It is overpriced for the hardware it offers compared to Zenfone Max Pro M1 and Redmi Note 5 Pro. Their 4GB ram/ 64 GB storage variants are priced at 13k and 15k respectively. Anybody who buys them won't have to stick with stock rom because of sufficient developer support. Also there is option of 4k video recording, gyroscope and higher battery capacity (5000 mAh and 4000 mAh respectively). These are the improvements the 7x's successor must have at lower prices and stock android to give any competition to their successors.
 
Honor 7X was great when it was launched as the competition had 16:9 display & similar performance SoC. But now it's not a good choice as its competitors have bigger hence better battery life(4000 or 5000mAh), better SoC (S636) & lower price.

RN5 Pro 4GB/64GB costs 15k vs 16k of 7X & provides a better SoC, camera & battery life. Even Xiaomi doesn't push android upgrades to old devices, MIUI upgrades for 2-3 years is a big thing especially for the price of the device. Similarly, Asus Zenfone Max Pro 4GB/64GB provides a much better battery life & stock android experience at 13k (cost of base variant of 7X).

For Honor 8X (if its named that), I'd say realistically you guys should try to lower the price so that it can compete in that segment, change the design a bit (slimmer bezels would be nice), 4000mAh battery & quick charging will make it a great phone. 10 or 11k for base 3/32GB variant would be good or just keep the price same, cut the cost of 7X by 3k & put something like a telephoto camera to make it stand out from the competition (B/W sensor is as useless as a depth sensor for a common person).

With a price cut of 7X you guys could have easily taken away customers from Asus & Xiaomi as people get frustrated by the flash sale model.

Honor 7X: An overview (part II)

Of course, there’s a lot more to the Honor 7X than just the display and cameras. Here’s a quick look at some other features of the smartphone.

ZBLAqJU6c9058meY106OL-XpAJ8_7hrVdYoWVC4ZtN_7q5K3lgWY7ScGNbZIQPiNCxeU-dgNX2D1aHYp9f-WjyjEHOCAWlzJxLjyRbkg4pjweX6uum6_traQSD1Q0yeFMz5zQr1k

The Honor 7X has also been smartly designed. the phone sports a very minimalist and subtle design that should appeal to most tastes.

Underneath, the phone is powered by a HiSilicon Kirin 659 SoC. This chipset is manufactured using the 16nm process, which offer better performance and efficiency as compared similar chipsets manufactured using the 28nm process.

For memory, The Honor 7X features up to 4GB RAM and 64GB of inbuilt memory. The internal storage can be further expanded by 256GB via a microSD card.

When it comes to battery life, the Honor 7X sports a 3340mAh battery. The battery life is further aided by the efficiency of the Kirin 659 SoC’s 16nm manufacturing process.

So what do you think about the hardware powering the Honor 7X? What other improvements should Honor make with the phone’s successor? Sound off in the comments below.

Even at 15k, RN5 Pro is just better at everything.

At 12k, people will most likely opt for Asus Zenfone Max Pro even though that one has an inferior front camera but has a better SoC, battery life & cheaper by 1k. Not to forget the stock android which is always considered superior by many people (I feel EMUI is properly optimized).

So what do you guys think of the Honor 7X?
To look at the Honor 7X it’s nice and functional if not exactly jaw-dropping. The biggest selling point in terms of aesthetics is definitely the 82.9% screen-to-body ratio. As per 2018 trend to reduce the chin.
The rounded edges and weighty metal also make this a phone that feels good to hold in the hand.
On the plus side, the Honor 7X manages to keep up with yet another current trend by featuring dual lenses.

What improvements do you think should be made with its successor?
On default settings, photos lack color and punch and they feature a very square 4:3 resolution. In order to enjoy a more palatable 18:9, you need to drop the megapixels from 16 down to 11. There’s also a lack of sharpness in some shots.

Plus, please improve the UI it's not good. Everyone who uses the smartphone, their first impression is the upper slider and it doesn't look good, kinda feels overlapped.

This would've been ok but there are phones running on SoCs made on 14nm process and having larger battery capacity in the same price range.

From what I remember, sensors are made using circular wafers, so square is the best use of a circular wafer but companies producing sensors makes it 4:3 as its close to a square. 4:3 just also became more popular because the old displays were 4:3. They continued using that. Samsung S6 had a 16:9 sensor but they reverted back to 4:3 in S7.

The 18:9 images crop out top & bottom part of the pic. Some people like it, others try to get the full picture & crop it if required.

Honestly I think Honor is trying to milk the Kirin 659 a bit too much .
The amount of phones with this chipset is far too may .
I guess they are now introducing a Honor 9 lite like phone with a notch with the same chipset .
Honor if you really would like to taste success , introduce a dual 4g chipset in that price range. .
Else simply use SD 636 .
Cheers !

This is the same as Xioami using snapdragon 625 on every mid range phones. They have it in excess so only way to not let them go waste is use them. No other manufacturer uses kirin processors.

Honor has a history of offering phones with a dual-camera setup. When it came to the Honor 7X, Honor decided to up the ante from its predecessor by offering a 16MP + 2MP combination. By comparison, the Honor 6X offered a 12MP + 2MP setup.

As you might already know, the primary 16MP sensor is used for capturing image details. The 2MP secondary unit is used to capture information of depth of field.

Honor says that it has made significant advances in its dual-camera algorithms. This means that the Honor 7X offers major improvements over its predecessor in terms of imaging quality.

Besides a Wide Aperture mode, the Honor 7X also comes with Portrait Mode. This mode blurs the background, thereby making the subject stand out.

Honor says that the Honor 7X has end optimally configured to offer faster camera startup, faster shutter speeds, and shorter intervals in continuous shooting. The phone also comes with PDAF for faster focusing.

At the front is an 8MP front camera. Like the rear camera, it too comes with Portrait Mode. Honor also adds that when taking selfies, the beautification algorithms are customised for different genders.

Gcam does this with a single lens and pics don't come out as artificial. Take help from google for improving post processing algorithm.

Enable Auto HDR+ by default and don't make it as a filter. Don't lockdown the video resolution to 1080p30. Get EIS and OIS.

Now days due to increase in competition in Mobil e phone sector. Lot of Mid end Smartphone players like Oppo, MI, Vivo, Lenovo and Motorola are focusing on Camera Quality.
As Oppo says its the master of Front Camera which is enabled with special feature with AI or Beauty mode, Motorola has focused on dual camera setup (Moto X4 and latest G6) which Motorola says is a master in taking wide angle photos, Vivo always says it has best front camera i.e. Moonlight camera. MI says that it's MIA1 Smartphone has got best rear camera in the market which is equivalent to DSLR...Honor says that it's Honor 7x has got best Dual camera setup in budget phone segment..
But none of these brands has focused on Low Light camera which is very must needed during parties, functions, Candle Light dinner etc..
I think at present Samsung Galaxy S9, S8 and S7 edge has got best low light camera in High end Mobile phone segment. I think Honor should focus on introducing best Low Light camera phone in the range of 18000 to 25000 (Mid Segment) which can give a tough competition to other Mid Segment mobile manufacturers instead of focusing on Dual camera setup...I wish that Honor 7x successor shud be launched with Good Low Light camera setup..

Like all other smartphone manufacturers, the Honor aims to improve their offering with each generation. Case in point being the Honor 7X, which aims to offer much of the same that the Honor 6X brought to the table, but with newer and improved features.

The most obvious difference between the two phones is the display aspect ratio. The Honor 7X sports the popular 18:9 aspect ratio as compared to the 16:9 aspect ratio offered by the Honor 6X.

The new aspect ratio allows the Honor 7X to offer a large screen, which still being relatively ergonomic. While the Honor 6X offers a 5.5-inch display, its successor is able to offer a 5.93-inch display.

In terms of the build, the Honor 7X forgoes its predecessor's plastic-and-metal sandwich design in favor of an all-metal unibody. Honor claims that the unibody is made using nano-molding technology. The Honor 7X is also 0.6mm thinner than the 6X.

The Honor 7X also improves upon the 6X in the camera department. While both phones feature dual-rear cameras, the Honor 7X sports a 16MP+2MP setup as compared to the 12MP+2MP configuration found on the Honor 6X.
