Honor 7X Review – The £269 Smartphone

Rating: 8.0.

Looking back over 2017, one of the biggest smartphone trends has undoubtedly been the move towards ‘bezel-less’ phones. Apple, Samsung, LG, Google and more have all cut their phones’ bezels down to an absolute minimum to give you more screen in a smaller chassis. However, for those who can’t afford the latest flagship device, a bezel-less phone has simply not been a possibility. Until now, that is, thanks to the Honor 7X.

At £269 here in the UK, the Honor 7X is several hundreds of pounds cheaper than the likes of the Pixel 2 XL, the iPhone X or the Galaxy Note 8. For that money, though, you still get a premium aluminium body, a dual-camera setup and that glorious 18:9 ‘full view’ display.

Just how good is this thing, and it should it be the new go-to device for consumers with less than £300 to spend? Let’s find out.
