so good about the phone
WHAT’S IN THE BOX
– Phone with 5.93 inch display, IPS LCD panel
– Charging brick and micro-USB cable
– A TPU transparent case
– SIM ejector tool
Note: like other Huawei phones, was expecting that this phone will have a pre-installed screen protector but there isn’t one
WHAT’S THERE TO LIKE ABOUT THIS PHONE
– Build Quality: it’s excellent to say the least. Holding this you can’t say that this is a $200 phone. It has a premium solid feel with no flex. Metal on the back and gorilla glass on the front
– Looks: the phone looks good with aluminium back that is blue (check out the pictures). From the front too, it looks and feels modern and follows the current trend of 18:9 aspect ratio.
– Fingerprint sensor: It’s lightening fast and has always worked up until now. So overall very good
– 3.5 mm audio jack: it’s there. Putting this in the things to like section because even the most premium and expensive phones don’t have this now. Example, iPhone, Huawei Mate 10 Pro, Google Pixel so it’s really a luxury now-a-days
– Software: this can be subjective for a lot of people but I do like EMUI software. The version is 5.1 which is not the latest but still EMUI is a good skin because it feels like a good mix of iPhone and Android (am a fan of iOS and this is a good mix)
– Call Quality: It’s very good. I am using T-mobile and getting a good signal in my area. It’s comparable to my Galaxy Note 8.
– Sound quality through bottom firing speaker: Again at this price, would definitely say that that sound quality is good. There’s just one bottom firing speaker but its plenty loud. Not a lot of bass but enough clarity
WHAT’S NOT SO GOOD ABOUT THIS PHONE
– Rear Camera at night: I have taken just a few shots from this camera, mostly night time – a few of them indoor and a few of them outdoor. In both cases the images are falling apart. Indoor images have a blur so unless you hold the phone steady, you won’t get a nice shot. Outdoor it doesn’t capture enough light and the results are grainy photos. Will try to post some samples.
– Use of micro-USB port for charging: In this day and age of USB type C, this phone comes with micro-USB. No way a deal breaker though. There’s no fast charging but again with the price, it’s ok
A few more things:
– Battery life: Though I have used this for a short period of time, the battery life at least for now appears to be good. After a couple of days, it would be possible to put this in the above two categories
– Performance: This phone comes with Andoid Nougat and not the latest Oreo. It’s a bit slower than flagship phones maybe due to the processor being mid-range. I know this phone shouldn’t be compared with a flagship phone.
– Rear camera in day time: yet to be tested during the day, will try to post some sample pictures
– Selfie camera: yet to be tested both in day time and night time so would update in next few days
– Sound Quality through headphone jack: would be able to update in next few days
I would have rated this 4.5 given that it’s not a flagship phone but that’s not an option. In the end rated this as 4 because it’s a bit behind in terms of both camera and performance

This thing is great!! It downloaded my 3 banking apps, credit card app, credit karma, Facebook, messenger, and pages all under six minutes. The UI is quite pleasant, as is all of the customization you can do to the phone itself. It’s speedy and efficient, and feels like an expensive phone.
No wonder Huawei is so big in Europe and India.

Some useful info.:
1. this phone came with a clear rubber case, so if you are not really care about the personality, the case is quite good.
2, there is curve on either side, so if you buy the screen protector, it may not easy to install.
3. it only support NANO sim card, NOT the micro sim card, so i need to change to a new card.
4. use the small pin provided to push out the side slot for SIM and microSD card.
5. support Daul sim card

Wow – I was not expecting this phone.
* Built Quality – it feels like a flagship
* Snappy performance – enough said
* Headphone jack – I’m a big user of bluetooth, but many times I don’t want the hassle
* Included case – another $20 that I don’t need to spend
* MicroSD slot – I like the option of more memory without having to pay extortion pricing for embedded memory
* Low phone stress: At this price, I don’t need to guard this phone like a Faberge egg (yes, I had to look up the spelling for that)
What’s not great and why it doesn’t matter to me (i.e. would I pay an additional $400+ to get these features)
* No Type-C: Yes, I’m trying to standardize on this but I’ve got plenty of microUSB devices now. I’m living in a mixed charger world for a while so I’m okay with it (but only this time)
* Not OLED: Yes, my Nexus 6P was brighter. But, fixing a cracked OLED cost more than this phone (so I lived with a cracked screen)
* Camera: I’m sure the camera isn’t as good as the flagships but it doesn’t move my $400 needle
* Bezel – it has a small bezel. Who cares.
* No fast charging: You need fast charging when your battery can’t get you through the day – this battery will more than get you through the day
* No 5GHz WiFi radio: It’s loading apps and streaming videos plenty fast for me now.
* No NFC: Since I can’t depend on vendors accepting Android Pay, I’ve always got my credit cards with me.
* Not waterproof: I’ll just continue to be careful with the phone.
* Not SnapDragon latest: As long as the performance is good – it doesn’t matter.
* I can’t remember how to spell Hawui: But, I feel superior to others in that I can pronounce it.
What’s not great and may not matter to you:
* Comes with Android 7, not Andriod 8. Given that only .2% of devices were on 8 you probably don’t care about this. For me, it’s inexcusable for a manufacturer to release a phone on an old OS. This is why when I transitioned from Apple to Android, I settled on the Google Nexus because I knew I would always get the latest. As a tech enthusiast, when I read about a new software feature that’s available, I need to have it. But, the reality is that, unlike the old days when new major versions of OS’s contained exciting and life-altering features, the last set of major releases have been kind of a yawn-fest. But, it’s still important to me and how Huewai keeps pace with the latest releases will be a factor if I choose them again.
Summing it up, great phone at a fantastic price. I would pay more if I needed to, but with the Honor 7x, it don’t. IMHO, if you are buying a flagship phone from Samsung/Apple/Google, you’re making a fashion statement.
(but, I’ll let you know if I change my opinion)
