Keeping this aspect in mind Honor 7X comes with a stable EMUI 5.1 operating system, which is built over Google’s Android 7.0 Nougat and has tons of gestures, features, and customizable options. This perfect of blend of beauty and performance gets it power from a 3340 mAh lithium-ion non-removable battery. Its battery can give a standby time of 647 hours and talk time of up to 21 hours on 3G network on a single full charge.

    Camera definition: In 2018, most of the phones host a dual camera setup at the back for bokeh effect and Huawei Honor 7X falls in this category. It has a 16 MP f/2.2 and 2 MP camera at the back with phase detection, autofocus, geo-tagging, HDR and many features that are more useful. At the front, we get an 8 MP f/2.0 shooter which can record videos at 1080p.
