Honor 7S review
From under £100
Our UK Honor 7S review uncovers a phone that has a price starting from £99. You probably wouldn’t expect much from a phone that is priced as low as this, but the Honor 7S does have charms for those who want a phone for less than £100.
The Honor 7S has a 5.45” LCD FullView Display and Honor promotes the fact that the front is 73% screen. The point Honor is trying to make is that there is a bigger screen in a smaller body. This is true and the ugliness of large bezels are gone, although there is more space above and below the screen in comparison to a premium phone.

The display offers a resolution of 1440x 720 pixels, which is comparable or just above its competition. There is a blue light filter so if you suffer from strained eyes in the evening, then this feature is one that you will really appreciate.
The body of the phone is polycarbonate (plastic) and while we like the feel of metallic phones, this phone will take scratches and chips and still keep looking good. The Honor 7S is pretty slim at 8.3mm and very light at 142g. If you buy the Honor 7S, then you will have a choice of colours including Black, Blue, and Gold.
New: Honor 10 Lite review
The Honor 7S has a larger receiver volume and with this feature, the volume is adjusted intelligently to tackle background noise. Inside, a 1.5GHz MediaTek processor with 2GB RAM powers the experience. Just like other phones in this price bracket, you will encounter a small delay when opening apps or games. This delay isn’t too annoying unless you have owned a premium phone in the past.

Phone Set Up
The Honor 7S does not have a fingerprint sensor but you can secure the phone with a PIN or pattern. If you want to move content over to the phone, then there is a 16GB internal memory (10GB available to the user). This memory isn’t huge but there is an up to 256GB microSD card slot, so boosting the memory isn’t a big issue.
The Honor 7S has the latest version of Android Oreo (8.1) and the overall look of the icons and menus are improved with Honor’s EMUI 8.0 user interface. You will get a pre-loaded set of Google and Honor apps, a Themes app, games and the Google Now feed.
The Google Now feed can be dragged in from the left side of the home screen. You get a search box at the top and news stories relating to topics that you find interesting.
Camera & Video
The 5MP portrait camera has a LED Selfie Light that intelligently adjusts the light to the environment. Many phones don’t get an LED flash for selfies, so this is a big plus for the Honor 7S.
The 13MP HD camera has fast focus and with HDR, your photos dark and light elements are captured with great detail. If you like to shoot video, then you can do so at a quality of 1080p.
