Metal-clad Huawei Honor 7: all the official images

Metal-clad Huawei Honor 7: all the official images
Samsung led the way this year, switching from a plastic to a premium metal-and-glass housing for its flagship Galaxy S6, and most everyone followed suit. Huawei was one of the makers that did use metal for its flagships' exterior before, but with the new Honor 7, the premium quality moves to its midrangers, too.

The Honor 7 sports an aluminum alloy exterior, and 5.2" 1080p display with 423ppi. It is run by the company's own 64-bit Kirin 935 chipset, clocked at 2.2 GHz maximums for a quartet of Cortex-A53 cores, and 1.5 GHz for the other A53 set of four, arranged in a big.LITTLE configuration, with ARM's Mali-T628 GPU doing the graphical heavy lifting. The phone comes with 3 GB RAM and 16-64 GB internal memory, plus a microSD slot for expansion. Honor 7 is housed in a 143.2 x 71.9 x 8.5mm chassis, and weighs 157g.

Here we come to the impressive parts about the affordable Honor 7 - it will ship with a 20 MP rear camera, just as speculated, which will sport Phase Detection Auto Focus to boot. This likely means that the newest Sony sensor is onboard, with an F2.0 aperture, 6-lens module, and sapphire glass for added protection. The front-facing camera is no slouch either, featuring an 8 MP resolution and wide-angle lens. Beneath the rear camera one would find a touch fingerprint sensor, just like on the Mate7, that can unlock the phone with one tap only.

How much for all that jazz? Well, we are glad you asked, because this metal warrior with 20 MP shooters is coming in at the very affordable $322 for the base 16 GB model, then $355 for the dual SIM LTE version, and, finally, the 64 GB Honor 7 will cost you about $400 - take a look at all the official Huawei Honor 7 photos below, and tell us what you think about the value-for-money ration in this one.

When you do reviews, can you please also include the usable storage of the device? It's quite misleading for manufacturers to boast 16, 32, or 64gb then people will just get disappointed after finding out that the internal storage are all bloats and eaten by large system, thanks.

Having the mate 7, I can say that while it feels great and is beautifully made. The UI, the processor, battery life, is not up to flagship standards. Had to go back to the Note 4..

But why it's so ugly and generic. Without the name I'd say it's some $100 cheapo.

You know what's ugly? iPhone 6. So slippery for grip it shames the butter. Put it side by side with S6, G4 and Xperias and it looks like a toy for hippies.

Huawei has been using metal since the days of Ascend P6 back in 2013.

Its a nice phone, so this is the smaller version of the mate 7. The mate 7 is a really well build, nice premium quality, software is nice too, one of the best fingerprint scanners. The camera is better than most average smart phones. So the honor 7 gets big points.
