Honor has introduced two new devices in the budget segment in India by the name of Honor 7C and the Honor 7A. Sporting a similar design language and firepower, both the smartphones basically differ in their size. Honor 7A comes as the scaled down variant of the two and boasts of a dual camera setup at the back, a full-screen display and the latest Android operating system. So is this enough to make it stand apart from its competitors at its price range? We find out in this review.


Honor has used its signature style statement on both the smartphones and it does justice to the Honor 7A to an extent. The device is simple and elegant in the first look and its compact size also makes sure of the ease of use for single-handed users. The only hard keys on the smartphone are placed on the right, with the volume rockers placed above the power key. The full view display is surrounded by thin bezels on the side and thicker bezels at the top and the bottom. While the bottom bezel sports the Honor logo, the top houses the selfie camera, LED flash and an earpiece.

It’s the back of the Honor 7A which is a bit more attractive than the front. The dual camera setup has been placed on the top left, aligning with the top antennae band. The fingerprint sensor has been placed at the centre and there is another antennae band running at the bottom of the back panel. Right above it is another Honor logo. All in all, it’s a neat arrangement of elements on the Honor 7A that also looks pleasing to the eye. The plastic back also makes sure there are no fingerprint smudges left on the smartphone upon use.
