Honor 7 comes with 5.2 inch IPS NEO LCD capacitive 1080p display that is spread on 423 PPI. The screen quality is good and the viewing angles are great.

The size of the screen makes the phone smaller unlike other flagship smartphones in the market. The display covers 76.7% of the screen-to-body ratio which illusions the screen look larger when watching videos and playing games.

Processor, RAM & Operating System

Huawei powered Honor 7 with Hisilicon Kirin 935 Octa-Core processor clocking at two different core segment speeds i.e., 4*A53 at 2.2GHz and 4*A53 at 1.5GHz and is supported by 3 GB RAM and Mali-T628 MP4 GPU.

The configuration can run multiple tasks without any lag as the device comes with Android 5.1 based EMUI v3.1 (Emotion UI) on the board.


Honor 7 comes with 16 GB internal memory that can be expanded up to 128GB through micro SD card. In terms of memory, the device is a beast. It stands out in those few devices list that support expandability up to 128 GB.


Huawei Honor 7 comes with powerful 20 MP rear camera with dual-tone flash. It can take capture pictures filled over 5152x3888 pixels and can record 1080p videos at 30fps.

Honor 7 comes with an amazing 8 MP front camera with LED flash which is a treat for selfie lovers. If you are a selfie lover, you should consider this phone for sure.

Both the cameras can be operated over different modes and there are no special features except a couple of filters to talk much about.


Honor 7 is a single SIM phone, that too of Nano size which supports 4G/3G/2G networks. The SIM connector tray can hold a single Nano-SIM and a micro SD card at a time.

It has Bluetooth v4.1 with A2DP, EDR and LE support. It enables faster data transfer by consuming lower battery power. It also has Wi-Fi connectivity supporting 802.11 b/g/n with 2.4G speed.
