Camera

Camera is a significant part of a smartphone and after last year, it had become a deal breaker for many people. Before 2017, camera was measured on the basis of details and crispness that it provided, but since then the camera world has changed and now the smartphones are more than capable of giving you shots close to the quality of professional cameras. The dual camera setups and the low apertures with portrait shots is a great deal now.

The Honor 7C launched with a dual camera setup which was hard to beat. Both the lenses are primary lenses with aperture f/2.0 that allows large amount of light to enter thus improving the image quality even in low lighting conditions. There are companies like Huawei who released a device with three camera modules in the rear, separate for RGB and monochrome but Honor does their work perfectly with just two. The new sensors will help in improving the quality of portrait shots.

Storage

Storage is one of those area in which Honor fades to comply. The main variant has 64 GB of internal storage. But the story does not end there, they have got the option of external storage available. You can use a memory card of up to 256 gb and get all the space you need. On the RAM department, the 4 gigs of RAM is ample to perform all your tasks.

Software

The software experience of Honor devices is a great experience and over Oreo they just created a marvel here. They run a close to stock ROM with some minor tweaks which makes it an all-round experience.

Battery

Battery has always been a strong suit for Honor devices. They have always given big batteries in their devices. Battery is an important part of a smartphone and is a deal breaker for many. The One Plus six houses a 3000 mAh battery which, from experience from Honor 8, can easily last a whole day. And with Honor’s own fast charging technology, Smart Power 5.0, which is evidently amongst the fastest charging in the market, the device will get enough juice to last a whole day in just a charge of an hour.

What’s so special

Since their beginning, Honor has been the flagship provider and set to defeat the more expensive high-end devices. Like before, the Honor 7C is loaded with top notch specifications. With the latest Qualcomm snapdragon 450 processor, an upgrade in the interface and specially the camera department will be visible.

When it comes to the memory department, the device will come with 4 GB of RAM and an internal memory of 64GB expandable up to 256 GB. The primary camera is a dual camera setup with one of the lens being 13 MP shooters while the other one is a 2MP one. The front selfie camera is an 8 MP shooter and would be adequate for some great selfies. A battery of 3000 mAh is going to support this huge display which would easily provide backup for more than a day.

There was loads of new things to capture your attention in the new Honor 7C. Be it the all new glass back or the tall display in the front, everything was just perfect and very 2018-ish. The top four things from the first impression of the Honor 7C are:

  1. 18:9 aspect ratio display
  2. Newly designed fingerprint sensor
  3. Revamped dual camera setup
  4. The headphone jacks
