Great phone let down by terrible battery life. Even with latest software updates and power manager enabled to close apps when the screen is off, CPU throttled, etc, it won't last a full day. If you browse a lot (> than 2-3 hours), use social media frequently, hourly or push email synching and watch a few video's, the Honor 7 is no good without a topup charge. Battery is 100% at 7am and by 9pm it's down to 5%. If you're gonna also use it for gaming it's even worse. You want good battery life, get a Sony or Lenovo, nobody else understands that a smartphone without power is just a brick.
All these phones with stupid power draining 1080 full HD screens is just pointless. 720 is perfectly fine and with far more battery life.

milo, 06 Jan 2016redmi note 3 or honor 7?Dearest gsmArena.com follower and friend.Though Redmi note 3 has good qualities without memory external sim card and just 32 gigabytes of built in memory But honor 7 in all aspects and specifications has much more superior qualities unbiasedly speaking!!I don't know the honor 7 price and both are Chinese upper midrange and even with more better advanced apps,honor 7 would be in the high ends now,I myself if I had a choice,I would choose Honor 7 for good support and after sales care!!!Honor 7 as a subsidiary of Huawei is much more superior to many famous brand machine gun producer of nowadays that I don't like to mention their names!!!Also gsmArena.com suggesting shopping guidelines or Honor 7 review proves my opinion!!Anyway good luck and happy with your choice to enjoy it friend.
Any suggestions on whether to go for Honor 7 or HTC One M8 Eye? Both are available at similar price point. HTC M8 Eye is a tried and tested, rock stable model and Honor 7 has some useful features like fingerprint and customizable button. Both have a metal unibody, non removable batter and will soon be on Android 6.
jabs, 02 Jan 2016is software good in honor 7.i need information.is it better than iphone5s. Dear friend, Honor 7 is way better of iphone 5s, and even iphone 6. Depends what you expect and what are your needs, but this phone is really good and software are well balanced. Thumb up for this device.
I want to buy Homor 7 but I am not sure if I can download the whatsapp app on it....any help please....
whenever I unlock my phone useing finger print lock thats time my all running apps automatically closed so what should I do plz suggest me
After a lot of searching, testing and thinking I got my Honor 7.
To be honest I am using this as my secondary device and I am very much pleased with my selection. I was looking in between Iphone 5s, HTC one ME and Honor 7.
Finally made my choice and bought it.
1. Great 1080p display ( It comes very close to my S6 display)
2. Great Battery Life.
3. Decent Camera.
4. Fast fingerprint sensor, faster than S6 & iphone 6.
5. Great Built quality.
6. Great network receptions.
7. Fast & Fluid UI
8. Lots of useable options like smart key, FP navigation etc..
1. Camera is not up to the mark for low light & indoor conditions. (A software update may fix this issue)
2. I am really surprised that Honor left out the 4K recording option and even 1080p 60fps also.
3. Bit big for a 5.2 inch screen, honor might have utilized the bottom chin and have given the capacitive buttons (This is my wish though)
4. Only 16gb and single sim version available in India which is really disappointing.
The best higher midrange device I have used till date and guys don't think twice to buy this.
I would rate this 9.5/10.
PS: I am not able to play 4K videos even using third party players. Any suggestion from existing Honor 7 users would be appreciated.
I would like to buy enhanced version of this model.. Can someone tell where it is available? If possible share a link to buy
