Why Honor 7X is the best phone under 15k

Buying a smartphone in an aspirational price range of under Rs 15,000 is no cake walk. However, think about a smartphone with an original unibody design, bezel-less display, dual camera, fluid UI, and one which packs a muscle for your mobile gaming needs. Wish for such a smartphone and its already available today- Honor 7x.


While the aluminium body is the in-thing in the sub-Rs 15,000 smartphones, Honor 7x manages to stand out from the rest. The unibody aluminium with rounded edges and sides. There are no sharp edges on its body which carries a matte finish for a comfortable grip.

The Honor 7x features a 5.93-inch display supporting FHD+ (2160x1080 pixels) resolution. This bezel-less display is made using 2.5D curved glass and offers an uncommon 18:9 aspect ratio. Along with excellent colour profiles and sunlight legibility, the screen features eye comfort mode which tones down the blue light filter. The ultra-wide portrait mode comes in handy for an immersive gaming as well as a movie experience.

If the tall display makes you uncomfortable, then the Honor 7x runs EMUI 5.1 on Android 7.0 Nougat carrying clever optimizations such as single-hand mode. The split screen mode enables simultaneous usage of two apps by stacking them together. Also, two WhatsApp and Facebook instances of two different accounts are possible with the App Twin option. Transferring data from an old phone to the Honor 7x is swiftly possible by scanning a QR code.

A tall glass display and unibody metal design harmoniously sandwich a powerful hardware inside. The Honor 7x packs a new octa-core Kirin 659 chipset integrating Mali T830-MP2 GPU chip to handle the graphics. This mobile processor follows the ARM's big.LITTLE architecture for allocating the processor core resources as per the requirement dynamically. Need the power to run a graphics-heavy game? Go for it. Otherwise, the processor runs on the bare minimum to keep power consumption low and the innards cool.

The Honor 7x follows the tradition by packing dual cameras at the back. The dual camera setup includes a 16-megapixel primary camera with a LED flash and a 2-megapixel secondary camera to click photos in Portrait, Wide Aperture and Moving Picture mode. Apart from recording Full HD videos using the dual-cameras, the camera app allows taking images in a variety of still shot modes. Inadvertently proving why two cameras are better than one. The front-facing 8-megapixel camera is capable of rousing the selfie-frenzy folks with a plethora of Effects and gestures support.

The 16nm Kirin 659 processor also intelligently manages power consumption of the 3340mAh battery inside the phone. Of course, the Ultra Power Saving Mode comes in handy during crucial situations.

The Honor 7x packs many features that exist mostly in the premium range handsets. Most importantly, the overall EMUI and the sleek design experience bundles a promise of a hiccup-free delight of using it. Your search for a kick-ass sub Rs 15,000 phone ends at Honor 7x.
