Super mid-ranger Honor 7X up for pre-order on Amazon, see when you can get it

Honor 7X, one of the top value for money phones of early 2018, is now available for pre-order on Amazon. The super mid-ranger is classified as "#1 New Release" in Amazon's "unlocked cell phones" category, and the e-commerce site says that units will officially start shipping on January 25, 2018.
The units sold by Amazon are unlocked and compatible with GSM carriers. You won't have trouble using them on AT&T and T-Mobile, but LTE won't be available if you're on Sprint or Verizon. They are covered by the standard 1-year limited warranty.
As expected, the starting price for the US model is set at $200. Here's what these two Benjamins will get you:
- Metal back, "all-screen" design up front
- 5.93" IPS 1080p display with 18:9 aspect ratio
- Octa-Core Kirin 659 2.36GHz chipset
- 3GB RAM
- 32GB Internal Storage + microSD support
- 16MP + 2MP main dual camera
- 8MP front camera
- 3,340mAh battery
- EMUI 5.1 (based on Android 7.0 Nougat)
By the way, the 7X will also get Face Unlock in the next few months. However, there are a few things missing from this smartphone that are worth pointing out. The 7X uses a micro USB port for charging (not the reversible USB-C), and there's no NFC on board. Thus, if you're using Android Pay a lot, it might not be a good fit for you.

Same here. I sent mine back. It lagged so bad and the camera lag is just absolutely unbearable. I also had those purple and red blotches on taken photos here and there. First time in my life to see that happening, lol. Phone seems nice but meh. Kinda sad to let it go cuz I love the front look and the both cameras' photo quality.
