Honor 7X was launched in India and was available from 7th December (yesterday) from Rs. 12,999. I bought this from Amazon, with available offers I got it for Rs. 11,800 (approx). The 7X was delivered today, and here is the Honor 7X unboxing and first impression.

Inside the box you will get the 7X, user manual, warranty card, data cable (USB to micro USB), silicon case for protection and travel charger 5V/2A. The SAR value was also mentioned – 1.23W/kg. Most of the specifications are clearly mentioned on the box.

For the price of Rs. 12,999 the Honor 7X looks great, it has got a premium look, looks royal in fact from every angle (check video). The dual cameras on the back are slightly out and they are designed to look good. There is finger print sensor too on the back.

Honor 7X unboxing

7X is Kirin 659 octa core powered. It’s using a metal body, blue looks cool. Handset weight is 165 grams, comfortable to hold and use. Screen is 5.93 inches but does not feel like, thanks to 18:9 aspect ratio. The 2.5D curved glass enhances the looks. Screen resolution is 2160 x 1080 pixels also called FULL HD+ resolution.

Honor 7X first impression

Color reproduction, viewing angles are great, touch is very smooth and responsive. There is LED notification, 4G with VoLTE is supported and so is OTG – you can connect external Pendrive.

I did use the camera 16MP + 2MP on the back (dual cameras) and 8MP on the front. Camera quality is not that happening as I expected, too early to conclude, wait forย  the full review coming up tomorrow, same time at 8PM.

  1. Got my honor 7x yesterday. Looks and screen is awesome. I just fall in love with screen. Camera is above average, struggle a bit in low light. Sound is also loud. Colour reproduction is also awesome

    1. Yep build finishing, screen all very good considering the price, in fact awesome camera wide aperture is not that perfect, for night shots try tripod its awesome with that.

      1. Its excellent, depends on the headphone you use. I will be coming up with the review of the headphone that I used with 7X soon, its a different kind.

  3. Very good Gogi Ji Aapka Review har phone ki Pol khol deta hai. Keep it up as your reviews form the basis for buying or discarding a smartphone. Thanks for helping smartphone users.

  4. Please do the sound test through decent earphones as well, i have heard it sounds bad through earphones. I am fond of music and want my phone to sound good, that is why i never wanted to part with my Lenovo vibe k5 note, but this one is tempting.

      1. Okay tell how to root this phone, mr expert. If hardware for audio is crap, this viper4android wont do much with sound quality. And if hardware is good, then nobody needs this app.

    1. How’s audio quality in vibe k5 compared to Redmi note 4 via headphones? Does dolby atmos in k5 have improved audio?

  5. Other reviewers also saying that 7x camera quality is not that good, not even as 6x. May be they compromised the camera for the screen.

    1. Wait for 3-4 days….. Till i receive my 7x.. And i bet it’s camera is better than g5s plus… Many reviewers say different things any MI A1 camera is best but 7x camera is comparable… And its image quality is better than A1

    1. Worst..it doesn’t even have any stable custom roms..kirin sucks for gaming..not a great performer

  6. Which will you recommend mi A1 or Honor 7x. I prefer heavy gaming camera is not that important for me but it should be above average.

        1. If the buyer isn’t bothered about the 16:9 display, why are you so concerned? No need to unnecessarily influence others.

    1. Ofcuz mi A1 .But i will suggest u to buy Redmi note 4 as it has bigger battery nd games eat lot battery so.
