The Honor X7 is packaged in a blue matte hardboard box with a white logo.
Appearance and usability
Design-wise, the Honor X7 looks more like a novelty from Huawei’s Nova 2 series than the top-of-the-line Honor 9 model. Its most prominent feature is a luxurious, mirrored glass back, but the case is entirely made of brushed metal.
Smartphones with 6-inch displays are not elegant, miracles cannot happen. Honor 7X has a large, heavy body and matte metal surfaces that are very easy to grip on dry hands. Despite the smooth surfaces, fingerprints are extremely noticeable.
Besides sloping edges, the protective glass also features an LED event indicator. In this case, the screen is not rounded in the corners, as is the case with many other “full-screen” devices with displays larger than 6 inches due to reduced frames.
This is not a “frameless” smartphone, as such “full-screen” smartphones are now called. It still has a frame around the screen. Some of the new products with 18:9 screens may seem to have more comprehensive sides, although the top and bottom segments are usually only a centimetre wide or even more. That is the truth, and we should be encouraged. However, these smartphones do not come equipped with a fingerprint scanner or hardware touch buttons.
A fingerprint scanner has been relocated to the back, its round platform is located next to the eyes of the dual camera. Even though the two cameras have the same diameter and are positioned symmetrically, it still looks worse than if they were combined behind a single glass, like the iPhone Plus series. An LED flash is also located on the back of the camera.
The lenses protrude beyond the surface, but the back wall area is so large (while it has no bevels) that the smartphone lying on the table almost does not sway when you touch the screen. Of course, you can work in this way quite easily with a smartphone.
It is possible to install two SIM cards in your smartphone (both Nano-SIM formats) or to use a microSD memory card in place of one of them.
There are no complaints about the mechanical buttons on the right side. They are large and comfortable.
The honor x7 smartphone is available in three colors: black, blue and gold.
