Phone Set Up
The Honor 7C has face recognition that works extremely well and quickly. In fact, Honor claim that their face recognition is faster that that on the iPhone X. The system gains its security through matching 1,024 facial points.
If you prefer, you can use the fingerprint reader instead. This is located on the back and is nicely positioned for a natural tap of the finger.
You can easily move your old phone content over onto the ample 32GB internal memory. If you download loads of content like games and videos, then the memory can be boosted by inserting an up to 256GB microSD card.
If you like gaming on your smartphone then the Huawei Honor 7C has a special Gaming Mode. You can mute notifications and change a variety of settings, but the best news is about the processor.

Android 8.0 Oreo and EMUI 8.0
The Huawei Honor 7C runs of Google’s Android Oreo OS and this is tweaked by Huawei, through its EMUI user interface. The experience can tailored with a variety of modes such as Driving Mode, Pocket Mode and One-Click Split Mode. You can also add one-step shortcuts and activate a floating Navigation Dock.

There is also dual bluetooth, which can be handy if you connect to a bluetooth headset and bluetooth speakers. This means that your music can play out loud while you take a call on your bluetooth headset.
Camera & Video
Dual lens camera
The Huawei Honor 7C has a dual lens camera, consisting of a 13MP lens and a 2MP lens. One of the lenses captures the image, while the other is used for depth detection. This allows you to capture accurate depth of field (bokeh) effects, where you can blur the background.

The 8MP selfie camera has an intelligent and adjustable soft light. You can set this to auto or you can manually adjust the three levels yourself. This feature really enhances the quality of the results that you can capture, when the environmental lighting isn’t ideal.
Long life battery
The 3,000mAh battery in the Huawei Honor 7C has been designed to have a long life. The battery capacity should still be at around 80%, even after 500 recharges. The USB charging connector has a metal protection layer, durable enough to last 10,000 plug ins.
Battery deterioration over time has always be a niggle, but this will play much less of a part if you purchase the Honor 7C.
