Review: HONOR X7a


There are many factors one needs to consider before buying a smartphone, one of which is battery life. A smartphone with a long battery life will allow you to go about your day without having to worry about running out of power at a critical moment. With this in mind, HONOR has launched its new X7a, which comes with a huge 6000mAh battery, that promises 3 days of battery life on a single charge.

The overall design and build quality of the X7a is quite good, considering it comes in at a very pocket-friendly price of AED 599. The phone weighs just 196 gms. On the front, you get a 6.74-inch HONOR FullView Display that offers an aspect ratio of 20:9. The display also offers a refresh rate of up to 90Hz, a resolution of 1600-by-720 pixels, and a 90.07% screen-to-body ratio.

On the right edge, you get the volume buttons and the power button, which also doubles up as a fingerprint scanner. On the top edge, you get the dual SIM slot and a noise-cancelling microphone. On the bottom edge, you get the 3.5mm audio jack, a second noise-cancelling microphone, and a USB-C charging port.

On the rear, you get a quad camera setup. Now, this includes a 50MP main camera with an aperture of f1.8, a 5MP wide camera with an aperture of f2.2, a 2MP macro camera with an aperture of f2.4, and a 2MP depth camera with an aperture of F2.4. There’s also a front camera for selfies on top of the display, rated at 8MP with an aperture of f2.0. The front camera also supports face unlock.

In terms of the internals, the phone is powered by Mediatek Helio G37 processor, coupled with 4GB RAM and 128GB internal storage. The storage can also be expanded to up to 1TB using a microSD card. The phone runs on the Android 12 operating system with Honor’s MagicUI 6.1 running on top of it.

One of the highlights of the X7a is that it comes with a huge 6000mAh battery. In addition, you also get a 22.5W HONOR SuperCharge, allowing you to charge the HONOR X7a rapidly. So, in just a 30-minute charge, you can get more than 10 hours of battery life. HONOR claims that the X7a lasts for 3 days on a single charge. During our tests, we observed that our unit lasted a bit more than 3 days on a daily usage scenario.

The HONOR X7a has also entered the DXOMARK smartphone battery rankings in first place, earning the DXOMARK Gold Battery Label in recognition of its outstanding battery performance. The overall performance of the device is quite good, too. We did not encounter any stutter or lags when switching between multiple app windows.

Gaming performance is also very good, thanks to HONOR’s RAM Turbo technology, which uses a part of the storage as virtual memory when using memory-hungry apps. You also get an eBook Mode in the HONOR X7a, which lets you focus on reading, with the colour temperature being adjusted automatically based on your reading environment. The phone’s Dark Mode offers deeper and softer colours, making the X7a perfect for night-time reading as well.

The cameras on this thing are also very good for a mid-range smartphone. Under good lighting conditions, the HONOR X7a can take very good images and videos. Even under low light conditions, the camera performed well.

The HONOR X7a is a brilliant smartphone that offers 3 days of battery on a single charge, good design and build quality, a good camera module, and a good overall experience at a very attractive price of AED 599.
