First impressions

The phone will start selling on Flipkart 15 October onward. Launched first in China in June, the phone was then released in the European market. The phone sports a fingerprint sensor at the back and has a sturdy metal unibody design. The curved edges of the phone make it easy and comfortable to hold.

The phone works smoothly and shows hardly any lags anywhere. The interface of Honor 7 is impressive and offers good viewing angles.

The touch sensitivity is also good.

The device comes with 3GB of RAM which makes it easier to handle multiple tasks.

The knuckle up feature lets one capture a screenshot by just knocking twice on the screen. The camera takes decent photos in a well-lit setting.

The Huawei device is a decent buy with a premium body and high-end features. The price tag is mid-ranged and best for all those who are planning to buy a flagship phone at a not-so hefty price.
