Huawei Honor 7 now available to order globally for under $500

Huawei Honor 7 now available to order globally for under $500
Released earlier this month in China (where 9 million units have been pre-ordered in one week), the Honor 7 is Huawei's latest high-end Android smartphone, offering a slew of attractive features at an equally attractive price (around $322 for the 16 GB model).

While the Honor 7 isn't officially available outside of China, customers around the world can now get it thanks to retailer OppoMart (which usually sells many China-made devices). Of course, the handset is more expensive at OppoMart than it would be if you'd buy it directly from China, costing $429, plus about $20 for shipping, depending on exactly where you're based.

The Huawei Honor 7 that can be ordered from OppoMart only supports LTE band 1 and band 3, which means it is compatible with LTE networks in some European and Asian countries, but not in North America. That aside, the smartphone's features include a 5.2-inch 1080p display, a 64-bit octa-core HiSilicon Kirin 935 processor clocked at 2.2 GHz, 3 GB of RAM, microSD card support, a 3100 mAh battery, and Android Lollipop. The new Honor also has a fingerprint scanner, a 20 MP rear camera with phase detection auto focus, and an 8 MP front-facing camera.

Later this year, the Honor 7 should be officially released in Europe. Huawei didn't say if it's also planning to sell the device in North America, but we'll let you know when we find out.

hot hands? I have the M9 with the 810 and it gets as hot as the S6 or less, so both are the same in that department.

Have not used the honor 7, I was just pointing out the over exaggeration that people have over the SD810 when it works just fine and heats up normally, no more than the S6, from personal experience when I compared them.

If they had a model that supported US lte bands I would seriously consider this over the Note 5. The design looks beautiful to me.

Check out the review of the huawei mediapad X2 which has the same GPU and be ready to be dissapointed. Wait for the huawei nexus as it will not use the crappy socs huawei use.

what is your opinion on Lenovo vibe shot? it is the third time I'm asking in this website sorry, but I need more opinions. I want to buy my girlfriend the best smartphone available for under 400$. since she likes to take pictures with both front and back cameras I'm thinking of Lenovo vibe shot instead of Zenfone 2, Meizu MX5 or Huwawei Honor 7. Do you think it is the right choice?

Go for Honor 7. 20MP IMX230 camera. 8mp front camera with soft led flash. Much more user friendly UI. More support. More features. Great battery. 5.2 inch portable size. Ofcourse don't buy from Oppomort. Cheaper available at Aliexpress. Or if you can wait, the European version is expected to release by September.

I think the overseas price is expensive for 16gb. Oppomart obviously want to take advantage of the hype. I'll just wait in a few weeks for local distributors for the 64gb model.

I am planing to buy the Honor 7 in China. Do you think I will be able to use the Chinese version in Germany, Hungary, Brazil and Colombia?
