Android version and market relevance

Honor 7S was announced by the company Honor in May 2018 and in the same year official sales began in stores. The device was placed in the series of smartphones Honor 7. Honor 7S works on Android 8.1 Oreo, but, unfortunately, this version of the software has not been updated. And before listing all the main characteristics of this model, it is important to note that in Honor 7S implemented support for working with two SIM cards.

And if you want to look at the competitors of this smartphone, then in our catalog on the page “Smartphones of the year 2018” all models of the same year are presented. And it will also be useful to look at the page with smartphones at a similar price, like Honor 7S — this is the price segment page “Affordable smartphones from $100 to $200”.

Screen, body and battery

LCD touchscreen with a diagonal 5.45″ mounted on the front panel Honor 7S, thickness 8.3 mm.

The battery in Honor 7S is installed on 3 020 mAh. It can be said that by today′s standards, such a volume is the minimum acceptable, we recommend looking at other smartphones with a powerful battery.

Main camera and selfie camera

The smartphone Honor 7S has two cameras: main camera (13 MP with a regular lens) and front-camera (5 MP with a regular lens). If you look at the quality of the photo of the main camera, then it will be medium-quality photos and videos.

In this smartphone, the front camera is located as usual at the top of the screen, like in 99.9% of other models. We have collected smartphones with pop-up front camera in the catalog that may seem much more interesting to you. In these models, there are practically no frames around the screen, because the front camera is located inside the case and does not take up space above the screen. The selfie camera only pops up when you activate the front camera mode. Take a photo or video, exit the Camera application. And after that, the socket with the front camera drives into the body. Real engineering magic!

Processor and Internal Memory

And write a few words about the performance of Honor 7S. Of course, the very first thing that will be discussed is the processor. The model received a 4-core processor Mediatek MT6739.

The second performance characteristic in our opinion is the amount of RAM. The Honor 7S has 2 installed on the RAM.

The built-in flash memory of this model has the volume 16 GB The manufacturer did not forget about the support of memory cards in the smartphone. Here you can install a card microSDXC.

Price for Honor 7S: buy or not to buy?

The smartphone Honor 7S got into our price segment “Affordable smartphones from $100 to $200” and began to be sold in May 2018 at a price of $110. Evaluation of the characteristics, probably, you have already folded, and if not, here is our result. Honor 7S is a fast smartphone with a large screen and a cool main camera, and the front camera did not turn out super cool. And to all this we add that the battery here is absolutely normal.

Is it worth buying now this model of the smartphone, we are talking about our status “Droid-or-Junk”. Of course, at the beginning of sales, almost every smartphone becomes a Droid, and we advise buying such models. But over time, the situation is changing, no one updates the Android version in the smartphone, and in six months or a year this smartphone can already become a Junk. In this case, we advise you to go to the DROID smartphones page in our catalog, where we always show the most current models on sale for today. There are variants from different price segments, so you will have plenty to choose from.
