Honor as a brand is making somewhat of a name for itself, thanks to the premium design and build quality that their products offer. The Honor 7 is no exception to this.
This is not some cheap, flimsy plastic product. The Honor 7 is a precision engineered piece of mobile technology, using asymmetric keys; it is the small details that have been thought about.
Aluminium is the key component in the frame of this phone into which the screen and vital parts come together to complete the Honor 7.
Simple touches like a concaved power key add a styling touch to the device, but also make for a practical solution in that the fingertip naturally sits in this position and receives responsive feedback.
Powered by an octa-core processor clocked at 2.2GHz and supported by 3GB of RAM, the Honor 7 will easily handle even the most demanding tasks you may throw at it, whether that be games or business tools you are using the device for.
Can’t find or need something from your phone? Wake it up with your voice and it will let you know where it is. What you name your phone to wake it up can be personalised too.
Honor Smart Key
We all have features of a phone we use more often than others and whilst shortcuts on the home screen can help, a physical button can, on occasions, be even easier. Honor recognises this and, with the Smart Key, you can access 2 different functions, one with a short press and another with a long press.
Imagine setting a short press to launch Google Voice. Within seconds you can be searching the web and getting results with a single tap and by using your natural language. No need to type.
Android & EMUI
Running Google Android 5 (Lollipop) the Honor 7 has applied a skin that has been created by Honor to not only look different but offer you more.
Simple touches such as being able to draw on screen to access apps or pinch into the screen to hide apps.
Add your Google account and sync your contacts, emails, calendar appointments and more within minutes.
Social media accounts, work email, file sharing services can all be added to the device, as can your favourite free or paid for apps via Google Play Store.
Services such as Google Maps allow for street level navigation whilst Play Music and Movies can bring media to your device too.
To name just one of the innovative features you can take a screenshot of the whole screen with a double tap of the knuckle and then to crop to just a section of that, just draw on the screen.
Over and above the standard security features that include PIN codes and pattern locks, the Honor 7 is the first phone to have a non-metallic-ring fingerprint module that offers a faster and more precise fingerprint unlock.
Placed on the back of the phone under the camera module, the scanner intelligently learns your fingerprint and can be activated at any angle and is able to unlock the phone in a staggering 0.5s.
If you like nothing more than capturing the moment, the Honor 7 has what you need to do that but capture it in such a way you really feel you can re-live the moment later.
Poorly lit, grainy or contrast lacking images will be a thing of the past.
Using an incredible sensor the 20 megapixel rear camera on the Honor 7 has a super fast focus time of just 01.s and a dual tone LED flash to illuminate the scene in low light environments.
To capture a photo really fast, just double click on the volume down key to launch and capture an image.
As with any rear mounted camera, unless the lens itself is protected, often by being recessed into the body of the phone then it is possible the lens will scratch and in turn affect the image results. The solution? Use a Sapphire lens, one of the strongest materials available and virtually scratchproof.
Built into the sensor is an array of technology both in the form of hardware and software that boosts the image results but offers up filter options. Just a couple of examples are a ‘demist filter’ that will remove the haze of smog that you get in some cityscape photos. ‘Food mode’ enhances colours to give a more vivid but realistic view of what it actually looks like. ‘Light painting’ allows the creative to have a bit of fun creating unique shots which always capture the attention of others. ‘Taillight Track, Silky Water and Star Track’ are all additional modes that give that soft trailing light affect, each best used in different scenarios.
If a 20 megapixel camera on the back was not enough, a front facing camera with a resolution of 8 megapixels with additional software enhancements allow you to create that perfect selfie.
A 4G enabled device the Honor 7 benefits from the best in mobile technology and antenna performance.
As the parts inside the Honor are made by Huawei, who also manufacture a large proportion of the technology used in getting a mobile phone signal to you from your network provider, their knowledge and expertise allows for devices to boast great reception and in turn more efficient power usage.
The Honor 7 has 2 antennas on board and intelligently switches between them to get the best performance.
As is expected, the Honor 7 has WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS and MicoUSB connectivity.
Another feature included is an Infrared Remote control, which, after a simple setup, allows you to control audio visual equipment and more right from your phone, no need to hunt around for specific remotes you have, just use the one thing you always carry, your phone.
Fixed internally is a 3100mAh battery which is comparably sized to most other smartphones with similar specifications. However, the efficient power usage Honor employ allows you to get good usage times from the phone.
Inevitably there will be times when you are short of power and you need to charge fast. The good news here is that, with the provided mains adapter, you can charge the phone for 5 minutes to get enough power for an hours phone call, whilst 30 minutes of fast charging gives 50% power.
All features and capabilities considered the Honor 7 is an inexpensive smartphone bearing in mind the features that have been included.
